About

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.

Best day of my life!!!!

5 on December 01, 2014

The best day of my life happened here. I thought I was meeting my girlfriend here for pictures, but when I arrived, she was standing by the waterfall in a beautiful wedding gown. I had asked her numerous times to marry me and she finally granted my wish. That vision of her lovely form framed by the beauty of the waterfall will forever be etched into my mind. We stayed the night in the establishment and it was quite comfortable. The antique mill equipment and decorations were very interesting. I will definitely stay here many more times in the future. Thank you so much for your hospitality and generosity.


Unique & rustic B & B

5 on August 30, 2014

This B & B was definitely the most unique & rustic B & B that we have ever stayed in.It is an old grist mill & currently an antique shop as well as a B & B. We had a lovely suite with bed next to exposed wall, sitting room & nice bathroom. The best thing was the deck over a mountain stream that went under the mill. You could see waterfalls. It felt very relaxing & healthy. The kitchen had fridge one could use & was stocked with ice cream. Cookies & cake were available. You sat in kitchen & it felt very homey. The innkeepers, John & Mildred were very nice, accommodating &flexible. We arrived late & it was not a problem. Mildred cooked us a nice breakfast & we sat & talked like old friends. We would definitely return if in the area. Highly recommended.


Fantastic, historical B&B!

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!


Lovely, relaxing

Great place to stay and relax

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


Great Rustic B&B Experience!

4.8 on September 03, 2013

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.


Great Time!

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!


Perfect!

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.


Time of Our Life

5 on November 05, 2012

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!


Honeymoon Hideaway

5 on October 05, 2012

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!!
