The perfect, easy wedding.
Everyone at Plattekill was so easygoing and easy to work with. Christy was in occasional contact in the months leading up to our wedding--available to answer questions, and checking in infrequently. We were onsite most of the week of our wedding, doing most of the decor setup ourselves, and everyone was very welcoming and helpful. They let us do (and facilitated) all the things that were important to us, and made good decisions about the things that didn't matter to us or we didn't get to. (Outdoor table layout, for example.) Our dog was so comfortable there that she napped through most of our reception. Our friends had a wonderful time, and we had fun. And the setting on top of the mountain is beautiful and so photogenic.Sent on 09/11/2019

Amazing Mountaintop Wedding!
We are so happy to have chosen Plattekill as our wedding venue! We had complete flexibility when it came to decor, menu, and timing of everything so could make our day everything we hoped it would be. Even though it was a quite cold and wet day, we were set on the mountain-top ceremony and Christy and her Plattekill team were absolute troopers getting everything set up and guests up the mountain! They even surprised us with hot apple cider, which everyone absolutely loved! Overall the experience was completely unique and something our guests will not soon forget. Thank you to the Plattekill team for helping to make our wedding day spectacular!Sent on 03/20/2019

I will never forget the day my husband and I visited Plattekill Mountain for the first time. It was late January and we were anticipating a late summer wedding. Before we entered the lodge, my husband and I did our best to “melt the snow away” so we could envision what our wedding might look like in September. It wasn’t until we met Christy (our wedding coordinator) that we understood the essence of Plattekill and what it prides itself on. Yes, the venue itself is 100% perfection. No one can argue that. Seriously, it will take your breath away. Trust me. However, what really convinced us that Plattekill was where we should have our wedding, was the warmth that emitted from the entire staff. You walked into the lodge and it felt like you were at a family reunion. Christy went out of her way to not only answer any questions we had, but was 100% committed to making our wedding the best day of our lives. She surpassed all of our expectations! In case you’re wondering, yes...wedding planning is a much more rewarding experience when you can plan it with your “bestie”. It was a no brainer for my husband and I to choose Plattekill for our wedding venue. That feeling when you realized your partner was “the one” is exactly what we felt after leaving our first Plattekill tour. In fact, Plattekill was the only venue we visited because we knew it was “the one”.
Our wedding went on without a hitch. I honestly could write a novel with all of the positive experiences we had from Plattekill. We had a few people (myself included) who had food allergies and Marilyn and the kitchen crew went out of their way to ensure that nothing was mixed or cross-contaminated; which gave me peace of mind. Marilyn even triple checked the allergy list by introducing herself to those guests and specifically handled their food so they could feel at ease. One of our guests came up to me and told me how much more she enjoyed our wedding because she knew exactly what was safe to eat without having to worry. Thank you Plattekill for being so thoughtful! If you’re not sure if you should bring in your own catering or use Plattekill’s, let me be the first to tell you that Plattekill’s food was hands down the best we have ever had!!! Big thanks to our chefs, Dale and Christy (different Christy hahaa)! Also would love to thank our bartenders, Jill and Dennis, for taking such good care of everyone at the wedding! They even went through all of their glassware and asked my husband and I which style we’d prefer for each drink offered. Now that’s what I call thorough!
The chairlift experience was magical. Although we got married at Plattekill, I had never been skiing or snowboarding. We chose a mountain venue because we’re avid hikers/outdoorsy. That was such an incredible experience and I’m so glad our friends and family got to witness that as well. For those who were afraid of heights or weren’t wanting to use the chair lift, Plattekill provided a way to the top for those people. They really do think of everything! Our chairlift operators were a hoot and definitely gave off a great energy and vibe for the wedding! Thanks to Danielle, Adam, Forrest, Mark and Kevin for providing great service during the chairlift prep but also transforming the lodge to be picture perfect for our reception!
The best part about “Platty” (besides their impeccable customer service) is the ability to have a “do-it-yourself” wedding. Whether it be BYO alcohol package, your own catering service, decor, etc., you have the freedom to transform their lodge to fit the vision of your wedding. My husband and I couldn’t recommend Plattekill enough. We relive that day as much as we can and encourage others who are considering Plattekill for their wedding venue, to put their trust in the staff. They are so generous with their time, energy and creativity. Thank you Bob (owner) for creating such a positive environment for all. Looking forward to visiting again soon!

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!
