The Casual, Romantic Elegance of the Roxbury Barn

For some couples, a glitzy venue in New York City isn’t their ideal location for a wedding ceremony.  Rather, they look forward to a ceremony and celebration that is enveloped by the natural beauty of the Empire state.  For, once you leave the five boroughs of the Big Apple, there are extraordinary choices for wedding locations including the beaches of the Long Island Sound, the rustic beauty of the Adirondack Mountains, and the elegant charm of the vineyards in the Finger Lakes.   For such couples, I highly recommend the Roxbury Barn, tucked in the Catskill Mountains, just north of the City.  The property is lovingly tended by my friends Casper and Roger, gentlemen with exquisite taste and an eye for detail.

The property was established by Mississippi boat Captain William Patterson in the 1850s, as a summer home. Set on 42 acres, the three story Roxbury Barn is perfectly complemented by two open fields, four ponds, a rambling brook, and a natural forest.  The barn and its surroundings function as a perfect canvass for the ceremony of your dreams.  The barn simply oozes charm, creating a handsome stage for a stylish affair.  The large fields offer the option to erect a big tent for ceremony, dinner, dancing and more.  Likewise, the luscious grounds provide a backdrop for a glorious wedding in the open air surrounded by nothing more than trees, mountains, good people, good food and good music.

So beautiful is the location, it was used for the filming of the Oscar nominated film You can Count on Me.  The rustic beauty of this venue and top-flight service of the staff will make the journey to the Roxbury Barn well worth the trip.  For more details or to schedule a visit to the Roxbury barn email or call 607.326.4874.
