Greetings from your friends
Indeed the leaves are changing and all of the elements this year are coming together to present one of the most beautiful and enjoyable fall spectacles in years. Come discover how special this time of year truly is. We were busy in September attending two major food shows and two tremendous wine tastings.
We have developed some delicious new dishes as well as updating some of our recipes to take them up a notch. We are very excited about our new offerings and will be utilizing them in our upcoming dinners, retreats and catering events.
Our local cable provider has informed us that we can expand our TV offering to more than the current three rooms due to new technology. Additional rooms will have flat screen TVs added this Fall. You do not have to turn them on if you prefer the peace and tranquility of the inn.
Wishing you a happy fall,
Jim & Lee Harmon and all of your friends @ Monteagle Inn & Retreat Center
