    Elegant and Refined

    Where do I begin. I first laid eyes on Historic Hill House, in search of a venue for my wedding, in July. The barn was merely a skeleton of a structure and I had already fallen in love. I met with Michael Bradbury and his enthusiasm and vision were all I needed to know that this was the spot. As the structure began to go up, I almost told him he needed to redo the rendering because it quickly became clear that the actual building was going to surpass what was originally drawn. I anxiously awaited them to find their chef. And was excited to see what gem Mike would find to add to the team. Nothing could have prepared me for the creative flair, expertise and likeability of Chef Josh Slaughter. What the designer of Historic Hill House created and assembled in and around the barn, the new to the property chef, cultivates and compliments with his unique and delicious culinary science.

    Our wedding was everything I dreamed, imagined and more. We had a destination wedding feel, allowing us more time with our out of town family members and I was proud to have those near and dear to me stay in the Hill house cabins and experience everything Hill House Had to offer (Except the pool. It was February after all). The ballroom of the barn is AMAZING. As I get back photos from the wedding, every. single. one. had a beautiful back drop. Inside out and, Historic Hill House is exceptional, extraordinary and just plain gorgeous. The rooms are five star plus. The individual amenities in the rooms are both thoughtful and delicious (a plank with olives, cheese, crackers, fruit and cookies and a smores kit for their fire pit!). Jodie Domengeaux Schrier is a doll and very personable. She will have no trouble booking up Hill House as a destination venue for not only weddings but corporate retreats, reunions, galas and any other large gathering. My only suggestion is for potential clients. Hurry up and book or you may miss your chance. This place is going to be busy .

    Incredibly beautiful property with amazing staff

    My husband and I recently had the pleasure of renewing our vows at the Historic Hill House and Farm and I can’t say enough wonderful things about the experience. The staff are all very professional and incredibly sweet. Alex had every little detail organized and ready. Amanda was our go-to for pretty much everything during our stay and always made sure we were well taken care of. My kids loved her! And Chef Tori wowed us with amazing meals throughout our stay. It was abundantly evident that she loves what she does and my husband is hopeful I picked up some of the tips she shared. We thoroughly enjoyed our scenic walks around the property, roasting marshmallows by the fire and even star gazing while soaking in the gorgeous jacuzzi. Everything was just perfect and exactly what we were looking for. We will DEFINITELY be back soon!
