“What a Gem!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

Neslted in the gorgeous countryside, the Inn at Gristmill Square is a truly remarkable place. Very large a spacious rooms, with classic charm, and well-picked decor that fits with the theme. It is nearly impossible not to find complete relaxation while staying in this special place. The dining room absolutely exceeds expectations. Being welcomed at the door by the innkeepers who ensure that every detail is looked after. The food, in a word, delicious. Elegantly prepared, and very reasonably priced. Take a trip down to the wine cellar to pick out a perfect pairing to your meal. Stop in at the quaint little pub for a cozy after dinner drink. Then wake up to a country breakfast basket brought right to your room. We can't wait to return. It is truly worth the trip.

Room Tip: Just relax and put yourself in the hands of the very capable innkeepers!

I just finished a 6 night stay at the Inn, and am totally refreshed. My main reason for coming here was the Jefferson Pools, less than a mile away, but there is so much more to see and do in this area. Douthat State park offers hiking and swimming, see the alpaca at the Diamond Triple C Ranch and shop in their Echo Fiber store, or just relax by the pool. The Waterwheel Restaurant was outstanding, and if you enjoy a glass of wine, go to their wine cellar and pick out your own bottle! I also thoroughly enjoyed having my breakfast brought to my room in a basket. Each day the breakfast was different, sometimes yogurt and granola with fresh fruit along with a scone, and other times, a warm breakfast sandwich, and a bowl of cut up fruit. It was always great. If you don't want to eat breakfast in your room, there are plenty of places to sit outside and enjoy the meal.
I hope to come back again soon with my husband. Thanks John and Kate for an extremely relaxing vacation.

We recently stayed for 2 nights at the Inn. I can't say enough nice things about it. We ate at the restaurant both nights (make reservations ahead of time a must). It was great to walk across the courtyard to the restaurant...no driving.....and WONDERFUL food. We also enjoyed the breakfast that included a nice variety of food. It's also nice/convenient to call when you want them to deliver it to your room. There are lots of things to do in the area. We went to the Douthat State Park nearby for a swim. There are tons of hiking trails and also the Homestead and Jefferson Pools. It is quite a beautiful area to explore. I also enjoy the pool after touring the area. We will definitely be back again. ENJOY!

We stayed in the Wheat Room for one night as we had a wedding to attend at the Old Dairy Barn. The hotel room was really cold and there was a spot of blood on the white bed spread which kind of grossed me out. For the most part we really liked it. The hotel staff was all very friendly and they brought us coffee, orange juice, and scones to our room in the morning. This was a very nice touch. The grounds are definitely beautiful and we really liked the small pub inside of the restaurant. It was very well decorated and the actual bar was a really cool sliver from a tree trunk.
We arrived at around 3:30 in the afternoon and called to the front desk to ask if there was anywhere on the grounds where we could get some coffee as we were wiped out from driving. They said no, the hotel restaurant wasn't open yet, and we would have to do down the road to a café. This was fine, but it would be great if they put a keurig or something in the office for guests when they arrive. Overall it was a really nice stay and I would definitely stay here again!

My wife and I just spent our 10th wedding anniversary at the Inn at Grist Mill and we could not
have picked a better place! We had never stayed at a bed & breakfast before and were a little
skeptic, but let me tell you this place is a little slice of Heaven! The owners and staff go out of
their way to make sure your every need is met and make you feel like family the entire stay. We
stayed in the "Loft" room which is in the top of the office. This room is the only room in this space so you have total privacy in the evenings. There are a flight of steps to get to the room but if you have no issues with that then we totally recommend it. The food was some of the best we've ever had and people were coming from the Homestead to eat here! My wife has a gluten
allergy and they made sure her breakfast and dinner was especially prepared. The spa is top
notch as well so be sure to get your special someone a treatment! We are in our 40's and still
like to have a good time so we were a little worried about being out of place but we would go
back in a minute and plan to do so. Beautiful place with wonderful people and all your needs
met right there...you can't ask for much more then that! Enjoy your stay!!!!!!

Room Tip: The "Loft Room" is a winner. Have steps to climb but well worth it!

Our two visits to the Inn at Gristmill Square have been perfect. Charming, romantic, quiet, full of character. Photos of rooms on website do not do them justice. The Inn offers an escape to tranquility in the mountains with all the desired perks (restaurant, spa). The restaurant is excellent-better food than the nearby HOmestead resort and breakfast delivered to the room caps off the stay!

I stumbled upon this wonderful inn. I am not a big fan of B&B inns. I usually stay at name brand hotels. My party of four were on a dual sport motorcycle trip which involved riding off pavement motorcycles on the dirt backroads and trails of VA. We emerged from the woods in bad weather and this inn was the only place within 20 miles that came up when we looked for lodging on our GPS. Even in our disheveled state, the innkeeper welcomed us and gave us great accommodations in this fantasticly historical gristmill. While we did not eat at the associated restaurant, everyone we talked with who did eat there said it was great. In the morning, the innkeepers delivered a fantastic continental breakfast to our rooms. I will definately bring my wife back to this place for a romantic weekend in the near future. This place has charm and character....and a great staff.
