In search of a place for a quaint winter getaway? Or how about a venue for your wedding where family and close friends can stay on property? Then look no further than the brand new Hasbrouck House—a hidden gem tucked away in the small town of Stone Ridge, New York.
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of touring the Hasbrouck House during a recent trip upstate. Knowing that the Hasbrouck House is owned and operated by the Gowanus Hospitality Group (the same owners of some of my NYC favorites, 501 Union and The Green Building), I admittedly had high expectations going in (especially when it came to the wallpaper). I’m happy to report that the Hasbrouck House did not disappoint.
Promoting itself as an inn that is more than just a wedding venue, the Hasbrouck House is poised to become a popular destination for city dwellers. For people looking for a getaway, the Hasbrouck House offers a variety of accommodations from single rooms to suites to carriage house apartments (hello, gorgeous soaking tub!).
The inn’s on-site restaurant, Butterfield, is also sure to attract foodies from near and far. I should mention that the wallpaper in the bar and club room adjacent to the restaurant is on point—right up there with the amazing wallpaper at 501 Union (one of the reasons why I fell in love with that venue in the first place).
And now for the nitty gritty on hosting a wedding at the Hasbrouck House. For small weddings with less than 50 guests, hosting the ceremony and reception at Butterfield is an option, using the indoor and outdoor spaces of the restaurant. But for larger weddings, everything will take place outdoors, with the ceremony and cocktail hour being held on the lawn and dinner and dancing taking place on the bluestone patio under a tent. The ideal capacity for a sit-down dinner on the patio is 150 guests, with up to 180 guests being able to be accommodated for a cocktail-style, floating supper reception.
One of the benefits of a wedding at the Hasbrouck House is that Butterfield is the exclusive caterer, so that’s one less vendor for couples to source and coordinate. And when hosting a wedding at the Hasbrouck House, a buyout of all of the rooms for the weekend is required. But who wouldn’t want to have the entire property to themselves and their guests?
Hasbrouck House still has good availability for Fall 2017 weddings, so if you’re recently engaged and hoping for a 2017 wedding, then do not miss the chance to tour the Hasbrouck House. And since they do require that all couples hire a third-party coordinator, yours truly can help you plan your wedding to perfection!
