On January 1, 2016 my wife's David Yurman antique topaz earrings went missing from Room 202 during or following checkout. The General Manager, Mr. Michael Butel, initially promised a thorough investigation, as did Officer Brian Wiley of the Sewanee Police Department, but nothing has apparently been done and my requests for information and updates have been ignored. This is a... More

I stayed 3 nights with three other colleagues (separate rooms). The hotel is beautiful, comfortable and very gracious. Staff is courteous and efficient. The rooms are deluxe and extremely quiet. It was a pleasure to stay at the Sewanee Inn. The value is incomparable. Loved sitting by the big fire with a glass of wine, chatting with new friends. Thank... More

This Inn is new and owned by the University. My room was lovely and well outfitted (higher-end). The location is picturesque and I loved looking out at the 9 hole golf course. The staff overall was friendly and accommodating (though they need decaf coffee at conferences!). The food at the conference was pleasant and I heard the food in the... More

I still think they are working out some kinks but it's definitely a great option to have for staying on the Mountain. I have not been terribly impressed by the food but find the staff to be cheerful and helpful and the beds are comfortable.

Lovely location in one of my favorite towns. Unfortunately I feel it is overpriced for the level of service you receive, and the room could have used a bit more attention to detail in the cleaning department.

Have stayed here at The Sewanee Inn on five occasions. The Inn never disappoints! Was only on the mountain for a brief visit and a one night stay. Wish I could have stayed the entire weekend because the weather was absolutely gorgeous! As usual, the staff was very accommodating! Will hopefully be returning in the near future. Just wish there...

Generally-- pleasurable experience. Second stay while visiting Sewanee. Last visit less than expected due to TV not working and no one on front desk to respond to call. Eventually help arrived after we had gone to bed.
