My daugher's wedding was at Arrow Park in November. The grounds are just beautiful. Stephanie was a pleasure to work with and extremely helpful since we aren't from the area. Caitlyn was terrific on the day of. I never thought I would be as relaxed as I was. Caitlyn saw to every detail. I truly enjoyed my daugher's wedding. We used Love n Rosemary for the catering of the reception. The food was delicious. The staff was wonderful. We enjoyed the entire weekend. It was so nice not to have to travel for the rehearsal dinner or after the reception. The bridal party got to hang out on Sunday morning. It was a very special weekend. We've gotten many compliments from friends and relatives about how wonderful the wedding was and how unique the venue was.
As a friend of the Bride, and a long time hospitality manager, I would like this opportunity to tell the future couples out there about Arrow Park Lake and Lodge in Monroe NY. For those coming from NYC, and the surrounding areas, it is an amazing property close to home, yet feels like a whole other world. The one of a kind Mansion has 12 bedrooms, a classic library, and a banquet hall with adjoining sun porch with breathtaking views of Arrow Park. For Weddings of 100 or less, this is a most special venue.For larger events, the newly renovated Pavillion/Hall can host up to 200, with polished wooden floors, bistro lights and its own elevated stage. I have had the opportunity to Coordinate several weddings at Arrow Park, each with its own unique twist made possible by the many attributes of this beautiful property. There is a lovely lake/beach area often used for ceremonies, and later for after party bonfires. There is also a beautiful landscaped garden often used for ceremonies and cocktail hour. When it comes to dining, although you have the choice to contract any outside caterer, their in house caterer, Love and Rosemary, is not only an amazing choice for presentation and palate, but economically as well. From the Grounds to the food to the staff, Arrow Park is a wonderful choice and one I am always happy to recommend. Sandra O'Connell
How do I even start to describe our experience at arrow park? Stephanie was the first person I had contact with at arrow park and was mainly my contact for the duration of the wedding planning. Stephanie is great! She was super helpful and responded to all of my emails very quickly. Towards the end of the wedding I started emailing with Beth, who is the maitre'd. She is also wonderful! The day of the wedding we arrived with SO much stuff. Decorations, flowers, everything .. Beth put it all together for me. I had no idea anyone was going to do that for me so at first I was a little concerned because I'm so used to doing everything myself. Let me tell you, she put everything together exactly how I would have, but better. She knew exactly what I wanted without me even having to say so. Every one of their staff members are fantastic. On to the venue - weddings go by fast, so fast. I'm so glad we had the chance to make it like a weekend event by renting out the lodge and having brunch the next morning. It truly is a beautiful place that's worth every penny. I hated planning my wedding, it was SO stressful at times. But I loved every minute at arrow park, and would honestly do it all over again because it was just such a beautiful and unforgettable day. Everyone keeps telling me how much of a great time they had. And it was even more amazing that the day after the wedding the families still got to hang out! Everyone doesn't have a chance to get together like that so it really was just a wonderful thing to be able to wake up the day after our wedding and rehash the previous day's events over brunch with your family. If you want a beautiful venue with a fantastic staff then absolutely book Arrow Park, it's guaranteed to be an unforgettable day.
My husband and I had our wedding at Arrow Park in September of this year. We heard about the venue through word of mouth and when we arrived for our tour we knew this was the ideal place to have our wedding. The mansion is gorgeous and is only rivaled by the grounds themselves, complete with wooded trails and a beautiful lake. We were able to rent the venue from Friday to Sunday for our wedding, which made the experience especially unique. We were able to host our entire wedding party (over 25 people!) including our parents at the mansion and accompanying bungalow cabins. The staff at Arrow Park made us feel right at home and were able to accommodate every request we had. I strongly recommend the bonfire afterparty, it was definitely a hit with our guests! If you are looking for a once in a life time wedding venue, Arrow Park is a must.
