The on-site catering has been provided by Chef Randall Brown for over 24 years.

The castle was built in 1860 by Augustus Beardslee by Irish and Swiss masons. During its long history, the castle survived two major fires in the 20th century. After the second fire destroyed much of the kitchen, the space was left vacant for three years. In 1994, the current owners purchased and renovated it to its former glory.

Beardslee Castle Bridal Shower
I had my bridal shower at the Beardslee Castle this weekend and it exceeded all expectations! Lynn was accommodating, flexible, and very easy to work with. Planning during covid is difficult, but Lynn made sure that the event was fun, and safe for guests. A few days before the event I brought all of the decorations and did a mock set up to make sure the day would be perfect. The food was delicious and our menu was customizable! Lynn and her team helped with the set up and take down. I highly recommend the Castle for any event!!!Sent on 05/03/2021

If you are looking for a beautiful romantic place in Upstate New York for your wedding, Beardslee Castle is one place you should be sure to check out. We absolutely love to work here! The grounds are amazing. The trees and expansive lawn are perfect for gorgeous nature type images and we have been able to create amazing images using that fabulous castle in the background. The upstairs banquet hall is perfect for any wedding theme, with the fireplaces and large castle windows that look out onto the grounds and for a small intimate wedding the private dining areas are perfect. Randy is an amazing chef, the food is always top notch and Lynn and Jennifer have the experience and expertise that you can count on to make sure your wedding day runs smoothly.
