I enjoyed every moment being there. The view is breathtaking...be sure to check out the herring run across the street.

Walking onto the property, brings you right into a happy place. Water flowing, blooms everywhere, green abundant. Walked around today because we were visiting. I can't wait to go back on a Saturday, to see the working mill, and get some corn meal!!

Walking paths are easily accessible. Although the museum was closed mid week, we look forward to returning next May for another visit and to see the herring run. Will check the schedule first.

We brought kids here after it was listed as a family friendly must-see in several cape publications. We were so disappointed when shop, museum, and mill were closed on our Thursday morning visit. River was pretty, but it is located on a busy road, and parking is tough.

Plan your trip when the herring are running--if you aren't sure, watch for the seagulls swooping over!

Visited the mill and found it fascinating. You can see just how the water moves the wheel, which is geared to the gear turning the stones to crush corn kernels. I'd never seen this before! The museum upstairs includes a loom being operated, many old tools and artifacts. The grounds upstream are great for a stroll after you have had... More

Stony Brook Grist Mill and Museum in Brewster, MA is a little gem off of the beaten path on Cape Cod. It is so out of the way that it is a very pleasant ride with little or no traffic. When you get there, be sure to walk the paths around the herring run. Unless you are there in May,... More

Great thing about Cape Cod is there are so many hidden treasures. This is one for sure. Bring the kids and walk the run, it's relaxing and beautiful.

While the mill itself was closed when we visited in May, the herring run was in full swing and we had a great time watching the little fish swim up the little waterfalls while being attacked by voracious seagulls. The little mill itself is a treasure in an idyllic setting. We will make sure to return when it is open.... More
