Mills River Township Reviews

2 reviews
The area is great! There is a lot of wilderness to explore and also the city is nearby so you can also enjoy that. There is biking, hiking, fishing, hunting, shopping, and attractions such as the biltmore house and the Flatt rock playhouse. The community is very close nit and welcoming. We have our fair share of downs just like anyhwere else but we pull ourselves back together very quickly. We do our best at the up keep of the town and we even have some new businesses. The airport is nearby so we have a lot of new people stopping in regularly and keeping the scene alive. Overall the community is very lively and growing.

Mills River is great little farming community where wildlife abounds but is conveniently located just minutes from Asheville, Brevard or Hendersonville, North Carolina.
