About

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.

Facilities and Capacity
Exposed wood all around glows with the couple's lighting of choice. A white tent adjacent to the barn adds an option for dinner or dancing. Across the property, locations such as a garden with a waterfall or a ringlet of trees make for picturesque ceremonies. The petite Pond House offers a setting for cocktail hours or after parties.

    Loved this venue!

    My husband and I got married here on 10/19/2019. From the moment I pulled up to this venue I knew this was where I wanted to get married here, I literally almost cried. This was exactly the type of style we were looking for. The staff were extremely helpful throughout the entire process. Although it’s very DIY, I couldn’t have chosen a better place.

    Everything we wanted at the Kaaterskill

    The Kaaterskill is the type of venue that makes writing a succinct review in this format quite difficult. We were in search of a simple yet distinct nature-centered venue where we could host our mostly DIY-style wedding for 110 of our closest family and friends. In this venue, we found a truly inspiring setting with a personality and life of its own that served as the perfect backdrop for celebration. The depth and detail of The Kaaterskill must be experienced in person to be understood, but we will attempt to highlight the most useful characteristics in regards to hosting a wedding.
    Our initial visit to the property was all we needed to be sold on the vibe. Anna responded promptly to our request, and set up a time for us to come visit overnight. Alex, the property manager greeted us warmly, and showed us around the stunning grounds. The “wow” factor is immediate- the farm is even more beautiful in person than the pictures, and the peace, quiet, and serenity create an immediate calming effect. Ducks come and go from the pond, and the farm animals graze amidst horses farther out in the pasture. Everything is well maintained, yet rustic and real- the people and creatures belong there. The barn is perfect for a low key yet charming reception. It's open to the fresh air of the farm, with plenty of space for vendors to work and 3 comfortable restrooms.
    Alex showed us the accommodations, and our decision was even more definitive. The six suites in the main house are absolutely perfect for the immediate family/wedding party. We could all stay in close proximity yet still have some privacy when we wanted it. The spacious and well stocked kitchen perfectly serves meal-centered socializing, and the eclectically decorated common area provides even more room to spread out. The guest house across the driveway has 3 additional bedrooms and common space perfectly suited for other relatives and close friends attending.
    The Kaaterskill is conveniently located within a few minutes drive of Catskill, Palenville, and Saugerties. While the rustic setting makes it easy to unplug and feel far away from the city, these towns have most everything you may need when it comes to groceries, wine/liquor, and supplies.
    While the facilities provide all of the necessary concrete needs for a wedding, it is the staff that delivers the intangibles. The groundskeepers Alex and Sandra are fully dedicated to the mission of the property, and invest a deeply personal level of care and attention into making things easy and comfortable. Alex was always available to answer any logistical questions in regards to the grounds, and provided invaluable advice on so many things that didn’t cross our minds. The staff exceeded all expectations, and became and essential part of planning a DIY wedding like ours.
    We could not be any more earnest in our recommendation of the Kaaterskill and their staff for your wedding celebration.

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.
