We loved everything about it
What an amazing wedding! Since our big weekend, I have received constant messages from friends and family about the unique weekend they experienced. The most common message: "Best wedding I have ever been to. It was so unique that I will never forget it."
Not only was the wedding amazing, the months and days leading up to the wedding were amazing. Christy and the rest of the staff at Plattekill did a phenomenal job listening to our wants/needs and did their best to accommodate everything we wanted in our dream wedding. We used vegetables and antiques for our centerpieces, we had a speaker playing a comedy show as guests waited for the ski lift and we asked the in-house caterer to create a farm-to-table BBQ for us. The Plattekill team made all of this possible. We even worked with Christy to get someone to feed our dogs and let them out in the middle of the wedding so we didn't have to worry about them (thanks Matt!).
Although it rained on our big day and we essentially got married on top of the mountain in a HUGE cloud (with absolutely no view), the wedding was still AMAZING. The fires that awaited us and our guests in the lodge as we made our way back down the ski lift made the experience that much more cozy and memorable.
We live in Roxbury NY, just a mountain away from Plattekill and I could not be more enthusiastic about the new relationships we have developed with the team at Plattekill.Sent on 10/04/2019

Beautiful Venue with Quality Owners and Staff!!!
Plattekill Mountain helped us create our dream wedding. From beginning to end, the owners and staff were attentive and super helpful. This is not a corporate venue! The owners (Lazlo & Danielle & their sons) were on site the entire time of our wedding working along side their staff to create a detail oriented and smooth day for our wedding. Christy was amazing and super responsive throughout the whole planning process. She was super flexible and worked to meet all our needs and ideas. I highly recommend Plattekill Mountain for your wedding! The majority of our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever gone to. The chairlift ride, the mountain top ceremony, the fire places in the lodge and on the deck, and beautiful tables, the lighting- All details that made our wedding special. The food was awesome, the smores bar was a hit, and the catering staff was amazing! Even down to the women cleaning the venue before our wedding day was amazing and made sure everything was spotless. We also had the whole week to set up the venue for our special day. THIS IS SO IMPORTANT! I have had so many friends have to set up the night before or morning of. They all just about lost there mind! Having the whole week to decorate and set up the venue was a god send!Sent on 11/07/2019

Best day ever!
We are still pinching ourselves over our dream wedding at Plattekill Mountain! We fell in love with Plattekill because of its obvious beauty and the fact that the mountain is entirely yours for a whole week- unreal! We were able to take our time and set it up exactly how we wanted. Staff were super helpful and even hung up extra lights that we supplied. The rustic beauty speaks for itself so all we had to do was add our personal touches. Christy is nothing short of an angel! She coordinated our special day perfectly and was awesome at making a typically stressful planning experience significantly easier. We have two mobility challenged people in our families and they were easily transported all over the mountain and lodge. A Jeep drove them to the summit and back and a golf cart was able to get them from floor to floor easily. Every single guest told us that it was the most beautiful and memorable wedding they have ever been to which makes our hearts glow. We cannot thank Christy, Bob, Mark, and everyone else at Plattekill Mountain for our best day ever!Sent on 10/02/2019
Plattekill Mountain's reply:Thank you for your kind words and glowing review! The Plattekill Team was thrilled to help create the perfect day with you, Mike, and all of your family and friends!

This is a great venue. I played here a while back but it still remains as my favorite venue in the Catskills!
Plattekill is a beautiful slice of upstate NY. It's scenic surroundings give way to it's cozy atmosphere. It's a perfect place for couples who want a great view and great service. We have photographed there many times and every time the views capture my photographer heart!
What a view from the top of the mountain!! If you want to have a casual mountain wedding, this is the perfect place. They work hard to make each event special.
