My name is Drew owner of Next Level DJ's. I highly recommend Novella's! It is my personal favorite venue to work at in the Hudson Valley. The food and desserts are OUTSTANDING! The entire staff is fantastic to work with and really go out of their way to make your event extra special. I would highly recommend a visit. If you do book, you can rest easy that you will be taken care of every step of the way

I had my daughter's sweet 16 birthday party and this place was absolutely amazing. The food was great. Megan and all of the staff helped me organize all of the details and coordinating the breakdown of times for dancing,cake,dinner, etc... throughout the event in a fun and professional way. Pictures do not do justice you have to go and look for yourself. I highly recommend this place for any event.

Had my daughter's Sweet Sixteen party there, I just want to say it was "PERFECT". I highly recommend having any occasions there. The place is beautiful, the food is excellent. Location is great, near the thruway for those who need to find it in a split second. The owner Dawn, is an absolute sweetheart and very personable person. She will work with you with everything. I had two guest that were gluten free and she made sure they were able enjoy everything with all my other guest. I was very happy, so was my daughter and my guests. If you have a party to do, this is the place. SHOUTOUT TO DAWN: AWESOME TIME!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH.

My Best friend was married here. Beautiful venue and good food. The owner Brice was great and my friend couldn't say enough nice things about him.

I recently had my daughter's bat mitzvah at Novellas and it was outstanding!! From the very first meeting with Bryce and all the way through the details, the day could not have gone better.
We had the whole venue to ourselves, the room looked beautiful the staff was attentive and pleasant, and they all really worked with us to make it the best day - and it was!!
Thank you!!!!

Novella's will always have a special place in mine and my wife's heart. We came to a reception here years ago and were very impressed with the venue, seemingly how stress-free the bride and groom were, and we always kept it in the back of our mind for our special day. Fast-Forward, we met gentleman named Bryce as we were touring our own venues, I believe he's the General Manager, who was nothing short of outstanding. Professional, Direct...booking was so easy and he was very flexible for how we wanted our wedding planning. I won't bore you with the details in between that meeting and our wedding day but let's just say all our dreams came true. The reception was the most fun day of our lives. Bryce recommended a band that had everyone up and dancing, the food was outstanding (all while not being overly priced trying too hard...the people LOVED it), and the venue was genuinely spotless. I'm a neat freak and even I would eat off the floors (if I had to!).
I'd recommend Novella's to any and everyone.

As a wedding planner, I work at different venues almost every weekend, and my experience working at Novella's with Bryce and his amazing staff was simply wonderful. Super easy to work with, great communication, with a super friendly and nice staff, and wonderful food, Novella's was a top wedding venue for me! Absolutely recommend!

From the moment we arrived at Novella's in New Paltz, the process from booking, to planning, all the way through our wedding day was very seamless. We worked directly with Bryce, who was incredibly accommodating, helpful, and efficient. He was very responsive to all of our many, many questions and always made us feel taken care of. Novella's provided us with a plethora of vendors to help ease the wedding planning process. The ones we ended up booking were also incredible. The space itself is beautiful and elegant. They have an additional bridal suite that was able to accommodate our very large wedding party. On our wedding day, Bryce was around all day meeting every last minute need and request. It ended up raining and he provided many umbrellas for guests that needed it. It was a very comfortable and friendly environment. The additional staff was extremely professional as well and our guests raved about how great they were. We can't recommend Novella's enough!

This is an amazing place for a Wedding. Bryce the manager was great and very quick to respond. The price is very affordable, but the location and ambience seems like it should be worth a lot more. The photo opportunities are plentiful to get amazing shots with a lot of different backgrounds. All and all, myself and everyone I know who has worked with Novellas end up very happy with this venue and we recommend it to all of our engaged friends or friends who are looking to host any event.
