"We couldn't be more impressed with this jewel of Calhoun County. On a scale of 1 to 10, Cart Barn Inn rates an 11. The accommodations beat others we've experienced in New York, Boston, Miami, Chicago, London and places in between. Thank you for your fine hospitality and for making our visit to Bruce a memorable one. Where else could we stay and top rate lodging, eat fantastic food, swing on the porch, play golf, and watch our kids play hide and seek and ride scooters and play ball with the inn keeper? Only at the Cart Barn Inn!!! We will certainly be back and look forward to introducing our other family members to this wonderful place."

"Cart Barn Inn is a jewel to find. Beautifully creative in the design it is quiet and comfortable. Ms. Kay is the ultimate inn owner who makes you feel right at home and you can tell by the repeat guests you talk to at breakfast. She leaves out snacks, serves a hearty home-cooked breakfast each morning and gives helpful information and good conversation. It is well worth the 27 mile drive from Oxford to enjoy the peace and quiet in the large spacious rooms!"

"I'd heard about the Cart Barn Inn before but had never stayed there until the weekend of May 5th, 2019. I had a wonderful experience! My room was spacious, well-equipped, and beautiful. The hostess was charming, friendly, and hospitable; and the breakfast was superb. I look forward to staying there again and again on my trips to Calhoun County."

"Our large extended family recently needed a place to stay as we gathered for the end of life of a loved one. When we came, we didn’t know how long we would need to stay. Brett and Dana showed gracious hospitality and bent over backwards to accommodate our ever changing needs for rooms. The rooms were clean, spacious, and comfortable and we were treated like family. Thank you, Brett and Dana! We will see you next time!"

"We had such a great stay at CBI 7/21-23/23! It was a special weekend with family from six states coming for a reunion. We had 9 of the 10 rooms! Great fun! The patio was perfect for our Friday night cookout and for hanging out into the night. Beautiful lights and lots of seating and space for yard games. Breakfast was a perfect southern meal with biscuits and gravy to make your grandmother proud! Bacon and eggs were perfect. They even sent us all home with the best homemade banana bread and cream cheese icing!!! The rooms were so clean and comfortable. Thank you for the hospitality, Brett and Dana. We are so glad you are carrying on the CBI. Hail State!!"

"My buddy Richard and I are riding the Trans America Trail (TAT). We needed a place to stay for the night and the Cart Barn Inn showed up and wasn’t too far off the TAT route so we decided to book a room. What a hidden gem. Brett the owner/host was super helpful and very friendly. Southern hospitality at it’s best. Peaceful and quiet setting. Would recommend this Inn to any traveller. Five stars across the board."

It was literally like a home away from home. The owners Brett and Dana are beautiful people who treat you like you are part of the family. Service and accommodations are second to none.
