I cannot say enough good things about the Olde Mill Inn and especially our maitre'd, Marien. Throughout every aspect of planning my daughter's wedding, from suggesting vendors and choosing the menu to accomodating our out of town guests to making sure we had anything and everything we needed, the entire staff went above and beyond to ensure we were happy every moment of our special day. The food was beautifully presented, plentiful and absolutely delicious!! All of our guests raved about the food. The setting is gorgeous. Our photographer said more than once that she loves photographing at the Olde Mill Inn because it makes for such a beautiful background in pictures. Because the staff is so proficient at setting up each area, they were able to hold off setting up indoors, even though it rained for a good part of the day, and they set up outside once the rain stopped with plenty of time to spare. That made my daughter's dream of an outdoor wedding come true.

Marien is without a doubt the most organized, enthusiastic, resourceful professional we ever could have hoped for. She guided us through the process with a wealth of experience and good advice. We all trusted her completely, which made for zero stress the day of the wedding. She took charge and made sure everything ran smoothly, and she did it all with the same bubbly enthusiasm from 10am that morning till after midnight.

Go see the Olde Mill Inn. I promise you will love it!!

Olde Mill Inn posted 8/4/2013

When looking at wedding venues, we took a trip up to OMI, and it was the 2nd venue we had looked at it. As soon as we walked up to the venue we fell in love with how nice the venue looked from the outside. After going in and seeing the inside we loved it even more. We met with Lindsay Stewart, and she was very helpful, and helped answer all of our questions. Throughout the process she was great, and very responsive. We never felt pressured at all working with Lindsay.

As for the actual wedding we worked with John Lietz, who was amazing. We met with him prior to the wedding, and he was very detailed, and patient with all of the questions we had. He helped us plan the day, and choose our menu. He was also really responsive when it came to answering questions we had. Throughout the night he did a great job of making sure we were eating, and drinking.

We are still receiving compliments on how amazing the wedding was, and how it was the best wedding our guests have been to. From the ceremony, the cocktail hour, the reception, the food, the wait staff. It was all amazing!

We would highly recommend the Olde Mill Inn to anyone looking for a venue for their wedding day!

The entire staff at the Olde Mill Inn was a true pleasure to work with. John, our maitre'd was tending to our needs before we knew we even had them on the wedding day and he would respond to my crazed bride emails at all hours of the night. Cathi, the Director of Sales, was always immediately responsive to all of my questions throughout the planning process. I could not have asked for a better team to help create my wedding. The rest of the staff, from the front desk to the waitstaff, was wonderful to work with as well. The Olde Mill Inn was always willing to accommodate my requests, especially as vegetarian bride! All of our guests continue to rave about the food and the experience. Guests have asked if we could do the wedding again because they had such a wonderful time. I would do it again in a heartbeat! And you can't beat the beautiful, rustic, classy feel of the decor. I would recommend the Olde Mill Inn to any bride!

THANK YOU OLDE MILL INN!!! posted 10/19/2014

The Olde Mill Inn was INCREDIBLE!! My husband and I were so utterly thankful & happy with the Olde Mill Inn!! Lindsey S. was so sweet and helpful as well as John L.! Once it was getting towards crunch time John took over and was FANTASTIC! He was so patient and beyond helpful! Any last minute issues he handled immediately. We had picked a signature drink and shortly after cocktail hour started they ran out of the main liquor that was in it and John informed us and said "don't worry and we will get more" and he did! (fast too) And during the cocktail hour he not only made sure my husband and I were ok but also my mother - he brought her a plate of hors d'ourves. He would advise us about whats going on - anything we should know, esp any changes. He took care of EVERYTHING! The wait staff and the hospitality men & women were so kind and helpful too! My husband and I highly recommend the Olde Mill Inn not only for weddings but for any event or function! Thank you John, Lindsey and the Olde Mill Inn team!!

Love the Olde Mill Inn posted 10/19/2014

I can't speak highly enough about the Olde Mill Inn. Everything from the venue space to the food to the help was awesome. I had my wedding in late September at the Grain House which is the smaller of the two locations available on the premises and it was seriously perfect. I really didn't have any problems or concerns and Amanda who was our day of maitre d was absolutely wonderful. She took care of everything with flawless execution and made it so that I didn't have to worry about a single thing. She made great suggestions for how we could maximize the space and was so accommodating with all of my requests. There was nothing that she couldn't make work. I can't say enough how happy I was with picking the Olde Mill Inn for our wedding. All of our guests were raving about the food and how cute their hotel rooms were. This is a great place to get married and highly recommend getting married here if you are looking for a charming and semi-rustic location with amazing food and top notch services.

There are not enough words to describe the wonderful our experience at the Olde Mill Inn. They made my dream wedding perfect. John Lietz and his staff met all our expectations past what we were expecting.

My wedding was held at the Grain House. We were supposed to be having the ceremony at the gazebo but mother nature would not allow it and it was raining. They moved us to the tented area for the ceremony and it was beautiful beyond my dreams.

