And They Lived Happily Ever After...
It’s simple: this is one of the best wedding venues in America. My husband and I have been to dozens of weddings and venues across the United States and Europe over the years, but very few come close to matching the top-tier blend of quality, communication, and sheer excellence that Rebecca and the team at the Powelton Club bring to the table! Venue: The venue is gorgeous inside and out – classy, elegant, and packed with unique historical tidbits dating back to the 1880s! Our guest list was about 90 people, and the main building hosted our guests with plenty of room to spare while modifying the space to still make the interactions feel intimate and meaningful. Staff: The staff are sublime – they were so kind and accommodating while also maintaining professionalism and supporting the classy atmosphere of each evening. We had both our rehearsal dinner and reception at the club, and we were completely satisfied with everything! Food: The food is amazing! I don’t know how they do it, but I really can’t emphasize this enough. We’re still strongly considering renewing our vows or something every year or so for the sole purpose of coming back and enjoying the food at the Powelton Club (also love, yes that is important too!). We have been to weddings in wonderful locations all over the place, but often we find that a large expense for a unique/special venue comes at the cost of quality food. Not so at the Powelton Club—you get both for a great price and its frankly incredible. There was a tremendous amount of options for hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and each meal course – any taste and/or preference could be met! They were even so kind as to ensure that there were vegan options for a few of our guests. This is one of those things that can make or break a wedding, and the Powelton Club just casually knocked it out of the park. Communication + Management: While every aspect of the Powelton Club was superb, the true hero of the entire event was the Clubhouse Manager Rebecca! From our first conversation with her she was incredibly kind, knowledgeable, and helpful! Since we do not live in the area, Rebecca kindly showed our parents around the venue while we joined in over FaceTime. When COVID 19 forced us to postpone our wedding, she graciously rescheduled us for the following year. Her organization and professionalism were indispensable throughout the entire event, and it made the entire process virtually seamless! She was so flexible with any changes we needed to make, and she offered her expert advice freely as needed. Having never planned a wedding before, her guidance was very much appreciated! Closing Thoughts: Take it from us: you won’t find a better wedding venue in all of New York. So many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed their meals and what a wonderful venue the Powelton Club is. We are so grateful for Rebecca and all the staff at the Powelton Club for making our wedding such a wonderful time! We are proud to give the Powelton Club our highest possible recommendation to anyone looking for an exceptional experience!
We were more than happy with our daughter's reception at the Powelton Club. The food was fantastic, the staff pleasant and professional and the venue is beautiful. Rebecca made everything so easy. She promptly responded to all our questions, had great suggestions and in general, took the stress out of wedding reception planning!

I did a lot of shopping around for my wedding and the Powelton is the absolute best choice! Everything from the ceremony to the cake cutting was included in our package without any upcharge. Best of all, you get Rebecca. She's the event coordinator at the Powelton and she will make you feel so prepared for your big day. When I got married, I felt so happy and excited. There weren't any nagging worries lingering because I knew she had everything buttoned up. Rebecca is approachable and easy to talk to so you never have to worry about peppering her with questions. The Powelton is a cute and cozy venue with a giant bar and plenty of space to walk around. The food is phenomenal and they even have a contract with a local bakery so you don't need to worry about picking up your cake. This isn't a wedding factory or a stuck-up resort. It's a friendly, warm environment with professional people who are great at their jobs. Go check it out!
My daughter got married very recently and we had both the ceremony and the reception at the Powelton Club. In one word, everything was PERFECT from start to finish. My daughter and her husband decided to get married only about seven months prior to the date, so planning and organizing were expected to be a daunting task. But not with Rebecca as the coordinator! Rebecca is the consummate professional: she is knowledgeable and patient, giving us excellent ideas all the way through the process, including lists of all vendors we would need (and some we didn’t realize we needed). On the wedding day, she and Amber made sure that the bride and groom (and the bride’s mother--me) had absolutely everything we needed to enjoy the night. The venue is gorgeous—classy, warm and inviting, set on lovely grounds and was beautifully decorated for the holidays. The food was exceptional – I am still getting texts about that! I expected that things would go smoothly, given the attention to detail that Rebecca displays, but the night exceeded my highest expectations. I strongly suggest that if you are planning a wedding, you book the Powelton Club!

