I stayed at the Inn on Mill Creek in November of 2007, and I am really getting excited about my next stay in July. I've actually stayed at this B&B more than once and here's why: The moment I get on the road off the highway that goes to the Inn, I begin to relax from the stress and tensions of the day to day business of life. With the Inn located in the Pisgah National Forest, I find a quiet, restful and relaxing time. The rooms I've stayed in are immaculate and have a great contemporary style, not at all like some stuffy rooms I've seen in hotels and other B&Bs. The beds are comfortable for a good night’s sleep and the windows can be opened to let in the cool night breezes or to wake up to the birds singing. The decks outside are great to either sit on during the day enjoying the surroundings, reading a book or birdwatching, as well as at night looking at so many stars and listening to the tree frogs. The great room is huge and is a relaxing place to sit and visit with other guests. The walks in the forest are spectacular no matter what time of year I have visited. As far as innkeepers go, Dave and Brigette are available to answer questions regarding places to visit, a bit of the history of the area, restaurants to eat at, special events, or just to sit down and talk with. Dave takes great care to prepare a wonderful breakfast each morning and Brigette does these really great fresh squeezed juices that they call their "house blends". I highly recommend this retreat to anyone who is looking for a B&B off the beaten path, loves the time spent with a quiet forest surrounding them, but yet have the nice time in a small town like Black Mountain or the attractions of a larger town like Asheville so close at hand.
