5 Years In A Row!

5 on August 19, 2018

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in 2014 and we loved it SO MUCH, we decided to come back every year on our anniversary. It is the ONLY time of the year, my husband and I completely unplug from absolutely everything. We adore Mandy, Steve and Gabby so much and their hospitality and welcoming home is something we look forward to all year long. Our 4 year anniversary is coming up and we are booked! If you need a place to rest, want to enjoy a nice home cooked southern meal and enjoy beautiful country scenery along the river, I would highly recommend visiting here!

Daughters wedding

5 on September 28, 2015

We had my daughters wedding at the lylewood inn may 28 2015, what can I say everything was perfect. Mandy is great she even sews up pant when someone splits them right before the wedding ha ha I just love it there you will not be disappointed if you choose this for your wedding venue

Cant wait to return!

5 on February 20, 2015

My husband and I was gifted this experience for Valentines day and it was amazing. There is nothing more that I can think of that would have made our stay better. The food was great, the owners were amazing people, and the home made goodies made for a great personal touch. We felt right at home but lovingly catered to. We stayed in the cooks cottage and will definitely return soon!

Valentine Special February 13, 2014

5 on February 16, 2014

We reserved the Lyle Room for the Valentine Special and was the dinner ever special as well as the room? Mandy goes all out to cook what ever you order off the menu with plentiful helpings and little extras that make it a feast to remember. We were fascinated by the history of this house and Mandy's effort to preserve the history while rehabilitating the structure. We thoroughly enjoyed listening to Mandy's stories as she made herself available for a house tour. We found our room comfortable and the king size bed with a good mattress. We highly recommend this inn and the experience of meeting Mandy. Van Burens

Weekend with friends

5 on October 06, 2013

A very beautiful setting for a weekend getaway or any occasion. Mandy treated us like family and took care of our every need. The rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The meals that Mandy prepared were excellent and brought back memories of my mothers cooking. I would strongly recommend Lylewood to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway or a special occasion.

Girlfriend weekend

5 on June 10, 2013

This was the most wonderful place! Mandy and Steve are awesome! We stayed in Zanie's Room. It was so nice and clean. The food was wonderful and we felt like we lived there. They treated us like we were family. If you are looking for a great place to stay in the country with an awesome view, this is it. You'll even get a concert at night from the crickets, frogs, birds, and God's other creatures.

The best B&B I have been to...

5 on May 24, 2013

I am a little late in writing this review as I stayed here in March. The two nights stay was amazing. We arrived and were the only guests for both nights. We enjoyed hearing about the history of the house and property. The room was beautiful and very comfortable. In the morning a wonderful breakfast was prepared. Mandy is an incredible owner and is very welcoming. We have already planned another trip in August, and I cannot wait!! Definitely recommend this B&B if you are in the area and need an affordable, comfortable place to stay.

A beautiful home!

4.8 on February 10, 2013

We were fortunate to stay at the Lylewood Inn. What a beautiful place to spend the night. The home with the history, food, rooms and wonderful owner made it a great night. Well worth the drive out to see it and stay the night!

You're an amazing lady

4.8 on October 17, 2012

Although travel weary when we arrived, you welcomed the five of us to your beautifully restored home of a bygone era. Your large array of prepared from scratch dishes that you served for both dinner and breakfast exceeded our expectations. How you can garden, can, bake and continually care for this early 1800's home and continually welcome new guests is amazing. I'd recommend this experience to anyone interested in stepping back in time, wanting genuine hospitality as you showed us, and wholesome food in a quiet, country setting. You greeted us like family. Thank you Mandy. Perhaps we'll come that way again some day.

Beautiful Escape

True Southern Hospitality !

5 on June 03, 2012

We love this B&B. It was our second time here. Lylewood Inn, a gracious southern home is relaxing. Mandy is very accommodating and a wonderful cook I love it here, its soooo peaceful. Enjoyed the new touches and improvements added since last time we stayed. Purchased Jams & Jelly to share with family and co-workers. Delicious! Excellent value, worth the drive off the main highway. Love the Peacock! Will be back God Willing

This B&B is absolutely the BEST! Mandy makes you feel right at home the moment you step foot inside. The historic home is full of character and the view is stunning. And the FOOD!!!!!! WOW!!! The food is out of this world! She is a great cook and hostess! This is a must and we are already planning our next trip!

Nice quiet place to relax!

4.6 on April 22, 2012

We stayed there is past weekend during a house hunting trip. Very nice family run place, made us feel welcome. I don't think you will ever find a more pet friendly place, would be a great place to bring the kids along too! Haven't had home style country cooking that good for years.

