We visited Big Mill as a little escape from our busy lives - just a few days to get away. No cell phone, no laptop, no schedule. The location was beautiful and peaceful. Great places for walking and finding little treasures all around. One of our favorites was the little boat house on the lake. I love taking landscape pictures and it created a beautiful picture reflecting off the water. There were so many great views! I so loved sitting in the breezeway of the pack house just outside our door at the corn crib. The breeze and the glorious views were intoxicating. I enjoyed my Saturday morning breakfast while sitting in the breezeway watching a butterfly explore around me. The breakfast was delicious. Chloe had prepared it and left it for us the night before so that you could eat on your own schedule. So much care went into preparing these home made and locally grown breakfast items and they were delicious. The views and the peaceful feelings will stay with me for months to come. And the verse from my Bible reading that Saturday morning...."Don't you know He enjoys giving rest to those He loves?" Psalms 127:2. I can't put into words what this little "escape" did to restore my body after months of working long hard hours covering multiple positions at my workplace. As we were leaving and my husband was taking in a last view of the lake, he said "I'm still trying to figure out how to take this lake home to our farm". Needless to say we were both impressed and so thankful to Chloe and the opportunity to visit. Keep doing what you are doing Chloe - it means so much to those whose lives you touch. God Bless you and Big Mill B&B.

After one too many generic hotel rooms on a college visit tour I decided to look for a B&B as a treat - mostly for myself. The Big Mill did not disappoint. Chloe gave us a tour of the grounds before showing us to the Mardi Gras suite. We were blown away by the charm and spaciousness of the rooms. Better than the pictures can show. If you can impress a 17 year old boy then you are doing something right! We would not hesitate to stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone traveling in the area. Be sure to try one of Chloe's homemade jams.

Thank you Chloe for another relaxing and enjoyable stay with you. The Mardi Gras Suite was wonderful...so spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. My two days here was some wonderful down time. Spent a day touring Edenton which was a treat! See you again Chloe!
