Incredible!Reviewed on 9/19/2013 Kimberly A
There are no words to describe how I felt on my wedding day. Everything was just perfect at the Milleridge! Their staff is absolutely amazing! I can't say enough about Pam, Jennifer and David. They made sure everything looked perfect, ran smoothly and made me feel like family. They are truly caring people there. The food was excellent!

Can't get better than the Milleridge CottageReviewed on 12/11/2012 Christina T
I had my late November wedding at the Cottage and could not have been happier. Every experience with them was effortless throughout our engagement, and the day of they really took charge to make sure our guests had a fantastic time. The venue is breathtaking - particularly after Thanksgiving when it is decorated for the holidays. Pam and David were the best! I would recommend this to any bride, but particularly those looking for a non-catering hall experience - which is somewhat difficult to find in Nassau County!
My wife and I got married at the Milleridge Cottage on Sunday, July 24th. After what seemed to be an endless search for venues, we came about The Milleridge Cottage. We really liked the simple elegance of the Cottage and the fact that you can be the only event of the evening as the entire Cottage is yours. Also, we knew the food is great at the Milleridge Inn so we figured the Milleridge Cottage would be the same. We got engaged this February and were hoping to get married in late July. We met their sales consultant Kathy Redash during our initial visit and worked with her throughout the entire process. She gave us a tour of the venue as well as walked us though pricing, available dates, and potential menus on our first visit. We looked at all sorts of venues ranging from wedding factory type places, castles, upstate venues, golf courses, and more. The Milleridge had the best of all of the venues all put into one. Kathy told us that they would be undergoing a renovation and that the place would look even better than how it looked when we visited. I thought to myself, why would they change the way the place looks, when it already looks so great. But, I also thought, it they are going to renovate, I’m sure that they would make it even better. And “WOW”….We could not believe how amazing the venue looked on our wedding day. The bridal room was brand new with onyx floors. A beautiful new fireplace as a backdrop behind us, amazing new floors, and new windows to bring more light into the space. Ok…so we had our wedding ceremony outdoors. The grounds were nicely kept and peacocks and other animals roam around. People took photos of the beautiful peacocks on the property and the children that attended our event loved every bit of it. It gave you a feeling as if you weren’t in NY. Kathy and the Milleridge team went above and beyond for us. Our guests complimented how amazing the food was and how much of it there way. The service was flawless. The drinks flowed all night and everything was top shelf. What other vendors considered top shelf was not what the Milleridge called top shelf. Our guests would ask for a vodka soda and the bartenders would ask if Grey Goose was ok. Johnny Walker…of course it was Black Label. You want Tequila..of course it was Patron. We are now a few weeks after our wedding and people continue to tell us that it was the best and most impressive wedding that they have ever attended. The cocktail hour was the best anyone had ever seen. The dinner with Filet Mignon and other choices were cooked to perfection. The Viennese hour that we included had desserts that our family and friends are still dreaming about. Our wedding day exceeded every expectation that we had and was the wedding of our dreams and this was thanks to the entire Milleridge team and especially Kathy Redash.
I went to the Milleridge Cottage after its recent remodel for a wedding, and it was so beautiful!! The venue was so elegant and lavish. The wait staff was extremely attentive and personal, and highly professional. We also LOVED the food! Everything was made to perfection, and tasted so fresh and flavorful. I would definitely have my wedding here, as my experience was flawless and this place is one I will never forget!!
The Milleridge Cottage was the second and last venue we saw and my husband and I were sold! We both were looking for a big dance floor, spacious room and a cozy, non-catering hall feel and the Milleridge fit the bill! They were willing to negotiate and help customize our menu. We had every confidence in the venue until May 2015 when we found out they had been sold. The panic and anxiety that ensued was something I hope that no other bride experiences. Through it all the staff at the Milleridge tried to reassure us our event would continue as promised with the quality that we had expected. I called and visited many times during this period, deciding whether to move our wedding elsewhere. We chose to stay and we couldn't have been happier. Even though there was some turn over in staff, Melissa was amazing to us. Not only did she quell our fears, she helped us organize, finalize details, and gave us helpful feedback and advice about everything. On the day of the wedding, we were in excellent hands. The staff received word that they would be staying open, we had a beautiful 65 degree sunny November day AND the hall was decorated for Christmas. We had so much food at the cocktail hour - our bartenders took care of our big crowd and there was a ton of food in bridal suite. Alexandra and Scott were our maitre'ds and took care of us, refilled our drinks, and helped the day flow smoothly. The Vienesse hour was insane and totally worth it. We had many guests comment about how they had heard mixed reviews about the Milleridge in general but were so impressed with our wedding. The staff handled our 200 guests easily, accommodated requests and were generally helpful. Our wedding cake was deliciously made by the bakery. We enjoyed taking photos in the village and the ambiance of the whole place. The place is not new nor is it the most modern looking - but that worked for us. Hopefully some updates will be made , keeping the same charm that drew us in. We really had an amazing wedding day thanks to the staff at the Milleridge!
