Voted "most rustic" B&B in North America (we do have indoor plumbing). 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. Each room has champions who feel theirs is the best room. Early 1900's furnishings, many for sale, are highlighted within the Mill. Friendly, resident cat welcomes guests. Advanced reservations recommended. NOTE: When in the B&B, you leave civilization behind. There is no TV reception (but 100's of videos are available), no internet, no WiFi, and no cell phone reception (there is a landline available for guests) - people actually talk with each other. All those "no's" are yes's in the areas outside the building.

My husband Eddie and I stayed for the second time at The Ledford Mill Bed & Breakfast. Mr. John & Ms. Mildred are lovely and very accommodating. The breakfasts are divine everyday! We always make new friends when we stay. It’s so nice to live simply without WiFi or internet. We have the best conversations during our time at The Ledford Mill B&B. I highly recommend including this gem in your travel plans. Tammy & Eddie Laster

We had a great weekend stay at Ledford Mills! Our room had rustic charm and was very clean. We loved the rock wall! We also loved the no internet/cable and were able to relax and watch an old VHS movie with no interruptions! We loved the sound of the waterfall outside our room and sitting by the waterfall in the morning. John and Mildred and Snickers were excellent hosts with a wonderful hot breakfast every morning, good company, and lots of info on the surrounding area and the history of the inn. We had fun exploring great restaurants in Tullahoma (particularly Spinelli's and London's) and the Jack Daniels Angel Share Tour was phenomenal. Overall, great relaxing place to stay if you just need a weekend away to relax!
Thank you for wonderful review. We love our guests and are delighted when they enjoy their stay. Your review captures what we hope every guest feels after their stay - escape from the busy world and relax, plus there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. Thank you again.
- John & Mildred (innkeeper)

My wife and I stayed here just after Christmas. I loved the setting and the ambiance of the Mill. John and Mildred (Owners) were fantastic people and Snickers (the cat) was absolutely friendly and spoiled. The room was amazing with the rock wall and the antique grist mill equipment still in place. No cable and not much internet service; however, that was what we were looking for; a place to unwind, disconnect, and enjoy time together without the hassles of the world. If that is what you are looking for, this is the place. It is a short drive to several distilleries where you can do taste test tours, restaurants, and some nice antique malls, if you are into that. Overall, a fantastic get away in a rustic setting that I look forward to going to again.

If you seek at least four of the above-captioned experiences, far from the maddening crowd but close to the yesteryear Lynchburg "Walking" Town Square and the world's only Jack Daniels' distillery, the Ledford Mill B &B is for you. The only drawback is that you can't stay there indefinitely -- you must, after one or more nights, make a graceful exit back to the not so tranquil world where there is no nearby waterfall or scrumptious home-cooked breakfast. But one can always return.

Absolutely the most wonderful anniversary weekend. We cannot wait to come back, nor can Truman! Truman has mopped around the house ever since..."Aunt Mildred makes me bacon and eggs, Aunt Mildred makes me sausage and eggs, Aunt Mildred makes me gingerbread pancakes, etc.....Our Love to you two AND Miss Snickers.

We found this place by accident "googling" middle Tennessee B&Bs and booked a room not knowing what to expect. Found a treasure hidden in the back woods. Rustic but beautiful, quiet, private. Beautiful waterfalls 100 feet up stream - truly is an old mill. Some of the equipment is still there - just not working. John and Mildred (innkeepers) are lovely people and she cooks a great breakfast. We already have return reservations and I'm guessing this will be a regular spot for us.

First I would like to thank John and Mildred for the hospitality and the kindness they have showed my husband and I. Staying over at the Ledford Mill Bed and Breakfast was the best part of our vacation. I cannot say the nice things about the place. It was beautiful, clean, and it felt like you where at home. The room was perfect. The waterfall was the icing on the cake. It takes your breath away to see how beautiful it is. I would recommend this place to everyone if your ever out in TN. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Rob and Dorothy

We stayed for one night in May 2016 - frankly, we could have stayed forever. The room was charming, comfortable and had everything we needed. It was a real experience sleeping under the road! Sitting by our own private waterfall with a coffee was truly memorable and washed our cares away. John and Mildred prepared a delicious breakfast and we enjoyed chatting with them over a leisurely meal. This was a once in a lifetime stay and we are so glad we found D it.

The Ledford Mill Bed and Breakfast is one of the most unique places I have ever stayed. If you like different, this is it! Not only is the location and place unique and charming, so are the innkeepers, John and Mildred. We can't wait to be in the area again and hope they have room for us.

Just returned from 4 days staying at the Ledford Mill B&B and wish I was still there. I can't say enough good things about this place. Loved the location and the surroundings could not have been better. The owner's (John & Mildred) were the sweetest couple and made our stay so enjoyable. I felt like I knew them my whole life and feel I've made new friends for a lifetime. This was my first time staying in a B&B and I was a little hesitant at first. That feeling quickly changed once I met them and I felt so comfortable. The Mill is so unique and interesting, so many things to see and do around the area. I loved the rustic charm and the waterfalls were so peaceful. I think I've been ruined for life, I don't ever want to stay in another B&B except this one. John and Mildred supply everything you need for a wonderful stay and the experience was wonderful. Loved little Snickers, such a cute cat, she even slept with us one night. Such a homey wonderful place. Like I said earlier, I can't say enough good things about this place. If you like rustic you'll love this place. I highly recommend it to everyone and plan to return for another wonderful stay. Thanks John and Mildred, loved the breakfasts and loved you.
The Falls room is considered our most romantic. When you walk out the door you are facing the garden and our two waterfalls. This room has the best view of and sounds from the waterfalls. It has an outside entrance, a private bath with a footed tub, a propane fireplace, and a stone wall that was hand stacked in 1810. The Falls room is usually our recommendation if staying just one night.

It has an inside entrance, a private bath with a footed tub, a propane fireplace, a separate sitting area, a stone wall that was hand stacked in 1810, and a large private deck at the back of the Mill (Great for sitting out in the evening). Both waterfalls are visible from the deck and from the bathroom. The sofa folds out into a queen bed to allow for up to two additional guests. Most comfortable room for people over six feet tall.
