  • Introduction

    The Garden Inn Bed & Breakfast at Bee RockMonterey Tennessee Bed and Breakfast Inn, where we invite you to come and relax on the edge of the Cumberland Plateau at The Garden Inn Bed and Breakfast at Bee Rock near Cookeville TN and Crossville TN. Surround yourself with fifteen acres of mountain scenery, hiking trails, fall foliage, gardens, and landscaped beauty. You will enjoy an atmosphere of peaceful elegance in the backyard of Mother Nature's mountain splendor at our elegant bed and breakfast in Middle Tennessee and we're about an hour's drive from Nashville TN, Knoxville TN, and Chattanooga TN.

    Because we truly believe that the second half of our name is "Breakfast" our guests savor a full sit-down style breakfast every morning that begins with The Garden Inn's own blend of fresh-ground coffee, fresh fruit salad, premium orange juice, two hot entrees, some of the finest bacon or sausage in Middle Tennessee, and assorted teas in our dining room overlooking the spectacular Cumberland Plateau mountain view.

    All guests enjoy our fresh-baked afternoon snacks, an absolutely scrumptious homemade evening dessert by the Innkeepers who started decadent B&B desserts here in Middle Tennessee, and complimentary pre-packaged snacks, bottled water and canned sodas. You may pass the time with a good book in front of the fireplace in the living area or enjoy the Cumberland Plateau mountain views from the upper deck.

    With fifteen acres of woods, sandstone bluffs, and cool mountain breezes, the Inn is perfect for that spring, summer or fall. The Garden Inn also welcomes family reunions, receptions, garden & dinner parties, business meetings & corporate retreats, and church get-a-ways.

    "Our group was searching for an offsite location that was within driving distance of Nashville and after doing a Google search for corporate retreats, we found Mike and The Garden Inn. Wow, what a find! Not only was it a beautiful place, but it was beautiful, the perfect size for our group and the Garden Inn folks were great. Mike couldn’t have been more attentive and helpful in taking care of all of the arrangements – down to the smallest detail. This was a perfect fit for our executive team’s offsite meeting. We look forward to returning." - TripAdvisor Review
