Promont House is really special and having the tea there was just wonderful. The volunteers who prepared, served, and gave us a tour, made the event so nice. The foods served at the tea were so delicious. Celebrating the 80th year of the Williamsburg Garden Club at Promont House was a great day of new memories while learning about the past. Thank you to all who made this possible. Shirley Ogden Williamsburg Garden Club

Friends and I recently enjoyed tea and a tour at Promont. The ginger peach tea was very good and the food was delicious. Mary Ann and the rest of the staff was very friendly and their service was excellent. The house itself is just beautiful and a wonderful place to spend an afternoon! We all look forward to visiting again.

The Sunrise Landing Garden Club enjoyed their recent elegantly served tea and tour of the Promont and we would rate EVERYTHING about our visit with highest marks. The lovely china, silver and crystal invited us to linger under a glistened chandelier while marveling at all the detailed beauty of the dining room. The serving of delicate tea sandwiches with the fine touch of a cluster of mint, rosemary and tea roses, tender and warm scones with clotted cream, fruit and sweets served with delicious hot peach tea, served in delicate vintage cups, made our luncheon a one-of-a-kind experience. Mary Ann, Tea Coordinator, was personable and helpful from the first contact to the last goodbye seeing that every detail was to our liking. Her gracious manner added so much to the atmosphere and ... (more)

If there was an 'excellent plus' rating, I would give it to Mary Ann and the wonderful team at the Promont House Museum. Their hospitality and generosity made my niece's Bridal Shower a lovely and memorable event for our family and guests! We thoroughly enjoyed the venue, the staff, and - of course - the wonderful menu they created for us. Our teacups were kept filled with aromatic ginger peach tea. They were even able to accommodate last-minute food allergy issues! (When you come, be sure to order the asparagus hors d'oeuvre. Yum!) The location is simply beautiful. The home is situated on top of a hill with panoramic views of the surrounding region. On the interior, stately rooms resonate with historical beauty - and we were given a tour of all three floors! From the set-up of the rooms right through to the final clean-up and exit, the Promont House Museum team made the event a joy for all who attended. Thanks again! We will be back!

I hosted my daughters Bridal High Tea on Sat. 4/23/16. Itwas absolutely beautiful. We had 20 in attendance. We started in the formal dining room to toast the bride. Fresh flowers were placed on the table with a sterling silver punch bowl for us to use. We then went into the parlor where the tables were beautifully decorated with vintage linens, and china. Again the centerpieces were of fresh flowers. The bride and her bridesmaids were placed at a table in the front of the room. The other tables were placed so to have plenty of room to walk around and visit. The chairs had bows or chair covers on them. The food was fabulous! Mary Ann gave me lots of things to pick from when we were in the planning stages. First there was fruit , then finger sandwiches, scones with cream (they were wonder... (more)

Variety, Artistry, Service, Food: All Excellent The women in my Washington Township/Centerville neighborhood recently chose to celebrate spring by driving to Milford's Promont House for our every-other-month luncheon get-together. The experience was certainly worth the trip! This lovely house is a Victorian restored and maintained by a dedicated group of volunteers. The docent-led and included tour was conducted by a lady who was knowledgeable, humorous, and obviously dedicated to the longevity of this local treasure. The tea itself was a total delight. Freshly brewed tea is served, of course, and the courses are numerous with generous portions served. I especially enjoyed the broccoli quiche, cucumber sandwiches, fresh-baked fruit scones (clotted cream and tasty marmalade!), and ev... (more)

My neighbors and I just visited Promont House Museum of Milford, OH for a tea and house tour. We enjoyed every aspect of the event and it was well worth the cost! First the house: the bones of the house and the furnishings have been well preserved and the tour leader was a wealth of knowledge about the history of the house, it's past and current furnishings, and the prior residents and the lifestyles of those inhabitants. Such enlightment! Secondly, the tea service was impeccable and each food item was fresh and very tasty with ample amounts provided. If asked to name my favorite selections, I would say the quiche, scone, and white chocolate truffle! Finally, the staff, all volunteers, was most accommodating, polite, and helpful. Visit, you'll be pleased.

I recently hosted my sister's bridal shower at The Promont House Museum. Everyone had such a wonderful time. We started out with mimosas in the formal dining room of the house. We provided the mimosas but they provided the table, set up beautifully with ice bucket, champagne glasses, flowers, and cloth napkins. Then we moved on to tea. The Ashby's of London Ginger Peach tea was delicious and everyone had several cups. The food was also delicious, we especially enjoyed the Chicken Salad on cinnamon swirl bread, scones, and desserts. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I was full after our meal. The atmosphere was that of a formal tea- the house is beautiful, the table settings perfect. We felt like we had stepped back in time! Mary Ann, Sue, and the other staff were so very nice and swe... (more)

This is a wonderful place for tea! The house is beautifully decorated and after a scrumptious and filling tea, you receive a guided tour and narrative tour of the mansion. The food is prepared specially by Mary Ann and everything was delicious! Mary Ann and the other ladies go out of their way to ensure that each guest feels welcome and has an enjoyable afternoon of tea! The Promont House is truly a jewel in this area offering so much to the history of the area as well as our State. I've already made reservations for the Christmas Tea! I advise anyone reading this to book your reservation and enjoy!

