“Delightful! A little jewel in Tennessee”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2010

I often stay in B&Bs and this is one of the best. Jim, the owner, is on top of every detail down to the home baked cookies available in the middle of the night. The public areas are gorgeous and filled with antiques and art. The rooms are elegantly decorated with big comfy beds, ceiling fans, ac, and views overlooking the beautiful garden.The staff is friendly and attentive and the breakfast is delicious and plentiful. I will definitely stay here again.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2010

Visited the Monteagle Inn for one night with my daughter who isi nterested in attending the University of the South. The room was delightful, very spacious and clean and the pillows and bed linens were nice. We arrived late and the Innkeeper had our keys on the door -- she even came back to make sure we got in ok and pointed us in the right direction for dinner. The next morning we had to leave early for a campus tour and thought we would not be able to get breakfast. There was a friendly person in the kitchen who was happy to cook us an egg and anything else we wanted. It is a bit pricey but it was worth it to be in a clean, safe place where the people care about your experience.

My husband and I recently stayed at the Monteagle Inn while dropping our son off at The University of the South. I can report a 100% on everything from friendliness, food rating, ambience and quality of our room.! We had a wonderful time! While the Inn is very small, the staff is not intrusive but will attend to the simpliest tasks if asked! We were able to secure a reservation at the popular High Point restaurant because of their relationship with the Inn. We hope to stay again many times over the next four years and beyond!

Don't agree with all the glow here. For the price the setting is not great, a lot of ugly development adjacent to the Inn. The building doesn't feel historic. The Inn hosted a local "party" on the night of our stay which was a new one for me. The door to the room didn't close properly and needed some simple maintenance. Gave me a 50$ discount on my next stay for listening to the party goers, which would still be too expensive. Look elsewhere.

MonteagleInnAdvisor, owner at Monteagle Inn & Retreat Center, responded to this review, 14 April 2009
Monteagle Inn appreciates this review and the issues pointed out to us. Due to this review, we have repaired the door so that it closes properly for our guests. We have also reviewed our policy regarding functions when we have guests not affiliated with the function.
The function did go 30 minuites past the scheduled cut-off of 8pm, and for this we appologize and for the inconvenience we caused you.
We are excited about the new CVS being built a block down Main Street as well as the new bank going in across the street from us. We do hope that you will like these improvements to our community which are replacing outdated facilities.
We do hope that you will reconsider and return to Monteagle Inn and use the gift certificate which we gave you for your inconvience last time. Jim Harmon, Proprietor

We just found the perfect getaway!! My Husband and I just had the most wonderful weekend at the Monteagle Inn. We felt at "home" and yet pampered and very well taken care of by the staff. The room was just beautiful as well as the den downstairs. We simply could not have had a more wonderful weekend. Go!!

What a wonderful experience! The Inn is spectacular and the staff really makes you feel at home. Lots of places to to read, either inside in the spacious living room or outside on the front porch. There is plenty of room for privacy even when you are sharing the porch with other guest.

Breakfast is really a treat. The staff is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Recommended great restaurants and places to hike.

The rooms are immaculate. Wonderful linens. Very cozy.

I will definitely be back, soon.

  • Liked — The room was immaculate and very cozy.
  • Disliked — I found it most enjoyable, nothing to not like!
