Such a nice and accommodating venue. This is an amazing wedding venue with the best views in the state, the friendliest staff, and an impressive array of ceremony and reception locations.Sent on 06/03/2018
Not to mention their guest accommodations and working farm. Would give 100 stars if I could!

We stayed at Cedarcrest Manor after our engagement party as an “engagement getaway” before moving into our new place together. Since December is a slower season, we had the entire home to ourselves where we enjoyed filling breakfasts, and in the evenings we enjoyed tasty dinners nearby. The chefs were always personable and it was nice to know that the produce came from the farm. Everyone that we met was friendly and accommodating so we recommend this destination to anyone looking for a relaxing country getaway.Sent on 12/20/2017

My husband and I couldn't have been happier with Overlook Farm as our wedding Venue. Hannah, Bethany, and the entire team was so great to work with and responded as soon as they could, especially considering they had weddings every weekend leading to our's! Bethany and Hannah even kept me calm through the stress of changing the event location after our forecast changed from sunny to overcast and cold by meeting with me, helping add decorations, and assuring me constantly that everything would be perfect and beautiful -- and it was! The food was delicious, the service was top notch, and we will always remember how accomodating and kind everyone was as we worked together to plan the event.Sent on 02/02/2013
The one downside was that there were 3-4 staff changes about a year through 6 months before our wedding, which led to a little confusion when discussing details with event planners. BUT! Once we told the new event coordinators what we wanted they remembered. We would not change a thing about our day with Overlook Farm and will come back to enjoy a delicious meal and romantic accomodations often!
