We stopped by Monteagle for a trip to Nashville. The smoke house has a fancy looking lobby although the staff seemed indifferent. But the room is comfortable and clean, price is reasonable. I would recommend here if you wanna have a stop in Monteagle.

Stayed in a "new" cabin on the property for one night. At first glance, the cabin looked okay. We stayed here because it was pet friendly. The cabin did have what appeared to be a newer sofa but the king mattress was in terrible condition. Needless to say, we had a horrible night trying to sleep. After spending a few... More

Food was terrific, live music on Friday& Saturday nights. Gift shop, hotel and cabins too. They offer a buffet or the ribs with your choice of bbq sauce. Fresh and delicious, definitely worth stopping for. We plan to go back!

Stopped on our way through. Ww had the brisket sandwich. It was very tasty, great smoke flavor, large enough to fill you up. Came with two sides. Service quick and friendly. Clean. Store had many good items to chose from as well. Beer menu was good and less expensive than most places.

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.
