hudson valley wedding - help!

would be immensely grateful for suggestions. desperate and short on time! Looking to get married at a hudson valley restaurant in march 2014. I foresee a small event, 50 people or so, but many flying in from west coast, so would prefer to have whole thing at one place. would love a restaurant with scenic views, great (but not necessarily fancy) food, and kind accommodating staff who might be able to grant us a private room or area for a few hours. please, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Highly recommend half moon in Dobbs but not sure what they can offer a crowd that size and march is cutting it close. Kittle house in chappaqua does many events of different sizes.

    1. le chateau in south salem

      one stop shopping except for music and photographer

      given the short notice, you might have better luck with a luncheon

      1. Shadows on the Hudson in Poughkeepsie does a nice job with weddings. The view is great.

        1. re: applesauce23

          thank you for the advice - much appreciated!

        2. Look into Hudson House Inn in Cold Spring - scenic, cute town for your family to walk around....the food is good and the rooms are cozy and they would be able to accommodate you... www.hudsonhouseinn.com

          If guests stay local, there are several restaurants in close proximity to do a rehearsal or brunch the next day if you choose to.

          1. hey everyone - thanks for all your suggestions, i really appreciate it. have many leads to work on. half moon looks beautiful but closed for renovations during this time. oh well. thanks again!

            1. Harvest on Hudson in Hastings?

              1. Red Hat in Irvington is very pretty and the food is mostly very good.

                1. We had my daughters wedding, with only 30 people, at the Hilton Westchester (in Rye). There was no view, but the food was really good, and there were several options for different rooms for the ceremony and reception. They were a pleasure to deal with as well.

                  1. you guys are so awesome. thanks again for all your tips. red hat sounds like they wouldn't be able to do a sit-down meal, just buffet - although initially i;d liked that one too. I need to call the lady at harvest - i have that as a strong contender. I'll have to look into the hilton - if it's good food and nice people i might be able to forgo other things! thank you all again.
