Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • Located on the grounds of the 18th-century Old Drovers Inn, this venue is a Hudson Valley treasure. And its location—just 80 miles north of NYC—makes it ideal for a weekend of exploring the surrounding wineries, farms, and hiking trails.
  • The Barn was custom-built for hosting unforgettable parties. Details like hand-hewn beams, a cathedral ceiling, and a floor made of reclaimed barn wood give the space a historic feel...but it's fully climate-controlled for year-round fun.
  • Oversized double doors open onto a quaint stone patio. Set with lounge furniture and lit by strings of market lights, it's the perfect spot for a cocktail hour or an intimate outdoor ceremony.
