The Kaaterskill as a venue is amazing and Kate Arel made it perfect. She is together, responsive, has your back and gets things magically done quickly and efficiently. We had a crazy rainstorm the day of our wedding and she took control and made it all perfect regardless of the storm. We loved everything about our experience at The Kaaterskill and with Kate.
The Kaaterskill is an amazing property with multiple areas to utilize for the wedding weekend festivities, including an inn for the wedding party to stay at. Kate Arel was our venue coordinator, and truthfully, she's nothing short of a dream to work with. Myself and my team of wedding pros absolutely loved her -- she was extraordinarily responsive and helpful, she guided us in finding local resources when requested, she gave us very little restrictions when it came to executing our creative ideas (in fact, she welcomed them!), she was there personally for our multiple venue visits and the entire wedding weekend, she coordinated with my planner and design team in perfect harmony ... the list goes on. While the venue is fantastic on its own, she's truly brought out the best in it. As someone who works in the wedding industry, it's very rare to come across a venue coordinator who cares about the couples as much as Kate does, and I know our wedding weekend wouldn't have been as successful as it was without her.
The Kaaterskill is a modern farm in the Albany, New York region hosting rustic weddings. Classic red barns and sweeping views of the Catskill Mountains give off a romantic atmosphere. Located just 20 minutes from the Olana State Historic Site across the Hudson River, this quaint venue exudes charm.

The red and white barn can host a maximum of 300 guests for dancing and celebrating, or 150 for a seated dinner. Exposed wood all around glows with the couple's lighting of choice. A white tent adjacent to the barn adds an option for dinner or dancing. Across the property, locations such as a garden with a waterfall or a ringlet of trees make for picturesque ceremonies.