My husband and I cannot begin to describe how incredible our wedding experience was at Arrow Park. The historic mansion is not only beautiful in itself but the amazing staff allows each bride & groom to transform the venue into the wedding of their dreams! Billy & I knew from the beginning that we did not want the standard ballroom wedding, so as soon as we pulled down the private driveway lined with gorgeous trees, we knew Arrow Park was going to be the place for us! The lake views from the mansion are fantastic and the property in the middle of the woods is a photographers dream! Arrow Park recommended Mariana Feely, and I’m so glad they did because she knew every piece of the grounds and took incredible photos! (I will be sure to give a more fulsome review of her incredible work separately!) To begin the process with Arrow Park, we first sat down with Stephanie (who is amazing!) to handle all of the initial organization aspects. Her tremendous amount of industry experience allows her to be a great resource and she can answer any questions that you have. Her responsiveness and ability to problem solve allows even the most stressed out bride/groom to relax and just be excited for the big day! On the day of the wedding, we also had an entire team of employees from Arrow Park (including Kaitlin, Richard & Jack) who literally made sure that Billy & I did not have to worry about anything. From keeping our bridal party together for pictures (so we wouldn’t lose them), to bringing us our specialty cocktail (even if we only had a second to take a sip) and also sneaking us away for a minute to make sure we were able to enjoy some of our delicious hors d'oeuvres, - the service from the entire group was truly astounding. We also used Love + Rosemary to cater the event (recommended by Arrow Park), and it was the best decision we could have ever made. Not only was the food incredible (our guests said it was the best and most filling wedding they’ve ever been to), but the attention and service was way beyond our expectations. Lenore and Rocco personally checked on every guest to make sure they had exactly what they needed and that the meals were prepared to their liking. Many people will tell you that as the bride & groom you typically don’t get to eat much on your wedding day, but Love + Rosemary made sure that Billy & I both were both able to enjoy every last bite! (And we sure did!) We then chose to end our night with a bonfire by the lake (which turned out to be the highlight of the evening). Jack, Pam & David were so accommodating and attentive. Our closest family and friends (about 40 people), were able to relax and enjoy the brisk autumn night by the fire and catch up on the amazing day. We then all stayed overnight on property in Arrow Park’s beautiful accommodations which really allowed us to enjoy more than the usual 5 hour event, and truly make the wedding a weekend celebration. The next morning we were even able to have a delicious brunch (hosted again by Love + Rosemary), which was the perfect ending to our big day. We are so appreciative to all of the staff members at Arrow Park & Love + Rosemary, and cannot thank you enough for making our wedding the best day of our lives. If anyone is thinking about hosting an event at Arrow Park, Billy & I highly recommend it – you will not be disappointed!
Our September wedding at Arrow Park was amazing! Our guests loved the beauty of the grounds. Working with Stephanie was so easy ! The whole staff was wonderful the day of. They where also very acomendating with our handicap guests. Also go with Rocco (Love and Rosemary) their preferred caterer for the food. He is Amazing!
We were married here in August and rented the property for the entire weekend. I want to emphasize that our actual wedding day was so incredible! The entire weekend was more than I could have imagined and I still can't believe nothing went wrong. There were so many moving parts to be managed (props to our DOC, Alicia & Jack!). The forecast said rain and a Plan B was ready, but we ended up with perfect weather. We did a Friday night bonfire after our rehearsal dinner and they kept the fire going and the s'mores bar open much later than we thought they would! Our friends loved it. They also set up a canoe for us to go on the water and get some of the most amazing wedding photos. After the reception, we had access to leftovers in the kitchen and were able to hang out in the mansion and drink whatever beer/wine/liquor was left. Sunday breakfast was also really delicious - I highly recommend opting for the omelette bar! In most respects it feels like we got our money's worth. I dock 1 star because I did not enjoy the catering experience. They have an exclusive in house caterer that I did not feel was as responsive or helpful as they could have been during the planning process. I had a vision in mind but I also had a budget; I didn't feel like I had any guidance on what I could actually afford and just kind of picked things we had tasted that I knew would be good. It would have been great if we had more than 1 caterer to choose from. At the same time, I am grateful that the caterer was onsite and available all weekend and let us into the kitchen. We stored food in there and always had access to leftovers which I've heard isn't very common at weddings. I also encountered some communication problems. We worked with the property manager for the year leading up to our wedding and 30 days before were put in touch with a coordinator who seemed to have very few of the details we had communicated over the past year. This led to some last minute stress and purchases that I didn't think we would need to make. This was a big deal to me as we live across the country and it wasn't easy to fix things at the last minute. It might be better if couples could speak with the coordinator 60 or 90 days out, and if the coordinator and manager both had the same information on what the venue does and does not supply.
