Nestled under the Escarpment, Ancaster Mill is a place where the pace slows, nature is found, and history recalled. For here is a place that’s existed for centuries and today is regarded as a prime example of a traditional Ontario grist mill. Built in 1792 as part of the village of Ancaster’s industrialization, after a fire, the original mill was rebuilt – this time in stone – and relocated to its current location under a waterfall. Today, renovated and restored, it acts as an evocative reminder of the past. Its creek, waterfall, antique artifacts, hand-hewn beam, and the artisan metalwork all combine to create an inspired place for a wedding.
The romance of Ancaster Mill starts on arrival. With the beautifully restored Miller’s House and the four-storey grist mill, flanked by a waterfall and creek, this is a place of breathtaking beauty. Naturally landscaped by the Escarpment on one side, and complemented by the Mill’s own gardens, the mood is set for a day of sublime enchantment. Upon entry, the visual delights of the interior quickly become apparent: polished antiques and fresh flowers accent the authentic look and feel of the grist mill with quiet grace and unassuming luxury.
