The Kaaterskill is a beautiful farm in the Hudson Valley Area hosting chic-rustic weddings. Our Classic red barn and sweeping views of the Catskill Mountains give off a romantic atmosphere. We believe there is no place more beautiful for a wedding than the Hudson Valley and no venue more unique or picturesque than The Kaaterskill. Located just 20 minutes from the Olana State Historic Site across the Hudson River, this quaint venue exudes charm.

Make it your own
After looking around venues in the Hudson area, we really fell in love with The Kaaterskill. Tucked away and in a secluded space - the venue truly felt like it was our own for our entire wedding weekend. We wanted the centerpiece of our wedding decor to be the nature - and the Catskills in the background and the beautiful grounds of the venue was a perfect fit for what we envisioned. Working with the owner, coordinator, and grounds keeper was seamless and easy. They were very flexible with our stay and our planning. If you want an easy going, DIY, make it your own type of wedding - I would highly recommend this venue. You do have to source and bring in most of the components so if you are looking for a one-stop-shop this isn't the place for you. We loved renting the space for an entire weekend, having our close family and friends stay on the grounds with us, and really enjoying our wedding into the late night. Thank you again to Julieta and Alex for helping us with our day!Sent on 11/07/2018

Beautiful unique venue
The Kaaterskill is a beautiful venue where you can let your creativity run free. If you are looking for a venue where you can truly make your wedding unique and meaningful, this is the venue for you. Not only is the scenery stunning, but they are an animal sanctuary as well!Sent on 01/31/2019

When we stumbled upon The Kaaterskill during a July 4th trip to the Catskills, it exceeded expectations. I love this venue because not too many people have heard of it (coming from NYC, many wedding guests have been to most "INCREDIBLE" venues within the tri-state area). It's a MAGICAL, I repeat MAGICAL venue. We fell in love the moment we drove into the long drive way, to meeting the rescue farm animals, to setting eyes on the adorable pond house, to touring the entire property and seeing the main house, etc. Treat it like a big property you can rent to make your dream wedding come true if it fits your atheistic (and you have a vision). I can't wait to have a 10 year wedding anniversary party at The Kaaterskill, can't come soon enough. The Kaaterskill's ability to host as many guests as we needed and work with us for an indoor/outdoor wedding was perfection. You definitely need a rain plan and be able to work with various vendors in order to execute the big day. It seems overwhelming but it's not. The team is extremely helpful in making suggestions to make your event a huge success.Sent on 11/07/2016
We just fell in love with this place. There are so many options on this property for a wedding. Very few venues have this kind of setup with full accommodations. We work at a lot of venues from Brooklyn to Burlington, VT and this place is one the best.
I highly recommend the Kaaterskill Inn to my brides. It offers many opportunities for making beautiful photos in a unique environment.
We LOVE this venue and Kate is a GEM to work with!!!! It’s such a beautiful property, and at the foot of the KAATERSKIL CLOVE, (WE LOVE TO CAMP AT NORTH LAKE, UP TOP)….MOST IMPORTANTLY, KATE IS SO WELL ORGANIZED AND COMMUNICATIVE, SHE MAKES IT EASY FOR US TO ENSURE THAT LOGISTICS, SET-UP AND SERVICE ARE SMOOTH AND SIMPLE FOR US. We can't recommend Kaaterskill highly enough and look forward to bringing brides and grooms great parties there in the future.
