Bed & Breakfast, Inn and Events
Enhancing life around a good experience
Mason and Holly Watson are the proud owners of the historic building called the Hines Pine Mill House. We are a Bed and Breakfast set in the historic lumber mill office building of the Edward Hines Lumber Company. Our Inn provides lodging and Events to visitors in the area and our community. Our vision was to restore this beautiful piece of history back to its former glory from the 30s and 40s. We are a proud family of 5 who have been living in the Hines/Burns area for over 6 years now. We have 3 beautiful daughters who are very involved in helping with our family business, so expect to see them involved.
We are proud to be bringing the historical value of this site back to what it means to the community and are happy to announce we have been able to open our doors to the public in way of a Bed & Breakfast, Banquet Room, Dining Hall rentals and many local events including Paint Nights, other events and bazaars. We currently have 4 rooms available , and our Banquet room and Dining Hall are available to reserve as well.
This building was originally the office headquarters for the Edward Hines Lumber Company, the very foundation of Hines itself. We aim to preserve this historic site along with sharing it with our community and so many more people by way of traditional Bed & Breakfast complete with rent-able Banquet rooms fit for such a variety of events such as but not limited to; conferences, birthdays, weddings, receptions, paint nights, classes, dances, markets, and workshops.

Great place to stay. Quiet and clean, the rooms are full of old fashioned charm. The building sits on a nice couple of acres, and the owners have made good use of the land including a fire pit, grill, and picnic table to relax around. We visited in spring, and the trees and flowers are starting to bloom- gorgeous!
Inside there is a cute little gift shop, and a recreation room with a TV, pool table, and board games, which was great for keeping the kids entertained. The owners are really nice and full of knowledge about the area, so we certainly felt that sense of welcome and charm that only a B&B can provide. And breakfast - don't even get me started. DELICIOUS every morning.
Many of the industrial properties around the building continue to operate, but I never heard noise from them - its kind of incredible to see though, because the whole area used to be one large tree mill, so seeing the history is a unique experience.
We'll definitely be staying again