Valentine's Day Dinner

4.8 on February 14, 2012

As a surprise, my husband took me to dinner for Valentine's Day at the Lylewood Inn and it definitely was a wonderful surprise! Our hostess, Mandy and her daughter served us a delicious meal that exceeded anything I was expecting and we enjoyed hearing about the history of the house. We would definitely put this on our list of "must come again" places--thanks for a truly delightful experience! Lynn & Gene Watson, Clarksville TN

Wonderful Stay!

4.6 on November 29, 2011

My wife and I have stayed at many B&B's that were impressive for their architecture and polish, but run like a hotel / business. Lylewood Inn is a "home" that welcomes you with Southern charm and genuine hospitality. The owner lives on-site and invites you in as if you were a part of her family. Mandy not only prepared us a wonderful breakfast, she sat down and ate with us and shared the history of the home and the surrounding region. She was the best hostess we have ever had at a B&B. We look forward to returning on future trips to Northern Tennessee. Be sure to pick up one of her cookbooks when you stay or are just passing by!

Wonderful Time!

4.4 on November 27, 2011

Wes and I stayed on 11-11-11 after getting married. We had a wonderful time with Mandy and Steve. The food was excellent and the service was very personable. The Lyle Room was very comfy and the fire made it very cozy. Very interesting history and remote place. Thank you for making our special day extra special!

Awesome B&B

4.8 on November 02, 2011

Mandy is a hoot!

4.4 on August 31, 2011

Mandy and Steve are wonderful hosts. Don't be afraid to kick off your shoes and feel right at home. Don't miss the sunrise or sunset from the front porch. The food is delicious! Bring your appetite, you won't be disappointed. Make friends with Coco, Aggie and Mr P while you're there. It's a step back in time, an experience to be remembered and it is sure to be a blessing to you.

Great Place to Stay!

4.4 on June 24, 2011

Wonderful Stay

4.8 on March 13, 2011

We could not have asked for a better stay!! We celebrated a very special occasion with our family at the Lylewood and Mandy took such care in overseeing details and making sure our visit was perfect. She made us feel as though we were part of her own family and a forever friendship was formed. If you are looking for that "special" place give Mandy a call and she will take great care of you while you visit. Thanks Mandy and Steve and Coco for a perfect visit. Plan on seeing you again soon. Kirby, Kate and Becca

January 2011 Visit

5 on January 18, 2011

A true slice of heaven! What a fantastic week! The house was awesome and our room, "Sailors Rest" was too cool! Mandy was the greatest! She made us feel like family and we were very comfortable around her. Her helpers, Arlene and Steve were wonderful as well. Such a fun group of people to be around. We came and went as we pleased and Mandy presented a very relaxing and informal setting we enjoyed thoroughly. Mandy's meals, snacks and canned goods were to die for! I gained 4 pounds the week we were there! FANTASTIC FOOD! We found the history associated with the house very interesting and it added to the rich feeling of the soroundings. WE WILL BE BACK!

So lovely!

4.8 on August 07, 2010

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at Lylewood and simply fell in love with the place. This home is one of the most charming I have ever seen and the hostess of the home was so gracious and accomadating. You really feel like you're at home. We are already planning our next visit!

Just what I needed

4.0 on December 02, 2009

I was looking to escape from reality for a while and found this charming home on Bed and and decided to give it a try. This beautiful old home sits high on a hill overlooking the river and is WAY out in the country. It was the seclusion I needed and the hostess was ablsolutely wonderful. She was kind and became a friend to me over that weekend. The food she served was wonderful, and she would allow me to sit in the kitchen and chat with her as she prepared my breakfast. She is simply adorable, and I really enjoyed my stay.

peace & quiet

4.8 on September 16, 2009

Wonderful destination, very quiet, relaxing, outstanding service and superb country cooking from a special hostess, her personal touch can not be equalled!

Charming B&B

4.2 on July 31, 2009

I loved being able to stay at the B&B it was a great place to just go and get away from everything! It was very peaceful and quiet -- all you could here was the crickets chirping and the frogs going at night. There was never anyone there to bother us, no one knocking our door -- the inn keeper made us feel like family and like it was our own home. I would go back there in a heartbeat if I'm ever traveling in that area again!

Homey atmosphere

4.4 on August 12, 2008

Our stay was a gift and a great introduction to a jewel, practically in our back yard. We look forward to another opportunity to take out of town guests for good home cooking and a relaxing, family style stay.

Calmness & Comfort

4.6 on February 27, 2008

We want to express our thanks to our wonderful hostess. The food was excellent & abundant, the rooms quite & clean and the beds very comfortable! I totally enjoyed getting the back ground on the house. We will be back!!
