About A Private Estate
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.
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.
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.