We had a relaxing and enjoyable afternoon having tea and a tour of Promont House Museum. The Ginger Peach tea was delicious and the various sandwiches (chicken salad on cinnamon swirl bread, grilled pineapple with cheddar filling and bacon topping, cucumber tomato basil on white bread), scones (cranberry orange white chocolate, strawberry bread with Devon cream), sweets (mini brownie, lemon curd tarts, Mexican cookie), and fruit kabob were equally delicious. The hosts were friendly and we enjoyed learning about the history of Promont House. I highly recommend this tea event. We may come back for the Christmas holiday season to enjoy another tea and the decorated house.

Tables covered with lovely embroidered linens, beautiful crystal, silver and china place settings awaited our arrival for an afternoon tea luncheon in late January. Ashby's of London Christmas Spice Tea was a served throughout our visit. Our meal featured a creamy tomato basil bisque, a salad of the freshest greens topped with grilled pineapple fans, blueberries and sliced avocado and quiche. A variety of delectable mini desserts completed the meal. Our hosts truly made us feel welcome during our tea luncheon and the fascinating tour of the Promont House.

Our club came in early January to enjoy a luncheon and tour. The House was still decorated beautifully for Christmas. Mary Ann was responsible for a delicious luncheon highlighted by a wonderful tomato bisque soup. We had Ashby's Christmas Spice tea in always full tea cups. After we ate, we took an informative tour of the House with Sue who able to not only tell us the history of the House and the people who had lived there, but made us see in our mind's eyes the Victorian era in which the House was built.

We enjoyed a formal, yet relaxed, atmosphere in the dining room, for our tea/luncheon. Mary Ann and Sue were very knowledgeable and shared a lot about the furniture and dinnerware we were using. They kept our tea cups full, and the smell of the Christmas Spice tea, by Ashby's, needed no sweetening!! My favorite of the desserts was the coconut macaroons, so delicate.

I was having a small wedding of 30 guests, and wanted something special and very elegant, and chose the Promont House, and couldn't be more pleased with the entire experience. They have several packages available for weddings, and the planner I worked with was amazing and greatly reduced my anxiety and helped me plan a superb sit down dinner for my guests after we were married outside at the gazebo. She even helped us decorate, and coordinated with the caterer and bakery! If you are looking for a venue that is very special, unique and absolutely beautiful, you can't go wrong! You can even have a dance outside, if you so choose! Our fall wedding was absolutely stunning! Thank you to everyone who made this such a special day for us!

Just had a beautiful tea with 11 friends at Promont. The food was all homemade and delicious. The ladies serving (all volunteers to the museum) were so friendly and knowledgable. The tour of the house by the docent was so interesting and the house was so beautiful with all its original authenticity. We are anxious to be going back at Christmas to see the Victorian decorations. Thank you ladies for a really special day out!

The baby shower that I hosted this past weekend at the Promont House was an absolute success! In the early planning stages, I knew that Mary Ann had things completely under control and she was such a pleasure to work with. On the day of the event, every detail was perfect- the food, the setting, the tea and the staff. It was such a unique experience for everyone and best part is that it was stress-free for me! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon. I would definitely recommend this venue for your next event a thousand times over!

Our bridal tea at The Promont House this Sunday was an excellent experience. The setting was perfect and everything, down to the napkins, was delightfully and beautifully done. The food was delicious and the staff was attentive, but respectfully inconspicuous, as we focused on the bride's event. It was a marvelous afternoon as they helped us create the perfect bridal shower!

What an enjoyable, relaxing, day spent having tea at the Promont House yesterday. Being with friends in such a classic, beautifully decorated home where history surrounded you made the Christmas season very special. Can't think of one thing to complain about and will certainly recommend this experience to others.

What a lovely time I had this afternoon with the Oakley Garden Club! Not only was the food excellent, the Christmas spice tea was delightful. The formal Victorian setting offered a relaxing escape to another time. Our service was friendly, welcoming and left me feeling pampered. In addition to the tea service and delightful company, the guided tour of this historic home was informative and unique. A five-star experience I am looking forward to repeating with another group of friends soon!

I had a fabulous time at our tea this afternoon. I even purchased the Ashby Christmas tea to serve to guests this holiday season! The Christmas decorations add so much charm to the already warm and inviting home and the historic artifacts in the home were fantastic. The egg quiche was delicious and I also loved the mango and white chocolate scones, the dessert was also great! I can't wait to bring a group to experience this magnificent home. Thank you for the elegant and courteous service!

I recently held a bridal tea for my future daughter-in-law and I cant say enough positive things about having an event at the Promont Museum. From the Tea Coordinator, Mary Ann, who helped us choose the menu to fit our tastes, to all of the volunteers that waited on us that day, it just couldnt have gone any smoother. The Victorian setting at the museum is just gorgeous and they supply all of linen,china, glasses and even fresh flower centerpieces. It made my job so easy in that I just showed up with our guests and could really relax and enjoy the day. I looked forward to using this venue for other events such as a special birthday, girls day with my friends or possibly those baby showers we hope to celebrate in the future.
