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.Sent on 09/06/2019
The Glastonbury Boathouse's reply: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! :)

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.Sent on 07/05/2019
