Superb in every way.

5 on August 06, 2013

My wife and I spent 2 nights at Tara last October to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary. We could not have been more pleased. We felt like we were taking a step back in time. Our hosts were gracious. The food was outstanding. It was superb in every way.


Our Mother/Daughter Sanctuary

5 on October 02, 2012

My mom and I have visited Tara twice, and we have fallen in love with this Inn. The staff is polite, personable, and sweet. The rooms are absolutely gorgeous. The Inn is overall beautiful and the food is excellent. My mom and I are trying to visit Tara Inn 3-to-4 times per year. We have stayed in The Lilac Room and Fiddle Dee Dee, and they are both feminine, frilly, beautiful, and perfect for a mother/daughter duo. Can't wait for our next stay!


Thirteenth stay and still lucky

5 on October 19, 2011

This, my 13th stay at Tara, did not disappoint and actually featured even better cuisine, if that is possible. The food here has always been superb but had some of the best courses ever at Ashley's this time. The fine dining room is worth the extra price if you enjoy that sort of experience. Diane the server the chef Katie (I think that is here name) exceeded our expectations to a level I cannot describe. Had some appetizers that were some of the best items I have ever eaten. The Eggs Benedict were among the best ever also and I am an old lady who has eaten them around the world. Stonewalls featured huge portions for dinner on our other night. I always recommend Tara for the ambiance and service. This time I give an extra couple stars for the cuisine. If you want room suggestions, just ask Joan at the front desk if you need assistance. She can describe everything to suit your needs.


True Southern Hospitality and Romantic Getaway!!!!

5 on October 02, 2011

My husband and I have stayed at Tara numerous times and each time was so memorable. The staff, accomodations and dining was spectacular. We pick a different room each time and have never been dissappointed. Everyone there made us feel so welcome and special. We also stayed near the holidays and it was decorated beautifully. It is truly a remarkable and romantic getaway that would please anyone! J. and T.C.


Will definitely return!

We spent one night at Tara in Rhett's room. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, and the bed was very comfortable. The only inconvenience was the tiny shower. We ate at Stonewall's Tavern, which had a charming and intimate atmosphere despite being located in the basement. The food was great. We ate brunch the next morning in the Old South dining room. There was a surprisingly large selection of food, and again everything was excellent. I can't wait to go back!
