About Jackie Ryan

I grew up in Chattanooga and really enjoy coming back home so it seemed logical that I should buy a house here. There's so much for all four of my children to do here and so much to see and the location is so awesome that I couldn't resist!

Jackie Ryan purchased this house in 2010

Why Jackie Ryan chose Orchard Knob

The location is wonderful, so close to all that Chattanooga has to offer!! Only 6 miles to either Hamilton Place or Northgate shopping centers and 2 miles from the downtown area!! All of my neighbors are really wonderful and are fully supportive of the revitalization of the Orchard Knob Area....

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was really nice and the best part was the location so close to downtown activities! It was also good to be able to cook our own meals and not worry about restaurants... the backyard was great for the kids and using the gas grill was great for a quick cookout! "

Christmas at the Ivy House in Chattanooga

  • 5 of 5

My family meet in Chattanooga for Christmas so no one had to travel more than a day.

Chattanooga was the perfect location and the Ivy House turned out being the perfect place. The owner had decorated the house for Christmas which was wonderful surprize. The owner responded and addressed any questions I had within a very short period of time. The house was stocked with all the comforts and amenities of home, which is not always the case in some rentals. My entire family was extremely happy with my choice of the Ivy House. The layout of the house allowed for the entire family to sit and visit comfortably while bedrooms were separated from the living space. I gave this location 5 stars. Very pleased and would highly recommend staying at the Ivy House.

Exquisite decor in well maintained home

  • 5 of 5

My two daughters, sons-in-law, five grandchildren, and I enjoyed staying at the 1905 Ivy Street house. My daughters were very impressed with how well the house was decorated. The children enjoyed the TV in the living room where they could all relax together on the comfortable sofas. The adults especially enjoyed the comfortable beds and the well-stocked kitchen. The house was very clean.

Excellent Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! The house was very spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep, and cook, and hang out. The fourth bedroom downstairs is adjacent to an outside door to the home, but was comfortable and clean. A constructive comment to the owner to put some mats or stickies in the bottom of the tubs/showers upstairs because they were very slick to get into. We would definitely stay here again!

Perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

House was so perfect for our bachelorette weekend getaway. The place was in great shape with all the amenities we could need and everyone had plenty of space. The beds were super comfortable and there was even a few snacks for us when we arrived. The only thing I could possibly say bad was that I slipped getting into the shower, twice, so could definitely use a slip resistant mat in the tub and I will work on my clumsiness ;)

never got to meet Jackie but she was super easy to get in touch with and even let us arrive a little early!

Thanks for the great memories ivy cottage!
