Nestled in the scenic rolling hills of the Hudson Valley is Colonial Terrace, an exquisite mid-nineteenth 10 acre estate dedicated solely to the art of fine social and corporate catering.
Historical research traces the origins of Colonial Terrace to the Civil War Era, although the region itself occupies a significant place in earlier colonial development. The Mansion was built by members of the Simpson Family whose heirs are still involved in business in New York City today.
The lush grounds allowed the estate to be used as a dairy farm for a short time until the house and property were sold to the Waterbury Family. Colonel and Mrs. Eugene Waterbury and their children lived there until 1945, at which time it was purchased by Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Levitz.
Under the Levitz Family stewardship, Colonial Terrace, as it was officially named, existed as a Country Inn. Guests from the Tri-state area were offered fine food, lodging, and entertainment during weekends, holidays, and vacations. A large day camp was part of the tradition for the local community.
With time, social catering evolved as the exclusive specialty of “The Mansion on the Hill.” Colonial Terrace continues to impress even the most discerning guests with its grand architecture, formal gardens, interesting décor and gracious hospitality.
The family and staff at Colonial Terrace continue to assist customers, both on and off premise, with careful attention to every detail, assuring perfect orchestration from ceremony to celebration.
Whatever the size, theme, entertaining style, or location, a Colonial Terrace reception will become your memory of a lifetime.
