Recently a friend (Cary Ledford) and I (Gerald LeBlanc) took a trip to Tennessee and the Ledford Mill was one of the places we planned on staying but ended up being a destination. We thought the "Loft Room" was so comfortable being furnished with antiques, and we are planning a return trip to the mill for several days our next time. We hope to get the loft room again. John & Mildred Spear were wonderful and "Tom" the cat was a delight as well. John explained all aspects of the mill to us and showed us around the whole mill and Mildred prepared us a truly dleicious country breakfast the following morning. We shared coffee with some other guests that was there on a second or third trip themselves.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Voted "most rustic" B&B in North America. 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 complete with kitchenette and a balcony view of the woods, creek and falls. Early 1900's furnishings, many for sale, are highlighted within the Mill. Friendly, resident cat welcomes guests. Located in a quiet country setting but close to many local restaurants and attractions including Jack Daniel's Distillery. Advanced reservations recommended. ... more less
