We can't express how floored we are by your review! We can't thank you enough for putting such time and consideration into sharing your experiences. But what's most important is that you and so many members of your family were able to enjoy each other, the locale, and the beauty and entertainment of Western North Carolina. Again, thanks so much for such a thoughtful review!

We found this place when our family wanted to get together and this area was the most central. We worked with Peggy since last fall and she had been a dream to work with! We did warn all 40 participants that it is a rustic place. On arrival we noticed that they had painters

Between reunions my high school class gets together for a birthday celebration, Mill house was chosen for this years. From the moment you pull up you feel welcome, the lake the grounds, the rooms, the staff are all on par. They allowed us to park the BBQ smoker out side of the

Not a bad place for a rustic, 1950s vibe. Rooms were very spacious and had lots of kitchen amenities, but room itself was extremely dated. Paneled walls, threadbare carpets, window AC units that drip into buckets strategically located underneath, and very plain (but

Called today (October 3rd 9:00 am) to check on available rooms for an upcoming weekend. Robert Horky answered the phone in a hasty and impatient manor. I was just asking brief and concise questions concerning rooms, but he was clearly not in the mood. ANY business operating

We're very sorry that you experienced this sort of service over the phone. For any of our guests or potential guests to feel unwanted is absolutely inexcusable. We hope that you'll consider giving us a chance to make it up to you.

How much would it be for me and my beagle April 26-April 29th
I don't know if they have a special rate for rooms that accommodate dogs. We were in a lake-view cottage, and it was $75 for the night. I believe the rates go up on May 1st. Mostly I'm just envious 'cause we lost our sweet beagle last October. If you do go to Mill House Lodge, I'm sure you'll have a great time in the Flat Rock-Hendersonville area. So much to do, and SO many great restaurants.

How much is the pet fee per nite for a small under 20 lbs. dog.
The rate depends upon which unit/suite that you stay in. Our pet fee ranges from $50 to $90. It is a one time fee for guests staying either a night up to a week.

"We stayed in the Jordan lodge on the first floor, it was the perfect spot to view the pond!"
"All are probably good."
"Room 219 is quite noisy"
"maybe get a room on the end so as not to hear others..."
"Room 306 had a private porch overlooking the lake, a separate seating area inside with kitchen, modern bath and queen bedroom. Lovely!"
$94 - $156 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
