What a wonderful venue with equally wonderful staff. The entire process with them was so easy. We worked with their coordinator and she (Kim F.) held our hand the entire process. The owner,Lisa, was also helpful and was creative with her food selections, and always listening to our thoughts. The grounds are beautiful- cannot say enough how happy we were with the venue and staff.Sent on 05/28/2021

Perfect and beautiful venue!
Lisa, Kim, Melissa and the staff at the Mill were above and beyond spectacular. During our first visit back in March 2020 (right before everything shut down due to COVID), we knew we found our perfect venue. Everything from the beautiful landscape to the creek to the cottage charm - it was everything we could've ever dreamed of. COVID caused a lot of uncertainty, but the Mill was always there for us and maintained an open line of communication. Our wedding day finally arrived and it was a total dream come true. Our guests were raving about how naturally beautiful this venue is, the accommodating staff, and of course, how tasty the food was! We highly recommend The Mill to future couples!Sent on 06/09/2021

We have been working with The Mill at Fine Creek for years and hear endless compliments on the service and process. A true Central Virginia gem!
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.
