Why We Like This Place

  • Set on the banks of the Mohawk River, the mansion dates back to the 1700s, lending a touch of history to your event. It’s also just minutes from downtown Schenectady and close to the Capital Region.
  • The newly renovated ballroom, with its multipaned windows, coffered ceiling and beautiful architectural details provides an elegant backdrop for your reception. You can also enjoy the riverfront gazebo and al fresco patio in the summer, and cozy up in front of the fireplace in their restaurant, Angelo’s Tavolo, during the winter.
  • Overnight accommodations surround you in comfort. All of their suites offer luxurious amenities, and the deluxe rooms feature a four-post King bed, separate living and sleeping areas, two-person Jacuzzi and gas fireplace. Ask about their Romantic Getaway Package!
