    A Perfect Wedding

    The Cloth Mill at the Eno River made for the perfect venue for our wedding. The venue is a gloriously renovated mill that boasts a spacious interior and courtyard. It makes for a very flexible space where guests can celebrate safely indoors or out (a must during COVID times).

    The venue is run by Nicole Clayton and her team. Nicole is a dream to work with. Her kind, no nonsense style and experience kept us grounded throughout the planning process. She's also a vendor matching guru. She helped us select the most perfect team to help us execute the vision for our wedding. She and her team exceeded our expectations and we would recommend the Cloth Mill at Eno River to anyone looking for a great venue space. We will work with her again the next time we plan a big event Hillsborough.

    A Wonderful Venue in Hillsborough

    We had a wonderful evening at the Cloth Mill for our (mostly) post-pandemic wedding ceremony and reception! We started working with Nicole in 2019, planning what we thought would be a traditional wedding and reception evening. Then, the pandemic struck. Nicole facilitated a smooth rescheduling process, provided regular updates on health and safety measures, and worked with us to ensure our guests would be able to celebrate safely. Leading up to the weekend, Nicole was so responsive and helped us set up and choose our bar package. During the wedding and reception, she and her staff seemed to be everywhere at once, making sure everything looked fantastic, that guests had drinks, and that there were no issues with our other vendors. After our ceremony, Nicole was one of the first to congratulate us and checked in with us throughout the evening. She and her staff really helped create a happy, positive atmosphere and our guests were extremely complimentary in their interactions. The space itself is spacious, elegant, and the outdoor courtyard was a lovely backdrop for our ceremony and photos! The space was super clean and the bridal/grooms (or groom and groom) suites were perfectly appointed and comfortable. Even though the venue is a little tucked away, our guests had no trouble finding their way and told us they thought the space was so perfect for our wedding. We could not be happier to have had our wedding at the Cloth Mill and highly recommend it!

    A magical experience with a lifelong impression

    The Cloth Mill is a beautiful venue in Hillsborough, NC. When it came to planning our wedding we looked everywhere from Durham to Raleigh to Chapel Hill and were left dissatisfied with either the venue, the staff, or the customer service. Then we toured the Cloth Mill and met Nicole Clayton.

    The venue is breath-taking and Nicole is the consummate professional. She also has a list of vendors that were extremely easy to work with and were affordable. We were able to have our dream wedding with the budget we anticipated.

    Nicole nailed every aspect of what we needed and more. You also have the option of using her as your ‘day of wedding’ coordinator which I would recommend. She does this everyday and nailed everything we requested. After all of the changes and time we spent talking with her, she almost feels like family.

    I would strongly recommend The Cloth Mill over any of the highly priced venues in the triangle.

Even if this gem of a venue wasn't in my awesome little town of Hillsborough, I would still love it! It's my favorite type of venue - urban chic. It's spacious if you're throwing the biggest wedding of the year, but also able to host an intimate affair. No matter the size, if you're looking for a trendy and uber cool venue, this is it!
