Amazing, Stress-free experience
From the moment I got engaged, I couldn’t imagine our wedding anywhere other than Copake Country Club. Throughout the entire process, Kyleigh made it very obvious that we weren’t just another wedding, she wanted to make our day as special and unique as she could. After the initial meeting, we decided to go with a winter wedding and we couldn’t be happier with our decision. The Greens in the winter is so cozy and beautiful- just we wanted for our small, intimate wedding. Everything was completely customizable, we were able to add entree items that the chef didn’t have on the menu, but he was more that happy to accommodate and experiment to give us exactly what we wanted. We had a very short engagement, but Kyleigh was able to give us a stress-free experience and plan our perfect wedding in less than 3 months. We ended up with a snow storm the day of our wedding, but Kyleigh and the rest of the staff made sure everything went exactly as planned and moved things around last minute to accommodate indoor pictures. The entire experience was amazing and I highly recommend Copake Country Club and everything it has to offer.Sent on 02/10/2020

This was the first time i was tasked to be the best man at a wedding and let me tell you i took that job very serious. I didn’t want it to be a traditional wedding with the typical parties leading up to the big day. I wanted to give the guys one extra party so i threw the idea past Kyleigh to have 1 extra day with food and some fun. She loved the idea, and also knew I couldn’t pull this off without her. So the first every Bro-dal Shower(she got the name as well) at Copake cc was in the works. The side patio room at the club was all set up for a perfect guys day. Ended up being a great day of brunch,mimosas, oh and the added kicker. we set up a “minute to win it” game tournament(also her idea). I could not have do it without Kyleigh and her staff. They really made me look good as the best man, and definitely made my job a lot easier. I want to recommend anyone that is looking for a place to have a wedding or even throw a party/event Kyleigh @ Copake cc and Copake weddings is the person you need to talk to. Would not have been the same if we did the wedding anywhere else. So thank you again Kyleigh for all your help and support through a busy few months for not only the bride and groom but for the best man as well.Sent on 01/23/2020

Trust us, this place is amazing!
When we first walked into the space for our consult, we could already see that it was exactly what we wanted, but to see how it transformed on our wedding day...simply amazing!! Not only did the space, and landscape turn out to be everything that we wanted, but Kyleigh and her staff really worked their butts off to customize everything to what we wanted. We had lots of ideas and didn't really know where to start and Kyleigh was a big help on getting us organized and making sure our ideas came to fruition. Every aspect was customizable; from where we did the ceremony, foods for cocktail hour, what type of drink service, how was dinner served, desserts, decor, etc. Note: we had 65 guests and our budget was pretty tight, but the end result was more than we could've expected. We were amazed, all of our guests were amazed. Now, so many of them want to go just to visit the restaurant themselves. I don't know what we would've done without Kyleigh...we even had her as our officiant! If you're reading this then you might even think, "well, people only write reviews when they really like something, or hate it." But you're also reading this because you're looking for something that will "tip" you towards one place or another. Please let our review "tip" you in the direction to at least check it out!

October 2018 Wedding
We had the wedding weekend of our dreams at The Greens and The Barn at Copake Lake! The Greens event coordinator, Kyleigh, was amazing from the day of our first visit to the day of our wedding when mother nature decided to drop a nor'easter on us. But we were able to continue as planned with a ceremony outdoors as Kyleigh quickly ordered a tent and everything else we needed to make it work. We are so thankful for Kyleigh and her team at The Greens for helping to make our wedding day everything we hoped for and more! If you are looking for a unique venue (with a variety of space options) that has excellent food, great staff, beautiful scenery and the option to have family/close friends with you around the lake then I highly recommend you visit Copake Country Club. We are certainly looking forward to many more weekend getaways at this special place :)Sent on 11/26/2018