This venue deserves a million stars! My wedding day was more magical than my dreams. The estate is GORGEOUS- the staff is AMAZING- and the food *Love & Rosemary* was beyond. My family rented it out for the weekend & it couldn't have been more perfect.
My fiancé and I had our engagement party here and our wedding is booked for 2019. We love everything about this place! The engagement party was over the top, everyone was so thrilled with the grounds and venue. Love + Rosemary catered it and exceeded every expectation we could of had. Fantastic team. Highly recommend both. Stephanie is so wonderful, helpful, informative and Kaitlyn is awesome! We can't wait for our big day!
We had a Labor Day weekend wedding at Arrow Park and simply cannot imagine having it anywhere else. The view from the mansion is incredible, the grounds are immaculate, the opportunity for pictures is endless, and the staff is attentive and friendly. There's no need to decorate anything at Arrow Park because everything is already so naturally beautiful. Having rented for the weekend, we were able to take in all AP has to offer and spend time with our friends and family. All of our guests raved about how beautiful and interesting it was, and by the time we left we felt like the staff were our friends.
We had our wedding at Arrow Park in August 2015 and it was absolutely magical. We searched for months in Southern NY/Northern NJ for a historic venue with character that was also affordable and were so thrilled to find Arrow Park. The setting of this historic Italianate villa built in 1909 (former country estate of a prominent NYC family) perched high above a lake is absolutely stunning and so picturesque. You are immediately transported to another time and place when you are there. Stephanie Stack, Elsie Brechbiel, and coordinator Beth were such a pleasure to work with and so helpful before, during, and even after the event (when I left my wedding dress there by accident!). We also have them to thank for referring us to our amazing caterer Rocco. If you are looking for a wedding venue with tons of rustic and historic character that is the absolute opposite of a cookie-cutter venue, then Arrow Park is for you! The mansion and grounds are so beautiful that your pictures will be stunning no matter what. Also being able to stay at the mansion with our wedding party was fantastic and there was just enough space for everyone. One thing to be aware of is that if your event is larger than 75 people you will need to use their pavilion space for dinner/dancing, which is a great space but it was very plain and bare to start with and needed a lot of decor to make it look the way we wanted it to, which ended up being a ton of work because we did a lot of it ourselves with plants, flowers, drapery, lights etc. so if you are going to use this space keep that in mind (unless they have made changes since 2015). The mansion is absolutely gorgeous and needs barely (if any) any decor. We highly recommend Arrow Park and their wonderful staff for any event and we are so thankful to them for making the wedding of our dreams a reality!
I had my wedding at Arrow Park in June and it turned out better than I could've have possibly imagined. The mansion and the grounds are simply beautiful and it offers a unique and intimate event space. We wanted something that would reflect our personality and Arrow Park fulfilled everything I could have hoped for. My guests are still talking about how amazing it was. The staff were so helpful throughout the planning process. I cannot express just how truly special it was.
Arrow Park exceeded our expectations as a wedding venue. Stephanie was always so prompt in her responses and Kaitlyn, our day of coordinator, was a dream to work with. She brought us champagne to enjoy in our room and made sure we were well fed during cocktail hour by sending us trays of food. She helped the wedding day run so smoothly, even when it started raining right at the end of our outdoor ceremony, and helped make the day as low stress as possible. Furthermore, the venue is gorgeous. All of our guests could not get over how stunning the mansion and grounds were. I will be leaving a separate review for Arrow Park's caterer, Love and Rosemary, but I just had to say we are all obsessed with Rocco and Lenore. They were so kind and helpful throughout the process from making family recipes to catering to our youngest guests. The food was outstanding; all of our guests could not get over how delicious it was. We choose a family style meal and Rocco personally visited each of our guests' tables to make sure they were happy and sent out seconds! We cannot thank everyone at Arrow Park enough for all their help.
