8 Dawt Mill Drive, Tecumseh
Need an excuse for a delicious dining experience? Dawt Mill features a few different dining options, including The Chef’s Table. Reservations need to be made at least 24 hours in advance, and for good reason—the restaurant features one 12-person table where Chef Ryan VanWinkle cooks up something delicious. All 12 seats get a view of the beautiful North Fork of the White River. If you’re looking for something a little more laid-back, inside the General Store is Sawyer’s Deli, complete with cold-cut sandwiches and ice cream. Spring hours are from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