We had gotten engaged last June and spent months looking for the perfect venue. We had looked at so many venues and didn’t feel happy with any of them. When we found the Milleridge Inn, our thoughts changed completely. They didn’t pressure us to choose a date asap or else we will lose one. They had a flat rate which included everything from catering, wedding cake, the ceremony aisle runners and flowers, and an open bar with top shelf liquor. They were extremely accommodating when holding the desired date for us. I am not sure if it was the amazing hospitality, down to earth, friendly and extremely helpful staff, or the quaint and warm environment, but we knew we had found our wedding spot. After looking around at the rustic wooden floors and adorable Milleridge Village, we immediately booked this place without any question. What made this place even classier was the fact that they were willing to work with our budget by reducing costs on certain items, as well as customizing food items for our kosher guests. It worked very well for a mid-sized reform Jewish ceremony. The staff even recommended DJ’s and through them, we found an amazing DJ. All we can say is that throughout the process until the wedding day, the staffs at The Milleridge had treated us like family and were extremely helpful along the way. We were helped by Jayne Fricke. They set up ceremony and reception packages which really take the ease off of finding an external caterer and ceremony florist during wedding planning. The food was outstanding! It was French/American country and probably the best wedding food that I have ever had. The bakery is right in town, and they made us a gorgeous cake which you didn’t want to even eat. The décor was classy, quaint, and elegant, which is something that is rare to find in the area. They even treat you like royalty in the bridal suite by giving you champagne. The staff came in to ease any pre wedding nerves before the ceremony. The bar and bar tender was amazing. It was filled with top shelf liquor and the bar tender was able to make anything that you wanted. We are so glad that we had our wedding at The Milleridge Inn. It is truly a unique and loving venue.
AMAZING Night!!Reviewed on 10/21/2015 Janelle C
The Milleridge Cottage was the most amazing venue! They offer tons of help and made everything just right. Given that my day didn't really start out well, by the end of the night I was more then thrilled with the result. My guests absolutely could not stop raving about the night, the food the drinks everything! and they thought the space was stunning! All of them had an amazing time. Thank you so much to Melissa and the other ladies at the Cottage. The evening turned out awesome! I would ABSOLUTELY go back and have another event. Maybe a baby shower! ;)
Amazing ! Please don't knock it down!Reviewed on 10/20/2015 Karissa W
From the staff to the venue to the decor, everything about this place was phenomenal. They Made our day feel extra special. Our matre d was incredible!!! The bridal attendants made sure we ate and always had a drink in our hand. They kept an eye on everything. It was truly the most incredible day! My coordinator, Melissa, was a Godsend! The sweetest woman, who made me feel at ease about everything! Plus the food was to amazing! It will truly be a shame if they knock this beautiful venue down!
We had our wedding at the Milleridge Cottage in August and it was even better than I had imagined. I can't say enough about the day. Melissa Culp was helpful throughout the whole process. Her energy and attention to detail was so wonderful. I have never met anyone like her before. When I was stressed, she calmed me down. She had great ideas on how to decorate the room and I am so happy to have been able to work with her. She took all of my phone calls with grace and walked me through the whole process. Melissa's bubbly personality cannot be matched. I have never met anyone that is always as happy as she is. Pam was our matri'd. Yes, the amazing Pam. The party ran smoothly and if it wasn't for her I probably would not have gotten through the night. She made sure I was where I was supposed to be at all times. Throughout the night she always made sure my husband and I were drinking. This story proves how great Pam is: It was approaching 7:00 and I was in the bridal suite about to walk down the isle. My father was greeting people as they entered the cottage. One man gave my father a big bear hug and at that moment his button to his tux went flying. My father started to panic a bit because now he was going to have to walk me down the isle with his jacket open. Pam apparently saw the whole thing, she rushed over, took his jacket, and within minutes had a new button sewed on. The button even matched the buttons on the jacket already! I had no idea this was going on, but by the time I was walking down the isle with my dad his jacket was as he wanted it to be. From beginning to end I cannot say enough about the staff at the Cottage. I knew my wedding would be nice, good food, good band, etc. But it was so much more than what I had expected. People are still talking about the food! But what made it seamless for me is being able to work with Melissa and Pam. Thank you both for being part of our special day. It is such a shame the Cottage is closing. It is not only a Long Island Landmark, but a wonderful place to be. I am so thankful to have been able to get married there.
There is so much I can say. First the decor was beautiful. The staff was wonderful and very tenative to our needs, The food was AMAZING. I never dreamed our day would be as beautiful as it was. Everyone was very professional and they made sure that it was all about us and making it as special for us as they can. Beautifully done would be an under statement as to the care they gave us on our day. Our guest is still talking about our day and their experience with you all. Thank you for making our day so beautiful for us. - Charlene & Nikita Sherriff

Worst customer serviceReviewed on 12/08/2014 Tifffany M
What a nightmare, from beginning to end. I had nothing but problems during the entire year before my wedding. I was told by Jennifer that I could have any cake made at the bakery there and pay an upgrade fee...not the case. Any pictures I sent were immediately answered via email with "no", no explanation given. I contacted the baker directly he told me he was never shown any pictures that I emailed her. At the tasting you are given about 15 things to try out of 80 and have to guess what the rest will taste like. I was told there would be centerpieces provided by Milleridge for the cocktail tables and I showed up the day of my wedding to empty tables.Pam did take care of that situation (she was the only helpful person throughout this whole experience). They threw out the leftover dessert after the wedding when I was told to pick it up the next morning and they "lost" one of my centerpiece bases. I was never made to feel like a "bride" during this experience. All of my guests thought everything was beautiful but the year before and day after were a nightmare.
