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.

Not only are the grounds and the views amazing, but the coordinator, Eileen, is literally superhuman. Not only did she work with me and ease my concerns and answer questions nearly everyday before my wedding but she made the day stress free. The power went out the morning of my wedding right as hair and makeup arrived. Eileen spoke to everyone she needed and got it back on within an hour when they originally quoted her two. She blocked people from bothering me on my wedding and set everything up exactly how I asked. She put us in touch with the head chef, John, who is just incredible, and made sure everything we wanted was done. Also, The Abbey made planning and executing a wedding during covid so painless. Eileen kept pivoting the plans as guidelines and ordinances changed, and allowed us to hold our small wedding with social distancing and we’re having an “encore” reception next year. I don’t even have the words to express how perfect everything was. I would give this place a thousand stars if I could.Sent on 09/19/2020
The Abbey Inn & Spa's reply:Thank you. What a beautiful review. The loss of power on a beautiful day in Peekskill, made for a stressful start to your wedding day. It was a town issue that thankfully was resolved and restored in under an hour. You were so calm and collected, which helped everyone else relax. John is a firm believer is "service" and never disappoints our customers. Your wedding ceremony & cocktail hour was absolutely perfect. The weather was as well. I am still obsessed with your wooden flower bouquet! I am telling everyone about how gorgeous it was. Now, can we talk about your dress? It was perfect for you and you were stunning!! Your pictures are amazing, thank you for sharing them with me. I am really looking forward to your "Encore" wedding next year! Thank you for choosing The Abbey for your wedding day. It was our honor and greatest pleasure to assist you and David. Wishing you both a lifetime full love, light and miracles. XO Eileen, John and the entire staff at The Abbey.

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.Sent on 07/21/2020
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!
