We could not have asked for more on our wedding day at Dutchess Manor. Dean and Harry were very accommodating to help us create exactly the wedding that we wanted. They were there to help us every step of the way. We hope to be guests at a wedding there in the future so we can enjoy it from the other side.
My wedding here was beautiful. They did a wonderful job! The food was great and the venue and ceremony setting is beautiful. I definitely recommend this venue.
Dean was attentive to our needs each step of the way...never pushy, always accommodating us and meeting with us when we needed to meet with him. The food was delicious and his staff were super attentive the day of our wedding. I would certainly recommend him as a wonderful person to work with and the view is AMAZING!
The Dutchess Manor is the full package -- gorgeous setting (even in the rain!), delicious food (thank you Chef Harry!), well trained staff, and a big dance floor. Family owned, Dean, Georgea and Harry have perfected the art of a well executed, beautifully timed wedding reception. The care and attention to detail is a clear sign these are experts who deliver beyond what is on the contract. We also used two of their recommended suppliers - the DJ - MC Fish Entertainment - and the florist - The Secret Garden. Together, they made happy memories for our daughter and new son-in-law that will last a lifetime!
Everything was taken care of at the venue and the servers were so helpful all night long. The food was all delicious and the efficient way that the serving and removing of things was done was impressive.
This place is really dirty there was bees everywhere I saw dean yell at one of his workers for making a simple mistake that didn't matter much to the party all around wouldn't advise people to have there beautiful thoughtful wedding here
I am so happy we chose to have our reception at Dutchess Manor. Our wedding went off very smoothly and we had a blast.
First of all, Dean is great to work with. We were impressed with his professionalism and were very comfortable relying on his experience and expertise. He walked us through every step and decision we needed to make and made it very easy for us. We paid a little bit extra to make sure we had the entire place to ourselves for our wedding, which made it feel more special for us and gave us more room for our cocktail hour.
The views are amazing. The venue is an old manor house and the site is just beautiful. Everything looked and felt clean and was very open. We had a great view of the Hudson river and got some awesome sunset shots.
The food was probably what sold us on Dutchess Manor. They offer tastings and the food was amazing. They even added a couple extra hor d'oeuvres during our wedding which was great. They were also great about working with our dietary restrictions. They had gluten free and vegetarian options readily available and if someone wasn't interested in a course, they would give them a different option. They were very accommodating and flexible. I wasn't able to eat much of my food (too excited/exhausted to eat) so my amazing waitress Maria had it packaged up for me so I could take it home and eat it the next day. She also was great about getting me tea so I could keep up my energy.
The staff was amazing and the wedding went very smoothly. I didn't have to worry about anything the day of and our guests keep complimenting the flow of the reception. No one felt rushed or herded around like at some reception halls. Everyone really enjoyed the food and the open bar. When my 70 year old relatives and my mid-20s friends were both saying this was the best wedding they had ever been to, I knew I made the right decision to go with Dutchess Manor.
Dean, Georgea, and the rest of the staff are fantastic. More than accommodating to every need. We had just our reception there but if it was warmer out we would have had the ceremony there as well.The views of the Hudson river are STUNNING, night or day. They have a great package which includes a shuttle service to local hotels which was great for our guests. Cake was included, (Upgrades are extra) Open top shelf bar for cocktail hour through the end of the reception. Every step of the process they gave their opinions and helped give us ideas! Pretty much were mini-wedding planners and are very knowledgeable in the wedding business. Very highly recommended, no brainer where to book your wedding! Dutchess Manor in Beacon NY!!
We had a great wedding at the Dutchess Manor, a lovely venue owned by the awesome Dean and Harry! The venue is gorgeous--lovely dark wood antiques and great interior design, not to mention a veranda and windows that both afford great views of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains! Dean is a classically trained chef and created a delicious seasonal fall menu with a French flavor uniquely for our wedding. Everyone raved about the food! The staff were very, very nice, helpful, professional, and just all around amazing! Especially Mariela! She helped make every transition smooth and timely with a smile for everyone along the way. I would highly recommend the Dutchess Manor, especially if you're looking for a venue with an old fashioned or vintage feel.
