We have stayed at The Garden Inn on other occasions and are always pleased. Everything is spotless and up to date. Breakfast is always delicious and host and hostess are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely stay here again.

We needed a weekend away from the stress of our jobs and every day life, and we found the perfect spot. The Garden Inn is in such a peaceful and quiet place. The grounds are lovely and well-kept. The view from the back side rooms, deck and dining room are beautiful. The rooms and facilities are immaculate. The staff is...

Our short stay was a joy. Rooms are clean & elegantly furnished. Views from room, back deck, and dining area are spectacular. Grounds and gardens are beautiful. Owner prepared a gourmet breakfast with quiche & raspberry sauce taking into consideration the dietary needs of the guests. Owner provided information & suggestions on nearby attractions and restaurants. It is obvious that...

Lovely grounds and the view from the rooms is stunning. Very clean. Excellent breakfast. Made a special breakfast for my young, picky eater. The owners are very helpful and know the area. Have been here twice and both times went to good restaurants they recommended. They even helped us out with a local mechanic when we had car trouble. Not...

I have been here twice, and it was a great experience both times. Facilities are clean and fresh. Owners are friendly and usually flexible on requests. Food is delicious! This is the perfect spot to disappear for peace and quiet. (There isn't much in town, so don't expect to be entertained.) There is lots of hiking, on and off the...

The inn was spotlessly clean and nice. The hosts were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was delicious. My only somewhat negative remark is that we did not get an evening dessert that others talked about. Other than that,everything was very nice. I would highly recommend this place.

Very clean and quiet. Nice hosts who made us feel welcome. This charming inn offers a dramatic view of the Cumberland Plateau and is convenient to I-40. Our bath was generously sized with tub and separate shower. We were served an excellent breakfast of fresh fruit, eggs, sausage links and French toast with homemade blackberry sauce. The flourless homemade chocolate...

We stayed at Garden Inn for several nights for our anniversary. It was conveniently located to the various places we wanted to visit during our trip. We had previously been to Bee Rock to look at the amazing view over the bluff and had always admired the inn, and we were so glad to finally have an opportunity to stay...

My husband chose this B&B for us while traveling in East Tennessee. Not only were we pleasantly surprised with its proximity to the interstate, but also with the beautiful natural setting of Bee Rock. Other reviewers seem to think that only retirees frequent The Garden Inn. Contrary to that belief is the fact that we are not retired and neither...
