About The Abbey Inn & Spa

An enchanted retreat set at the gateway to the Hudson Highlands in Peekskill, New York, The Abbey Inn & Spa is nestled on a hillside overlooking the Hudson River. The boutique hotel welcomes with distinctive guest rooms and suites, stunning meeting and event settings, serene gardens, a tranquil spa and fitness center, as well as Apropos—a farm-to-table, Mediterranean-inspired dining destination that celebrates the bounty of the Hudson Valley -- just one hour from Grand Central Terminal and 3 minutes from the Peekskill Metro North Station.

As the Lower Hudson Valleys newest and most unique catering venue, The Abbey Inn offers a diverse selection of spectacular spaces for milestone events, intimate family celebrations & enchanted wedding to remember. Enjoy a beautiful seasonal event with or without a tent on the Grand Terrace as a separate function or in conjunction with adjacent Highlands Ballroom. Options include a wedding ceremony within the ballroom, followed by a cocktail reception on The Grand Terrace returning to the ballroom for an elegant feast and dancing.

The Highlands Ballroom, located in the former church, is The Abbey Inn's premier event space offering undeniable "wow factor." At over 2,000 square feet with cathedral ceilings, this soaring space can be customized for a wide range of gatherings from a spectacular wedding to a business conference with full A/V capabilities.

The Cornerstone Room at The Abbey Inn, located in the former convent, is the perfect venue for smaller events or a more intimate wedding. This beautiful 742 square-foot room, adorned with historic hand painted ecclesiastical wall coverings and stained-glass windows, complimented with contemporary lighting, creates a one-of-a-kind memorable space. This unique room is located in the hotel building within the former convent chapel and features a double height cathedral ceiling.

Key to The Abbey Inn & Spa’s uniqueness is its location on historic Fort Hill, site of an American outpost during the Revolutionary War, as well as its setting within the former convent of the Episcopal Sisters of Saint Mary’s, built at the turn of the century.

    One Of A Kind Venue and Experience

    The Abbey truly is a one of a kind venue. We visited countless other wedding venues and nothing compares to the beauty and uniqueness of The Abbey. We never knew it was possible to feel like we were a world away while being so close to the City. It’s very apparent that a great deal of thought was put into the restoration of the 1890s convent and chapel, turning it into a beautiful escape. Also, the views of the Hudson River are breathtaking, especially during a sunset.

    Working with Eileen has been an all-around great experience. She is transparent, responsive, and takes the time to talk through the details. Especially while planning and re-planning a wedding during this uncertain time, we couldn’t have asked for anyone better to work with. She is extremely creative and thinks outside the box, using her experience and building on the vision you have for your big day.

    Now, onto the food. Chef John Paidas is incredible, so much thought has been put into the menu. Meticulous attention to the details, from the flavors to the plating – everything has been considered. Our tasting was one to remember and we can’t wait to celebrate our big day at The Abbey with great food, family and friends!

    The Abbey Inn & Spa's reply:

    Danielle,
    Thank you for such an amazing review. I was thrilled when you and Sebastian chose to have your ceremony & reception at The Abbey! You both took a leap of faith, booking your wedding in November 2019, well before The Abbey was even open. Seeing your faces when you came back for your tasting, after not seeing The Abbey in person for months, was thrilling for me. I know we had ZOOM calls to keep you up-to-date with all the final touches, but nothing beats seeing our Majestic Abbey in person! Our journey together has been exciting, yet ever changing! I applaud you both for your patience and understanding the changes we have had to make during this unprecedented time. It takes a very dedicated "Team" to work together and come up with a "New Normal" way of enjoying wedding ceremonies & intimate receptions. Chef John has been an incredible part of this transition. I am so happy that you both could see & taste the meticulous attention to detail & flavor profiling that John creates in every course. Some of his plating looks like a piece of art; not sure if you want to eat it or admire it! It is truly my honor and greatest pleasure to continue this journey with you. We all look forward to celebrating your beautiful day ... September 24, 2020! It will be the most romantic, incredible day of your lives! LOVE is in full bloom at The Abbey. XO Eileen, Chef John & the entire team at The Abbey.

Eileen (The Director of Catering, Wedding & Events Specialist), is amazing to work with. She’s responsive, welcoming, and flexible to work with! Can’t wait to have our dream wedding here.
