Just in time for Spring!!!

Just in time for spring, Onteora unveils its new bridal suite!

 We’re gone off on a whole new style of interior decorating with the opening of our newly-remodeled bridal suite.  Note the color-coordinated pottery, evangelical-approved twin beds, and rabbit ears!  What other bridal suite can boast rabbit ears? Not to mention the state of the art communication system.

A special feature that will be most appreciated by newly-weds is the cement-block-totally-sound-proof-walls.   Go ahead! Have all the fun you want!

PS: It may look like our manager, Jeremy, has gained a little weight over the winter.  But that’s just the wide-angle lens. Really.

Please note:  due to unprecedented demand, this bridal suite is only available for one day this year. Today, April 1.  Be the first here. You’ll be the last.

Holiday Time at Onteora

It's not Rockefeller Center, but it is a damn big tree that takes forever to decorate.

“the groom stood… against a backdrop of majestic mountains.”

                                           - The New York Times Aug 9th

Sometimes you don’t know you’re entertaining angels until the New York Times tells you.

All we remember is a fun wedding, with a laid-back groom and thoughtful bride, and weather that was a little iffy.  Then the Times announced today that the groom is a You-Tube comedy super star.  Who’da known?

It's really quiet once the 4564 guests leave....

It's just us, the dogs, and an occasional b&b guest here between November and April.

And some nice sunsets at cocktail hour.

 Looking Back...

Looking back at 2014, it's hard to pick out one wedding, or one couple that stood out above the rest.  But above all of them (literally), and the secret star at every wedding was our new, amazing BIG ASS FAN.

It kept the hot grooms cool in July, and the cool brides warm in October, and the tablecloths just waved ever so slightly in its gentle wake.

And it's the closest we'll ever get to air conditioning here in the Catskills.
