Is an amazing place ... just relax and enjoy the view.... and the breakfast! Also, great coffee! This place is amazing, the house is full of details and every detail makes you feel home. The view of the valley is breathtaking!

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... More

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... More

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... More

My wife and I recently traveled to East Tennessee to do some hiking, and booked here in part due to some of the great reviews on tripadvisor. After visiting this B&B, we have figured out why it gets such good reviews: they are all written by people over a certain age. For those of us not yet retired, here is... More

The Garden Inn has wonderful amenities - clean, comfortable rooms; beautiful, expansive walking areas; a dramatic overlook that's just a short walk away. What I found to be convenient was how quickly and easily you get there - just a short drive from the exit ramp off busy Interstate 40 near Monterey. You can enjoy a nice retreat without driving...

Immaculately clean rooms, not large but big enough, nicely decorated, tasteful and not overdone. Felt very peaceful. Gorgeous views out the back to the plateau. Very nice host, made us feel welcome. Overall quite enjoyable stay. One tiny critique... The tiny old TV in the room. Those could use an update. But who goes to a bed and breakfast to... More

For us, this the ultimate in great places to stay. It is located in a breathtakingly beautiful spot at the edge of a cliff overlooking a forested valley. The room was clean and comfortable, of course, and the breakfast was terrific in taste, presentation, and decor. Mike went out of his way to accommodate my wife's need to avoid gluten... More

My husband and I do not get away together very often. We have a large household and it requires a great deal of our time. The host and staff were very accommodating and engaging. Breakfast each morning was both different and delicious. Mike was very knowledgeable about the area restaurants and activities. We were there 3 nights and stayed in... More
