Getting married at the Altamont Manor was superb!
Getting married at the Altamont Manor was superb! The gardens and lawn were expertly maintained. The sunken garden was a fantastic background for our ceremony. Harvey and his years of expertise made our ceremony flawless.Sent on 11/11/2020
The wrap around porch and picturesque views of Albany made cocktail hour extra special. The flowers on the porch even matched our wedding colors! The vintage bar allowed our guests to step back in time. The dining room made all of our guests feel cozy but safe.
Harvey was flexible and understanding during this challenge time. We appreciate all of the time he spent on the phone with us planning our wedding. Harvey and his family went above and beyond to make sure our day was perfect. You can't find a better place than the Altamont Manor for your wedding!

The Perfect Venue
The Altamont Manor is amazing!! We I looked at about 10 different venues all over NY. We were looking for an affordable, but gorgeous, garden wedding venue. From the moment we arrived for our tour, the Altamont Manor was perfect! It's our dream wedding venue. Making the decision to book our wedding at the Altamont was so easy. My fiance and I went into the appointment feeling a little bummed because we had negative experiences at other venues. Everywhere we went, venues made us feel like a business transaction. However, everything changed once we found the Altamont Manor! What meant the most to us was the fact that this was a cherished family business. We could immediately tell that working with Harvey would be different. This was a family place, and he puts his heart and soul into this extraordinary property. What blew us away is that (after visiting other venues that rushed us), Harvey sat with us for almost 2 hours showing us the property, talking about different vendors and experiences he's had, showing us pictures, talking about options, answering questions, etc. We didn't want to leave!! We were over the moon excited as this was the perfect venue we were looking for. Harvey made the experience in every way! That is exactly the type of venue/person we were looking to work with- you can tell he really cares. He's SO experienced too having done numerous weddings on his property for over 30 years. His many years of experience gives us peace of mind because Harvey is so trustworthy, and we know he will take care of any issues that come up. COVID-19 has been challenging, and we've decided to postpone our wedding until 2021, but Harvey is still letting us have a small ceremony and dinner on his property this summer 2020 on our original wedding date for a very small fee! We feel so blessed and lucky that we get to enjoy this gorgeous venue, not once, but twice! He has been so flexible and understanding and patient. If you’re looking for an intimate, garden wedding at a venue that will make you feel valued and important, this is the place. Harvey’s customer service is exceptional, and his property is so classy, romantic, and perfect in every way.Sent on 06/02/2020
Altamont Manor's reply:Hi Susannah. Thanks so much for taking the time to write such an in-depth review. It's very heartening to hear that our couples appreciate their experience at The Manor, as we work hard to make sure they are getting exactly what they want. I was also gratified that you wrote about a 2 hour appointment. We really do try and take the time to make sure it really will be the wedding of your dreams. Your wedding is such a milestone in the journey through life and we want to make sure we did everything we could to help you realize that dream. We have actually had several couples whose parents got married here. Thanks again. Harvey

Fabulous gardens and view to make your wedding close to nature yet elegant.
The Altamont Manor is a spectular place to celebrate a Wedding Day! The Victorian Manor is beautiful! The grounds are picture perfect! Great setting for your Wedding Ceremony. Harvey is one of nicest guys in the business! 5 STARS!
As a disc jockey, the Altamont Manor is one of my favorite places to work. Harvey keeps his grounds and garden beautifully groomed. Inside, the space makes me feel like it's a party in someone's home. When I turn up the music after dinner, there's enough room for everyone to get out there and have fun. I'm not the prop and group dance type of DJ, so my style fits right in.
