Staying at Mill House Lodge and itching for an adventure? Whitewater rafting may be just what you’re looking for! Lucky for you, we’ve partnered up with Green River Adventures, and we’re offering a special on whitewater rafting trips with a two-night stay or more.

Western North Carolina hosts a multitude of popular rivers for water sports such as whitewater rafting, kayaking, tubing and canoeing. In fact, there are six rivers within a couple hours or less drive of the area that are available for water fun and they have something for everyone, even beginners. The closest one is the Green River, which begins in Saluda, and is also where Green River Adventures is located.

A brief explanation of what the different classes of rapids are may be helpful before you decide if a whitewater rafting trip is right for you, so keep reading to learn about the classes. For more information about the different classes of rapids, check out here

Summertime is the best time for family reunions! A family reunion is a great way to get relatives together who haven’t seen each other in a while — especially since many of us have spent the last year not being able to be in close contact. Planning your family reunion can take a bit of time and effort, but we’ve got some ideas that will make it easier — so you’ll have more time to enjoy family time!

Travel and social restrictions are slowly easing up, which means that we’ll all be able to get out and enjoy this spring in ways we haven’t for quite some time!

Here at Mill House Lodge, we’re starting to see the world begin to wake up around us. Daffodils and dogwoods are blooming, temperatures are warming up to the 70s, and everything just seems a little brighter.

There’s nothing like spring in the mountains of Western North Carolina, and here in Henderson County, we love to celebrate it! One of our rites of spring is the annual Garden Jubilee Nursery & Orchards Tour. The Garden Jubilee is the perfect way to experience Henderson County’s agricultural and tourism businesses with a self-guided tour of local nurseries, farms, and orchards.

Henderson County is known for its apples, but you don’t have to wait until fall to enjoy the beautiful orchards nestled just minutes from Mill House Lodge!

When you book your spring stay with us, be sure to plan to take the Spring Apple Blossom tour. This driving tour allows you to enjoy flowering apple trees as you meander through the rolling hills of the gorgeous Henderson County countryside. Just download the Spring Apple Blossom Trails guide here and choose your trail — or take all three! Spring Apple Blossom season typically runs mid-April through early May, so don't wait to book with us! 

Spring will be here before you know it, and warmer weather means you might be catching the travel bug! But before you pack your suitcase and head out the door, be sure you follow these tips for safe, organized, and stress-free travel.
