Onteora Mountain House is a wedding venue located in Boiceville, New York, just an hour away from Albany. This rustic property sits on a mountain overlooking the Catskills, and features a 90-year-old Adirondack-style main house for an authentic upstate experience. With a number of bed and breakfast accommodation options on site, this venue is ideal for a weekend destination wedding.

Facilities and Capacity

Couples can host up to 180 guests on their special day at Onteora Mountain House. The property includes an inn, a banquet pavilion, and a ceremony space overlooking the mountain vistas and Esopus Valley. After exchanging vows among the trees, newlyweds and their guests can explore the garden and main house during the cocktail hour. After, they are welcome to head inside the pavilion for their reception. The rustic banquet hall brings in the outdoors with floor-to-ceiling windows and a polished wooden interior. Its openness and high ceilings create a spacious atmosphere for dining and dancing. Soon-to-be newlyweds are invited to use one or both of the hillside cottages as get-ready rooms to prepare for their big day.

Services Offered

For a blissful wedding experience, Onteora Mountain House offers a range of services to support you throughout your special occasion. The venue’s staff will be there to set up and clean up, as well as arrange tables and chairs according to your preferred layout. If you need assistance before the celebration, they also offer event planning. Various food, accommodation, and additional service packages are available to choose from for a personalized plan.


With full in-house bar service and select catering, Onteora Mountain House provides a number of options for a vibrant reception. After the cocktail hour, your meal can be in the style of a buffet or served by waiters. The team is happy to prepare a cake or other dessert options for a sweet conclusion to your dinner.


Couples and their guests are invited to stay the night in any of the property’s seven rooms. Formerly the summer residence of Richard Hellmann, famous for his mayonnaise company, the house features panoramic views of the Catskills and cozy furnishings. The two rooms in the hillside cottage beside the main accommodation grant guests more privacy during their stay. These spaces are equipped with features such as whirlpool baths, fireplaces, and four-poster beds for a rejuvenating mountain stay.

The best venue, hands down.

I cannot say enough how thankful I am that we decided on this venue. It is, of course, stunning. The scenery stands for itself. However, the top selling factor here is Bob & Jeremy who run the place. They were simply fantastic. Even as a couple planning from abroad, they always got back to us quickly and gave honest guidance based on their vast experience. Upon signing the contract, I got a bridal handbook which contained so much information and guidance that I could refer to throughout the planning process. Additionally, we had to postpone 2 times due to COVID, and they worked with us to help make our wedding day there come true. I didn’t need a day-of coordinator either because Jeremy was on it every step of the way. I cannot emphasize enough how much this was the best place for us. Throughout the whole process and even after I repeatedly said: I am so glad we chose Onteora! (And if you're lucky enough to meet Charlie, well, he can also sell the place in a heartbeat.)

Stunning Venue, Great food, Dream Wedding!

Wow. This venue blew us away. Jeremy was so helpful through the planning process, and Bob (while a bit eccentric) was not lying about the beauty and smoothness with which this place runs. It felt truly magical. The setup of the ceremony and reception was perfect, as they offered lemonade and water to early arrival guests, greeted people with signature cocktails after the ceremony, and had really friendly staff all around. During our tasting, one server we chatted with said that she decided to come back to work at Onteora not because she needed to but because of how much she loved it. The food from Blue Mountain Bistro was also incredible, and Jeremy managed to communicate a lot of complicated food requests to our guests successfully. We got the Beet Salad, Chicken Marsala, Salmon Dijonnaise, and the Risotto cake for vegetarians all of which were truly delicious. And the passed appetizers during cocktail hour were also amazing -- particularly the stuffed mushrooms and tuna tare tare. The dance floor was definitely sufficient for our needs, but I cold see for larger weddings that it might be a bit crowded if you expect most people are dancing. The extras do add up to make this place a bit high cost, but all in all we HIGHLY recommend this venue!!!

There were many many many times we felt beyond thankful to have chosen Onteora

We were originally slated to get married at Onteora in Aug 2020, and eventually had our wedding there in Aug 2021. Through the nearly two (tumultuous) years as we postponed and then planned and had a wedding during the pandemic, there were many many many times we felt beyond thankful to have chosen Onteora.

Bob and Jeremy were amazing. We were so thankful to have practical, honest, down to earth individuals who answered a zillion of our questions, offering their helpful advice (often with a humorous twist) from decades of weddings, and making all kinds of accommodations to make our wedding perfect. (Jeremy even arranged for awesome apples from his farm stand for our welcome bags.)

We and our guests had an amazing time - everything was gorgeous, smooth and delicious. Some of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to, and that some of the appetizers were the best wedding food they had ever had. It’s a beautiful place, and we’re already excited to try to return to the B&B for anniversaries. (We stayed at Onteora for the tasting weekend and a few extra nights before/after the wedding - highly recommended.)

Thank you Bob and Jeremy!
