Why We Like This Place

  • It’s located in the gorgeous mountains above the Hudson Valley, only about 2.5 hours from NYC. Nestled in the “Forever Wild” Catskill Forest Preserve, Full Moon spans 100 idyllic acres of forests, streams, meadows and fields. Simple, rustic structures (including the pretty open-sided barn or lighted and heated Tent Pavilion for your reception) keep the focus on the beauty of the surrounding nature.
  • Magical weekend-long events are their speciality. Create a true destination wedding by inviting guests on a mini-vacation. In addition to the turn-of-the-century “Valley View” inn, which has B&B-style rooms, the resort provides many lovely lodges and cottages—even tent camping and a yurt. Overnight wedding guests are also treated to breakfast and lunch in the art-filled Cafe. Single day Sunday overnight events are available as well.
  • In-house catering is creative and fun. Full Moon has a flare for fare that’s designed to please groups of all kinds. From hot buffet breakfasts and lunches in the Café and down-home country barbecues by the creek to tantalizing hors d’oeuvres under the maple trees on the lawns and formal gourmet dinners in the Tent Pavilion or Barn (with vegetarian and organic options), your guests will love the warm, welcoming menus.
