With unique spaces to dance, dine, lounge, and mingle, why settle for a cookie-cutter event space when you can create the unique soirée of your wildest dreams at Black Walnut Farm? Get ready to make epic memories that will last a lifetime.


When you have your wedding at Black Walnut Farm, you’re a part of 275 years of history! The property was established in 1747 as one of the first ten settlements in the county; and our barn was restored in partnership with the New York State Historic Preservation Program to revive its original 1891 beauty. Your new beginning will forever be a part of the story of the farm– and to immortalize the occasion, we plant a tree on the grounds for every couple that ties the knot at Black Walnut Farm. We host an annual ‘Farm-ily Reunion’ party to stay in touch with our couples— you can visit your tree as it grows!


Your own ‘destination wedding’— just 100 miles outside of New York City!

We’re a convenient 2-hour drive from NYC– and also easily accessible by Amtrak train (from Penn Station) and Trailways bus (from Port Authority). Our property feels secluded and remote– but we’re only 5 minutes from downtown Saugerties, close to all local amenities and conveniences, and the fun of antique shops, bars, and restaurants to explore in town. There are six large chain hotels within eight miles of the farm, as well as numerous small inns and vacation rentals for guest accommodations.

Our renovated and fully air-conditioned Dutch stone farmhouse (sleeps 8) is included in your weekend rental for a resort-style feel– you truly never need to leave the grounds. We provide additional amenities like stocking the fridge in advance of your weekend and providing local wines for the bridal suite. There are numerous picturesque locations throughout the house for your getting-ready photos; and we include the use of our private fire pit and hot tub for instant stress relief. Our property is available for you to stay from Thursday until the Monday following your wedding, so get ready to settle in and enjoy your own private Hudson Valley Bed and Breakfast experience, just steps away from your wedding festivities!

Black Walnut Farm is just 45 minutes from the Albany airport.


Create the custom event of your dreams: we allow you to choose your own vendors and personalize every touch to make your event as unique as you are. From elegant farm-to-table soirées under the stars, to casual weekends of food trucks and lawn games, we provide the canvas, and we want YOU to add your signature. There’s no limit to what you can create at Black Walnut Farm. And while you’re welcome to bring in your own event pros, we’ll also introduce you to our incredible network of fantastic, imaginative vendors eager to bring your ideas to life.

Owning this property was our dream, and we have put thought and care into every detail. We’re personally invested in making each event a smashing success, and we embrace every couple as new members of the Black Walnut Farm family (errr…. ‘Farm-ily?’).

We’re not a big corporation or ‘wedding factory’. Genuine hospitality is at the core of everything we do; we will work with you and your vendors to ensure you feel at home here with our highly personalized, inclusive, warm service.

We want you to feel like you’re hosting your own backyard wedding… if your backyard happened to be a historic country estate!
