“This is the wedding to end all weddings!” “This is the best wedding I’ve ever been to!” “I can’t even get married now after going to this wedding because there’s no way to compete with this!” These are just a few of the compliments my husband and I received from our guests during our May 19 wedding at Mountain View Manor in Glen Spey, NY. If you select MVM as your wedding venue, you and your guests will feel like you are having an elaborate party at your family’s private country estate. Whisk your guests away for a weekend of serenity and fun. The food is fresh and delicious, the venue is beautiful, and the service is beyond accommodating. You will enjoy crystal glassware, premium beer on tap, and endless gorgeous backdrops for your wedding photos. Your guests do not want to go to a “wedding factory,” nor do they want to have to worry about driving from place to place during your wedding day. Give them a mini-vacation close to home where your ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, after party, and overnight accommodations are all in the same place. The spacious MVM has separate areas for all of these components to keep your guests interested and amazed. I sincerely recommend the MVM to even the most discriminating brides and grooms without the slightest reservation.

My wife and I would highly recommend Mountain View Manor for a wedding celebration/destination! Orest in the office, James, the wedding planner, Tim the chef, and the other recommended vendors (flowers, music) all did an outstanding job. We had 120 guests, all of whom were extremely complimentary of the grounds which were immaculately groomed, the beautiful mansion in which the celebration was held, and the expertise in which the station wedding was presented. The wait staff was plentiful and extremely polite. Not one person had a negative comment about any of the celebration from start to finish. The overnight accommodations were beautiful and extremely clean, and the brunch that followed the next morning was outstanding and plentiful. The after hours party capped a wonderful event, and allowed us to mingle with our guests casually after the four hour celebration. Many guests commented that they can't recall such an outstanding event from start to finish; all made possible by the owners and courteous staff at Mountain View Manor.

After planning our wedding for more than 18 months, we were extremely nervous. That day September 16th 2012 the weather was a perfect 72 degrees. I arrived after my wife to find the leaves changing colors. The scenery was perfect with the manors breathtaking views and rolling hills. I met with James the Manors exclusive Wedding Coordinator who I thought was heaven sent by the end of the night. The ceromy was so beautiful. Having it outside was spectacular!!!. The rest of the day was like a perfect dream that would never end. The DJ Ralph from Hot Traxx Entertainment spun a party ou wouldn't believe.Tim the Manors exclusive Chef cooked up a dinner that had my guest asking for more. There is no catered food here!! Tim cooks everything fresh at that moment. I recommend the stuffed filet of sole with crabmeat. Delicious!!!!. I'm not done yet!!!. My cake lady Elie. We love you. Your lemon cake with fresh raspberries is the best. Susan the flower coordinator!!!. Her flowers were just perfect. We met with her and weren't to sure of what exactly we wanted. We knew we wanted a fall theme. She assured us not to worry. Those center pieces and everything else was just perfect. The great thing about the Manor was that all of its vendors are exclusive to the manor. We didnt have to go crazy searching for anyone. They were all so nice and proffessional. By the end of the wedding, I think just about everyone of my guest told me that this was the best wedding they had attended. I can't forget Orest the manager. You are a true proffessional. Thank You for making our wedding the most wonderful and unforgettable day of our lives. We never imagined it would be that PERFECT!!!!

The reviews you read about MountainView Manor sound too good to be true, but this place is seriously awesome. Want an outdoor ceremony? Ok. Indoor? Fine. Smaller reception hall? Bigger reception hall? Both are available. There are rooms upstairs for your guests to stay over. The bridal suite is beautiful. The people who run the place are very professional but also make sure you give you tons of personalized attention. The Mansion only has one wedding a week, so you won't feel like your wedding is just a mass-produced party to be copied the following day. The recommended vendors are recommended for a reason. They rule. DJ Flow, Ellie with Elliegant Cakes, Breanne Frost with Frost Photography and of course J-Angelo event planning all made our wedding day the best day of my life (seriously). There were no complaints from any guests, and certainly not from us! I can't wait to go to another wedding at the Mansion.

I can not recommend Mountain View Manor enough. I was married in the "garden" area of the mansion on May 26th. Both my cocktail hour and reception were held there as well. This was the first wedding in my family to be held all in one spot and I couldn't have been thanked enough about that decision! Everything flowed so smoothly from one segment of our day to the next, all thanks to the amazing staff at the mansion. I wanted our wedding to feel nothing but romantic, and that was exactly what I got. MVM has the most amazing vendors that they work with and Sue from Floral Cottage went above and BEYOND with my flowers. It felt and looked like I was married in the Secret Garden. The flowers continued into the "lobby" of the mansion, there were flowers on every mantle, in every room (even our guests rooms) and of course on the gorgeous table scapes made by James of J-Angelo event planning. James is another amazing asset to the Mansion, he is the glue to everything running so smoothly. The food is A-MAZ-ING. The chef, Tim, is a gift from culinary heaven. My guests are still talking about the food!! And lets not forget the dessert. Not only did I have the most amazing wedding cake from Ellie of Elli-gant Cakes (Three different flavors might I add) but we also had an ice cream sundae bar that my guests raved over! My guests and I danced all night, my husband even got into it!! There was just no helping it, Ralph-DJ Flow, really knew how to get everyone moving. Any vendor that Orest suggested to us we went with. He is so tentative to the details and picky about who works at his venue that I completely trusted anything that he had to say and I do not regret that decision at all! Even down to our photographer, Christina of Zen Photography. CAN NOTTT recommend her enough!! We had the most amazing wedding day and it's all thanks to everyone at Mountain View Manor!
