We had our wedding at the Grain House and it was everything we could hope for and more. Kate Roe and the team at the Olde Mill Inn and Grain House were outstanding. I was a very anxious bride, and Kate Roe really made the whole process easy. The grounds are truly incredible and have so much character. It was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. Even better, the food was to die for. I keep fantasizing about the butternut squash risotto! I can’t say enough how professional and wonderful the team is at the Grain House and Olde Mill Inn. Thank you!

I don’t even know where to start with how absolutely PHENOMENAL everything about this venue is! My husband and I found a great review of this place and saw the pictures, and immediately scheduled an appointment to check it out in person. If you know anything about wedding planning, you know that most venues take FOREVER to even respond to you, and rarely want to give any information unless you are on site, this was not the case at all when we messaged them. We heard back within hours, and they gave us all the information we asked before we got there. We met up with Amanda (who by the way is the BEST!!) she was so helpful with our first tour. We loved it so much we booked on the spot. This venue is the only location we even visited, and we have 0 regrets! We had our wedding there last week, and every little thing was perfect!! Amanda was amazing, she was there every step of the way helping us with my millions of emails with every little crazy bride question. The day of she helped set up, was there to make sure we ate, and enjoyed every second of our day! All of our friends and families will not stop talking about how amazing all of the food was and how much food there was. If you are looking for a sweet, romantic, fun spot for your wedding (( with great pricing I should add)) I absolutely would recommend the Olde Mill Inn.

Where to start! We could not be more thankful for Amanda helping us with the beginning of our wedding planning and John fully delivering us the most special and memorable experience. Amanda and John were extremely punctual and had excellent communication with us. On our day, I got ready in the Sawyer Room, as my now Husband was in the Bernards Suite ( which I highly recommend taking advantage of) and John made sure we had enough lunch and champagne, and if I need anything at all he was on top of it! After our ceremony in the courtyard, we had our pictures while the guests attended the Cocktail hour and John was bringing the food and our drinks to us during it all so we didn’t miss out on the appetizers! Our guests continued to compliment the venue and how organized everything was and the food was delicious!! We also had an awesome Ice sculpture displayed in the Cocktail hour with our names on it. Our extra decorations were set up exactly as we visioned. At the end of the night, John brought everything we needed to our suite so we never had to lift a finger. We are thrilled and so pleased that we chose the Olde Mill for our courtyard ceremony and reception. It was THE BEST DAY ever and we cannot be more thankful!

My husband and I got married at the Olde Mill Inn a little bit over 1 month ago. I didn’t want to wait too long to write this review because we had such an amazing experience and I want to recommend this venue to everyone! From the second we reached out to the Olde Mill, about 2 years ago, we knew this was the best place for us. We had looked at a million other venues but we were never met with the warmth and responsiveness that we were met with by the team at the Olde Mill. Marien gave us our tour, she was so bubbly, fun and informative! I had so many questions after we left and she was so quick to get back to me. She was easy to talk to and so pleasant. She worked with us on what we wanted and our date and she made everything work! We had some venues that would not budge on certain things and we had the exact opposite experience with Marien. Leading up to the wedding Marien and the team were just as pleasant and easy to get in touch with. In finalizing things for the wedding they were so prepared and supportive. They completely put me at ease! I had total faith and trust that they would make our day amazing and of course, they did. Everything was magical and perfect! They put so much attention to detail into making everything just as we wanted. The food was unbelievable and the staff were amazing and professional. Cocktail hour was fabulous and we really got to enjoy the beautiful courtyard. Every person at our wedding had an amazing time and we have continued to receive so many compliments. We also loved that the hotel rooms are attached right to the reception area. This made it easy for our elderly family members and our family members with young children. We went to the Grain House for a few drinks after the reception and that was so much fun as well! You could not pick a better venue for your wedding! Booking the Olde Mill was the best decision we made and we could not be happier. Thank you Marien & the amazing Olde Mill Inn Team! We love you and we cannot wait to visit again.

Planning a wedding from seven hours away isn’t always easy, but the staff at the Olde Mill Inn did everything they could to accommodate us to make the process as simple as possible. The sales staff, our Maitre D (John), and the front desk were always just an email or phone callaway. We couldn’t make one of the regularly scheduled mid-week tastings, so we were accommodated with a private tasting on a Saturday. Plus, you can’t beat a venue with a special offer just for hometown heroes–police officers, firefighters, nurses, military, etc. Everything about our wedding day at the Olde Mill Inn was perfect. The Maitre D, John, stopped by the bridal lounge in the morning to say hello and bring the bridal party mimosas. He remembered every detail throughout the day, even small things I wouldn’t have thought of! For instance, upon seeing how beautiful the ballroom looked, I exclaimed that I wanted one of each centerpiece to bring home with me, and lo and behold, when my husband and I returned to our room that night, there was one of each for us, along with all our other items! I don’t even know how he managed to do it all! John coordinated with our DJ throughout the night so I didn’t have to worry about anything. Our guests raved about the venue, the service and our Maitre D. Several commented that they had never seen a Maitre D so involved in a wedding. The whole night flew by–the only thing I wish is that I could do it all over again!

Beautiful Inn with plenty of charm and character. Food was top shelf, decor tasteful & very friendly staff. Wedding was simple yet elegant, cocktail hour was very impressive. Reception was tastefully done, the servers very attentive. The room was nicely decorated, comfy, especially the king size bed. Keurig coffee maker in the room was a nice surprise.

The Olde Mill Inn is the perfect place to get married. We had everything at one location: ceremony, reception, after-reception drinks at the bar, rooms for us and our guests, and a family brunch. The space is beautiful but what we really loved was how great the food is! They have so many options that are not just the run-of-the-mill wedding food. They were flexible and allowed us to customize our menu. John was our maître-d and he was amazing. He really helped make our day perfect from our planning meetings to our check-out. We definitely recommend working with the Olde Mill Inn to plan your wedding reception.

Fantastic experience from start to finish. We were looking for a place that was cozy and a bit rustic but, would fit about 75 people for the reception. The Grain House was perfect, with the Inn to accommodate our out of town guests.
Amanda was excellent to work with, being open to our crazy ideas and always responsive to our questions. We had a specific idea of our décor and had lots of fun working with her to create our vision. The day of our wedding, every detail was attended to and the set up was beyond my expectations!
The place is amazing and the food is outstanding. Our guests all commented on it!
I would highly recommend it. I only hope I can attend someone else’s wedding and enjoy it as a guest too!

Where do you even begin reviewing the place that makes all your visions and dreams come true? I will start with their warm and welcoming customer service staff who will literally do anything you ask and get you anything you need. Every person, whether at the front desk or working the tables at our reception, even to the cleaning crew, every person is professional and friendly and helpful. Their grounds are impeccable, their rooms are rustic-modern and immaculately clean (and incredibly reasonable!). Our guests RAVED about our food and said everything they had which is a lot!) was delicious. Our maitre d, John, was AMAZING and made everything exactly how I wanted it, all with a smile and usually a huge hug. If you are looking for a truly wonderful wedding experience, The Olde Mill Inn is your place.
