We spent two nights at the Edgeworth Inn and really enjoyed it there. To be clear, it is an 1896 historic site. We found the room with updated bedding and furnishings to be lovely. If you’re into an easy walk/hike for an hour or so, you have a few choices in the Assembly and the sights are incredible. There are longer trails too. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful. Kimberly is a great cook. The owner is gracious and quite accommodating. We are looking forward to our next visit.
We had planned a trip to The Caverns in Pelham, TN and thought a place like Edgeworth Inn would be nice. It was my birthday weekend and a great gift from my hubby. This place is overpriced for being so runned done. The owner is aloof and no interaction with guests. Her help is super nice. The bathrooms are the original and just not what I expected. Bed furnishings are old and so are the rugs. There was no bottled water or snacks for later in the day. I’ve been to several B&B’s that are beautifully appointed and super clean. It ruined it for us. We are back to the hotel.
We stayed here when going to a show at the new fabulous venue The Caverns. It’s a lovely old inn located in a beautiful enclave of very old, magnificent homes. They also provided a made to order breakfast. We will stay there again.
We were disappointed by the condition of the Garden/Family Suite, which was comprised of second-hand furniture in poor condition and one bed so ridiculously high off the ground that you had to crawl/hoist yourself up and onto it with a concerted effort (and we r of average height). Being the more comfortable bed of the two in the suite, hoist and crawl we did. Fortunately the bed was comfortable and the suite was clean, but the furniture was worn and stained. There was a tv stand with no TV but a cable sticking out of the wall where the TV had been, although they said they could probably try to find one if needed. The setting, in the Assembly campus in the woods, was very pretty and the common areas seemed a little nicer and cheerier than our room. Other rooms may be in better condition than where we stayed, based on the varying levels of satisfaction by different reviewers. The staff was friendly and the breakfasts were quite good. For what we paid, I expected a much, much nicer suite; the photos of the suite on the website are not representative of its actual condition. …
We stayed there one night, and it was delightful. It is reminiscent of time gone by. The owner greeted us and gave us a tour and moved the breakfast time to accommodate our needs. Breakfast included our choice of eggs, fruit, sausage and grits. Wine and snacks were available upon arrival. The owner suggested a good place to eat dinner and was helpful with directions. The decor was cozy and appropriate for the age of the home. My teenager was a bit thrown at no TV, but we streamed a show on our computer so all was well with the world. I want to go back and stay longer than one night!
I booked a room 6 months in advance. The process was smooth. I was able to choose a specific room since I booked so far in advance. Prior to the date I received an email asking if we would consider relocating to another room. I agreed, assuming it was equivalent. It was not, not even close. The staff was very nice. Breakfast was good but nothing particularly special. I’ve stayed at nice B&B’s in Maine but this is not up to those standards. You can hear everything that goes on in an adjacent room. More than you want to hear. The setting is great but it’s not nice enough to overcome the other shortcomings.
The Edgeworth Inn was promising given its location in the Assembly in Monteagle. For those of you that don’t know, The Assembly is something like Chautauqua during Summer. It is full of older, quaint homes and recent remodels that people hold in their families for generations. During the Summer there are constant activities for intellectuals and forest lovers...art and cooking classes, visiting lecturers, and yoga. In the middle of this enclave is a larger home, tucked away so you would barely know it was a bed and breakfast. It has a great face on it. Fits into the quaint part of the Assembly in which it rests. A beautiful porch around the outside with rocking chairs, swings, and tables. It’s when you get closer that the luster begins to wear out. The chairs and tables are so unsteady that they make enough noice to wake the guests. The creaking floors are beautiful as they show a great history, but you will hear all of the guests coming and going at all hours, the staff arriving early to make breakfast, etc. while the fittings are eclectic...they are really actually quite junk like. Coffee in the morning is served out of a variety of decanters squeezed tight on a table in the hallway with less than adequate accoutrements- sugar and sugar supplements. The cups are turned upside down on a tray and soon dwindle - only some bear a resemblance to the others. The breakfast was moderately good...and cooked/served by very nice local staff. White I expected a bed-and-breakfast...I really got a crummy old hotel that left me without the experience I had hoped for. …
Me and 3 friends stayed while attending bonnaroo festival which turned out to be an ideal haven away from the chaos of the campground. Dede runs the Inn in a way that you feel its your home too. Its charming and the attention to detail is abundant. Highly recommended. Staying again next year.
This is a charming, wonderful location with so much character. Dede is lovely and there is certainly something magical about the mountain. Breakfast was good and the porch is divine. However, there are some details that would make this even better.....great claw foot tub but patches of enamel coming off, transom was missing in between bathroom and bedroom, a light was out in the bathroom, moldy windowsills, and generally not as clean as I would like. This is an old house with creaky floors and doors that do not lock unless you are in the room. All in all, a great stay for one night, but be aware that you are paying for the location and charm.
Have stayed many times over last 5 years.that it's like visiting a charming?, intellectual and cultured family member's uncontrived home full of wonderful books and a special art collection. The owner, Dede is so lovely and will engage you with her knowledge of this special community. I'm tired of contemporary hotels and even inns that have hard edges to the furnishings and no warm atmosphere. Chintz, down cushioned enveloping sofas and throw pillows make for a real inn experience and the breakfasts and intimate weekend gourmet dinners are the best on the mountain !
