I was a bit wary after reading a couple of the previous dining experiences, but when anyway after friends told us what an enjoyable experience they had last month. We were staying nearby at the Homestead, so I cannot comment on the rooms. We were seated promptly and had excellence service from our waitress. She was attentive and helpful with... More

We have been looking forward to this trip for some time and in spite of a couple of less than bubbly actions of a lady who identified herself as one of the owners, the trip was great. Not meant to insult, the place was busy and she may have been having a rough day!. Restaurant was quaint, food was about... More

We stayed in the Tower suite which was very big, full of character and lots of features. A wonderful fire in the silo tower rooms itself, a nice veranda and pleasant views. We had a very good meal with wine chosen from the delightful and well-stocked cellar. Not too twee or pretentious and very sensible and warm hospitality.

We went for dinner to this very pleasant spot, when we were staying at the nearby Homestead Resort. It was a nice, more intimate, change of venue. The food was very good. The duck was superior to that friends had the following evening at the Homestead. I am not a connoisseur but the wine list and cellar seemed very nice.... More

Bath county is stunning, and Warm Springs is so authentic. Room reminds me of an English farmhouse, but very nice. Wifi free etc. Has a pool you can use, and one thing i liked the most about this guesthouse was the lack of other people, so it is a perfect place in my view for a quiet getaway to beautiful...

Unquestionably one of the worst dining experiences ever. Started with trying to make a reservation – it took 3 days. I called, got voicemail and was instructed to leave a message, which I did. Never got a return call. Called twice more, still got voicemail. Finally sent an email and received a reply 16 hours later. We arrived exactly at... More

We always appreciate all feedback, both good and bad. After reading this review we are so disappointed to learn of the negative experience these guests suffered. We completely agree that the ribeye ordered was completely overcooked due to some service issues. We offered some soup while the new ribeye was being prepared, but due to the fact that it is...

We arrived at Gristmill in a Thursday evening skeptical of what was to come. Accordingly, we checked in for one night, and said that we may stay for an additional night. The room was clean, but was nothing special. After freshening up, we headed to the Gristmill's restaurant, the Waterwheel. We were delighted to find that the Waterwheel had great... More

We prefer to see this situation for how it actually was, "relocated while hiking". In an ongoing effort to accommodate the needs of every guest, we relocated your belongings to the unoccupied room next door so that we could prepare your room for the incoming guest who had a reservation (this is common practice as we often have guests who...

Just when we thought John's Steakhouse in Warm Springs was a great find, we ate at this jewel and...it's even better. Like John's, it's a bit pricey, but good value. The former mill is incredibly charming with outstanding food. For wine lovers, ask to visit the wine cellar and choose your own bottle. Or ask the owner/wine expert for advice.... More

My dad and I take a father-son trip every year, and this year we drove through western Virginia. Well my car had lots of troubles we didn't make it to Inn at Gristmill Square until around 11pm. Our room was waiting for us, and although the restaurant was long closed, they very kindly made us a couple delicious appetizers. My... More
