Found property on internet. Web-page looks MUCH nicer than facility. Old, shabby, run down and musty. They are located within a retreat, for which we were going to be charged $16 each just to enter the gate, in addition to the room rate of $211 per night. The retreat is called "the Assembly." It may be a wonderful experience, but for travelers wishing overnight facilities for a family visit to Sewanee, it would be very nice to know of the "gate fee" when booking the room. We were informed only on arrival of the fee since "assembly is in session." Owner was actually a pleasant lady, who tried to negotiate to pay half, then all of the gate fee, but when we saw our room we decided to take our chances elsewhere. I have been promised a refund check in the mail. If you are looking for a retreat with facilities similar to a rustic church camp, then this is the place for you. Price point should come in significantly below current rates, perhaps $45 to 60 per night.
Just across street is a very nice facility called Monteagle Inn. Stay there instead.
