Corporate Meetings & Retreats


Our 75-acre estate, nestled on the banks of the Hudson River, offers a unique atmosphere for your business meeting needs. As a full service resort property, we will tailor your experience to meet the business at hand – whether it is a “Day Space” or an overnight retreat. Tiffany & Co., as well as Shape magazine, are among the corporations to have reserved the entire inn as their private retreat for a new spin on brainstorming sessions.

Buttermilk Falls Inn & Spa is conveniently located just 75 miles northwest of New York City, minutes from the Metro-North Railway in Poughkeepsie, NY, home to Marist College, Vassar College, The Culinary Institute of America and 25 minutes from West Point USMA.

To accommodate the most discerning CEO or Executive Board, Buttermilk’s overnight accommodations include well-appointed, ‘country-chic’ rooms in our historic Inn, private lofts and spacious 2, 3, 4 or 5 bedroom guesthouses. Each space includes a fireplace, television, and views of the gardens or the majestic Hudson River. Overnight stays include a hearty gourmet breakfast served in our Inn’s glass enclosed dining room overlooking the beautiful grounds and river beyond. Our banquet staff will be happy to serve this breakfast within your meeting space, as well.
