My husband and I just got married at the Kittle House last weekend, and I don't even know where to begin to describe how wonderful and special everything was. Its been well over a year since we began the whole wedding planning process and Kimberly and the Kittle House team were exceptional every step of the way. They were responsive and thoughtful, offering suggestions, while also being open to our own ideas. On the actual wedding day, Kimberly, Jessica, and the whole team worked seamlessly to make sure everything ran smoothly. Their attention to detail, and care for me, my husband, and entire wedding party is so appreciated. From making sure we had enough to eat and drink to coordinating the flow of the ceremony, they went above and beyond to make sure the day was everything we imagined, and more. And of course, I can't forget the food. The food was one of the main reasons why we chose the Kittle House, and numerous guests came up to us throughout the night saying how delicious everything was from the cocktail hour to the s'mores at the end of the night. I will forever be grateful to the Kittle House for making my wedding day more than I could have imagined, and the people and place will always hold a special place in our hearts. If you choose to get married at the Kittle House you will get a truly unique and personalized experience every step of the way.
Words really can't describe how wonderful our experience was at Crabtree's Kittle House! We held both our wedding ceremony and reception there, and they were flawless. From the moment we stepped foot into the building, we were greeted with such warmth and sincerity- it couldn't be matched! Kimberly worked tirelessly to give us the perfect wedding that encompassed who we were as a couple and what we envisioned. She was quick to answer emails, offer suggestions and just send a kind note on encouragement, which made the planning process effortless. Barbara, the Inn Manager, was always available via email, keeping me informed as our wedding party booked their rooms. She was always ready to accommodate us! Joe, Leo, Jessica and every other staff member we encountered at the Kittle House made us feel welcome, important and special! Everything you could possibly want leading up to and on your wedding day! Not mention the food (which we did get to enjoy thanks to Jessica and the Kittle House staff putting together plates for us to snack on throughout the night), drinks, decor and attention to detail that the Kittle House is known for. I could go on and on, but words just do not do them justice! We can't wait to go back and relive our wedding experience every anniversary! Thank you for making this experience everything we could've dreamed of and more! You will not be disappointed hosting your wedding at Crabtree's Kittle House!
Kimberly, Leo and the entire team at Crabtree's Kittle House were fantastic!!!! We chose Kittle House in large part because of Kimberly's enthusiasm to help us customize everything to reflect our backgrounds and preferences. My husband is Brazilian and Leo and the team went above and beyond to source our favorite Brazilian foods! The wedding weekend was perfect - every time we thought of something, it had already been taken care of by the team. Our friends and family are still commenting on the amazing food and beautiful space. Highly highly recommend. Thank you Kittle House for making our wedding even better than we could have imagined!!
We got married at Crabtree's Kittle House on 10/7/17, and working with them was such a wonderful and positive experience. They were so helpful and kind throughout the planning process, and went above and beyond to make sure we had a wonderful day. In particular, our wedding coordinator, Kimberly Ann, was absolutely amazing. She was constantly thinking of ideas, keeping us informed and making helpful suggestions (as well as dealing with my barrage of crazy stressed out emails). They also made us feel like our wedding was important and special-- when I tell other people who were married at catering halls and other venues about our experience, they are shocked at the personalized attention and extraordinary treatment we received. The location is beautiful, the food is delicious and they are a dream to work with. You absolutely want to book this venue!
We cannot say enough how absolutely thrilled we were with the Kittle House as our wedding venue. Tiffany, Leo and the team were hands-on and assisted us with every question we had leading up to the big day and were attentive to our requests to customize the venue and special night. Tiffany and staff really made the days leading up to the night stress-free as they assisted with all aspects of set-up and coordination with all of our outside vendors, including photography, band and flowers. On the day of, the Staff met all of our expectations and the night was absolutely perfect. Our guests were raving about the grounds, the food and our ability to have our perfect indoor/outdoor wedding. We are excited to return to the Kittle House in the years to come for our future celebrations and recommend the venue to all considering it for their wedding day.
