    Beautiful, affordable, and easy

    The boathouse was an absolutely beautiful space for our indoor winter wedding and reception. They decorate the boathouse for the holiday season automatically, and we kept most of their decorations (for free!) in addition to adding our own. They even worked with us to blend their decoration style with the theme for our wedding (changing up some of the colors they typically use). The room is large, airy, and bright. There was plenty of room for our ceremony and reception (think 70 guests). There are great places for pictures outdoors, with the water or even the boathouse itself as a backdrop. Kristen was very responsive and easy to work with. The caterers were very flexible and helped us design a luncheon even though they do not specialize in luncheons for weddings. We had a lovely experience at a very affordable price tag. Highly recommend.

    Perfect Location!

    We fell in love with this location the minute we saw pictures online! We went to visit and knew this was the perfect location. It is perfect, lots of windows, natural light, and a beautiful view. We held our short and sweet ceremony down by the water, where our guests had plenty of room. Cocktail hour on the upper deck and had plenty of room for our guests in the dining room, along with a huge dance floor and room for our photo booth!
