My fiance and I were looking to spend a weekend hiking out in the Caroga Lake/Lake George area. This place, located just a few minutes from our first hiking destination, popped up in my search. Since discovering the joy that is staying at a bed and breakfast vs. a hotel, we've always tried to go this route when possible. This place exceeded our expectations in every way. We were met with coffee and pie by Judy, virtually at the door, upon our late evening arrival, which was quite wonderful after coming in from the freezing cold. She joined us at the little table in the kitchen, and gave us some of the history about the home and surrounding area. We first noticed how wonderfully decorated and spotless the place was, and she gave us a tour of the place, which was ornately decorated and well-kept. The bedrooms were absolutely huge and the bathrooms were beautiful. We were only staying the one night and heading out early for a 3-mountain day, so we headed to bed not long after the tour. In spite of our early departure (7 AM), Judy awoke bright and early to have our breakfast ready by 6 AM. She made us a full breakfast, complete with juice, coffee, and tea. We chatted over breakfast, which was wonderful, and left soon after. It was a wonderful, albeit brief, stay, and we will certainly return!
My friend and I booked because we needed a place close to my sons wedding. It was beyond wonderful. In all the stress of wedding prep we where so well taken care of that I didn't want to leave. The bed was so comfy with great old fasion linens.it was like stepping into a better homes and gardens magazine English style. I love my t-shirt. I will be back to stay. Just a gem of a hostess and wonderful home.
Beautiful setting in an atmospheric historic house, graced with the friendliest hosts you'll ever stay with and the tastiest desserts and breakfasts! We had a delightful time, with thanks to Judy and Steve . . . and Bella, Muffin and Mouser.
We had a 3-night stay in the Wildflower/Dixie room suite in the Mill House. The rooms are on the second floor and we shared a large hall bathroom. Each room has a ceiling fan and window unit air conditioner. The beds were firm but comfortable. Adorable Victorian details in the period style décor throughout the house. We were a little surprised that we had to prepare our own breakfast, although the food selections in the well-stocked cupboards and refrigerator were plentiful. The wonderful homemade desserts and complimentary beverages and ice cream more than made up for it. The only thing our rooms lacked was a hair dryer. Other than that, we felt very well taken care of by the lovely innkeepers, Judith and Ron.
The Inn by the Mill was perfect for our group of 4 cycling the Erie Canal. It was beautifully furnished. The rooms were superb, beds comfortable, and the surrounding gardens were lovely. The food that was available at any time in the kitchen was so convenient and delicious! Our hosts were friendly, interesting people.
We stayed in Cliffside Cottage at Inn by the Mill for our daughter's wedding. It is just a few minutes away from Beardslee Castle. Ron and Judith were very nice an accommodating. Cliffside was nice and very clean. They stock the kitchen with everything you could possibly need and Judith's bake goods are out of this world. We couldn't have picked a better place to stay.
Ron and Judith were perfect hosts. They thought of and included every possible amenity. They do not intrude upon their guest, but are attentive and ensure that the guest's needs are met. Quiet and serene setting.
This was our second visit to the Inn By The Mill. Everything was outstanding again! The kitchen is stocked with delicious baked goods- the Mill Wheel cookies are amazing! We spent most of the time sitting on the back deck watching the water and the animals. The leaves had just started changing so the view was perfect! Much needed relaxation after our wedding. Ron and Judith were so sweet and have a beautiful cottage; they were caring, considerate, and helpful. We hope to make anniversary trips back to the Inn in the future! Thank you Ron&Judith- you're amazing!! K&M
This is our second trip to the INn by the Mill, Cliffside Cottage location. It is the most wonderful, peaceful location. The home, the view, the fireplace and the hot tub are all perfect. Ron and Judith are wonderful hosts; the treats to die for. We will continue to recommend this location to our friends and family.
Everything is terrific - such a relaxing and unique place, our favorite home away from home! Rooms are charming with so many extra lovely touches. The sound and view of the cascades add so much to the whole experience, as does Judith's yummy baking. Getting into the water on a hot summer day is utter bliss. The owners are warm and welcoming - and are extraordinarily gifted at providing for our every possible need and wish. We have become "regulars" and return as often as we can!
Everything about INn By The Mill is peaceful, calming and relaxing. Innkeepers, Ron and Judy go out of their way to make sure guests have everything to provide for a wonderful experience. The fully stocked kitchen is open 24/7. Judy's baked goods could win first prize in any Bake-off contest. The grounds are beautiful with surprise fountains and ponds, swings, a hammock, and benches near a breathtaking natural water fall and stream. Whether you sit by the water or on the comfy front porch with coffee, you will not be disappointed.
