hi there, I want to say I have not had a meal like this in a very, very, very LONG time!!! It was amazing awesome restaurant, the food deserved a 5 star rating, or even more, for sure!! On August 24, 2019, we were celebrating with my parent their 50th wedding anniversary, the 3 of us (my hubby, brother & myself) wanted to do something special for our parents (how many people do you know that have been married for that long? it is like Bigfoot, or a unicorn, being married, happily is just not a thing that is very common any more, now don't get me wrong, all marriages have times of not good, sad, or times that you are like, OMG what was i thinking??! it takes 2, work well together, or willing to work well together!!!) it did include a stay at the inn that evening, which gave them breakfast the next morning as well, it was so fun seeing what Mom shared on her FB page). 

Everything was cooked so well, delicious, so so tasty, good, yum, yum, YUMMY!! I keep talking about it, I drool just looking at these pics again, I mean it was just that good. Nothing was served cold, it was just the right temp, the cucumber soup, I want some more soon. I hope we can get there again soon. The cost was not that pricey either!! THANK YOU, for stopping by. Hope you are well. Be Well & Be Blessed!! Beth ( ;

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
