Back in January, my husband and I planned a last min trip to Mill Creek for a weekend getaway. What a wonderful experience. We live in the northern VA/DC area and the ride to the mountains was absolutely beautiful. We went from Jan 30-Feb 2, 2013. The timing could not have been anymore perfect it was snowing throughout our stay. When we got to our destination, at first we were a bit concerned as when you first turn onto Milroy rd there's homes and trailers. My husband and I were confused and were saying you got to be kidding (it looked nothing like the pictures), but as you drive about a quarter mile you then drive into the woods and see the beautiful cabin homes. To add to that it was snowing so the property was absolutely breath taking. We finally get to our Cabin #2 and we we're so thrilled. The pictures on the website does not do it justice what so ever. If you are looking for quaint and rustic, well you found it here. From the Jacuzzi out from your front door to the beautiful slate wood burning fireplace. There is no wrong with this place. The property even offers chopped wood, however there is an honor code to tip accordingly for the prep wood. Which suggest $5-$7 which is still a good offer. The staff is very attentive. My husband and I have a gas fireplace so the hubby had trouble at first lighting up the fireplace lol. So we called the property manager and they sent Mike on over to help. Thanks Mike. The staffs are wonderful and helpful and down to earth people. The location is perfect. Though you feel your miles and miles away from the nearest store, but for your convenience there’s Wal-mart, restaurants and other shopping less than 10 mins away. My husband and I plan on going back either towards the end of the year or beginning of next year. We just love what the cabin has to offer and it makes it that more romantic when it’s snowing. We played in the snow and then hopped in the hot tub afterwards. Who does that lol. Anyways. Our stay was relaxing and wonderful and would definitely recommend going with your significant other and or make it a couples trip especially during the winter months. Next time we go we will go to the nearest ski resort which I believe is less than 30 mins. I highly recommend staying here. If you decide to go let me know your thoughts.