Our experience with The Powelton Club was nothing short of amazing! After COVID resulted in us canceling our original plans, we knew that we still wanted to get married but weren't sure how, where or when that could happen safely. From our first conversation with Rebecca, we were totally put at ease. In just six weeks, she helped us plan a gorgeous and perfect ceremony and dinner with our immediate family all while following the safety protocols. No matter that the wedding was only ten guests, the level of service that we received throughout the planning process and day-of from Rebecca and everyone at The Powelton Club was incredible. The venue itself is classic and the grounds make for beautiful photos and a ceremony location. To top it off, everyone was raving about the food and the level of service during dinner. It was such a special and intimate evening that would not have been possible without the kindness, patience, and guidance of Rebecca and her team. It is a day that our families will remember forever and we are so grateful. We cannot recommend this venue enough.

Everything was absolutely perfect. Rebecca was an absolute pleasure to work with, friendly, approachable, accommodating, professional, dependable, but most of all she delivered the level of service promised and went above and beyond to ensure that she did. Most of our planning happened via emails since I was not living in New York. Rebecca was very prompt with her responses and gave good, honest opinions and suggestions. I always felt a sense of ease dealing with her; which is what every bride needs. I had lots of international guests travel to our wedding from Canada, Mexico, Australia, and Belize. I received the most wonderful compliments such as " this is the best food we have ever had at a wedding!" The service was impeccable, drinks were constantly flowing, the food was served to time and hot. Chris went above and beyond to get me a specific rum for my guest who traveled from Belize. As for the venue itself, the views outdoors especially in the fall are breathtaking. The grounds were impeccably kept creating beautiful photo opportunities. The clubhouse itself is elegant and the huge fireplace promises great family portraits. I will forever be thankful and grateful to the staff of the Powelton for making my wedding day everything and more I could have dreamed off.
It was absolutely fabulous!!!!!!!!!

In December of 2019, I, like many brides, began the search for my dream venue. I knew I wanted something that had a good flow, a cozy feel, with a menu that I felt would fit our idea for our wedding. The Powelton was one that I had found through The Knot and I’m so glad that I did. We scheduled a visit and upon arrival felt as if we had walked into a classic Ralph Lauren catalog. From the massive bar that you can cozy up to, to the fire places, the venue was just classic and perfect for us. In addition, from our first phone call, Rebecca made our wedding planning process all the much easier. She was calm, organized and well versed on anything and everything wedding oriented. She was patient with my many emails, date requests and multiple visits. She sat and planned our reception start to finish with finesse that alleviated much of my anxiety. I could not have asked to find a more picture perfect location or picture perfect coordinator.

A Million Reasons Why...I know that it's crazy corny but there are quite literally a million reasons why I would recommend the PC. The venue is gorgeous, well- maintained, classic, yet able to be personalized. BONUS, not a lot of people know about this gem so your guests will have a new experience. The staff is beyond amazing! Working with Rebecca on the planning was very helpful. not only did she address things that weren't even on my radar, but when issues arose they were dealt with quickly and appropriately. It was a huge weight off my mind just knowing I had such an amazing person working with us to make our day special. Everything from getting ready in the morning to the afterparty (also held there) was taken care of and coordinated with our vendors. The food was incredible. yes, a bride that ate at her wedding, know why? because the amazing staff brought food to me and then brought my groom so we could have some food and have a break; amazing! everyone was very helpful, attentive, polite, and welcoming. our guests had an amazing time and we had the best day of our lives."

Our wedding was incredible. Their event planner, Rebecca, was second to none. From start to finish, she guided us through every detail, going above and beyond. Their manager Chris, bartenders, servers, and kitchen staff all made sure our day was perfect. I can’t put into words how grateful we are for such a perfect day.

