The Mansion Inn, a Victorian mansion in the Albany, New York area, hosts weddings for couples who want a vintage or rustic look for their special day. With the historic mansion and a barn location for couples to choose from, this venue hosts events as individual as couples themselves. Located a fifteen-minute drive from the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, this venue is both convenient and private.
Facilities and Capacity
Couples can invite up to 150 guests to join them on this four-acre estate. The grounds are well-kept and filled with gardens and ponds, where you can find The Mansion Inn’s two resident swans. Couples can host their reception in a grand tent on the property with solid wooden flooring, or inside one of the two indoor locations. A reception in the mansion takes place in the parlors with fireplaces, large windows and antique decor. The barn exudes rustic charm with warm wooden walls and beams, as well as circular chandeliers overhead and plenty of natural light.
Couples who choose not to use the mansion as the location for their ceremony or reception, and instead take advantage of the elegant property or rustic barn, still have access to the inn and surrounding areas. The Mansion Inn provides the following services to couples for their wedding:
Focusing on the individualization of couples and their weddings, The Mansion Inn offers no predetermined packages as catering options. Instead, their head chef, Rick Bieber, works with couples to create a unique menu for their event.
Ten suites can be found inside the venue, each with massive period beds and private baths. Each room is uniquely styled and decorated with antique furniture and cozy linens. Some rooms contain fireplaces and all boast large windows that look out over the grounds of the mansion.
The Mansion Inn was first built as a 23-room estate in 1866. Now on the National Register of Historic Places, the inn served as a residence to The Paper Bag King, George West. After 150 years the house remains much the same as it appeared in its conception.

Perfect venue for our Chinese tea ceremony
We rented out the Mansion Inn the whole weekend for a small elopement celebration / Chinese tea ceremony. The rooms were gorgeous and our guests had a lot of fun sleeping over (breakfast was amazing!) Chef Rick was so much fun to work with and was excited to whip up some of our traditional Chinese meals. He was so accommodating and co-designed the menu with us to feature home recipes. Annie was a lifesaver and Lori was amazing as well. The day of was stress free thanks to all of them plus the attendants (even helped us sew a button that popped off!!). Can’t say enough good things about them. Thank you!Sent on 07/21/2019

Best Venue Ever!
We chose the "mid-week" package at the Mansion. From our first visit we KNEW this was the place for us. We wanted something that was not the typical "banquet room" feel. This is the place! Lori is amazing and informative. Annie is attentive and helpful and Rachel pulled everything together flawlessly. Chef Rick is the best. One big seller for us is that we had use of the entire property, the Mansion, the grounds, the deck, the barn. There is only one event at a time at the venue. It is absolutely beautiful...all of it. The food is amazing and so many of our guests were beyond impressed with everything. The staff is beyond accommodating with everything...from the moment you arrive on your big day they are there to make sure everything runs smoothly and get you anything you need to packing everything up for you after your event. We could not possibly be more impressed with The Mansion Inn!Sent on 10/19/2019

We can’t wait to have another wedding here!
Everything about the Mansion Inn is enchanting. The grounds, the exceptional staff, chef Rick, our planner Annie (The A Team), the quirky historic buildings..... We can’t say enough about how grateful we are.Sent on 02/10/2019
The Mansion Inn is so beautiful. The ladies that run it are pretty cool too. They are so friendly and run a wedding at top notch. I'll never forget the first wedding I captured there, there were purple butterfly moths that appeared out of nowhere inside the tent right after the ceremony and then they were gone, it was amazing to see! If you are looking for a venue just on the outskirts of Saratoga, this is your place! Out of the Ordinary Photography looks forward to capturing more events there in the future!
We love working with the great ladies at the Mansion Inn. Fabulous venue! Gorgeous setting! Professional and fun!! Always look forward to a wedding at this exquisite location as it is absolutely one of the best in the area!
