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 wife and I chose this spot for an anniversary get away from the kids. It was great. They had dessert waiting, snacks, DVD's and VHS library to choose from (no cable, satellite or wifi or cell signal and we were looking for that kind of get away! Although a few texts did come through.) It was like stepping back in time. The mill parts are still there, the doors are 1850 style with a modern lock added for your privacy. They had more games on the shelves and in convenient places than you could learn in a week. It wouldn't be for everyone, but if you want a unique get away... Go here. Only complaint was that the web said one price for a night for the room we got and I ended up paying about $40 more... It was worth it.
Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. However we are concerned that you paid more than you expected. Please call or email us so we can determine where the confusion came from. We need to be sure that no one else will be misled. There is a sales and room tax of 12.5% added to the base room price but for any room that would always be well less than $40.

John and Mildred were lovely and breakfast was superb. Their inn is unique and a true piece of history.

Fantastic! Mildred and John were so lovely. One of a kind place. It is actually far better than the pictures. Breakfast was divine. Great conversations. Sleep with the waterfalls, play in the waterfalls.

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.

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
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.
Nightly Rate: $120 - $120

The Creek room is large with a view of Shipman Creek as it passes from under the Mill. 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.
Nightly Rate: $125 - $125

The Loft room is our largest. It is on a floor by itself, offering the most privacy. It has an inside entrance, has a private bath with a footed tub and a separate standing shower, a kitchenette with a microwave and refrigerator, a separate sitting area, and a small balcony at the tree top level. One waterfall and Shipman Creek are visible from the balcony. The room has a queen bed, plus, in a walled off area within the room, two twin beds. This is a great room for a family or for longer stays.