We have been married a month and I am still getting compliments on how beautiful the wedding was and what a terrific time everyone had. Food was wonderful and delicious.

If you are thinking of getting married. This should be your first choice. You will not be disappointed.

The PERFECT day! posted 10/13/2014

I cannot say enough good things about the Olde Mill Inn and especially our maitre'd, Marien. I have been imaging my wedding day for so many years and had held such high expectations for what I had hoped my day would be like. Marien and the Olde Mill Inn exceeded my expectations on my wedding day! Everything was absolutely perfect and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. Throughout the entire day and night Marien made sure my family and I had everything we needed. The entire staff went above and beyond to make sure we were happy every moment of our special day. The food was absolutely delicious!! All of my family and friends continue to talk about how amazing the cocktail hour was! Marien did a wonderful job decorating the venue to add all my personal touches in an elegant way.

Marien is so enthusiastic, organized, and such a professional person! She truly cares for each and every bride she works with! I am a very detail orientated, type A person, who has a difficult time giving up the control. However, I completely trusted Marien and her team and I turned over all my trust her, which eliminated any extra stress. This allowed me to just enjoy every aspect of the wedding day. She took charge and made sure everything ran smoothly. Thank you Marien for making my wedding dreams come true!! This is a day my husband and I will remember forever!!

From the very first moment we met with a consultant to discuss having our wedding at the Grain House, we were impressed. Marien Barker met with us and we were so won over by her enthusiasm and personality that we signed our contract on the spot! The entire wedding planning process was smooth and organized. Our maitre d', John Lietz, was amazing! He listened to all of our ideas and executed everything perfectly.
The wedding day was everything we hoped for. Even though it rained and we were not able to have the ceremony outside, they did a great job setting up inside and decorated the space beautifully. John checked in with us so often just to make sure we had everything we needed. The food was amazing and the staff/service was impeccable. The attention to small details was impressive and I did not have to worry about a thing during the wedding. Every item that we provided (decorations, pictures, etc) was packaged and waiting for us in our bridal suite (along with champagne!) by the end of the night.
Our guests were all impressed by the accommodations at the Olde Mill Inn and our stay was very enjoyable. Overall, I could not have asked for a better venue for the most special day of my life!

Perfect wedding at the Grain house posted 9/24/2014 (modified 9/24/2014)

Olde Mill Inn made planning a wedding from out of state a breeze. I was able to drop off everything for the wedding a few days ahead of time and do almost nothing the day of! We had a pretty major with one of the vendor but Amanda and Lindsay made sure the wedding when as planned till things could be fixed.

A day to remember posted 9/23/2014

My wife and I got married (ceremony and reception) at OMI last August. The service, expertise, and overall experience were spot on. We had the opportunity to work with Amanda V. and she was nothing but exceptional. She worked with us the entire time and really cared about making sure our vision came to fruition. I highly recommend OMI not just for the elegance of the venue, but for the professionalism of the staff. Definitely take a tour of the venue and see if OMI meets your style and your needs!

Happy bride! posted 9/10/2014

We got married this past August 24th at The Grain House at the Olde Mill Inn, it was exactly what we were looking for. From the moment we walked in to book their services to the end of our wedding, it was seamless. This place is absolutely gorgeous! We did the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception there. Our guest raved about the food, the wait staff, and the venue. Everything was breathtaking. I can't thank Amanda Virga, Lindsay Stewart and their amazing staff enough for all their help, they did a phenomenal job. Amanda our maitre'd pretty much took my vision and brought it to life, she was amazing! We wanted a romantic, vintage wedding and this was the perfect setting for it. We were extremely happy with our decision to have our wedding at the OMI. We can't wait to come celebrate our one year anniversary! Thanks again for making my dream come true!

A wonderful venue! posted 8/30/2014

I can't even begin to explain how happy I am with The Olde Mill Inn's service for our wedding. Each staff member was incredibly nice and attentive to our needs both before the big day and the day of the wedding. The sales manager was so willing to work with us when it came to our budget, and she kept things within our price range while also ensuring we had a beautiful day. The inn itself is so charming, and it made for wonderful photos. If I had to do it all over again, I would pick the same exact place!

Everything and More! posted 8/5/2014

I cannot say enough positive things about our wedding at The Grain House at the Olde Mill Inn. From the beginning, the staff was friendly, accommodating, and went above and beyond.

Lindsey Smillie handled everything up until the month before the wedding. I sent her countless emails and she always responded with positivity, answering my questions and always giving additional information that she thought might help.

During the month leading up to the wedding and the night of, Amanda Varga took care of us. All I can say is "Wow!" Amanda was nothing short of amazing that day and night. Everything was smooth as can be, Amanda was on top of everything. I didn't have to worry about a thing.

If you are looking for a smaller reception area that ensures your wedding is nothing short of perfect, look no further. If you are fortunate enough to work with Lindsey and Amanda then you are even luckier!