An incredible Hudson Valley wedding venue
My wife and I visited five or six different potential wedding venues in the Hudson Valley area. From our first visit a year and a half before our wedding we knew that The Greens at Copake Country Club (CCC) was the right choice for us. The venue had scenic views and an expansive but intimate reception area. In addition to being affordable compared to similar venues in the Hudson Valley, CCC had dozens of options for the ceremony and reception that make your wedding completely unique to you and your future spouse. When you see CCC you'll know if it's the right setting and vibe for the wedding day you want to create. For us, it was beyond perfect. What you may not pick up on is that this venue comes with the best wedding planner we could imagine.Sent on 12/06/2018
Working with Kyleigh was a dream from start to finish. We met with Kyleigh five or six times throughout the year before the wedding. In our first meeting she asked us lots of questions related to what kind of wedding and reception we wanted; what did we envision the day to be like. Again, everything at CCC is customizable so there were things that were important to us and things we didn't care about. She helped us navigate all of those choices, always highlighting things that could enhance our day. If there was something we wanted, she did everything in her power to make it happen. She is so well organized and prepared that even when a few months had passed between meetings, my wife and I actually needed her notes to prompt us on things we had chosen even though we were also taking notes. With our vision in mind, she was able to make recommendations from florist to DJ to food choices to room set up, and guide us through the planning process. Like many couples, we were navigating all of these worlds for the first time. Frankly, we couldn't have done it without Kyleigh.
Okay, sure, you expect a wedding planner, especially one that works for the venue, to be organized and helpful. However, I want to emphasize that Kyleigh has incredible interpersonal skills as well. From our first visit at CCC Kyleigh put us at ease. She had the right mix of being excited for and with us while also being a calming force. We looked forward to meeting with Kyleigh because working with her was fun and enjoyable, not just a means to an end. She is so dedicated to her couples and their happiness, she actually came in to meet with us while on maternity leave. We live in Brooklyn which made visiting a bit limiting, but she made the time to meet with us a month from our wedding to solidify final details.
CCC was perfect for us and they had the perfect wedding planner as well. If you're getting married in the Hudson Valley area you would be making a mistake if you don't at least visit CCC.

We had planned a small, intimate wedding. Everything we asked for was above and beyond. Staff was amazing, venueSent on 11/12/2018
Beautiful as planned, food was awesome! The chef helped us on a menu selection to suited to our guests. We stayed at the Barn at Copake Lake in conjunction with the wedding , and it was truly a special and memorable location. With heartfelt thanks for making our wedding the best weekend ever!

My bridal party and I recently stayed at the Barn at Copake Lake for my bachelorette party, and enjoyed an amazing dinner at the Greens during our stay.Sent on 10/17/2017
The barn was absolutely incredible, plenty of space and amazing features to enjoy. We had a group of 8 and everyone felt like they were on a vacation versus a bachelorette party, which is exactly what I wanted. Dinner was amazing, we got a beautiful table that allowed us to all to enjoy each other's company. We loved the shrimp, calamari, and flatbread appetizers. Most of us got the steak which was phenomenal. Everything was cooked perfectly, and we're a picky group of NYC foodies!
It was a weekend I'll never forget and would recommend it to any bride!

Our New Year's Eve wedding at the Greens was completely magical. Kyleigh went above and beyond throughout the whole planning process to help make it a beautiful, fun, and smooth event. My husband and I had the time of our lives and all of our guests gushed about how beautiful the space was and how much they loved the food! Kyleigh and her staff were all such pros - they took care of all of the little details that made the event such a success. We also stayed in the barn (which is gorgeous!) with our wedding party and held our rehearsal dinner there. If you are looking for a venue to have a wedding that feels totally authentic to you and your partner while getting to relax and not stress out about any of it - this is the spot!Sent on 01/07/2017

This is a wonderful place to get married. Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and Kyleigh the event coordinator is lovely and so helpful, as is the rest of the staff. And the food is delicious. Try to use the Barn for part or all of the event.Sent on 06/25/2016
For those looking for all inclusive packages, this isn't your place. This is for those seeking something customized and personal.

We held an event last night at this restaurant, a private party. While the atmosphere of the entire place is very special, looking out over the meticulously kept Copake Golf Course, we had a private room, fully glassed with gorgeous views that opened to the deck outside. From planning through clean-up the staff was incredible to work with in designing a menu specific to the party (not everything was on their extensive banquet menu, so they were great in allowing us additional choices), the decor was clean, natural decorations of wood and candlelight, fresh white linens, warm ambiance with wood stove. The staff was attentive, ever-present and extremely friendly and helpful. We required a specific set-up for a presentation as well as tables for silent auction items, and everything was done exactly as we wanted. They specialize in utilizing local fresh foods and the chef is a master of design and flavor! Food , service , atmosphere and very reasonable price made this an exceptional venue for our event and will be first choice for many more to come!Sent on 04/24/2016

From the moment I chose to have my wedding at the copake country club the general manager, Kyleigh (along with her staff), has been beyond remarkable. For an entire year this patient, kind, and understanding woman explored every single detail of my wedding to ensure it was perfect. Her ability to be flexible with my needs, her attentiveness to detail, and her calm cool collected attitude, is the true definition of professionalism. The level of quality and excellence she delivered can not be compared. My wedding fantasies came alive through her hard work and determination to ensure that my wedding was perfect. Thank you Kyleigh!!!Sent on 11/05/2015

We could not have been happier... We dealt with many weather-related surprises and the team at The Greens partnered with us through every twist and unexpected turn -- from rain to possible tropical storm to temperature drops. They ensured our wedding was the experience of a lifetime. They were flexible, responsive and committed to ensuring we were happy. They were not our vendor, they were our partner and became our friends.Sent on 10/23/2015

