Perfect Wedding posted 4/30/2014 (modified 5/1/2014)

We had our wedding here last weekend and I cannot imagine a more perfect place to have held it. The food was incredible, the venue was beautiful and the staff was amazing. They were so accommodating and helpful all through the process. Kimberly Ann, the events coordinator, made helpful suggestions and gave so much attention to detail. And Gus, our Maitre'd, made sure that everything went exactly according to plan! When we went for our tasting, to select the final menu, it was both romantic and delicious...and the food was just as good at the reception! The wines they selected were a perfect accompaniment. If you're getting married in Westchester County, NY, this is the place to go! I will definitely use them again, next time I have a party to cater!

Fantastic Venue and Service posted 3/1/2014 (modified 3/2/2014)

Planning a wedding is supposed to be stressful right? However working with Kimberly and Gustavo made planning my wedding a complete breeze!. They were available whenever I needed them, giving me suggestions and just making the whole process simple and fun. Kimberly was always available to answer any question even if I had already asked it before!
When the day finally came everything went smoothly, they were present without being intrusive. On our special day we were able to enjoy our time with our family and friends and not have to worry about anything because Kimberly and Gustavo had already taken care of it.
The food was fantastic all our guests enjoyed everything from the cocktail hour to dessert.
We had an outdoor wedding in October. The setting was beautiful.
Both my husband and I highly recommend this venue for any and every special occasion!

From our first visit to the Kittle House, we were so happy with the service we received. Everyone worked so hard to make the day perfect. Kimberly Ann and Gustavo were both so sweet. Every meeting with anyone from the Kittle House was a pleasure. We are just glad we can go back to the restaurant for many celebrations to come! I would recommend them to anyone.

It was a magical day made perfect by the wonderful work of the entire staff of the Kittle house. Kimberly kept us aware of all the special arrangements that we could have to make this a day to remember. Everyone who attended had only positive reviews about the venue. I would strongly recommend the Kittle House to anyone looking to hold a special occasion.

Magical posted 10/18/2014

Everything about the wedding was perfect. Kimberly and Gustavo anticipated and filled every need. During the planning process they were always available and patient. The bride and groom were very specific as to what they wanted, and worked hard to make it personal and customized. Kimberly was totally accommodating. Everyone said it was the best wedding they had ever attended. The ceremony was outside in a beautiful spot with a great view. The reception was inside and spilled outside as well. The venue is very special and unique. You won't see other brides around like you do at some places. It's a private experience.
Oh, and we stayed at the inn that night. Also highly recommended.

Amazing!! posted 10/18/2014 (modified 10/18/2014)

September 20, 2014 - A perfect wedding! Our son and his beautiful bride were married at Crabtree's Kittle House. Their celebration was truly special from start to finish and in no small part due to the outstanding ability of the entire Kittle House team. From the organization to the attention everyone paid to EVERY detail; from the amazing grounds to the wonderful ballroom, and the food, wine and desserts (still hearing many, many compliments) it was all perfect!

Kimberly Ann and Gustavo are the most dedicated professionals who work seamlessly with their team. Everyone's tireless efforts ensured a beautiful and celebration.

Kimberly - cant say enough. She goes so far beyond her title of wedding coordinator. She was always available and able to listen, suggest, and organize. She spoke softly and soothingly, was quick with a smile, calmed nerves and no detail escaped her. It is easy to see that Kimberly loves what she does. She works very hard and makes it all seem effortless. Kimberly's presence doesn't end with the night of the wedding. She helped pack up and store items and still keeps in touch.

Gustavo is a maitre d' extraordinaire. He was always present and in charge. There was norequest that he couldn't handle. Gustavo was always on top and ahead of any situation which might need his attention. He was truly hiding in plain sight and a master of multitasking Gustavo is yet another individual whomismat the top of his game and love what he does.

Finally, the grounds are fabulous and the food was incredibly delicious. Our family and friends cannot stop talking about all of it. Special requests (vegetarian and gluten free) were no problem. Gustavo even found some gluten free desserts for several guests. Not only was the dinner wonderful, the wine pairings were perfect and the portions quite plentiful. The desserts were a delightfully sweet ending to a fairy tale wedding celebration.