Where do I begin?... I had my wedding at Arrow Park this past April and my husband and I could not have made a better choice! From the very beginning, we knew planning a wedding in 10 weeks was going to be stressful, but Stephanie and the staff were incredible. Stephanie immediately set us up with local vendors and recommended loads to choose from. Not to mention, we booked Love and Rosemary as our caterer and were overwhelmingly BLOWN AWAY! Albeit the downpours all morning, Stephanie, Kaitlyn, and Rocco kept the day so easy and effortless. Our guests raved about the Beautiful grounds, the Mansion, and the incredible food. Our overnight accommodations were icing on the cake! The party lasted through the next morning but the memories we created will last FOREVER! Thank you Arrow Park
My husband and I had another venue booked prior to visiting Arrow Park. We both fell in love with beauty and charm and are so happy we switched venues. Arrow Park is truly magical. A gorgeous mansion in the middle of the woods surrounded by so much natural beauty. It is so far from the average catering hall, which is what we loved. Not only is the venue Romantic, vintage, beautiful, and elegant, but the staff is so kind, patient, and attentive. This may sound weird but they are the kind of people you just want to hug. We had our wedding on May 6, 2017. The entire process from booking, planning, to celebrating was so easy. Stephanie was so quick to answer all of my many questions and Kaitlyn coordinated everything so seamlessly. Jack made sure all of our guests staying at the mansion were comfortable and had everything they needed. We did not feel stressed at all on our wedding day and cannot thank them enough! We had the time of our lives and will treasure this memory forever. The Arrow park staff went above and beyond to make our wedding day a dream come true. We highly recommend Arrow Park for your special day, it is truly magical and unforgettable.
What we loved: The venue is stunning. We wanted a green, nature-inspired wedding and the location was perfect for this. The weather was beautiful and had our ceremony outside in a garden area perfect for this type of event. We had our cocktail hour inside the mansion and there was tons of room for our guests to wander and explore. Jack, the person in charge of watching the venue overnight and helping with the event execution, is amazing. He helped our rehearsal dinner run smoothly, took charge of cleanup, drove the guests back and forth in the golf cart, and really just made sure everything was on point. When it turned out we were missing chairs for our ceremony, he took care of it. When we needed our kegs set up for the after party, he was on top of it. We didn't know much about Jack before we got to the venue but, in hindsight, he is probably the best asset this venue has. The rooms and overnight situation is great. We loved being able to stay in the house with friends and family. We also rented the bungalows out for the rest of the wedding party. Staying there the whole weekend made it extra special. What to consider: As with the wedding industry in general, there are tons of extra fees for everything. We got a bonfire one night and that was $500. We were told last minute that there was a $200 fee to have wine served at the tables for dinner ("wine stewarding") even though we were already paying for the bartenders (I guess paying them to walk is extra?. My favorite was the $1,500 catering fee that has since increased to $2,500. We did a tasting with the in house caterer but didn't love the food. So we went rogue and booked a caterer with michelin star street cred and paid the extra fee to the venue. But little did we know that the kitchen in the pavilion actually is missing any usable kitchen equipment. So in addition to paying $1,500 for an outside caterer, we had to pay $1.5K to rent usable kitchen equipment. The kicker: the venue offered to let us rent their in house caterers food truck... for $2.5K. It definitely felt deceptive. Stephanie is very sweet and helpful but it was sometimes difficulty to communicate - our impression is that she has too much on her plate. It seems like she's caught between making the investors happy and pleasing guests, which puts her in a tight spot. We constantly felt like we were being up-charged for things that were silly. The venue offers a maitre d' with the booking. We weren't planning on booking our own day of coordinator but friends convinced us it would be good. Best advice we got. While Kaitlyn was helpful, there were a lot of things that were overlooked (we didn't have enough chairs for our ceremony, we were short a table for our reception, no one cleaned up extra trash in the pavilion). It's possible that she wasn't giving us as much attention because she knew we had other help but we felt like our personal coordinator was much more on top of things. (her info is [email protected], reach out to her if you need help, she's amazing and affordable!)
It's a beautiful place, but there are swastikas across the property. Said since it's a historical ground, they can't remove them. Very upsetting.