If you are looking for the perfect venue to get married at, look no further than Dutchess Manor. Dean and Georgea and the entire staff are extremely friendly and flexible; they took care of all of the logistics and made a bride with extreme OCD at ease. We thank them for their hospitality and patience in planning this wedding and for extraordinary customer service. We had such a perfect day on August 30 and owe it all to the fine staff at Dutchess Manor.
I am so thrilled I choose Dutchess Manor for my wedding! Our guests cannot stop talking about what a beautiful location we chose. Dean met with us a few times to help ensure that my vision for the perfect day would come to life, and boy did he deliver. As far as location, it cannot be beat, with a backdrop overlooking the Hudson River. But beyond just that, Dean made sure that everything went flawlessly, and that the entire experience was beyond perfect. I would absolutely recommend the Dutchess Manor for anyone looking to get married in this area.
Thank you Dean and the rest of your family and staff for our wonderful day! We hadnot been there for any events before booking them for our wedding ceremony and reception, so I had a little fear of the unknown. From even before we signed the contract we knew we were in great hands! Between Dean making sure every answer for planning was answered and worked out to our satisfaction always and all of the glowing comments when we told people we booked there, we were confident that we chose the right venue. We found that they were priceless in having the most beautiful day we could have asked for. We were married outside overlooking the Hudson river and then moved inside to the beautifully appointed Manor for cocktail hour and reception. You can't recreate that atmosphere anywhere else! We are so happy that we trusted them for our special day!
Dean, Harry, and Georgea make quite the team. My husband and I had our wedding there just last night and I can't wait any longer to rave about our services. Since the beginning of our wedding planning, Dean was extremely timely and flexible. The food was absolutely DELICIOUS! Our guests can't stop raving about the food. Everyone was served their meals at the same time, which was extremely important to us. The view overlooking the Hudson River had everyone talking. We had a perfect sunset and a perfect day. We are so lucky to have celebrated our wedding at the same place we went to prom together! In addition to that, we had such a wonderful experience with not only the planning, but the wedding day itself. Thank you for your extreme dedication to your customers.
I had a bridal shower at the Dutchess Manor 8/2/2014 and it was lovely!!! Dean and Georgia were great to work with. The food was very good and the Manor has really beautiful views of the Hudson River. The Manor is also very nicely decorated. Their pricing is very competitive especially for a small family run business. It's nice to support smaller family run businesses. They did an excellent job.
This is NOT a wedding factory...which makes Dutchess Manor THE place to have your wedding! It is very evident that Dean and his staff at Dutchess Manor take pride in what they do, and strive to give you the best wedding experience throughout the whole planning process and event itself. My husband and I had been to a handful of venues which we considered, but when we pulled into the parking lot at DM and took a step inside, we looked at each other and knew this was the place we wanted to have our wedding. Dean made the planning process easy and fun, we enjoyed our meetings with him. Any time I had a question about anything, he got right back to me with an answer. The food is amazing and the staff is super attentive to whatever we needed. We also booked our rehearsal dinner there, which was also just as amazing. The grounds are breathtaking, we had our ceremony there as well. There is not enough thanks to Dean and his staff for truly giving me the best wedding day a girl could ask for!
I have been to Dutchess Manor many times over the past ten years and was always impressed with their service and catering. It's a beautiful venue, but it was really the gorgeous lawn and views of the Hudson that made me imagine my wedding there.
Dean, Georgia and their team exceeded our expectations. Our friends and family raved about the service, the food and the alcohol. I can't tell you how many people told us our wedding was the best they've ever attended, and that was all because of Dutchess Manor!
It's a beautiful location, and Dean is so helpful and flexible. They accommodated our every request and gave us the perfect wedding! We also had our ceremony on site overlooking the river. Beautiful!