Thank you to everyone at Crabtree Kittle House.

My husband and I were married at the Crabtree Kittlehouse in August of 2014. When we first drove up the winding driveway and saw the Kittlehouse for the first time we fell a little bit in love with it. Once we started seeing the gardens and outdoor areas we had an idea that this would be the place for us.

Our number one concern was food for our guests. We hated the idea of a factory wedding in a large catering hall with mediocre food. We wanted good food and we wanted to know every single person that came and sat down to celebrate with us. And Kittle House made that happen. There food was so good and they were very accommodating. We needed to have some gluten free and vegetarian options and there was no problem. They even created a gelato bar for us and even set up their fire pit so we could do our s'mores favors.

Kimberly Ann is the wedding coordinator and she was with us every step of the way. She answered every email we ever sent (and there were HUNDREDS over a 2 year period) and she would even send us little ideas here and there that she thought we would like. Gustavo is the maitre d' and he was there to help us during the night of the wedding. Separate, these two are amazing but together they are a powerhouse team. They know exactly what they are doing and they make it so that on your wedding day you don't have to worry about anything.

Even hours before our wedding, it started pouring and of course I was worried. I had my heart set on an outdoor wedding so Gustavo waited until 15 minutes before the wedding to move everything inside. And the ceremony turned out amazing anyway. With the rain coming down the side of the glass windows, it looked magical. And the rain cleared up in time to have guests wander outside and have our fire pit.

My husband and I could not be happier that we had our wedding at the kittle house. They really are a wonderful place that makes each event special. The whole place is a dream and we are so happy that we went with our gut and had our wedding there.

Thank you Kimberly Ann and Gustavo! AKA the dream team!

Great Wedding Venue posted 10/17/2014

Crabtree's Kittle House was an excellent choice for our daughter's wedding. The facility is beautiful. The food, wonderful. Kimberly Ann graciously helped guide us through all the arrangements and the event went flawlessly. She was a pleasure to work with and made us feel like family. John Crabtree went above and beyond to make certain we were all happy. Gustavo was on top of everything that day, orchestrating a wonderful day for all of us. Everyone enjoyed themselves. I would certainly recommend the Crabtree's Kittle House to anyone looking for terrific venue for their wedding day in the Hudson Valley.

Spectacular Experience! posted 10/17/2014

Our experience at the Kittle House was absolutely wonderful! On top of being an undeniably unique and beautiful location, the food was delicious, and the overall experience we had working with Kimberly was just fantastic. She was incredibly kind, attentive, and enthusiastic from day one, and made what can be a very stressful process feel calm and relaxed. On the day of the wedding, she even sat on the floor with my mother to figure out the ridiculously complex bustle of my dress!! People always say you can't have a perfect wedding... In our case they were wrong! This is so much because of the amazing Kittle House staff. The night of the wedding, in addition to having Kimberly on deck, we also had the unbelievably diligent maitre d', Gustavo. If you want a truly special venue where you know you'll be 100% taken care of, the Kittle House is your best option by far.

We had a gorgeous wedding at the Kittle House over labor day weekend. Kimberly, the events manager, was truly the kindest, most thoughtful, most helpful hostess we could ever imagine. She suggested excellent local vendors, and set up several private tastings for us to experience the incredibly delicate, delicious menu. The food at our wedding was spectacular, the outdoor garden couldn't have been more beautiful for our ceremony, and the glass-enclosed reception hall was a magical place to dance the night away. We were extremely happy that we chose this venue--THANK YOU KITTLE HOUSE!!!

Where to start? Our wedding reception was perfect in every way because we had it at the Kittle House.

Kimberly Ann, Barbara, Gustavo, Leo, John Crabtree and the entire team are the classiest, hardest working people I have worked with in a long time. Kimberly Ann went so above and beyond her role as event coordinator - she was at times a trusted advisor and kindred spirit. It is great to work with someone who truly loves what she does, and it shows in every action and conversation.

