Nice views comfortable rooms

Scenic view is main selling feature of this inn. Some improvements could be made with presentation to guests such as potted flowers scented candles in main areas. Owner Mike tries to accommodate guests but inn is definitely lacking feminine touch.

Great view! Everything was just wonderful. Will tell all my friends and family about The Garden Inn and recommend staying at this great place with a great view.

Great place to stay for anniversary

I treated my wife (us) to a B&B for our anniversary and I am glad we went to Garden Inn. Very clean and comfortable. Mike was a great host to us and we had an enjoyable time talking with him - he is very personable and ready to help us make reservations, find good places to eat, visit local attractions, or just leave us be. Highly recommend.

This B&B looks out over a bluff. Great for leaf peeping. The rooms are immaculately clean. The food very tasty. This innkeeper allowed for us to change her schedule a little providing us breakfast after check-out. A lovely stay.

Fell in love with this B&B

This was my first encounter with a stay in the mountains of Tennessee. And it was wonderful. Lovely lovely location. Beds are super comfortable and the breakfasts superb. The hospitality was amazing. Last but not least the view was breath taking. I highly recommend.

The Mountain Air.

The Mountain Air room was great. The views were outstanding and the cross wind so nice. Can't wait for our next visit. SLA
