Drove into Damascus late at night, called for a room and was pleasantly surprised. Room was spacious and quiet. We loved the back decks overlooking the waterfall. Enjoyed the laid back atmosphere, read a book and feed the ducks. Breakfast had many choices. Enjoyed it enough to extend our stay by one night.

We only stayed for one night, but it was probably the best short trip we've ever had. Drove down on July 4th and did the Creeper Trail. The room overlooked the creek/falls and was perfect--antique, but with a very nice shower and separate sink area. We decided to take a night walk. For those of you of a certain age... More

We spent one night here several days ago. We received excellent service at the restaurant and Inn. We sat on the deck overlooking the Laurel River and dam and enjoyed cocktails and an excellent dinner of the most delicious fried green tomatoes and stuffed trout. It was an unhurried enjoyable experience after completing the Virginia Creeper Trail. The complimentary continental... More

This historic mill is one block from the main street. You can walk through the entire town in less than 20 minutes. The various decks overlooking the mill pond are a nice addition and many rooms overlook the pond as well. Our room was very nicely furnished. Breakfast was great, but we didn't get to try dinner or the bar... More

We stayed just one night at the Inn to connect with our daughter who is hiking the Appalachian Trail; she changed hiking partners in Damascus. It was fantastic! From the moment we arrived, we knew we were going to be well cared for. And we did need a bit of extra attention: we arrived early after a long car ride...no... More

We stayed at the Damascus Old Mill Inn and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. It is a little large to be a typical B&B and a little small to be a hotel. But it does provide the best of both. We went for the lower priced room and wished we had spent a little more for one of the rooms... More

We recently stayed in the Damascus Old Mill Inn and loved it! We stayed in the corner king jacuzzi suite overlooking the waterfall and the room was fabulous - very comfortable, clean, and inviting in every way. The service at the Inn was friendly and impeccable. And the hot breakfast overlooking the river was delicious (egg cassarole, fresh fruits, homemade... More

After we got our waters and teas we waited and waited and waited for our beer and wine orders. Then we waited to order dinner. THEN we waited for over... More

The room was tiny and the walls so thin that we heard easily conversations next door. The double bed had a foot rail such that my 6 foot frame draped uncomfortably over the bottom of the bed all night: not a good night's sleep. The restaurant was Spartan but the food was nicely prepared and flavorful. However, when we were... More

Our waitress was friendly and attentive. The food was very good, Cobb salad and ribeye steak sandwich. Beer selection was awesome. Sitting creekside made the experience feel like we were part of nature and yet we were pamperi ourselves with great food and drink b
