Space and flexibility in the heart of the Catskills

memorial receptions, Repasts, celebrations of life — we're here for you

The Paper Mill Restaurant, Bar and Events is a restaurant and local gathering place for post-funeral luncheons, including next-day events. We have private rooms for 50 to 150. Customized meals and fair pricing to fit your budget, we make the day as comforting as can be.

Rituals like funerals, memorial services or bereavement ceremonies are an essential part of the grieving process. It is a chance for friends and family to come together to remember and celebrate the life of their loved one. 

We will take the burden from you for hosting a post-memorial reception as we are located on Route 209 in Napanoch—a 7-minute drive from Ellenville’s Joseph N Garlick and Loucks or a 5-minute drive from Humiston in Kerhonkson. Ample parking available for all.
