We stayed one night at the garden inn, on our way from Gatlinburg to St. Louis. We stayed in the mountain Air room, and just loved the view and the sunrise. The rooms and bathrooms were incredibly clean and comfortable, and We slept very, very well. The breakfast was delicious- fresh fruit salad, custard French toast with homemade blackberry sauce,...

I will definitely go back. Mike and staff made us feel like family -- the relatives that really want you to stay with them! The food was delicious, the rooms were comfortable and the grounds were spectacular. Loved waking up to the view in the Mountain Air room on the 2nd floor in the back corner.

First time staying in a B&B, and it was wonderful. The owners Mike and Mirtha and staff Victoria were all so friendly and helpful. The B&B is so clean and refreshing and the food was excellent. The grounds and scenery were beautiful, a wonderful place to walk, especially in the morning. There is a lovely waterfall and water pool complete... More

We stayed three nights at The Garden Inn and were very pleased. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are immaculate, and the breakfasts are superb. The scenic view out over the Cumberland Plateau is heavenly. Monterey is a very small rural town, so this is not a place to go for the night life. It is geared for relaxation, peaceful... More

I just returned from holding a faculty retreat for the Middle TN School of Anesthesia. It was a great event and Mike made the planning very simple, and I came out looking good in the end. Thanks for wonderful food, accommodations, and an environment that supported productivity. If you need to get your team out of their normal environment to... More

This was my husband and I first time at the Garden Inn. We really enjoyed our stay. The place is just beautiful and so clean. The service we received by Mirtha and Mike and their staff could not have been better. The breakfast was wonderful! We will be back to stay again.

We went to the Garden Inn to celebrate our 20th anniversary. We have never been to a B&B but absolutely LOVED IT. We will be back. The only thing is the TV's are on the small side. The service that we received by Mike and Mirtha and their staff was beyond excellent.

Mike and especially Mirtha made our visit very pleasant. The room while small was all that we needed. A great view of the bluff and a wonderful gas fireplace. The bed was very comfortable, and the room and its attached bath very clean. I have stayed at a number of B & B's in the past and have been served... More

Stayed here after travelling up from the Knoxville area to see a play at the Cumberland County Playhouse. Fresh-baked cookies awaited us upon arrival, and the staff was extremely accommodating in ensuring that all of our needs were met. After retunring from the play, a late-night dessert had been left out for us, which was a lovely touch.Room and bedding... More
