We were out for a brief two night stay in Southern Indiana. Our first visit to Spring Mill State Park. The lodge is quaint and comfortable nestles in the Southern Indiana hills. The second floor (which is the main lobby and restaurant floor) room was quiet and comfortable. first room I can remember staying in that had a DE-humidifier. Restaurant was quite good for a State Park, and has a large buffet, which includes drink and desert in the price. The fried chicken was well above average. The Pioneer Village in the park is a must see with the historic buildings and 3-story grist mill. The park includes a small lake for fishing and numerous (7) trails through the woods. Also on site is the "Guss" Grissom memorial building showing his life experiences as on of the USA first astronauts. Lots to do and see here at Spring Mill!

Room Tip: rooms on the "2nd" floor are actually on the "main floor" of this Inn

Double/double room booked. Small room but clean and nicely decorated. Ate 2 meals in the dining room. The food has decreased in presentation and taste over the past 2 year. The persimmon pudding especially is not worthy of a persimmon festival county! The room, though, was ok.

Spring Mill Inn is my "home away from home", every time I visit my good friends in Mitchell, IN. It's always so quiet and peaceful there, wonderful landscaping, clean surroundings and rooms, as well. This time we stayed in an "Accessible" room, and it was excellent choice. Large room, with 2 beds, TV, desk/chairs, large bathroom, with roll in shower, grab bars, etc.
Only 'downsides' was low water pressure, and since it was down in floor below Lobby, they had a "de-humidifier" in room, that was noisy at night, if you left it running. We understood the necessity, and it did it's job, but was very noisy! Also, the AC/Heat Thermostat panel, was right above the bed and had a built-in night-light that you could not shut off!! Needless to say, one cannot sleep with a light above your head, glaring into your eyes! I solved the problem, by taping a 'brochure' over it, to block out light.
Dining room was excellent, as always......good home-cooked food, plenty of it, too.
Front Desk staff always good natured and helpful, too.
Cell phones will work outside and in upper floors of INN, but below the lobby, "zilch"........so if I wanted to text someone, had to go upstairs, or outside to get my phone to work.
Also, not enough hooks or places to lay your clothing or toiletry kits, in bathroom. Especially if you are sharing with other person.

All in all, excellent stay, and will return, again, when we are next in town.

Room Tip: Accessible room was on basement floor. Be sure to ask about the de-humidifiers and water pressure.

The Spring Mill Inn is inside the Spring Mill State Park in Mitchell, IN. We went to the Spring Mill Inn the Sat night before Mother’s day for supper with a group of 6. The dining room opened at 5 and we were there when it opened. We all had the buffet and it all looked very fresh. The salad bar had 4 different lettuce/greens choices, along with toppings, cottage cheese and other salads and dressings. They had an orange poppyseed dressing that must have been a house dressing as I have never seen that before. It was really good.

For the hot items, they had corn, mashed potatoes, green beans and cooked apples that were the best I have ever had in a restaurant. For meats, there was meatloaf, catfish, Salisbury steak and fried chicken that was awesome!! They say it is hand breaded and it was so light and tasty! They kept bringing out more fresh chicken! There was bread and butter at the end. There was a whole table of desserts, however, we weren’t wowed with anything. They had cobblers and chess pie and granny cake and pecan pie.

You do have to pay per car to get into the park, but if you have a chance, you should go, eat at the Inn and then don’t forget to walk around the village and visit the old mill!

My friend and I took a hiking trip to Southern Indiana. We decided to stay over-night at the Spring Mill Inn at theSpring Mill State Park. Let's talk about the park, first. It is wonderful. It has a pioneer village with a restore working mill that grinds corn meal on the hour throughout the day so that you can see the mill working. This would be a wonderful place to bring the kids. The inn staff were very friendly and helpful. Check-in was easy. The inn still uses keys to get into the rooms. The wifi is good. The food at the inn was good and the staff were friendly. They had a buffet for $11.00 that was very reasonable. After dinner, I went down to the indoor/outdoor heated pool. It is always nice when you can sit outside and listen to the breeze blowing through the trees. I plan to come back again.
