For a visit to historical Rugby, this property decorated with antiques is a great way to relax and go back in time a bit. The food is fabulous and the service most gracious. Even on a very rainy weekend, we were so glad we had stayed there. Sitting on the covered porch on the back, listening to the rainfall on...

Not only do you get a very large hearty country breakfast, but it also has a wonderful home cooked Dinner as well. And while there, you must try...

Her cooking is wonderful (I hope to come close to her delicious almond tea and other recipes...bought a cookbook!) and she is very accommodating. Angie, one of her staff members, was delightful as...

The, truly, only place to stay in the Rugby area on the Cumberland Plateau. Very nice family atmosphere. There are other Smaller places in town where we could have stayed; but these folks were really the nicest. The food was delicious too.

Looking for a short getaway, I came across Grey Gables in Rugby, TN. Never did we expect such a wonderful experience! Linda Brooks Jones is the epitome of gracious hosts, and, boy can she cook! Every morning we sat to a complete southern breakfast, and every night enjoyed a remarkable 4-course meal. The food was incredible, her staff is wonderful,...

My family visited to celebrate a birthday. The food was absolutely terrific. The home made rolls are amazing. The staff provided ice cream for our birthday cake. The home is welcoming. We had very polite and efficient service. Highly recommended!

We have stayed several times at the Grey Gables and have enjoyed it each time. The hospitality and flexibility that Linda offers is only second to her cooking. Breakfast is amazing and always more than you can eat. It is always relaxing and quiet with every amenity you could ask for. Great place for families or couples. Lots to do...

“All of the rooms are great, some accommodate couples better than others. You can not go wrong with any room, the only decision is whether you want the first or second floor.”
