Great little house on the river and just 10 minutes from downtown

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely book this house again! My inlaws were visiting and we wanted a nice place for them to stay while they were in Chattanooga. This property exceeded our expectations and it was perfect! Everything has been completely renovated and was like new in this old river cottage. We really enjoyed the private dock and screened in porch where we were able to watch the kayaks, boats, and wildlife float by.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

The river house offered a cozy stay for my wife, toddler and I for our Chattanooga getaway. The interior is new and renovated and is perfect for a couple or small family. It rained for most of our stay, however the screened-in enclosed back porch allowed us to enjoy the fresh air while staying dry. The view from the porch was awesome! Property included a green riverfront area including a fire pit. Only a 12 minute drive to downtown, easy access to the aquarium, children's museum and lots of great restaurants. Overall, we would definitely stay at Jim's place again.

Perfect riverfront getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Thanksgiving and loved it. This home has been recently updated, is very clean, comfortable and the location is great. The kids loved fishing from the dock! We were able to easily get to all the great restaurants and activities in Chattanooga. The screened in porch was a great place to relax after hiking. Jim, the owner, is very helpful and quick to respond to any questions. We highly recommend staying here and hope to be back this summer!

Stay here! Great house with an amazing view <3

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to TN/Chattanooga, and my husband and I fell in love with the people and the area! Jim was an amazing host - very gracious and responsive. The house has been recently updated and was very comfortable. And that view!!! Our favorite part of the visit was hanging out on the screened-in deck and just looking at the amazing view of the Tennessee River and watching the boats go by. We even adjusted our agenda so we would have more "hanging out at the house" time. We were also very surprised how close the house was to downtown Chattanooga. At no time did we feel like we were even close to the city, but we were just a short 15 min drive away - best of both worlds! We would 100% stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone.
