Shakespeare on the Hudson is unlike any other destination in the Hudson Valley. With its 270° of unspoiled views of the Hudson River's east bank, sprawling great lawn, and wedding gazebo, the site can accommodate up to 500 guests.

Whether you're planning the ultimate destination wedding, a private theatrical performance, or a family retreat to the mountains, the grounds at Shakespeare on the Hudson are ideal for all types of functions, ceremonies and events.





Shakespeare on the Hudson is one of the most romantic retreats for creating the perfect destination wedding in the Hudson Valley. We have ample space to host both the ceremony and the reception, as well as lodge up to 40 guests on-site. Because we want your wedding to be as memorable as you do, we can even guide you to local businesses that we know and trust (such as wedding planners, photographers, videographers, etc.) who will help you bring your vision to life.

We can assist you in planning your dream wedding in many ways, and the more information you provide us with, the better. We want to hear all about what your wedding plans are, so fill out our contact form by clicking below.
