“Not my favorite B&B but very nice.”
Reviewed 19 July 2008

The Garden Inn is one of the most modern B&B's I've stayed in. It was extremely clean, not a speck of dust anywhere. Lovely beds with super pillows. Fresh, downy towels and plenty of them. The breakfast was excellent. Sometimes, B&B's seem to shirk on the breakfast when that is supposed to be one of the delights of the B&B experience. The breakfast servers were extremely attentive to our every need, maybe TOO attentive! We could hardly take a bite for them asking 10 times if we wanted more coffee.
The room was on the small side. The views are nice. I think that perhaps the room rates are stretching it a little for what you get. I usually don't pay more than $100 for a room in a B&B and have had lovely rooms.
The inn is very restful and quiet. It would be nice to have more to do here. There is a large room downstairs with a big screen TV but uncomfortable little wicker chairs to sit in. Not very inviting. No board games. A ping-pong table or pool table would fit there nicely and give more options for guests.
All in all, very nice.

I stayed here for two nights June 27 and loved it. I am extremely particular and this property is immaculate. The view from the back deck is incredible and the food is wonderful. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable and exceptionally clean. The service and hospitality is wonderful.
I am so happy to have found this place so I never have to stay in a motel in Crossville or Cookville again as I need to visit this area a couple of times every summer. If you want caviar and pure linen sheets, keep driving, I'm sure you will find that eventually for about $500.00 a night somewhere. I'll be at the Garden Inn where the price is right!

Our visit to The Garden Inn in Monterey, Tennessee was one we truely enjoyed. The Inn in beautifully located overlooking a mountain ridge of trees and lovely rock formations. The view is visible from many rooms. The Inn was very clean and this the standard they maintain daily. The breakfast was above the normal B&B standards. The chef really knows how to combine good ingredients to make a meal worth remembering. We really enjoyed the Apple-Cinnamon Quiche for breakfast. The Cherry-Blackberry Pie served for dessert, was a big hit with us, but we were offered a choice of 3 desserts each evening, all sounded wonderful.
The Inn is beautiful and well decorated, all rooms having lovely cherry or walnut furniture.
The staff was very nice and pleasant, making for a wonderful chance to chat and find out more about the area.
Can't say enough about a possitive experience for us on this trip. We will come back to take a break from the stress of daily life. The Inn Keeper Mike and Mirtha were a delight to get to know.
