The Views at Mount Fuji, Hillburn
The Essentials: The Views at Mt. Fuji offers 47 acres of land on top of a mountain, including Japanese gardens, a patio and gazebo, and glass-enclosed rooms with a view guests will be in awe of.
The Rooms: A 17,500 sq ft ballroom (which can be divided into three separate areas) for indoor weddings and a patio with gazebo overlooking the grounds for outdoor events.
The Vibe: Natural and worldly. You get all of the lush grounds outside, as well as the Japanese objets d’art and Japanese gardens.
Cost: $90–$140 per person; the rental fee for the ceremony is $600 for 100 people or $1,000 for 200 people.
What’s Included: The above price includes a cocktail reception with five to six stations, a full dinner menu, room rental, open bar for five hours, wedding cake, Champagne, a choice of wines with dinner, and linens with chair covers and matching sashes.
Standout Features: There’s a reason this venue has “The Views” as part of its name. How many people get to have a full-scale wedding on a private mountaintop with lush vistas of the Ramapo Valley at every turn? In addition to Japanese artistic touches, all rooms have glass enclosures so that you can take in the sweeping views no matter where you are.
Best For: Formal or semiformal weddings are typical for this venue, but anyone looking for a spectacular view and plenty of backdrops for photos will love this location.
Book at Least: 12-15 months in advance.