I was just married at the Kittle House this past weekend, and cannot speak more highly of it. Kimberly, Leo, Joseph, and the rest of the staff are incredibly attentive and will work to make sure your wedding is anything but cookie-cutter. The venue itself is beautiful, with big windows and a lovely outdoor space for the ceremony. My husband and I always felt like our perspective mattered, and did I mention the food and wine are outrageously good? We actually opted not to have a cake because the dessert selection was so delicious (FYI, the Kittle Kat Torte makes a great substitution if you want to have a cake-cutting moment). My groom and I were very interested in using local produce, proteins, and beers, and chef Jay and the restaurant management were not only accommodating, but eager to work on the menu with us. Kimberly had an answer for every question, and recommendations for every other vendor, from makeup to music to photography to even babysitting. They worked with our schedule, our room needs, and worked tirelessly to make every guest feel full, happy, and danced out by the end of the evening (including us). And the best part? My husband and I get to go back every year to celebrate our anniversary!
Crabtree's Kittle House is the perfect wedding venue that goes the extra mile and treats you like family. The Kittle House is a unique venue that allows couples to create exactly the type of wedding they want. Beautiful grounds, the most incredible food and absolutely the best staff/service. They work with you to make sure everything is exactly as you want it for your big day. The Kittle House also has an inn upstairs which has amazing rooms for you and your guests. We loved our wedding at The Kittle House and will definitely be going back to celebrate our anniversaries!
There will never be enough words to express our gratitude to Crabtree's Kittle House and their amazing staff for making our wedding so incredibly special. From our very first visit, Kimberly, our event coordinator, presented us with an unparalleled level of personal attention. Throughout our journey with Kittle House we were continually surprised by their flexibility, attention to detail, and genuine desire to make our entire experience with them amazing. We were blown away on our wedding day by how amazing everything turned out to be!! It was an absolute dream come true. Kimberly, Leo, and Jess were so amazingly talented and helpful. Kittle house is the absolute perfect venue if you're looking for a personalized experience from day one. My husband and I look forward to going back there as soon as possible!
The Kittle House was the perfect venue for our wedding! After seeing the venue and learning about all the custom options, we cancelled all out other site visits and chose the Kittle House! From the farm to table food, to the outdoor garden and cocktail hour, everything was perfect. Kimberly was amazing to work with- she listened to every request and allowed me to customize the menu, gave me great recommendations, and went above and beyond to guarantee my day would be perfect! The Maitre D' staff was also amazing- always making sure my husband and I had everything we needed during the wedding night. Jessica even helped sew the bustle on my dress when it ripped! Could not further recommend this venue and staff!!!
Kittle House was a great choice for our international, destination August wedding. We were looking for a venue close to NYC so it can easily accommodate our overseas families and friends, mostly flying into JFK, and transportation (train + cab) was a breeze even for those who didn’t drive. The venue felt very special from the start, historic inn gives it relaxed, but stylish look, different from a regular catering hall. We especially enjoyed the garden, lush greenery and perfect views for outdoor ceremony setup. We were going for classy, yet laid-back, garden party ambience, with a killer after party, and all our wishes came true because of amazing support and accommodations of Kittle House staff, in particular our coordinator Kimberly Ann. Since it was a destination wedding for us, we planned almost everything by email, and Kimberly was always there for us, very creative, attentive and responsive. We only visited the venue a few times before the wedding, but each was a great treat, we felt truly welcome. On site restaurant is great and worth a separate visit. Kimberly was extremely thoughtful and creative in incorporating traditions from our cultures and accommodating the needs of the international guests. Kittle House is very open to adding any spice to your event: we had outside vendor Chinese desserts delivered, a s’mores roast, a late night campfire party and even our own hookah for the afterparty. The venue felt truly the best of both worlds, with comfort of all-inclusive venue (gorgeous in-house linens, flowers and decor, and awesome food + planning expertise) and creativity and flexibility of bespoke event planning. Inn rooms were a great plus, everyone definitely appreciated the opportunity to prepare in large stylish rooms (we even did family photos inside), and going straight to bed at the end of a long night. The wedding day was a breeze with coordination and support of our planner, maitre’d and event coordinator. We really didn’t need to hire a wedding planner since Kittle House team did the job perfectly. The food, from entrees to desserts, was amazing, and the day was so stress-free that even us (bride and groom) managed to get to try everything! Venue took great care of vendors, guests, and the newlyweds themselves, making sure we were fed, hydrated, and knew what’s going on. The end of the party was great too -- Kittle House staff collected all our belongings from the reception area during the afterparty in the Inn Bar, and brought those to our room, packing next morning was so easy. We are so excited to refer the venue to our friends, and will be coming back to the restaurant when traveling in Upstate NY.
