John and Sara did an amazing job with our wedding and the accommodations we needed. They were very flexible with letting us walk the venue several times to make sure we had every detail just perfect. We wanted our ceremony outside but the weather did not let up so thankfully we had a plan b inside. The ceremony was just as amazing inside as it would have been outside. They have 2 options inside if the weather is not the greatest which is always a good option to have.. The food was out of this world delicious and cooked to perfection. They have MANY options to choose from for every season. The staff did an impeccable job with the set up, food and cake and cleanup and their hospitality was just awesome and very polite. We couldn't be happier with how our day turned out! Many thanks to John, sara and the staff at the Rip van winkle country club!Sent on 05/20/2018

What a place! Perfect for our wedding June 2016. Sarah and John were amazing to deal with. Food was fantastic. I felt 100% satisfied with being under their wing. Not a single complaint came from my guests. HIGHLY recommend this venue with a gorgeous view of the mountains and wonderful landscaping perfect for pictures.
