Gramercy is a beautiful place and very unique! The staff was nice and breakfast was great! They accommodate to those who do not eat gluten which was amazing!

Perfect! posted 2/24/2013

The staff were very helpful. Perfect venue for our summer outdoor intimate wedding. With the natural surrounding of greenery and flowers in the summer, there is no need to over decorate.

Beautiful Wedding Venue! posted 7/9/2012

Gramercy Mansion was the perfect venue for our June wedding. They are continuously improving the gardens, which are amazing! Great place for pictures as well. If you book the first wedding in a day (sometime there are two), then you get to pick the caterer off of a list of like 10 which is plenty. I would recommend it to anyone!

beautiful indoor and outdoor posted 6/12/2012

I had my wedding at the mansion and it was wonderful. All of my guests were so impressed with the beauty and historic style of the mansion. Our wedding was planned to be outside in their gardens but it rained so we got married on the terrace which had hangning plants and was open walls so we still got the outside feel with no wet heads. Overall a wonderful place

This place is amazing! From the lighting and hardwood floors to the well maintained gardens it makes for the perfect day! We stayed in the B&B and had an amazing and romantic night and breakfast who could ask for more. Even if you stay for a weekend or have your wedding here its a great place. Thanks Keith and Jamie Holland

Like a Fairytale posted 11/17/2011

I knew I wanted to get married at the Gramercy the second I saw the picture online. It was a beautiful place, you couldn't ask for better scenery. Our ceremony was in the garden and our pictures were just stunning with the gorgeous backdrops. We also got the Blue Garden Suite for all the ladies to get ready in. The place was like a fairytale. I will say that because the Gramercy doesn't provide any services other than the venue, the staff was not always that helpful. They do not have anyone specific that is assigned to you for your wedding and didn't even know who would be on staff the day of my wedding a month prior. We did end up hiring a week of coordinator because I needed someone to direct traffic and make sure everything went off without a hitch on the day of. The other downside is that you have to end your wedding at 11 pm because of the music. Because our ceremony started at 6, I felt like the reception didn't go on long enough (in need of an after party somewhere else). But it was worth it. We went over our budget to book the Gramercy and that too was worth it. We did experience some bugs -- two wasps which both stung one of my bridemaids before the ceremony--in the Blue Garden Suite while we were getting ready but I definitely overlooked that as the place is old and it was so beautiful I didnt care that much in the end (not sure how my bridesmaid feels about it though). The list of caterers they make you choose from has a lot of great options. We chose Zeffert and Gold and were very happy with them. Our wedding was only about 100 people (we had expected 130 but were really happy in the end that we only had 100 because the dance floor and eating area would have been tight if we had more). However, there are many ways to set up the space for your needs. The dinner on the terrace was intimate and beautiful and all our guests raved about how beautiful the house and the grounds were. Would do it all over again there in a heartbeat!

Outstanding venue posted 10/25/2011

The comment we received most from guests was--how'd we find this great venue? Beautiful gardens, stress-free inclement weather plan, and quirky/endearing bed and breakfast decor make it a uniquely perfect site for an outdoor wedding. I definitely recommend!

Carriage House posted 10/25/2011

Gramercy was a wonderful venue to work with and we could not have imagine our wedding being more beautiful.
Our officiant, Mr. Bill (the inn-keeper at the Gramercy) was superb. He was always so helpful, and a sure pleasure to deal with. The Gramercy staff- Cristin and Maria also were extremely helpful and friendly.
Gramercy was organized, as advertised and a beautiful place to have such a memorable event. We would definitely recommend!

Disappointment posted 10/1/2011

My wedding at the Gramercy Carriage house was a bit of a disappointment. The mansion had another wedding going the same day, and the bride for that wedding booked my venue for her rehearsal dinner. As a result, Gramercy informed me I would have to come quite early for my rehearsal. When we arrived, they were setting up for the other Bride and were of no assistance to us and acted as if we were placing a burden on them. They cut the grass so short that after a week of rain, the entire ceremony space was mud, it has destroyed the bottom of my dress. The day of the wedding, before I was to walk down the aisle, we made our way over to the mansion to wait under the awning because it was raining. Gramercy informed me I had to move because the other bride was going to be on her way down to get into her limo. After begging to let me stand in one of their offices rather than walk back through the rain, they begrudgingly let us in to a room to wait. In the mean time, my mom had to hunt down someone at the mansion to request towels to dry off the chairs, which my cousins did for me, Gramercy couldn't even be bothered to dry the chairs. When we finally walked down the aisle and were in the middle of the ceremony, several very loud cars with either modified exhaust systems or broken exhaust systems were allowed to drive around the circle of our ceremony site, disrupting the ceremony. When we had made our arrangements with Gramercy, they had assured me that no one would be allowed to drive around that circle during my ceremony. Overall, I do not recommend this site to any bride. The people at Gramercy managed to make me feel like I was a burden to them on my wedding day and like a second class citizen. No bride should have to experience what I did on such a special day. Especially not when I am paying them for their services.

