This place is amazing. Very pleasant stay with my family. We will be back a lot. Only be sure to make a reservation at the hotel restaurant to not be rushed to finish the meal before the other guest reservation time. Congratulations to the Amazing staff.

This place is gorgeous! The wife and I came here for our anniversary and some mistakes were made with the arrangements I had made with some flowers, wine, and chocolate covered strawberries. The manager and staff were overwhelmingly apologetic and the things they did to make up for the mistake were above and beyond any type of customer service I've ever gotten anywhere. So of course we come back and bring friends and we all just had a great time. The bar is very nice and the restaurant is excellent with great staff. I really can't say enough good stuff about this place and we will definitely be coming back often.

Building was beautiful, rooms were nice and cozy…however the staff was so rude. After driving 12 hours to get here we walked into the dining area to order food and the staff didn’t even greet us or take our order. We had to seek out someone to order. After our meal we wanted to order ice cream shakes which is on the menu, while ordering over the phone… a staff member yelled out… “tell them to go to McDonald’s “ at this point we were ready to pack our things and leave. Most uncomfortable stay I’ve ever had.

Beautiful, comfortable rooms with views of the golf course. This is a gorgeous location for a wedding. And we loved sitting by the big fire in the lobby.

We had booked our honeymoon dinner reservation a week in advance at another restaurant. When the day finally got here, we arrived early for our reservation only to find the place closed for the next week. We were devastated. Luckily, the Sewanee Inn was near by with the Shakerag restaurant still open for just over another hour and they saved our whole night! The place is beautiful, the service excellent, and the food delicious. We looked up prices right there at the table to come back for an actual stay at the Inn on our next visit to the area. Special shout out to Taylor, who was our server! She was attentive, knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. She's exactly who you want to represent your business. Thank you for saving our night! We will be back!

Staff was not friendly and they did not clean our room over 2 night stay. Nice facility but not worth the room rate. Also, the restaurant was very poor service and food.

David Anthony

Very pretty. Bed was comfy and very clean. Enjoyed it


There is a lot of beautiful furniture and the rooms were spacious, clean, and comfortable. I was expecting more flavor from the food, however. The continental breakfast was very disappointing.

Great! People, furnishings, atmosphere, cleanliness - all great.Breakfast was weak point ...until breakfast spot 1858 opens.Restaurant Shakerag was all around great and highly recommended.
