My husband and I were blown away by how perfectly our October wedding went at the Olde Mill Inn. They are true professionals and treat each couple with the utmost attention and dedication. Everything was beautifully executed as we wanted it, the food was delicious, and the recommended vendors were excellent as well. Our families had the perfect wedding weekend retreat at the hotel and are still talking about how wonderful it was. When all of the festivities were over (after an after party in the huge bridal suite and omelets at the group breakfast), my husband and I didn't want to leave. We sat in the gazebo and held hands and looked at the couples who were touring the facility for their own wedding. We told them enthusiastically that they couldn't do better than OMI for their wedding and remembered the people who had said the same to us less than a year before. Everyone we've spoken with raved about the service, food, and beauty of the Olde Mill Inn. We look forward to returning many times for dinner at the Grain House. It is a very special place and the perfect venue to showcase our enduring love and commitment to a life together. Thank you to John who was an amazing maitre D, and to the fabulous waitstaff as well. If I could live in one day for the rest of my life, it would be the day of my wedding at the Olde Mill Inn.

We had our entire wedding at the Olde Mill Inn from the ceremony to the reception. Our sales person was Marien Barker and she was absolutely amazing. She sat us down and we went through every piece of information from start to finish and she didn't let us walk away until we understood everything that was happening. We booked the venue in early 2012 and the wedding wasn't until 10-13-12. During that time, she quickly answered any emails I sent, returned any phone calls I made and would generally reach out to me if she didn't hear from us in a while. She was very attentive. I was thrilled when I found out she would be our Maitre D. We even planned our rehearsal dinner at the Olde Mill Inn because she was so easy to work with. Everything from the rehearsal dinner all the way to the reception went perfectly. There were no major problems and most of the issues, Marien handled right away. We even had special forks for our cake cutting which we both forget to tell the servers about. Once that was done, they took the forks thinking they were ordinary banquet forks. I contacted Marien 2 days later to tell her that we didn't get the back. She had the whole staff looking and they actually found them and returned them wrapped in tissue paper with a pink ribbon! I couldn't believe it. Besides that, our friends and family have told us it was the best wedding they have ever been too. They are still talking about the food (which was so amazing!) I would tell anyone to have their wedding there if they could. The Olde Mill has 2 rooms. The main ballroom for large wedding and the Grain House for small weddings. Both have outdoor ceremony sites and they even have back up plans in place for rain.

Our wedding Sunday, October 14, 2012 at the Grain House Restaurant was beautiful. We chose the Grain House because of the location, size & knowledgeable staff. The first time we visited we felt right at home. We had around 75 adults and children so the Hunt Room was the perfect size for our party. The Hunt Room has a full size bar, a dance floor and its own bathroom for your guests. The room itself is classy, cozy and light. It was perfect for a fall wedding. There is also a bridal suite to get ready in which was very helpful for myself, my maid of honor and my mother. Lindsey our booking agent and Victoria our concierge for the event were extremely helpful, always approachable and professional. The chef on site did an amazing job with our meals. The staff was on top of everything we needed during the set up and dinner. My guests raved about the wedding and how much fun it was. Everyone was comfortable and free to have a good time. Thanks so much to everyone at the Grain House who made our day so wonderful!

My husband and I recently got married at The Olde Mill Inn and I can not put into words what a phenomenal job they did. Marien was our wedding coordinator and she was an absolute pleasure to work with and knows what she is doing 100%. All of the staff at The Olde Mill Inn is wonderful to work with and they are all very attentative. I couldn't have dreamed of a better day. People are still raving about how beautiful the wedding was and how amazing the food was (food is a huge key element to a great wedding!). The best part about The Olde Mill Inn is being able to have your ceremony, cocktail hour, reception and accomodations all in one place! It made it very convenient for us as well as our guests! Thanks again for the wedding of our dreams! -D&K

5 stars is not enough! This place really truly went above and beyond to make our day perfect from start to finish! Our Maitre D’ Marien Barker was a doll ! She helped me every step of the way even doing things beyond her role !The entire staff at the Olde Mill Inn was amazing! We had both our rehearsal dinner & wedding there & the service as well as the food were impeccable. They put out a spread meant for royalty, the highest quality & so much of it & might I say very reasonably priced! We highly recommend The Olde Mill Inn & will be using them for future family functions! All our guests can't stop raving how amazing everything was & how it was the best wedding & venue they have been to . Some even spoke of booking the venue themselves! When you hear that from everyone guest makes you happy & 5 stars is not enough!

From my first encounter with Allan, the Front Desk Manager, and his efficient and willing staff through the meetings with our planner Lindsey Smillie and our Maitre'D Vitoria Vicari everything was handled with professionalism, courtesy, patience, kindness and a genuine desire to make our wedding day and the planning for it work seamlessly. The venue itself was beautiful, the Inn rooms lovely (especially apprecaited the "green" commitment of the hotel). The Inn runs like a Swiss watch and all staff were pleasant, greeting us with open smiles. Lindsey and Victoria guided us through the myriad of decisions needed to be made and helped us select outside vendors for flowers, music, photography and a warm and wonderful officiant Rev. John Graf. Somerset Hills Florist, Sweet Music and Stephen Taylor Photography did a superb job enhancing our wedding day beautifully. Victoria watched over us through our rehearsal and early on in our wedding day through to its late afternoon conclusion. She was a quiet presence making sure everything went smoothly. The serving staff were wonderful.
