Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • A historic, classic 1920s boathouse surrounded by eighteen lush acres on Shelter Island, this newly renovated spot offers relaxed, “weekend getaway” vibes and gorgeous sunset views.
  • Let West Neck Harbor’s gentle waters dotted with pretty boats set the scene for your ceremony. Snap some photos along the dock and marina before joining your guests for a celebratory toast on the deck, where you’re shaded by a cheerful blue and white striped awning.
  • Inside the rustic-chic Boathouse, you’ll find an open-rafter ceiling with original wood beams, exposed ductwork, and elegant chandeliers. Accordion doors open to the deck space, allowing the party to flow beautifully, and the awning features side walls that can be lowered on chillier evenings.
