We spent the night here while travelling, reasonable rates and dog friendly. The room was large and clean, though we did notice a slightly musty smell when we forest walked in. Good wifi in the room. Large open area behind the main buildings with a pool, cabins, etc, great for kids and pets. We had dinner at their adjacent restaurant.... More

This is our third stay at the Smoke House. It is our first choice when visiting the area. It is locally owned, clean and comfortable. It's not luxurious - for luxury go to the Sewanee Inn and pay up to $300 or more per night per room. Or save your money, and enjoy the Smoke House.

I stayed here a few years back and it was ok. I was surprised as I checked in tonight. The beds are great, the decor nice for an older lodge. I love the floors and the overall update. I think it is a very good value for the cost and very comfortable.

Thank you so much for the review, we appreciate your feed back. We've been working hard to turn the lodge into a great place, and we've got great employees working to make it all happen. Sounds good to hear it from the customer. More

Had a great time at The Smoke House Cabins. The evening was quiet and relaxing. Great way to recharge the batteries and get away from the hustle n bustle around Nashville.

The Smoke House Lodge is a fabulous and long-time establishment that sits atop Monteagle Mountain and is just a very short distance from the Monteagle I-24 exit. This lodge has been recently renovated and is absolutely beautiful. My room was well appointed and had every basic amenity that a person could want. In addition to serving as a great lodging...

There is a lot of activities on the property like corn hole, basket ball, ladder ball and the pool. The customer service at the restaurant was not good. I stood for about three minutes and then finally asked an employee where I could sit and she mumbled something and walked away. So I did not eat there. When checking in... More

So sorry for your experience, but the city utility department did shut off the water for a couple of hours, and that affected not only you but alot of customers in the lodge and the restaurant, we had no control over that shut off.

The entrance and lobby are beautiful. The room we stayed in and the grounds look like they could use some maintenance. Our room smelled musty. Most likely due to the air conditioner that appeared to have some mildew in it. It's possible that they are beginning remodel but the room we stayed in wasn't very well cleaned and overall was...