My husband and I got married at the Kittle House on May 26th of this year and everything was PERFECT! We visited the Kittle House a couple of times before the big day for a brunch with family and dinner with parents so they could see the venue and each time they knew exactly who we were and accommodated us in every way possible. The staff are super friendly and they all genuinely wanted to make sure we were happy. Tiffany is the best wedding planner around. She always got back to me ASAP and helped me feel at ease with the whole process. She organized everything for us leading up to the wedding which helped me feel less overwhelmed! During the big day Leo was our main man, planning the entire day and having everything run smoothly. He always made sure my husband and I had our glasses full, had something to eat, and made sure we were satisfied. When we were making our rounds going to each table thanking everyone, we returned to our table to find a full set up of champagne and food already served to us, this was perfect because we ate while everyone was up getting their food (buffet)- this also went smoothly.. not a cluster of people racing for the buffet. Before the wedding, when everyone was getting ready in our rooms, they served us mimosas and munchies (chicken wraps, fruit platter, salad, etc.). This was just enough so everyone had something in their stomach before cocktail hour- which was also a hit. So many varieties of food, it was amazing. Everyone raved about how amazing the food was. I could go on and on about how perfect everything was the day of our wedding. I would give the Kittle House a 10 star rating if I could!!! My husband and I wish we could re-live the whole experience :)
We had our ceremony and reception at Crabtree's Kittle House and it was exactly what we envisioned. It's a beautiful venue, the service is impeccable and the food is delicious. Kimberly Ann, Leo, Joe and Jennifer made us feel like family and seamlessly made the whole event go off with ease. The only thing we could possibly worry about was the weather, which held up beautifully! The venue was perfect and didn't need much additional decor, as it had an old school classic charm. All our guests raved about the place, the food and how nice everyone was. Planning was so easy and trusting Kimberly Ann was a no-brainer. She was on top of all he details, had the most thoughtful suggestions and made the process as calm and exciting as possible. Leo, Joe and Jennifer went above and beyond when it came to all the details - always providing us food - while we got ready, while we were taking photos and throughout the wedding. Unlike most brides, I was well fed - and much appreciative. The Kittle House is such a gem and we’re so glad that it was such a special part of our story.
