Her cooking is wonderful (I hope to come close to her delicious almond tea and other recipes...bought a cookbook!) and she is very accommodating. Angie, one of her staff members, was delightful as...

The, truly, only place to stay in the Rugby area on the Cumberland Plateau. Very nice family atmosphere. There are other Smaller places in town where we could have stayed; but these folks were really the nicest. The food was delicious too.

Looking for a short getaway, I came across Grey Gables in Rugby, TN. Never did we expect such a wonderful experience! Linda Brooks Jones is the epitome of gracious hosts, and, boy can she cook! Every morning we sat to a complete southern breakfast, and every night enjoyed a remarkable 4-course meal. The food was incredible, her staff is wonderful,... More

Great Service, beautiful facility and Linda Brooks is a great hostess and cook. I will be purchasing one of her unique cook books. Can't wait to come back! Rooms with nice porches upstairs and down stairs. Quiet and beautiful surroundings.

My family visited to celebrate a birthday. The food was absolutely terrific. The home made rolls are amazing. The staff provided ice cream for our birthday cake. The home is welcoming. We had very polite and efficient service. Highly recommended!

We have stayed several times at the Grey Gables and have enjoyed it each time. The hospitality and flexibility that Linda offers is only second to her cooking. Breakfast is amazing and always more than you can eat. It is always relaxing and quiet with every amenity you could ask for. Great place for families or couples. Lots to do... More

I experienced Grey Gables with a group of 15 friends. We were overwhelmed by the welcoming atmosphere, the incredible food, the comfortable rooms, and the amazing Linda Brooks Jones! We could not have been happier with our stay. Highlights include fresh tomato soup, homemade yeast rolls, sherry chicken, homemade biscuits, fresh fruit, farm fresh eggs, sausage and biscuits!

This was our fourth stay at the Grey Gables. It's just about 15 minutes from Jamestown which is the center for the Worlds Longest Yard Sale.

“All of the rooms are great, some accommodate couples better than others. You can not go wrong with any room, the only decision is whether you want the first or second floor.”

“Rooms are furnished with antiques, so I would suggest asking for a larger bed if height is above average….our ancestors were a lot shorter than we are today!”
