Stayed at Tree Tops Resort and walked one block up Roaring Fork Drive to Ely's Mill. Loved the wood making, bought a rolling pin made out of mahogany. Shop was cute with unique items for sale.

Visited here at the end of our motor trail tour. The place is very quaint and has a bunch of bric a brac for sale at big prices. The wood shop had some interesting offers. It's a nice place to stop on your way out of the motor trail tour.

Visited Ely's Mill early November and found is a very unique place with a wonderful staff. It has very unusual gifts and the owner when not busy she is using her spinning wheel creating yarn. It was very nice to see how it works. They also have lovely cabins where you can spend the night. Is very peaceful there.

Given that this store is located in an old mill, we expected a large antique and craft store with lots of nooks and crannies to explore. What it is: a very tiny one room store with a couple of antiques, and a few crafts. The people were very friendly, but it wasn't at all what we were looking for.

We love the old charm of this place not to mention to scenic loop it is on. We saw a few bears while driving on Roaring Fork Road. Enjoyed reading the history on Ely, loved the old truck and old buildings on this site.

I read the reviews on Ely's Mill and was expecting to be pleased by stopping by. Hmmmm...I must be missing something because it was a store full of junk. Over priced items....$4.50 for a postcard! The owners were not friendly and never acknowledged us, it was a very small place, and the owner's cat in the display case licking itself... More

We stumbled upon Ely's Mill when we took a small loop off of roaring fork drive. Try to visit when you can watch the wood turning and weaving artists at work. Picked up a beautiful handmade scarf that will long outlast me. The natural soaps, lotions and balms are wonderful and make great gifts. Besides that.. that have the cleanest... More

Great place to visit and shop. This is one of those peaceful places you daydream about when you are sitting at your desk and want to escape. The folks at Ely's Mill are very friendly and this is at the end of the Roaring Fork Motor Trail. They have some unique antiques and it is on my list of favorite... More

Stumbled onto Ely's at the end of the auto nature trail. Nice handmade items. I bought a wonderful hand woven table runner.
