“Five star dining!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

The Mill is charming and historic, and the bed was comfortable, but the true star of this B&B is the Inn Keeper Kevin, who is a wonderful host and a master chef. My wife and I were there for only one night, but we hope to be back again soon. Both the dinner and the breakfast Kevin prepared and served were among the very best we’ve ever had at any restaurant anywhere. The restaurant is fantastic, and the night we were there, it was open only to B&B guests. Because Kevin and his wife have no additional help in the kitchen or in the restaurant (at least on the night we were there), guest seatings for dinner were spaced in time so that Kevin and his wife could fully concentrate on cooking and serving the entrees for each table separately. It was like having a master chef focusing entirely and exclusively on just our meal. My wife had the Millstone Filet Mignon and I had the Filet Mignon & Lobster Tail, each cooked to perfection and paired with a lovely local cabernet. For breakfast we each had incredibly tasty omelets stuffed with a mix of locally grown vegetables. Besides being an Inn Keeper, Kevin also owns a nearby farm and is wonderfully tuned into the local farm-to-table scene.

A wonderful converted mill with a most congenial host. A beautiful property beside a burbling brook. The room was large and well appointed. The food was exceptional. Kevin is a attentive and interesting host who loves to chat with his guests. It does mean falling out of the electronic world for a while but that is a small price to pay.

This converted mill is over 200 years old with all the quirks of such a building as well as all the modern necessities. The host welcomes you at the door with a smile and the offer of a favorite beverage.
The dining room offers an amazing selection of appetizers, entrees and desserts for dinner. You need to make a separate dinner reservation - truly an enjoyable experience.
Breakfast is cooked to order in the morning and is delicious as well.
The location is very convenient to I-81 and the Blue Ridge Parkway. Several great vineyards are nearby as well!

If you are looking for a place to stay with multi-channel state of the art TV and super-fast Wi-Fi, I’m sorry but tis is not it. But if you appreciate charm, character and good taste give it a try.

In reality the mill is even nicer than in the photographs on its website. It is easily reached after a short drive from I64 . Kevin is a very amenable host who makes sure that his guests have everything they need. The room was nicely furnished with desk, sofa, wardrobe and a very comfortable bathroom the style of furnishing is very much in keeping with the age of the mill (200 years or so). The en suite bathroom has bath with shower over.

Breakfast is cooked to order and (within reason) served at a time to suit the guest. There is also a restaurant where we ate a superb fine dining meal which, although not open to the public every night can always cater for guests provided they have booked in advance.

Although the mill does not have internet access there is a good Wi-Fi connection at McDonalds one intersection away on freeway. There is a TV in the room and a selection of DVD’s are available.

We very much enjoyed the charm and history of the mill and Kevin made our stay an absolute delight.

Room Tip: Be aware there is a steep flight of stairs leading up to the bedrooms.

Wife and I always to the mountains for our anniversary and close friends who live near this place strongly recommended it.

Been all around the world in tons of 5 star places, but this is now one of my favs. Added blessing was we had owner/keeper all to ourselves and were the only ones there because of the extreme cold last night (1/24/14).

Setting is dramatic, on one of Virginia's twistiest roads, Rt. 56, and this is just a few miles down from the Blue Ridge Parkway.

The meal was exquisite in every way, 5 star in presentation, service, taste, creativity, uniqueness, flavor, and more. COZY pre-1843 mill, cozy wood stove next to our table, and Kevin could not have been a better host/chef/server. You'll fall in love with the guy if you have time to be with him.

We then stayed in the Mill Cabin which was a dream for us.....but then, we live in a stunning log home my sons & I built 14 years ago that people say is like a resort lodge. Mill Cabin was built in 1873 as a Mill Store, but now converted to as cozy a cabin for two as one can imagine: Stone fireplace/insert with blazing fire next to deep, 2-person jetted tub, LR/sitting area, sleeping area at other end. Old, quaint, warm in spite of single digit temps outside.

As an added treat, the water falling from the trough to the water wheel was frozen, about 25' of solid vertical ice, lit up with lights. Beautiful.

We will be back. For both the dining, the stay, and more great time with the innkeeper, Kevin.

Can't wait.

PS: Don't be afraid to go here in the winter.....it's super warm in every way, and you won't be fighting the crowds. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to have the place to yourselves as we did.

Room Tip: Go for the Mill Cabin. It's worth it.

As frequent visitors to the Osceola, we're never disappointed! The hosts, Kim & Kevin are always friendly, welcoming & accommodating. They treat us like family. The rooms are clean, relaxing & comfy! The food is wonderful! Breakfast is filling & most anything you could want. Dinner is top notch...fine dining quality in a great atmosphere. Dine in your hiking clothes after a long day out or dress up, it's very relaxed. The deck is a nice feature to sit out under the stars & listen to the creek running by. It's location is great too. We've stayed various times throughout the year & there's always something new nearby to discover!

We only stayed one night, as part of a trip from Chicago to Washington via the blue ridge parkway, we'd have loved to have stayed longer. The Mill has so much character , I doubt there is a right angle in the place.
We arrived quite late, but Kevin was most welcoming, and once we were settled in cooked us a great meal.
Breakfast was made to order and it was fantastic , freshly squeezed juice and a wonderful omelette.

It'd be a great base for a few days longer as the porch looks like a great place ot have a drink as evening sets in, -shame we couldn't do it.
