Sylvan Falls Mill Bed and Breakfast

Sylvan Falls Mill Bed and Breakfast

This 170 year old operating mill has been renovated and converted to a charming, romantic Bed and Breakfast aptly named, Sylvan Falls Mill Bed and Breakfast. Enjoy breakfasts featuring delicious items made from grains and flours freshly ground at the mill.

The historic Sylvan Falls Mill, located in the scenic mountains of north east Georgia, is Sylvan Mills 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.

.Watch as the miller slowly grinds fresh flour and grits from the historic water-powered mill (Times of operation may vary). Visit our on-line store for more information.
