Colonial Mansion in White Plains?

Does anyone have any info on this catering hall? Looking for place for bat-mitzvah party for next fall and can't find any reviews. Any inside info would be helpful. Thanks.

    Have you considered the C.V. Rich mansion on Ridgeway? Here is a thread from a couple of years ago. Sounds interesting.

        To respond to OP, I don't have any personal experience with Colonial Mansion, but there's the web page in case you don't have it:

          I have been to events at both in the last 3 years. CV Rich is hands down better food and that is why I assume you are on chowhoound. Is this a kids only party or for both adults & kids? If it was just for kids I would say that colonial mansion is fine. if it's for the adults to then I would opt for cv rich or even the property that they cater at down the road from colonial...granted I think it's a Catholic school but the price may be right! also try the women's club of scarsdale or bronxville. I believe you can bring in your own caterer so budget may be better.

            I had my younger son's Bar Mitzvah party at the Woman's Club of White Plains, and found the accommodations to be wonderful for the 100+ guest list. The food was delicious and ample; the wait staff well managed. My daughter's Bat Mitzvah was at the James Mansion on the grounds of Phelps Memorial Hospital. The setting was spectacular, but it only accommodates a max of 80 guests. It is also more of a do-it-yourself venue (which I wanted); I hired my own caterer, florist, photographer, DJ, and it was fantastic! The rental cost of the mansion is paid by check to the hospital; I considered it to be a charitable donation for tax purposes.
