About Us



The Boathouse is a 5,200 sqft. special events building located on the water’s edge of Lake Charlevoix. Nearly 300ft of Lake Charlevoix shoreline is available for exclusive and private use by clients.



Outdoors or in, The Boathouse on Lake Charlevoix provides a gorgeous waterfront setting for weddings and special events. The Boathouse staff pride themselves on making your special event an exceptional, authentic and memorable experience.



There are accommodations conveniently located onsite. One of the rental units, referred to as Gunther's Cottage, gives a nod to the building's decades-ago role as a general store, as well as a family that owned it in that era. Designed as a couple's retreat, the unit's furnishings include vintage Coca-Cola coolers, an antique cash register and a stool-lined counter. The neighboring property, referred to as the Goodman Cottage, features more of a cottage decor, and houses many guests but pays homage with its name to a hardware business which operated there in the past.
