Overview

About the property

Sleeps up to 6, quiet block, leave your car in the driveway and walk everywhere.

A stone's throw from The Chattanooga Choo Choo, and walking distance from the Tennessee River and the Aquarium, our one-of-a-kind colorful and comfy 1200 s.f. apartment, occupying the entire first floor, features urban living at its best in this vibrant, friendly and adventurous city. Located on the bustling Southside, this beautiful Brick Victorian was totally restored by its talented owners in 2008. You'll be literally living in a gallery! Contemporary and cozy, with art in every room, open floor plan, bamboo floors, fully equipped kitchen, king sized master with own TV, two twins, and when there are five or more guests, or by special request, a queen sized murphy converts the gallery into a private 3rd bedroom. Accommodates up to six guests quite comfortably. King bed can be divided into two twins when needed! Affordable alternative to multi-rooms in a hotel. Everything provided, just bring your clothes. The large Southern front porch is like another room. Sit out there and watch the world go by! There is a patio out back if you'd like to barbecue, and a back porch for eating out or just watching the sunset.

Excellent selection of restaurants, shops, and galleries within walking distance. Wifi, flat screen TVs, DVD's, plus second TV in master BR, washer/dryer. Ideal vacation destination for families, girls getaway, corporate lodging, and outdoor lovers. Enjoy Chattanooga's Southern hospitality in an urban setting on a quiet street with the fastest broadband in the country. Grab a free shuttle bus around the corner at the Choo Choo to anywhere around downtown, or rent a bike along the way at bike kiosks. Two good ways to get acquainted with the City! Enjoy the Aquarium, boat rides, The Hunter Museum, IMAX, Children's Discovery Museum, the Majestic Cinema, experience 'The Block', our new outdoor and indoor climbing walls, located across from the Aquarium. Take the walking bridge over the River to the historic North Shore. Just a five minute drive to Rock City, The Incline Railroad, and Ruby Falls. Nearby Golf courses, and yes, only 10 minutes from the airport. Special rates for longer stays. Advance Reservations strongly recommended.

Got a special request?: OPTIONAL: We're happy to accommodate your needs whenever possible. Want the refrigerator stocked? Want to stay in and have a hot meal prepared? Want a golf lesson or two? Your wish is our command!

About Miki & Tom

We came to Chattanooga on an ArtsMove Grant from Bradenton, Florida where we were one of a group of artists instrumental in creating The Village of the Arts, the largest arts enclave on the Gulf Coast.

Miki & Tom purchased this house in 2007

Why Miki & Tom chose Chattanooga

We fell in love with Chattanooga, and being urban pioneers, we love living right downtown. There is so much happening in this medium sized culturally rich city with a myriad of activities for singles and families alike.

What makes this house unique

We are walking distance to great restaurants and right around the corner from the free electric shuttle bus or bike rentals along the way to take you anywhere around downtown ending at the Tennessee River. The Aquarium, live theatre, Symphony, movie theatre and much much more. And there is off-street parking behind the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very rarely do we come across a place that is so in tune with what we enjoy and appreciate.This stay has been one of those occasions and it has been so relaxing and comfortable and stimulating visually as well. Loved the thought and imagination that has gone into the setup but most of all, meeting Miki & Tom has been the real treat.This house is just like them -- unique, inspiring and caring -- we shall be back!

Unique, inspiring, colorful, space in a GREAT location

  • 5 of 5

Sleeping in an art gallery? Yes! This is a comfortable, fully equiped home within a gallery. The artist owners left no detail unattended. We could walk everywhere but were happy to spend time on the front porch or taking in the art. We will definately stay again when we need unique gathering place for friends to stay. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Beautiful, clean house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Chattanooga. Mika and Tom's house is in a great location, near lots of great restaurants and downtown. It is furnished very nicely and is well equipped with everything you'd want in a home away from home. We would definitely stay here again!

Gorgeous, unique, and close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

We had a the best time experiencing downtown Chattanooga. Our group of 6 girls were more than comfortable staying here and we were able to walk a block down the street to enjoy great food and drinks! It was great!

What a Wonderful Home!

  • 5 of 5

Becuase of my love of the arts, I have always enjoyed looking at the pictures of this home on VRBO. So on Easter weekend I finally had the opportunity to enjoy the comfort of this "artsy" and fun space. All the artwork simply added to the ambiance and the warmth of this home. I sincerely appreciated Miki's hospitality. She met us and made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. We were very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I will definitely book this space again. Ingrid

Perfect stay for a Chattanooga Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about this rental! The hosts are so kind and accommodating and the location is fabulous - we were actually able to walk almost everywhere we went! We also loved the vibes of the place - so much color, life and art everywhere. It was extremely comfortable too! If you're on the fence, book this place! You won't find a better place to stay in Chattanooga!

Nearest Airport

Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport
Car: necessary

Located downtown in the historic Southside arts district, we love being able to walk to restaurants and down to the waterfront. Our favorite breakfast/lunch place is the Bluegrass Grille at the corner. The Flying Squirrel and The Terminal, just two of our favorite local watering holes, are a couple of blocks away. Five minutes by car is Ruby Falls, The Incline Railway, and Rock City. Voted the #2 arts destination in a mid-sized City and Where to Retire Magazine voted it one of the top places in the country to live (Mar/Apr 2011). (The owners made the cover). Rich in cultural and outdoor activities, fabulous restaurants, and lots of attractions and Seasonal festivals. Just 1-1/2 hours from Atlanta, and 10 minutes from the Chattanooga Metropolitan airport.

Golf: There are more than six municipal golf courses within fifteen minutes to half an hour of downtown with moderate price ranges.
