This was our very first visit to MillTales…we immediately felt the warmth of the Inn when we arrived. The atmosphere is welcoming and the décor is so unique with all of the natural wood themes and antiques. It almost feels as if you’re back in time, yet with all the benefits of modern technology – best of both worlds kinda thing.

Our food was delicious; we ordered shrimp and wrap appetizers, prime rib and salmon. Everything was cooked to perfection and our server, Lindsay, was exceptional and super friendly. Craiger’s fresh fish was outstanding and we enjoyed our brunch the next day, too.

The owners were totally hospitable and showed much interest and care in their guests’ experience. We found them to be very gracious and openhearted.

Our stay was magical. The rooms were clean and inviting. We went for walks by the creek on the trails and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. We loved it! We will be back…

We have been to the Mill Tales Inn twice for our staff Christmas Party. They give you the basement room for free if you have a number of people attending - we had 40 people. The food is amazing. We had prime rib of beef, ham, chicken, and of course the pickerel. There were potatoes and vegetables too of course. Guests went up more than once, and it was usually for the pickerel and the beef! The costs are very reasonable for the amount and quality of the food. There was a huge line up of 'regular' customers so the place is well known for it's food. The atmosphere in the basement is plain and simple, but since you have it to yourself, you can create your own fun Christmas party. The food sells this place!

We stayed in one of the Jacuzzi suites anticipating a relaxing soak at the end of the day. When we started to fill the tub, we discovered a scummy bathtub ring. It clearly had not been cleaned after the last user. There was a crusty stain on the bottom sheet on the bed, don't know what it was but it was right at the top end beside the pillow. ewwh! There was only one wash cloth, even though we had reserved the room for a couple. Also only one coffee cup and no regular coffee for the in room coffee brewer, only decaf or tea. We asked for a second wash cloth and for the coffee situation to be rectified before going out for the evening, expecting it to be rectified by the time we returned later in the evening. It was not. Our suspicion is that the room had not been cleaned and prepped after the last customer. Very substandard. Saving grace was breakfast (not included in room price) was good and restaurant service friendly and prompt. There was no-one at the desk nor easily summoned when we were leaving in the morning. In an industry where customer service is so important, this inn failed miserably. We were given the excuse by the dining room staff that the innkeeper was ill.

A longer review would just reiterate what other large groups have encountered!! When you have to clear your own dishes after waiting 1.5 hours when there is only 2 dishes on the special menu - w only 2 plates coming at a time my family left to go to another family due before in laws got their meal. Meal was awful. You might as well bring your own drinks as some never received and I guess water in the table is too much to ask for. Only good thing about this restaurant is the location and a for sale sign which would hopefully result in new mgmt and staff!

Hello my name is Lauralee Craig ..my husband and I are the owners of the Mill.He built this mill to provide a nice atmosphere and venue for ppl to enjoy..Along with having a wedding last wk.and 2 events coupled with hiring 5 new ppl to keep up to an ever growing business. We have had a grueling wk ..Of course that is not the concern of our customers but what I dont understand is why no one came to myself or my husband to deal with ALL or any of your concerns.
We both would have addressed the problems and made sure you ALL left satisfied..
We take great pride in the building ...food ...accommodation and service at the mill and it truly was a 9 yr labour of love for the community to enjoy .We live here as well and its sad to think that you would want us to move out to make this a better place?..I would like if you would allow us to give you a gift card to show you we are NOT always running in the fashion you experienced on a date? Unknown ..
I would appreciate in all fairness if you gave our staff and our venue a change to show you that EVERYONE can have an "off" day .We have provided 35 jobs for the area and just hired 5 ..It takes time patience and work to get everyone up to the standard of which we are happy to provide our long standing loyal clientele.So in light of it all please consider contacting me so I may be given a chance to rectify the problem .Thank you for your time Lauralee

My husband and I went on Friday evening for a 6pm reservation and were sat immediately. Staff are very friendly. Drinks were ordered but the waitress forgot to bring my water and I had to ask her 3X over the coarse of dinner before I got it. We had chicken wings, salad and the beef ribs. Dinner was very good and too much for me to eat so packed up leftovers. Service by our waitress was ok. but she needed to give more attention to our order and asking if things were ok. Everything seemed to come out at once. A good dining experience though and good view with the trees and nature out the big windows. We will go back again for sure.

Last night I had dinner at Mill Tales. Dinner was good---not great--atmosphere was the issue. Owners were discussing year end business right behind us as we waited for our food and then ate. This came close to me walking out as a result. I understand discussions need to happen but please do not hold these discussions in front or near customers--it is very un professional. Sadly this is not the first time I have experienced this, but last night was the straw that broke the camels back--Use the office to discuss office matters, staff scheduling issues, staff hiring matters etc.
