Enjoyed our stay at the Olde Mill Inn. Katrina and Kathy made us feel welcome and were very hospitable. The rooms are charming and comfortable and the breakfasts were wonderful. Would definitely stay at the Olde Mill again.

Wonderful Experience

We stayed in the Cabin Room and loved it. It was very clean and comfortable and nothing was lacking. The breakfasts we had each morning were delicious. Both the Olde Mill Inn and the town of Cumberland Gap are very charming places.

Great Winter Trip to Cumberland Gap, TN

5 on March 06, 2012

We used a Living Social Certificate to visit this wonderful Bed & Breakfast. I've never stayed in B&Bs very much, but this was a great experience. Hester was so helpful and friendly and provided a spectacular breakfast for us. The location is in very quaint Cumberland Gap directly across from an entrance to the Gap. It was a little cool while we were there, but we plan to return when the weather would allow shops and all the parks to be open to their fullest potential. This area is great with nature all around -- I couldn't believe how many State Parks were in this area. This Inn is very old and you can experience a bit of history by staying there. The rooms are themed and were immaculate! We had a great night's sleep too! Stay here -- you'll love it!

Beautiful Inn, Amazing Service

5 on May 29, 2011

We stayed at The Olde Mill Inn B&B to celebrate my 30th birthday, and all of my expectations for the stay were exceeded. We were so happy with our beautiful room, the King Suite, as well as with the hospitality of the family running the B&B. Further, we were so pleased that they were happy to meet our special dietary needs; and that the food we were served was simply amazing. Not only were we impressed by The Olde Mill itself, but also with the town of Cumberland Gap. Everyone we met was friendly and hospitable, and the town offered so much to do (we shopped, hiked, and rode bikes, and enjoyed the magnificent scenery surrounding us). We cannot wait to visit the Inn again the next time we need a relaxing weekend away.

Fantastic, friendly, absolutely wonderful

We just came back from a weekend getaway and absolutely loved our stay. Plush, clean linens and towels... Delicious breakfast... Snack bar was great, we enjoyed having the midnight snack of sugar cookies and chocolate chip cookies... Friendly, down to earth hostesses... The suite was breathtaking. Peeked into a couple of the other rooms and they looked just as wonderful. Worth every penny. Hope we come back year after year!

Olde Mill Sound Machine.

4.0 on April 25, 2011

From our nicely appointed Front Parlor Room, we were lulled to sleep in our king bed by the sound of the slow revolving mill wheel and the cascading burble of the waters of the mill race. After a peaceful night of sleep, we thoroughly enjoyed a most delicious breakfast. For anyone visiting the Cumberland Gap area, we highly recommend the Olde Mill Inn! LHCKBC --- April 25 - 26, 2011

My son and I stayed at the Olde Mill Inn Bed and Breakfast while we visited the DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine. Katrina and Hester were wonderful hosts ~ breakfast was yummy and the place was a delight! We will be staying at the bed and breakfast each time we visit that area! Thank you for your hospitality!
