Owners: Alexis Willey & Brock Parker

Alexis is an orthopedic Physician Assistant originally from Hershey, PA. She found her way to the Western North Carolina area in 2012 shortly after graduating from PA school and has called these mountains “home” ever since. In addition to her love of science/medicine, she also enjoys the art of photography, architecture and building design/decor. Brock was born and raised in Cherokee, NC where he started his own grading and excavation business, Warpaint Enterprises. On the side, he enjoys creating all types of unique vehicle fabrication projects. From rock bouncers and swamp buggies to rat rods and party buses, he can build it all! Alexis and Brock met seven years ago in these beautiful mountains Over the years their friendship became much more and together in the summer of 2018 they purchased the mill. With her vision and his skill set, they have worked together to renovate and build a venue that dreams are made of! And we can’t forget our sweet Bailey. This pup has grown into somewhat of a “mascot” for the mill over the past couple years. She’s a 5 year-old beagle who came into the picture at the beginning of it all. She’s usually found wandering around the property, making friends with couples and showing them around the venue
