Enjoyed having a place for our big group!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! We were so thankful that we were all able to stay together and hang out in a common room. We were a little surprised how connected all the rooms were. 5 rooms with beds and a room with a futon (the house used to be a quad plex).Our room and the neighboring room did not have a door inbetween them.

+~We enjoyed how close we were to a strip of stores and restaurants- we walked there one of the days. The amount of parking is great too, our group came from all over, so we all brought vehicles. The full kitchen was handy.

--~We were in town for a wedding, so one of the afternoons, we all got showers at the same time. The water stayed pretty warm, but the water pressure was pretty inconsistent.

There were a couple of pillow cases that had mildew on them.

Overall great experience, thanks for having us!

We are very happy to offer a place for large groups of active people to stay, enjoying all the outdoor activities Chattanooga has to offer.

We asked for our money back and went to a hotel.

  • 1 of 5

My family and I arrived at The Keeton House on August 10th to celebrate my Mother's 65th birthday. We were aware from the reviews of the Keeton house property that the home was an older home. No one can appreciate an older home more than my Mother, so we thought this was a perfect location for our family. Upon arrival we noticed the house was not clean - there were large cobwebs everywhere. The house was indeed old. But, not only was it old, it hasn't been kept up. The outside of the home looked like the home could have literally fallen apart at any moment. There were several porches/decks on the home (which our small children were excited about), but the decks looked as if they could have fallen with any added weight on them. There was rotten wood everywhere. We did not feel safe having our small children there at all. Those were our main concerns. We left the property (we were probably there about an hour - didn't even unpack) and went to a hotel. And to update on our refund, they are now refusing to give us a full refund, and we have filed a complaint with VRBO. And it would be quite a hike over a busy road to walk to the aquarium - definitely couldn't do it with kids and strollers and all the things you would need to bring with you!

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing the Keeton House to celebrate your mother's 65th birthday. We are sorry that we were not given the opportunity to address your concerns before you left the home. We are proud of our housekeeping service which has done an excellent job in the past. I would have had them come back out to get the cobwebs in the 2 locations you pointed out that they had missed. As far as the structural integrity of the house, we had it thoroughly inspected when we purchased it as a vacation home. We have had many guests, including repeat guests, and none have brought up a question of structural soundness before. It is a 1920's home with character and charm that older homes have. However, it is thoroughly cleaned and spotless for each guest. Our vacation home is accessible to downtown Chattanooga attractions by an approximately 25 minute walk via the Walnut Street Bridge, a pedestrian-specific bridge over the Tennessee River. The bridge is used by many families including those with young children. We are proud to offer vacation lodging at the Keeton House. We value the input of our guests.

We were in Chattanooga for a family wedding and found this house was perfect for part of the family that came. The home was clean and we entered the home on a hot day finding the air conditioning turned on and ready for our comfort right from the get go. The notebook on things to know about the home and things to do was great. So glad we extended our time in Chattanooga with this home as it contributed to our wonderful stay. Thank you!!!
