Owners Heather and Chelsey were amazing to work with from the very start. That was important to us as we live in California and were planning the wedding from across the country. We reserved the venue over a year ago when the renovations of the barn, pad and tent weren't complete, but had faith that the promised overall would be amazing. And we were not disappointed!Sent on 07/19/2017
The barn is stunning- with open windows and doors on both sides- perfect for dancing and can accommodate an 8 piece band. They have also redone the "stables" which makes for a perfect cocktail party location- just off the barn so a perfect location.
The tent and concrete pad easily accommodated our 145 guests - lighting in the tent and flowers surrounding completed the look. The 11' farm tables were gorgeous, as were the chairs.
We did not have the actual wedding ceremony on the property, but the first look and other photos were done at the ceremony location - beautiful with a wonderful view of Keuka Lake.
As to the house- it is gorgeous, especially the kitchen and master bathroom. We rented the house for the day- and the bride, bridesmaids and other women family members got dressed there, as well as were served a great breakfast and lunch.
And I have to talk about the food- when was the last time you were at a wedding and everyone raved about the meal? Heather is a terrific, accomplished chef. From the tasting menu back in March, to the breakfast and lunch for the bride and bridesmaids, to the appetizers ( quality and quantity! I would highly recommend the stationery cheese/veggie/antipasta bar) and family style dinner, it was all amazing.
And the highest compliment- so many of our guests were talking about possible events they could hold at this venue- we are hoping to do the same. Thank you, Chelsey and Heather, for making this past weekend a success. You are the best!

A dream come true
Chelsey and Heather from Crispin Hill- You two had our hearts from the first time meeting with you to check out your beautiful venue in the depths of winter. We appreciated the fact that you asked what our story was, how we met and came to be a couple. You also dug into what our overall vision was for our wedding day. You listened to us before you even told us about what you could do to help make our dreams reality. You cared to get to know us and that meant the world to us. We love how you created such a beautiful place together through your own love for each other. All of those things plus your willingness to help along the way and Heather’s awesome food, sold us!! We couldn’t have had as magical of a day without the two of you and Crispin Hill. We are forever grateful to the two of you, and your amazing staff. 💕🥰Sent on 07/15/2019

More than we could have ever imagined!
I can't say enough wonderful things about Chelsey, Heather and their venue, Crispin Hill. My husband and I had booked our wedding at Crispin Hill prior to seeing it in person and had only saw it covered in snow prior to our wedding. From day 1, we both felt extremely confident in Chelsey as she was kind, well organized, easy to work with, saw our vision and supported all ideas we had to make our day unique to us. Without her guidance we would have never been able to plan our wedding from 300 miles away.Sent on 06/03/2019
We chose all vendors Chelsey had recommended (Foote Florals, Alexandra Elise Photography, Keuka Taxi, FLE Event Group, PIzzacatomus String Quartet, Microtel PY); all of which were lovely to work with and exceeded our expectations!
Heather is equally as amazing! Her food is absolutely delicious and the portions were huge! She recommended pairings that did not disappoint and did not hesitate to customize anything to make it perfect for us. She even provided a delicious breakfast and lunch for the girls getting ready at the farmhouse day of. My mouth is watering thinking of those strawberry & chèvre phyllo cups!
Our wedding was more than we could have ever dreamed of! The farmhouse, view, beautiful reception set up, rustic but chic barn for dancing, food and seamless flow day of was all amazing. Our guests are still raving over the beautiful venue and delicious food. We are forever grateful for Chelsey and Heather who made our wedding planning easy and wedding day absolutely perfect!
I would highly recommend Crispin Hill! You will not be disappointed.

