Holiday Parties at Hill Farm Inn

There’s still time to choose a date to celebrate at the inn! Chef Mariah recommends sit down dinners (up to 30, buffet or family style) cocktail parties (up to 125 with passed or stationary hors d’oeuvres) or spirited open house events, where guests can come and go as they please.

Or you can book a private pub. Bring 16 or more guests for full bar (microbrews, wines by the glass, HFI cocktails) and Chef Mariah’s small plates. Keep the planning — and evening — simple! If you’re interested in a more traditional set-up, go for cocktails and heavy hors d’oeuvres while guests enjoy the great room, game room, and our cozy bar.
