My husband and I and our families and friends had the best time of our loves at the manor. The ceremony was so special as I walked out deom the manor down the steps to the garden. We did a reveal and it was a perfect momwnt-we had more time to celebrate aftee the ceremony. Following the ceremony we took more pictures outside that was comfortable and when it started to sprinkle we had elegant pictures taken in the parlor and Harvey and his wife are handsdown professionals-I would suggest having them do your photography as clearly they know what they are doing. We also had lighting on the outside set up which was a beautiful setting during nighttime. Harvey and his wife are very respectful and reassuring and there were no surprises. All of his crew was very professional and helpful and the entire process from start to finish was an easy breeze! I would suggest Debbie and Kim for elegant touch catering ?? cakes by Kelly for bakery services, Pete Gerasia for a DJ, Deacon Gary Riggi for the marriage, and Tesero Restaurant for the Rehearsal Dinner!

From the moment you walk on the property and meet Harvey you are put at ease. He has done this before. The tour of the breathtaking grounds shows the love of what he does and the pride he has in making sure it's done right. We viewed the grounds in early spring before the flowers and foliage were at their peak. When our day arrived in July the grounds were better than he could describe and above our expectations. We chose the photography package as well. Having done it so many times along with his ability to design the grounds around the “perfect” picture are both clearly evident in the presentation he so proudly displays. Don't let Harvey's quiet manner or easy smile fool you though. From the moment you decide to choose Altamont Manor until you drive off the property after the ceremony has ended every detail is handled by someone who takes deep personal pride in doing the job with the highest quality and attention to detail. Thank you Harvey, Donna, and everyone at the Altamont Manor for being such a big part of our most memorable day.

If you are looking to have an intimate secluded outdoor wedding, the Altamont
Manor is the venue you need to choose. We had our wedding at the manor in July
2016 and it far exceeded our expectations. We found the venue online and
visited the venue in early spring so at that time there were no flowers or
foliage in bloom. We were blown away by how the grounds looked on wedding day.
The flowers, fountain, foliage and ceremony site were absolutely beautiful. The
manor is so unique and enchanting. The pictures on the website do not do the
venue justice. Harvey does an excellent job keeping the Altamont Manor in
pristine condition. He did an outstanding job at keeping the ceremony and
reception organized and running smoothly. We chose Harvey and Donna as our
photographers and they did a phenomenal job. Harvey is detail orientated,
patient and the owner of the Altamont Manor so he is very knowledgeable as to
where to take the perfect photographs. We highly recommend using them as your
wedding photographers. Having our wedding at the Altamont Manor was the perfect
choice for us.

Altamont Manor was the perfect place for our intimate wedding. Harvey respected our thoughts and ideas while offering some suggestions that we would have never thought of. Because he coordinated everything with the caterer and the DJ (selected by us) that was one less thing for us to worry about. Because he books only one event a day, we were able to have our 11 AM wedding followed by a brunch reception with no concerns about having to clear the place out for another party to come in. The setting was perfect. All of our guests commented about the beauty of the garden and the view from the room in which our reception was held. It is truly a welcoming place. We also used Harvey and his wife Donna as our photographers. They were professional from beginning to end and the resulting pictures were more than we could've asked for. Our wedding day was all we hoped for because Harvey listened, guided, coordinated and invested himself in our event. That personal involvement is not found in many other places. I recommend Altamont Manor with no hesitation. In fact several of our guests said they wanted to get married again just so they could have their wedding at Altamont Manor!

We didn't look anywhere else but Altamont Manor for our wedding venue. I was struggling to find a venue that would be flexible in putting together a great day for us without just prescribing the 'out of a box' wedding. We were able to get that with Harvey, who was great in terms of ensuring that we had all the details we wanted and never hesitated to listen to us or answer questions.

We had a lot of great comments about how unique the venue was and how intimate it was in comparison to other weddings that the family had attended. We succeeded in making sure we had a memorable day that our guests could enjoy too rather than just another dance party. We've already recommended the venue to another family member!

The Altamont Manor was an absolutely incredible place to have our wedding! From the moment we first met with Harvey we could tell that his venue was going to be everything we were looking for and more. The manor and the grounds were wonderfully cared for and it offered us the perfect setting for our wedding.

Throughout the entire planning process Harvey was there for us to help guide us through the process. He took the time to go over the details with us, acted as a sounding board for ideas, and offered expert advice on different ways we could make our special day that much more special.

We had a wonderful time and our guests made numerous compliments about the how wonderful the venue was. Harvey and his wife are simply the best! I cannot recommend them highly enough!

