Great place for quiet weekend

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.

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.

Return Trip to Old Mill

4.4 on July 14, 2017

Return visit to the Old Mill with my grandson. Stay was pleasant and grandson enjoyed the hewn lumber bunk bed in the Daniel Boone Suite. Hosts Amy and Max extremely genial and very attentive to grandson's "needs". Breakfast still a nice experience with interaction with other guests from diverse backgrounds.

Best Rustic B&B

Breakfast is outstanding! Amy is charming and extremely helpful - a wealth of local knowledge. Amy and Max make a great team!

This was my first "only me" vacation and I couldn't have picked a better B&B to start with. They showed the utmost compassion when I had found a stray dog on a Sunday (with shelters and vets being closed) in letting him stay the very rainy night with me until the next morning where he was taken to one. The staff is extremely friendly and the breakfast was AMAZING! I can't say enough great things about this establishment and will definitely be returning to the area in the future based solely on this B&B. :)

Nice Stay

3.8 on April 30, 2017

Quaint, quiet, cozy. Located near Cumberland Gap National Park and 2 larger towns, this was a good location for several activities. The town was peaceful and very walkable. The included breakfast was delicious and the rooms were comfortable. We would definitely stay again.
