This site ranks among the most photographed on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Well worth taking some to visit the mill to learn of the history of both the Mabry family and the role played by the mill a century ago. Activities during the season include historic exhibits, clog dancing and local music.

A nice stop off point when you're travelling the Blue Ridge Parkway. Unfortunately when we visited it was a damp foggy day in July (and I thought England had the monopoly on the rubbish weather). We spent time wandring around and sheltering from the showers. We would have stayed longer if the weather had been better. It's a nice little... More

We love this place. My husband can't have enough photos of this mill. Mostly closed for the season as of yesterday. The cafe was opened though.

Mabry Mill is a must stop along the Blue Ridge Parkway. A beautiful area with a couple buildings showing weaving and blacksmiths. They show you how the corn meal is made and the waterwheel still works. About 10 miles up the road from the mill, there are a few hiking trails ranging from easy to strenuous.

We got lucky and arrived just after opening. we were greeted & sat quickly. The staff is well trained & flow threw the dining room with ease. Plenty of items on the menu. A really great experience. When we left there was a 35 minute wait & after that they were waiting out the door..

I've been going here since I was a child. It's simply beautiful. Going on a week day is always better because it can get really crowded during the weekend.

Hi, what a great overnight in your area, capped off by a picturesque and delectable nearly roadside experience! The pancakes were huge. The grain in the batter had an 'al dente' freshness, as if it had just been milled yards away. Scrumptious. They have three types - and you may choose one-of-each in your order.

Mabry Mill is an old mill that you can visit on The Blue Ridge Parkway to see how they once upon a time ground corn into corn meal. Sometimes you can actually see them run the mill. The old waterwheel still works and it is a beautiful place to visit and take lots of pictures.

Walked around the old buildings and attractions for about an hour and a half. Managed to take 100 some pictures while we were there. The nature and the old mill makes a photographic master piece. We made this a daytrip, but would love to make a weekend out of it and continue further on the parkway....
