Sylvan Falls Mill
The Sylvan Falls Mill is an 1840 grist mill that still operates today supplying a variety of meals and flours ground from organically grown local grains. Products are ground between two granite stones encased in a Meadows Mill that is powered by a 27 foot Fitz Water Wheel. The water wheel is propelled by a sluice that diverts water from the falls. Products include white and yellow corn meal and grits, wheat, rye and spelt flour.
The historic Sylvan Falls Mill, located in the scenic mountains of north east Georgia, is celebrating its 175th year of operation. It is unique among other gristmills, in that it is located below a 100-foot cascading waterfall, and the mill is powered by a 27-foot water wheel, which is one of the largest in the United States.
Mike and Linda Johnson have operated the Bed and Breakfast since 2001 and have enjoyed sharing the natural beauty of the property with guests from all over the world. The four beautifully appointed guest rooms feature queen size beds, private baths, refrigerators, and WIFI. Breakfasts are served on the screen porch overlooking the falls and feature organic, local and seasonal fare.
