My now wife and I got married here 10/15 and we could not have imagined a more perfect day. We first visited the site when it was under construction, and all we saw were renderings. The place came out EXACTLY how we expected. The staff was incredible, particularly Hope. The food was not your average wedding food. The chef over at Callicoon is exceptional, and this is coming from someone who is extremely critical of cuisines. The restaurant on site, Conover Club, is hands down one of my favorites. My wife and I will be going back every few months (we live over 2.5 hours away) just for the food. I highly recommend everyone to at least spend a weekend over here, as it is magical. If you are lucky enough to reserve a wedding here, it will not disappoint.
My daughter Charisse & husband Alex had a dream wedding in August 2021. The setting was magical, all 3 days - from the Welcome dinner, to the Ceremony, the Reception and the Farewell brunch. All 170 guests were taken by the magic, the warmth and love from everybody, and the beauty of every detail. Hope did an exceptional job creating a vision, and her team executed without a flaw. Our florist, Jill Wiener, created a paradise with her artful arrangements - a topic at every table. Thank you Callicoon Hills, Hope, Chef JP, Jill, Travis & Sarah Landon - wedding planner, Live Music Pros, Scott Clark - photography & Flynn Make up & Hair.
A huge thank you to the entire Callicoon Hills team for creating the most beautiful and memorable wedding weekend for us! We were married in June 2021 and it was a truly special and unique experience! We fell in love with the property immediately - the barn and ceremony site, the hotel rooms and amenities. The hotel staff is lovely, the property is well executed and the events team was very accommodating and helpful throughout the planning process. Most of our guests booked rooms on the property for the entire weekend. Our Friday night welcome party was a casual BBQ in the beer garden. We hosted a poolside bar and lawn games on Saturday afternoon. Our wedding ceremony and reception took place on Saturday evening at the barn, and the afterparty at the Conover Club. Sunday morning brunch was hosted on the Sundeck. All of the food and service throughout the weekend was wonderful! Thank you again to the entire Callicoon Hills team!
Our wedding weekend was a DREAM at Calicoon Hills. We were their first wedding ever, and they pulled everything off seamlessly. It was everything we hoped for: a picturesque environment, games, pool time, bon fires and amazing food (the chef is incredible.) We had 100 guests, and we loved that everyone was able to stay on the property. Our guests on both sides of the wedding got to spend quality time together throughout the weekend, which made for an even more fun reception. Each event space was perfect. The welcome party was held on the boarding house patio and lawn. The ceremony was at a gorgeous clearing in the woods near the barn. The cocktail hour was held on the barn deck, which moved right into the reception in the barn. We then moved back to the boarding house for the after party. We loved that most of our guests then changed into more comfortable clothes to continue the party, since all of the rooms were close by. I can't recommend this venue enough. Hope and the team at Calicoon Hills are true industry professionals. Our guests were raving about the venue and staff for weeks after. We look forward to many weekend trips to Calicoon Hills!
We approached Callicoon after having to cancel our original wedding due to COVID. It was a year of huge dissapointments but Callicoon has been the light at the end of the tunnel. Hope has been amazing to work with and has put our COVID PTSD at ease. Our wedding hasn't happened yet but I know how important reviews can be during the planning process and my advice to you is...consider this location NOW! Construction is about to be completed and I can tell it will have a lot of interest for the 2022 season. When planning our wedding, it was important for us to have our closest family and friends be able to comfortably stay and get to know each other through the wedding weekend. There are many places in the Catskills that have accommodations, but no location had enough for our huge immediate family. Callicoon has the most accommodations out of any of the other places we considered. Also, with other locations, they may have a beautiful property, but they don't have a designated event space. Without a designated event space, this requires tent rentals, outside catering, table rentals and even plate/silverware rentals. Callicoon has all of that taken care of! We will write another review when our day arrives, but as someone who has just went through the search process, I definitely recommend considering Callicoon for your big day!
