Boutique Weddings & Events


Escape the city to the historic hamlet of Jefferson in Upstate New York and immerse yourself in over 30 acres of photogenic countryside. Once an active horse farm, Catskill Ranch remains vastly untouched from the 19th century. Modern amenities have been added amongst the old wood & stone to provide comfort and convenience.

Our main hall is a converted horse stable, elegantly repurposed into a 3,300 sqft industrial reception area. As you make your entrance from the rose garden, you pass under our grand chandelier towards a 40x20 elevated patio that extends out to rolling hills and endless forests. This open concept pulls in the famed beauty of the Catskills into every corner of the barn.


Nature has blessed us with an abundance of beautiful settings for your special moment. When you walk down our ceremony path, you'll pass by wildflowers and cross an old wooden bridge before emerging into an open meadow. Family and friends will be anticipating your entrance as you walk up to the ceremony arch. Other popular ceremony locations include our forest, lakefront and rose garden.

Cocktail Area

Enjoy drinks and appetizers in our 10,000 sqft. welcome area, featuring a circular rose garden, basket swings and a shaded cabana-style lounge with full bar. Adjacent areas for guests to explore include a half acre lake, a 15,000 sq ft recreational area with games & entertainment, glowing bonfires and miles of groomed hiking trails in our forest.


Included with venue rental is your own private farmhouse with bridal and groom suites. Built in 1900, this modest farmhouse was renovated with comfortable amenities and maintains most of its original character. There's a full kitchen, large bathroom with deep soaking tub, a dining room and parlor stocked with snacks and libations. The farmhouse can comfortably sleep 7 guests and there are plenty of charming bed & breakfasts in and around town for those choosing to spend the night.


We have partnered up with amazing vendors crafting locally sourced, authentic farm-to-table cuisine. Fresh, seasonal ingredients grown by our neighbors get transformed into healthy, great tasting food. View our preferred vendors.
