Wonderful stay

5 on January 24, 2015

Just recently took an over night away to this inn. I immediately felt at home and was welcomed warmly. I enjoyed hanging out at the dining room table just chatting. I stayed in the Front Parlor. It was very roomie and comfortable. Breakfast was amazing! I will definitely be back.

small town charm

Very comfortable. I loved the sound of the creek outside my window as it was soothing to sleep by. The folks who run the inn were available for anything I needed. The hiking trails start just down the road!

Rustic stay in Cumberland Falls, Tn

5 on October 25, 2014

We stayed in the Cabin Room, it was rustic, yet cozy and comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was an assortment of fruits, fantastic, oatmeal, pancakes and grits ground at the mill. There was an assortment of snacks right outside our room. Quiet and peaceful stay.

Once again they surpassed our Expectations!

We have been coming to The Olde Mill Inn now for 4 years for our Anniversary. We have stayed in all of the King Rooms, to see which one we liked the best. This year we stayed in the Suite again. We just LOVE Love the new décor! As always the huge king bed was just wonderful to curl up and watch Tv in. I love the new colors. The new love seat was a great choice. We love the new breakfast menu. We get up early and it sure is nice to be able to grab and go. OR if we want, sit with the other guest. As always there is a LOT of great food. The grits are my favorite! The town is looking great. A lot of new shops and the old favorites too.

Great area, not so great B and B

It is in the center of a beautiful area for hiking and recreation. The room was adequate, but not worth the price as the deluxe room. The breakfasts were disappointing for a bed and breakfast. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially Katrina.

fantastic stay

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!

Romantic Getaway
