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.

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.
