  • I could not have been happier with Bourne Mansion. Miriam and Ben were great to work with and always got back to me right away with any questions. They were so helpful. And I cannot even begin to explain how WONDERFUL Steve was on the day of the wedding. He made my day so stress free and I had full trust that if I was forgetting to do something he would be right on top of it. I did not have to think about anything. Before I chose to have my reception at Bourne Mansion I attended a wedding there and even as a guest I could see that he was on top of everything. He was so professional and very funny at the same time. The place is gorgeous and the food is great. I could not have asked for more. Thank you so much Steve, Miriam and Ben!

  • The Bourne Mansion was everything we hoped for and more. The staff was attentive, professional, and thorough. There was no detail overlooked and nothing we wanted for. It seemed as though they would have jumped through hoops had we asked them too. I couldn't be happier with our experience.

  • The Bourne Mansion is perhaps one of the most spectacular places that a person could get married. The grounds are beautiful, there is a view of the water, and the mansion is kept up spectacularly. They did a number of updates before my wedding and I was so excited for the changes. They added a few permanent bars, updated the driveway, recarpeted the stairs. The feedback from my guests alone on just how the place looked would have been enough to convince me and my husband that we made the right decision. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Ben from lessings worked with us on our numbers when we had a large hiccup with some family members. He was absolutely wonderful! Steve is the Maitre'd and we were worried about him from some previous reviews but whoever said that Steve was not AMAZING was probably crazy. He was so helpful from giving us helpful suggestions about table arrangements, bridal party lineup, and telling us exactly what to do during the wedding. Because who re... Read more

  • Cannot say enough about the staff at the Bourne Mansion from the very beginning of planning to the day of the wedding everything was perfect. I worked with Ben Nierenberg in booking the site and all the details. I did this all long distance and Ben was great. He answered all my calls and made suggestions on additional items that we were having. On the day of the wedding Steve was our maître d and what a pleasure he was. He helped us with seating arrangement and it was perfect. Everything about the Venue and the staff could not have been more perfect. The food was to die for and people are still talking about the Seafood Bar which is well worth it. Everyone like that each table was served all at once a great touch. We had our after party there and it was a perfect ending to a perfect day. I cannot begin the thank the entire staff for a perfect day on my daughter's wedding!

  • My wedding was originally booked at another location but due to Hurricane Sandy my wedding was cancelled. Just two weeks before the date I was on the grind to find a new venue. As soon as I heard Bourne had the date open my sorrows turned to joy. I worked with both Miriam and Jason, both of which were wonderful! They really worked with me and made my wedding dreams come true. Bourne is the perfect wedding spot! This isn't the average venue. Most places are "nice" but Bourne is unforgettable. My friends and family are still raving about the wedding to this date. I set the bar high for my newly engaged friends! If you don't look at Bourne your missing out! While the prices may be higher then you want to spend, you only get married once and you want it to be the most magical day of your life! It's worth the extra money!

  • The staff at Bourne Mansion are nothing but professional. They go above and beyond with their service. I cannot say enough great things about the staff and facility. My wedding was the Friday after Sandy and the night before our wedding they were able to get a generator and had it up and running in time for our ceremony. They did everything they could to ensure the day was perfect. I highly recommend this venue

  • I don't even know where to begin... I guess I should start by saying I literally had the wedding of my dreams. The Bourne Mansion is soooo beautiful and all of our guests are still calling to tell us how amazing this venue was. As soon as I walked in there I knew I had to have it there. The food was phenomenol!!! All the guests said so as well. Plus, my husband and I were given one of each dinner on our menu to take home with us that night so we tried it all and the chicken, filet mignon, and the shrimp and they were all so good. The cookies and pastries I figured would be just "whatever" items for dessert but they were actually gourmet and sooo good!!People raved about the cocktail hour and all the food and the Pretzel stand was a HUGE hit.I'm really not one to write reviews because I feel I rarely see service that goes above and beyond today. But Steve Melita my maitre D and Nicolotte my bridal attendant were amazing. Steve and Nicolette made this night amazing for my husband and ... Read more

