Georgina, Thank you for all of the support in helping plan our wedding! We loved getting to work with you to bring to the life our special day !
Thank you Rachel and Mat

Thank you again so much for letting us use your property it was a beautiful day and I wouldn't have changed a thing.

Hi Ron and Georgina,
After the flower show a couple of weeks ago, my mom and I had the wonderful opportunity to stroll through your gardens behind the Mill. It struck me what a lovely spot you had created for Chesley both inside the hall and outside with the gardens. You have done so much for this town and I wanted you to know how much it was appreciated.
Best regards,

Thank you so much for all your help before, as well as the day of our wedding. We really enjoyed being able to stroll through the gardens in the evening. They are beautiful! Your venue was a perfect spot for a special day!
Andrea and Nadia

Dear Ron and Georgina,
Thanks to you for another terrific Christmas party for lands in Forrest consulting. We so appreciate all you do to make our gathering a special celebration for our staff and as always the meal was absolutely delicious.
With much thanks,
Jesse and Ashley Henrich

My daughter Kimberly and Rob got married here on August 24, 2019. What an amazingly beautiful venue. The gardens were so enticing to walk through, the river so serene in the backdrop and all the water features so calming. Georgina and her husband Ron, absolutely bent over backwards to help in anyway they could. The decoration sure popped once assembled inside their hall. It looked like a fantasyland. The food was delicious, perfectly seasoned/cooked and plentiful – so many Compliments on the meal. I would highly recommend the Klages Mill and garden for a venue to host a variety of events. Thank you again to the Klages family for helping to make their wedding day a spectacular day to remember.

Good morning Georgina,

Marion and I are finally getting a chance to sit back and reflect on our anniversary party from this past Saturday. There’s so many things that went well, too many to list here. But I’ll list a few… The Mill itself, the way you and Jaime decorated it, the meal (Many, many good comments about the food), and how well everything fit together, will be good memories for us for a long time.
Thank you so much for all that you did, for your attention to details, and for taking care of all our guests. We heard that you made up a meal for Doug who couldn’t be there because of a work crisis. Little things like that (As well as a gluten free salad) Speak volumes about what you offer at the mill.

Many many thanks,
Doug and Marion

Hi Georgina
Thank you so much for the lovely Christmas dinner last week! Everyone really enjoyed the meal, were very impressed with the venue and of course the service. The women especially thought it was a wonderful way to hose the family gathering.
Thanks again for everything, Pat and Steve
PS. Your turkey dressing was delicious.

Dear Georgina

Everything was fabulous!
We can't thank you enough for your patience and flexibility; especially with the unexpected.
Everyone was talking about the great meal, and the lovely hall.
Our get together was a success thanks to you in all your thoughtfulness and planning.
Mom and dad couldn't stop talking about it.

Have a wonderful day!

Georgina and Ron, thank you so much for providing such a lovely event space for my mom's 80th Birthday. Being from out of town your assistance and knowledge of local venders was invaluable to us. The venue was perfect and the seating arrangement complemented the number of guest.
Your attention to detail and assistance the morning of the party was so appreciated.
My mom has told us her friends are still talking about what a wonderful party it was. I hope to be calling you in 10 years to book her 90th Birthday party.
Thank you again
Sue-Ellen & Amanda

The luncheon was lovely, you did an excellent service and we appreciate your hard work girls. Well worth it as usual. Mom would have been pleased. Selection was above and beyond. Mary H.

Thank you guys so much for the excellent lunch after the funeral. You are so professional and make it look easy but I know it's not. One more reason that I love small communities. Thank you again. Doug & Brenda

Thank you so much for everything you did that made our 55th anniversary so pleasant. You were so helpful with all of the details, and you so willingly gave much of your time in discussing and planning these details. The food was totally excellent, the room decor, flowers etc were simply awesome and your fine personal services throughout the day was most appreciated, including the "bridge" photography!! Many of our guests were quite impressed with your facility and had no idea that things were as nice as they are both in the hall and in your most beautiful flower gardens. Again thanks so much for everything, you have created a most pleasant memory in our lives. Carl and Gwen

Thank you for everything our wedding was beautiful and it would not have been without the use of your venue and all the support from you and your family. Our guests enjoyed themselves and could not stop raving about your facility. From the day we booked your venue to the end of our wedding, it was like we were dealing with family, you went above and beyond which is so rare to find and I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Hi Georgina

Now I know why Dad was so insistent on having their anniversary party at your place. Your patience and experience are worth more than we could have ever paid you. Please thank your whole family for all their contributions, what a wonderful way to share a business.

The hall was beautiful.

Loved the cakes, the decorating touches on the slab cakes really showed them off. I could see there was extra time and care went into the making of everything.

So much beautiful food that seemed to never end, Ron parking the quests vehicles, dishes and clean up done for us, are you sure we paid enough.

The best part, Mom and Dad were ecstatic with the whole day and it will be discussed and remembered always.

My parents have made many friend over the years but you two "take the cake". We are all better for knowing you.

Many, Many Thanks to you, Ron, Jackie, Jamie and family

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all you did to make my daughter and son-in-law's wedding day so perfect! You did an amazing job of supporting us in our vision of creating a dream come true. Your venue provided the perfect setting for a very intimate and personal wedding celebrated with our family and friends.

Our goal was to make the day memorable not only for us but for our guests as well and we were not disappointed. You went beyond and above the call of duty to add those special touches to your venue including the beautiful gardens and the preparation and serving of a delicious and tasty home cooked menu which our guests are still raving about!

We take every opportunity we have to spread the word about The Klages Mill and Gardens as one of the finest venues in the area to host that special event. You are doing an excellent job of putting the town of Chesley on the map!

Thank you and congratulations on a job well done!


Hi Georgina & Ron

Just a note to let you know how much we enjoyed being guests at your Mill on Saturday night. It was the first time being there for my husband and I and we couldn't get over what a nice venue it is. Our son took wedding pictures for a friend on the grounds about 8 years ago which I helped wit, but we were never inside the Mill. You have done a lovely job, it's very inviting and beautiful. Your decorating skills are awesome. The meal was amazing! We have never had turkey so moist and the dressing was to die for.

We will definitely be keeping your Mill in mind for future planning and letting all of our friends know how nice it is, how good the food is and what great hosts you are.

Thank you so much for your part in a lovely evening.

Debbie & Brian

We wanted to say thank you SO much for all your hard work this weekend!!

We had an amazing wedding and the food was awesome! I brought home leftovers at the end of the night and I ate them in the jacuzzi at our hotel, and they were so good! We are having hot beef sandwiches all week hahaha!

Love the newlywed Walkers

Ron & Georgina

We wanted to thank you for everything you did to help make our day 'Perfect.'

All our guests LOVED the atmosphere at the mill.

Everything was perfect.

Thank you so very much, all the best.

Matt & Vicki
