The view from the outside wedding area is breath taking. The bride's entrance down the stairs is special if not a little precarious. The staff are very attentive and are constantly providing the variety of hors d'oeuvres arranged by the hosts. The extensive seating area for the indoor meal and dancing is very nice and there is a lovely terrace again with spectacular views of the mountains.
Just had my daughters wedding there,could not be more amazing.The Venue amazing,house beautiful including could accommodate both families.The food awesome but the best of all was Jeremy.He ran the whole wedding so professionally and with so much care,every detail was not missed.I would definitely give this a Five star!!
WHAT A VIEW OF THE CATSKILL MOUNTAINS!!! This location has first rate arrangements for a wedding. The outdoor space looking towards the mountains is spectacular, and the reception structure is roomy and perfect for dancing. The Onteora Mountain House was formerly the mountain retreat of the Hellman family, and the interior retains some of the lovely furnishings from that time. We didn't stay here because they only have 7 bedrooms, but what a great place to come for a relaxing weekend.
Onteora is nestled in the woods with incredible views and spacious, airy rooms - ours equipped with a large jacuzzi tub under a picture window. We were the only guests for the weekend and treated warmly by Bob, one of the owners, who made us a delicious breakfast each morning and struck the right balance of being informative but not an interloper. I know this place is renowned for weddings but as a NYC couple, this was the perfect getaway from the sleet & slush of city streets to enjoy the winter in a cozy, private lodge where we would have been happy to stay in the comfy king-sized bed all day, take in the views and entertain ourselves in the pool room - if not for the allure of the town of Woodstock. We can't wait for our next getaway to Onteora! Thank you, Onteora! ~Hope
We attended a wedding at Onteora this past weekend and were there for both the Rehearsal Dinner on Friday night as well as the wedding on Saturday. We didn't stay at the Inn (however the wedding party did and said it was lovely), but got to see a fair amount of the grounds and buildings. The views are spectacular, the staff is pleasant and helpful and the facilities are excellent. If I had to complain about one thing it would be that the heat lamps used in the pavillion for the wedding dinner were inadequate to heat the room on a very windy, chilly night.
