How can I possibly put into words the best day of my life? I am in the Hotel Business, an Event Planner for 10+ years. I know exactly what I want and I am HUGE on customer service. I was more concerned about my guest's experience then I was concerned with my own. But let me tell you, EVERY SINGLE PERSON, raved that my wedding was the most memorable wedding they had ever been too. The team at Hunter is by far one of the best around. From the minute I spoke with Debbie, I had an instant connection. It took only one conversation to know that I could trust her with my big day. I know how I like to work and how I like to operate (fast, efficient, and straight to the point) Debbie was the definition of my perfect wedding planner. Every question, every email was basically answered before I could press send. The hamster wheel, I like to call my head was operating 24/7 for 8 months and Debbie was there to put everything at ease. It made me question if Debbie was my soul mate! We did a menu tasting with Chef Tim. I highly recommend it. It was a great way to sample how wonderful the food was. He was a pleasure to work with and willing to think outside the box for creative menu options I wanted. He was so professional and you could tell he loves what he does. The turnover from Debbie to that Operation team was seamless. Kristen, the "day of" coordinator called and organized all my vendors the week prior. She ROCKS and doesn't miss a beat. I was able to 95% let go day of, because of her!! Ron, the maître de was phenomenal. Always on top of it. David, the FB Manager, runs a great team! The hotel staff was wonderful as well. The venue was gorgeous with so much character. Everything was executed flawlessly. The mountaintop views were absolutely spectacular. All of my guests were absolutely blown away and are sand are still talking about my wedding!! Job EXTREMELY well done! I love this entire crew and you will too!! Forever Grateful!

From Margie, Mother of the Bride:

“Debbie, I want to take the time to THANK YOU, David, and your staff for all that everyone did to help make Michelle and George's wedding the most special day of their lives. Everything went as planned...Everyone raved about the food, the location, the room, etc. Michelle, George, Jon and I all received comments that this was the best wedding they went to. The after party was very was so good to be able to kick back afterwards and enjoy the fire pit and relax with our friends and family and continue to celebrate with the Newlyweds. The wedding went sooooo fast and it was good to be able to continue to celebrate for several more hours. The set-up is so perfect with the reception having the best backdrop anyone could ask for with the mountains, the hotel is so convenient and the guests loved that they could just go up to their room after the festivities wound down. All in all, I could not have asked for anything better. I would recommend Hunter Mountain to anyone who would want to have their wedding there.”

From Janet & Bob, Parents of the Bride:

“We had the pleasure of having our daughter's wedding reception at the Copper Tree on Sept 1. I can't begin to tell you the compliments we have had on the setting, the rooms, and most importantly the food! The reception went beyond our dreams; the hors d’oeuvres were outstanding and everyone loved their dinner. Chef Tim did an outstanding job as did your staff; from the waiter who was sure to find me with a tray of coconut shrimp on the balcony to Tracy, who anticipated the bride's every need. Thank you also to the gentlemen who rearranged tables the night before the wedding (twice) to satisfy the bride and also to Debbie, who answered every question and email promptly! We were so pleased with all the details of the wedding. I honestly don't know how Tracy and Debbie deal with the stress of weddings so well on a regular basis. They were such a huge help! And kudos to Chef Tim for an outstanding job! Thank you to you and your staff for making our daughter's wedding such a special event.”

From Amber:

“Chad and I want to thank you and the rest of the Hunter Mountain crew and Kaatskill Mountain Club staff for an absolutely amazing wedding weekend. It was the most unbelievable experience of our lives. Our family and friends still talk about it saying it was the most beautiful and unique wedding they have ever been to. Chad and I were so amazed with the quality of service and attention we got that weekend. The food was AMAZING, the scenery was breathtaking, the staff was friendly, and you both made it happen. I never could have imagined how stressful planning a wedding would be. Especially planning one that was taking place 3 and a half hours away from where you live! And I have to say Tracy did an excellent job with keeping me calm that day and taking care of everything. It was a beautiful, spectacular, perfect day and weekend that Chad and I will forever remember and cherish.”

From Kathy, Mother of the Bride:

“Just a quick note to let you know how much we appreciate the wonderful service we rec'd this past weekend. Every detail was covered. I don't believe we could have received better attention anywhere. You really worked so well together and stayed on top of everything. It was really a pleasure working with all of you. You certainly made our stay and events at Hunter a true delight.”

