Wonderful weekend getaway

My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Cumberland Gap. The breakfast served at the Inn was fantastic, just the fuel we needed before a day of hiking. The room was comfortable and provided an amazing view of the mountain.

Cumberland Gap was a pleasant, quite little town and we enjoyed the weekend there. The Olde Mill Inn Bed & Breakfast staff were friendly and helpful. Nice breakfast. We were disappointed that the mill wasn't running while we were there. That was the reason we had picked the room that we did because of the description of listening to the water at night. But, it may not have been running due to low water levels in the stream. Overall, we enjoyed our visit. Thank you.

We wanted a quaint quiet place to stay while we visited the Cumberland Gap and surrounding area. Loved it. Our hosts were helpful on getting us to the places we wanted to see. Our room was cozy and quiet with a state of the television and very nice and comfortable bed.

great time

A Charming Step Back in Time

Quaint inn in a speck of a town. If authentic historical houses are your thing, this is a great option. A crazy quilt of stairs, up then down, led to my spacious Daniel Boone room. But quality linens, delicious-smelling organic toiletries, and Direct TV were decidedly modern. And the massive home cooked breakfast meant I didn't need to eat again until dinner. I loved my stay here.

I would stay here again!
