HERE’S WHAT BOATHOUSE CLIENTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THEIR EXPERIENCE WITH US…
“I can’t thank you and your staff enough for making our annual event another fabulous time for all employees. Your crew went above and beyond, helping with whatever we needed - including be human tethers and holding down the tents so they wouldn’t blow away. Everyone raved about the food - it was delicious! I would like to recognize Joe Marfuggi and his staff who were very helpful and raised the bar by personalizing the sports field with the Travelers Umbrella! This event is one our employees look forward to and without your commitment to excellence we wouldn’t be able to pull off a day of fun, sportsmanship and team bonding. From all of our staff to you we are greatly appreciative and look forward to working with you again in the future.”
Cathy - Travelers
“What a wonderful wedding it was!! I can’t thank you enough for all that you did to make the day perfect. I was so glad you were there to be part of it. Lauren and Mark both said that they couldn’t think of anything that could have made it better. You and Nanci must have worked especially hard to rustle up that full moon, too. It was such fun working with both of you. You make a great team and it is so obvious that you both love your work. Thanks for rescuing the bathroom baskets. I never thought to go back there. We’ll be in touch to figure out a time to retrieve them. Thanks again for everything!!”
Walt and Diana
“I just wanted to let you know that Saturday night was great!! Everyone had so much fun, the food was good, the DJ was great and they all loved the location. Thank you for everything and helping to make that happen!!”

“Just wanted to drop you another thank you for everything this weekend. The party went off without a hitch and we continue to hear only great reviews of the caterer and venue from everyone we’ve talked with since last night!”
Thanks again! Pete
“Oh wonderful, a successful event and I get money back. Couldn’t ask for anything better. Will always highly recommend the Boathouse and Riverfront Recapture although anyone who was there will not need much convincing. With gratitude.”
Ofelia - City of Waterbury
“Mike & I are just getting back from our honeymoon & I wanted to thank you for everything. The wedding (although a bit of a blur) was perfect and we had a wonderful time, and the staff was truly wonderful. I will send some pics your way when I get a chance!”
“Last Friday’s event was a great success because of you and the great team that you have at the Boathouse. I really appreciated all of the special amenities that you extended to me. We’ll have to “do lunch” one day soon to really catch up. Thank you again for everything.”
Connie – Barnes Group
“Thank you so much for all your help in planning this meeting/adventure. It was a tremendous success and the team found it very beneficial and fun! It will be hard to top!!”
Sheri - PI Product Management
“We cannot say enough about our experience at The Boathouse on June 16th. It was the most appropriate venue for us and it matched our personalties. Our guests were absolutely wowed. Many had never been and many who lived in the area never knew it existed. EVERYONE loved the atmosphere and being on the river. The day was absolutely beautiful. Sunny and a light breeze. When the wedding was over we just didn’t want to leave. Since our wedding I have made mention or recommended The Boathouse to friends who were looking for a picturesque venue. There are not many places on the Connecticut River and The Boathouse is the gem. Kris and her team at Ascot Catering did a phenomenal job with the food and drinks. Our guests expressed how delicious the hors d’oeuvres and buffet were. Thank you again for making our special day most memorable.” - S and G
The Riverfront Boathouse was made possible thanks to generous community support from individuals, businesses and foundations, led by the Greater Hartford Jaycees Foundation.
