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!

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!

Amazing Food, Service and overall experience posted 4/9/2014 (modified 4/10/2014)

We held our late March wedding in the ballroom at the Olde Mill. We chose the Ballroom over the Grain House because we loved the flow, natural light and overall feelings of the rooms.

The service, food and overall experience we had was top knotch. As an event and conference planner for work, I was very critical and specific in my expectations and the food and service team delivered. I've had many guests tell me the cocktail hour food was the best they've experienced at a wedding!

In addition to a wonderful banquets experience, we did everything at the venue - rehearsal dinner in the private room at the Grain House, overnight rooms for guests, bridal suite prep in the morning, ceremony onsite, reception and more overnights the night of the wedding.

Throughout, the service and staff graciousness we experienced in each instance was wonderful and our Maitre 'D was there as our organizing support.

I have had numerous guests say things like, "I don't know how you found this place but you lucked out" and I think we really did!

An "INN"CREDIBLE Time! posted 3/29/2014 (modified 3/30/2014)

We knew from the moment we visited The Olde Mill Inn that it was the perfect place for our wedding. A big thanks to Lindsay Smilie, our booking agent, who showed us the grounds and answered all of our questions. John Lietz, our Maître D, was so helpful! He was willing to do anything to make our day perfect. John and his staff went above and beyond to make sure every detail of our wedding ran smoothly. John made sure our guests had everything and anything they needed; which meant the world to us. I can't say enough how much we loved everything The Olde Mill Inn did for us! Thank you Olde Mill Inn for all your hard work and efforts. Our guests are still talking about the delicious food and amazing time they had at this " Top-Notch" Wedding. We are truly grateful.

Grain House-Perfect Venue! posted 3/16/2014 (modified 3/17/2014)

My husband and I were married at The Olde Mill Inn-Grain House on February 8, 2014. As soon as we viewed the venue we fell in love. The layout and décor of the Grain House was exactly what we wanted.
We first met with Lindsay and she was very knowledgeable and was always able to answer all of our questions mainly through email. She gave us a thorough tour of the venue and a detailed estimate of how much the wedding would cost. We ended up booking this venue a couple days later because we knew it was the one.
Our maître d was Amanda and she took care of all the details of our wedding. She always followed up with us and cared about how our wedding planning was coming along. When we first met with her in person, she was very welcoming and was excited to help us plan our wedding. We went over every detail with her and she always answered our emails very quickly. The day of our wedding went smoothly because Amanda took care of the timeline and made sure our guests knew where to go at specific times. She always asked how we were doing that night to make sure it was the best day of our lives. The service staff was excellent and very friendly with our guests. The food was spectacular and we couldn’t believe how much food was at the cocktail hour! I recommend the sangria, which was our signature drink, all of the guests said it was delicious.
The Olde Mill Inn-Grain House was the best choice we could have made for our wedding venue. All of our guests said that it was the best wedding that they have ever been to. My mother in law is still raving about what a great time she had and said it could not have been any better!

Simply perfect! posted 1/5/2014 (modified 1/6/2014)

My husband and I chose to have our 11.29.13 wedding at the Olde Mill Inn because of its cozy and rustic feel. Best choice we could have made!! We booked with Lindsey Smillie- she was so sweet and we were so impressed with the level of professionalism. She was open and flexible to working with us on planning a perfect wedding day within what we could afford. She was immediately responsive throughout the planning months whenever I emailed her and provided great advice & suggestions. We encountered much of the same with our Maitre 'd John. He was warm & friendly, responsive when I contacted him, very helpful when we met with him to plan our menu, and very organized when I went the week of the wedding to drop off all of our stuff. The day of the wedding, was the best day of our lives! And OMI had alot to do with that. Not only was the venue breathtaking, but everyone raved about the food and the service. John was always there when I needed him with a drink or a plate of food without being overbearing. Also, at the end of the night, there was nothing better than everyone just being able to walk up to their rooms. I also liked that fact that I got to wake up the next morning and spend breakfast again with my friends and family. It felt like a weekend getaway! We highly recommend the OMI!! They made our wedding day so special- we didn't want it to be over!!!

Olde Mill Inn is amazing !! posted 11/30/2013 (modified 12/1/2013)

Olde Mill Inn was amazing. Lindsey, when we booked the venue a year ago was so great and helpful and once we toured the property we knew we wanted our wedding there. They made everything so easy. Our maitre'd John was so amazing. He made sure I had nothing to worry about the day of our wedding. He made everything flow so smoothly I never had to worry about a thing. Always had food and a drink ready for me. The FOOD WAS SOOO DELICIOUS. Everyone loved the mashed potato bar at cocktail hour. Everyone kept telling us how stuffed they were after the wedding and how delicious all the options we had were. So many choices and so accommodating to our food preferences. The hotel itself is beautiful and loved all our guests stayed right with us and got breakfast with us the next day. Would definitely recommend this place to any bride/groom looking for a amazing venue with amazing staff and food! It was the greatest night of our lives and so glad we chose the Olde Mill Inn.

AMAZING! posted 10/7/2013

Our wedding day was September 6, 2013 and it was the best day of our lives, and the Olde Mill Inn helped make it that way! We worked with Marien as our wedding planner and maitre d' and she went well above and beyond to make sure that everything went perfectly. She knew every detail of what we wanted and wished for and paid attention to us as individuals (even making sure that the bride had a bowl of her favorite Grain House pickles waiting for her at the sweetheart table! Yum!) She was quick to answer e-mails and on the day of the wedding, she was five steps ahead of us throughout the entire day to prevent any and all hiccups.(There were none!)

The venue itself is truly remarkable. An all-in-one venue where your guests stay right upstairs and the ceremony and reception are downstairs, it's beyond convenient. Because we had our wedding on a Friday, our wedding was the only one that day and it felt like the hotel was our home. The rooms are extremely high-quality (they even have Keurig brewers in each room!) and the building is well-maintained all-around. All of our guests felt at home and loved their experience there!

We had our ceremony in the courtyard, and the setting was beautiful. It's a small, intimate, and beautiful setting right in the middle of the hotel.

We also chose to have our rehearsal dinner in the Grain House restaurant across the parking lot. The food at the Grain House is spectacular (we went there for dinner ourselves a few times before our wedding), but that pales in comparison to the amazing dinner at the Olde Mill Inn during our reception. Everyone raved about the delicious (and surplus of) food at cocktail hour, and the main course was even better. Everyone's orders are taken tableside, ensuring that food isn't prepared ahead of time and just heated up.

Finally, we were so grateful that because we were having our wedding on a Friday, the Olde Mill Inn was willing to work with us to fit our budget. If they weren't as flexible as they were, we likely wouldn't have been able to have our wedding here.

If you're looking to have a medium-sized (100-200 people) wedding, the Olde Mill Inn is worth every penny. Your pictures will be perfect with such a beautiful backdrop and your experience will be everything you dreamed of! We HIGHLY recommend this venue.