After visiting the Grain House at the Old Mill Inn, I knew this is where I wanted to have my dream wedding. Meeting with Lindsey S. confirmed this is the right place for me and my fiancé to tie the knot and share this wonderful day with family and friends. Lindsey guided us through out the entire planning phase and the was assigned a wonderful Maître d', Amanda. Amanda was always cheerful and professional and always willing to offer her advise when asked. She was there bright and early the day of my wedding and made sure everything went smoothly. I could not have asked for better service and attention by the entire staff on the OMI. Thanks again for making my special day really special

We had our wedding at the Olde Mill Inn on Saturday 6/14. The entire day was absolutely magnificent. Amanda Virga was assigned as our maitre d, and we couldn’t have been happier with her service and professionalism. She went above and beyond in every way to make sure my fiancé, parents, and I were pleased. Our guests keep raving about ambiance of the Olde Mill. It truly is a beautiful setting. My only regret is I wish I would have eaten more! Everyone said the food was delicious and plenty of it! If you’ve booked or are planning on booking at the Olde Mill, you will be overjoyed with their willingness to make sure your day exactly how you’ve pictured it!

Amazing posted 6/6/2014

We had our wedding reception at the Olde Mill in on May 17, 2014. Amanda Virga was our Maître' D and she did an amazing job!!! Amanda was very attentive, professional and responsive. We never had a problem getting in contact with her. She was a pleasure to deal with.

The weather on the day of our wedding was beautiful and we got to extend our cocktail hour to the courtyard. It was amazing! The courtyard looked beautiful and we even had a bar set up out there. Our reception was in the ballroom which very comfortably fit 180 people. The food was ABSOLUTELY delicious and plentiful! We chose the red sangria as our signature drink- it was soooooo good. I highly recommend it!

The Olde Mill Inn is a beautiful venue and we are so happy we decided to have out reception here.

Best wedding ever...according to me, and my guests! posted 5/1/2014 (modified 5/2/2014)

This review has been a long time coming! My wedding was in December, right after Christmas, and it couldn't have been more perfect. While a winter wedding is less traditional, the gorgeous decorations at the Olde Mill Inn made for an absolutely beautiful backdrop to the reception. I was living in Los Angeles at the time, but Marien assured me that she would take care of me through the entire process of selecting everything for the wedding. I always knew I wanted to get married at the Olde Mill Inn, so picking the venue was easy for me. We were fortunate enough to get in on a winter special and we were able to select some add-ons without too much of a price increase. As an event planner myself, I tried to stay as organized as possible, but even if I hadn't been, Marien was always helpful to walk me through the different choices I had to make.

Since the week of our wedding was Christmas, Marien was great in communicating with us the week before to let us know when we could drop off the items for the wedding, like the chair sashes and overlays that we purchased ourselves, along with our table cards, name cards, and candy bar items. Marien set everything up for us, and it looked incredible!

Our cocktail reception food was so good, our guests raved about the mashed potato bar. The dinner was maybe the best food I have ever tasted. That filet mignon was unbelievable! Everyone loved the stuffed chicken and salmon, too. Since we lived across the country, we didn't have time to set up a tasting for the cake, but we got it through Palermo's (which comes with the wedding package) and seriously, it was the most gorgeous cake I have EVER seen. I was blown away. At the end of the night, we didn't want to end, so the staff and bartenders stayed longer and we were up until 2 am. Marien is the best, the Olde Mill Inn is the best, my guests still rave that it's the best wedding they've ever been to, and keep asking to do it over again! We love the Olde Mill Inn!!

Our wedding at Olde Mill Inn was a dream come true! posted 4/23/2014 (modified 4/24/2014)

I just had my wedding at the Olde Mill Inn on 4.19.14 and it was absolutely perfect! The process began with Lindsey Smillie with whom we booked our wedding date a year ago. For the year that followed she was my adviser and lifeline to all things wedding related. Her responses were fast and beyond helpful. I couldn't have planned this without her! Then there's the venue itself. My husband and I chose OMI because of it's classic and quaint appeal but also because many of our guests would need to stay the night and OMI provide the perfect venue for this. We had our rehearsal dinner the night before at the Grain House (which was perfect as well!) So, many of our guests stayed from Friday through Sunday. It was so convenient and the rooms and service were impeccable. Maureen at the front desk was also so pleasant and never seemed bothered by how many times I called for an updated room roster. We chose John Lietz as our maitre'D because of reviews we'd read and it turns out the rave reviews were absolutely correct! John was amazing. He was on top of everything and kept me calm, fed and hydrated throughout the entire weekend. We couldn't have asked for a better team! Our ceremony was outdoors in the inn's courtyard and our ceremony was in the Washington Ballroom. Both spaces were SO beautiful! And the food for cocktail hour and our reception was DELICIOUS! By the end of the night everyone commented on how beautiful the place was and how great the service and food were. We could not have asked for a more perfect weekend!