We went to see a LOT of venues but when we went to the Kittle House, we got "that" feeling - that these were the people we could trust with our special day. The food and wine was outstanding and the service was spectacular. But it goes beyond that. Kimberly Ann was really our wedding coordinator, emailing me with suggestions on cute details for the tables, reminders about items I may have forgotten about (and I had). The list goes on and on.

I still email her from time to time because I miss her. :)

Our guests are still talking about how our wedding was the most beautiful experience they've been to in awhile. Every detail was attended to. We showed up and just had fun because we trusted the Kittle House to do what they do. And they over-delivered on everything.

I've been singing their praises ever since, telling my engaged friends and anyone who will listen. These people are the best!!!

I can not say enough wonderful things about the staff, decor, food, and overall venue that is Crabtree's Kittle House. I got married there on July 19, 2014 and it was the most perfect day. The staff at the Kittle House went above and beyond to ensure that my day was everything I imagined. Our wedding was large, with 175 guests, and we received so many compliments on the space. Our guests loved the cocktail hour food and space. We were able to use the bar and side patio, and guests enjoyed having an indoor/ outdoor option. The Kittle House graciously provided us with an Inn room for the night before and the night of the wedding. I used the room to get read with my bridal party and it made an amazing back drop for pictures. The staff was friendly and welcoming for the entire weekend. They made every guest feel taken care of. We still are getting compliments about the food! My wedding coordinator, Tiffany, went above and beyond for me. I had many particular touches and vintage finds I wanted to incorporate into my special day. I spent a lot of time during my engagement creating little DIY decor items. Tiffany made sure everything was set up perfectly, and really made my vision come to life. She made me feel like I was in great hands and left me nothing to worry about so I could enjoy my day. I can not say enough nice things about this venue and it's staff. Thank you to the Kittle House for making my wedding dreams come true!

Amazing summer wedding posted 8/9/2014 (modified 8/9/2014)

Kittle House was the perfect choice for our wedding. After a full day of looking at multiple venues Kittle House was the last one on the list. When we arrived we were greeted by Barbara and she let us walk around freely to see the place for ourselves. It was a breath of fresh air to not feel any pressure as we looked around. Once we did we could see why there was no sales pitch as the venue was absolutely gorgeous and did all the talking on its own. The fact that it was a restaurant first made me confident the food would be great as well. After this visit we had that feeling that this would be the place where we would get married and booked it immediately.

Throughout the planning Barbara was very prompt with her responses and answered any and all questions I would have. She made me feel she had everything under control and it was a true pleasure working with her. They also made us feel very important and that our needs were of highest priority. It was impressive to see that kind of service to a place I can safely assume is booked solid throughout the year. Food tastings were a pleasure, again treated like VIPs. I appreciated the fact that they threw in some extra appetizers outside of our choices because it ultimately led us to choose them for our wedding. All the food is very tasty and is very high quality.

Day of the wedding I'll just sum up with one word, perfect. Everyone just seemed on top of their game. My biggest concern was the threat of rain, and Gustavo made sure to show me the exact plan if that did in fact happen and what would be done. Gustavo and Barbara also made sure my guests and I were taken care of before the wedding started, even gave me a beer to help calm me down. The reception hall itself far exceeded my expectations, props to my planner and florist. We were blessed with the perfect weather for our ceremony and the Kittle House sure made it evident. Cocktail hour was setup directly next to the ceremony area, but it was far enough that it didn't seem cramped. The view of the golf course behind was a beautiful touch, my guests couldn't stop telling me how much they loved the view from their rooms. Service throughout the wedding was great, all our wishes were fulfilled. There was a small hitch with timing between surprise serenades and food, but Gustavo gave me zero problems when I requested the food be put on halt for a few minutes. All my guests loved the food, portabello mushroom with palenta was a clear winner for appetizer choice. The main courses went very well, everyone who got the trout enjoyed it and same went for those who chose steak. I must say one of the best parts was the ice cream bar outside, and I can't thank Barbara enough for having that suggestion and option. After the wedding was over there were guests who wanted to stick around and Leo made sure we were accommodated late into the night. All in all the staff, in my opinion, went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and taken care of. My wife and I can't wait to go back for our 1 year anniversary!