I am so glad we chose this venue...it is pricey, but it is beautiful. We had an outdoor noon ceremony and cocktail hour, with our reception in the terrace on June 4th. The weather was perfect and our guests couldn't stop telling us how beautiful the place was! I love the brick walkway down to the outdoor ceremony site, and the drive to the Mansion is even scenic and beautiful. The inside of the mansion is gorgeous as well- we stayed in the Blue Garden Suite the night before (bridesmaids and I) and loved the suite. There was plenty of room for 3 bridesmaids and I, and we had a nice breakfast there in the morning. Couldn't ask for more!

B&B ceremony & reception posted 6/15/2011

Site was beautiful! I was able to save on my florist costs because of all the natural beauty. There are already flowers surrounding the ceremony site and they have lots of hanging plants on the terrace (reception area). I only needed wedding party flowers and some for the centerpieces/tables.

The rooms are a bit pricey to stay in, but the bride & groom do get a discount. It would have been nice if they did a little extra for the bride & groom's room at the end of the night - like maybe some flowers, rose petals, wine, or something. They do offer that you can "buy" those extras.

We had many guests comment that it was the most beautiful wedding they had been to. The place was perfect and our wedding was breathtaking...I wouldn't have changed a thing.

We love Gramercy posted 5/10/2011

Gramercy Mansion is absolutely beautiful! Out of every venue my wife and I researched online, Gramercy was the best and when we finally went to see it in person, we were sold. The gardens are fantastic and the ceremony sight is so beautiful. We chose the Mansion for our wedding as opposed to the Carriage House (even though we only had 50 guests) because it was just so amazing. The cost is significantly more for the mansion but well worth it, in my opinion. The only thing I would have preferred was a place on site for my wife to get ready prior to the ceremony. If you don't book a room the night before or the day of, you're out of luck unless you want to get ready in the bathroom. Luckily, we wanted to be there the night before so it was no issue. We rented the Blue Garden suite, by the way and we loved it! I would recommend Gramercy highly. The staff was friendly and helpful and made sure we had a wonderful time.

Romantic, Elegant, Fabulous! posted 4/21/2011

We had our ceremony and reception at the Gramercy last week. From the beginning, we loved the location because it was furnished like a cozy, elegant, warm and inviting home. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The bed and breakfast made it the perfect one stop shop - we booked the Cassatt Suite on the lower level the day before our wedding so the bride and bridesmaids could stay there and then it doubled as our wedding night suite. It's just such an elegant, romantic place to have your wedding. Your guests will love it!

You want this location! posted 4/17/2011

When we walked into the Gramercy Mansion, it was like walking into our home. The house and grounds are gorgeous and the staff is very helpful. There is so much to look at you will never stop marveling at the place. It was so lovely. With a lot of out of town guests, we opted to have the ceremony and reception there. The gardens are amazing and the set up for the reception was so sweet. If you book, consider staying the night, the B&B aspect is worth checking out as well.

OK posted 2/4/2011

The location was beautiful, but their customer service needs some improvement. We had several cards (with cash and checks) going missing from the wedding and they didn't care or do any kind of follow up. I realize it could have been anyone who did it, but I expected them to accept some kind of responsibility or at least offer some sympathy. I left some clothes behind after the wedding also (bra and panties) and they wouldnt' mail them to me, only offered to hold them for a few days so I could drive to get them. I think for the 5K we dropped for the rental fee and rooms, etc. they could have washed my clothes and mailed them to me since they knew i lived about 45 minutes from the site.

BEAUTIFUL!!! posted 11/29/2010

the place was gorgeous! we had our ceremony outside on oct. 25th 2010- near sunset. the appetizers were served outside the reception area- and our reception was inside. The only things that are annoying about this place are 1. any more than the 108 ppl we had would have been too cramped- our 12 tables fit nicely 2. they don't have any free "getting ready" room for the bride, you are practically forced to pay for a b&b room which is fine if you are staying the night 3. the owner is not very accomodating, rude, and could care less about your event 4. the rest of the staff aren't very knowledgeable or helpful...they told me for instance that they wouldn't have any ladders available for me to use the night before to hang lanterns, but my friend who was with me went and found FOUR ladders of theirs just sitting there not being used- also if you talk to one of the staff members about something concerning your day, get their name!! cause later they will say "oh you can't do that, who said you could do that?". Also i suggest paying the extra money for Juan (he works at the 1840s ballroom) to help coordinate the rehearsal and the wedding- unless you already have your own wedding planner. He is SOOOO helpful and on the ball and still very calm :-) by the way- we got married on a monday evening and it was half the price!

October 30, 2010 wedding posted 11/17/2010

The people at the mansion were very nice and were willing to answer any questions via telephone or email that I had. Bill was very helpful when we signed the contract and put down our deposit as well. We chose to stay at the mansion the night before our wedding and the night of our wedding. The breakfast was excellent in the mornings. Many of our guests at the wedding complimented how lovely the gardens were, and how great the mansion was.

My wedding posted 9/11/2010

The grounds of the mansion were absolutely beautiful. My husband and I stayed that night and felt all though the room was beautiful,it was not stocked well. No towels, wash cloths. Mini bar was empty not even water. That part was disappointing.
