We stayed at the Millside cabin in May of 2015 and had the most memorable stay in Gatlinburg we ever had, and we just got back from another stay this past May! I can't say enough about the cabin, the beautiful setting and the rich history that resides in the property itself, it's a unique experience that gives you a... More

A must see! This fabulous, unique property appears to be miles from civilization; however, it's about a mile from the Parkway in Gatlinburg and borders the National Park.The mill is full of functioning original weaving simple machines and tools. They offer a venue for weddings, and there are creek-side and mountain-side cabins for nightly/weekly rental. They also sell hand-made mountain... More

The people are very nice and a wealth of historical knowledge since they have been in the area for decades. The setting is spectacular. It is a must visit location at the end of the motor tour or a stay at one of the cabins would be an ideal location for hiking.

Stayed for two nights in the small cabin - Millside. The cabin is very clean and very warm (it was rather cool out when we visited). There were 4 adults - so two of us took the really comfortable king size bed and the other two took the pull out couch. All of us slept rather well. It is just... More

Hmm...almost hate to write a good review. Its such a great place, but with only 2 cabins, if it get's popular, I may not be able to get in next time! But, it deserves a good review, so it will get one. Arrival- got there after dark. On entering, there were home-baked treats on the dining room table (zucchini bread,... More

Stayed in the Smaller Cabin - Millside for four nights on a solo fishing trip. Huge space, perfect for one guy who has too much gear. Appreciated cable and wifi. Baked items were excellent, bed was very comfortable, kitchen and bath more than adequate. Wonderfully quiet at night but the isolated location can also feel risky when getting back late... More

We were married there in sept of 2012. When we went to look at the property, we were complete blown away by how perfect it was!! So much more scenic than the state park. The owner showed us around explaining the history and how long it was in her family. Getting married by the water, the photography opportunities were endless,... More

Excellent accomodations. Close enough to town to be convenient, yet far enough away that you're well removed from the mess that is Gatlinburg. Very easy access to the national park. I had the bigger of the two cabins. It was more like a cottage than a cabin. Two bedrooms, 1.5 baths, full well-stocked kitchen, great room with fireplace and large... More

What a wonderful surprise! This studio cabin was big enough to suit our family of three but could easily handle more, if needed. The location was pretty and parking was good. Ely's Mill Store is directly across the road... Although not open when we visited, we enjoy stopping in on our visits. The owner was so welcoming and warm. She... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a historic old Mill within the city of Gatlinburg that has a retail shop and two overnight rentals. Millside cabin rents for $75/nite and Creekside is $125/nite. No smoking/no pets. We also are a wedding site and do a tours of the mill as time and personnel allow. Rich in natural beauty, tucked up against the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, with the Roaring Fork Creek running right through the middle of our land it is one of the last of the "Old Gatlinburg" sites around. Feels like you are a world away although downtown is just a mile down the road. ... more   less
