Old Drovers Inn–a place for all time

There is, perhaps, no more romantic a setting for saying “I do” than the Old Drovers Inn.  This historic, Hudson Valley Colonial landmark has, no doubt, been the setting for love affairs of all kinds since the 1700’s.  

Today, when couples choose to host their wedding here, they can expect not only the traditional formality of an historic colonial setting  but will soon have the opportunity to create a unique wedding experience with the construction of a new, wood-frame, period barn for large receptions of up to 250 people.  This barn–expected to be available in the spring of 2017–will be located on the picturesque grounds of the Inn and will provide all the rustic charm of yesteryear along with all the modern amenities that couples desire.

So, whether you’re planning to elope with a small, formal dinner of ten people or are planning a large reception with a Friday evening rehearsal dinner and after wedding brunch, we can accommodate you and your guests for the entire weekend.

To arrange a tour of the Inn and grounds, please call us at 845-832-9311 or e-mail us at

Our exclusive event coordinator, Monica Relyea, of Monica Relyea Events will be pleased to help you create a one-of-a-kind wedding experience.  Visit for more information.

The Intimate Affair

At Old Drovers Inn,  we specialize in the boutique-style event of 50 people or less.  The Inn has a variety of private and semi-private spaces that can create an intimate atmosphere like no other.  Whether it’s a wedding, a special birthday or a holiday party, we can mold an event to be remembered and cherished.

Tap room

The Colonial Tap Room seats up to 55 people and is a great spot for private dining. The dark wood and plastered walls, illuminated by candlelight and lanterns, set the stage for a daytime gathering or a dramatic evening affair.

Federal Room

The main dining room of the Inn can accommodate up to 26 people.  With a grand, wood-burning fireplace and hand-painted murals that date back to the 1940’s, this room can serve as the central focal point for any occasion.
