The principals of Crispin Hill are Heather Tompkins and Chelsey Madia. Heather is our Executive Chef and a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY. Chelsey is our Bridal Coordinator and a graduate of NAU, with a Business Degree and an emphasis on Hotel and Restaurant Management. Heather and Chelsey’s dream was to build and operate a premiere Event Center in the heart of the Finger Lakes Wine Country. In 2015, they found the property of their dreams and completed the purchase of the Crispin Hill Farm. The Crispin Hill nine-acre venue is private and somewhat secluded but is easy to reach via Route 54A, just three miles outside the quaint village of Penn Yan. Crispin Hill’s wedding event venue is nestled on a hillside and offers a picturesque view of Keuka Lake, the gem of the Finger Lakes. Several hotels are located near Crispin Hill for the convenience of your guests.
Two wonderful structures make Crispin Hill uniquely desirable for those who seek a memorable wedding event. The Crispin Hill Farm House was originally built over a century ago, but recently has been completely remodeled and updated with loving attention to detail. It features a modern chef’s kitchen and several decks that overlook pristine Keuka Lake, providing a nearly 180-degree view. The Farm House can sleep up to 14 persons and is available for smaller, more intimate events such as bridal showers, rehearsal parties or private parties up to 40 guests. The master suite offers a gorgeous view of the lake, a large deck, and a marble bathroom with both a claw foot tub and a shower. This suite makes an outstanding bridal suite with a beautiful backdrop for photos.
At the heart of our event center is Crispin Barn. The huge Barn, along with the companion tent within a few steps of the barn doors, can accommodate up to 170 guests comfortably. The view from both within and without the Barn is spectacular. An illuminated path winds from the Barn to a ceremony site where vows can be exchanged while overlooking beautiful Keuka Lake.
Crispin Hill offers a setting with limitless possibilities for you to create a truly unique and memorable wedding . . . . . . the wedding of your dreams. We are pleased to work with you in a very personal manner to make that dream come true. To begin the preparations for your wedding day, please contact Chelsey Madia at 315.577.2797.
