aramoor is a home for celebrations where all of the elements of successful events — an idyllic location; delicious, sustainable food; and attentive service — combine to conjure a magical atmosphere. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Caramoor is a valuable cultural resource that encompasses 90 acres of woodland trails and spectacular gardens in Katonah, NY. A range of beautiful settings are available to rent for weddings, life events, family celebrations, meetings and retreats, photo and film shoots, corporate appreciation functions and more. Caramoor is the legacy of Walter and Lucie Rosen, who established the estate and built a great house as its centerpiece. Their legendary musical evenings were the seeds of today’s multi-genre music programming that is heard year-round on the estate. Located in the greater metropolitan New York area, Caramoor is accessible to all area airports, highways, Metro-North trains, and hotels. Take a look at our outstanding venues and find the best fit for your affair. 1

A collection of 30-foot evergreens lines the south side of the lawn, framing the twin statues of Zephyr, the Greek god of the west wind, and Flora, the Roman goddess of flowers. The romantic, rose-covered gazebo serves as a stunning focal point for visitors on the gently sloped lawn, and guests may relax by the Iris & Peony Garden at the north end of Tapestry Hedge. Sound, power, and additional tenting are available so that you can plan the event you want and enjoy the outdoors. Capacity: 400 for cocktails; 300 for theater-style seating 3
