Welcome to Inn on Mill Creek
“Keep close to nature’s heart…and break clear away, once in a while and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods…” John Muir
Enjoy being surrounded by nature and pampered with comfort at The Inn on Mill Creek Bed & Breakfast, located in Pisgah National Forest, between Old Fort and Black Mountain, North Carolina.
|We are open! The Inn on Mill Creek Bed & Breakfast reopened on May 22, 2020, in conjunction with North Carolina’s phased reopening of the state. We are cautiously and carefully proceeding with this year’s reservations, and your safety and comfort remain our top priority along with our commitment to provide a stress-free and relaxing home base for you while you’re visiting our area. Current measures in place include limited occupancy, a self check-in option during normal check-in times, spaced tables at breakfast, and other procedures to make social distancing easy. Of course, our location two miles inside Pisgah National Forest, our small size and large property, and the way guest rooms and our dining space are configured at our Bed & Breakfast are already well suited to give you plenty of elbow room. And as a licensed hospitality business that is regularly inspected by our health department and a longtime member of our state and national lodging and B&B associations, you can be assured that we will continue to keep high standards of cleanliness and safety. In addition to the steps we are taking at the Inn on Mill Creek to keep you safe, as part of our preparations we were among the first Bed & Breakfasts in North Carolina to participate in Count On Me NC, which is offering COVID-19-specific business best practices training, developed by public health officials and food safety experts.
Stay well and we hope to see you soon. – Dave and Brigette Walters, Inn on Mill Creek Bed & Breakfast

Day trips to Biltmore and Asheville, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Mount Mitchell (the highest peak in the eastern United States), Linville Falls, Grandfather Mountain, the NC Arboretum, and Chimney Rock State Park are easy using the inn as your home base during your North Carolina mountain getaway.
The eclectic small city of Asheville, also known as Foodtopia and named one of the best small cities for art, is 20-25 minutes west. The town of Black Mountain, with its walkable downtown, charming shops and local farm-friendly restaurants, is just 10 minutes to the west, while historic Old Fort is 15 minutes east of the inn.
Our area of Western North Carolina attracts the nature lover, the romantic, the history buff, and those who like to take the scenic route to a relaxing and rejuvenating destination. With five casual and comfortable guest rooms, more than seven acres of elbow room, and two rhododendron-filled miles of protected forest land between our B&B and the rest of the world, you have the easy task of taking your vacation at your own pace.
