Originally a working mill then ultimately transformed into a Chart House Restaurant -- this corporation chose only spectacular properties!  After 20 years of operating as the Chart House, the manager purchased the property and successfully it as Sages. Then, the Giannopoulos family purchased the property and turned it into Brushmill by the Waterfall. This restaurant is well known, loved, and a remarkable #1 Steak House. It hasn’t been uncommon for guests to wait up to two hour on a weekend when the Terris Theater has a show or the weather is simply alluring to just going out and enjoying dinner in a beautiful setting.



Inside you are drawn to explore the rustic beauty in every room and the amazing character and history. One outstanding feature is the lower level bar which made from a tool bench from the old brushmill. Yes! it even has the holes in it to hold the tools of the past. The chestnut beams are still brilliant. Guests can relax in the traditional inside atmosphere of the magnificent restaurant or enjoy one of the two slate patios for outdoor dining.  

The seller will also consider a lease with the option to purchase.
