We were married in July 2017 at the Fontainebleau Inn in Alpine, New York. Honestly, words cannot fully express how much we loved our wedding at the Fontainebleau, however since this a review, we’ll do our best! :)

First and most importantly, John and Terri were incredibly helpful, friendly and supportive. They helped us with planning and coordination prior to the wedding and then made sure the day of our wedding was absolutely spectacular. On top of that, the Fontainebleau is stunning! The lake is the perfect site for an outdoor wedding and the hall with its beautiful wood paneling and fireplace was perfect for our reception. In addition, our wedding party and family stayed at the Fontainebleau, which allowed us extra time to plan, hang out and just relax. We also have to mention the delicious homemade breakfasts Terri made every morning that were simply amazing! I would highly recommend the Fontainebleau to anyone planning a wedding!

The Fontainebleau Inn provided my husband and I with a wedding that we couldn't have dreamed of. Our wedding, as every couple always wishes, was truly the best night of our lives. From the day we stepped foot on the property and met John and Terri, we knew that everything about the venue was a perfect fit. John and Terri were patient, organized, supportive, professional, and informative throughout the entire planning process. They gave us fantastic suggestions for various venders which saved us a great deal of researching (since we are located about 2 hours away). They coordinated with our caterer, photographer, band, baker, and bus service so that everyone was informed on the schedule of the day. Throughout our wedding evening, they were there to make sure that everything was going as smoothly as it possibly could. What's unique about the Inn, is that there are rooms to stay right at the location. The rooms are spacious, with a beautiful view (lake and courtyard) and included everything (possibly more) than what you would get at a hotel (hairspray, combs, body wash, hair shampoo & conditioner, etc.). Terri and John know exactly how to welcome an engaged couple and their families during this exciting time. Upon asking our family members what they enjoyed most about their stay, they overwhelmingly agreed on the home cooked family breakfast in the large dining room. Saturday and Sunday morning, our families were provided the opportunity to enjoy a delicious, filling breakfast while having time to enjoy each other's company. A wedding weekend can be so busy and at times chaotic, so to have that time to all be gathered at the table, was irreplaceable. If you're looking for a wedding venue that treats your family, the engaged couple, and your guests like family, yet maintains the utmost level of professionalism, this is the venue for you and your significant other.
