At The Inn at Gristmill Square we take pride in being more than just your average bed and breakfast. Our guests’ testimonials speak volumes about the exceptional service we strive to provide.

"This is our favorite little weekend getaway. Its a hidden gem. We have been visiting The Gristmill every year for the past few years . The Waterwheel restaurant is fantastic for a romantic dinner. We cant wait for our next visit!"
"Martha’s Vineyard in the mountains…understated, quiet elegance, far removed from the sturm & drang of it’s colossal neighbor, The Homestead. Everything about Gristmill Square screams charm, and delivers. Highly recommend for the discriminating traveler, a must."