The Perfect Place for our Perfect Day!!!Reviewed on 10/25/2014 CAROLYN J
A year ago we walked into the Milleridge Cottage, filled with a bundle of nerves, and fell in love! Our banquet manager, Jennifer, walked us through the cottage and instantly helped us picture our wedding day there. She was always on the other end of a phone or email with us and even helped pick out our wedding cake! Jen got us to the wedding day and Pam, our maître‘d, made sure that we survived it! All of Pam’s wedding reviews are amazing, but they do not do enough justice for this woman! Pam, like a ninja, is barely seen and only captured in pictures running in the background. She worked so hard to give us a perfect day & we appreciated every second of it! Pam also has a contagious spirit! She is such a warm and special person! We’re so glad that she was a part of our day! Our guests are still raving about the place, every piece of food that was served, and the unbelievable service! The Milleridge Cottage pays attention to every detail and that’s why our wedding day was perfect!
AMAZING!!!Reviewed on 6/16/2014 Christine W
The Milleridge Cottage was absolutely amazing! They paid so much attention to detail and went above and beyond for everything. The maitre d, Pam was fabulous! Whatever anyone needed she took care of. She even packaged food and dessert for us to take home. My banquet manager was Heather and she took care of everything from helping choose a balanced menu to seating arrangements for the room.
My amazing wedding at the cottage!Reviewed on 6/07/2014 Claire T
I had my wedding at the cottage on memorial weekend and could not be happier with the decision to book with them. Jennifer and David (the banquet managers) were beyond helpful with all of the planning. Working with the milleridge is such a different experience than working with many of the other venues on LI because it's like working with a family. It's not an over-the-top, extravagant venue like other around (which is exactly what I loved about it), yet the ballroom is gigantic and the dancefloor is the biggest I've seen at any wedding. It's got that "homey" feel, with the hardwood floors throughout and the way the entrance room looks like you've just entered someone's beautiful home. I had about 225 people at my wedding, and cocktail hour was never overcrowded due to all of the outdoor space and the fact that tables were set-up everywhere. The bar was never overcrowded either because they have one in the ballroom, and the main bar by the entrance which was also very nice. I loved that it was one wedding at a time as well. We had so many people come up to us to say how they loved the venue because it was so different than the other ones around. Others told us it was refreshing to go to a venue that was unlike every other venue around LI too. I have been to so many weddings in the last couple of years, and just felt that many of them seem so similar. Other venues just have so much going on that it can get distracting. I feel like the cottage is the type of venue that "speaks for itself" and because of it's more vintage/antique type of look, it allows for the guests to focus less on what is going on in the room, and more on each other. Now onto Pam the (maitre d): She is reason enough to book with the milleridge! She put candles EVERYWHERE and made the room look so beautiful. She took me and my husband in a golf cart over to the village area for pictures, and went ahead of us and ordered a chocolate milkshake for us to sip on in the confectionery cafe for pictures, which I thought was so cute of her to do. She gave me one of every entree on the menu for dinner!!!! I had salmon, duck, chicken, and chateaubriand lol..And made my husband a giant cheeseburger (the size of his plate) with fries for dinner as per his request lol... She set up everything (beer koozies, seating chart, picture frames, favors, menus, signature drink signs, flip flops, etc. etc. etc.) exactly how I pictured it and I didn't have one complaint about the set-up. She had drinks at my table for my husband and I the second she saw they were about to be empty. She went to the tables to make sure people were having a good time and asked if anyone needed anything. She also overheard my dad say how good the baby lamp chops were at cocktail hour and actually got a giant plate of like 15 of them and put them on his table during the reception. It was absolutely perfect. You could tell she truly cares about her job. I've been to alot of weddings in the last couple of years and I truly feel that the services provided at the milleridge are absolutely the best around.

Amazing October WeddingReviewed on 11/23/2012 Dawn M
We had our wedding on October 28, 2012. It was the night before hurricane sandy so you could imagine how we were feeling knowing the storm was coming. Our maitre'd Pam was amazing! She reassured us that everyone was going to be fine and that the party would still go on. Anything we needed they were there within seconds of needing it. The ambiance was perfect! The food was amazing! The service was excellent! We had the most amazing night! I highly recommend the Milleridge Cottage to anyone getting married!!!

Review for The Milleridge InnReviewed on 5/10/2010 Alison W
The cottage itself was one affair at a time, the staff was amazing, great food choices, great room for all guests, an outdoor patio for cocktail hour, but food was in a pretty enclosed atrium, the decor was historic and elegant, price included reception flowers and place cards, you dodn't need valet parking, but could hire one if you wanted.;The service was so great that we felt the urge to give extra tips to everyone
