Facilities and Capacity
The Boathouse at Mercer Lake is newly renovated space, with a quaint lakeside gazebo, outdoor reception area, and modern indoor event space. Outdoors, you’ll be surrounded by lush forest greenery and the rolling New Jersey hills. The gazebo, used for most outdoor wedding ceremonies, overlooks Mercer lake for a beautiful view no matter what time of day or season. Once the ceremony is complete, you have a choice of two indoor venues for your reception. The Lakeside Ballroom, with a maximum capacity of 250 guests, offers 19’ vaulted ceilings, a dance floor, and custom lighting as well as a dropdown LED projection system. The ballroom is ideal for large events and more modern reception parties. The smaller Cove Room offers space for 40 guests. It offers a more relaxed, intimate setting for small receptions, or your rehearsal dinner and after-wedding brunch.

  • My husband and I fell in love with the atmosphere when we first arrived. Not only is the venue itself amazing but the staff is incredible. They did anything and everything they could to make sure our day was everything we dreamt of. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was spectacular! Special shout out to Sonya who was amazing and supportive during the whole process especially because we had to postpone twice. The Boathouse will always have a special place in my heart.
