ABOUT

The beautiful Hines Pine Mill House is now under new ownership and management! Mason and Holly Watson have passed on their hard work and ownership over to a wonderful new family - Roger, Shani, and Ollie Hodge.

 

We are a bed and breakfast set in the historic lumber mill office building of the Edward Hines Lumber Company. We provide lodging and events to visitors and our community; we currently offer four guest rooms and event and meeting spaces.


The Watson's vision was to restore this beautiful piece of history back to its former glory from the 30s and 40s. The building was originally the office headquarters for the Edward Hines Lumber Company, the very foundation of Hines itself. The Watsons sought to preserve the historic site and share it with the community and visitors, and the Hodge family plans to continue this vision.

 

In addition to the inn, we can accommodate events to include conferences, birthdays, weddings, receptions, paint nights, classes, dances, markets, and workshops. Please feel free to contact us to see if our services can meet your needs. We also operate as a Harvest Hosts site. For fun new updates on our adventure, please find us on Instagram and Facebook!

Guest Reviews

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
