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.

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!

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.

My husband and I originally met with Harvey in early February when there was about 20 inches of snow on the ground. It was hard to envision how the gardens would look in early September. During our initial meeting, Harvey shared photos that he and his wife, Donna, had taken over the years that reflected the true beauty of the gardens and fountain area of the property. We were so excited as we truly wanted a "Garden Wedding". We had no hesitation in booking The Altamont Manor for our Ceremony and Reception location. Additionally, we knew (by the time we arrived home from our appointment with Harvey) that we wanted Harvey and Donna to be our wedding photographers. They are a "Class Act". In the months leading up to our wedding day, Harvey was helpful in recommending outside vendors that we may want to consider for their services (as we had no idea who to contact). Since we wanted to hold both an outdoor wedding and reception (and praying a lot for nice weather), we requested the outdoor lighting package which illuminated the wrap-around porch, the steps leading to the lower garden and fountain, and the fountain surround. Harvey coordinated the rehearsal as well as the "Day of" series of events. To our delight, we had a beautiful early September day with not a cloud in the sky. Harvey and Donna captured so many photos - First Look, couple photos, individual photos, family photos, etc. - each in a beautiful setting. While away on our honeymoon, Harvey compiled all the photos, burned them to DVDs, and mailed them to us so they arrived by the time we returned home. What a treat to view the photos. We felt as if we were reliving our wedding day.

For those looking for a lovely setting in the country offering beautiful gardens (as well as an indoor banquet room) and tranquility, The Altamont Manor is the place for you. I would also highly recommend the photography services.

My wife and I held our wedding and reception at The Altamont Manor. We wanted a garden wedding and a reception with our family and closest friends. Harvey and his wife were our photographers. They captured so many photos of not only my wife and I, but also candid moments of our family and friends. We enjoyed an outdoor wedding in the lower garden and had the reception outdoor on the main lawn. We had a beautiful day from start to finish with special thanks to Harvey and Donna.
