    Wonderful Wedding Venue!

    I cannot say enough about how beautiful and welcoming Bykenhulle House is! We visited several Hudson Valley venues, but Bykenhulle stole our hearts! It was a perfect destination for our small September wedding. From the planning stages to the post-wedding clean up, we worked closely with Kimberly, who was outstanding! Professional, carrying, responsive, and resourceful, she helped us coordinate all the details of the day, from room reservations at the B&B to the site visits with our florist (Floral Fantasies by Sara!) and the caterer (BridgeCreek Catering!). On the day of the wedding, Kimberly, in concert with the Bykenhulle and Bridge Creek staff, made sure that our day was perfect! Our guests still talk about how gorgeous Bykenhulle House and gardens are!

    Bykenhulle House is a wonderful place to host a wedding. My son's wedding was perfect from start to finish. Kimberly the events planner was extremely helpful, and the caterer and photographer she recommended were excellent.

    Fantastic!

    Everyone I worked with at the Bykenhulle house was an absolute pleasure. Kimberly was able to customize our wedding so it perfect for our intimate wedding and able to have my father there who was in a wheelchair with no issues at all. She went above and beyond to make sure every detail was exactly what we wanted which made our day much less stressful knowing she was there for anything we may need. I also can't wait to stay there for our one year anniversary in the B&B!

    Kimberly and Maggie are the best! They were in tune with what we were looking for in the bridal shower we held at Bykenhulle B&B. All of our guests loved this venue. I HIGHLY recommend it for any event-we now have our 'go-to' for future celebrations.

    Not only is the Bykenhulle stunning with the manicured gardens and beautiful rooms but the staff is outstanding! Kimberly, the events manager is very friendly and accommodating. She is very easy to work with and an asset to the Bykenhulle. I strongly recommend your next event be at the Bykenhulle! You and your guests will be in love.

    Our daughter's wedding was a great success due to a combination of the beautiful venue, great service and caring staff at the Bykenhulle. The ceremony on the gorgious landscaped grounds, the outdoor cocktail hour and the perfect reception space made it the most memorable event. It's a beautiful historic property and we were also able to reserve all six rooms at the Inn for the wedding party which really made the experience extra special. Having the entire property dedicated to our event makes such a difference. Lola's catering was a perfect match for us and they worked closely with Jackie at the Bykenhulle to make everything seamlessly perfect. Loved Jackie and everything about the wedding at the Bykenhulle House. We'll never forget that day. Can't say enough about it.

    We visited about 8 different venues and Bykenhulle was the first one. We kept thinking back to it as we toured the others because it was perfect for our size wedding of 60 people. Other places were too large and impersonal or too small. The owner and his daughter are genuinely good people and that is a big reason why we chose Bykenhulle. They worked with us on the pricing when guests canceled only 8 days prior. They added a beautiful covered patio and stone path and ceremony location about a year ago. The gardens are beautiful and great for guests to experience during cocktail hour. The whole facility is clean and well manicured. They provided a lead person on the our wedding day to work with vendors as they arrived so I can get my hair and makeup done which was greatly appreciated. We also booked all six rooms for us and our families so we had the whole place to ourselves.

    At Bykenhulle House I had the wedding of my dreams. The grounds were beautiful. The improvements they made were phenomenal so that anyone wanting an outdoor wedding can have an amazing experience. The reception area has a simple elegance that adds to the charm of the property. The history of the house itself is great and the owner Bill takes great pride in sharing it's story. Bill, his daughter Mary and Larry, who I discovered can do just about anything, were fantastic. They were always available and friendly. Thank you so much for everything. I would recommend Bykenhulle House to anyone.

    We had our ceremony on July 12, 2014 and it was perfect. We had a small crowd 40 people they all remarked how beautiful the place is. The staff is very helpful Mary and Larry. We also rented out the B&B for the night so it was nice to sit and relax with a few of our guests that night and for breakfast the next morning. The B&B was wonderful as well. I would recommend this venue for weddings and for B&B.

    Such a gorgeous venue! The grounds are absolutely stunning and the rooms are adorable. We rented out all the rooms both the night before and the night of our wedding. Bill, the owner, is such a sweetheart and came down to breakfast to chat the morning of my wedding. If you are using bykenhulle as your venue make sure you book Lola's as your caterer. They do a fabulous job here!

    The Bykenhulle House was every thing we had ever dreamed and more! We wanted the day and night all to ourselves and our guests and that is exactly what we got! The grounds are amazing, it is private, and very classy all together. Working with Jackie was great. She was there anytime we had a question. Even when we had a problem at the last minute with the table cards, she figured it out and I didn't even have to think twice about it. The bed and breakfast rooms were rented overnight to our guests as well and we all got to have an amazing breakfast together the next morning. It was an amazing day and I wouldn't change a thing.

    We could not have chosen a more perfect place to have our wedding. The grounds were beautifully kept and the house is classy, warm and has tremendous personality. Jackie, the manager, was attentive, professional, and cheerful from the beginning of the process until the end. She was the kind of behind the scenes glue that makes any sucessful event go off without a hitch. The recommended caterer we selected (Bridge Creek Catering) did a fantastic job with gourmet food and lovely presentation. So many wedding venues lack personality and feel like "wedding factories", the entire staff as well as the owners of the Bykenhulle House made our wedding the kind of warm, memorable event that we as well as our guests will remember fondly for the rest of our lives. I could not have asked for more.
    Additionally- my husband and I are both in the Army- neither of us were in New York to plan the wedding and Jackie helped us put it all together via email from start to finish. Amazing!!!

    October 24th Wedding

    I had my wedding at Bykenhulle House on October 24th and it was absolutely perfect!!! The second I stepped foot in the door, I felt an emotional connection to the house. I felt like I was at home. The staff is one of the main reasons why I chose this venue for my wedding. Kim was extremely professional and accommodating.

    We had our wedding ceremony at The Bykenhulle House Bed and Breakfast. Our ceremony was beautiful, small and very intimate. Due to inclement weather our ceremony was moved to the very elegant and stunning ballroom. Where everything went smoothly, guests were happy and our cake was delicious. Truly beautiful and historic home perfect for vintage style wedding ceremony. Thanks Kimberly, Rev. Lisa Zaro, Maria and Bill!

    We had a small ceremony of only 30 people, the venue is the perfect size for an intimate wedding and has great gardens and outdoor areas for pictures afterwards. On the day of our wedding Kimberly coordinated with the florist, musicians, photographer, officiant and our bridal parties so that everything went smoothly. My husband and I opted to not do "first look" pictures and Kimberly made sure he didn't see me before I walked down the aisle.

    Everything was awesome with the venue! We rented out the entire B&B for two nights and the breakfast was great! Mary was wonderful to work with. The only slight downside was the Site Manager, she followed us around and made us feel a bit uncomfortable, like she thought we were going to steal something. Other than that great, highly recommend!

    Bykenhyulle House is a beautiful venue and Jackie, the manager, is lovely to work with. The bridal suite is gorgeous! We had a lovely, classy wedding.
    Keep in mind that you need work separately with an outside caterer and provide your own linens, tableware, and tent, which adds to your own responsibility and planning. Jackie was helpful with connecting us with a wonderful caterer who has done many events at Bykenhulle.
