While the Hudson Valley has long been the playground for wealthy New Yorkers, it is now also the hallowed ground where city couples and out-of-towners are saying "I do." With options ranging from epic old dairy barns to 19th-century industrial warehouses, there is no shortage of ideal venues for every vision and style. But as couples hunt for that perfect place to make all their Pinterest dreams come true, guest lodging can sometimes fall by the wayside. Given that family and friends are probably travelling from all over to join you for your big day, choosing a venue that has ample accommodations onsite or nearby is a thoughtful consideration. Plus, the more the merrier!

We've rounded up 15 wedding venues in the Hudson Valley and the Catskills that have onsite accommodations. The smallest can sleep just the bridal party and close family and the largest the whole wedding of over 100 guests.

Gather Greene, Coxsackie

Gather Greene, a new event site and glamping destination in Coxsackie, blends accessibility, comfort, and access to nature. With 100 acres of woods just 20 minutes from Hudson and 17 Scandinavian-style tiny house cottages for two, the grounds offer a private and relaxing environment for your big day. The permanent, open-air pavilion has capacity for 250 guests, with 28-foot-tall, arched ceilings and sweeping vistas. It also has a full catering kitchen, six single-use bathrooms, two dressing rooms/meeting suites, and a large upstairs lounge.

Lumberyard

From industry to avant-garde arts hub to wedding venue, Lumberyard in Catskill is truly a synecdoche for the changing economy and cultural climate of Greene County. Couple can choose from either the industrial-chic Theater/Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 390 guests, or the smaller, rustic Creekside studio, which can hold 150 guests, or do a full-property buyout for exclusive use. With 13 recently renovated guest rooms, the venue can sleep up to 25 guests onsite.

Diamond Mills, Saugerties

Once the site of a hydro-powered mill, this luxury boutique hotel in Saugerties overlooks the gushing Esopus Creek. Diamond Mills has a flexible space that can comfortably accommodate your events. Up to 350 guests can attend a wedding here, with a ceremony overlooking the falls and a reception in the well-appointed ballroom. With 30 rooms, this inn can sleep a hefty chunk of your guest list. If you'd prefer, you can have your wedding at Diamond Mills' sister property Saugerties Steamboat Co. A full-service event venue and boatyard set on a historical site, Saugerties Steamboat Co. offers spectacular views of the Hudson River with both outdoor and indoor sites for your reception and ceremony.

Audrey's Farmhouse, Wallkill

After taking over Audrey's Farmhouse in 2015, Sally and Doug Posey bought the lot across the street, a former flower nursery, which they have transformed into The Greenhouses—a 14-room hotel, jungle-chic wedding venue, and restaurant. With accommodations in the hotel, the farmhouse, and the adjacent cottage, the property can sleep 42 people. And Audrey's is pet-friendly, in case you want your Rottweiler to be your ringbearer.

Full Moon Resort, Big Indian

Situated right in the middle of the Catskill Forest Preserve, Full Moon Resort offers a tranquil, natural setting for your wedding with over 100 acres of mountainside forests, meadows, streams, and ponds. Get married creekside beneath the sky, in a field under a tent, or in the rustic wedding barn. A year-round setting for educational, recreational, and artistic workshops, Full Moon offers a handful of venues for every phase of your wedding from welcome cocktails to the late night bonfire hang. There is also a wide range of accommodations from glamping to country-inn-style guest rooms to luxury cottages.

Glen Falls House, Round Top

Perched on 50 acres, the Glen Falls House offers miles of wooded hiking trails, open fields, swimming holes, and two waterfalls. The property has lodging for 110 guests split over three buildings plus camping. Given the bucolic grounds and the abundance of lodging, this resort is a prime wedding destination for larger parties of 150 to 300 people. With two onsite catering and group event packages, this is the perfect spot for a summer camp-style wedding.

Buttermilk Falls, Milton

Sitting on the banks of the Hudson River, Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa is an idyllic venue encompassing 75 acres of cascading lawns, woodlands, and winding streams. A hotel and working farm with a spa and restaurant, this venue combines historic elegance, modern luxury, country charm, and sophisticated amenities (plus peacocks and donkeys!). With 18 suites, the inn accommodates up to 50 guests. The onsite restaurant, Henry's at the Farm, will handle wedding catering and the world-class eco-friendly spa is perfect for relaxing before the big day.