Venue was PERFECTION! posted 8/7/2014

My husband and I just got married on July 5th and Kimberly was there every step of the way to ensure our day was PERFECT! Kimberly and I exchanged multiple correspondence in the months leading up to the wedding and she was a tremendous help!

We had an outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour in the lovely garden and then a beautiful night in the atrium room, but still allowed guests to enjoy the beautiful night outside. The whole night was absolutely amazing, from the impeccable service and outstanding menu and food!! Your guests will not be disappointed!! We received many messages saying, "that was the best wedding we have ever been to."

We highly recommend having your wedding at Crabtree's Kittle House!!

Beautiful & Charming, Wedding of my dreams posted 11/11/2013 (modified 11/12/2013)

Such a magical experience having our wedding at Crabtree's Kittle House. Everything was so wonderful. The food was delicious, the service was wonderful, and the assistance you receive..omg! Kimberly & Gustavo were absolutely amazing. Responding to emails all year and the day of, Gustavo was so spot on. He was constantly there to help with anything I needed, and made the whole thing so seamless.
I can't wait to go back for our anniversary! The Inn is also beautiful! Our room to get ready in (2J) was magnificent! Huge and perfect for all of us to get ready in. We got married October 25 and the foliage in that area was spectacular. They really keep the grounds beautiful.

Crabtree's Kittle House posted 9/21/2013

Crabtree's Kittle House is a true gem! We worked primarily with Kimberly Ann in planning the wedding and reception for our daughter's wedding in Chappaqua, N.Y. She is outstanding in her role, extremely knowledgeable, yet also flexible, calming and reassuring in listening and making suggestions to make everything perfect for the wedding day! The setting is spectacular, the entire staff provides excellent service, and the cuisine, from the hors d'oeuvres to dinner through dessert, was fabulous! We couldn't have been happier with our experience with the Kittle House!

The service at the Kittle House is wonderful! From the first time we went to see the venue, the staff are incredibly attentive. We worked with Kim who was always responsive to our emails and always a pleasure to meet with. She helped us think through the details, the timing, etc. The Kittle House has a reputation for great food, and every time we've eaten there we've been thoroughly impressed. I would say though that on our actual wedding day, the food fell a little bit short. The pasta dish that they served wasn't the one that we had originally picked, and the salmon was a bit over cooked and under-sauced. But besides these small details, the venue was beautiful and perfect for the wedding we wanted, and the service was really great!

Beautiful & Delicious! posted 9/16/2013

When my husband and I got engaged we didn't know too much about wedding planning but we did know that we did NOT want banquet wedding food. We searched countless venues in the area and while they were all beautiful, Crabtree's Kittle House was the perfect fit for us. The entire staff went above and beyond to help us coordinate our day and execute a memorable and exquisite day.

I can't thank the Sales team for their creative suggestions and the chef's willingness to customize our menu to fit our personalities. Every interaction from our initial meeting, tasting, menu selection & actual wedding day exceeded our expectations and I would 1000% recommend the beautiful venue and professional staff to everyone and anyone for their special day. A special thanks to Gustavo for helping to coordinate our large bridal party, we couldn't have done it without you!!!

My husband Mike & I married here on May 25, 2013. We planned the wedding from a distance and everything went very well. The wedding coordinator Kimberly was wonderful to work with and all of our requests were honored. She was receptive to our ideas and had a wealth of suggestions. The day of our wedding all went without a hitch! We had a terrific day, the food was great and our guests were very happy!

Crabtree's Kittle House met or exceeded every expectation that I had for my wedding day.
They made my planning effortless. I met with Kimberly and she guided me through the menu planning. She was so nice and helpful and really listened to what I needed. She was constantly in touch and never seemed confused about anything that we had talked about. She made me feel like mine was the only wedding that she had coming up.
On the day of the event, everything flowed wonderfully. The Kittle House did a great job of coordinating with our vendors. We didn't really have to worry about them at all. The waitstaff were amazing and Gustavo did a great job keeping the flow of the evening going. The food was DELICIOUS and ABUNDANT.
We got excellent feedback from our guests. Everyone had a great time.
This place is AMAZING and beautiful. If you choose the Kittle House you will have no regrets. It is an excellent value.
