2009 Wedding Hudson Valley, Westchester

Hi All,

I am looking to have a wedding next Spring (Hoping for May 2009). There will be approximately 115-150 people. I am looking for a unique location within one hour from the city; I prefer something on the water and would like a place that also offers on site accomodation(if possible) . The key is I really do not want to spend more then $125/ person (including tax and grat) though. So far, I have come across Highlands Country Club ($110 pp) and am going to see that on Saturday.

I have also looked into Mohonk and Harvest on the Hudson, scenery wise they are both great but the only con is they do not do night weddings. My crowd likes to party so the place will have to be amenable to that. I am also open to reception ideas in the city but do not think that it is feasable at this price point. Any b & b's or Mansions or Estates or restaurants even that can be recommended would be greatly appreciated! My top 2 criterion (besides price) is great food and nice scenery.

Again any all feedback is appreciated. Thanks :)

  1. Check out the Wainwright house in Rye, NY - the outside is beautiful and the caterer seems fantastic. (I think his prices are also in your range.)

    1. The outside of Mohonk is beautiful - but I heard bad things about the food.

      1. We had similar numbers to you and criteria-- Although it's not on the water, the food, scenery (minus the water) and price all fit the bill at Round Hill near woodbury commons. Check out the website at Feast Caterers. It has a lot of character and Peter and Laura are wonderful to work with. Good luck!

        1. You should try Sunset Cove. They are on the Hudson in Tarrytown. Great Great Food! And I believe this would be in your price range too.

          1. Try the James House in Sleepy Hollow it is a Mansion located on the Phelps Memorial Hospital Property. You rent the place from them and then contract with one of their caterers. It has views of the hudson. There is also the Scarsdale Women's Club - same deal - rent the place and bring a caterer in. Good luck.
