The Tolley House Bed and Breakfast is one of historic Lynchburg’s oldest antebellum homes. Its first owner, Lem Motlow, was Jack Daniel’s hardworking nephew who he turned the reigns of the Distillery over to in 1907. Lem Motlow is credited with bringing the Distillery back to this quaint town of Lynchburg, Tennessee following prohibition.

The second owner of this home was Lem Motlow’s daughter, Lily Motlow Tolley, and her husband John Tolley, who many locals believe to have been the second master distiller. This home was then deeded to their son Lem Tolley, the 5th master distiller for Jack Daniel’s Distillery. Both Tolley men took great pride in the whiskey they made and the home they kept. It is this great tradition of pride and excellence we continue to uphold.

The Tolley House is only one mile from Lynchburg’s town square, where guests can visit shops, tour Jack Daniel’s, have a bite to eat and take in the beauty of the historic town.

Back at the house, enjoy a peaceful setting for relaxing and enjoying a delicious country breakfast prepared fresh every morning. Guests can choose either Miss Ethel’s room or Mr. Lem’s room, both of which have private baths and luxurious pillow top mattresses with featherbeds.

The house also features a gorgeous parlor and eloquent front porch where guests can enjoy the day in a cozy rocking chair.

“A nice break from all the hotels. When you visit Lynchburg put this Bed and Breakfast on your list if you stay over night. It is conveniently located only a mile from the Jack Daniels distillery. Vicky and Lindsay took excellent care of our accommodations and outstanding breakfast. This place has lots of historical ties to both the town and the Jack Daniels story. Spend some time reading the books in information that is available in the parlor area. Staying here made our visit to this town quite memorable.” – SF, Trip Advisor
