We left early upon finding the Inn woefully in need. Inadequate A/C system Wet, dirty carpeting Overwhelming smell of mildew/must Dripping faucets Worn out mattresses Sticky furniture The park deserves an Inn worthy of the rest of it's merit. This place fails in a nightmarish way.

We didn't stay at the inn but did stop in after visiting the park and village which was beautiful. We got the dinner buffet and it was delicious!! Fried chicken to equal my southern grandma's and all the fixings. The chef was walking through and stopped to say hello. We complimented him on the great food and this wonderful bread... More

It is wonderful you got to enjoy our Millstone Dining Room's Famous Fried Chicken. It is most definitely a favorite for most! I apologize for the gas smell. It is an intermittent issue due to the location of domestic water heater vent stacks on the backside of our building. Please do not let that deter you from a future visit.... More

Wonderful back to nature stay with comfort of home. Highly recommend for fun family outing. children enjoyed the wildlife, they saw raccoons, birds, turtles, and fish. DVD player in the room was a nice touch as there was a Redbox within a few miles and it entertained the children at night.

My wife and I have been coming to Spring Mill Inn for 40 years now. The Inn is nearly 80 years old now but has aged gracefully in our opinion and maintains the quirky-ness that is endearing to long time patrons.

Place needs to be refurbished. Ok for the money and location. but the rooms are a little on the shabby side. The maintenance is shoddy. The cleaning of common areas not up to standard.

Stayed here while in the area for a wedding. The room was big and comfortable, the surroundings were a very pleasant surprise to kill some time. Well worth just exploring the park.
