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.

Services Offered

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.

    Perfect in Every Way

    My husband and I got married at Owls Hoot Barn last October- and might I say I STILL have people telling me it was the best wedding they had ever been to, largely due to Kerri-owner and operator of venue! I have already written a review about the dreamy and magical venue, along with Kerri's kindness, and amazing helpfulness during the whole weekend... todays review is a follow up on the invaluable Kerri.

    She reached out to me, almost a year after we got married there.. to tell me a few wedding cards were left at the venue. One of the cards even had lots of cash in it... she texted me pictures of what was left behind and then kindly mailed everything to my current address. This act of honesty and kindness is worth much more than a 5+ star review.. but I just had to share this story.

    So not only is the venue magical and perfect in every way.. much more importantly your host, Kerri Coorigan is worth so much more in character, quality, and sweetness! She will make your special day perfect!

    Beautiful venue!

    This venue is GORGEOUS. I cannot say enough great things about it. We had a 120 person wedding and there was the perfect amount of space for our guests. There are a lot of different places around the property to have your ceremony at (secret garden, over a bridge, under the pergola, by the bonfire)... yes, there's a bonfire! We had our ceremony over the bridge, cocktail hour under the pergola, and the reception inside the barn. We closed the night out with a bonfire and smores. It's also a huge plus that there is housing on-site for all of the family and wedding party to rent and stay in. I also cannot say enough good things about Kerri who owns/runs the property. You MUST hire her as your day-of wedding planner when you book this venue. She makes everything so seamless and is a huge help for months leading up to the event. If you're looking for an Upstate NY barn wedding, look no further.

    Picture Perfect Wedding Experience with Owls Hoot Barn

    From the moment we set foot on Owls Hoot Barn, we were blown away by the attention to detail and beauty of the space. Kerri, the owner, has thought of absolutely everything and every inch of the venue is carefully and thoughtfully decorated. The barn is stunningly gorgeous and though it feels and looks rustic, it’s perfectly outfitted for a wedding dinner and party. The various outdoor ceremony spaces are gorgeous and are surrounded by wildflowers and trees. The covered cocktail hour area is the perfect space for passed apps and drinks outside (and it’s an excellent back up area for the ceremony should it rain) and the bonfire that OHB takes care of was an amazing end to our wedding. Best of all, there is a lovely cabin we had access to starting on the Wednesday before our wedding and our whole family and bridal party was able to stay in the gorgeous farmhouse and the two Airbnb’s that are part of the property starting on the Thursday before. Because of this, we were able to kick off of our wedding days in advance with our loved ones.

    Kerri helps to make planning seamless. She has a dedicated list of vendors she recommends, but is welcoming to anyone new you bring on. She’s ALWAYS available if you have questions and is endlessly helpful and friendly. She has a storage area filled with decor (mason jars, burlap runners, milk crates, lights, lanterns, signage, etc) that you are welcome to use. It saved us hundreds of dollars and everything we borrowed looked fabulous. She also has all of the chairs, tables, plates, cutlery, glasses, napkins, etc. you’ll need so you don’t have to outsource anything except a caterer, photographer, and DJ. If you are the type of bride (like me) who did not want to pick out napkins but still enjoys a little DIY set up, this is a great space for you.

    This is really a special place and I feel so lucky that I got married at OHB. I am eternally grateful to Kerri for helping to make our day so magical. I can honestly say I wouldn’t change a thing.
