The Coleman Suite(1 of 2 suites)sits on the 3rd floor of Epperly MIll, with a view in all directions that is calming and serene. There is ceiling to floor windows in the living room area that allows a full view of the yard. There are creekside views from each and every room along with a small balcony. The history of the mill is evident in the gear column that is the centerpiece of this loft. This 40 x 40 spacious apartment gives privacy and serenity while providing ample natural light.

The space
Epperly Mill was built in 1901 by John Epperly, his sons and brothers. It has been a staple of Floyd Culture ever since. The pond that was created by the dam was once a swimming hole that gathered the town, providing ice blocks during the winter months. A working Mill until the mid 1940's, it was passed along to several families until the early 70's when it became the epicenter of the "counterculture movement" as more and more "free thinkers" moved to Floyd county escaping the traditional suburban lifestyle. As such, it was Floyd's first food co-operative and then coffee house. The Mill sat silently for several years until it became the home to Presidio Arts run by Charlie Coleman. In 2016, a fire and flood threatened to end the Mill's illustrious career.
The brave men and women of the Floyd Fire Department went into the flood waters with ladder and chainsaw, (and lack of pants) to put the fire out. Remnants of the fire can be seen in the venue hall on the first floor. That's when we stepped in. With nothing but love and time and the skills of Bill Eberhardt and Floydian professionals, the mill was structurally stabilized, re wired, re plumbed, insulated, sanded and oiled, massaged and shined. Her old shell was given a lift and all other parts were hand created from materials found as close as we could to the mill itself, if not Floyd. Three years we have put into loving her, we think you will notice.

The Coleman Suite is a spacious and bright apartment with a birds eye view of the land and the creek. The gears from the mill still reside in the ceiling and the exposed beams give an idea of how they would balance the building through a bolt adjustment. The kitchen is remodeled with all the amenities of home. The stairs in Epperly Mill are original stairs which give them a steeper rise. This can be a difficult climb for those with bad knees,ankles,hips. All of the windows are original where they can be and as such aren't as strong as new windows. For this reason and others children under 12 are not the best fit.

Guest access
Guests can enjoy the beautiful Dodd Creek with multiple points of privacy. Help yourself to a fire in the fire pit. Free laundry is located on the second floor. There is a beautiful patio to spend evening or outdoor meals.

Other things to note
Epperly Mill was built in 1901 by John Epperly, wherever possible the original structure remains. The stairs and windows are a few of those features. This does make them a little harder to use. If you are someone with a hard time on stairs, or have balance issues, this may not be the right pick for you.
There is a suite on the 2nd floor. If you feel you need more space, you are welcome to look at the Kimball Suite.
