Ashokan Dreams was THE perfect place to have our wedding. Not only were the views picturesque, but the b&b was great for the bridal party of 18. When looking for a place to host our Catskills wedding, we quickly made the decision to have it at Ashokan Dreams not only for the accommodations and view but because we knew working with Anne Marie and Chet was exactly what we needed and wanted when planning our wedding. We live in NYC and through the process, they provided strong, timely feedback and shared a great list of preferred vendors for our 200 person wedding. They cared just as much as we did to make our special day perfect. In the months and weeks leading up to our wedding, Anne Marie was beyond helpful and accessible when it came to planning, scheduling, and deliveries. Additionally, she provided us with small wedding decorative items onsite such as grounds direction stakes, table card holders a gift card holder and so much more. On the weekend of our wedding, she ran the rehearsal like a boss helping wrangle family and friends to make the process smooth and efficient. When we arrived, all outside vendors were in place, tables were set and we were ready to have a wedding. I didn't have to worry about a thing but marrying the man of my dreams. It still brings the biggest smile to my face thinking of how special that September day was for my husband and I and we couldn't have done it without the exceptional team that we were so lucky to work with at Ashokan Dreams. We can't wait to return for future anniversaries and visit our friends at Ashokan Dreams.
This review is long overdue and I hope it will glow as much as our wedding did at Ashokan Dreams last July! Ashokan Dreams is a magical venue that delivers far beyond your standard set of needs. But make no mistake, what comes standard and expected is phenomenal, too. First, the basics: the venue fee includes the full grounds for a weekend along with the couple's stay in the Reservoir Suite (AMAZING homemade breakfast and view of the Ashokan reservoir and mountain landscape included!). Anne-Marie's services as a site and day-of coordinator are also included. Simply put, she is the BEST. Details do not scare her nor do they ever escape her awareness. If you want someone who will make sure every component you've discussed and others you hadn't thought of are covered, Anne-Marie will make sure of it. Beyond supporting you through the planning process with meetings, emails, calls, and walk-throughs, she is the one who receives all of your rentals, makes sure everything is in order, assembles a staff for your event, and supervises your rehearsal. She knows the wedding vendor world in the region and is always prepared with a recommendation. Anne-Marie is also super thoughtful and warm. There are times that she would come off as somewhat rigid and structured, but this is usually to optimize the space, our time, and to ensure the success of the event. She is very open to your ideas and making them happy. It is always clear that she deeply cares about your event being successful. Ours was perfect in large part because of Anne-Marie and Chet. What you can't capture in a contract is how your money buys you the most incredible views in the Hudson Valley, beautiful and lovingly landscaped grounds, and a super well-designed space. There are gazebos for cute talking corners, open space for setting up games, a pavilion for cocktail mingling, and a firepit overlooking the mountains. No guest feels stuck under a tent. Every guests feels comfortable to engage with the event as you design it! My wife and I really can't tell you how many people told us how in awe they were of the venue. It seemed like everyone's first question after saying congratulations was "how did you find this incredible place??" There's a calm, serene magic captured at this venue; our guests said they felt truly transported from everyday life. I know we did! Ashokan Dreams, Anne-Marie, and Chet have our highest recommendation. We can't wait to come back for an anniversary in the future!

We had the most beautiful wedding day at Ashokan Dreams. Anne-Marie thinks of every detail to make your event a perfect day. The suites are rustic and sweet and clean. The grounds are spectacular with plenty of space for your guests to enjoy the view. It could not have been a more magical place for us to get married and everything about it was lovely.

Ashokan Dreams is a magical majestic beautiful spot for a wedding. It's in the Castkill mountains, overlooking the Ashokan Reservoir. It's a wonderful spot for a wedding!
