Hi Ranae and Beth captured this picture the other day!
We had such an amazing wedding. The rain didn’t hold off but everyone made it perfect. So glad that we chose to go with the millsite lodge for our ceremony and the colonnade for our reception. Couldn’t have asked for a better team. Thank you guys so much for making our stay and our wedding amazing.
This is a wonderful place to stay and to host any event.
Thank you so very much for an incredible venue and just an amazing day, you were so easy to work with and the property is breathtaking! Thank you for the prayer that you took time to do and all the extras. I will recommend your place to everyone, its just beautiful!!
Our family reunion at Millsite. Fabulous time!
Our family reunion at Millsite. Fabulous time!
We recently had a family reunion at Millsite Lodge consisting of over 70 people aging from 3 to 85 years old We had a fabulous time! We had folks traveling from NY, MD, VA, Il, MN, CT And Canada. There is so much to do for the kiddies and the others could just hang out in the lodge and catch up with life. The best part was the planning with Ranae and Beth. They were so nice to listen to our expectations and needs and went above and beyond to make our reunion a great memory! The food was delicious
and all of our family have commented on how special the reunion was at The Millsite Lodge.😊👏💗

The idyllic location for events. Our specialty, complete full service wedding weekends. Come, nestle in and enjoy our exclusive resort along The Cold Creek.

“I was initially interested in Millsite because of the absolutely stunning grounds on the property, but after meeting Beth and her family I knew working with them would be such a positive experience. ..And what especially sold me on this venue was the ultimate decor package.” Heather Peterson-Schempp

Story worth a read!—-
We appreciate the YOU!!
I was waiting in line for a ride at the airport. When a cab pulled up, the first thing I noticed was that the taxi was polished to a bright shine. Smartly dressed in a white shirt, black tie, and freshly pressed black slacks, the cab driver jumped out and rounded the car to open the back passenger door for me.

He handed me a laminated card and said: 'I'm Wasu, your driver. While I'm loading your bags in the trunk I'd like you to read my mission statement.'

Taken aback, I read the card. It said: Wasu's Mission Statement:
To get my customers to their destination in the quickest, safest, and cheapest way possible in a friendly environment.

This blew me away. Especially when I noticed that the inside of the cab matched the outside. Spotlessly clean!

As he slid behind the wheel, Wasu said, 'Would you like a cup of coffee? I have a thermos of regular and one of decaf.'

I said jokingly, 'No, I'd prefer a soft drink.'

Wasu smiled and said, 'No problem. I have a cooler up front with regular and Diet Coke, lassi, water, and orange juice.'

Almost stuttering, I said, 'I'll take a lassi since I’ve never had one before.'

Handing me my drink, Wasu said, 'If you'd like something to read, I have Good Housekeeping magazine, Reader’s Digest, The Bible, and a Travel + Leisure magazine.'

As they were pulling away, Wasu handed me another laminated card, 'These are the stations I get and the music they play, if you'd like to listen to the radio.'

And as if that weren't enough, Wasu told me that he had the heater on and asked if the temperature was comfortable for me.

Then he advised me of the best route to my destination for that time of day. He also let me know that he'd be happy to chat and tell me about some of the sights or, if I preferred, to leave me with my own thoughts.

'Tell me, Wasu,' I was amazed and asked him, 'have you always served customers like this?'

Wasu smiled into the rear view mirror. 'No, not always. In fact, it's only been in the last two years. My first five years driving, I spent most of my time complaining like all the rest of the cabbies do. Then I heard about power of choice one day.'

'Power of choice is that you can be a duck or an eagle.'

'If you get up in the morning expecting to have a bad day, you'll rarely disappoint yourself. Stop complaining!'

'Don't be a duck. Be an eagle. Ducks quack and complain. Eagles soar above the crowd.'

'That hit me right,' said Wasu. He continued and said, 'It is about me. I was always quacking and complaining, so I decided to change my attitude and become an eagle. I looked around at the other cabs and their drivers. The cabs were dirty, the drivers were unfriendly, and the customers were unhappy. So I decided to make some changes. I put in a few at a time. When my customers responded well, I did more.'

'I take it that has paid off for you,' I said.

'It sure has,' Wasu replied. 'My first year as an eagle, I doubled my income from the previous year. This year I'll probably quadruple it. My customers call me for appointments on my cell phone or leave a message on it.'

Wasu made a different choice. He decided to stop quacking like ducks and start soaring like eagles.

Have an eagle life.
