New York-Hudson Valley

Location Help Needed!

Hi All, I'm new here :) My fiancé and I are trying to figure out a location for our casual wedding of about 60 people. He is from Copenhagen Denmark, and we've been living in Hoboken, NJ for 8 years. Beyond this, we don't know anything more than we hope to do it this summer. We'd really like to find an inn, so that as many people as possible to stay together with us. Ideally, a nice yard area with a fire pit. Casual, but still classy. We'd like to hold the ceremony in this location, but are open to doing dinner afterwards at a nearby restaurant if the inn cannot accommodate a sit down dinner. I found this beautiful place in Hudson, NY, but it is a bit far for some of our family in Ohio: http://barnonthepond.com/. Does anyone have any recommendations of a similar place a bit more south or west? Thanks so much!

  • A friend of mine recently got married here: http://www.vacamas.org/  I think you have to rent the space, which probably means providing your own catering, etc.  It was October, so the fall foliage pictures were beautiful.

    There is always the Bear Mountain Inn.  But that might be too large of a scale for you.  They do have the Overlook Lodge as well.

  • i was also going to say the Bear Mountain Inn.  I am having mine at the overlook lodge, which is part of bear mountain but about a mile up the road from the Inn and the min is 65 guests.   There is an outdoor area for the ceremony.  There are rooms available to stay at both the lodge and at the inn, as well as stone cottages that can be rented out.  Bear Mountain Inn is located on a state park, so it's a great outdoor setting - although I don't know that there are any fire pits.  

  • The Inn at Mill Race Pond in Hope, NJ sounds like mightl fit your needs.