The Powelton Club probably provided us the best service I have ever encountered in my life for any event I have ever been involved in. If I had 1, I had 6 attendees tell me it was the best wedding they ever attended. Every time we had a question or request, Rebecca had a solution. The food was fabulous. The facility is very classy. The organization during the event was perfect. And, not to leave out, the price was within our conservative price range!!! If you live in this part of the country and do not consider this venue, you are making a mistake!!

Our wedding at the Powelton Club went off without a hitch. Rebecca and staff were incredible to work with throughout the entire process leading up to our big day. Rebecca was so flexible and encouraging with all of our decisions, catering to our budget and needs. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful location to celebrate our big day with our friends and family. Everyone can't stop talking about the food and the venue as a whole.
We would highly recommend the Powelton Club to anyone searching for a venue in the Hudson Valley.

Due to the pandemic, the difficult decision to postpone our daughter’s wedding was made. In 6 weeks time, with the help of Rebecca at the Powelton Club, we had a beautiful wedding with the immediate family. Although it was a very small number, the attention to detail was no less than what you would expect if you were hosting a larger gathering. The service was terrific and the food was fabulous, all done within a safe environment that everyone felt comfortable with. They were married up on the hill under the big tree, a romantic setting. At the end of the night, my daughter and son in law said it was the absolute perfect day. I couldn’t agree more and to a parent that was music to my ears.

No words can describe the PC ‘s entire staff. Their professionalism and attention to detail is above all. I would like to thank Rebecca and Chris for everything that they did, to make the day great.

Cannot say enough how wonderful The Powelton Club and staff are. Rebecca, an amazing coordinator, would be available for any questions I had and gave great advice which shows how absolutely marvelous she is at her job. My whole experience through planning and then executing the ideas I had were all thanks to her! The food was amazing and we have gotten so many compliments about the whole culinary experience, from service to taste! The Powelton Club gave a romantic and intimate setting for my 75 guests without feeling overcrowded. Can’t thank the Powelton and staff for making my wedding day all I had dreamed and more!

I cannot say enough good things about the Powelton Club... especially Rebecca! She is truly a godsend. My husband and I planned our wedding from halfway across the country, and she made the process SO easy! I was able to be a pretty stress-free bride thanks to her. She had thought of things that never even crossed my mind. Aside from the best wedding coordinator, the venue itself is beautiful. It has a very romantic and warm feel to it. The food was AMAZING! People could not stop raving about it. The service was impeccable, and the staff was great. I also loved that there's only one wedding going on. The Powelton Club is also very handicap accessible, which was a necessity for us. In a big part, thanks to Rebecca and the Powelton Club, it really was the best day ever!

My daughter‘s Sweet 16 was recently held at the Powelton Club. The event was nothing short of fantastic! The food was delicious, the Club looked absolutely beautiful, and the atmosphere was perfect! Rebecca is amazing and made the day perfect. Five stars is not enough to get the Powelton Club.

Not only is the Powelton Club beautiful but the staff is amazing and incredible. The food is sensational and Rebecca is a Wonder Woman of wedding planning. They made my event so special and great and stress free. If you want a really truly beautiful and incredible event, use the Powelton club. They are so fantastic and I can’t say enough about how beautiful our wedding was because of the Powelton!

The Powelton Club is a beautiful venue for any occasion. I chose it for the Rehearsal Dinner for my son and future daughter-in-law. The staff is always welcoming and attentive which was wonderful for making the many out of town guests feel comfortable. The food was delicious, a wonderful gourmet meal. The menu card at the place settings was beautifully done and helpful in explaining the menu choices. I had no worries that all would be perfect. Rebecca and Manager Chris are the best!

The shower was amazing.
I am still getting text and calls from guests telling me how much they loved the shower. Saying it was the only baby shower that wasn't boring. They loved the food, the servers, the atmosphere, fireplaces, etc. My daughter and I could not be happier!!
