The Mill at Manor Falls is a wedding venue located in Millersville, Pennsylvania. This restored flour mill is a historical gem in the Lancaster area, and now offers a rustic yet elegant setting for soon-to-be-weds. The scenic grounds are surrounded by flourishing woods by the creekside for outside nuptials or nature-inspired photo sessions.
Facilities and Capacity
The Mill at Manor Falls has enough indoor space to hold weddings and receptions with as many as 160 guests, or as few as 10. Originally built in 1831, the mill was lovingly restored and renovated in 2018, when it became open to the public. Outside of the big day, the event space can be used for wedding showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners. The main reception hall features visible wood beams and a quaint brick fireplace, with get-ready rooms and gallery on the second floor. The entire indoor space is climate controlled, and suitable for any season. The outdoor area features a romantic stone path to lead you through the lush woods to a breathtaking waterfall, ideal for photo opportunities or as a unique backdrop to say your vows. The main outdoor venue space sits on manicured lawns with a picturesque view of the forest, with an old stone bridge crossing over Little Conestoga Creek. A rustic arch sits in front of the forest, and can be decorated with your personal touches to match your theme. The location is only minutes away from downtown Lancaster, which has plenty of accommodations, restaurants, and historical landmarks.
The team at the Mill at Manor Falls only host one event per day, making you free to enjoy the private, secluded estate. Tables and chairs will be provided for you, and will be set up to any indoor or outdoor arrangement you want. Parking is available on site for your guests convenience, along with wheelchair accessibility and shuttle services. You will be free to select the caterer you want, and the staff will have a list of their favorite vendors for inspiration.

Brianna K. · Getting married on 03/11/2021
We were scheduled to have our wedding reception at the Mill back in the end of March 2020. Then about a week and a half before our date, the COVID lockdown happened and we had to make the difficult decision to postpone the "big event" portion and just have a private ceremony. But Laura was so helpful and understanding, and we were able to reschedule the reception for middle of November without any issues. Working with Laura was wonderful -- she's very kind and willing to answer any questions you have. She made everything so easy. And the venue itself is absolutely gorgeous. The grounds are beautiful and the charm of the Mill makes it so easy to have a lovely event there, without having to do much decorating. It's already beautiful! Also, for the brides-to-be out there, the bridal suite for getting ready is AMAZING. Our hair stylists couldn't stop raving about it being one of the nicest "getting ready" spaces they've been to. Anyway, I can't say enough good things about our wedding event at the Mill. You won't regret having your event there and working with Laura and Don. My husband and I have technically had 2 "weddings" this year -- if we could have a third, we'd book the Mill again in a heartbeat. ;)Sent on 11/22/2020
The Mill at Manor Falls's reply:Thank you Brianna and Matt for your kind words. It was heartbreaking that you could not have your wedding as planned, but you had such good attitudes about it and were so easy to work with to reschedule. It was fun seeing you celebrate for the 2nd time and we were so honored to host all of you at The Mill. Don and I wish you all the best in your new journey through life together.

Old Mill with Modern Amenities
If you’re looking for quintessential Lancaster County charm in a building with all the modern amenities, look no further than The Mill at Manor Falls! Laura and Don have done an incredible job refurbishing a piece of history into an absolutely beautiful wedding venue. The Mill is located on gorgeous picturesque grounds, with a nearby waterfall and creek that make you feel like you’re in your own completely private world, even though you have all the conveniences nearby. As soon as we saw this venue, we knew immediately that it would be perfect for our late September wedding.Sent on 10/14/2020
Laura was fantastic and very professional to work with through the entire process, giving us plenty of time to explore the venue, addressing the COVID concerns that are currently happening, and responding promptly to all inquiries. Laura has a selection of well-known vendors in the area that are great to work with, but she’s very accommodating to anyone you would choose for your reception.
The actual mill has two full floors (and we’d love to see the completed third floor one day!). The first floor reception area is a beautifully re-done reception room that only needed some basic table linens, arrangements and flowers to dress up. Our reception was just under 100 people and no one felt cramped or confined inside with our served buffet, bar and DJ setup. The upstairs has a spacious, private bridal suite, though the groom’s quarters were a little snug – but both areas were very well-done with all the amenities you would need. There’s also a spacious open room that could also hold a cocktail hour during inclement weather and served as a great overflow from the bridal suite and groom's quarters (with a kitchenette area and gorgeous fireplace). The surrounding grounds have flowers in bloom spring through fall and will definitely make your photos pop!
Overall our guests still haven’t stopped complimenting us on how beautiful the whole wedding experience was and we’re so grateful for Laura and Don’s hospitality in helping to make our dream wedding come true - and all within less than four months of the proposal! Thank you again Laura and Don, and wish you the best with many more receptions to come at the Mill at Manor Falls!
The Mill at Manor Falls's reply:Thank you, Laura and Andrew, for choosing The Mill for your wedding celebrations. It was an honor to have a part in your amazing day that you put together in just a few months. You brought The Mill to life and made everything beautiful and a reflection of the 2 of you. I wish you a lifetime of happiness!!!

This place left us speechless!
First off, this place is absolutely amazing. The property is extremely well kept and just unlike any other venue we looked at. The Owners (Laura and Don) were very kind and helpful. The property is huge and there are a lot of nice places for pictures, so your photographer can get creative. There are also multiple places to put the altar if you want to get creative with that too, depending on the number of guests. The mill itself is beautifully restored and to be honest we were kind of in shock when we walked in. We immediately knew it was the place for us. Its one of those places you must see in person because pictures just don’t do it the justice it deserves. They have a huge bridal suite complete with its own bathroom, couches, counters and multiple mirrors for getting hair and make-up done. There is a smaller grooms suite, but it was perfect for what we needed since we are really only just getting dressed. There is a nice outdoor stamped concrete patio for cocktail hour or if the weather isn’t cooperating there is a smaller dining area upstairs that this can also be held. The entire wedding from start to clean up went smoothly. If you want something a little different than the typical ballroom or barn wedding venue this is definitely your place!Sent on 01/05/2021
