A much photographed corn mill with working waterwheel and scenic pond. Seasonally they have exhibits of blacksmithing, weaving, and musical entertainment. There is an adjacent restaurant that can have long waits during summer weekends, otherwise it is fine.

Beautiful little stop on the Blue Ridge Pkwy. The restaurant was closed while we were there but I hear the pancakes are delicious! Even so, it was a great place to stop and stretch our legs and take a great picture.

We thoroughly enjoyed walking the paths around the mill and looking at all the outdoor exhibits. However, since I was traveling with a child, it would have been nice to have had SOME kind of bathroom facility left open.

Came by on a Monday in November and even though the restaurant and mill were closed for the season it was nice to walk around and see the Mill and other buildings. There are plenty of signs around to help you get a good idea of the history of the place. Looked very nice with the fall foliage. Also more... More

Mabry Mill shows you what it was like many years ago with the saw mill, black smith shop, the cider churning in the fall the quilt making, the water mill, and you can buy grits and corn meal that was made there. Great for the whole family.

Because the mill is reflected from the water collection stream,you have probably seen many photos of this attraction. There is a self guided tour to see the mill and also a cabin... More

I ordered the Chicken Pot Pie and it was by far the worst thing I have ever had in a restaurant. It was way too salty, only had two pieces of Chicken about the size of peas in it, the sauce tasted like it was thickened with flour not cream and the topping was simply a piece of puff pastry... More
