Nice, clean and great location
We enjoyed our stay at the Bear House. Steve and Sharman were excellent host. Our unit was clean, well decorated and comfortable. It is conveniently located with access to stores, restaurants but also the attractions in the area. I recommend this place and planning on using it again. Thank you!
Our 2019 vacation
To you and Steve and Sharman, We have this to say .
We wish we could’ve stayed longer.. like a MONTH.. but not being possible we are super glad of our choice for this property.. the owners Steve and Sharman are the most dedicated to providing comforts on their properties for their guests that we have ever know, we have been in MANY properties in 28 years we have been coming to the blue ridge area and to Chattanooga but ..this property in St Elmo was totally NEW for us..so much history here.... all I can say is, We had never been Anywhere we felt more at home than here at Lily’s Loft... We had a family crisis back at home the same day we arrived and tried to make the best of it...and unfortunately did not visit many near by places... BUT it wouldn’t of been a lot harder if we were in a hotel, Sharman and Steve are the BEST host’s , providing ALL the necessary and things that may be forgotten..you would be missing out if you don’t reserve at least 3 nights in any of their properties .
We certainly are hoping to return and actually find all the animals Sharman has all over her beautiful grounds.. 😂�
We recommend it 💯� %.

About Steve and Sharman Sherfey
The Bear House is a beautifully restored 6,500square foot house built in 1890. We have lived here for 25 years, raising our four children and enjoying this small community (St Elmo) within the city. Our long-term plan has been to share this special property as a B&B/Short Term Rental when we retired. We opened as The Bear House in March of 2017. It has been a truly special year and brought great joy sharing The Bear House and meeting so many wonderful guests. Steve and I live on the 1st floor of the house, which is completely separate from the 2nd story listings as well as the basement/lower level listing. In addition, we have the Carriage House with 2 listings. We are proud of The Bear House and think you will have a wonderful stay!
Steve and Sharman Sherfey purchased this Apartment in 1992
What makes this Apartment unique
Beautifully restored 120 year old house and additional Carriage house with beautiful grounds. A rare opportunity to stay in a special historic property that adds to your trip experience; much more than simply a place to spend the night! One of the best locations for a trip to Chattanooga.
