Inn at Gristmill Square
Experience a unique blend of rustic elegance and country charm that is only found at The Inn at Gristmill Square. Offering both traditional and modern amenities, attentive service, and dining that will be the highlight of your visit to our area, our boutique inn in the heart of the village of Warm Springs in Bath County Virginia features a prime location deep within the ancient mountains of the George Washington National Forest in the Allegheny Highlands. Lush forests and quiet back roads create the perfect place to relax and rejuvenate.
There has been a mill in continuous operation on this site on Warm Springs Run since 1771. The present mill building was erected in 1900 and operated as a gristmill until 1971, when the building was converted into the Waterwheel Restaurant.
The Inn was created in 1972, utilizing five original 19th century buildings. Gristmill Square is like a small 19th century mountain village, with lovingly-restored historic buildings, fresh-baked muffins every morning, and an elegant restaurant housed in the converted mill.
Welcome elements of the modern world intrude gently – each room has a private bath, cable TV and private phone line, and a day spa and gift shops are on the grounds. The seventeen rooms and suites are individually furnished in traditional décor with the feel of a country home. Many have their own fireplaces.
