We cannot say enough great things about Stone Mill Inn. We toured 4 venues total for our wedding and none of the other venues came close to what SMI had to offer. From the beautiful landscape to the amazing staff, we were absolutely blown away. They communicated with us continuously throughout our planning, and went above and beyond to make sure our day was exactly how we wanted it to be. The price is very transparent, which is always appreciated when making such an important decision. All of the essentials were provided for us and then some! Absolutely no nickel and dining over silly things like linens and glassware. They make sure you have everything you need. The vendors they recommended were nothing less of outstanding, and their in house catering got raving reviews all night from our guests. Not a single dry chicken dish in the house! Haha The staff was extremely attentive and FUN. We felt like they were a part of our big day and we loved every minute of our time there. As we were expecting bad weather the crew was quick on their feet to make sure our back up plan went off without a hitch, and the tent was so beautiful nobody even knew that wasn’t where the ceremony was supposed to be! For a bride such as myself who doesn’t have a creative bone in her body, these wedding wizards made our day amazing and we still get emotional thinking about it. When is too soon to renew our vows? Because we are looking for any excuse to have them host us again!

Do you remember that feeling when you met your spouse, the hair rose up on your arm, you felt a little tingle in your neck? When my wife and I first walked onto the property at Stone Mill Inn and met the owner Ken and then his wife Karen whom walked us around; we looked at each other, smiled, and at the same time said "This is where we are going to begin our forever." We had that hair raised, chilly feeling on a hot June day in 2020. Over the next calendar year we planned out our dream wedding with the assistance of the entire Stone Mill Inn Staff. They will do whatever they can to go above and beyond to make sure in planning, and then having your big day, you will have the very best day of your life and it is a guarantee that people will talk about it for weeks, months, and I am sure for years to come......

There are not enough positive things that can be said about the Stone Mill Inn and the team behind this beautiful venue. Going back to the first day we stepped foot on the property of the Stone Mill Inn, we were taken back by beauty of the mill and surrounding grounds and ceremony spaces. Shortly after arriving, we were warmly welcomed in as if we were family. This was the kind of introduction that left such an impression on us, we couldn't stop thinking about how kind, welcoming, and professional the staff were, starting with Ken, Karen, and Nicole. After spending hours of research looking at venues and visiting others, we knew we found something special with the Stone Mill Inn. Just speaking on the property alone, you will not find a more beautiful venue with precisely manicured grounds as the Stone Mill Inn offers. The diversity of the landscape paired with the charm of the mill and array of ceremony spaces make the Stone Mill Inn one of the most unique wedding venues out there. There is a magical charm that brought our parents and us to tears when visiting the Stone Mill Inn and in our eyes, no other venue is able to do this. Beyond how beautiful the Stone Mill Inn is as a property and venue, what truly sets it apart is the people. While we can't list out everyone that helped make our day so very special, we'd like to especially thank Ken, Karen, Nicole, Amy, Victoria, and Jim for everything you've done. You have treated us like family and made us feel so very welcome from the moment we first met. Your kindness, generosity, and hard work to make our day become everything we wanted it to be, never went unnoticed. We had so much fun planning out every detail with the staff of the Stone Mill Inn and we'll cherish not only the day of our wedding, but every visit we had (especially the tasting event, yum!). On the day of our wedding, everything was flawless thanks to the team's high degree of professionalism and precise attention to detail. We always felt that all of our needs and wants were taken care of and everyone went out of their way to make our wedding day a day we'll never forget. From the delicious food and courteous staff to the gorgeous mill and serene outdoor spaces, our guests raved about our wedding being the best wedding they had been to, largely thanks to the Stone Mill Inn. While we could go on and on talking about how great the Stone Mill Inn is, there is something about this venue that couples must experience for themselves. If you're considering this venue for your wedding, please do yourself a favor and visit. You'll thank yourself later! And lastly, our utmost thanks to the team at the Stone Mill Inn for everything you've done. We'll always cherish our wedding day and look back knowing we wouldn't change a thing thanks to you all.

My younger sister and her now-husband were married at the Stone Mill Inn this past weekend and I had to immediately leave a review because everything about the day was impeccable, all thanks to Ken and his team at Stone Mill. From beginning to end, every single detail was PERFECT. The house where the women of the wedding party got ready was so spacious. There were beautiful touches and incredible antiques. Every candle was lit, and soft music was playing. They are just so detail-oriented. They made certain that my sister's dream of having her ceremony outdoors was fulfilled (even with threats of rain), and they assisted our elderly relatives with kindness and compassion. During the reception, the coordinators always seemed to be three steps ahead of the game. Every time I frantically asked one of them things like "WHERE ARE HER SHOES?" or "WHERE ARE THE SPARKLERS?" they had already answered the question and dealt with it. There was even a slight day-of crisis involving the cake, and the team handled it calmly themselves - we never even knew that there *almost* was not a wedding cake until the issue was already resolved. Thank you Ken and the incredible team at Stone Mill for making our family's special day so unforgettable.

