Welcome to Shephard Hills, the unique and beautiful all-inclusive wedding venue located in the very heart of fashionable “Catskills Wedding Country!”
As a fully supported and licensed boutique event venue, Shephard Hills offers you all the beauty and style of a chic country wedding, without the headaches and expense usually involved with sourcing your own caterer, rentals, tent and sometimes even bathrooms!
Our waterside lawns, sculpted landscapes, outdoor patio, permanent tent and adjacent stone clubhouse building provide perfect locations for ceremonies, cocktail hours and receptions with dramatic mountain and lakeside panoramas. We also offer a beautiful Bridal Suite for those all-important preparations, complete with en-suite snack and beverage service to keep you refreshed!
Our events are custom created for you, from menus to timings, right down to which of your favorite wines and signature cocktails you would like to see at the bar! We pride ourselves on our warm and personal touch, our high quality, unpretentious cuisine and attentive, relaxed, elegant service.
We feature the bounty of the Catskills and Hudson Valley with our seasonal and farm-to-table kitchen and ensure that every event at Shephard Hills is special and personal. Your time with us includes complimentary use of our facilities for a Friday rehearsal dinner/gathering, a late wedding after party and a Sunday after brunch or gathering.
We will personally guide you through your planning and organizing process, we provide full complimentary Maitre D’ service on the big day to co-ordinate your celebration, and we also provide full recommendations of accomplished vendors to help you with your music, floral, photographic, decorative, things-to-keep-the-guests-entertained-ideas and other needs.
Don't forget also that Shephard Hills is a fully functioning, quality golf course, so we can offer special packages for your family and guests to relax and "get in-the-zone" before, and even after your nuptial celebrations!
We are able to offer all styles of service, from the most formal and elegant plated dinner, to relaxed and bountiful buffets, through fun stations-style events and to our most popular of choices - family-style shared entrée platters!
The best way to truly witness the beauty and possibilities of Shephard Hills and its facilities is to come by for a site tour. Visits are usually available seven days a week, please just let us know when might be a convenient time for you to stop by and see us!
Should a site visit be inconvenient, a brief telephone conversation would be enough for us to create a more detailed and customized proposal for you based on the style of event you seek. We are also able to offer complimentary samplings of our cuisine for you to enjoy!
We know very well that everyone is operating under some form of budget, so do please feel free to discuss your budgetary requirements with us, we can usually find a way to gently tweak things to make your budget work!
In terms of guest numbers we can accommodate up to 175 guests under our Clubhouse Tent, with room for dancing. If you utilize our Lakeside Grand Tent Option, we can accommodate up to 300 guests!
In terms of guest accommodations, there are plentiful options in the area, part of our service is to provide you with a full accommodations list for your guests along with suggestions for transportation, school buses etc should you wish to provide these things.
I do hope this answers your questions for now, I look forward to your first thoughts and comments, and do please give me a quick call anytime if you would like to discuss possibilities!!!
