Why We Like This Place

  • It boasts historic charm and modern amenities. Though the clubhouse was built in 1892, the rooms have a warm, updated feel. Your guests will enjoy roaming the building, checking out the maritime artifacts, heritage artwork, and antique ship models.
  • You can choose an indoor or outdoor ceremony option, or combine the two. After saying “I do” in the more intimate clubhouse, invite your guests out onto seven acres of lawn that stretch to the Delaware River. Then dance the night away under the large, festive tent overlooking the water.
  • Memorable photo ops abound amid the sailboats and yachts on the river. Let your photographer follow you as you wander around the slips, with boats cruising the Delaware in the background and seagulls soaring overhead.