I needed to be near my corporate office in Little Falls and there were no rooms available. I was so happy and pleasantly surprised that I could stay at the Inn by the Mill. It is a short drive to Little Falls and it is a lovely place to stay. I will stay there again.
Ron and Judith are excellent inn keepers. They think of everything a guest could possibly want and provide it, often in abundance. The setting is gorgeous behind the grist mill and along the paths and gardens they have created. The rooms were spacious, clean, comfortible, and, well, "interesting". What I mean by this is that the interior decoration is a little fifties quirky. This, of course, is not a problem at all; it's just something we didin't expect. The rating above for dining is a relection of Judith's baking -- blueberry coffee cake, banana nut bread, pumpkin bread and so forth for the morning and then an open glass small refrigerator filled with goodies for desserts when you come in in the evening. Very nice. Very tasty.
We had a mini family reunion in upstate NY over fourth of July weekend, so my husband, sister, and nieces all stayed at Heritage Meadows. Judy and Steve are so lovely, their home is beautiful and the rooms are kept clean and neat. Their farm is beautiful as well with horses, a wonderful garden, and a challenging hill for our morning run. Judy's breakfasts are too die for, farm fresh eggs, "crusty bread", cinnamon french toast, just to name a few signature items. We enjoyed our rooms, food, and chatting with Judy and Steve, great people. We will definitely be back on our next visit up north!
When our route takes up toward New England, we make it a point to stay with Judi and Steve. They are so very hospitable. Always a scrumptious homemade dessert in the evening, sharing good talk around their kitchen table after a walk around their farm to take in the country air. Their rooms are spacious and comfortable with good chairs to relax in. Breakfast is wonderfully homemade with in-season fruits, fresh eggs from their hens, homemade bread and lots more!. Judi and Steve are a very special couple. We thank them very much for opening their home to travelers!!!
Incredibly gracious and informative hosts. Bed and breakfast experience like no other. Welcome desert upon arrival after a gut expanding dinner at Saltsman's Hotel just down the road. Breakfast with these hosts is a true celebration of the new day. Home baked breads, sausages, homemade jams, watermelon, garlicky homefried potatoes, mandarin mousse and more. The only meal you'll need until dinner. Property is gorgeous and a pre-breakfast walk down to Caroga Creek is well worth it. Would recommend this B and B to any and all. Like living the early history of the area. Thanks to Steve and Judy.
My husband and I were visiting family nearby and stayed at this wonderful bed & breakfast in the country. Very welcoming hosts, homemade breakfast, and accommodations. Very comfortable. Would recommend this B&B.
This lovely old house and the ambiance .........coupled with the Mihail welcome and outstanding food and service / not to mention the well appointed rooms .....makes this a top dollar value for money B&B...................I will be back next spring!!!!!!!! Paul G ( Canada)
Heritage Meadows Farm B&B is a hidden treasure in St. Johnsville, NY. In hunting for accommodations for my husband, daughter and mother for my son's wedding at Beardslee Castle, I stumbled upon this beautiful, meticulously kept B&B run by Judi and Stephen Mihal. Located just miles from St.Johnsville, Beardslee Castle and Little Falls, NY. it is nestled in the heart of an Amish community. For the weekend we were taken back to a simpler, kinder way of life. From the moment we entered their home, we were not guests, we were family. We were greeted by Bella , the sweetest puppy and Muffin the very affectionate cat. Judi opened their home to us for this very special weekend and the one thing we never had to be concerned about was a comfortable, beautifully appointed room, a hostess who greeted us with warmth and affection every time we returned home and a breakfast each morning fit for a King. Judi is an artful, accomplished cook and willing to share her most treasured recipes. We have stayed at many B&B's all over the country, but I can easily say this was the most comfortable and hospitable one we have ever experienced. We left knowing we had found a gem and it is with great pleasure we pass on this review so that others too will know and hopefully experience a stay at Heritage Meadows Farm. I can assure you it will be a treasured memory. Many thanks Judi and Stephen... ~Todd, Mary Boller and Family
Stephen and Judy were so welcoming and gracious! They gave us a tour of the farm, then we enjoyed homemade chocolate cream pie dessert with them before we settled in for the night. They are so easy to visit with; we left as friends. Superb food; very comfortable bed. We stayed in the blue room with wonderful decor of days gone by. We certainly hope to go back again some day!! Thank you Stephen and Judy for opening your home to travelers!
