Christmas at Biltmore has been a beloved tradition for years, and it’s not hard to see why. Beginning in November, the largest privately owned house in the United States is adorned for the season with over 100,000 twinkling holiday lights and more than 100 decorated trees.

Biltmore Estate is just a short drive from Mill House Lodge and offers several beautiful options for their Christmas experience. You can opt for either a Daytime or Candlelight Evenings tour, both of which include complimentary parking, self-guided tours of the Biltmore House and Gardens, the Biltmore Winery, and the Antler Hill Village, which features dining, shopping, exhibits, and a Farmyard.

Mill House Lodge is nestled right in the charming historic Village of Flat Rock and is just minutes away from Hendersonville. When you stay with us, you’ll find plenty of small-town charm with lots to do and see, especially in fall!

Having lived in Western NC for over 25 years, I can honestly say that I have never seen a fall that wasn't beautiful.  In some years, a hotter and drier fall may cause the leaves to drop over a faster period, but they are still beautiful. 

To our valued guests,

We just wanted to reach out and keep you informed that we are taking every extra precaution to continue to put our guests and employees health first.

The Mill House has always striven to maintain a consistent high level of cleanliness, and we will continue to do so.

To help reduce the spread of COVID-19 we have taken additional precautionary measures including:

- We are NOT serving a continental breakfast.

- Increased hand washing, and the use of gloves.

- Sanitizing all the room keys and doors, railways and surface areas.

- Each room is thoroughly cleaned and sanitized by staff after each guest checks.

The Lodge is still open and taking reservations.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Mill House Lodge is constantly trying to improve our customer experience and our accomodations are no exeception, of course.
