About Millsite Lodge

Located in the idyllic landscape of Sandusky, Ohio, Millsite Lodge is a countryside retreat that turns wedding events into romantic and elegant celebrations. A picturesque fishing stream meanders by the venue, which is always stocked with trout. Sycamore and other mature trees dot the grounds, offering shade while adding a touch of whimsy. The lodge and the rest of the site offer pastoral settings for rustic “I dos.”

Facilities and Capacity

Millsite Lodge can accommodate weddings of between 50 to upwards of 300 people. The venue can also cater to multiple nuptial events, giving you the option of spreading your wedding across a memorable weekend. The farmhouse on the property features six bedrooms, ideal for you and your wedding party after the rehearsal dinner. There are even on-site dressing rooms where you can relax and prepare for the big day. If you are hoping to host a celebration with 300 or more guests, the covered patio offers an elegant outdoor space complete with chandeliers. The restored 1880s barn functions as another reception space. It is situated one mile away from Millsite Lodge at The Oak at Millsite Farm and it has a capacity of 200 people. The Oak also features a cabin that provides accommodation for eight. Whatever your plans, hosting a magical wedding weekend is simple at this charming countryside refuge.

Services Offered

The family-operated venue’s enthusiastic and talented team strives to make planning stress free. With 18 years of experience in the industry, they offer personalized services, like a decor package to help you transform the space. The staff also provides catering through The Colonnade for receptions, rehearsal dinners, Sunday brunches, and more.

Location

There are countless things to do in and around Millsite Lodge. You can arrange to go fishing in the stream to catch trout to be grilled up later. If you’re a nature lover, you might be interested in the plane and ferry trips that explore the Lake Erie Islands. Along Sandusky Bay, you and your sweetheart can enjoy bird watching as the area is a significant route for migrating birds. There are also 12 wineries located in the 30 miles around the lodge, for a relaxing afternoon tasting local creations.

    Absolutely amazing!

    The family and staff of Millsite Lodge went above and beyond to give us our perfect fall wedding. The first time I met with Ranae and Beth I felt so comfortable with them. They answered all of my questions with such kindness, they calmed my nerves and I fell absolutely in love with Millsite Lodge. My husband and I are from Cleveland and I never thought we would drive an hour outside of our favorite city to get married, but Millsite is such a special and beautiful place. EVERYTHING was perfect. From the houses we stayed in for the weekend, the beautiful rehearsal dinner (the caramel apple cheesecake dessert I still dream about), the wedding morning breakfast, Devon and his team that did our beautiful decor and the Colonnade who made our delicious wedding food! I cannot say enough how many people still tell us how amazing our wedding food was! The chicken marsala was out of this world! I cannot thank Ranae and Beth enough for such a perfect wedding weekend!

    Mr & Mrs Tony Haerr

    Millsite lodge is the absolute perfect location for a wedding. It has multiple beautiful locations to hold your ceremony that can accommodate a small ceremony or a large ceremony and The reception space is perfect.

    It’s so convenient having everything happen at one location. Our entire bridal party was able to stay on site for the whole weekend.

    Ranae & Dan are so accommodating and awesome to work with! They are always there to help in any way they can to make sure your event turns out perfect!
