Hudson Valley Grandeur, part #3, Weddings at Wineries and Barns

Hudson Valley, one of our favorite homes away from home.

The Circa Barn 1799 105 Simons Road Ancramdale, NY 12503

Circa 1799 Barn is the go to venue for a private county affair. Corn fields and the Berkshire mountains surround this historical and beautiful barn; you might as well be in Montana or any given European country side.Hosting one of a kind events since 2001, this 200 year old barn was transported to Ancramdale from Fort Plain and reassembled to last a lifetime.

Built in 1790 this restored barn is as private and beautiful a setting that you will ever find. Located in the northern most tip of the Catskill Mountains, Annick de Bellefeuille purchased the barn and its property in 1987 and fully restored it to its full grandeur. The owners being New Yorkers, chose this venue as their own home away from home.


The Kaaterskill in Catkill, New York is a lovely place to host a rustic and polished affair. The grounds and staff are impeccable, some of my favorite. You may call Kate Arel (518) 512-9722 or email:
