This Chautauqua community dates from the 1880's with magnificent homes and public facilities. There are some year-round residents but most come for the 8 week season in the summer. That adds another 1,000 charming people to the mountain community. Many of the beautiful homes have been in the same family for several generations. The Assembly is open year-round for tourist...

Just returned from a trip through the assembly. My husband went as a child for several years. We stayed at the Edgeworth Inn and had a lovely time. Enjoyed the beautiful leaf color. Hope to return again soon.

It's simply beautiful! Hilly and wooded with surprisingly cooler temps than down the mountain. We stayed at a bed and breakfast but most of the Assembly is private homes with lovely porches decorated with twinkling lights. There are foot paths throughout the community and they are bridged, due to the hills, and it just adds to the uniqueness and charm.... More

I am a long time visitor of MSSA. My grandfather began to go when he was a child and has passed the love of the mountain down through the generations. I now own a house as of this year there. I love it. It's a special beautiful place that anyone who goes falls in love with. Every single person I've... More

Across the street from the Monteagle Inn. If you like to walk off the great breakfast, the location can't be beat and the homes and troll bridge make it a fun time...I imagine it is really a very active community in the Summer

My friend and I chose this place because we wanted somewhere 1/2 way between Atlanta and Jackson, Tn. We chose the Edgeworth over the Monteagle Inn because the Edgeworth seemed more cozy. I had no knowledge about the Monteagle Sunday School Assembly and my first reaction was, "What in the world is this place?" I felt like I had stepped... More

MSSA was founded in 1882. It is a little slice of peace. Families come to stay (a week, a month, a season) in rented cottages. You participate in scheduled activities(kids camps, adult lectures, etc.) as well as free time for swimming, tennis, walks, hiking. The pace is slow; the community friendly; your time enjoyable. We really appreciated our stay and... More

FYI, I am a cottage owner at the MSSA, and motorcycles (as well as RV's, which couldn't fit on the roads) aren't allowed in the grounds--which is probably why the old guy waved you down. You should have parked and walked--you would have been welcome! It is a quiet, friendly community with a lovely bed and breakfast, as well as... More

Enticed by multiple Monteagle reviews appearing in the Tennessee Magazine, the Tennessean newspaper, et al, my wife and I took a motorcycle trip to Monteagle for a three day adventure. In general, we enjoyed ourselves, especially hiking the Fiery Gizzard trail in Tracy City. However, our attempt to see the Sunday School Assembly (as beckoned by each of the afore-mentioned... More

Monteagle Sunday School Assembly is the most peaceful, restful and intellectually challenging place that I have visited. During the eight week "Season", the Chatauqua atmostphere infuses the platform (program). It is a welcoming, friendly, lovely spot...far removed from the business of daily life. Very highly recommended to anyone seeking a refined, restrained, restful spot in which to "re-group".
