Beautifully located in the woodland with spectacular views across the valley. We even saw a Hummingbird whilst eating breakfast.

Who Knew??!!!

Who knew such a jewel was so close to home??!!! We have stressful jobs and decided to get away for just a night. We are so thankful we found this great little place. It is an outstanding place to go and we loved every aspect of it, especially Mike's little tidbits of information. I would have given it five stars on all but it wouldn't let me. It is one of the cleanest places I have ever stayed. I would highly recommend it to anyone, especially small groups and/or for weddings.

Beautiful Place

Absolutely a terrific place to get away to, the staff and owners took time to talk with us and make us feel welcome and let us know they were there for us no matter what we needed. The grounds were stunningly beautiful as was the view from the cliff tops that surround the house making for breathtaking pictures. The breakfast was beyond great and staff was very willing to make exceptions to the planned menu if asked which was also nice. We would highly recommend that anyone looking to get away try The Garden Inn.

I brought my mother for a quiet relaxing weekend. The views were breathtaking and the inn itself was very bright, clean, warm and welcoming. I chose this B&B because it was very close to Crossville with easy access to the intrastate so we could get to the Cumberland County Playhouse without much hassle. There is a easy walk out to the bluff/overlook from the B&B as well. Excellent weekend.

Our second stay - equally wonderful!

This was our second stay and it was a lovely and relaxing experience. Mike is always helpful with recommendations on places to eat. The breakfasts at the Inn are truly amazing! You can't beat the setting and the service.

PERFECT Getaway!

This was our first foray into the whole B&B experience and it won't be our last! Everything about The Garden Inn was fantastic! Mike was so helpful with his knowledge of the area and where to go and explore and places to eat. The Garden Inn, itself, was so nice and clean. Such a peaceful and stunning location too. Would be the perfect fall getaway with all of the colors changing.

A peaceful and quiet place to stay.

We stayed at Garden Inn on a Sunday night and had a very pleasant stay. The first thing that struck me (I am a man) was how impeccably clean everything was. Our room was very nice and peaceful and offered a great quiet place to get some rest, followed by a delicious breakfast in a very relaxed atmosphere. The Garden Inn is surrounded by nature, for those of you who can appreciate that sort of thing. There are a few walking trails that end in beautiful views off of rock bluffs and water flowing in a small stream right beneath the house and into a fish pond below the outside deck area which is left to be cared for by nature itself. Mike and Mirtha are very gracious hosts. I would highly recommend the Garden Inn for a relaxing and peaceful place to stay.

Absolutely Superb!

The innkeepers are terrific, extremely accommodating and gracious.The breakfasts are 5 star be it the gourmet or country style with quality ingredients and excellent presentation as well as the quantity and variety. The rooms are immaculate, tastefully decorated, not cutesy, rather extremely tasteful. Loved the special chocolate mint sticks in the room. Magnificent scenery and grounds. Incredible! Other B and Bs pale in comparison. A true gem, don't miss it! Diana W Perrussel
