The area was beautiful to walk around and take photos. We saw some wild deer and met some great folks, out taking pics and exploring as we were.

A must see on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Its very easy to see why its the most photographed spot on the parkway. If you get a chance to go when the restaurant and shops are open, its a must. The demonstrations are very interesting and the food is fabulous. The pancakes and ice cream are must haves :)

Tells a story of earlier days. Have visited twice in past year, with definite improvements in between. The exhibit is interesting. Food in the gift shop restaurant is adequate, and the gift shop itself is typical tourist trap, with very friendly staff. Worth a stop, but not a destination unto it's own.

This is one of my favorite stops along the Blue Ridge parkway. There are always 2 to 6 ducks swimming in the pond in front of the mill. During peak tourist season the mill is "moving" - although they no longer actually grind any grain. There is a short winding trail taking you to other things to see, such as... More

30 year favorite of ours. Going back in May for a motorcycle M & G. LOVE the pancakes in the restaurant. You can buy the stone ground grains there also.

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.
