We were definitely relieved when we crossed into Butler, Tennessee and started along the rambling farmlands leading up to the Iron Mountain Inn. We passed many farms and some gorgeous mountain vistas during this part of the drive.
Earlier this year LivingSocial posted a deal for two nights at the Iron Mountain Inn, with breakfast included both mornings and dinner included one night. I’d been wanting to take a getaway weekend vacation for a bit and so I jumped on the deal. I’m not sure Vikki, the innkeeper, was prepared for the onslaught of interest she received from LivingSocial! It took me a bit to finally track someone down to make a reservation and in May I was told that the weekend in June I’d reserved had been double-booked. Luckily it wasn’t a huge issue for us to change weekends, and Vikki was kind enough to throw in a free night for our troubles. The inn had great reviews on TripAdvisor, so I was hoping that the reservation confusion would be the only inconvenience regarding our stay.
Luckily I was right and we had no other issues with the inn. Vikki runs the whole operation by herself, so it is understandable that there’d be some issues with all the reservations. If she does another LivingSocial deal in the future she should totally hire someone to help her out. The Iron Mountain Inn itself, however, was gorgeous and relaxing!
