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.Sent on 10/27/2019

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! :)
