A Local Destination Wedding Resort

Reviewed on 2/20/2012 Laurie E

From the moment my fiancé and I drove onto the grounds of Tarrytown House Estate, we were smiling from ear to ear. The winding drive up to the estate gives you the feeling of a destination wedding, without having to board a plane. The buildings are wonderfully different and... Read More architecturally beautiful. The sprawling grounds overlooking the Hudson River are gorgeous. And our first visit was in January – we could only imagine how much more spectacular it would be for our Fall wedding! Since most of our wedding guests were from out of town, TTH was perfect, as everyone stayed on grounds for the entire weekend. Throughout the process, our wedding coordinator, Dave Smith, was fantastic. He was extremely friendly, professional, accommodating, and responsive to all of our very specific needs. He was always quick to return a phone call or email, even on his days off. He, along with the rest of the staff, provided 5-star service from the moment we first visited Tarrytown House until the time we drove off to our honeymoon. We were lucky enough to get married outside in the Rose Garden. With green grass, flowers blooming, and the sun shining overhead, it really was a fairytale. From there our guests proceeded down the walkway to the Winter Palace, where they were greeted by servers holding champagne. Our cocktail hour filled both floors of the Winter Palace as well as the outside terrace. With multiple stations and plenty of food at all of them, most of our guests told us they thought there was no formal dinner, or they thought cocktail hour was dinner! Unfortunately my husband and I missed almost all of cocktail hour, but because we had asked Dave ahead of time, they saved us all the leftover food and brought it to our honeymoon suite. Both the variety and quality of the food was just exceptional. Our reception was held in the Mary Duke ballroom, which has old conference-style chairs and heavy velvet curtains; but once it was set for us, with flowers and lighting from our DJ, it looked beautiful and awesome. The bridal suite is up a staircase right outside the ballroom, which is very convenient before, during, and after your wedding. The dinner service was again perfectly executed, and the Maitre’ D was constantly monitoring the event to make sure it went off without a hitch. Things were run so smoothly that we were able to just relax and enjoy the great meal and party. We continued the party at the Cellar Bar underneath the ballroom, which only overnight guests are allowed at – they are strict, and they do check! We also had a brunch the following day for all of our overnight guests in the Library/Sun Porch/Music Room, which was warm and comforting with a lot of delicious food. All of our guests raved about TTH, saying it was one of the nicest places they’ve ever been to for a wedding. I can’t say enough about the staff at the Tarrytown House Estate - from start to finish, they were all wonderful. Everything about our wedding weekend exceeded our expectations and I can’t imagine getting married anywhere else!

Tarrytown House Estate was the perfect place to get married. Liz Edwards, our wedding coordinator/event planner, did a truly amazing job seeing to it that everything ran smoothly from the first day we booked the venue all the way through the day after the wedding. Most of our... Read More guests, including us, came from out of town so it was amazing to have everything all in one location. The staff was accommodating and incredibly polite.

Tarrytown House also provided us with day-of helpers who did everything from setting up a bridal changing area to holding my wedding dress train as we were taking pictures on the grounds to helping make sure we got to eat some of our reception dinner! They also took very good care of our 170+ guests, several of whom stayed at the estate's hotel for the weekend.

AMAZING!!!! We were married just over a month ago at Tarrytown House Estate and we could not be happier with the decision to trust them with executing the absolute best day we could have asked for. Liz was wonderful to us in the months leading up to our big day - she took... Read More her time to answer every one of our questions about the menu and space to help create both a Ceremony and Reception that was exactly what we hoped for. I emailed her MANY times along the way and she was very responsive and helpful by sending me photos of prior events and making suggestions so that I could create the perfect timeline for our day. Sandra was my Bridal Attendant and she was the BEST! My lace dress ripped a few minutes before photos and she was there to sew it in place. She also helped me with my bustle and and continually made plates of food for my husband and I and made sure we had drinks and were well taken care of as we focused on mingling with each of our guests. She took care of moving all of the items my bridal party and I left in the bridal suite over to my honeymoon suite the evening of the wedding, and she packaged all of our keepsake items and had them ready for me in our suite so that I didn't have to worry about anything at the end of the evening. We also reserved the Cellar 49 space for our after party and our guests really loved being able to stay on the property for every portion of our event. Our phones were ringing ALL DAY the day after our party to say what a great time they had. We contracted the Grand Duke package (for a party of 100) and THE FOOD IS AMAZING! We had enough food at cocktail hour to serve a small wedding. The dessert hour and party enhancements were a great way to add a little something special and unexpected treat for our guests. Our photos just came in and the West Terrace and Biddle Mansion lawn are a gorgeous backdrop for photos. They provided a table for our Cigar Roller and a space for a Sinatra Singer as well. They were completely amenable to any customizations we suggested. We know we made the best decision by choosing Tarrytown House Estate. The service is high quality and you will be well taken care of and happy with every penny you spend. Good luck!

