Peace with History

Katrina the Innkeeper was amazing! I had a wonderful and relaxing getaway compared to nothing else! The sounds of nature I heard outside my window was the definition of peace and tranquility. Conversation was fabulous both around the breakfast table and with its owner. Thank you for an amazing weekend!

Beautiful getaway

The perfect place to stay when you are in the area. Original buildings in a historic town, vintage decor with just enough modern conveniences to make you feel comfortable. A comfortable bed, homemade breakfast to keep you full through lunch, and a great family that enjoys hosting in their home. They are knowledgeable about the area, no hassle with coming and going as you please, and are easy to get a hold of. We highly recommend it!

Great chocolate waffles!

No surprises at this inn. Everything appeared clean and fresh in our room. Bathroom was super clean and the innkeeper that checked us in was very friendly and easy to speak with. She answered all our questions about the property and recommendations around the area. Breakfast was hot and tasty every morning. I would recommend this establishment to couples. If you have trouble with stairs be sure to book a downstairs room.

Cumberland Charm

This place is a real treasure among B&B aficionados such as myself! This particular place may have the best natural scenery I have experienced yet amongst my journeys! The inn combines pioneer and colonial history & charm with a feeling of informal kinship and comfort...all seasoned with a rustic flair. The innkeepers are spectacular, friendly, and dare I now after my second visit. The breakfast is incredible, hearty, and yet reserving a quaint and elegant feeling. This hidden gem is definitely worth the visit of you want beautiful isolated scenery and can appreciate the aesthetic beauty of the Cumberlands!!

Cumberland Gap Jewel

5 on January 15, 2016

My wife and I had a wonderful time at the Olde Mill Inn this past weekend. The cabin was a beautiful room and the small town of Cumberland Gap was very quiet, beautiful and enjoyable for us. We enjoyed hiking the in the mountains and viewing three states at once from the Pinnacle Outlook (about a 3 mile hike round trip). The food was good and the inn keeper was very enjoyable and easy to talk to. Held a good balance between just letting us alone and being present in the dining area if we desired to chat a bit. Had plenty of snacks, coffee, and tea all around the Inn so be careful if you are on a diet! A great place for those looking for quiet. Maybe not so great if you are looking for city life and activities. There are some restaurants and a movie theater in Middlesboro (about a 15 minute drive) but that's about it.
