Fall 2009 wedding venue

I'm looking for a venue for my Fall 2009 wedding. Not sure if anywhere will still have availability at this point, but I love the look of places like Monteverde, but I think it might be a bit too far. I'm looking for great food in a rustic, farm-like setting. Anyone have any ideas?

  1. A friend of ours had a wedding near Hudson, NY on an apple orchard/farm. It was actually in a barn and was pretty cool. I don't know the name, but you could probably just google it.

      That sounds like Apple Barn Farm in Livingston, New York, right outside Hudson... here's their link...

        assuming that "far" for Monteverde means far from NYC, Hudson is seriously far.

    2. Great food in a rustic, farm-like setting = Blue Hill at Stone Barns. It's in Pocantico Hills, so it would be closer than Monteverde.

      1. My sons class went on a field trip last year to the Queens County Farm Museum. i don't know how rustic it is, you can use their caterer or bring in your own. Certainly close to Manhattan.

        1. I got married at the Vanderbilt Mansion in Centerport on Long Island. Great place and not typical LI.

          1. I just joined this site as I was searching for reviews of Monteverde as a wedding venue, as well. Researching, I found they recently lost their chef (Ferguson?) and wondering if anyone knew anything about the food/wedding biz there these days? we're also hoping for a fall wedding there! or another barn/destination wedding, hopefully in the hudson valley...
            any thoughts would be much appreciated! I also hear that Belvedere Mansion is a nightmare, though we looked at that...Also, looked at Troutbeck..beautiful setting, know nothing of the food, but the rooms were pretty tacky...
