I can’t recommend Ashokan Dreams highly enough! My new husband and I held our wedding ceremony and reception here and it was utterly perfect. There are three cool wooden and stone structures organically situated on the beautifully-maintained, lush-but-not-fussy grounds that do a great job of showcasing the stunning view of the Ashokan Reservoir. The setting lent such a special, memorable quality to our wedding that we are so pleased our guests could share in.
As for the rooms, we stayed in the Reservoir Suite, which is warmly and rustically decorated with plenty of beautiful wood, eclectic furniture, and personal touches. My only grievance is that with a wedding going on we couldn’t spend more time relaxing in the cozy, elegant suite. Breakfast was utterly scrumptious, with local, seasonal ingredients, delivered on our private patio at the hour of our choice.
And last but not least, our hosts were beyond wonderful. Anne-Marie was a font of knowledge and resources, keeping us on schedule and excited about the wedding throughout the entire experience, offering thoughtful insights and perks to help make it the wedding of our dreams.
