Erica was incredibly kind and flexible while working with us during our wedding weekend.Sent on 02/08/2016

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.Sent on 09/16/2014
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.

Shakespeare on the Hudson is a spectactuclar place to have your wedding. We had 150 very happy guests and a great time was had by all. We set a tent set up on the lawn and had a sit down dinner and ceremony over looking the river. Then we moved the party to the pavillion where the music and dancing continued until 3 am. The home was very large and all were very comfortable. So nice to have this setting to merge our families. It was a perfect day and a wonderful night with friends and family.Sent on 09/09/2014
Great location for an outdoor wedding, river views with seclusion make this spot perfect for anyone's ceremony and reception!
Shakespeare on Hudson inhabits an absolutely beautiful space on the Hudson River. The views are remarkable and only adds to the Warmth and Depth of Your Most Special Day.
