  • The venue location has a pretty view and the food was good. However I had a recent wedding there and the service by the staff was terrible for the ceremony rehearsal and the wedding day. First of all, for our ceremony rehearsal we had a staff member who was not our wedding coordinator and could care less how the rehearsal went or any of the details. The staff member who was suppose to guide us through our rehearsal was 30 minutes late to the rehearsal. Luckily our Pastor was extremely organized and ran the entire rehearsal ceremony himself. The day of the wedding we were assigned a maitre d' who we never worked with before and did not know any of the details of our wedding. Neither my coordinator nor maitre d' knew our processional order, although we sent it weeks in advance. My bridal party and I were checking times and were the ones to line up and say it is time to go down. During the cocktail hour my husband and I were taking photos. However we were never asked if we wanted any... Read more

  • Our wedding in August at the Boathouse at Mercer Lake was absolutely perfect. We had the ceremony in the gazebo, the cocktail hour on the deck, and the reception in the ballroom. If you are looking for a place that has it all - elegance w/o being stuffy, delicious food, ample space to dance, and beautiful scenery, then look no further! Sonya was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. She was always attentive to email and guided me and my husband through the entire planning process. She is a true professional, kept us at ease, and we knew we were in good hands with her. The staff the night of the wedding was also fabulous, attentive, and professional. I highly recommend the Boathouse to any couple looking for something truly special and unique.

  • We hosted our wedding at the Boathouse in May and worked with Daniela as our venue coordinator. Daniela was very responsive to email and always very courteous. She responded to our questions promptly and sent us copies of our contact any time we needed to make revisions. She also let us customize our menu to better fit our budget. Overall, we are very pleased with the level of professionalism and service at the Boathouse. The venue itself was also recently renovated so it is modern with floor to ceiling windows that overlook the lake. If I could offer one critique, it would be with the food. We thought the food was fine but nothing to write home about. The food we tasted at the food tasting was better than the food served on the wedding day, but that may have been due to the sheer quantity of food that needed to be prepared for the wedding. Overall, we are happy that we went with the Boathouse and believe Daniela and the staff did an excellent job making our wedding day run sm... Read more

  • We LOVED the Boat House at Mercer Lake for our wedding venue! The staff was super hands on and the food was tasty. Especially that sushi bar! All of our guests raved the venue, sushi bar and overall lake side, nautical atmosphere. Daniela our coordinator was great. She answered every email and question quickly, was kind and worked to make every detail perfect. We defiantly recommend this venue for a wedding

  • Our wedding was this past November at the Boathouse at Mercer Lake and it was absolutely beautiful! We worked with Sonya who was an absolute dream to work with. She was quick to respond to all of our questions and made sure we got everything we requested before, during and after our wedding. Our ceremony, cocktail hour and reception were all amazing. The food was FANTASTIC. Staff were beyond nice and accommodating. Beautiful amazing venue!!!

  • The Boathouse at Mercer Lake gave us the absolute perfect wedding venue. It was everything we were looking for and it couldn't have surpassed our expectations any more than it did! Everything was perfect on the actual day, and the staff, decor, service, and aesthetics were all on point. The Gazebo made for a perfect spot for our ceremony... and our food, don't even get me started. It was UNREAL! Daniela, Sonya, Erin and the staff took care of our every need leading up to and on our big day, and we can't picture our special day having happened anywhere else. Book your wedding here. You won't be sorry.

  • Our wedding was on May 20, 2018. From the first visit, our experience with the Boathouse at Mercer Lake was a dream. Daniela was our event coordinator and she made the whole process very smooth. We live in Michigan, so we communicated a lot via e-mail. She completely understood our vision and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. The space is beautiful and the park is lovely for pictures. The staff was attentive and were always happy to help in any way they could. There is only one wedding at a time, so your party has the whole space. Wedding planning can be stressful, but the Boathouse team ensured a beautiful day for me, my husband, and our loved ones.

  • We had our wedding at the Boathouse on 5/5. The ceremony was beautiful, the cocktail hour had amazing food, and the reception space was gorgeous. All of the service was amazing and flawless. As the bride, I had wine and cheese waiting for me before the ceremony. They also made sure I did not see my groom until the ceremony. During cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres and drinks were sent to the bridal suite for myself, the groom, and the bridal party. The buffet lines were not long during the reception. Everyone complimented the food, especially the BBQ station. As the bride and groom, we had 3 plates of buffet food on our table waiting for us. Our water and wine glasses were always filled. Everyone working there had a smile on their face and was very accommodating to needs, especially my gluten allergy. They were able to make as many food items gluten free for me as they could. Sonya and Daniella were always there to help. They answered every email and phone call promptly to get us what we ne... Read more

