This is a gem of a place, Mike and Mirtha are very kind and helpful. They keep the place looking great, the rooms are well-kept and very clean. Breakfast is delicious and the view is jaw-droppingly wonderful! Our room was the Mountain Air, which as the name suggests, has a beautiful view from the second floor. It was quiet and...

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...

We could have sat on the bluff looking out all day. Would have been lovely to have a picnic lunch! Mike was most hospitable during our stay. Thanks! We met new friends while we were there and enjoyed the conversations.

The inn is built literally on the edge of a rock bluff overlong the Cumberland Plateau. Several of the rooms on the 2nd floor offer great views. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The owner Mike tries to accommodate guest preferences and comfort. The interior of the inn is laid out nice. Cons: Exterior structures on property (gazebo , sitting...

Wonderful getaway! I have a dairy allergy and indicated that on my reservation. Just to be prepared, brought my own food for breakfast. Mike was so accommodating and prepared a delicious dairy free breakfast! Even went as far as mixing from scratch, pancake batter, omelet with spinach and bacon. Needless to say I was blown away and quite tasty. The...

We spent two nights at The Garden Inn at Bee Rock. The owner is a lovely lady who is very concerned about her guests feeling comfortable. The location of the building is a show for itself, and the homemade-from scratch breakfast can only be recommended. After having slept at Hotel chains during our TN trip, we were happy to find...

We booked a weekend anniversary get away at the Inn. It is a beautiful place and clean as a pin as I have seen described here. Unfortunately we were booked there with a large, unruly group who drank, swore, fussed, and took up nearly every space. The owners were not well able to look after a large group AND us....

We traveled across Tenessee to a wedding near Memphis and on our slow trip home to Pennsylvania we spent a couple of nights at this B&B and were so pleased. The owner is delightful...the home is clean, comfortable and there is a serenity about this place that calms the soul. A short hike to the overlook was breathtaking and the...

This B&B looks out over a bluff. Great for leaf peeping. The innkeepers are hospitable. The food is tasty. The rooms are immaculately clean. The innkeeper was very flexible with our schedule providing us breakfast after checkout. Thanks so much Murta!
