Historic Riverdale Manor is a perfect setting for wedding ceremonies and receptions, corporate conferences, special events as well as galas.

The fully restored 19th century farmhouse welcomes guests to our secluded property. The bridal party can arrive early and get dressed here in separate suites for the bride and groom. The rustic yet modern ballroom accommodates up to 200 guests for dinner. Our year round pavilion is a delightful setting for winter weddings or for dancing the night away in the summer. The sweep of lawns shaded by ancient trees along the Conestoga River makes for a beautiful backdrop for your ceremony and photographs. Adjoining outdoor terraces with river vistas are available for cocktails and hors d' oeuvres.

Ample parking, easy access to Routes 30, 462, 283 and 222 and close proximity to hotels make Riverdale Manor an event destination.

I couldn't recommend this venue more highly. Best decision we made when planning the wedding!

Our wedding was held on December 17, 2016. The day was snowy and a bit icy, but the weather never worried us since we knew we were in good hands with Maureen at Riverdale Manor! They were out shoveling the walkways and parking lot before we got there. There are several options for where to hold your ceremony on the property and we were doing ours in the pavilion anyway, so weather wasn't ever a concern. The pavilion was beautifully lit and warm. We even were able to borrow an archway and some other pieces of decor for our ceremony/cocktail hour. We served hot chocolate at the program station to keep our guests warm.

When we arrived before the wedding everything was already set up for us - we didn't have to do a thing. We could just get ready and focus on the day ahead. Linda helped Maureen that day and stayed for the duration of the evening and she was delightful. She (and the bartenders) were always making sure we had a drink or anything else that we needed. The food was wonderful! We had kabobs, meat stations, pasta station, and a dessert buffet and everyone enjoyed it. Thyme and Seasons (the official caterer for Riverdale) even made an AMAZING 2 tier naked carrot cake for us at a really affordable price.

At the end of the night, the staff at Riverdale sent us home with left over entrees and dessert, and also packed up all of our decor so there wasnt really anything for us to do at the end either.

Everyone at Riverdale was a joy to work with! Maureen, the owner, really knows what she is doing. She has a lot of previous event planning experience and she has wedding planning down to a T. Her staff is professional and friendly. They have specific rules and timings to follow, but for good reasons, and they keep the day stress free and moving forward. Couldn't have had a more wonderful wedding venue! Thank you!

My husband and I were married on 09-Dec-16 and both our ceremony and reception were held at Riverdale. I worked with Monica and she was the absolute best! Monica never seemed flustered, which is the perfect characteristic for working with brides/weddings! She always made me feel like she had everything under control. She was prompt in her email responses, timely with appoints and never seemed annoyed by my questions!

The setting was perfect for us, as well. It is located along the Conestoga River - so great for outdoor weddings (when warmer) but the ballroom also has a wall of windows that overlooks a stone patio with lanterns. The ballroom was decorated minimally for Christmas, which allowed me to put my own personal touch on the space. The Pavilion, which is where the ceremony was held, was also minimally decorated. It has a wood floor, exposed wood beams, and twinkling string lights. It was just perfect for a December wedding!

I found the cost of Riverdale to be significantly less than most venues in the area, in terms of what you get for what you pay. The rental fee was very reasonable. The menu (must use Thyme & Seasoning Catering) was extensive and offered a variety of options for all budgets (Buffett, Carving Stations, Plated) My husband and I were very pleased with how the food tasted. (Which is obviously important!) The chicken picatta was hearty and delicious and the horseradish crusted salmon was savory!
Overall, I cannot say enough great things about the venue and staff. I have no complaints and would highly recommend this venue!

