weddings at the spruceton inn
Rustic. Chic. FUN.
Congrats!! Thank you so much for thinking of us for your Catskills wedding. Below are details for our 2020 season. We’ve hosted over 25 weddings here at the Inn these past six years. Hopefully we’ll host yours too!
Is your wedding situation unique and not covered in what we outline below? (Eloping with just five people? Having a Jewish ceremony on a Sunday? 70s disco themed Thursday brunch?) Just reach out to us a email@example.com and tell us more and hopefully we can still accommodate you.
And this should go without saying but we'll say it loud and clear anyway: anyone and everyone is welcome to get married here!
details for 2020:
Our available dates are from June 1st through October 4th, excluding June 20th, the 4th of July, August 28th, and Labor Day Weekend.
We host between three and four weddings per year maximum—we love being a hotel first and foremost and can best serve our wedding couples when there are only this many.
When you book the Inn for a wedding, you are booking private access to our eight acre property from Friday 3pm through Sunday 1pm. Our Front Desk and Bar in Room One, usually open to the public, is available exclusively for your guests Friday 3pm to 11pm, Saturday 8:30am to Ceremony start, Sunday 8:30am to 1pm. If you wish to BYOB for your guests during any of these hours, that can be arranged for a corkage fee. We also have “open bar” packages we can offer you during those times.
We have a MAXIMUM CAPACITY OF 100-125 GUESTS for our wedding ceremonies and receptions depending on the exact location of your festivities.
We have 9 rooms on site; 6 Kitchenettes and 3 Standards which you can see more about here. Each room has just one queen size bed, though we also have two twin size cots we can roll in one at a time to any room. This means our normal overnight capacity is 18, maximum is 20. There is a two night minimum. Your wedding package can either include all of the rooms for two nights OR rooms can be paid for by the individual guests as they book for a rate of $229 per night for Kitchenettes and $219 per night for Standards.
There are plenty of other local hotels and rental cabins to house your other guests within a fifteen to twenty-five minute drive of the Inn. We'll be happy to point you in their direction. So sorry to say there is unfortunately no camping allowed on site.
Our restored post and beam barn was first built in the 1860s in the old fashioned Dutch way with hand hewn hemlock beams, and only pegs and posts without any nails. It’s 1200 square feet (30' x 40') with a 400 square foot patio that looks out on West Kill Mountain, and has a 16 foot-long outdoor bar with interior prep space that includes a three-part dish washing sink, a hand washing sink, as well as two bathrooms, and an outdoor caterers area (20' x 10' area with electricity and water hook up).
The barn is NOT furnished, so you will want to rent your own tables and chairs etc to suit your exact needs and style. We do not provide outdoor ceremony chairs either, although there are 5 picnic tables and 12 lounge chairs you are welcome to move about the property wherever you'd like! There are several rental options in the area. We recommend Events Unlimited and Big Top, both local, both great.
Amplified music must end by 10pm and festivities in general should begin winding down then. Everyone (including caterers and anyone cleaning up) must be entirely out of the barn by 11pm. Sorry, it's our town's rule and we like to be good neighbors! And trust us, when the fun starts at 3 or 4pm, 10pm feels well past midnight way out here in the country! Overnight guests plus a handful of others are welcome to enjoy the rest of the grounds as late into the night as they'd like as long as they do not pose a disturbance to the neighborhood. We are happy to set up an after party bonfire for you as well!
We DO NOT require that you work with any vendors in particular, but here are some of our personal faves: Main Course Caterers, American Glory BBQ, Lekker, Amy's Takeaway, West Kill Brewing (for beer made right next door!), Bread Alone Bakery (cakes and small scale catering), Molly J. Marquand (flowers), Hops Petunia (flowers), Events Unlimited (tents, furniture, dish rentals etc), Big Top (tents, furniture, dish rental etc), First Student Charter Buses, Love Me Do Photography, Forged In the North Photography, Map and Compass Photography, Mr.Ok Wedding Rings, and Table to Farm tours for a fun welcome activity!
Parking is available on site for up to 40 cars. Bus drop offs are welcome and especially encouraged for large groups.
Event insurance is required. We can put you in touch with a local insurance agent who can help you take care of it. Most folks' premiums wind up being between $250-$500 depending on what exactly gets covered.
Proper event liquor license is required. Most caterers will have their own. We can also put you in touch with a local lawyer who can take care of it for you for around $250. You may BYOB for your Friday and/or Sunday events for a corkage fee to be determined in your contract.
