We just spent one evening here after a wonderful visit to Hendersonville, NC. A tranquil view of the little lake from our room. We arrived just at sunset. The lodge is just down the road from the historic Village of Flat Rock, the Carl Sandburg home and a short distance from the Biltmore Estate and many other sites. We had a lovely time and such a change from our usual hotel stays.

There is not room service nor a fitness center, so please ignore ratings as the system would not allow me to change them!

We thank you very much for your recent stay with us. The lake setting in the evening is very peaceful and relaxing. Many folks really enjoy that time as they unwind from the days activity before going to dinner at a nearby restaurant.
We are glad that you enjoyed your stay.

We were pleased with our room and accommodations. The lake view room was clean in every respect, including the kitchen and bathroom, and the bed was comfortable. This is a great location with lots to do and see in the area. I found the rate to be reasonable, and we plan on returning later this year with our dogs.

I used a third party to book the room, which caused a minor concern, but there was no fault to the Lodge, and I recommend booking directly with the property if you are considering a stay here. They were very helpful when I called to confirm my reservation and ask questions about the property.

Room Tip: call the Lodge if there are any concerns in advance of booking, they were helpful. We stayed in a la...

Visited the area for the first time and wasn't sure where to stay ... Ran across Mill House which was what we were looking for and was pet friendly as we travel with our pets. When I made reservation no mention the pets couldn't stay in room when we would leave.. We checked in no mention of this until I was getting in the car to go to our room and was informed at that time we couldn't leave our dogs they would have to go with us. Ok so I just paid a pet deposit so my pets can stay and mind you they don't run free we keep them in a kennel and pet deposit non refundable. So why pay pet fee...When making reservation they need to explain this before getting to the lodge..thank goodness it was cool so we didn't have to deal with heat issues or we would have had to find alternate place to stay . I will say place had nice rooms and clean but will not stay again due to pet policy.

We do thank you for your recent stay with us. I am glad that you found the room clean and comfortable. I do apologize that the pet policy was not explained to you at the time of your reservation and will get that clarified with the front desk. We have had some bad experiences where guests have left their dog(s) in their room and then took off for the day. Since it was unfamiliar to their pet, they barked continually until the guest returned. The barking was a distraction to other guests, to the point that some have left.

Very comfortable and clean rooms. Great location and the prices are terrific! Mill House Lodge has become our "go to" hotel in the greater Hendersonville area. We love the comfortable outside seating with an a view of the small lake.

Pros: The location is lovely, besides a small lake, and the room very comfortable. The front desk lady were very helpful and pleasant to chat with. She recommended a good place to eat with a 10% discount

Cons: The reception (front desk) closed at 6pm, and so were unable to resolve the lack of internet access. I managed to catch the (helpful) receptionist as she was leaving at 5.55pm, and she said she would contact the owner to reset the router. However, WiFi access did not return. It meant I was unable to talk by Skype with my wife overseas.

While the accommodations were fine, I was not ok with how Bob [---], the owner, conducted himself around my children. My two girls, ages 6 and 11 were watching TV in the LR while I laid down in the adjoining bedroom. Bob burst in the door - without knocking - then left - without explanation or apology. My girls were understandably scared and they came and told me. When I went outside no one was there. Never guessing it would be the owner, I locked the door and figured it was a guest who had the wrong room. About half an hour later he came back! This time, when my older daughter opened the door (without undoing the top lock, as I showed her) he asked if she "needed help reaching anything?" She said no and quickly shut the door, once again came and got me from the next room. They (and I) were very shaken up. When my husband got back from the store he was furious and went to go complain that some creep had approached our children inappropriately - only to find out that the creep was the owner!!! When he told Bob to not approach our children without talking to us, he made some comment about how they were being too loud and didn't know an adult was home. Whether or not Bob had malintent - his actions were at best unprofessional and **creepy** - at worst, predatory. IT IS NOT OK to approach someone's children in their own living room without asking to speak to a parent. Even if we had left our children alone - which we didn't - he had our cell phone! If they were being loud, call us! He didn't even tell them they were being too loud. Nor is it OK to burst into a rental unit without knocking - even if you are the owner. While I am not going to file a formal police report, I feel like as a mom I should point out this behavior so either it is either corrected or parents who bring their children are forewarned - or both.
