Clifton Mill Lights at Christmas

Legendary Christmas Lights
at Historic Clifton Mill


For over three decades Clifton Mill has celebrated the Christmas season in a very special way. Their light display, featured in Midwest Living and Ohio Magazine, is one of the country’s finest with over 4 million lights illuminating the mill, the gorge, the riverbanks, trees, and bridges.

There is even a 100-foot “waterfall” of twinkling lights. The flip of one switch turns all the lights on at once transforming night into a fantastical winter wonderland which includes a Miniature Village, a Santa Claus Museum, a Toy Collection, and a spectacular synchronized lights and music show that features the old Covered Bridge.

Every night until the night before Christmas Eve you can peek into Santa’s Workshop to see a live Santa at work and then, every 15 minutes or so, watch him check his list and go up the chimney to load his sleigh. The Legendary Lights run from the day after Thanksgiving until December 30.

Yellow Springs Street Fair

June or October

Held Spring and Fall each year. The streets of Yellow Springs will come to life with patrons shopping and visiting over 200 vendors who sell handmade arts and crafts as well as an eclectic mix of foods. The fun will again be happening in October if you are unable to make the party in June. Just a ten (10) minute drive from Hearthstone Inn.

We strongly recommend that users of the acclaimed Ohio Bike Trail system stay in shape at home, especially during the "off" season!  The Ohio-To-Erie Trail itself is comprised of 326 miles of delightful, enjoyable, and refreshing adventure!  Much of our system is paved, and relatively level from Columbus south.

We recommend that you use a stationary bike, elliptical, or even a rower to keep that cardio going!  For a great online program, designed for regular folks and active adults, we recommend BitGym.  No coaching pressure, no "leaderboard", and amazing virtual travels around-the-world, right from your own home!
