 Inn by the Mill - Stone Grist Mill

The Stone Grist Mill construction started around 1830 and was completed in 1835. The Grist Mill opened for business on February 20, 1835 and produced Flour & Animal Feed. The Stone Grist Mill building was also used as a Station of the Underground Railroad. Escaping slaves traveled to and from the Mill through an underground tunnel that runs along the creek to another Mill that was located downstream. Rooms below the basement floor provided a secure and safe place to rest while waiting for the next barge traveling up the Mohawk River towards Canada and freedom.

Rest and Relax in our soothing Spas that overlook the waterfalls flowing in the Natural Gorge.

 Outdoor Hot Tub Spas are located at the Grist Mill and CliffSide Cottage.

The 1835 Stone Grist Mill and Emporium/Ice Cream Parlor, 1894 Mill House, 1888 Hog'n Haus Cottage and CliffSide Cottage are located in a tranquil park-like setting near cascading waterfalls, herb and perennial gardens.
