About A Private Estate

Nineteenth Century Elegance for the 21st Century Couple

A Private Estate is a 19th-century mansion welcoming couples in the Albany, New York area. With a manicured property that’s a half-mile wide, this historic landmark venue overlooks the Hudson River and Catskill Mountain peaks. A modern barn sits upon the hill behind the mansion. This secluded space is just a five-minute drive from Clermont State Park, and across the river from Bristol Beach.

Facilities and Capacity
With a maximum capacity of 300 guests, couples can host their ceremonies and receptions on the intimate estate grounds. The well-groomed lawn offers ceremony space with a backdrop view of the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains. The white mansion sits on the other side, with tall windows and grand porticos supported by arched columns. The modern barn space features two levels and exposed wood rafters for a romantic country feel.

Services Offered
The venue offers accommodations, chairs, parking and event rentals for couples’ weddings. A fire pit and Adirondack chairs add to the coziness of A Private Estate, while indoor bathrooms and electricity ensure guests have access to modern amenities on this historic property.

Accommodations
Two structures on the property offer accommodations to couples and their guests. The Carriage House contains four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths. Three bedrooms connect to suite bathrooms. Use the portable twin bed, a daybed and a convertible sofa to sleep additional guests. The Carriage House also includes a wood-burning fireplace, with aged firewood provide in autumn months. The second option for lodging is the new Creekside Cabin. Built in 2017, the cabin will offer lodging for up to six guests.

We were so fortunate to find our way to A Private Estate.
We hosted a large weekend long affair..
The owner and property manager could not have been more helpful and gracious.
The setting is gorgeous and there are so many ways to use the space.
We have only happy memories from our time there !

The whole experience with this venue was a delight. They helped us out following another venue canceling at short notice and this worked out hugely in our favor. Ripley was a joy to work with and nothing was too much trouble for Jack and his team. The location was just perfect and has added hundreds of cherished memories to our life. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. Highly recommended.

Private Estate is one of my favorite locations to photograph a wedding. It offers a wonderful view of the Hudson river. I love the architecture of the barn and the intimate atmosphere it creates. There are so many locations to make timeless photos and portraits of the bride and the groom. I highly recommend it.

Elegance at it's best! From the beautiful front lawn over looking the Hudson River and Catskill Mountains, to the unique barn setting with an excellent outdoor patio setting, A Private Estate is no question, a venue like no other!!! We LOVE performing at this venue and working along side their friendly staff! A+++

A Private Estate is by far one of my favorite venues in the Hudson Valley. The property and venue accommodations are stunning and offer plenty of flexibility to really make your event your own. Ripley and Jack are wonderful work with and go the extra mile in any way they can. If you're looking for a truly unique hidden gem in the Hudson Valley, you must check out A Private Estate.

A Private Estate is a beautiful venue right on the Hudson. It is one of our favorite places to work in the Hudson Valley. Breath Taking views, a fabulous staff, and an amazing barn!
