  • Another side of Napa Valley. Avoid the Hottest days to visit though. pleasant setting, history. Worth a stop 
  • Nice place to go. Even if the Grist mill isn't running, it is a nice place to visit and explore. Good hiking trails. 
  • Wonderful staff! Our private tour was Steve and he went beyond the 30 min tour which was super awesome and very informative! Will definitely come back with my parents
  • Wonderful staff and a very fun and educational tour. They have some fantastic yearly events (Old Mill Days and Pioneer Christmas) which are open to the public in addition to their regular weekend tours. Come see a living piece of history! They will even do milling demonstrations using the actual water wheel! It's a great excuse to get out and enjoy the outdoors and you can use their picnic tables for a lunch.
  • Cool mill but not much else. Didn't catch it when it was open.
  • This place is pretty cool, we camped there. I had a nice little area for picnicking, it was nice to see and the water was delicious
  • Easy hiking, wonderful open grounds, easily accessible and plenty of parking. It is a beautiful historic site.
