My husband and I spent 3 lovely days and nights at the Garden Inn. The inn is beautiful and clean, the food was delicious and the staff were friendly and attentive. We look forward to visiting again.

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

Paradise on the Plateau

4.4 on August 17, 2015

Surroundings are very quiet. View from the rooms overlooking the gorge below is outstanding. Inside was very warm and cozy. Flower theme throughout is very restful. Rooms met expectations. Could be rated higher if television was more updated from the 14" box and direct TV channel listing was more extensive. Hosts are very nice people.

Outstanding experience. Highly recommend this B&B. We will return. Convenient alternative to hotels in the area. Very convenient to Interstate 40.

The other reviews are right! This is a great place!

Our room was very recently updated. Very well taken care of. Very clean. The Breakfasts were FANTASTIC! Spoiler alert: First class egg soufflé, French Toast, Quiche, etc. Very courteous and prompt service. Not to mentioned the beautiful views, trails, and easy freeway access from I-40. Very well done.

Always A Peaceful Place to Visit

You need a place to get away and have some peace? Quiet? Great food? This is the place. Breakfast and the coffee is always the best. It is not far from Nashville but you feel as if you really got away. Go check it out.

My daughters enjoyed a special weekend together at the Garden Inn. The room was immaculate and the service was impeccable. The atmosphere is very relaxing. We could not ask for more.
