About Owls Hoot Barn

Owls Hoot Barn is an upstate NY, Hudson Valley Region, venue that provides a relaxed low key environment to host any number of special occasions in a traditional historic barn built in the early 1800’s.

We sit at the foot of the Catskill Mountains and are just a short drive to popular cities like Hudson, Catskill, and Athens while still being just around 2 hours from NYC.

The main barn accommodates dining and dancing for around 180 on the main level, or you could choose to utilize the attached pavilion on the lower ground level to host dining for over 200 guests and use the barn for dancing and other activities.

Our rustic barn is considered a bank barn which means it's built into a hill and has two levels, each which has ground level access. The upstairs hay loft with 35ft ceiling and all original timbers is the perfect reception and dining space, while the downstairs is well equipped as a lounge area which makes a perfect photo booth or bar area, play movies or create a special place of your own using your vision.

The barn comes equipped with 7 bathrooms (including a handicap bathroom), twinkle and bistro lighting, all new 400 amp electric service, commercial fans that force heat down in the cooler temps and pull hot air out in the warmer weather and we can include industrial AC during the summer months. The barn is fully New York State Code Compliant with fire suppression/sprinklers systems.

With over 20 years in the industry we have curated period pieces, furniture, and decor items that if rented by a specialty company would cost well over our venue fee. We share these items as included to help our clients have a more transparent view of what a wedding will cost...and to save you cost! Scan pictures on our website www.owlshootbarn.com and see all that comes included with the venue!

The grounds are quaint and rustic in vibe with both open field areas for playing games and ancient trees for a more forest secluded feel. There are various options for an outdoor ceremonies along the willow tree lined creek that runs through the property and with our pavilion you never have to worry about what to do for a 'rain plan' because ceremonies can be held underneath without the need to have a tent on reserve 'just in case' it rains..

We can offer onsite accommodations in various vacation rental houses and cabins hosting over 30 friends and family from Wednesday to Sunday. These accommodations are additional cost to the venue fee.

Additionally with just a short 19-20 minute drive there are swanky motor lodges, B&B's, guesthouses and only 5 minutes away are 2 nationally recognized hotel chains.

We offer flexibility to the DIY client, as well as premiere full scale coordination and event management services for those interested. If you are looking for a relaxed environment that feels more like inviting family and friends up to your own country farm we know we can help bring that vision to life.

We look forward to collaborating with you on your special event!

Picture Perfect

Owls Hoot Barn or OHB is a picture perfect barn wedding venue. The property is absolutely stunning and Kerri the venue owner is a joy to work with. While a bit more DIY than other traditional venues, ... Read more it's all worth it. We could not have picked a better venue to have our special day at. Thank you Kerri!

Experience of a Lifetime

(May 18th Wedding): There are truly not enough words to describe how incredible our wedding experience was at Owls Hoot Barn. This venue is honestly the most special, intimate, and unique place we ... Read more could've ever imagined. Firstly, what drew us in and really sets this venue apart right off the bat from other barn venues is the fact that you get the opportunity to stay right on the property from Wednesday-Sunday of your wedding weekend. This was huge for us, as it really turned into a full weekend experience that we got to really enjoy (versus feeling like 1 day that was over in the blink of an eye). This gave us time in the days leading up to really decide on how we wanted to utilize and decorate the spaces, etc. which made the day-of so much smoother and more relaxed. The possibilites are endless here, and you have access to TONS of decor and furniture items. There are multiple other gorgeous homes in addition to the bridal cabin ("Owls Nest"), that I recommend having family/bridal parties stay in. It was a lot of fun having our family all right there with us, and not worrying about transportation, not to mention the accomodations are so dreamy and comfortable. You really have so many options on the property to really make your wedding unique and your own. We lucked out with amazing weather, but should it rain, the pavilion/backup rain plan is still gorgeous, and no need to worry about renting any tents or anything! I don't even know where to start with the venue owner, Kerri. SHE IS A GEM. Honestly, she is a true force. She is SO friendly, organized, and helpful if all of your planning needs. She also goes above and beyond not only with recommendations for vendors, but in following up and working closely with them to get things done. Kerri is very detail-oriented, and will make sure no stone is left unturned. I knew I'd have a great wedding day, but I really had no clue just how absolutely perfect and beyond my expectations everything would turn out. Our guests absolutely RAVED about how much they loved the property and the barn, and are even still talking about it weeks later. What an experience of a lifetime. Endless amounts of gratitude from the Joyces to Kerri and the entire Owls Hoot team! All of you made this the best wedding we could've ever dreamt of. THANK YOU!

What a Wonderful Experience

We could not have been happier with our experience at Owls Hoot Barn. From the moment we met with Kerri, we knew that she would take great care of us, and she was one of the main reasons we decided to ... Read more to choose the OHB over another barn venue in the area. Boy did we make the right decision. Everything was absolutely beautiful, the venue had all the decorations we could ever have wanted for my perfect Pinterest wedding, and the location is to die for. Everyone kept saying how unique and special our venue was, and that they wanted the "Adam and Cara special" for their own wedding. It wasn't just the beauty of the venue and perfection of the venue, but the experience as a whole. As part of our contract, we were able to come up on the Wednesday before our wedding, and relax before we had to finalize everything on Thursday and Friday. It felt like a mini getaway, and helped with overall stress of planning. Kerri is a master at what she does, and our parents raved at how seamless she made things. We could not have done it without her, and everything went off without a hitch. I am so sad it is over, but am so glad we chose the Owl's Hoot Barn as our venue.
