“Wonderful!”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

The Monteagle Inn was a perfect place to stay after a long day visiting Sewanee. It was so clean and so comfortable! Great glass of wine in the evening followed by an absolutely delicious breakfast in the morning. Most important of all, the staff and the owners were incredibly nice and very welcoming. As a very picky person, this was truly a wonderful place to stay.

Thank you for being at our Inn. We are pleased that you enjoyed your mountain gourmet breakfast. It became so popular, we have open our breakfast up to the community, not just our guest. Please come by for a glass of wine any time you are in the area! Warm Regards, Lee and Jim

My husband and I stayed here for a romantic getaway one weekend in March. I didn't expect much. I had bought a groupon awhile back and when it came up on the calendar, we packed up without remembering the details of what I'd signed us up for.

When we arrived, they asked if we would prefer our fruit, cheese and wine plate or our strawberries and champagne. Not thinking much about it, we ordered the cheese plate which they promptly brought to our room. Let me tell you...it was the best fruit and cheese I have ever had in my life. My husband and I still have fruit and cheese dates at home trying to relive that awesome spread. Sooo delicious.

The rooms are modest, but cozy. However, downstairs there are some great rooms to lounge with more space. They have a great large community room where there are TVs (my husband had to get his college basketball in) and a nice fireplace.

Also, there are always tea and coffee available. And sometimes some delicious cookies.

In the morning, the breakfast is outstanding. The staff is so kind and generous. They make it their pleasure to serve you, which feels really nice and puts your mind and spirit at ease, especially if you need a break from life's stressors.

Definitely stay here. It's worth the price. :)

My husband and I stayed at the Monteagle Inn 12 years ago and talked of going back ever since then but couldn't seem to get back until last weekend. We celebrated our 20th anniversary with dear friends who are celebrating their 10th and we were all happy with our experience. The rooms are charmingly comfortable, the food is plentiful and delicious and the service is impeccable. Jim recommended a nearby place for lunch that we revisited on day 2 - the food was that good! We enjoyed hiking and picking up yummy homegrown vegetables at the flea market. The Monteagle Inn is a worthy destination in itself but the added benefit of great food, a local winery, shopping and scenery topped off our anniversary celebration. P.S. The champagne and chocolate covered strawberries are wonderful!

TOTALLY AWESOME. My family and I stayed here for a wedding in late June 2013. the property is beautiful. the rooms are very comfortable and the grounds are well kept with flowers and a herb garden. the food is very good. The owners and staff are first class and very accommodating. there are hammocks to relax in and a pouch full of comfortable chairs to chill out in. Scenery and hiking trails nearby as well as University of the South which is well worth a visit with its beautiful church and massive cross overlooking the valley. I would go back again. thanks a million to Jim, his wife and their entire staff for being so gracious.

This was surprisingly great place to stay. The rooms all had their own bathrooms (its a B&B) and the beds were very comfortable. The location was good and had some good walking areas around the facility. The breakfast and lunches were delicious and the staff was extremely polite and accommodating. Highly recommend this as a B&B and would definitely go back.

My husband and I spent the night at the Inn last week when we were in the Nashville area for vacation. It's about a 90 minute drive from Nashville, and we chose Monteagle because we wanted to do some hiking in the area. We had a wonderful time! The Inn and grounds are very nice, and the staff really went out of their way to make sure we had a great time. They could not have been more accommodating. Everything about our stay was above and beyond our expectations, from the property to the breakfast. After spending the rest of the week in a sub-par hotel in Nashville, we wished we had spent more time at Monteagle! Definitely worth the trip.
