We stayed at the Inn at Gristmill Square as part of a Christmastime trip, the focus of which was: RELAXATION. The Inn at Gristmill Square was perfect for serving this purpose. We stayed in the Bromley room which was large and well-appointed, with a balcony, fireplace, and high ceilings (the pictures on their website seem to accurately portray the rooms). The real charm of this inn lies in the small, personal touches made by the wonderful staff to ensure their guests' comfort and satisfaction. We loved the breakfast, which was delivered to our room in an adorable basket each morning when we called to ask for it, and included freshly brewed coffee, orange juice, bottles of water, and croissants with tiny jars of jam. The cleaning staff also made sure to bring in new firewood every day and to position the logs so that all we had to do was light it. The restaurant at the hotel is also wonderful, with great food and a decent selection of wines (it can get a bit pricey though, so watch out for that). In the restaurant area, there is a small corner bar that we enjoyed very much. The part-bartender/part-inkeeper Ginger is funny and friendly and we liked talking with the locals about the area. This inn is close to the Jefferson Pools, which are a MUST-SEE if you are in this area....an amazing experience that will leave you feeling like you just spent the last hour in a dream. The Homewood is overrated and not worth its prices, but the small "Main Street" area next to it has some cute restaurants and shops. We also spent two days skiing at Snowshoe Mountain in West Virgina - it was about an hour and half long drive (each way) from Warm Springs, but we didn't mind at all because it really was such stunning scenery along the way. All in all, this is a nice, clean, friendly inn with a personal touch. I would recommend it highly to couples looking to just get away and relax / spend some romantic time together but not to those who want a vibrant nightlife or lots and lots of activities nearby, as this it's located in a fairly sleepy (though gorgeous!) area. We certainly had a great time!
