    The Most Beautiful Location for our September Weddings!

    My husband and I have had the best experience working with Liz and the Erlowest team!! We live in the NYC area and when we had our initial visit at the Inn we knew hands down we wanted our wedding at the Inn. Nothing else compared to the views and it put our minds at ease to see the team on top of everything even during our first meeting. Liz responded to my thousands of questions, emails, and calls throughout the whole process and worked with us when we needed to postpone our big wedding to 2021, but still wanted to have a minimony this year. The second I handed over my decorations and other items to Liz the day of our minimony, my mind was so at ease and I knew the rest of our day was going to be amazing. It ended up being the perfect day, and the Erlowest team played a big part in that. We held our ceremony at North Pointe which was absolutely beautiful, and later we had dinner on the front terrace of the Inn with our 30 guests. I can't stress how amazing every detail of the day was, and our guests were so happy to see the Erlowest team keeping to CDC and NYS guidelines. The food was DELICIOUS and the cake was so good I had to restrain myself from eating the top tier on the drive back home. Our family stayed in the townhouses on the property which were so convenient and spacious that we booked the same ones for our event next year, and have more guests staying there as well. A HUGE thank you to Liz and the Erlowest team for making our wedding absolutely perfect - we can't wait to do it again next year!!
