"Both Old Drovers Inn & the adjacent Preston Barn are beautiful locations for spending a wedding weekend. The management and catering staff were easy to work with & very accommodating as we were moving through the planning process. The newly built barn is gorgeous, inside and out - we had a lot of compliments from guests about the venue. Right across from the buildings is a lush, green space perfect for the woodsy feel I was going for as well. Food and drinks were incredible: the rehearsal dinner, reception and day-after brunch. Also got many compliments on this aspect by both our wedding party and guests, great job guys!! Still dreaming about an amazing day they helped put together for us! :)"

"We had the first of all weddings at the Preston Barn on May 20th, 2017 and were blown away by the overall experience. The venue itself was exactly what we were looking for in terms of food, atmosphere, scenery and overall experience. Jim, Everett and the rest of the staff were nothing but helpful while planning and organizing our wedding-we couldnt praise them enough. As a wedding venue we couldnt fault anything. The food was out of this world and all our guests complimented on the quality of food. There were many options to choose from and the buffet presentation was beautiful. We had full use of Old Drovers Inn, once the main venue wound down so we were able to keep the party going! The room we stayed in was great and our guests loved being able to relax in front of the fire pit enjoying a few more drinks. The venue played a huge part in the success of our weekend and the amount of our guests who are still talking about your venue is a testament to that. Thanks again to everyone at the Preston Barn! Love, Ashley and Kirby Judson."

"From the day we walked onto the grounds of the Old Drovers Inn my husband and I were treated by Stephanie, Erin and Everett like we were family. Stephanie was engaged, detailed and thorough with her responses and information she relayed to us throughout the process. The food has been raved about for MONTHS since our wedding day and me and my husband could not be happier. For us, specifically my husband, the Preston Barn and Old Drovers are a part of his history. Almost 30 years ago my husband’s parents purchased a piece of property in Dover Plains across from a Historic Bed and Breakfast built in the 18th Century. For years they would watch Owners change hands until the building fell into disrepair. Recently it landed in the capable hands of Jim and his talented team. Since being in Jim’s hands, the grounds transformed before my new family’s eyes. The old building was brought back to life very quickly and the Preston Barn was built to be the beautiful celebration space it is today...
We give the Preston Barn, Old Drovers Inn, Stephanie, Erin, Everett, Jim and the rest of his staff a 10/10, 5 stars, and 2 thumbs up. The love my new family has for the Old Drovers was shown back to us 10 fold!"

“From the day we first stepped on the grounds of the Preston Barn, we were blown away by the facilities and the options it presented us to create our perfect day. The facility was spacious and wonderfully connected to the outdoors for a truly beautiful, natural vibe. Stephanie and the rest of the staff members were extremely gracious and helpful at addressing our questions and needs. You will not find better food at any other wedding venue. Our guests could not stop talking about the venue and its natural beauty. You will not be disappointed having your wedding or event at the Preston Barn! Thank you for helping us create such a special day!“

“On July 7, 2018 I married my best friend at the most magical place, The Preston Barn at Old Drovers Inn! It was everything we could have dreamed of and more. Between the staff, views, and food, everything was beyond perfect. The staff was so detailed and listened to our every want and need. Stephanie was such a pleasure to have worked with through the entire process. She was on top of every detail leading up to the day of the event keeping us in order and on track of things, which was a HUGE help considering things get hectic days before. She is an incredible Coordinator! Helene was there for our special day, and she nailed it. She made sure our needs were taken care of and made sure we got to eat and that every detail went smoothly for us. OH, and the food! The food here is heavenly. We had a buffet of different foods. They even accommodated for our guests who were Gluten Free, how incredible! Not a single complaint from our guests, and the views were photo perfect! We were lucky enough to have a nice cool day in the 70's with low humidity, and it made for beautiful views. I can't express enough how incredible The Preston Barn at Old Drovers Inn are! I would choose them every time. Thank you to everyone who made our day so magical!”

“Our wedding at the Preston Barn at Old Drovers Inn was nothing short of amazing! From the day we stepped onto the grounds we knew this was the atmosphere we wanted for our wedding. The barn is newly-built and gorgeous on the inside and out. The barn is surrounded by lush, green grounds and the clearing near the woods was the perfect spot for our ceremony. Stephanie and her crew truly helped make our wedding so special and they were so accommodating and responsive throughout the entire planning process. The food was also absolutely incredible at the rehearsal dinner/cocktail hour/reception. We did a family style menu at the reception and received so many positive compliments from our guests. We also rented the inn and carriage house across the street and it was such a fun weekend for our family and wedding party. Both houses have so much character and the service was great. We’ve gotten so many compliments from our guests on the overall atmosphere and we can’t thank Stephanie and everyone at the Old Drover’s Inn for making our wedding so special!!!”

“The Preston Barn was the very first wedding venue we looked at and we literally fell in love at first sight. It is one of the most unique and beautiful wedding venues in the Hudson Valley. The barn is equipped with everything you could want or need for a wedding and the food is amazing! My husband and I wanted a rustic venue for our October wedding and The Preston Barn was the perfect fit. The entire staff at the Old Drovers Inn and The Preston Barn were wonderful to work with and made our entire wedding weekend one we will long cherish. The inn itself is rich in history and the Carriage House is absolutely beautiful. Our family and bridal party had the pleasure of staying on site for the weekend and it couldn't have been more wonderful. The wait staff provided our guests with top notch service throughout the entire weekend, including at our rehearsal dinner and the brunch the morning of our wedding and the morning after. Our wedding guests raved about the food and drinks served during cocktail hour and during the reception. Stephanie and Randy are awesome! Stephanie was a tremendous resource throughout the planning process and Randy was a huge help with many last minute details that we needed ironed out. We can’t thank them enough as well as the entire staff at The Preston Barn for everything that was done for us to make our wedding perfect in every way. It is a moment in our lives that we wish we could relive over and over again. THANK YOU!”
