Guestbook comments from the owner
We recently held our wedding at Spruce Lake Farm, and, weeks later, our friends and family are still raving about the venue. We rented the house for the week, so our wedding party and close family got to spend a lot of time together. We had about 130 people at the reception, and there was ample space for a large tent and other equipment. We had a string band play, and we did all of our event rentals through Morris Tent Rental, who was amazing. Brooks BBQ catered, and cooked on site, which was a huge hit and the food was delicious.
We live in Boston and had family coming from both Boston and the NJ/NYC areas, and everyone was happy to make the trip and enjoy a long weekend in the Catskills, but it was also close enough for some guests to just come up for the ceremony and reception. We really enjoyed the lake, and our friends and family enjoyed boating, fishing and swimming to break up the wedding-planning preparations.
Honestly, I can't say enough about this place. The house has all of the modern amenities but has the feel of a country home, and it's full of beautiful Asian antiques and art. And lastly, upon arriving on Monday, all of the stress of wedding planning seemed to go away as we sat by the lake together and took in the peaceful, quiet surroundings.
If you want a wedding that people will remember for years to come, we highly recommend Spruce Lake Farm.
