One part gardens, part breathtaking historic ruins and part rustic venue. That’s The Old Mill.
Tucked away in Rose Valley, The Old Mill is perfect for nature lovers. Its location intersects a 12-acre wildlife and bird sanctuary with the grounds of Ridley Creek.
Make your cocktail hour unforgettable with drinks and hors d’oeuvres in the rustic courtyard ruins that are something out of a dream.
The timber pavilion is yet another option for cocktails and conversation before proceeding to the ballroom for your dinner reception. Each building carries the details of the Arts & Crafts style tradition from the 1870s when the structure was built. The Old Mill is registered as a national historic site.

Cross the wooden bridge lined with seasonal flowers to the tranquility of Pomme amid tall trees, thoughtful gardens, and swans on a pond.
Adjacent to the pond is a patio area with bistro lighting perfect for cocktails and conversation. On the other side of the bridge is a stream and a giant swing just asking for a gentle push.
