Why Bob Clydesdale chose Roswell
A very unique location and historical feeling. You can see the town square at the top of the street where weddings and special events are held every weekend surrounded by restaurants. A covered bridge next to the Roswell Mill is across the street. The ruins of the old Roswell Mill burned in the Civil War Battle of Atlanta are part of the extensive hiking trails.
What makes this House unique
Perfect for wedding parties, reunions, executive housing or family visits. Close to events and restaurants. Near GA 400 for 25 minute car ride to down town Atlanta. Two blocks from Church Street where the ten churches have weddings every weekend. Quiet street and hiking into the Chattahoochee Forest Preserve. Two antebellum mansions on the square and Smith Plantation a mile away open for touring.

We arrived at our approved time. We went to the door and someone was in the home. I contacted the owner and he had no idea why someone was in the home. He told me he would refund my money. I was there from South Carolina with my husband and our dog, along with my son, his wife and 2 children from Florida. This was a very special weekend for my niece who was graduating from high school. Bob (owner) called me back and had us stay in his personal home for 2 nights then we had to move again on Monday. We found that the people that were in the house were not supposed to be there until May 30th. This was also concerning that anyone could get in the home and steal our belongings.Although Bob did his best to be accommodating this was very disruptive for my family and is NOT ACCEPTABLE. I am asking for some kind of refund for the aggravation we went through.
Trying to recover from several deaths that happened in my family within a very short period of time left me feeling pretty depleted. Needing a break did not mean I wanted to deal with the hustle and bustle of extended travel. I found the perfect solution with the Mill House! Not far from home but just far enough to be secluded and heal in the coziest cottage I have ever stayed in!!!! Not only was it clean and well decorated, but Bob was so accommodating! I loved my stay and will be recommending this place to my friends and family.
Perfect home & location!
My husband and daughters evacuated from Hurricane Michael and decided to head to Roswell (where we had previously lived). 1853 Mill was available, accepted our dogs and was in a great location. Bob was so easy to work with and showed empathy towards what we were dealing with. The home was perfect - clean, cozy, comfortable, well stocked and safe - something important to us as we waited out updates on our home and neighbors. We highly recommend this home!!!!!
Amazing historic home
My Family stayed in this gorgeous home for almost a week for a baseball tournament and loved everything about it. It’s in walking distance of many family amenities such as the mill, a park, and restaurants. Our kids really enjoyed it if we visit over there again we’ll most definitely stay again. Would love to have gone on the ghost tours maybe next time. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us.
This house has loads of charm, was adequate for our needs. Bathroom and kitchen require upgrades
This historic house is in a Great location, beautiful neighborhood, but does require maintenance and upgrading! The kitchen counter and pantry space is just too small. The bathroom vanity is in dire need of replacement. The shower could be bigger. We had a very pleasant stay.
This couple stayed for three weeks while their house was being renovated. We took care of their house plants for another month before they removed them. Their suggestions accommodated in the planned upgrade to the bathroom and other rooms completed the weeks after this stay in preparation for the 1853 Millhouse inclusion for the third time in the Roswell Historic Society Tour of Homes. This was the only original historic home on the tour. A double granite top vanity with new light fixtures, chandelier and new paint modernized the bathroom. New cabinets, rugs and paint were completed for the two ground floor rooms. All hardwood floors were installed upstairs matching the original heart pine floors restored on the ground floor in this 170 year old classic cottage. Please see the floor plans and new photos in the photo section for the new layouts.
Due to weather, the historic home was quite uncomfortable...way hot or freezing. The bathroom downstairs with bedrooms upstairs was also a challenge.
The owner was helpful and responsive, but our days of renting an historic home may be over.
