Ok Super find when looking for lodging between Atlanta and Louisville. It's worth the short drive off the interstate for the experience. Be sure to take 15 mins to drive through the university - gorgeous. Forget Murfreesboro. Rates here are cheaper than the upscale Murfreesboro hotels, and the facilities, staff, and ambiance are twice as nice. One night here is... More

You should go OUT OF YOUR WAY to make every effort to stay at the Sewanee Inn. The design, decor, services, hospitality, and comfort are just perfect. This place captures the Spirit of Sewanee. Worth every penny. The rooms were immaculate. Coffee in the morning was wonderful, and the sitting areas both inside and out were fantastic. Truly a top... More

I stumbled upon this location while picking up a classic car in Monteagle, TN. So glad to find this gem of a property. The facilities were in perfect shape. I will certainly recommend to my friends and certainly go back!

I so enjoyed my stay at the Sewanee Inn in May of 2015. The rooms were lovely and spacious and the property is gorgeous. Great breakfast each morning. We only had the opportunity to have dinner one evening, but is was excellent - loved the Crawfish Beignets! Probably the nicest thing about the Sewanee Inn is the staff - gracious... More

The Inn was great as usual, however the experience in the restaurant was disappointing. We waited over 1-1/2 hrs for our meal. The restaurant was not all that crowded either. When our meal finally arrived, the buns were still partially frozen. Next time we will just eat at the bar. We never had any problem there

Fantastic experience and close to a lot of great outdoor ventures. I would recommend this to anyone who is a hiking, biking, outdoor enthusiast etc. It is quite easy to access all of these while staying at a top notch hotel. I only wish I had more time to try out the golf course.

Relaxing, amazing views, comfortable stay. Biking, hiking, delicious food, golf, great proximity to university setting. Rooms are comfortable, but not over the top. Service is friendly and welcoming. We will return!