  • What is there to say? Amazing, amazing, amazing. Ben Nierenberg was a pleasure to work with--responsive, helpful and didn't mind my pesky visiting of the venue once a month for over a year! Steve the maitre d' was SO AWESOME and Fheggy (sorry for the spelling) was a wonderful bridal attendant. Steve was really the shining member of the staff. He made my husband and I feel so relaxed and helped the day go super smoothly. He gave us everything we needed--we always had a cold drink, he gave us cold, wet napkins to cool down after dancing, he made sure my husband didn't stray too far away from me--he was just GREAT! Steve kept us knowing exactly what we had to do next, without ever feeling pressure or stress. He kept us boozed up and fed and HAPPY!! I am so grateful for him. There are SO MANY reasons to choose the Bourne, but Steve alone is reason enough!! The Bourne is a late 1800's mansion on the Great South Bay, built by the then president of Singer sewing machines, Fredrick Bourne. ... Read more

  • Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. From the minute I walked in to look at the venue we knew it was going to be our dream venue. All of the Lessings staff were friendly, responsive, and accommodating all of our questions and requests. Ben & Miriam made planning the event easy for both us and our families, and Steve did an amazing job making us feel so special on the day-of (and everyone calm when it started to rain about 2 minutes before the ceremony!). Our day went so smoothly and we were so relaxed. The setting was breathtaking, our guests loved the location & the food, and we had a drink in our hand the entire night-- everything we wanted! The uniqueness and professionalism of the Bourne make it worth every penny!

  • Going back almost two years ago when I was trying to decide whether to book my wedding at the Bourne Mansion I couldn't find many reviews to help me with my decision. I decided to book anyway since the caterer is Lessings and I know they have a good reputation. I am so glad that I did. My wedding day was a once in a lifetime experience made truly amazing due to the food, service and atmosphere of the Bourne Mansion. The cocktail hour takes place in the different rooms of the mansion and gives the guests time to explore most of the first floor. When I was walking around greeting my guests, the reactions of the people that had never been there before (most of them) were priceless. One of my guests said to me that she had been to a wedding the previous weekend at a well known catering hall but it couldn't compare to the "experience" of being in the mansion. That is what I was looking for in a wedding venue, something different than the average, something that my guests will talk ab... Read more

  • When I walked into the Bourne Mansion, I knew this was the place I wanted to have my wedding. I loved the ballroom, and all of the different cocktail hour rooms. It was also not the typical LI catering hall, which I wanted to avoid. The day of my wedding, the staff of the Bourne Mansion completely exceeded my expectations. The entire staff was so professional, and took care of everything. Steve, the maitre d, was amazing. He helped my husband and I throughout the night, and did a great job of making sure everything was on schedule. All of my guests have told us how amazing this venue was, and how it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to. I have also heard from numerous people how delicious the food was, both at cocktail hour and for dinner. Highly recommend the Bourne Mansion.

  • Our Wedding at the Bourne Mansion went extremely well. The services provided to us were outstanding, the Maitre'd (Steve) and his staff treated us like royalty. After the event (and even during it) our guests were telling us how great the service was, how nicely the venue was set up, and how everything ran so smoothly. They made our wedding a great day with no problems at all.

  • I honestly loved the Bourne Mansion. If anyone walks in and felt the way I did (it was perfect!), I'd highly recommend it. That said, no place is actually perfect. There were a few times over the planning process where I felt ignored. I was also told a few things to make us book that I was later told weren't actually possible and ended up having to pay extra for them. The maître d', Steve, who some feel is a bit rough, was a star- helping me with anything- down to my shoes, and making sure my husband and I had drinks in our hands and were having a good time throughout the evening. The food was better at our tasting than it was the night of the wedding, but these things happen. I will also say that our families were treated like royalty, not needing to go to the bar for their drinks and had someone on hand to help them with whatever they needed. Overall I don't regret booking at the Bourne and would do it again. It's beautiful. I would most likely be a little more aggressive abou... Read more
