The on-site catering has been provided by Chef Randall Brown for over 24 years. The menu changes yearly and is completely customizable, with organic produce and grains that are sourced from local farms, as well as herbs and produce that are grown on-site. The menu options can accomodate many dietary needs, and draw influences from American, Mediterranean, Island, and Asian cuisines. Couples can choose from a plated, family, or buffet-style service.
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 is located just off the New York State thruway. It has a perfect central location, as it is less than hour’s drive from Albany, and just over an hour from Syracuse.

We met with Lynn for a consultation on our Fall 2020 wedding, and she was fantastic! Not only was she understanding when we had to reschedule our original meeting last minute, but when we did meet with her she was sweet and friendly and took away so much of my stress and concerns. She fully covered the castle and grounds and what we could expect day of. And when we sat to talk about the date and price and logistics, she answered all of our questions fully and gave us time to talk alone without feeling pressured. This was our first choice of venue, but we were so thrilled with her service, the venue, and the glowing recommendation of a groom's mother on site for a wedding later that day, that we decided on the spot to book our wedding! We cannot wait to continue working with Lynn and the staff at Beardslee over the next year!Sent on 07/21/2019

Fairy tale Wedding
My husband and I got engaged at the castle and went on to get married there as well. Lynn was so helpful for every part of it. My husband confided in her to help him propose and she also was there to answer every question and put every worry at ease for our big day. The castle is a beautiful venue with lots of added character like the dungeon, which made us fall in love with it even more. My husband and I will be back to relive our love and commitment together for years to come. Beardslee Castle was the perfect place to start our happily ever after.Sent on 09/09/2019
