Our wedding at The Stockade Inn was perfect!

Our wedding was in early January 2012. We loved everything about The Stockade Inn. The staff, especially Anthony, were a pleasure to work with along the planning process and the night of the event. We got wonderful reviews from our guests about how good the food was and how much... Read More they enjoyed the open bar. Our cake from Villa Italia was included in the package and that was excellent as well. If you're looking for a beautiful, historic, and cozy setting for a wedding I highly recommend The Stockade Inn.

The Stockade Inn was the PERFECT place for my wedding reception! The manager personally works with you on all the details that you desire. The food was wonderful, the space is gorgeous without needing extra decorations and the staff was friendly and courteous. It is a small inn... Read More with ~20-22 rooms for guests to stay in. The rooms are perfect- historic but up-to-date at the same time. The suites are HUGE- perfect for pre-wedding pampering and with a canopy bed for a romantic wedding night. I have absolutely no regrets about having my reception at The Stockade Inn!

Our wedding at The Stockade Inn was INCREDIBLE! Jeff was so accommodating and willing to meet any needs we had. We asked to use the smaller banquet room and the bar as we had a small Sunday wedding, and Jeff was more than happy to help us make that work. The staff are so kind,...

Unique, classy wedding venue

We had an outstanding experience with The Stockade Inn. We worked directly with the owner, Jeff McDonald. Jeff was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. He and his staff went out of their way to make our wedding very special and unique to us. In the end, as detailed... Read Moreauyfcbefvrafaxtfuutwwtrufxwrzdburayxxw below, we got exactly the wedding we wanted at a very reasonable price. We highly recommend The Stockade Inn as a wedding venue! Venue We were looking for a venue that could "stand on its own" and not require a significant amount of decoration to achieve an elegant look. We also wanted a venue that had separate rooms for the ceremony and reception to eliminate the need for an awkward tear-down in between.The Stockade Inn met and exceeded our expectations. It is a gorgeous venue and has a storied history. It is set in the historic Stockade district of Schenectady that dates back to the Dutch colonial era. The hotel accommodations are equally gorgeous. We were able to block-out all of the rooms in the venue for the night before the wedding and the night of the wedding. Our guests absolutely loved the rooms. We were also able to utilize the beautiful Billiards Room for an after-party, that was the icing on the cake to an incredible day. Food Everything was delicious and made fresh on-site. The cocktail hour appetizers were fantastic. The salads were made from scratch, including homemade dressing. We were able to choose three entrees from a substantial list of choices plus vegetarian option. We received numerous compliments from our guests on the quality of the food. Package value The packages offered by The Stockade Inn are incredibly reasonable and deliver tremendous value. We chose the base package and it included several items that would be considered premium offerings at other venues, such as name-brand liquors at the open bar, high-end entrees like beef tenderloin and sea bass, and hot hors d'oeuvres at the cocktail hour. Our package even included a four-tier wedding cake from one of the best bakeries in the Albany area, Villa Italia Bakery.

With only a 6-month engagement, we had a lot of planning to do in a short time - We worked closely with Anthony, who was very receptive to our ideas but also willing to offer his ideas when we needed help.

My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner here and it was wonderful! The room was really pretty, the service was great, and the food was delicious! If you're having a small wedding this would be a great place, otherwise it's a terrific spot for a rehearsal dinner!
