Miller Place Inn permanently closes, couples scramble to find alternatives


Engaged Long Island couples who booked their spring and summer wedding receptions at the Miller Place Inn are scrambling to find alternatives.

That’s because the wedding venue suddenly closed permanently on Feb. 1.

“We found out Monday night, not even from them, but from a friend who was having a Sweet 16 there,” a soon-to-be groom told

The man spoke anonymously because he said he hasn’t received his money back from the venue and doesn’t want to jeopardize his chances of receiving it.

The man said that a Miller Place Inn representative told him to contact the venue’s lawyer. When they did, the attorney said they would get paid in two weeks, the source said.

“Their lawyer said they never financially recovered from COVID and the lady who ran most of it is sick now, apparently,” the man said.

In October 2020, Suffolk County fined the Miller Place Inn $10,000 for violations of state executive orders and $2,000 for a county sanitation code violation, relating to a Sweet 16 party held in the venue on Sept. 25, 2020.

Of the 81 guests who attended the party, a whopping 37 tested positive for COVID-19 and more than 300 other individuals were quarantined as a result.
