About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner
Up to 180 guests

The Sablewood is a fully renovated circa 1870 barn situated on over 120 acres in the northern Catskill Mountains. - Just 35 minutes to Albany and under 3 hours to NYC or Boston.

The venue features a stunning climate controlled post-and-beam barn, outdoor (or indoor) ceremony & cocktail locations, gorgeous custom lighting inside and out, high end wooden farm tables and chairs and a staff to do all the setup & cleanup and day of assistance. Weddings are a relaxed full day experience starting in the bright & airy preparation suites with full mountain views. The barn & grounds delight visitors with flowers and natural landscaping flowing around the barn & grounds.

Facilities and Capacity
All spaces can comfortably accommodate events of all sizes from 25 to 180 guests.

The Sablewood is named for its sable (black) exterior, which gives way to another world when stepping into the bright sun drenched interior. Inside couples can share their first dance under the 12-foot wide, 1920s chandelier with all custom lighting throughout.

The venue includes indoor and outdoor options for ceremony and covered cocktail hour in case of inclement weather with our NEW white barn, "The Charlington"! The Charlington stands next to the Sablewood and is also fully climate controlled with stunning 26' high ceilings, custom scissor trusses and handmade french country chandeliers. The Charlington is another "Plan A" in case of inclement weather for an indoor ceremony and covered cocktail hour on the bluestone veranda facing the mountains.

    What Dreams Are Maid Of

    From the moment we first stepped on the property in the Winter of 2019, my wife and I knew this was the place we were going to be married.

    Fast forward to October 2021. We couldn’t have had a more spectacular day. We had our ceremony outside in the circle behind the barn and it was beautiful. Inside was even more stunning. There isn’t enough words to describe how great this place really is and how beautiful not only the barn, but the property is.

    Lisa and her staff were wonderful on the day of our wedding and took care of everything! From setting up decorations to dealing with the vendors, to helping guiding our guests where they needed to go. Whatever we needed, they helped with. They were 1st class!

    If your looking for a intimate place to have a wedding with beautiful views for your photos, this is the place for you!
