Nestled along the easterly banks of the wide Hudson River rests the historic town of Rhinebeck, NY, an idyllic Dutchess County destination. Throughout the year, this picturesque community allures travelers of all types, including couples, families, and large groups. In fact, Rhinebeck is home to one of the premier corporate retreats near NYC. The Delamater Inn, a 176-year-old marvel, has retained its old-world charm while undergoing modest renovations. Today, groups utilize this unique destination for weddings, fundraisers, conferences, dinner seminars, and, of course, corporate retreats. Together, the team here at Beekman Arms & Delamater Inn covers everything from catering to preparation and overnight accommodations. We also keep a handy list of potential team-building activities for such occasions.
The Conference Center and Meeting Rooms
As one of the top-reviewed corporate retreats near NYC, we’re continuously enhancing the guest experience at Beekman Arms & Delamater Inn, the oldest inn in America. Recent enhancements included the renovation of our on-site conference center, which ideally seats 25 to 30 people. The conference center features a fireplace, a spacious porch, French doors, and the latest, state-of-the-art equipment, including an oversized projector. For larger retreats, we typically set up the Wayfarer Ballroom, our ultra-popular wedding venue. The Wayfarer Ballroom holds anywhere from 28 to 150, depending on the seating arrangement. It’s proximity to The Tavern is a huge selling point for many teams. The intimate Beekman Room, meanwhile, is a boardroom-style gathering space that includes an adjacent library-cocktail lounge combo.
