My wife and I wanted a quiet getaway and we got that. We spent NYE here and it was everything we expected. The doorman Daniel was so attentive and so welcoming to us. We left him a tip at the front desk because he stayed on our mind but was off right after we checked in but was the best of everyone here. This is a great getaway for families and even couples. We are already planning our next getaway in May of 2018. The only reason the Inn didn't get 5 stars was because the hot water and coffee sat out for guests was never hot. We stayed here for 2 days and it was always warm not hot! We felt this was bad because it was 9 degrees outside. Brrrrrr! Also the restaurant and room service was very limited.

This Inn is only 4 years old, replacing the old Inn. It is built to fit in with the Sewanee University. It is lovely!

The location, the rooms were excellent, the food was wonderful. the surrounding area was to die for. the rooms were roomy, the staff did everything and more than we asked for. and the bellhops and staff were excellent. Couldn't have had a more wonderful trip. Looking forward to taking my husband there for a golf trip.

Everyone needs to go it is a great place to just relax and enjoy the countryside and the small town atmosphere. the local shops and restaurants are really excellent. The church on the campus is a must see. Its great for a ladies trip weekdays not much traffic, easy to get to from Atlanta, just a great place to see, and if you like to hike there are wonderful waterfalls in the area.
