From the beginning it was an easy and pleasant experience. I was living in Pennsylvania while planning my wedding and super stressed about distance planning.

My husband and I saw about 10 venues before we decided on TP - once we walked inside we knew it was the perfect fit for us. We loved that TP had the intimate feel of a house and a natural setting on the Great South Bay. Miriam was our banquet manager - she was so sweet and... Read More accommodating! My mom did all the decorations herself and we had lots of unique touches, but Miriam helped our vision come to life and never said "No" to anything. Our maitre'd Jake and bridal attendant made my husband and I feel like a king and queen - they were attentive and made sure that everything ran smoothly. I couldn't believe how efficiently the staff worked! The guests still can not stop raving about how beautiful the venue was.

the food was great the service was fabulous, the view was beautiful!! Julio was awesome-seriously the best! People loved the food-although the cake (after trying it at a showcase) was rather lackluster so they let us bring in a cake from elsewhere! We worked with Neal and he was... Read More super nice and flexible. The venue itself it amazing if you like a country club look. The only thing I didn't like was that I was dancing with my sister to a song that she mentioned in her speech that the band then started playing and I was pulled away to look at the room where the food was being set up. I think they just wanted to let me see it before everyone else got in, but honestly, dancing and enjoying my time with my sister and guest was more important. So just let them know before hand that you don't want to be bothered with little minute details if you're more into the experience. We had a full moon and the reflection off the great South Bay was stunning! Our guests really enjoyed themselves and so did we!!! Highly highly highly recommend!!!!

Beautiful ceremony & reception!

We are so thankful we found the Mansion at Timber Point for our wedding! We had an outdoor ceremony on the beautiful patio and an evening reception. Not only is the venue gorgeous, with a charm that few LI venues seems to have, but ALL of the staff seem to go above and beyond. I... Read More continued to be surprised and impressed by the helpful and attentive staff throughout the planning process and on my actual wedding day. Their professionalism and expertise made the planning process SO much easier. In particular, Miriam was absolutely amazing throughout the planning process. We met with her twice before deciding on Timber Point, and imagining our actual day there while looking at different pictures with Miriam was what helped us decide. They were so accommodating to all of our guests' dietary needs and ALL of our requests. On the day of the wedding, the maitre'd and bridal attendant were always present and helpful without feeling intruding. They made the wedding flow smoothly while reminding my husband and I to take a minute and look around, spend time with each other, etc. The food was also amazing! Our guests are still talking about it months later. We can't express how thankful we are to everyone at the Mansion at Timber Point for making our day as smooth and amazing as it was.

We had our Wedding there late August. We looked at many venues in Suffolk and Timber Point was by far the best value for quality and scenery. One Wedding at a time is also awesome. The site is beautiful and Mansion is charming. All the staff were fantastic, the food was great,... Read More and everything went as planned. The bridal attendant and maitre d' were also fantastic, they made sure we had plenty of food and got us samples of everything from cocktail hour.

Walking into our wedding reception at Timber Point made me sigh in relief and happiness. It was the perfect setting for our summer wedding -- complete with simple yet elegant decor, gorgeous outdoor space for our cocktail hour, and a layout that allowed for my husband and I to... Read More comfortably celebrate with each and every one of our guests. Despite a disappointing initial tasting, we and our guests were very happy with the delicious food, (as promised!). Bruce and his staff made a noticeable effort to ensure that my husband and I were happy, that our parents were taken care of, and that guests had everything they needed. Four stars out of five due to some constructive feedback -- Miriam is enthusiastic, knowledgeable, responsive and helpful. That said, throughout planning, we found that most requests were first met with some form of push back before a resolution was reached. I'd encourage Miriam to rework her approach in this area, as it made us concerned leading up to the big day. Luckily, everything was beautiful, as she promised, and numerous guests said it was one of the best weddings they have ever attended. My husband and I would recommend Timber Point to all couples looking for a truly special celebration.

The buerre rouge sauce for the salmon is awesome. We opted for some extra beers, the decadent dessert package and the egg sandwich/OJ bar to finish the night. (Egg sandwiches: best decision ever). Miriam also threw in coffee/cordial bar & hot pretzels as a bonus. Thank you so much! Our guests had a great time. We had a great time.

