Surrounded by Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, The Olde Mill Inn Bed & Breakfast, built in the late 1800s (with some parts using original 1700s, is full of history and charm. The seven guest rooms are decorated in the style of that era, but have the modern amenities that you expect, such as King or Queen comfortable beds, ensuite bathrooms with Pharmacopia bath products, cable television, and complimentary wi-fi. Each morning you will enjoy a full American breakfast such as blueberry pancakes, stuffed croissants or other delicious offerings. Freshly-ground coffee, teas and a variety of juices are also provided. Our goal is to have you feel full and ready to enjoy the day as you explore the national park and its 85 miles of hiking trails, or stroll the quaint town of Cumberland Gap with its antique and art shops. When you are ready to just sit down and enjoy good food and beautiful surroundings, you can walk to several great restaurants in town. Sit out by the creek, listen to the water babble over the stones and watch the Fitz water wheel turn... or enjoy a hike right out the front door. Drive up to the Pinnacle overlook to get a view of KY, VA and TN - on a clear day, you can even see the Smoky Mountains... take a hike up to the Tri-State Peak... or explore the Gap Cave on a ranger-guided tour. Come stay, relax and do as much or as little as you like. The fresh air, slower lifestyle and natural surroundings are the ingredients for a perfect getaway.

Very nice, clean, accommodating lodging in a secluded location. We enjoyed the local pub, hiking trails, and quiet. The room was very clean with an excellent breakfast - would recommend this to a friend!

The Old Mill House is very historic in the cute sleepy town of Cumberland Gap. Carol and Amy were very accomodating with our needs. Breakfast was excellent, tasted great and took into account our preferences.

This is one of the best B&B's we have ever experienced! Cumberland Gap, TN is a cute, charming little town, and The Olde Mill Inn was the best part of the trip. The breakfasts were delicious and everyone on staff is so nice and went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. The Cabin is very cozy with a beautiful, comfy king-size sleigh bed and whirlpool tub. We cannot wait to come back!

Great place to stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The assistance & service from Amy to help us with visiting the area was beyond amazing! Her recommendations for dinner & places to visit were very helpful. The room & inn were spotlessly clean & comfortably furnished & decorated. The area is beautiful with a relaxing pace, but much to see. We will stay here again!

We were looking for a quiet getaway in the mountains, and The Olde Mill is perfect! It felt so cozy and comfortable, and we were treated like we were staying right in a home, complete with breakfast and very hospitable staff. We stayed in the Pinnacle room, which has an amazing view of The Pinnacle itself! We will definitely be staying again and recommending to all of our friends! The only selection that I can't truly review was on-site dining because we didn't eat the breakfast (headed out early), but we were offered to-go plates and coffee when we left (hence the five stars, really sweet gesture), and I am SURE that it's amazing!

cozy and comfortable

The Mill was unique and very well done. The bed was very comfortable. We were asked several times if we needed anything. I am diabetic and they made sure I had a breakfast to accommodate my diet. We would cone back.

Fabulous weekend

Stayed here with my sister for a sister's weekend. Beautiful room, super comfortable bed, and breakfasts were delicious. Got the strawberries dipped in chocolate - SO well worth it! Lots of great hiking nearby. Would definitely stay again.