WOW what a perfect wedding!
If you are looking for a stunning view, a gorgeous venue, a 5 star meal, exceptional service, great advice, and planning help the whole way from start to finish, you really can just go ahead and pick Crispin Hill right away. Every part of our wedding went perfectly. That is in no small part to the team at Crispin Hill. Chelsey was always available to make sure everything went according to plan and we could not have been happier. They really go the extra mile to make your wedding as perfect as possible. My wife and I will be forever grateful that they helped give us a wedding that was perfect from start to finish. Definitely hire them and you will not regret it.Sent on 10/22/2018

Amazing venue, and even more incredible are Chelsey and Heather. Chelsey was so great at guiding me through the wedding planning process and listening to my incessant questions. Heather did an amazing job with our food. From the tasting to the rehearsal dinner, then cocktail hour and dinner the food was excellent and our guests agreed. The bridesmaids stayed at the farmhouse the night before, and everything ran really smoothly the day of our wedding. Thank you so much for making our day special!Sent on 10/10/2018

Chelsey & Heather were the absolute best to work with, and Crispin Hill was a dream! I cannot count the number of compliments we received on our wedding—on the food quality & presentation, the venue's stunning scenery overlooking the lake, the flow of the different areas for ceremony, cocktail hour and reception, the gorgeous house we stayed at on site. Everything came together beautifully. So many of our guests told us it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. My husband and I felt taken care of by Chelsey & Heather throughout the whole process. They accommodated our needs from out of state, answered my millions of questions, advocated for us with vendors, & executed our vision seamlessly and with care. Heather is an incredibly talented chef who worked with us to customize a menu that represented us. She truly cared about meeting our needs and is just a really cool person on top of that. Chelsey knows how to get things done, and with kindness! She sent us weather updates and reassured it would all work out (it did!), helped think of ways to honor my father at the ceremony, and despite how many weddings they host every year, she made us feel like we were the only couple getting married this year. We truly feel lucky to have shared our day with Chelsey & Heather, and hope to stay in touch with them well past our wedding because they are wonderful people! You will not regret hosting your wedding at Crispin Hill — it was the best decision we could have made for our wedding!Sent on 06/13/2018

Picture perfect venue in the Finger Lakes!
My fiance and I knew we were going to get married on Keuka Lake, it was just a matter of figuring out where. After some research, we set out to look at venues. None of them felt right, until we visited Crispin Hill- the moment we set foot there, we knew it was the place we were going to get married. It is such a beautiful, peaceful location, overlooking Keuka. We loved the fact that the ceremony and reception would be in the same location, and couldn't get over how beautiful everything was!Sent on 11/05/2018
Chelsey and Heather were so amazing. From the first time we met them to see Crispin Hill, they were warm, welcoming, friendly, helpful, and truly interested in helping us plan our wedding. Chelsey was so quick to reply to all my questions, whether email or text. We loved chatting with Heather about the menu, and the food that came out that day was perfect. Choosing Crispin Hill as our venue was the first big decision we made in wedding planning, and it was the easiest decision we made since we knew our wedding there would be perfect!

Crispin Hill gave me the most perfect wedding. The house is draw dropping beautiful over looking Keuka Lake. Chelsey was so helpful in planning everything we needed. Heathers cooking is to die for! None of our guest had anything negative to say about the service, food or venue. All our comments were "the nicest wedding they've ever been to." Everything was so well organized. My dream wedding came true.Sent on 08/30/2018

If you are thinking about having your Wedding at Crispin Hill, JUST DO IT! You will not regret it I promise you! Chelsey and Heather were AMAZING! All of our guests said that our wedding was the best one that they have ever been to hands down. My family and I are definitely foodies and Heather's cooking far exceeded expectations. BEST WEDDING FOOD EVER! We had our rehearsal dinner in the barn the night before our wedding. It was so beautifully put together and once again the food was AMAZING. Chelsey helped with rehearsal and made sure that we were all ready to go and felt confident in everything that would be happening the next day. Leading up the wedding, My husband and I had a year and a half engagement. Every little question we had for Chelsey, she responded to us right away. Crispin Hill took care of every single detail to make sure that our Wedding would be great. My wedding party and I stayed in the Crispin Hill house the night before and then just my Husband and I the next day. Definitely stay in the house! It is BEAUTIFUL and it made everything so convenient for our friends and family. We took the most amazing pictures in the house and it made getting ready with the girls and relaxing so easy! My wedding was everything I have ever dreamed of and MORE. I cried when it was time to leave as Crispin Hill now forever hold a place in my heart. Chelsey and Heather, our families and Jake and I cannot thank the two of you and your staff enough. Thank you so much for giving us the best day of our lives!Sent on 08/27/2018