I don't have anything negative to say about my experience at Arrow Park. Our wedding day turned out to be more amazing than I could have ever expected. We were getting married in November, and had planned to have the wedding indoors, but when the weather forecast predicted 60 degrees, Arrow Park quickly went to work to move the ceremony outdoors! Working with Stephanie in the beginning was painless, she was quick to respond and answered all of my, many, questions. We worked with Kaitlyn for the day of and she was on top of EVERYTHING. Whatever we needed, she was there to take care of. We used their in-house caterer Love + Rosemary and their team and food was amazing, people are still raving about it. I can honestly say that if anything did go wrong, I didn't know about it and that's a nice feeling to have. I fell in love with the look of the venue when I first found it online and am thrilled that the staff and experience lived up to my expectations.
Arrow Park was exactly what we were looking for, for our wedding!! It was the first venue we saw and we should have stopped there. The grounds and mansion truly speak for themselves. It is a photographers dream. Everyone who attended our wedding is still saying how beautiful it was. Stephanie and Beth who you work with both before and the day of your wedding couldn't be more accommodating. They would respond to your questions right away, were never pushy about anything and honestly tried to help you create the day of your dreams. Beth was also always two steps ahead of me on my wedding day. Whether it was to get me a drink, food or help with decorations, she was handling it before I even asked. I have to say our wedding went off without a hitch and everything we wanted came true. We used Love and Rosemary their in house caterer and I can't say enough great things about Rocco and his team. Furthermore, Arrow Parks' staffing on the day of the wedding were also great. From bartenders to parking attendants, everyone was where they should be, smiling and eager to help out. The staff also packed up some of our unfinished wedding food to have later in the night that they kept in their kitchen. We had a larger wedding, 180 people, which fit well into the newly renovated pavilion however, I would say that is probably their max. It was just enough for tables and a decent size dance floor without feeling confined. Another benefit of Arrow Park is the use of the mansion after the wedding. We were able to have our bridal party and both set of parents stay over to spend even more quality/party time with the ones we love. Arrow park created one of the most gorgeous weddings I could have ever imagined and could not be happier with the results. They are truly top notch!
There is so much I want to say about Arrow Park and how wonderful it was to be married there. The grounds are gorgeous and haunting in autumn with so many opportunities to take unique photos. The mansion as well has tons of character we did bare minimum décor for centerpieces. The patio allowed our guests to take pictures with the dramatic landscape and was comfortable for socializing during cocktail hour. The view from the dining room in the house was insane watching the sunset while we sat down to eat. Once it was well into the evening the lighting was cozy and intimate. Arrow Park’s staff, Stephanie and Merry, were great to work with, very flexible with any thing that came up and were super helpful with suggestions. Our wedding day was perfectly chill and laid back just how we wanted it. Thank you!
Thanks to the charming venue and a staff that was a pleasure to work with, both our wedding ceremony and reception at Arrow Park were everything we wanted and more. We fell in love with the cozy, rustic lodge and the gorgeous and expansive outdoor grounds on our very first visit, and the size of the mansion was perfect for our small (50 guests) outdoor wedding and intimate indoor reception. Thanks to the complimentary overnight rooms, a number of our guests were able to celebrate with us late into the night and enjoy breakfast, courtesy of our caterer, the next morning. Our initial contact, Stephanie, assured us that we would also be able to use their pavilion building to accommodate a larger group if we wanted, although we did end up keeping our guest list small. Speaking of Stephanie, the staff at Arrow Park were just as phenomenal as the scenic venue. We were in contact with her and Beth every step of the way, and they were more than happy to work with us to plan all of the details, large and small. Their experience with prior events at the mansion was invaluable in making the ceremony and reception go off without the slightest hiccup. It really was like having extra wedding planners on our side. I can't recommend Arrow Park enough to prospective wedding parties, or even just for social events in general. You're getting gorgeous scenery and an intimate lodge, staff who are eager to help and wonderful to work with, and the recommended vendors are all the best in their class and extremely familiar with the venue. Find some time to visit, and you won't have trouble falling in love with it like we did.
