    FH and I wanted to scout out this venue beforehand, so as a surprise for his birthday I booked a one-night stay with a massage for him the following day, and of course added a few romantic touches. Everyone was professional, informative, and thorough. Everything went off without ... View more without a hitch, and DF loved his massage (he'd never been to a spa before, and now he insists on going back there for our anniversary!). Venue is very spread out over the grounds, quaint, rustic feel. We decided it might not be the best venue for us because we are having a larger wedding, but if you were to have a 50 person wedding, it would be idyllic.

    Very impressed

    The staff were amazing, the food was awesome (we got so many compliments on the menu) and the venue was beautiful. The hotel rooms are an excellent option for out of town guests. The only downside was, I did not get many of my decor items back. When I asked about them, I got an apology saying the staff hasn't seen my items. Other than that, everything was perfect.

    Staff was friendly and very accommodating to my requests. Guests thought it was a stunning venue and raved about how good the food was! They also loved the option of being able to stay overnight and plenty of parking for everyone else.

    We cannot thank the Elm Hurst Staff enough for all of their above and beyond guidance, making our day incredibly special for us both! Right from our initial visit with Erin, to our 48 Hour meeting with Chantal and Mike, they truly removed all the stress in organizing our big day. ... View more Chantal was incredibly prompt in answering my countless emails, reassuring me of all the small details that did not go unnoticed. We were able to completely relax and enjoy our day, knowing everything and everyone was in good hands! They truly provide exceptional service!!
