Unforgettable wedding weekend!
We are so happy we choose to have our wedding at Windham Mountain Resort! We were sold on it as soon as we saw The Club. We loved how rustic yet elegant it looked. Once we booked a date, Erika was very helpful throughout the entire planning process during the year leading up to our wedding. We had pictured having the summit-top ceremony and patio cocktail hour however it turned out to be really windy with freezing rain on our wedding day. Tim was our day-of coordinator and worked with us the entire week leading up the wedding to come up with a plan A, B, and C. He was super responsive, flexible, organized, and calming- everything you would want in a day-of coordinator. We went with our back up plan and had the ceremony in the breezeway, cocktail hour in Seasons, and reception in The Club. Even though it was not what we originally pictured, we LOVED the way everything looked and felt. We wouldn't have changed a thing! Every guest commented on how amazing they thought they venue was and had so much fun! And then there was the food...beyond beyond beyond amazing. We had the stations dinner and sadly, I didn’t get to try everything because I was so full! There was plenty of food and it was all high quality and very unique. The guests raved about the food especially the risotto station and cheese station. Chef Chris worked with us to deliver exactly what we wanted. All of the bartenders and servers were incredibly polite and helpful as well! Besides, the wedding itself- we also enjoyed working with The Winwood Inn, Jennifer at the Windham Country Club for rehearsal dinner, and Rockin Mexicana for the after party and morning after breakfast. The food and service continued to be outstanding. Overall we had the best wedding weekend! My biggest advice is not to stress about the weather because it will be amazing no matter what. Highly recommend Windham!Sent on 01/10/2019

A Perfect Place for a Wedding
Windham Mountain Resort is an amazing place to hold a wedding. Our experience there was nothing short of incredible. Our three primary contacts were Erika DeWitt, Tim Ohle, and Chef Chris Arquiett. Erika gave us our initial tour and was always available to answer our follow-up questions. She spent a lot of time with us on our first visit and showed us around. Windham has multiple areas for ceremonies and receptions – in fact, another wedding was setting up as we toured, so it was a great opportunity to see what the place can actually look like during a real wedding. Once we chose a date and booked it, Tim Ohle (Culinary/Special Events Manager), became our primary point of contact until our wedding. I cannot say enough good things about Tim. This guy is THE BEST. We booked with only 7 months to go, and Tim was far and away the best thing about Windham Mountain. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly – FLEXIBLE. He worked with us to select everything from locations to linens. He helped us get custom beers, wines and menu items. He answered our 8 million questions and never demonstrated even the slightest bit of annoyance (and believe me, the hubs and I can definitely ask annoying questions). When we wanted to squeeze a few more guests into the smaller (but better) room, he literally got us 150 chairs that would make the table arrangements feel less crowded. Come on - THE MAN GOT US ALL NEW CHAIRS! As the ceremony grew closer, we were introduced to Chef Chris. He couldn’t have been nicer, more genuine, or more flexible with his menu. We spent a morning with him tasting various items and going over our likes and dislikes. He cares deeply about his food. We decided to do the Summit Stations dinner (sort of like a buffet, but with a dozen or so different stations of various types of cuisine). Let me tell you what all of our guests had to say after our wedding: “This was hands-down the BEST food we’ve EVER had at a wedding.” From an incredible fish carving-station (that’s right – huge whole mahi-mahis carved right in front of the guests) to a dumpling/dim sum station, the food was fresh, delicious, beautiful, and plentiful. GO WITH THE SUMMIT STATIONS – YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT. I had mentioned to Chef Chris at our tasting that duck confit was my favorite dish, ever. While we couldn’t incorporate it into the menu, Chris surprised me with it on my wedding night. He had specially prepared some duck confit – just for me. It was really an amazing gesture, and demonstrates just how meaningful his clients’ happiness is to him. Our wedding day didn’t go exactly as planned. We had intended for our guests to take the ski lift to the summit for the ceremony (you know, as you do when you get married on a ski mountain). We knew the inherent risks of this from the moment we booked – if Ski Patrol saw lightning, the lift would be closed. A thunderstorm an hour before the wedding quashed our plan, and Tim quickly rolled with the punches and got us set up in the Plan B location. He was patient and kind with me (because I was definitely vocal about my disappointment), and the ceremony was beautiful anyway. We did our reception in The Club – a gorgeous room with an Aspen lodge-like feel. Service was amazing. Bartenders were amazing. Everything was amazing. Windham Mountain Resort was hands-down the best choice we made. The people there are kind, honest and trustworthy. The prices for an event of our scale (150 people) absolutely CANNOT be beat. Let me repeat: Windham is very affordable. One of the reasons we chose to book here was because it’s one of the few venues we visited that will do a “hosted bar” (essentially you pay per-drink as opposed to an open bar for 150 people). If you’re on a budget, consider this as an option – none of your guests will know, as it doesn’t appear any different than your traditional open bar. I can tell you that we saved over $5,000 by going with a hosted bar. Overall – Windham Mountain is a beautiful place to have a wedding. The staff there will work with you to give you whatever you need. When you’re there, they treat you like family.Sent on 07/22/2019
To Erika, Tim and Chris: We love you guys. THANK YOU for everything.
Windham Mountain offers so many beautiful options for anyone looking to get married in the Catskills. Their mountain top ceremonies have a beautiful view and their indoor spaces are beautiful, well kept and comfortable. I would suggest to anyone looking to have a unique, beautiful wedding in the Catskill Mountains take a look at Windham Mountain!
Bagpiping is my profession and I've just played the most colorful Autumn wedding atop the hill...I piped up the ski lift and back down...at the bottom all guests are greeted with a warm and generously catered cocktail hour with outdoor fire pits surrounded by sidas andeasy chairs. Fall foliage comes in early with full dramatic colors of yellow,orange,and red before any leave have fallen. Superb location.
Our clients LOVE The Windham Mountain Resort, if you are looking for elegant venue with a view look no further! The view, ambiance, food and staff are amazing.