This place was amazing. From start to finish they made me feel important. When I was shopping for venues, everywhere i sent inquiries to sent me back a general response with quoted prices, and being someone who wanted half of the minimum standard guest requirement, Tarrytown... Read More House was the only venue who asked me "what is it that you are looking for maybe we can work something out" after sending me their standard wedding package and finding out I was not looking for that type of wedding . They were the only venue that didn't force me to have the wedding they wrote on paper and they made my small intimate wedding become a beautiful reality. My wedding was amazing, it went flawlessly because of the impeccable service Tarrytown House exudes. I left my veil somewhere (have no idea where and didnt even notice i forgot it) and when I got to my room that night it was hung and wrapped in the closet, being so involved with my guests staff took initiative to wrap the top layer of my cake for me, and when I didnt remember it the next morning the Staff asked me if I had it and got it for me prior to check out. I didnt have to think, the staff here were on top of everything, there was not one thing i had to ask for or inquire about the staff clearly were proffessionals in what they do. I was stress free on my big day, i had so much fun and everything was beautiful and perfect. This place cuts no corners whatsoever, including handing out umbrellas to my guests, and setting up a pavilion umbrella (classy colors at that all uniform as if it was planned) when it began to drizzle and I told them I still wanted my ceremony outside. I noticed no rain on my day, it was all perfect. Thank you thank you thank you, best day of my life and Tarrytown House made that happen.

Months after, I am finally writing my review and I really do wish I had more positive to say. We were beyond excited to have our wedding here as this venue is truly unique and gorgeous. We were even able to move past the stressful negotiations and contracts at the beginning. We... Read More had an issue at one point with the reservations dept, but they did fix it and Alex was so helpful in the process. Leading up to the wedding, we knew there was a chance of rain on the day and we were pretty nervous about this as our plan was to be married on the terrace of the biddle mansion. The day came and of course it did wind up raining, but early enough where it did clear up in time for our ceremony. However, this is where is just all went wrong. The way Tarrytown House handled this was so disappointing and truly ruined our day. I wish I could give them an excellent rating, but they did not prove their professionalism, responsiveness or flexibility in this event. Other reviewers had met the manager Joe. Unfortunately we did not. We found out after speaking to him that he was there that day however, he never did come welcome us or intervene during our ceremony setup. Our banquet manager caused so much stress between my husband and I that it left us not even wanting to go to our own reception. When rain was in the forecast, she kept coming to us repeatedly asking if we wanted our ceremony outside(even interrupted our first look), but failed to acknowledge our request of keeping it outside. Everything was set up inside and when we asked to move it, we were told there was not enough time and our wedding party would have to help. A wedding venue with a full staff is incapable of moving 90 chairs in a matter of an hour? Joe admitted this was a mistake on their part and offered us a partial refund but it was not enough considering it ruined our wedding day. I caution other brides to be VERY upfront and forceful with what they want. No one should have felt the way we did on our wedding day.

HORRIBLE!!!!!! Beyond disgusted with management and staff. I have lived in tarrytown my whole life and I can not even believe the way we were treated like criminals. Security circles around you from the minute you arrive at the after party. Bar staff was rude and you could... Read More tell had no desire to be there. I know they have had changes in management but if they hope to last they better hire some capable management teams ASAP. It's almost like they don't want to do weddings which is fine but not after we have paid and entered a contract for a service. Good thing I live in tarrytown we will never use or recommend this establishment again for corporate or pleasure events. For someone that had the rehearsal dinner,wedding,after party,and brunch in addition to multiple rooms, at a loss of words for the lack of professionalism and down right lack of service that was agreed upon I would recommend looking else were if you want what you pay for and an enjoyable night. Thank god for my amazing vendors that made my night amazing despite the horrible venue.

We had a wedding of 300 people and they were not willing to work with us what so... Read More ever. After all the add ons we included, the 167 rooms we booked there, the rehearsal dinner, and breakfast we had there for that weekend they would not even budge on giving us anything! They gave us a room for the night of our wedding but when asked if they would give us the room on Friday night as well ($169) they refused and said thats not policy. We spent $95 a head for the rehearsal dinner, $305 a head for the wedding, and $35 a head for breakfast. After all that i thought asking for a $169 room wouldn't be a big deal. We all asked to have a tv placed in the room for a video montage. It wasn't until Friday (the day before the wedding) when i handed over the flash drive full of pictures that i was told the TV was broken and i could use their AV team who is contracted out from the Tarrytown House for a small cost. Something that was supposed to be included. The day of the wedding the cake was put out in the room in the middle of a heat wave 6 hours before the reception. The cake started to melt and the tiers were falling when my photographer got someone to move it back in to the fridge! The place is beautiful and does have a lot to offer, including great food. Just don't expect to "make a deal" and make sure you keep on everyone that is running your wedding or things will more then likely slip through the cracks

There is a whole lot more that I could not list here, but check the menu and you'll go crazy just choosing all those mouthwatering foods! We had the cocktail reception at their outside garden area, and moved the party indoors at the large ballroom for dinner. Everyone raved about their meals, it was indeed 2 thumbs up! The only beef my guests had about the meals was that the wait staff were quick in taking the plates away while they were not yet done but were out on the dancefloor dancing. We continued the party way after the event to the Cellar which is located beneath the Mansion. Only guests that were staying in the estate hotel can get in though. They were also very strict regarding noise due to the estate located in a residential neighborhood. Overall, I had a wonderful experience having my wedding reception at Tarrytow House. From the first meeting with Dave to the last day we left, they have given us their full attention and service to the hilt. We even forgot the top of our cake and called them 2 days after, they have the cake in their freezer and kept it till we got the chance to pick it up. :-) My husband and I are already planning on staying there on our anniversaries.

I don't think it's too much to ask for us to be able to enjoy that which we paid for. Also, I found it tacky that we were charged for our full meal when deciding on the venue (since we would otherwise be tasting their food only a month or two before the wedding). I feel that putting the dinner towards the wedding would have been a nice token of appreciation. So, on the whole a wonderful experience, but the establishment would do well not be so penny-wise with patrons who are spending 10s of thousands of dollars at there location.
