Mill House Lodge has always prided itself on being a rustic getaway for people searching for a respite from their fast-paced lives. The quaint feel of Downtown Hendersonville feels reminiscent of old timey downtowns complete with a general store and a soda shop.  But, although we cherish the rustic feel of our area, rustic doesn't have to mean outdated. So, we took a step, we embarked on renovating suites at the Mill House Lodge. 

In Jordan Lodge we took on the task of renovating the bathrooms. We stripped the bathrooms and have finished the renovations. You can sign up for our newsletter or like us on Facebook to see some of our progress pictures! Our Summey House has seen two of its suites (401 and 402) received renovations. We continue to work on suite 403 in the Summey House, but are excited to complete this project. 

In addition to lodging renovations we are also putting a new look to our lakefront. We're adding a stone walkway down to the lake to further enchance your outside views. 

We at the Mill House Lodge are so excited to have these renovations ready for the spring and summertime. We are confident that these renovations will enhance your experience in Western North Carolina and at the Mill House Lodge!


Mach 16 saw the opening of Flat Rock's own Honey and Salt. The restaurant, which is situation close to the Mill House Lodge, on Little Rainbow Row, specializes in breakfast. Open Thursday-Sunday, during the breakfast and early afternoon hours on the weekends, Honey and Salt provides an Asheville-esq feel to a town in serious need of a good breakfast place. Their food is local and all of the baked goods are made in-house. Honey and Salt is also located less than a mile away from the Mill House Lodge, so stop by for breakfast during your visit!

It's the special time of year once again! The Hendersonville Rhythm and Brews musical lineup has been released for all five concerts taking place throughout the summer. The Downtown festival, which takes place every third Thursday per month beginning on May 18, features bands hailing from Virginia and Tennessee as well as close as Asheville. Every concert is free to the public and local beverages from Sierra Nevada, St. Paul Mountain Vineyard, Bold Rock Cider and Flat Rock Ciderworks are available for purchase.

In Western North Carolina, springtime indicates a time of year that we can get back to spending time in our favorite place, the outdoors. We can finally go back to enjoying the mountain scenery and taking in the fresh air in any way possible.

April 22, 2017 will mark the first ever Hendersonville Cider Jam. The event is aimed to celebrate Hendersonville’s rich apple growing history. The same history and heritage that has been celebrated by The North Carolina Apple Festival, which takes place over Labor Day weekend every year. This new celebration, however, honors a budding industry in Hendersonville-the hard cider industry.
