The cocktail hour is held on the first floor in the Appalachian Ballroom and the reception is held in the Perkins Ballroom located on the second floor. If you were interested in having your wedding ceremony outside, the Hickory Terrace is a perfect place with beautiful views of Hessian Lake. We can accommodate up to 230 guests.

The Hudson Ballroom — Overlook Lodge is home to the Hudson Ballroom that features unforgettable views of the Hudson River, Hessian Lake and the mountainside. This elegant ballroom can accommodate up to 180 guests.
