About Onteora Mountain House

Onteora Mountain House is a banquet facility hosting weddings in the Albany, New York area. This rustic venue sits up on a mountain overlooking the Catskills. The included bed and breakfast make this venue ideal for a weekend destination wedding. The venue sits 10 minutes from the Ashokan Reservoir, a 30 minute drive from I-87.

After exchanging vows among the trees on the edge of the mountain, couples and guests explore the garden and main house during the cocktail hour, and then head inside the banquet pavilion for their reception. The woodsy banquet hall brings in the outdoors with floor-to-ceiling windows and a polished wooden interior. The openness of the space and high ceilings give the venue an airy feel.

    Our August wedding was more magical than we could have imagined. Everything was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Working with Jeremy made the process a breeze. Onteora has a streamlined process in place to organize a wedding efficiently, but also leaves room for the special touches that allow your wedding’s personal theme to shine through. We loved having the venue to ourselves from Friday through Sunday, and opted to host our rehearsal dinner (35 people) and Sunday brunch (100 people) there, all of which were delightful. We loved that our family dogs celebrated with us, since Onteora is pet-friendly. Onteora is so peaceful and secluded that your entire wedding will feel like a dream - very different than your typical commercialized wedding venue. We loved having the ceremony and cocktail hour outside, and the surrounding landscape provided an incredible backdrop for photos. If we had to go back and do it all over again, we would still choose Onteora in a heartbeat.

    If you're lucky enough to get a date on Onteora's schedule, take it! This venue and their staff have it all. You can already see from the pictures how idyllic the scenery is. And I dare say it's even more striking in person. Your guests will not stop telling you how beautiful the grounds and pavilion are. But this venue is more than its good looks. It is a well-oiled machine. Peace of mind is everything when it comes to wedding planning, so you want vendors you can trust. You can depend on Bob and Jeremy 100% to make things run smoothly. I actually hired an independent wedding planner, and after all was said and done, I would have been better off just working directly with the Onteora staff myself - they're that good! Finally, it rained nonstop the day of our wedding, but that didn't spoil things at all because Onteora was fully equipped to handle the weather. When I first toured this venue, having a rain back-up was a high priority for me. The rain plan-B is just as beautiful as the outdoor plan-A. As it happened, that turned out to be critical. And the rain actually creates a very beautiful effect on the surrounding mountains. If you choose Onteora, you'll have an incredible wedding and you and your guests will be delighted.
