Nestled under the Escarpment, Ancaster Mill is a place where the pace slows, nature is found, and history recalled. A romantic location next to a waterfall and on the banks of a stream, the historic and utterly scenic ambience of Ancaster Mill paves the way for a perfect wedding.
“The team at Ancaster was fantastic! Every staff member that I spoke to went above and beyond my expectations on my wedding day! Nycole Stevenson helped me organize and plan out my day leading up to and Christina was incredible to have the day of my wedding! I honestly couldn’t have imagined anything better. On top of the amazing service was the food that was to die for! Our wedding meal was the best meal I have ever tasted. Every guest called us to tell us how amazing their meal was. All in all, this was the most amazing experience we have ever had and would hands down recommend the Ancaster Mill to anyone! We also plan to visit for special events and anniversaries to come!”
