Magical!!!! So beautiful, warm and welcoming. These are just a few of the compliments we received about Timber Point. It was everything we expected and more and we can't say it enough. I would never choose another venue outside of Lessings. This is the second wedding in my immediate family that was planned through Lessings. Both experiences were amazing. Great food, great staff, and gorgeous venues. Maureen, you were so wonderful and sweet. Thank you for helping us and for the constant communication. You made our decisions that much easier. Married a week and we are still receiving compliments from our guests about the venue, food, staff and overall service. Jake, a special thank you for taking care of us all night and for making sure I had my refill of wine. Our day was perfect because of all of you. We will never forget it. Thank you once again for all the hard work and effort. We wish you all continuous success and a wonderful holiday season! Ralph & Francesca ❤️
From my very first step into this venue I knew it was the perfect fit for my husband and I. This was literally the first and ONLY venue we went to before booking. Maureen sold us within seconds of meeting her. She was a blast to work with during the entire planning process, extremely helpful and always quick to respond to any and all of my ridiculous emails - even asking what the counter in the mens room looked like! Our wedding night was absolutely PERFECT. The staff was on point at all times, they decorated the room absolutely perfectly, even staffed the wait staff with specific people that would enjoy our Harry Potter themed wedding. It was like they were all just thrilled and happy to be a part of our special day. My Bridal Attendant Nico was amazing, as was the Maitre'd Jake. They each went above and beyond literally all night and insured my new husband and I were well taken care of, our guests were well taken care of, and the evening flowed smoothly. I wish I could give a million stars to this place and its staff - even more than that, the food was incredible and all of my guests are still raving about it! Thank you all SO much - you made our wedding night more special and magical than we could have ever imagined!
Fantastic venue and fantastic people. The location is absolutely gorgeous, and everyone there worked so hard to make sure our wedding day was perfect. And it was.
Maureen did everything from start to end absolutely perfect and did everything that we've ever asked for! I definitely recommend Timber Point to anybody who is going to be getting married soon because they are absolutely the best!
Our wedding was on Oct 21st, 2017 and it was amazing! We were set on getting married on a Saturday night and Timber Point was a reasonable price and a Lessing's, which is a reputable company. We got married at a church and when we arrived at Timber Point, everything was set up and ready to go! The weather was absolutely beautiful, but I'm still glad I rented 3 outside heaters for the back patio. Everyone was so comfortable. We took pictures as the sun was setting and I know our pictures are going to be awesome :) I didn't eat at cocktail hour but people told me the food was great and so was the service. The room looked beautiful and Jed and my bridal attendant made sure we were taken care of all night. I worked with Miriam with planning and she was great. She was responsive and was patient with all my questions/emails. The only struggle was my seating chart. I ended up having 207 at the wedding and it was difficult arranging the tables in a way that was convenient for both of our families. With that said, it absolutely worked out! I wish I didn't stress so much about the weather and size of the room. It was comfortable and the dance floor was a perfect size. Also, everyone loved the hot pretzels after the wedding was over. It was a hit! We would recommend this venue for your wedding!
Maureen, Jed & Jess... you made our wedding day absolutely amazing. We would choose Timber Point EVERY single time. The food was INCREDIBLE. They let us choose whatever sides we wanted, which was a bonus for this picky bride. The mashed potatoes....I am dreaming of them right now. The string beans were fresh and crispy... the steak,chicken AND salmon....phenomenal. Our guests raved all night. The cocktail hour, omg...Get the seafood fra diavolo-WOW.... Every single step of the wedding planning process was so much FUN and easy. We did do a few upgrades, which included a pretzel bar and mini espresso pastry table - worth EVERY penny. Our guests LOVED these! We absolutely loved every single thing about this venue. We loved that we were the only wedding going on. Lessing's is nothing short of an amazing, accommodating company. And SO very reasonable. I cannot say enough about Timber Point. THANK YOU for making our night unforgettable!!!
Best. Day. EVER! My husband and I had our wedding here on 8/20/2017 and could not have imagined a more perfect night! From the very beginning, Maureen was beyond helpful as well as calming during the process. Every step of the way, she was there making it pleasant and exciting. As we live in Boston , Maureen answered each and every email and phone call quickly during the planning process and truly helped to ease any distance stress we may have had. The day of the wedding she went above and beyond when she so kindly turned her office into a changing and play room for my young nephews. In addition to Maureen, the ENTIRE staff of Timber Point was extremely friendly and our guests commented on how warm the staff was as well as the venue. Jed and Nicolette were on the top of their game and helped to keep everything relaxed and moving promptly on our wedding day. I can honestly say, thanks to Jed and Nicolette, I had no anxiety or stress the entire day. The ballroom looked absolutely stunning and better than we could have imagined. They took care of all of the little details and truly made our vision come to life. Lastly, the food was INCREDIBLE! The NY strip steak and Mahi-Mahi options were huge crowd pleasers. We have received so many compliments on the food especially cocktail hour and how many choices there were as well as how yummy they all were. 5 stars isn't enough to truly show how amazing Timber Point is at making your wedding day the best it can be!
