Took my wife for a little getaway. Absolutely fantastic place, great staff who are very accommodating to any food allergies or preferences you may have. This is a gem, a really cool historic place in a great little town with dining and a little bar all within walking distance. Great views and great outdoor activities and hiking right outside your door. I will absolutely stay here again

My husband and I stayed at the Olde Mill Inn for only one night but this was our second stay at the Inn and it was wonderful! Beautiful little town and our host were so helpful and friendly. We were traveling for funeral so it was not an ideal situation but the staff at the Inn was helpful and kind and the our stay in the Pinnacle Room was quiet and relaxing with a great breakfast to get us going the next morning. We will defiantly return for a longer stay soon. Thank you to the staff for all your help. We really appreciated it.

Great place for quiet weekend

5 on August 28, 2017

What a nice place to spend a quiet weekend in Cumberland Gap. The room and bath were just as we expected when staying in an old mill- comfortable and quaint. The owner was there on Friday when we arrived and she was super nice and welcoming. The breakfast both mornings was plentiful and delicious. If you like a quiet B&B get-a-way, this is a great choice!

Spent a few days celebrating birthdays with my brother and hiking the various trails. Breakfasts were great except for one day when it was only average. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Beds are very comfortable. Would highly recommend this BandB.

D and J 40th anniversary!

We loved our Suite. The only thing I recommend is to make sure the light bulbs are all replaced when out. There is a step down to the suite and it is hard to see with no light. Could be a potential problem. Otherwise, the stay was quiet, comfortable, relaxing. The breakfast was great.
