Owls Hoot Barn is a rustic wedding venue located in West Coxsackie, New York. This barn was built in the early 1800s and provides a relaxed environment for a variety of special occasions. The property is nestled in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. Hudson, Catskill, and Athens are all easily accessible by car, and New Tork City is approximately two hours away. For the discerning couple, Owls Hoot Barn presents the perfect medium of country charm within a reasonable distance of major metropolitan areas.
Facilities and Capacity
Owls Hoot Barn is able to hold a capacity of 180 individuals on the main level or over 200 guests via the attached pavilion on the ground level. The main level boasts a hay loft that maintains its original timbers and the downstairs lends itself well to a bar and photo booth section. These rooms are completely customizable and can be personalized with the couple's preferential designs. The barn provides access to seven bathrooms, including a wheelchair accessible option, and has commercial fans that keep the room at a comfortable temperature all year round. Air conditioning is also available during the summer months. Twinkle and bistro lights are draped from the ceiling, creating a soft glow throughout the space. Ceremonies may also be held on the grounds outside, surrounded by ancient trees and the bounty of nature. Should inclement weather hit, couples are able to make use of the on-site pavilion.
This barn's team has over two decades of experience in the wedding industry and has a collection of period pieces that can serve to enhance any event. These items are available to clients who book their wedding celebration at Owls Hoot Barn for no added cost. This venue offers a myriad of options for overnight accommodation through rental houses and cabins. Full and partial planning solutions are available for clients, should they choose to use them, and the team at the Owls Hoot Barn looks forward to working with any couple on their special day.

Owls Hoot Barn or OHB is a picture perfect barn wedding venue. The property is absolutely stunning and Kerri the venue owner is a joy to work with. While a bit more DIY than other traditional venues, it's all worth it. We could not have picked a better venue to have our special day at. Thank you Kerri!Sent on 06/10/2019

Experience of a Lifetime
(May 18th Wedding): There are truly not enough words to describe how incredible our wedding experience was at Owls Hoot Barn. This venue is honestly the most special, intimate, and unique place we could've ever imagined. Firstly, what drew us in and really sets this venue apart right off the bat from other barn venues is the fact that you get the opportunity to stay right on the property from Wednesday-Sunday of your wedding weekend. This was huge for us, as it really turned into a full weekend experience that we got to really enjoy (versus feeling like 1 day that was over in the blink of an eye). This gave us time in the days leading up to really decide on how we wanted to utilize and decorate the spaces, etc. which made the day-of so much smoother and more relaxed. The possibilites are endless here, and you have access to TONS of decor and furniture items. There are multiple other gorgeous homes in addition to the bridal cabin ("Owls Nest"), that I recommend having family/bridal parties stay in. It was a lot of fun having our family all right there with us, and not worrying about transportation, not to mention the accomodations are so dreamy and comfortable. You really have so many options on the property to really make your wedding unique and your own. We lucked out with amazing weather, but should it rain, the pavilion/backup rain plan is still gorgeous, and no need to worry about renting any tents or anything! I don't even know where to start with the venue owner, Kerri. SHE IS A GEM. Honestly, she is a true force. She is SO friendly, organized, and helpful if all of your planning needs. She also goes above and beyond not only with recommendations for vendors, but in following up and working closely with them to get things done. Kerri is very detail-oriented, and will make sure no stone is left unturned. I knew I'd have a great wedding day, but I really had no clue just how absolutely perfect and beyond my expectations everything would turn out. Our guests absolutely RAVED about how much they loved the property and the barn, and are even still talking about it weeks later. What an experience of a lifetime. Endless amounts of gratitude from the Joyces to Kerri and the entire Owls Hoot team! All of you made this the best wedding we could've ever dreamt of. THANK YOU!Sent on 06/12/2019

What a Wonderful Experience
We could not have been happier with our experience at Owls Hoot Barn. From the moment we met with Kerri, we knew that she would take great care of us, and she was one of the main reasons we decided to choose the OHB over another barn venue in the area.Sent on 11/02/2018
Boy did we make the right decision. Everything was absolutely beautiful, the venue had all the decorations we could ever have wanted for my perfect Pinterest wedding, and the location is to die for. Everyone kept saying how unique and special our venue was, and that they wanted the "Adam and Cara special" for their own wedding.
It wasn't just the beauty of the venue and perfection of the venue, but the experience as a whole. As part of our contract, we were able to come up on the Wednesday before our wedding, and relax before we had to finalize everything on Thursday and Friday. It felt like a mini getaway, and helped with overall stress of planning. Kerri is a master at what she does, and our parents raved at how seamless she made things. We could not have done it without her, and everything went off without a hitch.
I am so sad it is over, but am so glad we chose the Owl's Hoot Barn as our venue.
