Weddings + Events

at The Sablewood

Because love knows no season.


We host stunning weddings year-round at The Sablewood, taking advantage of each beautiful season upstate New York offers. During the warm weather months most couples choose our quaint outdoor ceremony location facing the mountain followed by outdoor cocktails. On colder days or in case of inclement weather The Sablewood has been designed with the versatility of giant barn doors that can be opened and closed to create separate spaces between ceremony and cocktail hour. Full climate control ensures guests are kept cool in the heat of summer and toasty warm in the winter months.

Your event tells your story.

Our goal is for your wedding or event to be everything you imagine and more. It should reflect your unique personality and vision and we will assist with everything from vendor selection to room layout and setup to help bring your vision to life. We will also be here in the background keeping our barn and farm grounds meticulously maintained to display the timeless beauty of this historic property.

We invite you to be our guest.

“At the end of the day people won’t remember what you said or did, they will remember how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou

We take this thoughtful sentiment to heart in every aspect of what we do. You bring the love story and we will delight your guests with every detail of design, friendly smiles and welcoming hospitality.

The Sablewood beautifully accommodates up to 250 for dining with space for a large dance floor. Our room design allows for flexibility for events of all sizes from 20 to 250. Even the farm tables were created with beauty and guest comfort in mind as timber from our farm was used to make the trestle style table base and farm table tops. The trestle design allows space for our large comfortable wooden chairs. This is furniture designed for your home dining room and we choose it so that, well, you feel at home.

Enjoy the simple charm of times past in a thoughtfully modernized event space.
