Absolutely amazing!!! Our experience with the Olde Mill Inn was a true joy from start to finish. Our sales manager Lindsey Smillie sold us on the Olde Mill Inn from the first visit and her attentiveness didn’t fade throughout the planning. She happily answered all of our questions in a timely manner and was there to assist us in any way she could. Amanda Virga was our Maitre D and she was absolutely amazing. She managed to put this stressed out and crazy bride at ease! I didn’t have to worry about a thing on the wedding day because Amanda made sure everything ran smoothly. All of guests raved about how beautiful the wedding was and the food was to die for! I am so glad we got married at the Olde Mill Inn and hope someone I know gets married there so I can go back for another her wedding! The Olde Mill Inn is the whole package: beautiful venue, great food and amazing staff.

Thank you so very much for all you did to make our wedding day so memorable and special. We never could have asked for someone more professional or knowledgeable to handle all the details of the most important day of our lives. You were the reason why a day that could have been so stressful instead felt effortless. We will forever be indebted to you for your incredible work to make our day magical.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about omi and Marien Barker. QUALITY OF SERVICE: Let me start off by we are getting married Nov2015 in the Washington Ballroom. Both of our families loved the historic significance of the place and the neatly kept landscape. We also love being the only event happening @ the time. RESPONSIVENESS: Marien has been a tremendous resource even before we officially signed! She is always a phone call or email away, and goes above and beyond to make sure you’ve got everything you need to be at ease. Because of this, omi was literally the easiest and least stressful decision of our entire wedding process! PROFESSIONALISM: We were lucky enough to view the ballroom just before an evening wedding. The staff was dressed to the nines, very courteous, attentive, and allowed us to see the space as it might look on our big day. Stunning! VALUE: Hotel rooms, cocktail hour, dinner selections, etc. are *incredible* for the price you pay (plus, it’s just your event!). FLEXIBILITY: We had some issues in securing our church which caused us to delay in booking our wedding date with omi. The staff “held” the date for us for over a month (no money down!) and continued working with us to ensure the Washington Ballroom was ours. During that time, there was never any pressure from them to commit (maybe because they knew we were already sold!). In fact, they treated us like we were already part of the omi family. I cannot wait for our wedding day with them!

My husband and I had such a great experience working with the Olde Mill Inn for our winter wedding day! We dealt with Lindsay Stewart in the beginning and she was always kind and helpful and responded to our questions thoroughly and quickly. Our maitre’d was Amanda and she was just awesome. She made sure she understood everything that we wanted and that everything was organized and perfect. I was so calm the day of our wedding as I knew she had everything handled. We had a few guests in wheelchairs and although they don’t have elevators, they were so accommodating to make sure everyone got around safely. We have received so many compliments on how delicious the food was from the cocktail hour to the dinners, how nice and attentive the staff was (especially one waitress who helped my grandma and her friends who don’t get around easily with everything that they needed! thank you!), and everyone loved the feel of the venue. We couldn’t be happier with how our day went and we are so glad we decided to have our wedding at the Grain House. It was everything we had wanted!

John Lietz and Marien Barker were great to work with. We got married October 10, 2014 and are still getting compliments on how great the wedding was and how great the food was. John made everything run perfect that night. Wish we could have another wedding there! We had a great time and we were sad when the night ended.

John & Sophia would like to let you know that our experience with the personnel and venue at the Olde Mill Inn & Grain House was truly exceptional. We had a limited time to plan our wedding, and every expectation we had was 100% exceeded. Amanda Virga did a tremendous job of managing every aspect of the wedding, and made us feel very comfortable that we had no reason to worry about the finer details for our big day–she took care of EVERYTHING. The venue was stunning, the food was delicious, and the service was second-to-none. I recommend both Amanda and Marien to anyone looking to have the wedding of a lifetime. A beautiful Christmas wedding started as a figment of our imaginations and became an incredible reality because of the great work Amanda and Marien did for us. From customizing the menu, to collaborating on the decorating details, we simply couldn’t have asked for more.

The Olde Mill Inn gave me the best wedding I could have ever asked for – truly a dream come true. Being a controlling person, I was so concerned that I was going to spend my wedding day being stressed out. The best part was that I didn’t have to because they made everything so easy for me! Looking at other people’s weddings, what I love is their attention to detail. We feel so lucky with how much love and care they put into our wedding, and it made paying the bill very easy!

Winter Wedding Bliss, My wedding reception was held at the Grain House. From the time we booked the venue, the staff was amazing! We first dealt with Lindsey and she answered all questions I had promptly. Then, Amanda took over the booking and I can’t say how helpful and amazing she was!! The food, service, environment was amazing. The staff during the reception went above and beyond! I recommend this place 110%!!!
