    Perfect Wedding Venue

    We loved using Shakespeare on the Hudson for our wedding weekend from Thursday - Sunday this July. Jason, the property manager, was so accommodating to our multiple visits to the venue before confirming our date, and was frequently in touch with us about how he could make sure the house was best prepped for our wedding weekend. The home comfortably slept 17 of our guests and everyone loved walking the grounds in the morning and swimming in the pool and hot tub. You can't go wrong with the expansive view of the Hudson River and stately features of the home's architecture and touches. We wish we could get married every month just to go back and spend more time in the house!

    Our wedding was the best weekend of my life. The CURRENT staff (Bob, Dave, and company) were wonderful. We had worked with a previous property manager and she was a bit of a nightmare. Bob went above and beyond to rectify these issues. The staff made every effort to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. Bob and Dave made themselves available to our guests 24 hours a day and popped in every now and then to check on us. Like ninjas, they would check the pool temperature, take out garbage, spot clean the grounds without us ever knowing. With these folks in place, this venue will succeed in hosting many more beautiful weddings.

    A few important notes; the water is well water. This means it is treated in a specific way and the water has a sulphuric smell. This is not abnormal for this type of system, but can be a bit of a shock. YOU will not come out smell of sulphur, but the bathroom will. Get yourself some incense or scented candles. I promise you will want them. The house is gorgeous but RUSTIC. If you are looking for a ultra modern, white glove mansion with sleek amenities, this house is not for you. For us all of the charm outweighed any need for glossy accouterments. We had an easy to please, easy going crowd so this did not matter to us - if you are into the beauty of vintage, shabby chic, rustic country venues this is the place for you. You will need to bring in EVERYTHING. This may change as SOH becomes more popular but at the time of our wedding it was truly a DIY venue. They require you rent a toilet trailer, you will need to bring in catering, and ALL rentals, flowers, etc. You will probably want a golf cart to transport guests to and fro and there is no formal ‘parking’ or ‘valet’ - another reason for a golf cart.

    Every single person at SOH was kind, helpful, and supportive. Our wedding day was extraordinary and we felt like we were in great hands the entire time.