From Rachel & Bryan:

“We can honestly say we weren’t expecting our wedding to be flawless, but at the end of the night, there wasn’t a single thing we would have changed. Hunter Mountain was the absolute perfect location for our dream wedding, and it was all made possible because of Debbie and her staff. We were lucky enough to have an absolutely beautiful day for our guests to ride the lift to the summit, and the echoes of our bagpiper off of the mountains will forever be engrained. From the clear blue skies, to the amazing food (kudos to the chef!), there was nothing that could have made our special day more perfect. People are still calling to tell us it was by far the best wedding they’ve ever attended and that they’ve never had so much fun. Thanks to Debbie and her team at Hunter for accommodating all of our requests and really making this unforgettable!”

From Bernadette, Mother of the Groom:

“Just wanted to drop a note and shout out a BIG THANK YOU!!! Thomas and Julie's Wedding Day was Magical and Flawless...Everyone that I invited said that it was, hands down, the BEST Wedding they had ever attended!!! And I completely believe them!!! The food was delicious; the ambiance dreamy, the service incredible...The whole day was AMAZING!!! Tracy discreetly and oh-so-professionally helped my guests all evening... Thanks Again Debbie!!! You and the whole team ROCK!!! Love and Peace…”

From Brian:

“Dana and I would like to thank you for everything for our wedding this weekend. We literally couldn't have asked for a better staff for a wedding. Debbie, Dana and I see you as the ROCK of the weddings at Hunter and they without a doubt have the right person in charge. From a year ago to the day of our wedding you have answered all of our questions and demanded all of our needs were taken care of. Tracy, you were AMAZING! You're attention to everything we needed was awesome. You never stopped for us and were with us throughout our stay at Hunter. The two of you as a team are remarkable - THANK YOU!!! The Kaatskill Mountain Club was amazing as well. Jimmy was really there for us when we really needed someone at the hotel to step up. Tony helped us all weekend…the wait staff and our chef were the best you could possibly have. Executive chef TIm. we couldn't stop talking about how impressive your food is but even more how great of a person you are. You are the BEST at what you do Tim. You guys gave our guests and us memories we will never forget. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!”

From Susan, Mother of the Groom:

“This is a stellar operation. The whole team worked seamlessly, from the Director and Wedding Coordinator to the Wait-Staff. 230+ sit down dinner meals served at correct temperature, courteously, efficiently without table delays by a genuinely polite, smiling and responsive crew. That was true also in the resort restaurant, Van Winkles, where family and friends who were on premises gathered at various times. The food is delicious and well-presented. [There wasn't even a hint of clanking dishes and silverware.] The lead staff worked with the bridal party MC and DJ, making everything smooth and fun. The flow of our evening was absolutely perfect! The wedding discounted inn rooms were upscale, convenient and clean. The reservations flexibility was much appreciated, especially on a holiday weekend. The whole resort makes a great venue. And great value.”

From Rosemary & Don, Parents of the Bride:

“Debbie - Thank you so much for everything you and Tracy did to make the wedding a success. All the guests raved about the venue, the accommodations, the service, the food - everything. We all had such a good time. There are so many people who need to be thanked for making this event such a success - Angie, the hotel staff, Dave, Ed, Frank, Tim and lots more people I don't know by name. So, please tell me how to go about expressing our extreme pleasure with the whole experience of having a wedding at Hunter Mountain. It was awesome!!!”

From Stephanie:

“The staff at Hunter Mountain is seriously amazing, they took care of everything and were so calm and helpful. Also, the food was INCREDIBLE! Chef Tim made braised short ribs over mashed potatoes at our request and they were the best we’ve ever had and many of our guests said the same. Even the late-night snack hour ended up being delicious, many guests said the sliders and grilled cheese were the best they’d had. One guest posted on facebook that night, “eating the best grilled cheese of my life!” Everyone raved about the food and the beauty of the setting up there. We’ve heard from many guests that our wedding was the best wedding they’d ever been to and a lot of that had to do with the comfort and ease of having a wedding at Hunter Mountain as well as the absolutely breathtaking setting in the Catskills and honestly, whether the ceremony is inside or up on the summit, I don’t think it really matters, it is such a great venue to have your wedding.”

From Jen & Mike:

“Thank you for making our special day possible. You made it so easy and enjoyable for us. Thank you for always being honest, trustworthy, and straightforward with us. Everyone said it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to! The food was amazing; the appetizers received lots of praise, and the dinner worked out wonderfully!”

From Cathy & Alfred (Parents of the Bride):

“We want to thank you and perhaps you can pass it on to everyone involved who made Lori’s wedding such a delightful affair. The food at the reception was delicious as it was for the breakfast the day after. The new dance floor is delightful. Your employees were efficient, helpful, and had a ready smile. Several relatives who stayed there overnight said they were coming back next year and spend a few days. Thank you for being so nice to Lori and Victor
and making their wedding day so special and memorable.”

From John & Mary (Parents of the Groom):