Arrow Park is such a unique and timeless location for a wedding! The architecture and landscaping are stunning and the perfect backdrop for an outdoor/indoor wedding. We had our ceremony outside in the beautiful gardens and inside the lodge. We had 70 guests which was just the right size to fit inside of the lodge instead of the pavilion. Our entire wedding party and close family were able to stay in the rooms in the lodge. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Having the house the whole night is such a great perk to having your wedding at Arrow Park. You don't have to rush your guests out or gather all of your belongings at the end of your wedding, when you are completely exhausted! In the morning we were able to sit out on the patio overlooking the lake and have breakfast with our friends and family. Our wedding was July 24th and it was 93 degrees. The lodge was extremely hot. Most of our guests were up and dancing anyway, but it could have been a hindrance to some. Aside from that, we will never forget the perfect setting that we picked for the most unforgettable day of our life! I absolutely recommend Arrow Park for a wedding or special event!
My husband and I had our wedding at Arrow Park on 8/27/2016 and it was everything I could of dreamed of and more. I had went to Arrow Park sometime around 12 years ago in my first photography course and took a beautiful picture of the tree lined drive way. When I first decided to look at Arrow Park as a venue, I fell in love with how beautiful and rustic the gardens and mansion was, it was the perfect place for my outdoor summer wedding. We had our wedding ceremony in the garden and our reception in the pavilion, and everything looked amazing. Stephanie was amazing and answered all our questions and made feel sure in our decision. Beth helped us the week leading up to the wedding and the day of, she ws pleasant and entrusted and was happy to help with everything so I wouldn't have to worry. Rocco, the preferred vendor for catering made an amazing dinner for my guest. At the end of the day, our wedding was perfect and it is in large part because it was at Arrow Park.
0.5 Don't! One corridor had an "off and on" power failure before even half of our guests were in the rooms, and the representative tried to "blame" it on the use of curling irons and A/C. It was 92 degrees and humid that day, so they obviously are not prepared to service an event in the hot weather. The doorknob in my room fell off into my hand and the door was warped and did not completely close. They did have a man replace it, but the door still did not shut. The main dining room had insufficient portable a/c., causing us to close off part of the party area, and it was sweltering. The "sweetheart" table for the bride and groom collapsed when they were just starting to eat their dinner. We had to search for toilet tissue and hand soap for many of the guest bathrooms. The one I shared had a window that did NOT open (without any ventilation), the cold water faucet did not flow, and the bathtub became a wading pool, complete with a cheap shower curtain. The cottages rented were not even ready when the guests arrived, windows nailed shut, not aired out even though we had arranged for an earlier check in previously with the event planner. The bonfire at the beach was a huge mistake!. The path to the beach was inadequately lit and unsafe and the bathrooms were NOT working. The bonfire was made of about three small logs and we were told they didn't have any more wood. It was as if no one expected a wedding that day. We did get a tiny rebate to reimburse the guests that left to book a local hotel room, and a gift certificate for a dinner to the bride and groom,(a month later), but too little - too late.

Arrow Park is incredibly special. As a wedding venue we could not have asked for anything better. And better then the overall beauty that this place holds, Stephanie&Elsie are amazing to work with. From the moment we met Stephanie she was so kind, knowledgeable and has an overall calmness about her that is so nice to have around while planning a wedding. As soon as she took us around the grounds, we knew that Arrow Park was where we should be married. There are so many different areas of this property- the fun and beautiful lake, the breathtaking garden and the wonderfully maintained integrity of the original mansion. I feel honored to have been married here. Beyond the overall beauty and uniqueness of this property- the staff is great. Stephanie was the main contact that I dealt with for over a year of planning and she just got closer and closer to us. Not only did she never tire of my 20 random questions in a email on a Saturday, or asking to walk around the grounds for the 7th time just because I loved being there so much, she encouraged it! Stephanie wants you to be as comfortable in this space as everyone that has worked there. Stephanie made the whole process so easy and is also a great resource for advice- be it on local vendors or on day before decorating, no question is too small or too big for her.. she is really a lovely person. All in all - our wedding was perfect, getting ready in the mansion, the ceremony in the garden, cocktail hour in the mansion and then we used a tent for the reception. We also had a late night bonfire (offered by the friendly staff at Arrow Park) and were able to use the mansion the next day for brunch. Arrow Park exceeded our expectations and we could not be happier. Elsie&Stephanie were also very accommodating for special requests we had:) We have been married for 6 weeks now and still hear daily about how beautiful Arrow Park was. Thank you Stephanie & all of Arrow Park for making this day what is was, exceptional.
