“Eclectic browsing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 October 2013

Diverse collection of used books, some new. Friendly folks and nice cafe. Two floors and numerous rooms of every kind of book you can think of. Also, small adjacent area dedicated to CD's and DVD's. Found a couple of nice deals, but the real value is in the browsing. Lovely setting with nearby stream. We visited just past prime foliage, but still beautiful.

Set aside an afternoon to browse the stacks. Bring a book and computer. Sip coffee from the adjacent cafe. Listen to the waterfalls. Browse more books Don't forget your bedroom slippers...you'll definitely want to spend the night!

“Coolest little place ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2013

A must see if you're in the area. A beautiful setting, endless weird used books, records and more. Such a tranquil experience sitting over the river having a great coffee reading some obscure used book. Unique place.

“The bookstore with a view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2013 via mobile

Great used bookstore and cafe built in an old mill along a beautiful river. Makes a great stop even if you don't need any more books, and you may spot one that says you do.

“Books on a brook...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

A rustic, old independent bookstore that represents a local treasure for so many. The Bookmill is a wonderful place to wander and browse. Overlooking a lovely waterfall, one an easily get lost in the solitude of this special landmark.
