    Highly, Highly Recommend

    From the very first tour at The Mill, my fiance and I were sold. They are truly the most accommodating and friendly staff I’ve ever met at a venue. The entire day went so smoothly and I can’t thank this team enough for that. Colleen and Stephanie were an absolute delight to work with and kept me calm throughout the whole process. Lisa is a magician in the kitchen and our guests are still raving about the food! Not to mention Pierre’s delicious, beautiful cake. Everything was so perfect, including the cottages and the beautiful grounds. I just can’t say enough good things about The Mill. I don’t have a single regret or complaint. I highly recommend this venue to everyone, you won’t be sorry.

    Absolutely magical!

    This was truly the venue of my dreams and I feel so lucky to live close by! It was like something out of a fairytale, which is pretty much what I was looking for. Both the grounds and the buildings were beautiful, clean, and pristine, the food (did I mention they have onsite catering and pastries??) was to die for and I swear I'd go to any restaurant of theirs if they had one, and the staff was so sweet and helpful all the time. We couldn't have had our dream wedding without this place and for that we are forever grateful!

    The Mill at Fine Creek is one of my favorite venues. The staff is really on task, which is important if you want your wedding to come off without a hitch. Just as important, though, is the site itself. It is historic, with ties to Thomas Jefferson himself. The grounds are well maintained--with blooming flowers throughout the spring, summer and fall. The ruins are strung with lights so it is really just the place for a late afternoon or evening wedding if your guest list in on the short side. It is also a draw that their is a reception area on site. Again, this is fine venue.

    The Mill at Fine Creek is such a historic venue and one of my personal favorites. So much so I had my own wedding here. Their food rivals the best restaurants in town. Colleen and Lisa are amazing to work with. I'm confident that every event held here is flawless and you certainly won't find a more gorgeous back drop to make such monumental memories.
