The Millhouse Lodge at McGuire's Millrace Farm is a beautiful, convenient, and affordable place for you and your entire wedding party to stay. Charming accents include a working waterwheel, handcrafted ironwork, and custom built log furniture, all surrounded by wide open fields and the majestic beauty of the Smoky Mountains. This large timber-frame structure is just a short walk from the wedding and reception sites and also makes a great location for welcome parties, after-parties, or brunches.
The Lodge can sleep up to 30 guests. There are a total of 6 bedrooms, 6 toilets, 6 showers, and 2 sets of washers and dryers. In total, there are 2 King sized beds, 4 Queen sized beds, and 18 adult-sized twin sized beds. The layout of the bedrooms in the Lodge is as follows: (Keep in mind that all of the beds are hand crafted cedar and timber-framed bedding. The bunks are not your typical bunk you see for children. They are beautiful, very sturdy, and large enough for an adult.)
The Millhouse Lodge has an open concept main floor with a fully equipped kitchen, a large copper farmhouse sink, ice machine, double door refrigerator and freezer, oven, stove top with copper hood, microwave oven, and granite countertops. The kitchen opens onto a living room/common area which includes a flat screen television, pool table and a stately wood-burning fireplace. The entire Lodge boasts tile and wood flooring throughout and a covered porch with a stainless-steel grill and outdoor furniture. The Millhouse is the perfect place to make lasting memories!
