Had our wedding at this beautiful place last night! Service, food, atmosphere

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!

We had our wedding at the Olde Mill Inn in Basking Ridge, NJ on 8/20/2016 and it was beautiful. We had 225 guests and this venue exceeded any and every expectation you could possibly have for a wedding venue. The staff, and especially our maitre d Marien, was unbelievably professional, detail-oriented, and accommodating from first glances as an overwhelmed engaged couple to final goodbyes as husband and wife. The Olde Mill Inn offers an impressively wide arrange of food options for the bride and groom to select to have served on the day of the wedding and this includes hors d’oeuvres, food stations, entrees, and even desserts. The quality of the food was incredible and our guests raved about their dining experiences during the wedding and days after. The Olde Mill Inn staff especially prides themselves on giving the bride and groom the notion that the day of the wedding is a worry-free experience where every detail you can think of has already been taken care of. I highly recommend the Olde Mill Inn and their staff as they gave my husband, myself, our families, and all of our guests an unforgettable wedding experience.

We held our entire wedding weekend at the Olde MIll Inn and the whole thing was absolutely amazing! It was the first place we visited in looking for a wedding venue and it ended being our top choice throughout. We picked the Olde MIll Inn because of its quaint charm, the fact that our guests could all stay on-site for the whole weekend, the great food (we had previously eaten at their Grain House restaurant), and the super friendly service and staff. And we are certainly glad we made that choice! From Friday rehearsal dinner at the Grain House all the way to Sunday brunch, it was the best wedding weekend we could ever have envisioned. The hotel grounds provide some amazing spots for wedding pics (including the beautiful hotel lobby areas, courtyard, gazebos, grassy areas with a creek, etc.). Our maitre D was John, who took great care of us. I cannot believe how hard that man worked to keep everything running smoothly from beginning to end! Even the pickiest of our guests loved the food. I could go on and on about the little things they did to make the weekend special, but it all went off without a hitch, and our guests were raving about it afterward. Would choose Olde Mill Inn again without a moment’s hesitation.
