My friends and I stayed aug 8th thru the 10th. you feel like family, the minute you check in. the staff goes way beyond, to make you feel comfortable. The owner Tim, every morning made sure there was fresh hot doughnuts & coffee. Their is nothing this staff, wouldnt do to make you feel like family. A hidden gem.

Happy to have lucked into a lake view room. Last minute trip to this area. The staff was friendly from the time we arrived! Room was very clean and cozy! We stayed in a queen size room and it was perfect for the two of us. Loved the deck and relaxing by the lake. Would love to have stayed another night!! We will be coming back!!

A great place to stay when going to a concert at the DTE energy center (fka pine knob amphitheater). I was blown away by the personal service, cleanliness and VALUE offered at the Old Mill. The location on the lake is quite scenic! The driver recommended by the owner of the hotel, Len, was also top notch, friendly and reliable. I was very pleased to find such reasonable and convenient accommodations in Clarkston and wouldn't stay anywhere else.

We just had our 4th stay at the Olde Mill Inn!! Our son and his family live nearby, so my husband and I have usually come in the winter for the Holidays. We have stayed in several of the rooms, so we now consider ourselves experts!! Our preference is a room off the lake with a Queen bed. The advantage to us is that the rooms are a bit bigger with a desk and chair. All the rooms have charming decor but in the non-lake rooms, we usually had to bring in the folding chair (provided outside the door for smokers) if we want to sit on something other than the bed. What first drew us to the Olde Mill Inn was that you can choose a room to fit your budget but all the prices are reasonable with discounts for longer stays. We also appreciate the little kitchenettes which make the rooms so cozy. The staff has always been lovely, the owner Tim is a gem, the rooms are clean and attractive. We've never been disappointed. So until we visit again....

This place was clean and nicely decorated. We had no trouble sleeping, it was so quiet. We fished off the back deck, just out our back door. Smokers can't smoke in their rooms (a plus) so they smoke out back. I had to move downwind to avoid it. The office staff was accommodating. We loved this place. Excellent value for the money.

What makes America great... is places like this, hotels like this, businesses like this, staff like this, service like this and the philosophy behind...

At first I just wanted to stay for 2 nights... it became more than a week. First, the yard was clean and well ordered with well composed and harmonical nature colors and materials, green themes and atmosphere, and the service at the reception was like coming home.

The rooms are clean, the place is well ordered, very safe and with an atmosphere that invites to relax. The staff are serviceminded, friendly and always effectively helpful. Two restaurants among the nearest neighbours secures the supplies of food, drinks and cappucinos.

The lakeview at the backside is like a painting and one may expect to hear the distant flutes of Pan arriving with a company of nymphs arriving over the calm lake where from one also may slip into larger lakes by canoe or boat. Debussys "Afternoon of a faun" describes the view from the patio very well.

Boats can be rented in the summer season, and there are parking places right outside of the door if you rent a room at the front yard. The price level is affordable, and quite satisfying according to the standard. This is a place not only good for sleepover, but suits also well to just get away for a few days and slow down, as it combines the pleasures of the city similarily as a timeless and rural peace lays over the view of the patio at the backside. One also may dip the toes in the lake from the patio, or try the fishing luck in competition with the ducks...

If one first have been here once... theres no doubt that one automatically think about it as ones resort in the area.

But order in good time, as the place is most often fully booked, now you know why.

Thanks for a pleasant stay. :)

Room Tip: The rooms at the patio at the backside along the lake costs a few dollars more, but offers a very po...