My husband and I booked Timber Point pretty much on the spot - my mom had prelooked at one other place for me since I was studying for a big exam and unable to but my mind was sold on Timber Point. We met with Neal who my dad absolutely loved and he was very knowledgeable and... Read More able to answer all my questions including some crazy ones! He was very easy to get in touch with through email and honestly never seemed bothered by any of my questions or millions of emails which is a nice quality. He was always willing to work with us with meetings as my husband and i have pretty conflicting work schedules. The week of, you bring in all the items you want displayed at the venues with list of instructions on how you want them done. Some of them i didn't honestly know until I had the items there with me at the venue so Neil allowed me some time to place the items where we wanted them and then write them down. Day of, the food was great- we loved the strip steak and mahi mahi the best out of the entrees- as bride and groom you get to try them all! Cocktail hour we didn't get to enjoy as much of because we were doing pictures but Julio who was our matri'd made sure plates were upstairs for us to enjoy which was really nice- the guests seemed to enjoy it and we lucked out with our day because we were able to have it outside. Julio was really sweet and available to anything we needed we didn't have to even blink and we had what we needed. He kept everyone going and where they needed to be at all times. The drinks and bartenders were all great- it's kind of hard at your own wedding to really enjoy the drinks because you're constantly getting pulled but we still managed to really enjoy whatever drinks we had and all the guests enjoyed them too. The Viennese hour with icecream bar was also great but again we were pulled so we couldn't enjoy it as much. They made sure to package up each of the treats though so we did enjoy it afterwards! It was such a beautiful venue and all the guests could not get over the view for the ceremony. You looked out and you could see the entire great south bay. Our photographer took us all the way down to the edge of the course and we were able to get some really beautiful pictures by the water which truly made our day. The only comment I would make is regarding the bridal attendant I had, Andrea. She was nice enough, I suppose, however i was later told she was not nice to one of our guests and she did not bustle my wedding dress right causing it to constantly come undone. one of my guests was finally able to bustle it correctly for me but it should not have been an issue I feel like. Other than that, Timber Point was an amazing place to get married and I would chose it all over again.

My husband and I were married at Timber Point June 6th and I cannot say enough good things about this beautiful place! We visited a lot of Lessings venues and other comparable venues on Long Island, but we fell in love with TP as soon as we walked in. It's a older venue with a... Read More lot of vintage charm, without being run-down like a lot of other similar venues. We worked with Miriam throughout the process and she was absolutely wonderful. She was so helpful, helping me pick vendors, giving me honest advice and helping me get the best deals. She was always so quick to get back to my emails, which a bride appreciates! We got married on a Friday, which I highly recommend because you are the only event of the day and can show up as early as you want. We also got married outside at the venue (which is a gorgeous setting with the water in the background) with a family member that is a priest, and the ceremony was beautiful and seamlessly run by TP. Venue - The mansion is gorgeous and feels so cozy, like you are at someone's beautiful old home. I loved the fireplaces and the decor (I've seen it decorated for Christmas - sooo beautiful). I also loved that the dance floor in the corner is HUGE! Food - Phenomenal, I am still getting comments on how great the food was. Definitely the best I've ever had at a wedding. Staff - Everyone is wonderful. They do a great job so you really have nothing to worry about! Price - compared to other venues the price was very reasonable, and Miriam worked with me on our budget. We also had an after party at the pub afterwards which was awesome! And we had our rehearsal dinner at the Three Village Inn, and we got 10% off since we were having our wedding at a Lessings venue. Thank you TP for giving us the most perfect day we could have ever imagined!

My husband and I paid for our own wedding, so the price was important to us, as we didn't want to dig ourselves a hole for ONE day! The Mansion at Timber Point was reasonably priced and was willing to work with us. The wedding coordinators are extremely responsive, which made... Read More planning a breeze. In the end, the service on our wedding day took the cake! Our maitre'd Jake and my bridal attendant Jolene were AMAZING! From executing my itemized list (of over 20 different DIYs to be put out) beyond my vision to simply making sure myself, my husband and our parents ate, and never had an empty drink in hand. Our guests are still calling and raving about the food and the service. Our one regret was being suckered into tenting the back patio (we had a winter wedding). After being convinced that our party would not fit in the cocktail room (we had 176), we dished out extra money to tent the patio. In the end, maybe 20 of our 176 guests even utilized it, mostly smokers. Overall, I highly recommend!

