Boathouse Annex & Tented North Patio


Lakeside entertaining at its best.


Although the Boathouse is not offered as a wedding reception venue, the Boathouse Annex and Tented North Patio provide wonderful ambiance for engagement parties, bridal showers, and rehearsal dinners!

The Boathouse Annex in Forest Park was originally built as a boat storage facility. The building has since been renovated and tastefully decorated in a fishing-cottage motif. The large spacious interior is adorned with antiques, a large moose head and Vermont pot bellied stove, making it the ideal place for fun and casual events, such as bridal showers. The Boathouse Annex overlooks the Post Dispatch Lake and is situated in a separate building adjacent to the Boathouse restaurant. It does not have air-conditioning. It does have forced air gas heating and a gas fireplace for use in winter months.

For private events occurring May-October, the Boathouse Tented North Patio offers a fantastic view of Forest Park and the Post Dispatch Lake. It is the perfect spot for engagement parties and rehearsal dinners!
