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.

Had our wedding at this beautiful place last night! Service, food, atmosphere–everything was absolutely perfect. Thank you to Jon L., the entire staff (and especially our wonderful server, Gloria!), for an unforgettable affair. If I could rate it higher than five stars, I would. Thank you again for your professionalism and topnotch hospitality.

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.

We had our wedding at the Olde Mill Inn December 23rd. During all the planning, Lindsey Stewart was super helpful. We got the winter special which was a great deal with so much amazing food. On the day of John Lietz made sure that everything ran perfectly. All the Christmas decorations were beautiful. The whole place is just gorgeous. The honeymoon suite is amazing. Our wedding was absolutely perfect…like a dream. We are so glad we chose the Olde Mill Inn!

I don’t know if I can say enough about this amazing venue and their incredible staff! We had out of state family attending, as well as we were planning from out of state and I didn’t have any worry at all and for good reason because everything turned out completely perfect! We had small wedding on a Saturday in NJ, a lot of vendors wouldn’t even give us a chance with a 45 person guest list! The Olde Mill Inn was perfect! The hotel on site was a huge plus, the cottage look of the Grain House was the perfect setting for our Fall Snow White themed wedding. We had an amazing time, it was beautiful, the food was delicious, and Amanda ( our Maitre D’) was basically my wedding planner! She took care of every single detail and it ran so smoothly! It was a total dream day!!! Our guests are still raving about the amazing time they had at our wedding! We really couldn’t be happier!!

The Olde Mill Inn was the first venue my new husband and I looked at and we knew right away that this was where we wanted to have our wedding. It’s a beautiful place with a lot of character and charm. We definitely appreciate the fact that it isn’t a cookie cutter “wedding factory” type venue. What makes the Olde Mill exceptional, though, is the staff. We had a lot going on this past year – on top of planning a wedding! And, from our very first visit at the Olde Mill, it was obvious that these people know what they’re doing and that they would make sure that everything would run smoothly, and so we wouldn’t have to worry. This assessment turned out to be very accurate. The whole process leading up to the wedding was very easy, smooth, and organized. I always felt like I was in excellent hands. Everyone I worked with at the Olde Mill couldn’t have been nicer or more helpful. When the wedding day arrived, I felt like they had everything covered and organized, and I could relax. The place was beautiful and the food was delicious. And, I haven’t even gotten yet to one of the biggest benefits to holding your wedding here: You can have your ceremony, reception, and the hotel all at the same place!! I can’t stress enough how much easier this will make things for you. Also, the hotel rooms are VERY nice. I would absolutely recommend having your wedding at the Olde Mill Inn and I’m so glad that my husband and I did!
