The old water wheel still turns just as if it were still grinding grain.

About the Property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

The Millers' Cottage is adjacent to The Mill at Traphill, in Traphill, North Carolina, which was recently featured on HGTV in spring of 2013, as well as in 2001. The Mill dates back to 1777, still stands on its original rock foundation with hand hewn beams on the edge of Little Sandy Creek and a 200 ft. cascade waterfall. The cottage deck has a welcoming view of the old Mill with the flume and waterwheel which once ground much of grain for the local moonshine industry and provided food for early settlers.
The cottage is rustic, eclectic and spacious at nearly 1000 square feet , has a new king sized memory foam mattress with luxury linens, wi-fi, full kitchen, large shower, basketball, 25 acres of forest, trails and creeks. Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, we are central to wineries, one mile from Stone Mountain Park, an easy drive to Boone, Blowing Rock, Mt. Airy, Pilot Mountain and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The Mill is a great place for photographers or to reconnect with nature. We love watching the deer feed early in the mornings and sometimes even the very rare blue bunting, heron or osprey perching on the fence posts.

The Millers Cottage is located across the creek from the Mill, with views of the historic Mill, millpond and creek. It's a great location for exploring the foothills, visiting Stone Mountain, and enjoying the local wineries and music events.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We came to Merlefest and fell in love with the Mountains and especially the Mill. A perfect spot, beautiful scenery and kind people who still wave at cars going by. Its just the right distance from traffic jams but not so high that weather is a problem. Not too very far from anything but just far enough. The fall leaves.... Wow!

Why the Owner Chose Traphill, NC, USA (Town):
Tom has a love for all things old, especially grist mills, instilled by his father who drove him around as a youngster to every site they could find. He has collected Millstones since he was young, there are 13 now on the property. (not including an ancient one in the creek for you to discover;-) This Mill was the perfect spot for this collection, and for our friends, family, children and grandchildren to start something new and while cherishing a true historic legacy.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Mill property has long been a place for photographers, weddings and events. Baptisms were even held in the millpond hundreds of years ago according to local church records. The Mill has undergone changes over the years but the energy here is undeniable. It is a good place to be.
