Voted "most rustic" B&B in North America. A scenic wonder, the 1884 Gristmill, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the Tennessee Heritage Trail, offers three unique rooms(each w/private bath) within the old "factory" setting. The Falls and Creek Rooms open onto the grounds surrounding the waterfalls and Shipman's Creek. The Loft is a majestic high-ceiling apartment at the top of the mill, with a balcony view of the woods, creek and falls. Early 1900's furnishings, many for sale, are highlighted within the Mill. Friendly, resident cat welcomes guests. Advanced reservations recommended.

The Ledford Mill B&B was wonderful! A very peaceful location, with clean rooms, comfy beds and yummy breakfast! John and Mildred are wonderful innkeepers and are very knowledagble of the area. Whatever you to want to do, they can guide you! A great location for waterfall hunting and visiting Jack Daniels and George Dickel distillaries. The B&B is living history! Take time to explore while you visit!

My wife and I stayed here for our 10th anniversary and couldn't have been happier. It is the perfect place to stay if you want a quiet peacefully getaway. The owners were the nicest people you could meet and enjoyed talking to them during breakfast

My husband found this B&B online and was so impressed with all of the positive reviews, he booked us a room. I was a little hesitant because it did appear to be so rustic but it turned out that it what I loved the most about it! We stayed in the Loft which was so roomy and comfortable. We were able to meander down to the kitchen for late night snacks and peruse all of the interesting antiques and collectibles for sale. There were so many movies and eclectic reading material to choose from you don't have to worry about bringing your own. Both cats were so friendly and I couldn't help but let one of them in our room for the evening. Friday we ate dinner at Granny Fishes' (the catfish is great) and Mildred's french toast on Saturday morning was delicious. We enjoyed the conversation with John, Mildred and the other guests, we didn't want to leave! We are now looking at dates to reserve all three rooms with family.

This is our third visit to Ledford Mill and we had a great time, My wife and I met my Sister for the weekend and our planning on another trip. The Innkeepers, John and Mildred are great people, friendly, and Mildred makes a mean breakfast. We will be back!

My husband and I spent a couple of days at the mill and could not have been any happier with our decision to stay here. The rooms are rustic and full of history, the innkeepers are beautiful souls who shared their stories with us at breakfast and the area is just breathtaking. You can go to sleep to the sound of the waterfall and wake up to the smell of bacon cooking. For those looking for a fancy B&B, this is not the place for you, however if you love the rich historic flavor that the mill provides, this is the place for you.

My new husband and I stayed here October 23rd and 24th, 2012, and it was by far our favorite part of our entire week stay in Tennessee!!! John and Mildred were amazing, their hospitality and their friendly cat made us feel right at home, and Mildred's southern breakfasts were to die for! Although the mill feels like it is in the middle of nowhere, which it is, it is very close to a town as well as many tourists attractions including winery's and the Jack Daniels Distillery. Absolutely amazing place, and my husband and I cannot wait for our first anniversary so that we can go back!

We were there August 11-15, 2012 and loved every minute. We actually added a day after our first night! The breakfasts were great. John and Mildred made us feel at home. We stayed in the Creek Room and would do it again. A great honeymoon hideaway!!

We stayed at the Ledfrod Mill in October 2011. We loved it! We stayed in The Loft. We brought our small dog and had our 9 yr old granddaughter and our daughter stay with us one of our nights. They slept in the "Grandma Room". Great views from the balcony. The falls sound so soothing. The hosts were very gracious and served great breakfasts.

My husband and I stayed at the Mill for our anniversary about a year ago (October 2010). We absolutely loved it. It is nestled in the woods in a very quiet area. The downstairs room opened up to a path that led to a beautiful waterfall. The heating stove made for a very cozy room to cuddle up in and watch a movie. There are several things to do in the area. I definitely recommend visiting the Jack Daniels Distillery and taking a tour. The Falls Mill is also a great place to visit and get some locally produced cornmeal and flour. The area near the Mill is great for walking and driving. It was very scenic and peaceful. The owners, John and Mildred, are extremely pleasant and go out of the way to make your experience there wonderful. Mildred is a fabulous cook and made the most wonderful gingerbread pancakes while we were there. It was, by far, the best breakfast we have ever had at a B and B. We love to stay at B&Bs and this was probably our favorite. And I can't forget to mention the resident cat, Tom Cruise. Make sure you pop an extra bag of popcorn because he will surely want you to share with him. We highly recommend a stay at this inn. Kara and Nick
