Chatter Magazine: Gourmet Meal in Tennessee

"...Though the nearby Monteagle Inn is just 10 years old, it is already a firmly established bed and breakfast. The Inn offers thirteen elegantly appointed rooms decorated in the warm, soft colors of the Mediterranean and complimented by the works of local artists and craftsmen. The common area feels like the living room of a graceful home with unique antiques and Italian art. Monthly five-course, wine dinners are popular attractions. Ranging in theme from Chilean to Napa Valley, each course is prepared in-house by Chef Hope Underhill and paired with a complimentary wine.

In this era of the ever-expanding metropolis, locals like to speculate on why the small towns of Sewanee and Monteagle have always been such popular retreats. But the refreshingly-relaxed pace of the area creates just the kind of sanctum urban escapees seek."
