“Another fantastic stay in Paradise”
Reviewed 2 May 2018 for a stay in April 2018

Spent another 3 wonderful nights here. As always, had a great relaxing stay. Bike ride, hot tub, BBQ, evening camp fire, great hosts! Beautiful suite with everything you can think of available. What more can you ask for. It truly is a lovely place that has everything you need for a relaxing long weekend. Enjoy the beautiful grounds or take a drive into town for some lovely wine tasting. This beautiful Mill has it all!

“A little slice of heaven with warm and welcoming hosts.”
Reviewed 29 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Within a story book setting, Miller's retreat is in a beautifully restored and maintained 185 year old Mill surrounded by tranquil gardens and a soothing waterfall...pure heaven! Its location allows you to do as much or as little as you desire. You are close to Prince Edward County for wineries, restaurants or you can just relax on your own patio and have a BBQ and cosy fire while enjoying the wildlife and peace and quiet. We have had two wonderful stays here in as many months and plan to return in the Spring. It has become our favorite getaway spot to escape the noise of the City.
Thank you Suzie and Jerry for creating such a magical spot.

“Perfect Getaway.. Do not hesitate to book !”
Reviewed 17 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed for 2 nights and enjoyed the Kayaks, Hot tub, Fire Pit and the gardens.
You couldn't ask for a better place to stay, as you can tell from other reviews and pictures the place is immaculate and you are provided with everything you can think of. We had the pleasure of relaxing and talking to Suzie and Jerry while enjoying the fire pit. It is amazing how much work they put in keeping the place clean and picturesque.
What you can't tell from the pictures is the atmosphere and just how welcoming they are, it is truly one of my favorite places I've been too.
Believe me when you leave, you will feel a little sad because the stay was so wonderful.
P.S. They offered us anything we wanted from they're garden and enjoyed
tomato/lettuce sandwiches for breakfasts.

“Wonderful accommodation near Prince Edward County”
Reviewed 28 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This was literally the first time I stayed in a place that I simply didn't want to leave even to go out and see all that the local area and Prince Edward County offers. Our second floor suite was extremely comfortable, spacious, spotlessly clean and everything had been thought of for our comfort. We had the use of the hot tub, canoe, kayaks, paddle boat, bicycles, barbecue, fire pit. We had an evening fire under the stars. We sat by the rushing river. We enjoyed the porch swing and the beautiful gardens. The owners are very friendly and generous. This is a first class place to stay while visiting Prince Edward County with all it has to offer. Highly recommended!

A great couple who stayed for a couple of nights in August. They are avid cyclists and did some touring on our country roads. They were very easy going and we enjoyed having them stay in our home. We would welcome them back anytime.

Reviewed 27 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This is one of the more unique places we have stayed in. A quiet peaceful location close to numerous attractions in Prince Edward County. The suite was large and perfectly furnished. Susie and Jerry were more than accommodating and a great source of information about the area. We highly recommend the mill to anyone planning on visiting the area. We look forward to staying there again.
