“Great place for a getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

For a recent birthday getaway, my wife and I spent two nights at the inn. A previous recommendation by a friend led us there, and we were not disappointed. The inn is a collection of buildings around a central courtyard with some additional rooms in other buildings nearby. The property is very attractive and appealing to the eye. The rooms are all different with individual themes. We stayed in the Spring Suite which was a spacious two-room area on the ground level with a private enclosed patio beside the babbling mill stream. Breakfast was delivered to the room each morning packed picnic-style in a peach basket with all necessary tableware and cutlery. The fruit was freshly prepared and the orange juice was freshly squeezed and served in an old-fashioned milk bottle carafe. The coffee was hot and tasty. Offerings varied from day to day but included warm ham biscuits, scones, cinnamon-sugar donuts and croissants. The servings were plentiful and more than we could eat. The staff of the inn were helpful in making suggestions about special places to see in the Warm Springs area. I would offer three constructive thoughts about our accommodation: (1) The small green-house window in the front of the suite looks into the sitting room but lacks an interior blind/curtain thereby limiting the privacy of the sitting room. (2) An area of obvious wear in the carpet on the step into the bathroom detracts from the otherwise pleasing aesthetics of the space. (3) The addition of a robe/towel hook in the vicinity of the shower would be a functional benefit. We truly enjoyed our stay at the Inn at Gristmill Square and will look forward to our next visit.

Thank you so much for your honest feedback and review of the inn. It is very much appreciated as we continually try to grow and improve. We need to hear from guests to know what we are doing, both right and wrong. It is with your help that we will grow and be successful. We have since added a large plant in the window facing the courtyard to assist with privacy. Additionally, a hook has been added next to the shower per your suggestion. We are still working on a carpet alternative to that room, so hopefully next time you return that issue will also be fixed. We look forward to seeing you back on a future visit. Best, Kate and John Loeffler

We have stayed at the Inn many times and just returned. This time we stayed up the road, however we enjoyed the BEST meal of our visit at the Gristmill. TERRIFIC food and even better service. Prices about 25% less than Homestead for much better food and service. Well cared for property.

We stayed in the Tower Apartment with another couple for 3 nights. It was very spacious, clean and well maintained. The breakfast each morning was delightful. We ate in the courtyard or on our private balcony. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We were driving to the Greenbrier Classic golf tournament each day so did not enjoy the restaurant except for delicious desserts one evening. We would highly recommend The Inn at Gristmill Square to anyone.

We called the Inn a few days before we were coming to Warm Springs, and luckily were able to get the last available room. I was a little concerned as it was the 'last room', however it was wonderful (and really reasonably priced). We stayed one night in the Wheat Room. Our friends had the Barley Room. They were identical, except the Barley has a little porch, which was a wonderful spot for our morning coffee and breakfast. The service could not have been better. April checked us in and could not have been more pleasant and accommodating. The Inn was the town square and each building was once a business: Hardware store, Miller, Blacksmith, etc. There are cute little seating areas around every corner. The pool is small, but quiet, attractive and adequate. The morning breakfast is really a wonderful touch. We called at 6:45 and our basket arrived by 7. Tiny quiches, a fresh made donut, fruit, juice and coffee. We had a lovely, quick breakfast on the front porch of the Barley Room. I will most definitely return to the charming hotel and will highly recommend to anyone. Don't miss the fabulous restaurant!!!

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!
