    Couldn’t of asked for a better venue

    The Glastonbury Boathouse was the first venue my fiancé and I looked at while we were wedding planning and we put a deposit down that day. I knew I’d never find a place that compared. The venue manager, Kristen was amazing to work with. She answered my emails almost immediately and was so accommodating. I highly recommend this venue for couples that are looking to have their ceremony onsite, as the waterfront and sunset make for amazing ceremony pictures.

    Beautiful Venue

    Working with Kristen was fantastic - she was always very responsive to emails and answered all questions (and I had a lot, especially toward the end). The Boathouse was such a beautiful venue - I had so many guests comment on how great the location was. I absolutely loved the water views, upper covered deck, and the indoor space (especially with the addition of string lights across the ceiling). I think the price is very reasonable for such a nice place, compared to others I considered. I highly recommend this venue! The only thing you have to think about (and make clear to guests) is parking, since a lot of the main parking lot gets filled by people with boats, and then guests have to park in the "overflow" parking area.

    Thank you Danielle! We're so glad you and your guests enjoyed your experience. Wishing you all the best and hope you're enjoying life as newlyweds! :)