We just celebrated our wedding at the Altamont Manor and all I can say is that I am so glad we chose this place! My husband and I had a particular budget in mind and every other place we looked at was terribly expensive. The Altamont Manor was very affordable. From the moment I inquired about the place online, Harvey (who runs the manor with his wife) got back to me that same day. When my mom and I went to see the manor after finalizing a meeting time, my mom was sold as soon as we walked onto the porch overlooking a beautiful backyard. My mom and I are fans of vintage houses and this redone, charming Victorian home was the perfect setting for our wedding. We booked with Harvey that same day and I am so glad again that we did. Harvey spends so much time perfecting every detail ans asking a ton of questions to make sure he is capturing exactly what you want. I am very much a type A personality and I really enjoyed the fact that he was so focused on every last detail. Our families were so impressed with how the manor looked upon their arrival and (bonus!) our weather was perfect so we could enjoy the beautiful backyard. The view is also another added bonus as you can see the mountains in Massachusetts and it is overlooking the Altamont fairgrounds.

We decided to also have Harvey and his wife do the photography as that is their trade and you definitely get your money's worth. All in all, my husband and I have 1,100 photos on 2 discs that way we can pick and choose which ones we want to print from the comfort of our home. Harvey also offers a wide selection of photo packages to choose from for gifts, wall hangings etc.

I am so happy to be able to tell anyone to book their wedding with Harvey and his wife Donna at the Altamont Manor. They are two of the nicest people who want nothing more than to give couples the best day ever!

We were extremely happy to have our ceremony and reception held at the Altamont Manor. Harvey made the experience seamless and enjoyable for us. He allowed us to make our wedding our own while supplying valuable input when needed. The only thing that no one could control was the weather and that turned out perfect for us as well. The venue is beautiful and a little bit different which is exactly what we wanted. Using them for photography was a great choice as well. Easy and pleasant to work with during a busy and emotional day, and well versed in the property to supply the best locations and timing for quality photos. We have heard zero negative feedback from our attendees and have in fact been told by quite a few that it was the best wedding they've been too. Much of that was due to the venue and its owners.

The Altamont Manor was the perfect setting for our wedding in so many ways. For me, it was a personal, private, and intimate setting with history, elegance, grace, and beauty. Our friends and family, from northern New York and Long Island, continue to express how beautiful and memorable the venue was. When we arrived on our wedding day, the garden, lawn, manor, and banquet area were immaculate. The Victorian manor itself had strikingly beautiful woodwork, including the bar, and a spacious wrap-around porch where freshly decorated potted flower hanging baskets hung suspended above the railing. The lawn and garden were deep green and the garden still had a satisfying amount of colorful flowers near the end of September. (It was winter when we toured the Altamont Manor, but Harvey had shown us photographs of what the garden would look similar to for our wedding. By word of mouth from friends who had been to the manor for other events, we were sure that the photos were a true representation overall of the quality of the garden for the spring to fall seasons; Harvey also advised of which flowers could be expected to be blooming.) The banquet room had a beautiful scenic view and plenty of windows.
We chose to have Harvey and his wife Donna, who are also the owners of the Altamont Manor, as our photographers and I would recommend them highly. Their photo of the entire wedding party, which they went to the second story to get a good angle on, captures the beauty of the grounds as well. (Just to note: Harvey emphasized in our meeting, before we had contracted with the manor, that we did not need to have him as our photographer in order to book the manor.)
From my first phone call to the manor, through receiving our photographs, Harvey provided personalized service and thorough attention to detail. His combination of great warmth and high professionalism made working with him a wonderful experience leading up to, during, and wrapping up after the wedding.

Our daughter’s wedding was a week ago—and I’m still marveling at how seamlessly it progressed. In a word—“Harvey.” His professionalism from the interview through the process was incomparable—he had a plan for every detail, and making this wedding experience a memorable occasion was the basis of his scheme. This desire to make our daughter’s a special wedding was evident throughout. The couple and everyone involved—before, during and after the festivities—were treated with respect and courtesy. The presentation made on the facility was thorough and questions were answered immediately. Our daughter had looked at other locations but with the all-inclusive feature of ceremony and reception at the same location, a picturesque facility and grounds, they researched no further.
On the day of the event, the outdoor ceremony went off without a hitch (of course it helped that the weather cooperated, but we had no doubt he would have handled rain, too)—the flowers on the grounds and hanging from the porch were well tended and the building, inside and out, was gleaming. Finishing touches were being put on that morning with Harvey overseeing every detail—being sure that everything was just right. In fact he helped move the dance floor so that the caterers and DJ, who were also superb, were accommodated. His calm, but in-charge, attitude made everything work smoothly.
We are so thankful our daughter made Altamont Manor her wedding venue with Harvey in charge! We cannot thank Harvey Vlahos and his staff enough for making September 20, 2015, memorable. We hope those interested in elegance without fuss and anxiety will at least give Altamont Manor a look. We’re sure you will fall in love with the place and people as we did!