Poughkeepsie Grand, Poughkeepsie

Want to have an upstate wedding but with an urban flair? The Poughkeepsie Grand hotel recently unveiled its rooftop ceremony garden, which offers panoramic views of the Catskills, the Hudson River, the surrounding cityscape, and the farms beyond. There are also two ballrooms to choose from if you'd rather say "I do" indoors. With over 200 rooms, there is definitely space for the whole guest list. Wedding blocks start with a 10-room guarantee, and all bookings include a wedding suite for the couple. Just a few blocks from the Metro North Station, out of towners can get to your wedding without renting a car. Huzzah!

Ashokan Center, Olivebridge

Nestled in the lush foothills of the Catskill Mountains, the Ashokan Center has offered immersive music and dance camps and nature-based educational programming for a decade. Dotted with pastures, forests, and meadows and bisected by the Esopus Creek, the 385-acre property has numerous romantic outdoor sites for a plein-air wedding. And with onsite lodging for 150 guests, the 385-acre property also makes a perfect destination wedding venue, with all your guests in one place.

Vanderbilt Lakeside, Philmont

The recently renovated Vanderbilt Lakeside Bar Room & Guesthouse wraps upscale Victorian vibes and a laidback lake-house attitude into one cozy location. The historic Philmont establishment boasts eight, cozy light-filled guest rooms—each with private en suite bathroom. In the backyard, an emerald expanse of lawn stretches to the shores of the 20-acre Summit Lake, where 500 feet of water frontage would make a perfect backdrop for a summer wedding ceremony. The backyard also boasts an outdoor bar, firepits, and chimineas. The Vanderbilt can accommodate a wedding party of up to 80 guests. Work with their CIA-trained chef to customize a food and drink package, or bring in an outside caterer.

Southwood Estate, Germantown

Originally the estate one of Robert Livingston's grandchildren, Southwood has the serene elegance and regal bearing you would expect of a Founding Father's manor. Eight-six acres of rolling meadows, perennial gardens, and lush forests run alongside the Hudson River, offering views of the Catskills and spectacular sunsets. Southwood hosts a limited number of high-end (and high-budget) weddings a year and can accommodate up to 150 guests. For wedding parties that wish to stay onsite, the central mansion sleeps up to 12, the cottage sleeps an additional five to seven, and historic gate house sleeps six. Southwood requires a two-night minimum.

The Inn at Shaker Mill Falls

This 20-room inn, retreat center, and event venue in Canaan operates out of a 19th-century stone building originally built as a gristmill. With acres of edible landscaping, organic vegetable gardens, lawns, streams, and forest, this is a peaceful wedding site for parties of up to 70. Weddings are usually held in a tent near the pond, but smaller events can also be held in the sunroom. For additional lodging, there is another inn right across the street. The staff can work with the couple to create a custom, seasonal menu, and they also have two interfaith ministers available.

Troutbeck, Amenia

Troutbeck is a historic Tudor-style mansion-turned-inn on 45 manicured acres in eastern Dutchess County. Laced with gardens, secret pathways, stone bridges over the Dunham Creek, and quaint outbuildings, the lush estate offers endless romantic photo opportunities for your big day. The property also has a farm-to-table restaurant run by decorated chef Marcel Agnez, an outdoor pool, and a ballroom event space. Lodging is split between the main Manor house, Century House, and Garden House, with accommodations for up to 72 guests.

The Rhinecliff, Rhinecliff

Originally built in 1854, The Rhinecliff came of age as a resting place and watering hole for railroad and ferry passengers. Today, as a nine-room boutique hotel, the historic building maintains its sterling hospitality reputation with a pub and brasserie and river views from every room. Exchange vows on the expansive bluestone patio as the sun sets behind the Catskills, before heading into the banquet hall for the reception. Walking distance from the Amtrak station, The Rhinecliff allows wedding guests coming from afar to arrive without renting a car.

Kaatsbaan International Dance Center, Tivoli

Kaatsbaan sits on 153 acres of hay fields and woodlands, offering views of Hudson River and the Catskill Mountains. The expansive bucolic setting offers welcome peace of mind for the world-class dancers and choreographers that pilgrimage to Kaatsbaan every year for residencies—and for the brides and grooms that choose this spot to get married. Capable of hosting wedding parties of up to 130 people inside the Music Barn or upward of 200 outdoors, Kaatsbaan is a great option for larger groups. The inn has 16 motel-style rooms, accommodating 32 guests or more with children.
