Wedding - Hudson Valley Area?

Hello! I am searching for a wedding reception venue for next spring. We both love nature so we are looking for something outdoorsy that will accomodate 140 guests. I would love it to be indoors for the night time (don't love the idea of a tent) but somewhere that guests can wander outside. Would love to have fireworks or s'mores station. We don't have a huge budget, so something low key is ideal. We loved Full Moon Resort in Big Indian Resort but are looking for a 1 night event as opposed to a place where we need to sell out rooms at an inn for the weekend.

Anyone have any suggestions? We are open to CT also, just want scenic views and a low key environment. No huge mansions or fancy stuff.

  1. There is a wonderful place in Rhinebeck called Linwood. It has an incredible view of the Hudson River and a beautiful pavillion, so it is not completely outdoors. It is a retreat center, but they host weddings all the time.
