A truly romantic experience. The Historic 1835 Stone Grist Mill Complex is listed on the Federal and NY State Register of Historic Places. The INn by the Mill B&B consists of the 1894 mill house, barn, carriage house, 1888 hog house and 1835 Stone Grist Mill built alongside the Timmerman Creek. The Historical 1835 Stone Grist Mill once part of the Underground Railroad. Tranquil park-like setting, cascading waterfalls, extensive herb, flower & watergardens with over 19,000 flower bulbs and 3,000 annuals and perennials. The Historical Site includes the 1894 Mill Guest House, 1888 Hog'n Haus and CliffSide Guest Cottages with outdoor Hot Tub Spas overlooking private waterfalls and natural gorge. Views from the Cottages show the deer feeding in the forest across the waterfall gorge. Deluxe continental breakfast plus home-made breads and pastries. Fully stocked kitchens, private baths, game parlors. Guests may browse in the museum-like Emporium-Ice Cream Parlor where you can create your own Complimentary Ice Cream delights and enjoy gourmet desserts. There are many strolling paths that meander along the Old Mill Stream. Relax in a stream-side hammock, covered swing or meditate in the Zen Garden. Historical tours and Gift Certificates are available. Dine in the nearby Beardslee Castle for gourmet cuisine.

We had a very nice visit here enhanced by innkeepers, Ron and Judith. The grounds are spectacular with special touches wherever you look. The walk along the Falls was special as were Judith's plentiful desserts.

A Lovely Stay At the Inn by the Mill

We were at The Inn by the Mill last weekend for a birthday celebration. The Inn is beautifully set; the landscaping and attention to detail are truly remarkable. The cakes and cookies were delicious, and the always available ice cream was a real treat. I don't believe we have ever stayed at a more visitor friendly Inn.
