“Wonderful, lovely and special!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

This a wonderful inn with a great staff and an absolutely gorgeous location in Warm Springs. I stayed in the Miller's House in the Barley Room and I'm already wanting to go back. The room is perfectly appointed with thoughtful touches, like cookies waiting for you when you arrive, plenty of lights, and a huge bed. The Barley Room even has its own private front porch, perfect for sitting with a nice drink in the early mornings, just listening to the birds, and the sounds of the creek rushing over the rocks. It is so peaceful. The rooms are large, the bathroom in the Barley Room was huge, bigger than my bedroom at home. The entire inn is so full of old fashioned hospitality and charm and it's all genuine. The staff was super friendly, the grounds are immaculate. It's like you are stepping back in time to a perfectly preserved mountain village. I love this place. All I want to do is go back, sit on the porch with coffee and a nice cocktail and read all day long. The Inn at Gristmill Square just welcomes you and invites you in, letting you take your time and enjoy a taste of the slow, simple, good life. Thank you for an incredible visit! One night was not enough! I must go when I'm not on a business trip!

Room Tip: Request the Barley Room for your very own private front porch, with access from your bedroom.

Great Inn, great location, great staff. Just spent a wonderful getaway at The Inn at Gristmill Square. We stayed in the Loft room which is above the office. We thought it might be a bit noisy but that ended up not being true. The office closes at 5 and opens at 8. You have the whole building to yourself. No neighbors, very quiet and private. It also has a nice deck overlooking the woods in the back. Again, very private. Breakfast was delivered to our room (picnic basket with yogurt and fruit, chocolate croissants, ham biscuits, coffee) All delicious and plentiful. We took our basket to the Dan Ingells Overlook and enjoyed a beautiful sunrise over the mountains. We will be back.

Room Tip: I would definitely stay in the Loft room again.

Just returned from the most delightful getaway to The Inn at Gristmill Square. What a sweet B&B! Filled with charm without being contrived. Our room was PERFECT for us! The attention to detail and level of guest care was incredible. The restaurant - oh my goodness - simply not enough superlative adjectives to describe it properly. Already looking forward to my next trip. Thanks so much for making us feel special! On our short list of all-time favorite places!

Room Tip: All the rooms have their own individual charm. I believe we had the best room there for us. It had...

We visited the Inn for my birthday weekend and stayed in the Bromley Room. With it's fireplace, king sized bed and little balcony we felt right at home! Our room was spacious and so was the bathroom. I always love when a robe is provided and this one was really comfy! The fireplace was all set to go and we were excited to have a cozy fire both evenings of our stay! We were disappointed that we couldn't play the bean bag toss game outside but enjoyed relaxing on the chairs near the spring. The breakfasts that were provided and brought to our room both days were perfect and the freshly squeezed orange juice was a nice treat! We usually stay at The Homestead when we visit Bath County but we chose this Inn this year instead. We were not disappointed and actually plan to return for another visit next spring!!

We were booked in to the Inn for one night, we had a lovely meal (at the bar - we hadn't thought we would need to book!) and a great night sleep, unfortunately...or perhaps fortunately as it turned out, we couldn't travel to our next location due to the government shutdown.

We enquired about staying another night, all the staff we encountered went out of their way to help us, we booked to eat in the restaurant and had a superb meal with a fantastic bottle of wine, all at a very reasonable price.

We stayed in the silo for our second night, it is a very memorable, unique and comfortable room, the breakfasts are fantastic (breakfast in bed) you simply call when you want it, one of the staff brings a range of breakfast foods along in a hamper - they even catered for our 'unusual' English taste for tea (with milk).

I would highly recommend staying in this fantastic place set in an idyllic location, nestled in the Virginian mountains.

Drove up the mountain with approximately 8 plus inches of snow on the ground. Reception was about as easy as possible. We were also able to move our dinner reservation forward after a couple drinks at the cozy bar. Everything from the beets to the pasta and trout was delicious and extremely well done. Dinner service was sharp and efficient without being overbearing. We were able to get a couple Samuel Smiths for 'dessert' by the fire in our room. We had a beautiful view of the snow-covered road out front. The bedding made for a very comfortable night's sleep. I must admit that I had no idea that breakfast would be served in our room. Some of the best biscuits and desperately needed coffee to brace us for the trip down the mountain. The breakfast service (Julie?) was super friendly as well. Owners loaned us a broom to free the car from 10 inches of snow and we were on our way. Would recommend this inn to anyone. No questions. No issues.

I booked the Loft room at Gristmill Square for my boyfriend's birthday weekend. We visited the Jefferson Pools (definitely recommend) then came to check in at the B&B. The room was clean and well maintained. We had a cute little bathroom and a patio off the room too. I'm super picky about hotel cleanliness and I had ZERO complaints.

The staff are SO friendly, when we left to explore we asked the woman at the desk if there was somewhere nearby we could get coffee. She misunderstood at first that we were just asking for directions and offered to jump up and go make us some coffee! So nice and welcoming.

We had a few drinks at the pub before having dinner at Waterwheel. The food was great, and the service was fabulous. We split a bottle of wine with dinner and hung out for awhile after we were done eating. We never felt rushed or hurried, the staff were really great.

In the morning we got our breakfast delivered to the room (it's included in the price of your stay). It was a cute basket of coffee, juice, pastries (berry scones and some spinach and cheese puff pastries which were amazing) and fruit.

I originally found Gristmill online because I was looking to make a reservation at Homestead before I realized how insanely expensive that place is. Gristmill was only $120/night and included breakfast. It was also quieter, more welcoming, and so lovely. We went to check out Homestead and it was insanely busy and just did not look relaxing at all.

The area has a lot to offer, we went hiking in GW national park on Sunday and had a great time. There's also a few bars/taverns near Homestead that we grabbed a drink at during the day. If you come in the summer there's a ton more to do than in February.

We both agreed we would DEFINITELY come back here.