All we can say is WOW!! I absolutely loved this venue! I can't even describe how beautiful it was in words! We did have perfect summer weather for our wedding, but I would say this venue would be beautiful during any season. Some of the pictures and video clips we've seen so far from our wedding day looks so amazing I can't wait to see the rest. The golf course really makes it look like it's just us around in our own mansion. The food was delicious! Everyone was saying how good the food came out, especially the Chateu Briand. I had the Mediterranean Chicken which I couldn't eat enough of. Our maitrede was the best! He really kept things in order, made sure we were doing well, and was so friendly. The staff I heard were great and the bartenders never had a line but everyone had drinks which was impressive! Maureen, our sales manager was a big reason we decided to book this venue in the first place. She is the sweetest person, answered all my questions no matter how many times I've asked her over the 20 months since we booked, and just made us feel very comfortable. Lastly, all I'll say is I can't believe how affordable a summer Saturday night wedding was for such a wonderful place compared to our Nassau County venues. If you're from Nassau County like us, I would recommend making a visit.
Timber Point seriously went above and beyond in every way for our wedding! I absolutely loved my experience with them and can't recommend them enough!
I'm attaching a thank you letter we sent to Maureen at Timber Point: Dear Maureen, We can not thank you and your staff enough (Jedd was our maitre d and Danielle was our bridal attendant) for all of your help leading up to and on our wedding day (7/14/17). I can only imagine in your line of work, that probably seems like years ago! You have been an incredible resource to us since the first day we met you and for that we are so extremely thankful. You have always been so easy to talk to and so responsive to my questions and requests throughout the entire wedding planning process. I can't say it enough, but you are wonderful at what you do. From the moment our bridal party limo pulled up to Timber Point on our wedding day, Jedd introduced himself to us-which made us feel immediately at ease. He was extremely professional, attentive, and respectful of the schedule we had in mind for the night. Danielle was nearby if I needed anything and was always offering to fill our drinks and give us a hand with anything (removing my veil, bustling my dress, etc.). Our guests raved about the abundance of food at the cocktail hour, the white gloved servers, and how professionally dinner was presented to them. They were in awe over the amount of food at the cocktail hour and raved about the cocktail hour food & dinner choices. The pretzels were the perfect favor for our guests as they waited for the shuttle back to the hotel. Please pass along all of these compliments to the chef and wait staff as well as Jedd & Danielle. I'm pretty confident that in your line of work you don't get the number of thank you's that you deserve, so please know that we are SO very thankful for everything you all did to help our wedding day run so smoothly at Timber Point. I kept telling everyone I was really nervous about the church, but after we said our vows and exchanged our rings, I was completely relaxed knowing that everything at Timber Point would run flawlessly....and it did! I will be sure to recommend Timber Point to anyone I know looking for a venue. Please let me know if I can send this email to your boss or someone else at Lessings, just to remind them what a wonderful staff they have!
Amazing!!!!!! Jeb and Danielle absolutely amazing and made sure me, my husband and family were happy and comfortable the entire night. The food was amazing and it looked absolutely gorgeous! Best night ever!
We got married at Timber Point on Saturday, 7/8 and everything was perfect! Maureen was so great to work with throughout the entire planning process. Our Maitre D (Jake) and bridal attendant (Nicolette) were on their game! Wish we could do it all over again!!!!
My Husband and I got Married in April and had our reception at Timber Point Mansion. There is not enough room for us to write just how amazing we think everyone there is! Maureen was beyond incredible to work with...from our very first meeting, to choosing menu options, coordinating with our other vendors, to answering a million questions along the way, Maureen was terrific and always put us at ease. The day of, we were lucky enough to have Jake as our maitre d. He could not have been more attentive...not just to us, but our families as well. He made sure every little detail was perfect and that we had everything we needed throughout the evening. You can tell everyone at Timber Point has pride in their work and they make you feel as if you truly are the most important Bride and Groom! We are so happy we chose Timber Point as our reception venue and are grateful to them for helping to make it our best day yet!
Our wedding June 2 was perfect! We were beyond thrilled with everything timber point did for us, our day could not have gone any better or smoother. Working with Maureen was great she is very knowledgeable and available for any help along the way. The food was amazing everyone went up more than once for second and third plates (we did the cocktail hour style wedding - highly recommend!) the entire staff was professional and the bridal attendant and matre di were excellent. If I had to do it again (we wish we could relive it!) I wouldn't change a thing !
