The Meadowbrook formerly known as The Meadowbrook Lodge is a early century farm house built in the 1890’s. Alfred & Sophie Cavalari converted the farm house into what would become one of the most popular Resort’s in the Hudson Valley opening in 1931.  At the time the O&W railroad had a stop directly on site to allow easy access for the guests of The Meadowbrook Lodge. The resort industry in The Catskills and Hudson Valley at the time was the most popular traveling opportunity for families all over the country. The resort housed many guests during all four seasons with the summer and fall months being the busiest. The Cavalari Family lived on-site operating a seemingly flawless business. Their two sons Frank & John began working the family business upon when they returned from WWII in 1945. It was at that time the brothers began helping operate the family business and the second generation of the Cavalari family began to take over.


Eventually in the 1959 the resort industry declined in the Hudson Valley as automobiles and planes took over the traveling industry. A weekend in up-state NY was outshined by exotic locations now easily accessible to travelers. Frank & John made the decision to begin operating a wedding & catering venue on the the resort property to help carry the family business during slower months. The event business took off more than anyone expected. There was a huge need for a large wedding venue in the Hudson Valley and The Meadowbrook was the first of its kind in the Orange County area. Frank & John created a staple in class and sophistication.
In 1999 Frank and John decided to retire from the catering business and pass along the family business to the third generation. Frank Jr. purchased the family business from his father and uncle. Frank Cavalari Jr. is now the sole owner of The Meadowbrook catering facility.
