Nestled in the heart of west suburban Glen Ellyn, on the banks of Lake Ellyn, the Boathouse can serve as the perfect locale for your next corporate or social gathering. The shore of the picturesque lake is resplendent with natural flora that accentuates the current season. The large deck off the eastside of the Boathouse provides spectacular views of the lake and resident wildlife.

Please note, the Lake Ellyn Boathouse closes mid-December through the end of February to serve as a warming house for outdoor skating and is unavailable to rent during that time.
