About Us

History and elegance come together at the Chateau at Coindre Hall. The property features an 80,000 square foot medieval-style mansion that has 40 rooms, a circular stairway, six fireplaces and an indoor courtyard. The bold architecture provides various opportunities for elegant photographs.

While some wedding and reception venues confine you to one spot, you’ll be able to use multiple rooms at Chateau at Coindre Hall. Consider holding the ceremony on the front lawn, surrounded by lush gardens. Then, move to the brick terrace or main foyer for a cocktail hour and finish with a meal and dancing in the Grand Ballroom.

Outdoor ceremonies and indoor receptions both hold up to 200 guests while indoor ceremonies accommodate up to 160 guests. Outdoor receptions aren’t available.


What You Should Know

You’ll have access to an experienced wedding planner when you hold your wedding or reception at the Chateau at Coindre Hall. The planner has a list of approved vendors who help with everything from invitations to live music. Choose from a four or five-hour reception complete with unlimited premium liquors, butlered hors d’oeuvres, food stations and entrees such as roasted loin of pork and cheddar crusted cod. These and other dishes have a French style with an American flair.

The venue also offers an off-season complete wedding package. The package includes a DJ, photographer, custom wedding cake, limousine and flowers; it is available from November until March. You can set up for your event three hours before it starts; all events must end by 1 a.m. There is a guest minimum for weekend receptions. The minimum for Friday and Sunday is 125 while you must have at least 150 guests in attendance for Saturday receptions.

Due to the unique layout of the mansion, you might have to put the music in one room, while your guests are in another. This typically only happens for events that are close to maximum capacity.


Extra Perks

As a National Historic Landmark, the Chateau at Coindre Hall is attractive to history buffs. Everyone in your party can explore the venue during the wedding and reception so they’ll get their fill of history during your event. Best of all, they won’t have to worry about running into another wedding or reception while they explore since the venue only hosts one wedding at a time.

Also, the Chateau at Coindre Hall is within walking distance of the beach. Stroll down to the beach for additional photos or to enjoy some recreation after the ceremony.

My husband had our wedding reception at Coindre Hall on July 8th. To say our reception was perfect is a huge understatement! It was incredible. The hall looked beautiful. John and his team decorated with all the pictures we had given him. The food and service were incredible.... Read More The drinks were perfect. We had about 150 guests and no one was ever waiting for a drink. My guests danced the entire time. John Schelnke is wonderful!! So helpful and knowledgeable.

We just had our wedding at Coindre hall on Nov. 18 and I have to say John is the man! When you email him with questions, he always answer within a day. We had an unusual request to hang my husband's deer mounts, he happily accepted the challenge and place 2 deer mounts at the... Read More hall. We also made a place card table setting and he was so accommodating to us because we kept running late and he actually waited for us to set that up on Friday night. During the wedding day, he keep checking on us and make sure we eat and have enough time for our guests as we changed clothes 3 times. I'm not sure if it's the most difficult wedding he had, but we would recommend Coindre Hall in a heart beat. Our guests told us all the servers were very attentive and the food was AMAZING! The Chateau Briand was so tasty and the Long Island duck was good as well. My husband loved the salmon. Plenty of drinks without any wait. It was raining that day, so we end up having the wedding indoor, but we really wanted to do the sparklers. John helped us set it up at the end when the rain stopped. Overall, it was a magical night. Thank you John and your wonderful stuffs for all your help.

We loved our wedding at Coindre Hall- it was everything we imagined it would be and better. The Chateau is simply beautiful- a beautiful old mansion- and it feels like your very own, since they only have one event at a time. The setting is perfect for photos, the ceremony, and...

We liked how many choices there were when we were planning the menu and how easy and helpful the staff made things. The maitre'd and staff were flawless. It was a perfect event.

I do not have enough words to describe how magical the setting of Coindre Hall is. It was the only venue my husband and I looked at it. From the moment we had our first meeting, the staff their, Kate and John made us feel special and welcome. To start, if you want an outdoor... Read More wedding on Long Island, this is the place to do it. It does not need ANYTHING. The tree that you get married under and the surrounding area is beautiful. Many of venues have what feel like fake settings, but this was quite and beautiful. From there, the cocktail hours is huge, with an amazing selection of food and enough seats for over 100 people. Your guest get to walk all around the venue, from the atrium garden, to the second floor and seats on the front deck. Then, the introduction - everyone standing and gathered in the ballroom made it so special. The energy that was felt in that room cannot be matched. By having the dancing in a separate area made everyone want to get up and dance! And the older people loved that they could sit and hear each other talk. There are so many amazing places for photos as well. John - the maitre d - is like no other person I have ever met. He was EVERYWHERE, organized, calm and just on top of everything. He made everything run perfect, gave invaluable feedback and we completely trusted him. If you don't book your wedding here, you are missing out on the most one of a the best venues on Long Island. Catering halls are all the same, this place knocks it out of the park.

This should have never been a concern...our guests loved finding their own space within the venue to mingle & catch up with family & friends. It was exactly what we were looking for; a venue that feels like home, with all the same warmth & hospitality! Coindre Hall is a great venue for all ages; our nieces & cousins had a great time exploring the space. They enjoyed themselves just as much as our older guests! Another simple but meaningful touch we requested to have was a to-go coffee station as our guests were leaving. John and his staff went above & beyond throughout the entire day. Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us celebrate our big day & making it such a laid back & fun atmosphere. We truly appreciate all of the attention & time the team at Coindre Hall spent making our wedding dreams come true! God Bless, Virginia & William Lee

On the wedding day of, he ran around and made sure everything was placed correctly, guests were entertained, and it really gave me a peace of mind. I didnt have to worry much on my wedding day other than my vow. I love the venue. Coindre Hall reminds me of our vacation in Colmar, France. It has history, uniqueness, and a cozy feel. The guests were absolutely in love with the place. I didnt put in a photo booth, because why take pictures with fake background when you have a gorgeous castle like this one. Second, we picked this place because the venue only serves one wedding a day and we had the flexibility to time the wedding. Most of my guests have kids, so we wanted to come early and leave early. Most importantly, the venue has a huge parking lot next door, which makes it so convenient. We also had the ceremony outside the lawn. It was so quiet and romantic. We didnt even need a mic to speak our vows. During reading the vows, we had half the guests crying : ) Going into the wedding planning process, I had a mindset that not everything will turn out the way it will go but I did make a few very good decisions that made the wedding as smooth as it was. And one of them was definitely picking this venue.  Brides, if you are planning a wedding, please remember to have a open mind. Thats definitely helped me so much and things will work out in return. Happy Planning.