We visited Stone Mill Inn in early 2021 to choose our wedding venue for 2022, and as soon as we stepped through their Moon Gate, it felt like home, and we knew we had found the right place. When the wedding day came, the skies opened and stayed open almost all day. But other than not being able to get married in the Woodlands, we can honestly say it didn’t change a thing. The ceremony took place in the tent but was just as gorgeous and tear jerking as it would have been outside. The staff turned the tent over in less than five minutes for cocktail hour, and the Mill was the perfect mix of intimate dinner and party place to dance the night away. The level of service from Stone Mill Inn is unparalleled, not just in the wedding industry, but in anything we’ve ever experienced. From a tarped golf cart to ensure the bride didn’t get wet but could still get images in the woods to ensuring the sparkler send off could happen by timing a break in the weather, it was the most perfect day thanks to Stone Mill Inn. Ken & Karen Painter are absolutely incredible hosts; their experience is like no other, and their kindness as humans knows no bounds. Wedding coordinator Amy was the absolute best, and the events manager Jim has an attention to detail only surpassed by his infectious smile. This team at SMI is the best of the best, there’s simply no other way to put it. This is the place to get married, and we’ll never be able to thank them enough for making our day perfect.

I don't even know where to begin with expressing my gratitude to Stone Mill Inn and each team member. From the very beginning of this process, they were incredibly helpful, kind, and knowledgeable. As soon as I walked onto the property I knew I wanted to get married there. I didn't even bother looking at other venues because Stone Mill has everything. You work closely with your wedding coordinator. Victoria, the sweetest person and never was annoyed with my thousand last minute emails. The owners, Ken and Karen, make you feel like the most important couple in the world. I actually felt loved by everyone. I felt apart of their family. The team literally does everything for you and ensures that you don't have to lift a finger. They constantly were checking on me throughout the day. They were extremely helpful with my grandmother who needed transportation across the grounds. They created and organized a beautiful day. I love each team member. I wish I could have a wedding every year just to be in the presence of the beautiful grounds and be surrounded by the Stone Mill Inn team. If you are looking for a venue that does it all and it beyond beautiful in every season....look no further.

My husband and I got married here in July 2021 and it was ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! We felt right at home during our meetings with Ken, Karen, and Nichole. We loved their attention to detail and personalized approach to wedding planning to make sure every piece came together perfectly. The grounds are picturesque and well cared for- from the gardens and landscaping to the walkways and wooded areas- there are endless photo opportunities. The outside tent was ideal for our cocktail hour and first dance to allow for an indoor/outdoor event. The mill itself was cozy and decorated beautifully from centerpieces to warm candles . Our guests loved every part of their dinner- from hors d’oeuvres to main entrees- there are so many delicious options. Wedding planning can be stressful but stone mill inn will help make things easier and allow for an unforgettable wedding experience. Their entire team was lovely to work with-friendly, helpful, accommodating, energetic, and upbeat. Overall, 10/10 would recommend. My sister and brother-in-law got married there soon after us this year. SO good we had to do it twice!

The Stone Mill Inn was an absolutely perfect venue. Ken and Karen are the owners and they are very hands-on and helpful the entire way through the process. They also provide a wedding coordinator, Victoria, who was great and a pleasure to work with. Words in this review can't explain how beautiful and breathtaking the venue itself is, I recommend the Woodlands ceremony site. It has a lot of flowers and a natural beauty to it. The venue also provides their catering service and the food was great, all of our guests complimented just about everything that was there!

When my husband and I first got engaged, we had a very different idea about what our wedding would look like. We wanted something small, classy and intimate and we didn't care if it happened on a weekday. While touring different venues, we felt like no one really understood our vision for a nontraditional wedding. Then we found Stone Mill Inn and everything was perfect! Ken, Karen, Victoria and Kate were all SO kind and incredibly helpful. They customize a contract to what you want, which fit exactly what my husband and I were looking for. On our wedding day, they exceeded every single one of our expectations. The venue was STUNNING, the food was amazing and everyone was so professional and just amazing to work with. Every single one of our guests can't stop talking about our wedding venue and how gorgeous it was. We are so grateful to Stone Mill Inn for letting us have our perfect wedding at one of the most beautiful places in central PA!

