"This is the wedding to end all weddings!” “This is the best wedding I’ve ever been to!” “I can’t even get married now after going to this wedding because there’s no way to compete with this!” These are just a few of the compliments my husband and I received from our guests during our May 19 wedding at Mountain View Manor in Glen Spey, NY. If you select MVM as your wedding venue, you and your guests will feel like you are having an elaborate party at your family’s private country estate. Whisk your guests away for a weekend of serenity and fun. The food is fresh and delicious, the venue is beautiful, and the service is beyond accommodating. You will enjoy crystal glassware, premium beer on tap, and endless gorgeous backdrops for your wedding photos. Your guests do not want to go to a “wedding factory,” nor do they want to have to worry about driving from place to place during your wedding day. Give them a mini-vacation close to home where your ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, after party, and overnight accommodations are all in the same place. The spacious MVM has separate areas for all of these components to keep your guests interested and amazed. I sincerely recommend the MVM to even the most discriminating brides and grooms without the slightest reservation. "

"My husband and I both agree that we couldn't have chosen a better location for our wedding (10.30.10)! From the moment we stepped onto Mountain View Manors property we knew it was a perfect fit for us. We held our cocktail hour at the mansion - it was intimate cozy yet elegant - all the things we were looking for! We then took our 130 guests down to the Black Sea Ballroom for our reception! Jaws dropped when they walked into the room! From the tablecloths and chair covers to the crystals and draping hanging from the chandeliers it was the most beautiful room I have ever seen! I had more compliments on the food and service and my guests are calling Mouantain View a "hidden gem"! Thanks to James and Orest our wedding was more than we could have EVER imagined! I would highly recommend Mountain View to ANY bride! You won't be disappointed - the team of professionals will go above and beyond to make sure your day is perfect! "
"My wedding at MountainView Manor in October of 2009 was absolutely fantastic. The manor provided an intimate, unique setting that allowed us to have a memorable event that our guests are still talking about. Whether we were mingling with our guests on the dance floor, out on the decks enjoying the scenery or curled up on one of the couches in front of the fireplace, there seemed to be a place for everyone to enjoy. Everyone at MountainView bent over backwards to give us the night we wanted, even when that meant letting us have a Rock Band party in the Blue Room... it was truly a night to remember!"
"The MountainView Manor team was wonderful to work with and left no detail unattended. My guests commented repeatedly on how friendly and responsive the staff was during the reception, and the venue for the ceremony was breathtaking. Anyone who is in search of a romantic, elegant, and memorable location for their wedding would be crazy not to consider MountainView. From the moment your guests pull onto the grounds, they are swept into a fantasy. And the accommodations for bride & groom are splendidly private. Our wedding was intimate, yet madrigal and celebratory; it was sophisticated without pretension. It was, quite simply, perfect."
"Thank you for making my daughter's shower such a beautiful evening. I was so thrilled to be in the mansion, and I was hoping everything else would be as good as the building itself. You surpassed my expectations. The food was wonderful, the servers couldn't have been more attentive and all of my guests were terribly impressed with the Ardmore. I was happy to have displayed a local jewel that so many locals didn't know was there."
"MountainView Manor was THE perfect location for our wedding offering an elegant venue in a scenic country setting. It truly is a destination wedding that is close to home. Our families and wedding party loved spending the weekend in the beautiful Ardmore Mansion for the weekend. The vast wooded property and nearby lake offered amazing backdrops for our photos. The owner, Orest, and all of the vendors and staff were so accommodating and easy to work with. The food served in generous portions at cocktail hour and for dinner was so delicious! Our guests are still raving about their entire experience at our wedding. We would highly recommend The Mountain View to anyone planning a wedding. They will go above and beyond to make your special day unforgettable! "

"My husband and I cannot thank the MountainView Manor enough for doing such a wonderful job at our wedding! Not only did we have an absolutely fabulous time, but we had many, many guests come up and tell us that it was the best wedding they had ever been to. We only received tremendous feedback. The service from Orest, James, and the staff was top-notch. They did an outstanding job! Anytime we needed something, we had it before we even had time to ask for it. I remember on a few occasions that my husband would ask for a glass of champagne, and before he even returned, I already had a glass in hand. That type of service really made us feel so special. We really appreciated their hard work and courtesy. The day went about as smoothly as we could have hoped for (even the weather was perfect!). The food and drink was great and plentiful. Certainly, nobody complained about leaving hungry or sober :-) The MountainView Manor helped to make our day so memorable. We will definitely recommend the MountainView Manor to anyone we know getting married.."

