“"Will not disappoint"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

My wife and I just spent our 10th wedding anniversary at the Inn at Grist Mill and we could not
have picked a better place! We had never stayed at a bed & breakfast before and were a little
skeptic, but let me tell you this place is a little slice of Heaven! The owners and staff go out of
their way to make sure your every need is met and make you feel like family the entire stay. We
stayed in the "Loft" room which is in the top of the office. This room is the only room in this space so you have total privacy in the evenings. There are a flight of steps to get to the room but if you have no issues with that then we totally recommend it. The food was some of the best we've ever had and people were coming from the Homestead to eat here! My wife has a gluten
allergy and they made sure her breakfast and dinner was especially prepared. The spa is top
notch as well so be sure to get your special someone a treatment! We are in our 40's and still
like to have a good time so we were a little worried about being out of place but we would go
back in a minute and plan to do so. Beautiful place with wonderful people and all your needs
met right there...you can't ask for much more then that! Enjoy your stay!!!!!!

Room Tip: The "Loft Room" is a winner. Have steps to climb but well worth it!

Our two visits to the Inn at Gristmill Square have been perfect. Charming, romantic, quiet, full of character. Photos of rooms on website do not do them justice. The Inn offers an escape to tranquility in the mountains with all the desired perks (restaurant, spa). The restaurant is excellent-better food than the nearby HOmestead resort and breakfast delivered to the room caps off the stay!

I stumbled upon this wonderful inn. I am not a big fan of B&B inns. I usually stay at name brand hotels. My party of four were on a dual sport motorcycle trip which involved riding off pavement motorcycles on the dirt backroads and trails of VA. We emerged from the woods in bad weather and this inn was the only place within 20 miles that came up when we looked for lodging on our GPS. Even in our disheveled state, the innkeeper welcomed us and gave us great accommodations in this fantasticly historical gristmill. While we did not eat at the associated restaurant, everyone we talked with who did eat there said it was great. In the morning, the innkeepers delivered a fantastic continental breakfast to our rooms. I will definately bring my wife back to this place for a romantic weekend in the near future. This place has charm and character....and a great staff.

We had the Barley room with a porch and dining room sized bathroom!
The accommodations are luxurious, the setting is relaxing, the staff are marvelous!!
I suppose there could be noise from the street that runs by the Barley room on the porch side but the bed is so comfortable you'll sleep so well you won't notice.
A continental breakfast is delivered to your room when you call - the morning we were there they had little sweet rolls with bacon baked into them and pints of yogurt w/fresh blueberries and granola, a carafe of oj and a thermos of coffee...another thermos of coffee was cheerfully delivered when I called for more.

Great place for a weekend gateway. The rooms re spacious ,clean and romantic. You have the Jefferson pools, natural warmsprings only a mile away. Prices are about normal . They will bring a continental breakfast to your room each morning. Adjacent to the rooms is the Waterwheel restaurant, the food is excellent, though little high priced, but worth it for a special weekend. Wine cellar where you may choose your wine if you wish. Enjoyed my weekend very much.

Room Tip: We stayed at the Steele house in quilt room. Beautiful room

I just returned from a three-night stay at Gristmill Square. It was truly lovely. We stayed in The Tower which had two bathrooms (two toilets, two sinks, one with tub/shower). The kitchen was adequate with a small sink, dorm-size frig and entrance to a nice deck. The living room was perfect for us; we were 4 women from as close as Lexington, VA and as far away as Charleston, SC. There was a nice fireplace which was supplied daily with fire-starting supplies and firewood. There was a large screen TV but we didn't get around to turning it on. One surprising feature is the heated tile floor in the living room. The restaurant ambiance is very nice with candles, tablecloths, no electronics allowed and good food. There's a small bar area which we meant to use but never got around to. My favorite part was that you could have your breakfast delivered. Our breakfast was a large portion of vanilla yogurt with cereal and blueberries, a sweet pastry and a savory pastry, freshly-squeezed OJ, coffee and/or tea all delivered in a basket. There were also chocolate chip cookies for us in our 'rooms' when we arrived. We had 4" of snow and the staff obligingly came out and swept the snow off my car (I live in SC and have NO snow equipment). Views were pleasing from all our windows.

Ladies, thank you for such a nice review. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay in the Tower. It really seemed like the perfect room for you. We hope that if you plan another getaway you will opt to meet here again. Next time please bring some SC sunshine, we could have used it in March when it seemed to snow here every other day.

The service, food, and accomodations are superb. We had stayed here several times over years, however the new owners (John and Kate) have Elevated the dining and service to something really special. Recommend spending more than one night so one can truely relax and enjoy this Inn and surrounding countryside.