The Copake Country Club was the best wedding venue ever!Sent on 10/19/2015
Not only did they provide a beautiful location with an amazing staff, they went above and beyond to create our vision.
We had an outdoor ceremony planned that was moved under the (incredible) tent last minute due to rain, and the staff was prepared and quickly moved everything and made an amazing cozy ceremony. The whole day was a breeze.
They have the flexibility and connections to find and create everything you dreamed of. Kyleigh is the main point person who really wants to do everything she can to plan your ideal wedding. As wedding planning is the most stressful thing you will have to deal with for months on end, you will be so surprised at how easy and fun she makes it. Most of the time I sent her inspiration pictures and she found/or had exactly what I wanted. We decided to do buffet for ease, and the food was delicious! We also decided to make a weekend out of it and rented the barn off the club's property, that came with a boat, golf carts, kayaks, and a great fireplace. It was absolutely amazing! Stunning on the inside as it is the outside and everyone was very helpful when we had questions. I could go on and on about how great this establishment was!

PERFECT PERFECT PERFECT
We found the venue by accident when we inquired about renting the Barn. We went to see the venue and were immediately in love. The landscape and restaurant is stunning. Then, we met Kyleigh and were sold. She is calm, cool, collected, organized, flexible, and someone you totally want to entrust your wedding or event with. I am a professional event planner and I felt comfortable letting go of details and trust completely that her team had control.
They are the most hard working and accommodating group. Every staff member was fantastic, helpful, and professional. You could tell that they were a real team. That is so rare!
Additionally, their prices are far more affordable than most venues in the upstate area and they understand the need to work within a budget.
I would not change a thing.
We feel so lucky to have found them and can't wait to go back!
Some additional thoughts of how great they are:
- We had our rehearsal dinner at the Barn, catered by The Greens - amazing!
- Worth mentioning - the Barn comes with golf carts
- They gave us extra golf carts so the entire wedding party could move around in golf carts
- We had a specific layout we wanted - one outside for ceremony, another area for cocktails, inside for dinner, and back outside in another area for dancing. She worked with us the whole way to ensure we had good flow without separating the party.
- We had additional flowers from the flower farm we ordered from - Kyleigh took them and used them around the entire venue and down our aisle!
- She made us appetizer and dinner plates to ensure we could eat - and then also made us to-go bags!
- We stayed at the Barn throughout the week and her team moved all of us stuff back down there.
- We had brunch there the next morning - and she re-used the flowers again - I didn't even realize they were the same ones!

The Greens at Copake Country Club was the PERFECT place for our wedding. It was a beautiful venue overlooking the golf course and the gorgeous Copake Lake. Our outdoor ceremony had a beautiful view and everyone enjoyed the open air cocktail hour. The reception continued to enchant guests in the main room and patio area. The food was fresh and delicious and many guests commented how wonderful everything tasted. Kyleigh and her staff exceeded ours and our guest's expectations. They were organized, efficient, friendly and professional. Kyleigh not only met our needs, but went above and beyond to ensure everything went smoothly, all the while remaining unobtrusive throughout the process, ensuring we were able to enjoy our day. We couldn't have asked for a better venue, better food, or better overall experience.Sent on 06/29/2015

My husband and I couldn't have been more pleased with Kyleigh Zengen and the Greens at Copake Country Club. We held our wedding at the Barn at Copake Lake and used the services provided by the Greens' restaurant. We were blown away. The level of professionalism was unparalleled, the quality of service, food and hospitality, beyond superior, and the care and warmth employed to deliver an experience unique to us, outstanding. We would get married 100x here if we could. Our friends come from all paths of life, but are mostly New Yorkers/Manhattanites with access to all kinds of perks and experiences and yet so many of them kept telling us it was one of the most unique and special events they had attended. While we expect this type of comments from our friends, we do know a big part of it was due to the amazing experience we were able to deliver through Copake Country Club (The Greens restaurant, the Barn, and its amazing staff, which was personified in Kyleigh, its manager). This team knew how to deliver a theme, yet remain flexible to our needs and wishes to make our wedding the best day of our lives. We are very thankful we were able to work with them.Sent on 01/31/2015

This venue offered a beautiful and personal experience for our wedding. Everyone was very accommodating and the event went over very smoothly. As long as directions were firm and clear, the planning process went quite quick and simple. As it rained on our day, we were forced indoors for the majority of the time, but the staff worked diligently to make sure our guests weren't corralled or crowded anywhere. We were very happy with the whole experience.Sent on 11/02/2015

Kyleigh and the staff at the Greens made our wedding even more perfect than we had imagined. Everyone went above and beyond to provide for us, anticipating details that we hadn't even considered, and fixing little problems that arose. The service during the wedding was professional and friendly, and the food was exactly what we had wanted. We stayed at the barn for our entire wedding weekend, and we were pretty much catered to from the time we arrived to the time we left.Sent on 01/27/2015
