Near the southern end of the property, adjacent to Pisgah National Forest and just beyond our pond, lies a half acre of wetlands, or as they call it in the mountains, a high elevation bog.
We love gardens… and plants… and flowers. This is no secret if you have been to the Inn on Mill Creek Bed & Breakfast. It comes as no surprise, then, that one of Innkeeper/Engineer Dave’s 2022 projects was to build a new set of six planters, similar to the ones he built that line the outside of the dining solarium.
Catawba Falls in Pisgah National Forest has become one of the most-loved waterfall hikes around here, and with it being the closest waterfall to the Inn on Mill Creek B&B, it is for sure appreciated by our nature loving guests. That’s why we want to share that the trail is currently undergoing improvements by the U.S. Forest Service and is slated to reopen in Spring of 2023.
One of our most popular complimentary amenities has become our digital guidebook, which we introduced to guests in November of 2020.
Wintertime is a great time to do birdwatching – it’s one of the activities you can do year-round here in Pisgah National Forest east of Asheville, North Carolina.
Enjoy photos from our recent snow day, taken January 17, 2022 and the following day. We got a total of 14 inches of snow, which made for a beautiful winter wonderland. It started Saturday night and snowed for almost 24 hours straight!

One of the reasons we LOVE being tucked away two miles into Pisgah National Forest is that the opportunities for stargazing are plenty. With very little light pollution, we have a beautiful night sky above the Inn on Mill Creek B&B. Every month brings noteworthy celestial events this year, including meteor showers, a total lunar eclipse, and planets aligning.
We want to take the opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone for your support and to all of you who stayed with us over this past “not-normal” year and a half. We are so grateful for you!
Great news for lovers of the outdoors: Plans are underway to construct several miles of trails in our neighborhood of Pisgah National Forest in Old Fort, North Carolina, and to improve on existing trails! We are super excited about this news because it means there will be even more opportunities for our fellow Old Fort residents and our guests at the Inn on Mill Creek Bed & Breakfast to enjoy getting out in nature.