  • Pros: Beautiful Facility. Responsive, flexible staff, that will go above and beyond the call of duty. Lots of menu choices, comes with wedding cake. Great caterer and bar staff. Cons: Fairly expensive. (We had 100 guests on a Sunday, ceremony onsite, plated dinner with no additions around $17,500) TLDR; Book here if you want to plan your wedding with a responsive, professional staff in a lovely ballroom with lots of natural light. -- Our wedding was Sunday October 1st, 2017 at 3pm- we booked this venue for both the ceremony and the reception in early December of 2016. Our onsite coordinator was Daniela Composto, and she is an absolute dream to work with! She thoroughly explained what the venue could offer and was incredibly flexible about customization. After visiting our other top choices in the area we knew this was the place. Over the last year she really helped us as we refined what we wanted from the day. When we weren't 100% satisfied with the appetizers we tried at our ... Read more

  • We had our wedding at the Boathouse on 9-22-17 and it was absolutely breathtaking. The weather could not have been more perfect, so we had our ceremony outside at the gazebo, and the view was truly stunning. Our cocktail hour was out on the deck, and the set up was perfect for our wedding of 100 people. The food during both the cocktail hour and reception was excellent. The ballroom was a great size for our wedding, and offered beautiful views of the lake. We also did a dessert station with cakes and waffles and ice cream, which was a huge hit with our guests. Our guests are still raving about everything, from the breathtaking view from the deck, to the quality and quantity of food. We worked with Lindsay, Daniela, and Sonya who were all extremely responsive to emails, answered any questions we had, and did everything they could to accommodate our requests. Our Maitre'd, Alex, was absolutely fantastic. He was extremely attentive at both the rehearsal and wedding, and frequently c... Read more

  • Due to special circumstances (my husband is in the military), we decided to plan our wedding in a very short time frame. Luckily, the Boathouse was available on our wedding date and they worked with our schedule and budget! The beautiful property speaks for itself and once we toured the venue we knew we made the right choice! From our first meeting until our wedding date, Daniela, our wedding coordinator, went above and beyond to accommodate all of our requests and was very responsive to my inquiries. Daniela was extremely friendly and professional, along with Erin and Jen and the rest of the staff. The reception was perfect and our guests had a fantastic time. If you are looking for a unique setting with excellent service and food, I would highly recommend the Boathouse at Mercer Lake!

  • We had our wedding at the Boathouse in April. Lindsay, our wedding coordinator, was extremely helpful and flexible. The groom and I don't eat meat and she was able to accommodate our requests and offer vegetarian and vegan options as well as meat options for the other guests. The food was really, really good. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous. The wall of windows lets in a ton of light, the deck is perfect with a stunning view of the lake, even the chairs are pretty. Everything was set up for us when we arrived on our wedding day and we had to do minimal work. We dropped everything off (guest book, centerpiece stuff, favors, signs, etc.) the night before and they put everything together perfectly. Lindsay and her staff even filled in the table with candles and little details to round out the centerpieces. I had such a fun time at the wedding. I didn't worry about anything, the bridal attendant was the best and everything was taken care of. I would definitely recommend the Boathou... Read more

  • From the moment we got engaged, my husband and I knew we wanted to have our reception at the Boathouse. We loved the feel of the county park, the view of the lake, and the simple elegance of the room. It was exactly the right amount of not-too-formal but still upscale that we wanted for our summer wedding. We were happy to hear some glowing reviews of the Boathouse from friends, and they weren't wrong. The package included a bridal suite, catering, the cake, a full open bar, tables, chairs, linens, and even menus! The food was EXCELLENT, and the whole day went off without a problem. We were blessed with perfect weather to enjoy the cocktail hour out on the deck and enjoy the full view of the sunset over the lake through the glass windows in the reception room. It was truly the perfect day. My only (small) complaint is that the Boathouse changed our coordinator three times throughout our planning process, finally landing on the one who ended up actually doing our wedding only a coupl...

  • My family and I had a great experience working with Sonya at the Boathouse. My husband and I do not live in the area, and she was able to make sure any in-person meetings and the tasting were able to happen on weekends when we would already be in the area. The food was DELICIOUS and we got many compliments. We highly recommend adding on the breakfast sandwich station for the end of the wedding. They were also great about working with food allergies, which is a relief since I myself have allergies. A 3-tier cake from Palermos is included in the price of the venue, which was also great and simplified things. The venue itself is beautiful and open, with a great outdoor space when the weather is nice. The cocktail hour had to be moved inside due to the weather and that was a little cramped because we had a lot of guests. The Boathouse definitely made it work the best that they could. The only negative we had was we thought we were told when we signed our contract that no other e... Read more
