“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2014

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! We stayed in the Virginia room in the Steele House - very comfortable bed, spacious and well decorated room, everything we could possibly want! We would expect to pay more than $110 for a room like this in a beautiful setting like this in the UK. We enjoyed swimming in the very clean open air pool behind the Steele House, and would have liked to sit out on the front balcony of the Steele House, but we ran out of time! We slept well and didn't hear any house from other rooms. Breakfast in our room was really lovely - different homemade baked goods each morning, coffee/tea and freshly squeezed orange juice.

This a wonderful inn with a great staff and an absolutely gorgeous location in Warm Springs. I stayed in the Miller's House in the Barley Room and I'm already wanting to go back. The room is perfectly appointed with thoughtful touches, like cookies waiting for you when you arrive, plenty of lights, and a huge bed. The Barley Room even has its own private front porch, perfect for sitting with a nice drink in the early mornings, just listening to the birds, and the sounds of the creek rushing over the rocks. It is so peaceful. The rooms are large, the bathroom in the Barley Room was huge, bigger than my bedroom at home. The entire inn is so full of old fashioned hospitality and charm and it's all genuine. The staff was super friendly, the grounds are immaculate. It's like you are stepping back in time to a perfectly preserved mountain village. I love this place. All I want to do is go back, sit on the porch with coffee and a nice cocktail and read all day long. The Inn at Gristmill Square just welcomes you and invites you in, letting you take your time and enjoy a taste of the slow, simple, good life. Thank you for an incredible visit! One night was not enough! I must go when I'm not on a business trip!

Room Tip: Request the Barley Room for your very own private front porch, with access from your bedroom.

Great Inn, great location, great staff. Just spent a wonderful getaway at The Inn at Gristmill Square. We stayed in the Loft room which is above the office. We thought it might be a bit noisy but that ended up not being true. The office closes at 5 and opens at 8. You have the whole building to yourself. No neighbors, very quiet and private. It also has a nice deck overlooking the woods in the back. Again, very private. Breakfast was delivered to our room (picnic basket with yogurt and fruit, chocolate croissants, ham biscuits, coffee) All delicious and plentiful. We took our basket to the Dan Ingells Overlook and enjoyed a beautiful sunrise over the mountains. We will be back.

Room Tip: I would definitely stay in the Loft room again.

Just returned from the most delightful getaway to The Inn at Gristmill Square. What a sweet B&B! Filled with charm without being contrived. Our room was PERFECT for us! The attention to detail and level of guest care was incredible. The restaurant - oh my goodness - simply not enough superlative adjectives to describe it properly. Already looking forward to my next trip. Thanks so much for making us feel special! On our short list of all-time favorite places!

Room Tip: All the rooms have their own individual charm. I believe we had the best room there for us. It had...

We visited the Inn for my birthday weekend and stayed in the Bromley Room. With it's fireplace, king sized bed and little balcony we felt right at home! Our room was spacious and so was the bathroom. I always love when a robe is provided and this one was really comfy! The fireplace was all set to go and we were excited to have a cozy fire both evenings of our stay! We were disappointed that we couldn't play the bean bag toss game outside but enjoyed relaxing on the chairs near the spring. The breakfasts that were provided and brought to our room both days were perfect and the freshly squeezed orange juice was a nice treat! We usually stay at The Homestead when we visit Bath County but we chose this Inn this year instead. We were not disappointed and actually plan to return for another visit next spring!!

We were booked in to the Inn for one night, we had a lovely meal (at the bar - we hadn't thought we would need to book!) and a great night sleep, unfortunately...or perhaps fortunately as it turned out, we couldn't travel to our next location due to the government shutdown.

We enquired about staying another night, all the staff we encountered went out of their way to help us, we booked to eat in the restaurant and had a superb meal with a fantastic bottle of wine, all at a very reasonable price.

We stayed in the silo for our second night, it is a very memorable, unique and comfortable room, the breakfasts are fantastic (breakfast in bed) you simply call when you want it, one of the staff brings a range of breakfast foods along in a hamper - they even catered for our 'unusual' English taste for tea (with milk).

I would highly recommend staying in this fantastic place set in an idyllic location, nestled in the Virginian mountains.

Drove up the mountain with approximately 8 plus inches of snow on the ground. Reception was about as easy as possible. We were also able to move our dinner reservation forward after a couple drinks at the cozy bar. Everything from the beets to the pasta and trout was delicious and extremely well done. Dinner service was sharp and efficient without being overbearing. We were able to get a couple Samuel Smiths for 'dessert' by the fire in our room. We had a beautiful view of the snow-covered road out front. The bedding made for a very comfortable night's sleep. I must admit that I had no idea that breakfast would be served in our room. Some of the best biscuits and desperately needed coffee to brace us for the trip down the mountain. The breakfast service (Julie?) was super friendly as well. Owners loaned us a broom to free the car from 10 inches of snow and we were on our way. Would recommend this inn to anyone. No questions. No issues.