We had the most amazing experience having our wedding at Kittle House! From our first visit, our event coordinator Tiffany was incredibly helpful, responsive, and warm. We had a number of requests for small changes or additions related to the food and drinks at the wedding, and the Kittle House team was very flexible in working with us to find a solution. The maitre'd Jessica was a total life-saver, making sure every detail was set up perfectly and even sewing the groom's pants after they split in the middle of the ceremony. Our families and wedding party repeatedly commented about how calm we were, and we were able to be so largely thanks to Tiffany and Jessica keeping things moving smoothly, anticipating our needs, and going above and beyond with thoughtful gestures. Two shining examples of this were bringing us a sample of hors d'oeuvres to our room while my hair was getting re-done after the ceremony, and placing a sample dessert plate at our table to make sure we didn't miss the chance to try it due to socializing and dancing. The venue itself was picture-perfect -- the outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour and the reception in the atrium room were beautiful and exactly what we hoped for. A number of people complimented us on selecting such a pretty venue and enjoyed reading about the history of the house. The setup of the atrium room was very intimate without being crowded, and all 130 of our guests were able to mingle comfortably with plenty of room to dance, even with a photo booth and DJ setup. The food and drinks were also phenomenal. The variety and flexibility we were able to offer were greatly appreciated by our guests, and the quality of everything was yet another thing we heard compliments about. The chef seemed to enjoy the challenge of helping us offer items not on the menu that expressed our tastes and shared history, and it really shined through. We, the wedding party, and our parents stayed at the Kittle House Inn the night before and night of the wedding, and it made for a great backdrop for getting-ready pictures, as well as adding a huge convenience to us all. The rooms were very nice and quaint, and complimented the aesthetic of the wedding perfectly. The inclusion of continental breakfast, as well as a convenient gathering point for the ceremony and rehearsal, made coordinating everyone very simple. We loved having our wedding at Crabtree's Kittle House, and we hope we get invited to another wedding there to enjoy it all over again. We plan on visiting for our anniversary to relive our perfect wedding day!
My husband and I got married on March 25th and had our reception at the Crabtree's Kittle House. Throughout the process of trying to decide on the reception venue for us, we visited a bunch of places. And initially, we were down to 2 finalists. But it felt like even our two initial finalists were just not quite "us." So, we decided to keep looking. The first place we visited on this second round of venue tours was Crabtree. We both knew almost immediately that this was the one for us. It has a simplicity and a beautiful combination of rustic elegance that we loved. And the food, oh boy, the food! There was no time during our wedding planning process that we regretted choosing Crabtree. We worked with Tiffany, their Wedding Coordinator along the way and she was able to accommodate every detail we requested, from providing space for small board games at the cocktail hour to providing my husband's favorite beer from Virginia to serving dinner family style! On the day of, our maitre'd, Leo, was the biggest help you could ask for! He kept us on schedule during the reception, continuously took care of my husband and I with drinks and food, and even accommodated us and a few friends for brunch the following day. You will have the happiest of wedding days if you choose Crabtree's Kittle House. We certainly did!
Thank you to Kimberly, Tiffany, Leo, and all the whole Crabtree team for making everything wonderful for our wedding day. I had no idea how to plan a wedding and Kimberly was a calm, reassuring presence who helped me not only with the necessary preparation at the venue, but gave great advice with how to plan and find other vendors. Tiffany was also incredibly responsive and professional. Leo was incredibly attentive and a huge help the entire day. The waitstaff are also unbelievably attentive and lovely. And of course the food was delicious. Thank you all for the amazing experience, it was everything we hoped for and more. We have so many happy memories.
We cannot say enough great things about the Kittle House. The venue was the first place we looked and we knew we would end up there. No other venue or staff compared! Tiffany, our event planner, was incredible from the start of planning to the moment we left Sunday morning. She responded to every email and question very quickly and worked with us on random requests I had throughout the process. Both maitre'ds were so helpful and on-top of every little thing. Noone missed a beat! People can't stop talking about the food, I don't think there was anything leftover on anyone's dinner plate. I would 100% recommend the Kittle House to anyone who is planning a wedding! The whole staff makes planning so easy and stress-free! Mr. Crabtree's dog that is around randomly put a smile on everyone's face as well! Thank you to the whole team there!
I do not even know where to begin when it comes to reviewing Crabtree's Kittle House for my November wedding. Their are too many goods things to say about our experience, and a short blurb could not possibly do it justice but I'll try... CKH was superb from start to finish, and that does not only include the wedding day. Literally, from the moment we contacted them about possibly touring the venue to the morning after our wedding, CKH was professional, caring and genuinely interested in making our wedding perfect. Tiffany was our venue coordinator and she was phenomenal to work with throughout the wedding planning process. Leo was also amazing and personally saw to it that all of our needs were met (even when we didn't realize we needed something!). They were organized and always stayed on top of the little details, which isn't easy when working with brides that are constantly changing their minds and adding this, that and the other thing. My husband and I never felt like a bother. Rather, we felt like family every time that we stopped by the venue. Our guests still rave about how beautiful everything looked and the FOOD. Some guests said it was the best wedding food they've ever had! Thank you to everyone at CKH for giving my husband and I the wedding of our dreams.