Heather and Chelsey at Crispin Hill could not have been greater to work with. They were always available, and open and willing to help us plan and pull off our perfect wedding. The venue was spectacular, food was amazing, and the staff was there to take care of us and our guests in any way needed. We loved everything about our day and feel we can't thank Heather and Chelsey enough. 148Sent on 07/26/2018

The Best of The Best!
Chelsey was an awesome person to work with! She was always great about getting back to me quickly with my many questions. I love that she had a timeline ready for us and we loved how smoothly everything went the day of the wedding. We also loved the food tasting with Heather- her food is so good! The guests loved everything from the venue, to the food, and the extremely friendly staff. We are so glad we chose Crispin Hill as our wedding venue.Sent on 07/23/2019

Crispin Hill is a dream wedding venue. The entire property is beautiful, from the ceremony location overlooking the lake to the big red barn with its string lights and giant windows. Our wedding was everything we wanted and more, thanks to Chelsey and Heather. They are THE MOST accommodating and helpful hosts. They opened their home to us (the gorgeous house itself is a huge selling point!) and were able to recommend several other vendors (Keuka Taxi for transportation, Wegmans for flowers, and Chef Heidi for desserts- all were huge hits!). Since we had a destination wedding and no wedding planner, I was worried about setup not looking the way I envisioned when planning. However, Chelsey made sure everything was just as I wanted- it was gorgeous, and I should have known I had no reason at all to worry. Throughout the process, Chelsey answered all of my questions promptly (and trust me, I had A LOT). She was wonderful to work with. Heather is equally wonderful, and she is a food genius. Seriously, her food is so good, and she is willing to customize anything to meet your needs. My husband and I are big foodies, so we really wanted our guests to enjoy the food at our wedding. They certainly did. Aside from food, Heather even created two signature drinks for us- a Moscow mule, and a rosemary-cucumber gimlet. Our guests were huge fans of both. If you are on the fence at all about booking Crispin Hill, just do it. You will not regret it. We did not want our weekend to end. THANK YOU, Chelsey & Heather!!Sent on 08/18/2017

Chelsey and Heather at Crispin Hill provided us with an amazing experience for our wedding. The venue was beautiful, the event went off with just the one hitch, and the food was fantastic. What we appreciated most was how many local vendors they knew who could fulfill other needs for us ie. flowers, cake, shuttle, watching our dog. They really do put in the extra work to make your special day perfect. The wedding party also was lucky enough to be able to stay in their on site guest house, which has been redone beautifully and made for some great moments for the group. Cannot recommend them more!Sent on 06/30/2017

I would highly recommend this venue to all future brides! My guests have not stopped calling me telling me how outstanding the hospitality, food and scenery was.

If you're looking for an event center and want true value for your money with outstanding food, service and scenery, you can't beat Crispin Hill. Owners Heather and Chelsey catered to our every need. Heather Tompkins was formerly trained at the CIA (Culinary Institute of America at Hyde Park, NY) and it shows. The food presentation was beautiful and the food itself outstanding! They both pay particular attention to detail and the views of Keuka Lake are spectacular! Can not say enough good things about this venue. You won't be disappointed here!Sent on 09/03/2016

Working with Chelsey was a dream. She helped us plan an event and remained calm, cool, and gracious under pressure (exactly what you need when planning an event like a wedding). Believe me, we caused a lot of stress with constant changes and problems! The food was delicious and beautiful and they helped us to put on a memorable event that people are still talking about. I recommend Crispin Hill 100%. And being from Brooklyn, and a bit of a foodie, I was really happy to find such great food in the Finger Lakes.Sent on 09/01/2016

Chelsey and Heather catered our wedding at the Cracker Factory in Geneva, NY this past June. We both enjoy food and cooking so this was a very important part to our wedding. They went above and beyond our expectations. They provided us with a great food tasting and we were really able to get a good idea of taste and presentation. Heather is an excellent chef with lots of creativity and will work with your ideas, likes and dislikes. We showed a few pictures of the vision we had for the appetizer station and it came out better than we ever expected. There were many guests coming up to us that night saying how great all the food was.Sent on 08/30/2016
We also had Chelsey handle all of the coordination the day of and she kept everything on time and running smoothly. She even arranged and set up my beautiful dessert table with desserts that we had provided.
They were easy to work with and provided top quality service. We would highly recommend them and their team!!
