I was so in love with this place and will definitely go back, it was close to several attractions, but the feel of seclusion. The place did need a good dusting to clear away all the spider webs, but the view from the deck and the sound of the waterfall was worth any minor details like spider webs.

“Awesome little place to just get away!!”

Reviewed 17 Nov 2016

My wife and I were looking for a place not too far from home that we could just "get away" for a nice weekend. We have some friends that highly recommended Highland Lake. The Upper Mill House was just what we were looking for. Quiet, nice view and a short distance to downtown. I enjoyed every bit of the visit and will definitely be back. If I can make one recommendation I would say that since renters are charged a cleaning fee make sure that the places are dusted. Everything that we used to cook, sleep, bathe and lounge on was spotless but there was a large amount of dust buildup on window seals/ledges and cobwebs in the lighting. Please don't take this recommendation the wrong way. Our stay was wonderful and really could not have ask for anything more!! Cant wait to return! Not a big deal but could never find the internet network name for wifi. Not sure if it was down or an issue that you may need to check on.

“Lovely views on pleasant site with great walks”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2016

This rental is a converted grist mill. As you fall asleep you can hear the sound of the waterfall. The location is excellent with a grocery store nearby as well as all of the attractions of Hendersonville. The owner was very nice as well.

“Beyond Perfect”

The Upper Millhouse was an absolute dream to stay in. Cozy, charming, and well-appointed. It was the perfect home-base for our weekend retreat.

“Relaxing and rejuvenating!”

Reviewed 23 Oct 2013

This is a very unique place, in a very special location. The house was perfect and we so enjoyed the sounds of the nearby falls. The surrounding area is lovely and it was the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. I plan to return!

Perfect setting for a weekend stay. Note that there is no washer/dryer. being on the waterfall was beautiful.

“Breathtaking upon arrival.”

Reviewed 17 Apr 2013

The view was amazing, a sight we enjoyed looking at constantly. The bedroom was upstairs and the view is different but equally amazing. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony and relaxing. Our sleep was enhanced by the waterfall. We would definitely stay at the Millhouse again. We have already recommended this place to family members.

“Total relaxation”

Reviewed 24 Jan 2013

The home was just right! It was very clean and perfect for a weekend getaway. The owner was friendly and courteous. The best feature was the waterfall. It made for a restful night's sleep.

“We enjoyed our stay as much as we have in the past”

Reviewed 12 Dec 2012

The UMH is great and we truly enjoyed it. We have no complaints. In terms of areas for improvement, a more up to date TV would be nice but not necessary. The only other issue is the difference between the heat on the first floor and the seoond floor. The thermostat is on the first floor and we had to set it low on the first floor to keep the second floor from being too warm, due to the design of the house and the fact that the heat goes us the stairwell. Not much you can do about that though and it was a minor inconvenience. It would not keep me from going back. Wi-Fi was perfect as was the oven, toaster and stove.
