Our son and daughter-in-laws wedding
Our son's wedding was on December 12th. We booked the venue in February before the Covid Pandemic started. We had been so stressed as what to do and if we should cancel. We worked with both Beth and Jewel during this time. We had the wedding and a set down dinner for the wedding party only and rescheduled the reception for next year. Beth and Jewel were amazing to work with. They assured us we would have an awesome wedding on the 12th and dinner afterwards. They were truly amazing throughout all of the planning, answering any and all questions withsuch caring and kindness. We had the most relaxing, wonderful wedding. It was decorated so beautifully. They really went about any expectations we had. The venue was perfect. Our daughter-in-law got her perfect wedding. It was so great to see the bride and groom so happy. The dinner was absolutely amazing. The food was fantastic. We received so many compliments. Than you again for an wonderful experience.Sent on 12/13/2020

Amazing hosts, Gorgeous venue, Simply Perfect
Ranae and Danny were tremendous hosts throughout our entire stay! They worked with us to ensure the health and safety of our family by social distancing and following strict safety measures.Sent on 06/29/2020
The venue on it's own is gorgeous, the rooms were spotless, and the food (generous portions) was divine. The outdoor space for our ceremony was lush and the perfect backdrop for gorgeous photos. Our guests loved spending time exploring the property, enjoying the fire pit and riding bikes all around. They accommodated all of our requests, adding such special touches that made every aspect of our event and stay memorable.
Ranae and Beth responded to every one of our emails within hours if not minutes with emails or phone calls, answering all of our questions, and asking us additional questions to ensure our big day was perfect. We booked our event, sight unseen, 3 weeks before our wedding, and the property far exceeded our expectations; the photos don't do it justice.
There aren't enough words to thank Ranae and Danny, we are so grateful. Millsite will hold a special place in our hearts forever.
The Colonnade's reply:Thank you Rad for thanking the time to leave a thoughtful review. Who would’ve thought after a simple phone call Washington DC to Sandusky you would have everything planned and ready to go in just 3 weeks! This was a Covid testing year of 2020, but we love a challenge! :-) I’m so happy that you enjoyed everything, Ranae and Dan do a great job hosting events at Millsite. We hope that The NorthCoast of Ohio lures you back again!