Everything was PERFECT for our wedding at Timber Point. From our first appointment to see the menu up until packing up our stuff after the wedding, we could not have been happier. Maureen made everything so easy and was always there to answer any of our questions. Our maitre d', Jake, was awesome and so accommodating. The staff set up the room exactly how we pictured and carefully packed up our belongings at the end of the night as well. We had so many compliments on the day and the food.
Maureen, Danielle, and Jake were fantastic! Any questions a had, even numerous emails in a row, Maureen responded quickly. Jake and Danielle kept my day moving so smoothly. They checked in with my regularly and made sure I got everything I needed and kept us on time. And the food was some of the best food I've ever had at a wedding! So many guests complimented the food choice and tastes. I could not have asked for a better location, day, and team!
Everything about our wedding was absolutely AMAZING! If I could give more than 5 stars I would. The staff is incredible, first of all Maureen is an absolutely pleasure to work with. She made our planning so easy and happy. Our Maitre D Jake was incredible and my bridal attendant Jolene was FABULOUS! The food was delicious and the grounds, cocktail hour room and ballroom were stunning. I could not have asked for a better wedding. Everything about it was perfect!!! I HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to get married, definitely check out The Mansion at Timber Point!!
This location is just incredible! We were married here on March 17th 2017. From the very beginning of our journey- Maureen was amazing. She was so helpful, and quick with responses! She even took time on her days off to answer my silly questions! The day was so amazing. Everything ran so smoothly. Jed was our maitre'd, and he was so on top of everything. So many people came up to us saying how delicious the food was, and how well everything was going. We have been told on multiple occasions that it was the best wedding they have been to. The space is beautiful! I am not a conventional bride, so I wanted a venue that I could make my own. The Mansion at Timber Point is that place. It's romantic, glamorous, and cozy. We can't recommend it enough! Thank you!
The Mansion at Timber Point was the perfect venue for our wedding. The grounds, the ballroom, everything was breathtakingly beautiful. The service we received was outstanding. So many of our guests commented on how awesome the service was. Maureen was so attentive and was on top of every detail for us. Julio and Katherine were also amazing on our wedding day. They took care of everything for us. I highly recommend getting married at Timber Point.
We had our wedding at the Mansion at Timber Point on July 3, 2016 and there is not one negative thing we can say about this venue - from location, to food, and service - it was everything we hoped for and more. We had a fantastic ceremony and reception; our guests (and us!) are still talking about the food, drinks, and overall fun, memorable night we had. Miriam was an absolute pleasure to work with, we always looked forward to discussing wedding details with her; she was thorough, accommodating, helpful, and easy to communicate with. Julio, Danielle, and the entire staff went above and beyond the day of; they took great care of us, our families, and guests. We couldn't have ask for a better venue! THANK YOU Timber Point for an amazing wedding!
Timber Point isn't just great for the price, it's great period. I grew up in the area and was familiar with Timber Point and Lessings. When it came time to start visiting venues for our wedding I knew I wanted to visit a few of the Lessings properties. We first looked at Timber Point because of its reasonable price and the food which we knew was very good from family and friend accounts. We decided on Timber Point because it also had the low-key charm we were looking for, was on the water, had outdoor space and hosted just one event at a time. We also liked the many different add ons we could purchase. There's definitely pluses and minuses to having your wedding in a catering hall - you get a lot of services bundled together so you don't have to plan every little detail like renting plates and tables and such, but you also sometimes lose a bit of personalization that makes it your own. We were able to enhance the bar with special bottles of liquor like Titos and Maker's Mark, added a keg of hard cider and opted for a few cocktail and dessert hour enhancements that gave us guests more food options (though Timber Point is one of the more generous catering halls so even without the enhancements there definitely would have been more than enough food). We were also able to decorate the space with some special touches that our bridal attendant, Danielle, took care of. We worked with Maureen before the wedding, who always quickly responded to our emails and offered good advice on vendors and decorating ideas. A couple times I got overwhelmed with small details and timing and timelines and Maureen offered guidance that I was able to incorporate into our plans - incredibly helpful. On the day of the wedding, Julio took amazing care of us and our wedding party and parents. He kept things flowing so well and took care of any issue or problem that arose so quietly and efficiently, my husband and I called him "The Guest Whisperer." He made sure we got to eat, always had something to drink, and generally just watched out for us the whole night. He was amazing. The food was delicious as we knew it would be, and the bartenders made good stiff drinks which our friends loved. Family and friends told us it was some of the best food they had at a wedding (even had a co-worker say it was "exceptionally good" and I don't believe he was just blowing smoke) and the atmosphere was spot on. It's not an over the top place, but that's what we wanted and it was perfect. We had an amazing time, and when it was all done we wished we could turn the clock back and relive the day one more time. . We kind of want to crash a Timber Point wedding next fall so we can experience exactly what our guests experienced. If you're looking for a catering hall with some old-world charm and good solid food, we definitely recommend Timber Point.