Beautiful Venue, Dissappointing Coordinator

Reviewed on 11/18/2013 Stephanie U

I booked this venue for my October wedding 2 years before my wedding date. The wedding coordinator Miriam was extremely friendly and helpful, at least in the beginning. As the wedding started to get closer I would send her emails with a list of questions and she would answer one... Read More or two of them, with no mention of getting back to me with the other answers. We planned something that was much bigger then anything they usually hold at this venue, and Miriam was more then happy to throw out ideas to help us make the day go on without a hitch, including helping us schedule the timing of the set up of the event. Four days before the wedding we got a call from our florist, not the venue, telling us that there was another party planned for the day of the wedding, and that we would not be able to get into the space until 45 minutes before the wedding was called to start. We had been working with Miriam for months, constantly checking if there was another event before ours so that we could accommodate the time constraint. She constantly told us there was nothing booked. When we confronted her about the timing issue, which she had promised us wouldn't happen, she had no recollection of assuring us this wouldn't be a problem. She made no apology for the mix up and only came up with a solution at the suggestion of our florist. Despite all the set backs with Miriam, the wedding was amazing. The Maitre'd, Jake, was an angel. We had met him previously while we were getting some dimensions of the room. He stayed with us for an hour answering any and every question we had. We requested him for the wedding, and I am glad we did. He was perfect. He was on top of everything, constantly checking with my husband, parents, in-laws, and myself to see if we needed anything. He was extremely friendly, always had a smile on his face, and made sure we did too. He made sure we were enjoying ourselves and not overwhelmed by anything. Even a month later I still get compliments about how great he was from my in-laws. The food was delicious, which was a pleasant surprise. When we went for our tasting we were extremely underwhelmed. The food was very dry and very salty. We expressed our concern, and that was when Miriam informed us that this was not their normal chef. On the day of the wedding, the food was delicious. Everything was moist and flavorful. When we went around the room, most people had finished everything on their plate. The kitchen was very accommodating with having vegetarian options and providing a tasty gluten free option for my mother-in-law and maid of honor. They were also great accommodating my nut allergy and made sure that there were no nuts in anything served that evening. In order to get all the pictures that we wanted we decided to do the pictures before the wedding. They were not very accommodating with this request. The venue is on a golf course, and we were not able to take any pictures on their course. Overall I was extremely pleased with my wedding, and the staff there. But, I could have done without the extra headache Miriam threw at us a few short days before the wedding. Luckily, the other day-of event staff at Timber Point were better then I could have hoped for, from the waitstaff to the kitchen, they were great.

The Lessing's Mansion at Timber Point was the right wedding venue for us. We looked at about 10 places before booking with them so by that point we really knew what we wanted and to look for. The biggest thing we wanted was the ability to have our 2 golden retrievers at the... Read More ceremony, so obviously it would have to be outdoors. I loved how the the mansion has a nice size outdoor patio facing the Great South Bay, and a beautiful pergola where the alter would be. And since all of the other venues we looked at prior didn't have the "right" backup plan for us in case of inclement weather, we would've had to move the ceremony indoors - which meant no doggies. That was a deal breaker for us. The mansion has a huge tent outdoors that would've accommodated the ceremony beautifully AND still allow our precious pups to be there. So that's really how my husband and I decided to book with Timber Point. But luckily the weather on our special day was beyond gorgeous. The price per person was very good compared to other places we looked, and the food was awesome!!! The maitre D (we had Jacob) and bridal attendant (oops, forgot her name) were great. Very attentive.

There are pros and cons for having your event here. The pros outweighed the cons for us which is why we went with it and am so glad we did! The cons: ~The room set up doesn't allow for the dance floor anywhere except in the corner. This meant anyone wanting to see what was... Read More going on HAD to leave their seats. A lot of our guests didn't do so. So we missed out in having a lot of people in our pictures. ~The bridal suite is on the small size. If you have a large bridal party, it gets a little cramped everyone getting ready in it. ~If there is bad weather, there are only so many places for pictures/video. We couldn't get much video downstairs while they were setting up because it was too noisy. ~People had to go through the reception room in order to get to the ceremon outside. While it didn't matter too much to me, other brides may want the set up to be more of a surprise. Pros: ~Jason was the best Matre' D EVER!!!!! There were a few issues the day of that we never even knew of until after the fact and after he took care of it. He even went out of his way to go find us the mead that was promised to us. He even came up with a few surprises for us (me). Apparently my husband was in on the surprise and couldn't wait to see my reaction! He was everywhere and nowhere at the same time. So wonderful to work with and I can't thank him enough. ~One wedding at a time. We had the Sunday twilight wedding, there was nobody before us and nobody after us and let me tell you.... it was WONDERFUL not worrying about another party going on and hearing their music or having people we don't know walking into our party or our guests walking off. ~Everyone was ranting and raving about the food. It tasted WONDERFUL!!!! They gave us a plate of each of the dinner options to share between me and my husband and gave us 2 steaks to take home that night. ~It is a Lessing's company and they hold up to everything that is in that name. The service was great, decoration was wonderful, worked with us with anything we asked. Couldn't ask for more
