The space
The Kingsley Grist Mill is a national historic site that is not open to the public, is only available to one guest group at a time and is exclusive to Airbnb.
The interior and totally private space consists of 3,000 sq. ft. of mind bending solid first generation hemlock grain bins, shoots and ladders and never before used architectural element invented by the legendary covered bridge builder Nicholas Montgomery Powers.
All four stories of the Mill's main structure are yours to explore and embrace including two chained and cantilevered river decks ( featured in Achitectural Digest's Taunton Press )
with 30 ft. and 60 ft. views of Mill river's 100 ft. carved waterfall directly below.
You are staying in the only structure of it's kind in the world. Thank you for being part of history!

Guest access
Kingsley Grist Mill guests have exclusive and private access to the Mill river, Vermonts warmest ( low to mid 80's in summer ) natural body of water as well as the wood stove featured river house set atop the falls.
