Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • With a stunning setting at the edge of the Charles River, this sleek, contemporary boathouse, operated by Community Rowing, Inc., has a striking design that features wood, metal, and glass, and includes floor-to-ceiling windows that offer unforgettable views of the sunset.
  • There’s a beautiful outdoor area, as well—it can be tented in the event of inclement weather, or left unadorned so that your guests can enjoy the dock and surrounding green spaces. A covered, open-sided pavilion can serve as your chic cocktail spot.
  • Your rental fees help support Community Rowing in making the sport available to a diverse range of adults and children…and you’re also ensuring the organization can maintain the gorgeous Boathouse for generations to come.
