i went to see the olde mill inn! the coordinator is wonderful and the place was beautiful. i dont know how large your wedding is but they have two dining rooms. we were planning on a smaller wedding so we would have used the room in the the grain house restaurant. i liked that room a lot more that the main ballroom in the olde mill inn. it was more quaint and the dance floor and bar were off to the side and a step down from the table area. they just recently remodeled that room and it opens up to a small patio area which is landscaped wonderfully. the cocktail hour would be help upstairs of the grain house restaurant on a deck. if you had your reception in the inn itself the coctail hour is held in a beautiful courtyard.
the food is said to be amazing and prices per plate were around 110 $ depending on what you want of course.
the only drawback, which made my finace and i rethink this place is their ceremony price is outrageous! $ 35 per person! there was no way i was spending an extra 3500 to exchange our vows under a gazebo which backs right up to rt 287! most places only charge a couple hundred dollars. but if you have the funds...i would definitely reccomend making an appointment to see it for yourself!
good luck and let me know how it goes!
