Welcome to the Old Mill House Bed & Breakfast!
Located within the coveted Journey Through Hallowed Ground, The Old Mill House Bed & Breakfast is nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Madison County.
The restored pre-Civil War farmhouse was once a log schoolhouse. A circa 1799 gristmill, miller’s house and barn complete the compound recently placed on The Virginia Landmarks and The National Register of Historic Places.
In this region blessed with unsurpassed natural beauty, the Shenandoah National Park (a source of abundant riding trails, hiking, fishing and wildlife) is one mile from the front door.
Horseback riders are delighted to find trails leading to Fork Mountain, Big Meadows on the Skyline Drive and to Camp Rapidan (President Herbert Hoover’s hideaway) where they can walk along the streams and look into the remaining buildings and understand why he chose this location as his summer retreat.
A horse-drawn carriage ride on one of the most scenic country roads in Virginia and alongside the shallow, meandering Rapidan River is the perfect way to enjoy the beauty of the picturesque valley. Surrounded by acres of the most beautiful countryside in The Commonwealth, The Old Mill House provides guests a respite from today’s stressful lifestyle. Breathe the fresh air, hear the water murmuring and take a step back in time. The 360° views are breathtaking. Whether stargazing from the balcony, sitting by the campfire or having a leisurely morning in your room, peace and tranquility can be found here at the Old Mill House.
Shop the many nearby antique shops, bike through the lush hollows, hike or horseback ride through the park, visit educational institutions or historical attractions, taste fine wines at local wineries, drive the Skyline Drive or Blue Ridge Parkway or historical Blue Ridge Turnpike, dine at fine restaurants, or hunt and fish.
If taking advantage of the plethora of opportunities leaves you exhausted at the end of the day, then relax with soft music, candlelight and a soothing massage at bedtime.
Come to The Old Mill House for an
unforgettable Bed & Breakfast Experience!
