I have stayed here twice with my husband for weekend trips to ride the Virginia Creeper Trail. Dinner is always excellent and the staff is friendly. Would definitely stay here again. The balcony overlooking the waterfall was awesome!

This is a wonderful inn! We had a room on the third floor overlooking the waterfall and the river....the view was sensational! The service and the staff were charming and professional and had loads of hospitality! It was my birthday celebration and we arrived to roses in the room!

We met up with friends for a weekend in Damascus, VA Oct. 10-12 and stayed at the Damascus Old Mill Inn. We had stayed there a couple of years ago and thought the lodging, the food, and the service were tops so we knew we wanted to go back again. This year's experience was even better than that first visit.... More

We had a great long weekend in Damascus, VA this past weekend. The accomodations, food and service at the Old Mill Inn were fantastic. The menu was revamped from the last visit we made 2 years ago. The food was great then and even better now. The staff takes great pride in their menu and their property. We rode bikes... More

After reading many reviews of the Old Mill Inn here on TripAdvisor, we decided to splurge and rent a 3rd floor room with balcony overlooking Laurel Creek and the old mill dam. I've blogged about it on Ken Loyd's Eclectic Blog with a load of pictures. The inn's website is very informative, so you know what you're getting. Though we... More

The Old Mill is a great place to stay for riding the Creeper trail. We took a shuttle up from the Blue Blaze bike shop, which is a block away, so when you finish, you are "home." They let us check in early, making it possible to do the Whitetop to Damascus section that afternoon (call ahead and reserve a... More

Beautifully restored mill. Guest rooms have attention to detail. Sun-Thursday the place is quiet, but the weekends offer live music and more guests. The staff is laid back and they really try to make you feel at home. If you arrive on Monday or Tuesday....expect to drive to Abingdon for dinner.

Front desk clerk welcoming and gave us key to "personal entrances" which came with our room overlooking the water. Two days later when husband went to take luggage to car the key opened none of the doors except one which was on the second floor. After waiting for someone to check us out, we were told the key did work... More

On our fly/drive thru the Appalation Mountains stopped the night at the Damascus Old Mill Inn, situated on the Laurel river in the heart of the mountains. The hotel is an old mill still with the feel of history beside the mill pond. This was Labor day weekend and we thought it would be busy but in fact was quiet,... More

We were more than pleased to find this terrific Old Mill Inn on the Appalachian Trail. Large, period rooms, great on-site restaurant, friendly service attending to every detail. Complete with a hot Continental Breakfast prepared by Fred, the owner, reminiscent of our stays at much smaller B&Bs. Sounds of the water and ducks are a big part of the visit.... More
