History
Originally built in 1912 as summer home for the Wycoff family, the Sullivan family purchased the property in 1932 and opened Hill Top Inn on July 3, 1933. While the building has been expanded and upgraded throughout the years to accommodate private events, the original hardwood floor and large stone fireplace are the centerpiece of the restaurant. Now over 85 years later, the third and fourth generation Sullivan family to own the restaurant are still here daily to care for our guests every day.

Location
Hill Top Inn is a half a mile from Interstate 86 in Elmira, close enough to find but far enough to be a peaceful location. There are over 15 hotel accommodations within ten minutes of the venue, and Elmira is home to the Elmira Corning Airport.

    Beyond Impressed!

    Thanks to Marley and the wonderful staff at Hill Top, my wife and I were able to truly enjoy our wedding, and not stress out during the wedding planning process. A few things that really stood out:

    1. The service is incredible. Marley and team did a fantastic job at listening to our ideas and needs throughout the wedding planning process, and addressed our every question with a sense of urgency and professionalism. I cannot stress how important this is to a couple juggling a thousand things at once. This ultimately culminated in a perfect wedding day.

    2. The food!! We did a brunch buffet that included a balance of hearty breakfast foods and Hill Top signature dishes (potato au gratin, etc.). Every guest loved it! Did I mention they also offer bottomless mimosas, Irish coffee and spiked hot chocolate?

    3. The view... my word! It shouldn't come as a surprise that Hill Top Inn is situated on top of a hill, which grants breathtaking views of the forest, river and city below. Our wedding was in mid September, which provided the added bonus of he changing foliage.

    4. Spot on day-of organization. Marley and team were phenomenal at guiding and directing our 150+ guests, and making sure everything went smoothly. Simply an amazing job overall.

    Great job by Hilltop Team

    The Hill Top Inn team did a great job for our daughter’s wedding in October er.

    The wedding and reception were beautiful. The food was great. Everything went off like clockwork. The team’s hard work was evident throughout the day, they were efficient and effective. Kaylee's personal attention to detail was obvious.

    We especially appreciate their flexibility and can-do attitude as we changed plans during the day as the weather deteriorated. The worsening weather ended up having no affect on everyone’s good time.

    The wedding and reception were so enjoyable, our nephew was inspired to propose to his girl friend at our house later that evening! Clearly the great work by the team influenced his decision!
