For several years I have been playing in a VSGA Golf Tournament at The Homestead the last week of July. The Homestead quality and service has been rapidly deteriorating in the past couple of years and the cost of staying there continues to rise. A group of friends decided to try a new place this year for the tournament. The Inn at Gristmill Square was an absolutely wonderful place to stay for a great price! The rooms are availabe in several buildings and offer a variety of options. I stayed in the Cromley room which was beautiful, sunny and comfortable. There are a variety of porches to sit with friends as well as picnic tables and Adirondack chairs under the shade trees. A small but adequate pool is available as well as tennis courts. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. If golfers had to leave before breakfast service starting at 7 AM, the breakfast was brought the night before with piping hot coffee in a thermos pot. I had a wonderful massage at the Warm Springs Spa that is located in the Steel House. We talked with one of the gallery owners who recommended both of the Massage Therapists. We went into 2 very nice galleries as well as a gem shop in the town.The owner of The Gallery at Seven Oaks opened the gallery especially for several of us even though it was not her regular opening hours. It is well worth a stop! If you feel that you need central air-conditioning you can arrange a room in the Miller House. The window air-conditioners in our other rooms kept our rooms more comfortable than any of the rooms I've stayed at in The Homestead. The rates of the rooms are very reasonable. I stayed in a room by myself for less than a shared room at The Homestead. The Waterwheel Restaurant was very good. We also ate at the Country Cafe, Sam Snead's Steakhouse, Johns Steak House and ordered pizza from Cucci's one night. I would highly recommend this cute inn to anyone who is visiting the area. We have made our reservations already for next year!