We got married at the Kittle House on September 17, 2016. We had so many guests tell us it was the most beautiful wedding they've ever been to (and that includes people who had seen their own children get married and came over to whisper to us that it was the most spectacular wedding they'd seen in their 60 years of life, as well as many of our friends who these days are pretty much professional wedding guests). We can’t imagine how anyone plans a wedding without the assistance of Kimberly Ann. From the first time we met with her to view the Kittle House, we were treated like family --- a feeling that continued throughout our entire planning process, which included several different visits to the Kittle House with several different members of our family. We were always taken care of, and always treated to special surprises. In regards to planning, Kimberly Ann was continually going above and beyond throughout the year-long process of us planning our wedding. She would message us with different ideas she’d see that fit into our vision -- most of which we ended up using! And she did an amazing job of keeping track of what felt like our continuous stream of ideas and updates from us...keeping everything organized and making us feel calm, confident, and taken care of from day 1 to the end. Obviously, the Kittle House grounds are remarkable, and contributed tremendously to the best days of our lives. The garden setting for our ceremony and cocktail hour was spectacularly gorgeous, and the reception space was perfect. All of our guests were in awe of how unique and beautiful the venue is - and even our band commented on how nice it was and how great the acoustics were. It also goes without saying that the food and service are spectacular, which again contributed to our wedding feeling unique and a cut above most other cookie-cutter weddings. And the day of the wedding, of course, Kimberly Ann was there, making sure everything was running smoothly. Our whole wedding party got ready in the Inn and it was such a wonderful way to spend the start to our wedding day - and made for some gorgeous photos of the getting ready process, too. Throughout our engagement, the phrase we said the most was “Thank Goodness for Kimberly Ann and Thank Goodness we picked the Kittle House.” We can’t thank them enough.
We got married at the Crabtree's Kittle House on Saturday, October 8, 2016. From the moment we first stepped foot onto the grounds for our tour of the space as a potential wedding venue, Tiffany, Jessica, Jay and the rest of the Kittle House team treated us like family. We were immediately blown away by their impeccable service, amazing food, and the historic charm of the venue that we knew this was the right place for our wedding. We planned the wedding from a far (we live in California) and Tiffany made the process so easy and seamless. Anytime we had any questions, concerns or requests, she always followed up with us promptly and put any worries to rest. A few days before our wedding, unfortunately my husband had to have emergency surgery and Tiffany and the team once again helped accommodate us in every way possible to make sure the day still went as planned. Everything was handled with such grace and professionalism, and they even surprised us with an additional dessert to accompany our already amazing dessert table. Just small, yet thoughtful touches made the entire experience that much more memorable. We are forever grateful to the entire Crabtree Kittle House team for making our wedding day so special and one that we will never forget. We look forward to coming back and celebrating our anniversaries with them!
My husband and I just recently had our wedding at Crabtree's Kittle House Inn on October 8, 2016 and it was amazing. Not only is the inn visually spectacular, but the staff are incredibly helpful and personal throughout the entire process. Our onsite event coordinator, Tiffany, did an amazing job throughout our year of planning, answering questions and providing some truly wonderful suggestions along the way. We cannot thank her enough. Additionally, our maitre 'd Leo was incredibly helpful throughout the night, from guiding us through the wine cellular during photos to making sure our glasses were never empty. Similar to the service, the farm to table menu was absolutely wonderful. Many of our guests delighted in telling us that they were amazed by the food served (the roasted chicken, sirloin of beef, and Farro Pilaf) and wanted to come back for either the brunch or dinner. Lastly, the late night S’mores option was a hit with the guests and helped to close the night out on the patio underneath the stars while other were still dancing. This little gem in Chappaqua, NY is worth a look at for the food alone, but also has incredible service with some of the nicest staff I have ever meet, and a wonderfully historic home located in an easy to get to location.
