Jim Oliver’s Smokehouse of Monteagle
This is a sprawling locale with the main building alone standing at 10,000 square feet. Enjoy the Old General Store for an old school experience complete with handcrafted gifts, country-grown meats, condiments, and jams for sale, and homemade fudge samples. Take a tour of the Louvin Brothers Museum or the Hamper McBee Moonshine Still. There are music and other events scheduled every weekend, a convenient online store, as well as lodging and meeting space on the premises.
If you’re willing to ride to Chattanooga (about an hour), a whole new array of activities opens up, including the famous Tennessee Aquarium. Situated on the riverfront and separated into two expansive buildings, you’ll find freshwater exhibits in one and saltwater creatures in the other. Don’t miss the interactive shows, IMAX, and cruises along the water.
Bigfoot Adventure Zipline
For those traveling with kids (or just those young at heart!), consider a visit to the Bigfoot Adventure Zipline! Enjoy the scenery as you’ve never experienced it before as you zip through the trees with the guidance of experienced, fun-loving staff. There’s also a family campground, disc golf course, and more.
If you opt to dine outside the Manor or get carryout, try some of these:
Tess’s Kitchen Cafe
Twenty minutes’ drive southwest in Pelham, Tennessee, stands Tess’s Kitchen Cafe. Choose from country food, pizza, Asian fusion, burgers, dogs, wings, salads, and desserts. The Every Day Special includes two types of meat (i.e., fried chicken, pork chops, hamburger steak, grilled salmon, chicken gizzards, etc.) with three sides (like mashed potatoes, boiled cabbage, sliced tomatoes, fried okra, pinto beans, etc.). Highly recommended by former guests: the banana pudding cheesecake, pork fried rice, and peanut butter cake.
Jim Oliver’s Smokehouse Lodge of Monteagle also has a popular restaurant you’ll enjoy if you’re headed that way. Indulge in home-cooked southern dishes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and desserts, including such favorites as biscuits and gravy, sugar-cured ham, fried pickles, catfish, and bread pudding.
