The Appel Inn and Gathering Space is a stunning venue! My new husband and I fell in love with the romantic garden, expansive lawn, and unique indoor space. Laurie was exceptionally helpful in planning numerous aspects of the wedding, from recommending vendors, providing feedback regarding decor choices, and planning our honeymoon. She is very responsive and highly knowledgeable. We had the best experience and wish we could do it all over again!
We cannot even begin to express what a fantastic wedding we had at the Appel Inn!! The gathering space and the grounds are absolutely gorgeous (married in July)!!! Laurie was such a great help and will give you her honest advice! That is so helpful when there's so many things people 'think' they need for a wedding. Laurie really helps you stick to your budget and can direct you towards items you can cut out. Laurie spent around 6 hours over multiple meetings with us. We would highly recommend a meeting even if you have a good idea of what you think you want. We were able to cut out $$ and still have the same effects we were going for as a direct result of our meetings.We had a great wedding and great experience! We would highly recommend the Appel Inn and Laurie to anyone and everyone who is looking to get married!!! Our day was perfect thanks to Laurie!!!
Nestled on 36 acres with vintage barns and a lovely 250 year old tavern built by Hendrick Appel, The Gathering Space will lend an atmosphere of graceful elegance to your special event. We host just one event per day, whether it is a corporate retreat for 10 or a celebration for 150. Our setting is casual enough for a wedding barbecue or formal enough for champagne and white glove service. With the addition of our new beautiful outdoor covered chapel ( under a clear top tent with a canopy trees for shade ) complete with vintage church pews and our new private "She Shed " for dressing , we remain one of the most romantic and unique venues in Upstate New York.
