“Will stay again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

I discovered The Inn at Gristmill Square passing through Warm Springs on the way to Snowshoe two years ago. I found their website and decided I would stay at the Inn the next time I was passing through. I had originally booked the Rye room, but I received an e-mail several days before I was going to arrive stating that room was having maintenance issues and management had upgraded me to the Singapore room. The Singapore room was absolutely wonderful. My son started a fire in the fireplace as soon as we walked in the door. He was amazed by the shower in this room. It has multiple showerheads and is a tile surround. It was nice to have the toilet and shower in two different rooms. The bed and bedding were very comfortable. The room was right on the street, but the street is not heavily traveled, so we were not bothered by street noise. This room is directly across the courtyard from the pub/restaurant and I was afraid that would create a noise problem, but it did not. The breakfast that was delivered to our room in the morning was excellent. It consisted of biscuits, blueberry and white chocolate chip scones, coffee (for me) and hot chocolate (for my son). It was great not to have to leave our room for breakfast. The Inn exceeded our expectations in every way imaginable and we can't wait to return the next time we are headed to Snowshoe.

Stayed Saturday night in one the of the Miller's Farm House suites and it was very clean and cozy. Breakfast delivered to your room in the morning was just right. What really made the stay wonderful was dinner Saturday night in the Waterwheel Restaurant. The restaurant is in an old grist mill and was very charming. Started out going down to the wine cellar where you can pick your own bottle of wine. My wife started with a Beet Salad - sliced beets, crumbled Blue Cheese, Walnuts w/Balsamic Vinaigrette and I had French onion soup. Both were superb. My wife had the fresh stuffed Trout and I had Beef tips w/mushrooms over Tagliatelle pasta. Unbelievable meal. To top it off we shared the cream brulee with Caramel Gelato. Our server was fantastic. Having worked at the Waterwheel restaurant for 32 years, she hasn't lost a beat !!! Wonderful overall expeience.

A charming refurbished mill and rooms set in the various mill houses. We had a lovely room with an open fire which was set and ready to light. The welcome from the owners was less than warm but the ambience of the restaurant and the delicious food helped one to overlook this. Comfy bed and good bathroom. Breakfast is brought to your room when you phone in the morning. It comes in a rustic Red Riding Hood type basket with lovely fresh coffee , yoghurt and fruit purée and a breakfast filled croissant.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have an open fire and if you're going in the winter months it's a real treat t...

Last night, four of us had dinner in this quaint, historic old mill. It could not have been more delicious!! As appetizers, two of us had the French onion soup, one had the Caesar salad and the other person had the golden beet salad. We shared the fresh smoked trout. Paired with a wonderful Malbec and warm sourdough rolls, everything was fresh, crisp, and absolutely fabulous!
For dinner we had the PEI mussels, the grilled lamb chops, and the fresh trout. And for dessert, we tried every one!! Talk about a meal for kings!
Our dinner was over-the-top making for a true birthday and anniversary celebration. The prices were very reasonable too, which was a delightful surprise. Our wait staff was knowledgable and very attentive all night, and the soft candlelight on the white tablecloth was so inviting.
We can say enough superlatives about this fine spot--can't wait to return!!

One of our favorite spots to stay is the Inn at Gristmill Square, located in the village of Warm Springs. The Inn has 17 of the quaintest rooms and suites located in 4 separate buildings, arranged as if in a town square. Each room or suite is unique in and of itself, and each feels like you are home.

Our room was located in the Hardware Store. We had both a balcony that overlooked the main street and a gorgeous fireplace. What is even better is that the fireplace is fully stocked!

The icing on the cake...complimentary breakfast! They call it BIB, breakfast in bed. Upon waking, simply call the front desk and let them know you are ready for sustenance. Within minutes comes an amazing basket filled with coffee, juice, fruit, and phenomenal pastries served piping hot!

If you are looking for a weekend getaway; a quiet place to unplug, relax and rejuvenate, than I highly recommend the Inn at Gristmill Square.

This is our family's third Thanksgiving at the Inn (we also try to get there one or two additional times a year). It does seem to get better and better. Many of the rooms have been updated but, still retain a very quaint super comfortable atmosphere. We stayed in the Rye room. This is actually a room that includes a bedroom, a TV/sitting room, and a bathroom with dressing area. Plenty of space for the three of us. The breakfast in a basket is wonderful. Fresh baked goods, yogurt w/ granola, hard boiled eggs (my request), fresh OJ, coffee, Tea and Hot Cocoa were some of the treats we were able to enjoy. My son loved the fresh cookie left in the room for bedtime.
This Inn is spread out over several buildings. Very Homey and Charming. We have stayed in several rooms at the Inn over the years. There is something for everyone or group. We definitely will return. Again and Again : )

Room Tip: Ask when inquiring for your requirements as some rooms require slight hill side steps (other rooms...

Stayed in the "Dinwiddie Room" at the Inn at Gristmill of which had a king bed with fireplace. What a lovely, quaint bed & breakfast. The room was very clean, inviting and I would most definitely return. Had previously stayed in Warm Springs at the Homestead, of which was overpriced and not worth it, but happed to stumble upon the Waterwheel restaurant located at The Inn as Gristmill. What a wonderful find! We specifically returned to the Inn for the Waterwheel. Food is wonderful, staff super accomodating and the wine cellar is a must see!

The breakfast basket is also wonderful with fresh pastries, coffee, yogurt, granola all changing daily. The outdoor activities in Warm Springs are also great (e.g. Jefferson pools, hiking at several state parks). Would highly recommend.
