The most perfect venue -- The Boathouse SI
Our wedding at The Boathouse Shelter Island was a dream! James, Meghan and the rest of the team were amazing and made sure that we had the best day. Our guests LOVED the venue. It was a crazy year to plan a wedding, but James and Meghan were kind, patient, understanding, and truly our lifesavers. We absolutely recommend the venue to anyone looking for the best views + the best service. We wish we could do it again!Sent on 06/09/2021

Boathouse- Shelter Island
The Boathouse is a gorgeous venue for any event. The marina and bay views make for a gorgeous evening or daytime event. The exterior deck adds a wonderful dynamic to the party scene as well. The entire facility is new and very well-kept and clean. Megan and James did a phenomenal job for my husband’s 50th bDay. They were so helpful and flexible and very professional! I highly recommend the Boathouse.Sent on 05/14/2019
