This is where it all began in 1988. The main Lodge is centrally located with easy access to the Lewis Mill dining room, pavilion, and the river. The Lodge has eight comfortable bedrooms, all similar in nature and furnished in the Shaker-style tradition. And, just for fun, there is an attached glazed-tile Silo with a spiral stairway leading to 3 very private bedrooms-in-the-round. Every room has a view. Read Our Trip Advisor Reviews
