POST OFFICE SPACE

At night with your windows open you can hear the hum of the Soque as well as enjoy the bright stars.

SHED SPACE

This space is located behind what used to be the Post Office and Store of the Old Mill. It has been renovated with numerous materials including steel, reclaimed wood, and cast concrete. The floors are original. The screened porch and large sliding window are unique features of the space.

BARBER SPACE

This space is where the old mill workers used to shower and get haircuts. You wouldn't be able to tell by walking into it today. The floor to ceiling rough-cut pine gives off the most amazing scent. It is a very private and cozy unit.