Crabtree's Kittle House was the only venue we went to visit before booking our wedding date. We knew instantly that it would be the perfect place for our wedding for a number of reasons. From the very beginning, I worked with the event coordinator, Kimberly, to learn more about the venue and eventually finalize all the little details for the big day. Kimberly is not only incredibly professional and knowledgable, she is also kind, helpful, and easy to work with. Kimberly wanted to make our day perfect while also ensuring we were relaxed and ready to have a great time. We also loved the food at the Kittle House; we had a brunch wedding on the main floor, which was absolutely perfect! The food was delicious and plentiful, which was our number one priority when selecting a venue. We also loved the decor on the main floor, which is cozy and intimate. Overall our guests complimented us on the service, food, and ambiance of the Kittle House. We could not have been happier with the entire wedding planning process and we have Kimberly and the rest of the Kittle House staff to thank. If you want a beautiful wedding in a unique setting, the Kittle House is the place for you!
This place is amazing. I was looking for a venue that was unlike every other wedding venue I've ever been to, and boy did I find it. The grounds are so beautiful, the food is outstanding, and the staff is phenomenal. I worked with Kimberly the event coordinator, and she was a god send. She was so helpful throughout the whole planning process. I couldn't have been any more happy with them. The Inn is gorgeous. All my guests loved their rooms, and they were very comfortable. Barbara the Inn Keeper was my point of contact for that, and she was very helpful, and patient. These people know what they are doing, and they do it very well. They also make you feel comfortable, like a part of their family. My wedding day was nothing short of amazing, and a lot of it has to do with the staff at Crabtree's Kittle House. Thank you so much.
We visited the Kittle House because it is a beautiful venue. Our wedding is VERY formal and wanted a place to match it. We also are having a winter wedding so it was a nice spot to have something outside during the summer. (Best of both worlds!!) After visiting the Kittle House, we KNEW that it was the perfect venue for our engagement party. Kimberly, the event coordinator, made everything run smoothly and look amazing. She was very responsive even way before we booked the venue. This is one of the main reasons we also booked them. She truly loves what she does and it wasn't just to book an event. The day of the vent was PERFECTION!!! Michael and Kimberly were both amazing along with all of the service staff. Everyone still talks about it and we are so appreciative! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
We had our summer wedding here, and words don't even express how thankful I am we chose this venue. I cannot say enough positive things about all of the staff we coordinated with (and it's obviously GORGEOUS!). Kimberly is simply the most amazing, supportive and positive coordinator we could have ever hoped to work with. Everyone was so flexible, always communicated within 12 hours, and just so sweet! I had NO STRESS the entire time I was planning with them! I couldn't have had a better experience! THANK YOU KITTLE HOUSE!
My husband and I are still glowing from our August 2016 wedding at Crabtree’s Kittle House! Kittle House was the first venue I looked at and I could not be happier that it was my final choice too! From our first tour with Kimberly, I could envision getting married at this beautiful property and I got to do so last weekend. Kimberly, Mike, Leo, and Chef Jay were a magnificent team to work with and they went above and beyond. They treated us like family during the planning process and wedding weekend-- we are excited to keep coming back for anniversaries with our “Westchester family”. The rest of the staff was caring, attentive, and engaging throughout our entire wedding weekend and made sure that everything ran smoothly! The food was unbelievable and plentiful. Our signature cocktails were made to perfection to match our requests. We had quite the dance party for our 150 guests and there was room to host our 9- piece band that made the evening come alive! We had our close friends and family stay at the Inn the night of the wedding which enhanced our around the clock experience at Kittle House! We cannot recommend the Kittle House enough for anyone else looking for the perfect wedding venue!
