Driving down the Blue Ridge Parkway, we stopped here for breakfast. It was a great place to stretch the legs, walk around and see the buildings and exhibits on display, and also to enjoy learning about how people lived decades ago in this beautiful scenic spot. The breakfast was a treat as well. I tried eggs, bacon, and pancakes. I... More

I love stopping at Mabry Mill. On weekends they play music and give demonstrations of basket making and other crafts from a period long ago. It is a wonderful place to take photos. They have a restaurant and a small gift shop. Every time I stop there I always run into people to talk to. A lot of motorcyclists stop... More

Visited this place as a child many times with my grandparents, looks just the same as it did 20 years ago. Great day for the family to walk around and see history. Also check to see if the restaurant is open for some great comfort food.

Mabry Mill is the perfect spot to stop and get a family picture. It is a beautiful scene and nice to walk around to see how the mill used to be ran. Surrounded by woods, it is a peaceful stop just to take in some history!

Great stop on the Blue Ridge Parkway! This recreated mill and surrounding buildings are a great place to stretch your legs and get a bite to eat! The scenery is lovely. The paths are a nice short walk around the grounds and there are folks to give the history of the place. There's ice cream to be had and a... More

Mabry Mill is a worthwhile stop on the Parkway. The site is well maintained and the staff does a nice job of explaining its history. There's no charge and the restaurant has good food at reasonable prices.

We drove the Blue Ridge Parkway for about 100 miles just to see this mill. We were there twice in 24 hours and about 25 vehicles were parked each time. Besides the mill, there is a gift shop, restaurant and rest rooms. Both millers were there 'chewing the fat' and a couple other park employees doing their crafts. Stayed overnight... More

A great place to learn about local history. Volunteers in uniforms perform some task from that era and happy to share any information you may have. It rained on our visit, yet it was very pleasant experience.