It's hard to summarize everything we loved about the Stone Mill Inn for our wedding because we truly could not have imagined a more beautiful space or a better team of people! We loved being about to customize our outdoor ceremony space and have the freedom to make so many creative decisions in the mill & tent areas with the help of our wedding coordinator Victoria. The food was amazing from start to finish, and we had many guests telling us it was the best wedding food they ever had (we personally agree, especially the hors d'oeuvres). It was so nice to know on our wedding day that everything was taken care of by the amazing Stone Mill Inn team, including having the hospitality of Ken & Karen, the owners of the mill, throughout our reception. Victoria, Kate, Ken, Karen, and the entire staff catered to our every need, and it could not have been a more personalized and magical experience for us. If anything went wrong, we definitely didn't know or notice because everything was so perfect from start to finish! If I could give this venue 6 stars out of 5 I would because they are truly that incredible, thoughtful, and attentive. If you want a personalized, highly organized, beautiful, and delicious wedding experience, do not pass up the Stone Mill Inn!

I honestly can’t say enough good things about Stone Mill Inn. From the beginning to the end, the process was seamless. The owner, Ken, and wedding coordinator Nichole at the time and then Victoria worked with me through every step of the planning process and helped me feel so at ease. The main reason we booked this venue, past their beautiful grounds and friendly staff, was the fact they did food in house and had all tables, table cloths, dinnerware, etc all there! I didn’t want to have to go through a rental company for dinning equipment and an extra vendor for food and bartending. They had it all! On top of that, the food was amazing! We had multiple guests come up to us and say it was the best food they had at a wedding. On the day of the wedding, they made all my dreams come to life with decor placement and were there with me all day making sure my husband and I were okay. I truly will recommend Stone Mill Inn to everyone bride I talk to! Thank you Ken, Karen and Victoria for everything! We will never forget your hospitality, helpfulness, and kindness on the best day of our lives.

I still remember the moment we found this venue! After a long day of seeing several properties, we ended our search at The Stone Mill Inn. From the moment we stepped onto the property we were swept up in the beauty and romantic feel the property offered. The owners Ken and Karen have made us feel like family ever since our very first visit. Victoria was by my side during the whole process and made sure everything was exactly how we envisioned. They as well as their staff truly made our wedding day so effortless and beautiful. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure everyone was taken care of throughout the entire day (I was told this often by so many of our guests). All of our guests were blown away by the beauty of the property as well as the food prepared on site. You can really tell that they deeply care about their brides and take great pride in their stunningly beautiful grounds. Everytime we visited there was something new and exciting being added! Words can't describe how truly grateful we are to have found them and so happy that we got to start our new beginning as Husband and Wife with them. Please schedule a tour! You will not regret it.

 The atmosphere here is so inviting and they really make you feel like family. They are extremely responsive to any and all questions I had through the process. We cannot say enough great things about this venue, and if you have any doubts then instantly throw them away and book this place. You will not be disappointed! 

Christina T.

We said yes to the venue without going to look at any others, because we knew it was everything we wanted! And our wedding day truly was amazing. Gorgeous. Delicious food. Wonderful bartenders and staff. Treated Justin and I like gold- brought us our own cocktail hour plate of food, got us drinks, served us first for both dinner and dessert. Listened to every request with a smile on their faces.

Everything was truly amazing and perfect. All reviews for Stone Mill say how perfect everything is and it’s VERY true. Ken and Karen Painter are such wonderful people as work so hard to make your day amazing. Nichole, the coordinator, is just as amazing and from the time you book with them, she is invested in your big day.

Abbey B.

All of the different ceremony sites are breathtaking and each one shows a huge amount of effort and care from Ken. Throughout the whole wedding process we never felt on our own because Nichole talked us through every little detail we could imagine that made our big day effortless and fun. Our guests are still talking about how amazing our wedding was and we owe that to The Stone Mill Inn.

Caitlin B.

The Stone Mill Inn was the first venue we looked at and we knew right away this is where we wanted to get married. Now, two weeks later we still can't get over how perfect our day was here. We cannot think of one thing that went wrong that day and we truly owe it all to the Stone Mill Inn. We wish we could do it all over again!

From the moment that we walked on the property at the Stone Mill Inn, we were in love. We knew that we had to get married on the stunning historic property. We can't thank Ken, Karen, and Nichole enough for making our day so unbelievably special. Their love and passion for the property and weddings was evident in the way they cared for it and how much effort they put into each event — it's honestly one of the main reasons we chose to celebrate our special day there.