Riverdale Manor was more than we dreamed of. We fell in love with the site immediately - the lovely lawn by the river and the pavilion full of lights were romantic beyond belief. It felt like a fairy tale. Monica was our coordinator, and I wish she could be present for every major life experience. She had great ideas on how to make the day flow better, and was a calming and thoughtful presence. The food was delicious, so we didn't mind having to go through their caterer. We also appreciated the flexibility to accommodate various food needs (gluten free, vegetarian, etc.) and to save some funds. We also saved a lot of money by getting married on a Sunday in early November, so if that's a concern consider off-season to keep budgets low.

We absolutely loved working with Riverdale Manor. We planned our wedding while living in VA, and the staff at Riverdale were more than accommodating with the distance and time constraints. They were well organized, and very insightful with planning the timing of the evening. I loved the convenience of the catering and venue being closely connected. Our guests were very impressed with the food, cleanliness of the facility, and how beautifully the staff decorated the space. We are so glad we were able to have our reception there!

This venue is absolutely gorgeous, and the staff is unbeatable! My husband and I were able to enjoy every moment of our day because Maureen and her staff made sure everything was taken care of without making us lift a finger! If it wasn't for Maureen and her staff I don't think the wedding would have gone as smoothly as it did!

The venue is stunning! There is enough space for your guests to walk around and so many options for ceremony space! They have several outside sites, a lovely pavilion (which we chose), and a ballroom, and the best part is that you don't have to share the venue with anyone else! Some venues we visited said they may have other weddings at the same time, but Riverdale Manor only has one wedding at a time so it's just about you and your wedding!

I can't thank you enough Maureen!!!!

My fiancé and I are getting married at Riverdale over the summer. We just had our tasting and were very pleased! If you are are Riverdale bride choosing your menu right now, we especially recommend the Pomodore Pollo and the grilled eggplant salad: DEEEELICIOUS! Our coordinator is Maureen, and we have been really enjoying getting to know her. She has a ton of experience and really knows her stuff. She also has a fun sense of humor, which we love! If Riverdale has any negative reputation in reviews, it's that people have said that there are a lot of rules and regulations. I would like to address that. So far, I have found the regulations to be relatively minor, and totally reasonable. I honestly do believe that the sheer amount of events that they hold gives them a lot of insight as to which regulations are going to make your wedding go without a hitch. I haven't asked for anything really important that Maureen said she couldn't or wouldn't accommodate. I look forward to leaving another review and addressing that again after our actual wedding, but I'd like to say: so far, so good!!! P.S. This place is GORGEOUS during the winter season and can accommodate any weather condition perfectly. We just visited for our tasting, and I have to tell you that I was almost wishing we had booked a winter wedding there...that's how gorgeous it is! They are also offering a great discount now for remaining Sundays in 2016! Please have a visit, you won't be disappointed!

We just visited for our tasting, and I have to tell you that I was almost wishing we had booked a winter wedding there...that's how gorgeous it is! They are also offering a great discount now for remaining Sundays in 2016! Please have a visit, you won't be disappointed! Read less

Riverdale is a dream venue! The grounds are gorgeous, the staff is great, and the food is delicious! I planned the wedding from out of town. Monica, the coordinator I worked with, was fabulous! Quick to answer all emails and questions. On the day of, she set up all my decorations and I didn't have to worry about a thing. She worked with all the vendors and the day could not have gone more smoothly, even with a huge thunderstorm right before the ceremony. My guests are still telling me how amazing the place was. Highly recommend to everyone!!

We got married May 29th 2016 and everything was perfect. When looking at wedding venues Riverdale stuck out right away. Once we went on a tour we fell in love! It is a beautiful property, so may amazing options to have the ceremony. We worked with Monica, she promptly answered all of our questions and concerns, calmed me down when I was getting anxious about organization, and constantly checked in with us at the wedding day making sure everything was ok. She brought us food when we were unable to eat because of our guest stopping us and talking to us. The food was amazing our guest kept raving about all of the options and how good everything was! The whole day was so organized and every little detail was put where I imaged it. I highly recommend Riverdale! The staff was attentive, the grounds are gorgeous, and the food was delicious. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect!
