"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!"
