I am looking to have a wedding next Spring (Hoping for May 2009). There will be approximately 115-150 people. I am looking for a unique location within one hour from the city; I prefer something on the water and would like a place that also offers on site accomodation(if possible) . The key is I really do not want to spend more then $125/ person (including tax and grat) though. So far, I have come across Highlands Country Club ($110 pp) and am going to see that on Saturday.
I have also looked into Mohonk and Harvest on the Hudson, scenery wise they are both great but the only con is they do not do night weddings. My crowd likes to party so the place will have to be amenable to that. I am also open to reception ideas in the city but do not think that it is feasable at this price point. Any b & b's or Mansions or Estates or restaurants even that can be recommended would be greatly appreciated! My top 2 criterion (besides price) is great food and nice scenery.
Again any all feedback is appreciated. Thanks :)
