The Waterview

Stunning lakefront views, dramatic ballrooms, contemporary cuisine, and superior service... this combination is what makes the Waterview the most desirable event destination in Connecticut.

"We booked the Waterview for our wedding almost a year and a half before our date, and knew the moment we saw it that it was right for us. Not only was the venue gorgeous, but the food was amazing and the staff phenomenal. They did everything possible to make our day perfect and I can't thank them enough for everything they did. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a stress free experience in planning their wedding."