Wow!! It was the best day we could ever ask for. The place is set back, quaint, beautiful, serene, nature like away from the hustle & bustle. You are the only Bride there. You have access to the indoors and outdoors. Nice size dance floor, food was excellent. The staff was friendly and attentive. We would like to thank Maureen & Jake for making our day so special. This is a place we will visit every year around our anniversary. How many places can you say that about? My Husband and I would highly recommend this place:)
We had our wedding at Timber Point on 9/24/16 and it couldn't have gone better. From the moment you walk in the front door, you're brought back to a vintage era of class that you just rarely see nowadays. Beautiful hardwood floors, huge fireplaces, and a patio in the back with an amazing view of the property all the way down to the water. Maureen and Julio were the best and treated us like we were the only ones on their schedule. They provided everything that we needed and really made everything as easy as possible, from start to finish and they're just genuinely great people to work with. I can't overstate that. Even some last minute changes the week of the wedding were no problem. The food was 5 stars across the board, and all of our guests raved about it. Weeks later, we're still being told what a great wedding we had and how perfect everything was, and that has everything to do with Timber Point and their amazing staff. Anyone planning a wedding knows how stressful and hectic it can be, but Timber Point goes above and beyond to make the best day of your life a truly memorable one.
EVERYTHING was absolutely amazing and perfect. The staff here at TImber Point literally go above and beyond to make sure your wedding is PERFECT! From the minute i first visited Timber Point, i knew this is the place we will be saying I DO. It is absolutely beautiful and has such a romantic and elegant feel to it. Exactly what I pictured for our wedding day. Timber Point has wood floors, outdoor patio and one wedding at a time, these were three main factors i wanted. Besides those three details, the staff here is the best. They really go above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect. We worked with Maureen and she is amazing. She was so prompt with answering emails and any question we had. The day of, they take your vision and make it a reality. Every little detail was impeccable. The minute i walked through the doors on my wedding day, every bit of anxiety i had went out the window. The place is STUNNING, the staff greeted me immediately and did not leave my side. The food was absolutely delicious!!!! Everyone is still talking about how amazing Timber Point is and how great the staff is. Julia (bridal attendant), Isais (Maitre'D), Julio and Maureen, I can not thank you guys enough for making our wedding day the BEST day ever. I highly recommend Timber Point to all future brides. If you want an elegant wedding with amazing food, great staff, extremely reasonable price per person, Timber Point is the place. Thank you again to Timber Point for making our wedding day one that we will never forget or have any regrets!!!! Love, Mr & Mrs Chris Encalada
Everything...EVERYTHING was perfect! The staff was amazing, the venue is gorgeous, the food was outstanding... I highly, highly recommend Timber Point. The venue... everyone has their own style, so you will *know* when you find the right venue. That was how I felt when I looked around Timber Point. Plenty of natural light, wood floors, a big fireplace -- I fell in love immediately. The food was incredible and I got tremendously positive feedback from all of my guests about the venue (food, staff, and the beauty of the place). The first person I met was Miriam. She is very sweet and was a pleasure to work with. When I met her, I hadn't put much of a budget together yet; I was feeling excited but definitely a bit overwhelmed... Miriam gave me helpful advice on everything. She answered all of my questions and more, she showed me plenty of pictures to give me inspiration for the big day (day wedding? night wedding? rustic theme or more modern?... I had no idea at this point), she even gave me suggestions on places to get beautiful decorations without overspending. More than anything, Miriam put my mind at ease at the start of my planning process when it feels like there's a million tasks to tackle. She can offer as much or as little advice as you need about planning your wedding while feeling like your talking to a friend rather than a salesperson. The staff... my Maitr' d was Jake, my bridal attendant was Gabby and the head of the floor staff was Matt. All three of them were outstanding. Jake got everyone lined up and where they needed to be, kept things running smoothly (as did Matt). Gabby was a superhero... not only was she making sure things were setup properly, but her or Jake were within arms distance at all times making sure we had everything we needed. During dessert I got chocolate on the bottom of my gown and she was there with club soda to clean it out within seconds. I can't say enough great things. I am so happy, my husband is so happy and our guests told us numerous times that it was one of the best weddings they've been to. Best wishes to you in your planning and your happily ever after :)