"Our wedding was 6/11/11. I found Mountain View Manor 3 years ago while working for a local radio station and had kept it in the back of my mind for when my now husband popped the question. I knew immediately where I wanted to have my wedding reception when the proposal happened in 2009. The simple elegance of the Manor is what drew me in; not over done in any way, simply beautiful and elegant. My husband and I had the time of our lives and the staff couldn’t have been more helpful. Orest is simply the best and very helpful! James surprised me with little details like candles on the mantle in the ballroom and draping from chandelier to chandelier. Additionally, I have heard nothing but good things from our guests regarding food, service and overall awe at the Manor and its history. Overall 6 second review: Food AMAZING, Service Above Par!, Décor romantic & elegant. You will not be disappointed in the Mountain View Manor!"
"I want to start off by saying that MountainView Manor was an absolute GEM and our wedding was more than we could have ever asked for! We found MountainView on the knot and we planned a tour to see the grounds with the general manager, Orest. Orest was awesome, absolutely awesome. Orest helped us be as creative as we wanted and worked with us to add our unique touches to the whole day.We loved all that MountainView had to offer -- beautiful scenary, big ballroom, attached bar for an afterparty, huge picturesque patio for cocktail hour and a wonderful outdoor setting for the ceremony. We had our rehersal dinner there (everyone loved the food), the ceremony (everyone thought it decorated perfectly), reception (food was great, service was awesome), after-party (bartenders stayed as late as we wanted them to!) and goodbye brunch (delicious again!) all on the grounds. I would highly recommend MountainView to anyone. Also, there is a ton of space on the grounds to sleep as well as in the area so you can make it a weekend getaway."

"My husband Matthew and I recently had our wedding reception at the Ardmore Mansion in Glen Spey, NY on October 15, 2011. The reception was FAR beyond our expectations. It was absolutely perfect! We held our cocktail hour in the mansion where our guests mingled and remarked on the beautiful architecture and the stunning grand stair case in the main lobby. The incredibly attentive staff passed hours devours and they were so welcoming to our guests. As the bridal party arrived and grouped to take pictures, the owner, Orest, immediately approached my husband and I to ask what we would like to drink throughout the night– and even kept a very nice bottle of champagne on reserve just for us! While were taking pictures one very attentive server followed us around with a tray of hours devours just for our liking! At the tail-end of the cocktail hour, we were approached to lead our guests into the ballroom for dinner. They wanted Matthew and I to arrive first for a sneak-peak. They had a golf-cart waiting outside and as our guests flowed from the mansion to the ballroom we sped by beeping the horn! It was a big laugh had by all. The ballroom was absolutely breath taking. J-Angelo, the wedding planner, and his awesome staff transformed this room into a dream – and I’m not one of those girls to watch “My Fair Wedding” but let me tell you they could have filmed an episode there! Aside from setting the ambiance, J-Angelo was there for my every need and even saved the day as my bustle broke three times. My girls couldn’t get it to stick – he secured it within five minutes and I danced the night away! We have received nothing but kudos from our friends and family. So many people were just amazed by the whole experience and EVERYONE raved about the cake and the food. Ellie made the most ELLIGANT cake we have ever seen and she was there to cut and serve and just be on hand to make sure the entire evening flowed. Head Chef Tim and his AWESOME team laid out the most beautiful, savory stations with food a-plenty! In fact, our friends booked a karaoke after party in the mansion pub and Tim packed up food to send over for our after party! Truly exceptional professional service, I cannot thank them enough. If we could give fifty stars, we would give fifty-one. "
