My wife, daughter, sister, and I stayed here for 3 nights during a visit to family who live nearby. We stayed in room 102, which is a 2-level unit (2 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, and small living room) in the top of the old mill house. As advertised, the sound of water flowing through the millrace soothed those sleeping in the 2-twin room.
My sister called the place charming, which pretty well covers it: that is, the furnishings are not pristine, the layout is a bit tight, the decore is ...charming. But it is clean, quiet, and well situated. The property is soothing, with a mill pond (canoes to use), fresh mountain air, and quiet. The beds are comfortable and we all slept well. The price was reasonable, drifting from $149 the first night to $89 the third.
The location is superb: the Sandberg home and Playhouse are within walking distance (but sfer to drive as the roads are pretty tight). Best of all, the Lodge is very near the Flat Rock Bakery (excellent pastries, coffee, and bread!--clearly a local favorite--and the Flat Rock Cinemas (which are almost not to be missed): caberet seating, with beer and wine available--arrive a bit early to get the best seats. We saw The Conspirator and the print and sound were great--first-run theater quality, if you'll compromise a bit on the booming, umpteen speaker suround sound. And the price is $7 a ticket--highly recommended for a quiet evening or rainy day.
