We spent two nights here while biking the VA Creeper trail. Our room was very clean and quiet and the bed was very comfortable. But what made this place special was the fabulous view of the stream and the friendly and helpful staff. The manager went out of his way to make us feel at home at the Inn and... More

We've been talking about exploring what Damascus had to offer two "low key" couple, we finally made it there Valentines Weekend. We were greeted by the friendlies people, being lead by the Hotel owner, then to follow by the general manager. The staff definetely put the "Icing" on the cake for the friendlies people we've met through our travel in... More

My husband and I couldn't have chosen a better place to stay for our 6 year wedding anniversary!! While researching, I spoke with Sonya to reserve the stay, and we met with Fred, the owner, when we arrived. They were very accommodating to all of our needs during our visit, and made us feel right at home. They went above... More

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.
