My bridal shower was held here in Dec of 2013. The space was beautiful and the food was delicious! Our only complaint is Nicole. Leading up to the event we would call, wrote numerous emails and never heard anything back for weeks! Then when she would finally respond it was with the wrong information. Thus taking a few more weeks to come up with the correct information. She has an assistant I'm not sure what for as it seemed as though with two people we should have got a response back very soon. The lack of communication made us very uneasy about whether we had made the right decision in having the shower here. Luckily on the day of the shower everything was beautiful. But Nicole was very rude never said a single work to anyone, no congratulation or asked how everything was. If you are a bride looking to have your wedding here I would really think about it. Is the beauty of the space more important than the lack of communication. As if planning a wedding isn't stressful enough then you have to deal with your venue not responding to you.

We recently had our wedding here and everything was absolutely perfect. It was what we were looking for: accomodating and friendly staff, a pretty space that needed very little decoration, a place to have the ceremony, space to get ready, very very amazing food, available bar downstairs for our extensive afterparty, close to public transportation (Amtrak from Albany and NYC), and at a reasonable price point. It was perfect for our reception of about 65 people, this left just the right amount of room for a dancing area and we weren't crowded, but it didn't feel empty at all.

The bridal suite is included complimentary for the night of the wedding, so we had a huge space to get ready in, spend the night, and have breakfast the next morning. The staff was always super helpful, bringing us prosecco while getting ready, making sure we were fed, helping with setup and breakdown, etc... There is also on on-site day of coordinator that helps with making sure things go smoothly during the ceremony and reception.

Trying to get in touch with questions in the months leading up to the wedding was difficult, and often took several tries to get an answer. But in the couple weeks before, they were more responsive and everything went smoothly the day of, including when the dessert didn't arrive on time and there was some scrambling to figure things out-I only found out 2 weeks later from my mom because they didn't want to "stress out the bride" They are pros and made everything happen successfully.

From the garden ceremony to the family style dinner service, everything was perfect, especially the food (people raved about it for a week afterwards). I highly recommend the Rhinecliff if you are looking for a less formal, more intimate wedding, that does not feel like a standard banquet hall. The pictures on their website don't do it justice, you have to go in person to see for yourself!

Awesome. They could have been more responsive in the months/weeks/days leading up to the wedding but the ceremony and reception was beautiful so all is forgiven.

Absolutely, positively consider The Rhinecliff for your reception. I could NOT have been happier with my reception. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate every need (of which I had many), and I had an experience that was totally unique, gorgeous, and in the end, effortless. James is a true professional and knows exactly how to make your vision come true. He made sure every one of my requests was met and beyond. The setting is stunning and you can combine the rooms to have exactly the look and feel you envision. James is super flexible and very helpful. The food was AMAZING - chef is from the Culinary Institute; they serve family style which guests loved, some ordered seconds it was so good! Drinks were great too; my dad is a big wine guy and they went out of their way to find the exact wine he requested. James even had staff available to cater my outdoor ceremony with water & lemonade, which was at a different location altogether! It was like having multiple wedding planners for free (LOVE Erica & Amy). I felt completely taken care of, and my guests could not stop talking about how wonderful the ceremony & reception were. They don't shut down your party either, so don't worry about getting kicked out at 11pm (or ever, we were dancing until 3am with their free busboy turned DJ Max). The bridal suite is beautiful and they bring up wonderful snacks while you're getting ready and an amazing little breakfast the next morning. If you are looking for something unique, really fun, and hassle-free, look here. Just know that this place is getting really popular for weddings, so book your weekend early and expect some delays in response during the pre-planning stage. Once they start gearing up for your day, you are priority #1 and will be treated like royalty.

We used the Rhinecliff Hotel for our June wedding. The venue was beautiful. The guests had jaw-dropping views of the Hudson River from the ceremony through the reception. Plus, the proprietor (James) helped us arrange fireworks over the Hudson just as we cut the cake!!! James and his team were so helpful and so flexible. They supported our every need. Only down side was that we took photos during dinner, and our food got cold. But the team was very responsive to help us and we had an absolutely fabulous day. I'd recommend the Rhinecliff Hotel for any bride who is looking for an upscale, low key, personalized experience in a beautiful location.

We had an outdoor ceremony in the lovely garden by the river. then a wonderful reception inside as the weather got a bit chilly and windy. James was very attentive to details and presented a scrumptious and affordable menu for appetizers thru dinner and desserts. Amy was excellent and flexible with the venue and the needs of us and our guests on our wedding day. I would highly recommend the Rhinecliff as a place both for ceremony and reception. The food was excellent and praised by all who attended.

Our wedding at the Rhinecliff Sept 2010 was incredible!

The Rhinecliff is a beautiful venue that is well maintained, the scale and furnishing are perfect for an intimate event for family and friends. It is exactly what we wanted for our wedding. The views of the Hudson River, Mountains, and Roundout Lighthouse are stunning.

The food was delicious (made from local NY ingredients). The Rhinecliff has a great restaurant that we've ate at many times and loved, we were happy to find that our wedding event had the same quality of food and service! Our guests have said that the wait staff was extremely attentive, the family style meal worked perfectly; the staff made sure that no one ran out of food. Wine, which was included in our package, was always being poured, glasses were never empty. The bar tenders were professional and personable as well. Our guests had an amazing time, we are still hearing about how great the event was.

During our planning stages prior to the wedding, there had been a turn over of event coordinators, but the owner himself, James, made sure that we received "The Rhinecliff experience" as he put it himself. He kept everyone in good spirits, and seemed personally invested in the success of our wedding event. At times, we felt as if he were a part of the family!
