Rehearsal Dinner Venue in Upstate NY (Hillsdale/Columbia County area)


We are in the process of planning a rehearsal dinner for September 2012, and are searching for a venue after our planned venue recently backed out. Most of our guests will be staying in Hillsdale, NY, but we're looking for venues in any nearby (within 30 minute drive) town.

We are expecting 70 - 80 guests, and would like a venue that has outdoor space, with indoor availability in case of rain. We've already arranged for a local farmer to do a pig roast and a caterer will provide sides, and we will serve wine and beer.

We're really hoping for a laid-back event that celebrates the natural beauty of Columbia County.

Any insight would be most appreciated. Thanks!
