The Setting

Just an hour and a half from New York City, rests this small private estate, perfect for an intimate and memorable wedding weekend. The Topstone Chalet features a stunning Carriage House that provides a combination of event space and private guest quarters for your wedding weekend. The Carriage House has all of the modern amenities of comfort (heat/air conditioning, plumbing, wood burning fireplace, modern kitchen, laundry room) paired with the traditional old-world architecture of an early 1900s carriage barn. The four sets of carriage doors are fully-functional, so you can enjoy the property views and the indoor/outdoor vibe even on a rainy day. The Carriage House features 12 foot high ceilings and crisp white walls/trim and rustic wood flooring, a stunning backdrop for your wedding photos. The upper story features 3 queen size bedrooms with two bathrooms for your wedding weekend stay (for up to 6 guests). The original, vintage barn is also available as an additional rental space, and has been used for small ceremonies, cocktail hour, and bar service location. The Main House is private, but the 1914 French Normandy-style manor house provides a beautiful backdrop to your outdoor photos with unique architecture and dramatic arches and columns.
The property boasts gorgeous mature trees, a 100 year old hydrangea tree, endless stone walls, and a vast open front yard perfect for a tent or an al fresco wedding ceremony or reception dinner party. Host your outdoor wedding ceremony among the blossoming flower trees and then open the doors to the carriage house for a free-flowing reception. Place your reception tent right outside the carriage house and dance the night away with your closest family and friends by your side. Fire pit options are also available, please inquire. We also have some fun vintage artifacts and decor available for rent for your event, please inquire.
