“Another Perfect Escape”
Reviewed 6 July 2012

We just returned home from another perfect escape at Monteagle Inn. We have stayed at the Inn many times and always feel renewed after our visits here. The gardens, patio, and porch are wonderful places to relax, read, chat, or even nap enjoying the mountain breeze. Yes, there is a breeze on the mountain this summer while other parts of TN are sweltering. The beautiful gathering room inside offers another option for total escapism with a vast selection of books and magazines and lovely pieces of art to admire. This trip we ate our delicious breakfast on the patio surrounded by the gorgeous cobalt blue containers filled with an abundance of colorful blooms. The gracious and welcoming owners and staff consistently go out of their way to ensure that our stay is a top notch experience. We always leave wishing we could have stayed a bit longer. Thank you Monteagle Inn friends for providing us with another much needed and enjoyable escape to your beautiful and tranquil oasis. We're already looking forward to our next visit.

We decided to splurge for a one-night getaway from our teenagers. The Monteagle Inn is a nice Inn/B&B. The gentleman who greeted us (Mark?) was very cordial and provided us with an indoor and outdoor tour of the premises. The community living room was quite large with four distinct, large sitting areas, and was very comfortable and relaxing. Our room and all of the Inn's facilities were clean and well-kept. Our room (Foster Falls, Room #1) was nice, of adequate size, and had a larger than usual bathroom. Temperature control worked perfectly during the unusual heat wave we were experiencing this summer. The innkeepers seem to have an affinity for Italy and for wine, as there were an abundance of Italian paintings throughout the inn, and they had a very extensive wine list.

Breakfast was okay, but nothing to write home about. I guess you would call it a gourmet breakfast, but then again I am a standard "bacon, eggs & biscuits" kind of guy, so you need to consider the source when evaluating my review. The Inn had a good variety of breakfast items (cereals, oatmeal, bagels, toast, muffins, fresh fruit, etc...), and they served frittatas as the main breakfast item. However, after asking for the mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, and onions to be left off, I was basically left with a cheese omelette. Again, I'm a bacon & eggs kind of guy.

The only other two things that took away from a perfect experience were pillows that were too thin, and some outside road noise through the night. We were able to stack two pillows in an attempt to make for a thicker pillow, but it still left us wanting. The Inn sits beside a major highway, so there were a handful of times through the night when truck noise was heard, and there is an adjacent market where you could hear car doors and related noise into the evening.

Monteagle Inn is a little more upscale and "frou-frou" than a redneck like me is accustomed to, but overall, it was a relaxing evening and morning away from our teenagers, which was the goal in the first place.

We had a dinner for 65 to 70 people at the Monteagle Inn last Thursday evening. It was a perfect setting, with the front porch, dining room, and back courtyard flowing one into the other. Lee and Jim Harmon are very gracious and took care of every detail. The Inn is charming and welcoming, just as their website promises. The food was delicious, well-suited for this event, and plentiful. We relied on Lee's direction in many areas, and she and Jim handled all parts of this dinner with no conflicts that we could detect. The staff was extremely considerate and capable. The bar was set up in the courtyard, where there were dining tables as well. Each guest had a place to sit, with tables inside and out, which made for wonderful conversations. We could not have been more pleased with the Monteagle Inn and I would recommend it for any event. My son and daughter-in-law also spent a night there and truly enjoyed their comfortable, beautiful room and an omelette breakfast on Sunday morning. We look forward to staying there again when in the area.

the monteagle nn was so comfortable and spotlessly clean!! Well thought out for your creature comforts. The managment goes out of its way to accommodate even your smallest needs....there is an ironing station for last minute touch ups and always coffee, tea and snacks for mid afternoon or late night munchies would highly recommend for my family and friends

Room Tip: there are rooms available with more than one bed if traveling with children or nanny etc

We chose this inn for a two day stay on our little get a way trip and were delighted. The access to Suwanee, Monteagle Assembly, and hiking we're perfect. Staff were all welcoming an friendly. Went out of their way to help. Loved the carefully cared for grounds and gardens. Loved the porches and various sitting nooks. Just a relaxing place to be.

Yes, the location is not perfect but don't be put off as the attributes of the inn and grounds overwhelm any possible problems from the highway.

We would seek out and stay here again!

Traveling east on I-24 we saw a billboard ad for the Monteagle Inn. Stopped just to see if we would want to risk staying at this B&B. We stayed and we both agree this was one of our best decisions. Every aspect of the stay was better than expected, from the walk through the garden, sitting in the gazebo, the exceptional hospitatility, wonderful room, excellent food (especially the cheese and wine tray in our room). The art work displayed is more than one could ever think possible at any B&B
