About Tena Kellis

JD and I are from Chattanooga and have lived on the river for 25 years and every day feels like we are coming home from work to vacation. We enjoy boating, fishing and just hanging out on the banks of the Tennessee river. So, we thought what a wonderful experience to share with our GUEST! We hope we leave every guest with the feeling they can't wait to come back and refer their friends to enjoy the experience.

Most Memorable Spring Break!

  • 5 of 5

Little House on the River is a very clean, comfortable, and spacious home with amazing views of the Tennessee River. It's in the perfect spot: nestled away in nature away from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet close enough to drive downtown or to all the attractions that Chattanooga has to offer. You couldn't ask for better hosts than Tena and J.D. Very gracious and generous, made us feel at home immediately. There were a lot of special touches all around the house that made it very unique! Chattanooga is a very interesting place full of history, and we packed a lot into our stay. But one of our absolute favorite things that we did was to have morning coffee on the deck and watch the river. Very calm with wildlife quietly stirring. It was very relaxing and just what we needed! We had an awesome time, met a wonderful couple, and brought back great memories. We look forward to our next trip down!

Wow! This place is a little piece of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week here with my family and parents and it is definitely top notch amenities! If you happen to forget something they provided it! Such a welcoming and inviting cottage on the river! We enjoyed all the sites of Chatanooga while there but looked forward every day to coming back to the river and just spending time there. It is so relaxing and the beauty there is just breathtaking! We will definitely be back! This place will not disappoint!

Beautiful views - wonderful stay!

The house was very nice. Well equipped and homey feel. The owners were very hospitable. Left us muffins and snacks. We had a fire pit that we used to make s'mores. The views were breathtaking. Very relaxing stay. Highly recommended.
