We loved our stay at this lovely in which is 5 minutes and a world away from I-40 in Monterey, TN. The view was spectacular and Mike and Mirtha were delightful hosts. We enjoyed a wonderful breakfast as well.

I give my wife credit for finding this gem of a getaway in the hills of Tennessee. Great staff, great food, cozy room, sweet view. This place has the whole package, and you won't break the bank making reservations. Swing by nearby Crossville for fun cheese shops and the Cumberland County Playhouse. We plan on coming back and bringing friends/family....

The room was very clean and fresh feeling (despite its age) with a fireplace and nice view. The proprietor went the extra mile to accommodate special diets and was genuinely interested in doing so. The meeting room had a nice view and was quiet and off by itself one floor down from the main area.

The Garden Inn, just a few yards off I-40, has become our standard lodging on the second night of our drive north from Austin. This time Mirtha was away, so we were greeted by Mike in his usual friendly and hospitable fashion. After we were shown to our room, we took a stroll around the grounds, which are extensive and...

Simply a spectacular place to catch up on some relaxation and to take in all that nature has to offer. Mike was a splendid host and a pleasure to share conversation with. The B&B was expertly decorated with a slightly feminine touch that certainly added to the romantic atmosphere. The magazine selection was second to none and both my wife...

This was our fourth stay at the Garden Inn. Our reception has been warm and friendly. Our rooms have been quite good, well furnished, very clean, comfortable. Of course, the breakfast is superb!

We've stayed at quite a few B&B's. This one is very fine. My wife and I like to take overnights on our Harley and stay at B&B's. This was our first time at the Garden Inn.

First time staying in a B&B. It really is different than staying in a standard hotel in all the right ways. Quiet, but plenty of opportunity to interact with other guests if you prefer.
