The historic Sylvan Falls Mill, located in the scenic mountains of north east Georgia, is celebrating its 177th 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 operating 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.
