What a way to relax totally and enjoy a vacation so close to Chattanooga but far from the bustle.

  • 5 of 5

The people were so friendly. The view and atmosphere so beautiful and relaxing. Kayaking was great! The morning view was mystic with lifting fog above the river. Pictures do not give justice to the breathtaking view of the mountains in the gorge. Sit and enjoy on the docks and patios and watch the barge as it moves slowly on the river. I will never stay in a motel at Chattanooga as long as Ray has a place for us to stay! Thanks Ray!

Very pleased with the overall experience

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this property during the week of Apr 17-21, 2017. It was our first time to the area, and we would definitely go back on any future visits. We particularly liked the location of the property. It was close enough to Chattanooga so that we could easily take in all of the tourist locations or to go our for lunch, or even to grab some groceries when you wanted to eat in. But the big selling feature was the location on the banks of the Tennessee River. The kids loved being able to play on the mini-trampolines and the open field area, as well as dipping nets into the water from the dock. We even took the opportunity to go for a trip out onto the river with the 2-person kayaks. And the placement of the hammocks were perfect to allow you to relax in the shade during those hotter spring days.

The fold-down futon in the living room allowed for a separate sleeping area for the kids. The kitchen was well stocked with most of the appliances and cooking utensils that one would normally need to do your own cooking. There were separate TVs in both rooms, although we really only needed the one.

There weren't too many negatives about the place. If we had to name a couple, we had a minor ant problem in the house. We never figured out where they were getting in, and we ended up killing 15-20 ants during our visit. Another minor issue was the inconsistent Wi-Fi in the house and on the property. There were 5 or 6 different Wi-Fi options available to us, and sometimes we had to re-connect on a different one just to get consistent and/or faster internet. (First world problems, we know!!) The last issue we had with the site was a somewhat lumpy bed in the bedroom, and a mattress that had a bit of a dip in the middle. At some point a new mattress would be a good investment. But other than these minor issues (which didn't really affect our experience that much), we were very pleased with the property and would definitely recommend the site to others.

Great family stay on the river!

  • 5 of 5

We took the family for a few nights visit to Chattanooga for Spring Break. We loved this property and area! Ray, our host, was great and helpful and had everything we needed. I highly recommend this property - so much better than staying in a hotel! We had access to the kayaks and paddle boards which we took advantage of on a few occasions. We grilled out and enjoyed the beautiful weather and water down by the docks. Thanks for a great visit!

About Ray Gorrell

I am a father and grandfather. I love the river because it is a great way to spend time with my family and friends. I enjoy Chattanooga nightlife and family fun in the city! I am a restoration artist for houses in North Chattanooga!

Ray Gorrell purchased this condo in 1980

Why Ray Gorrell chose Chattanooga

This property is the perfect vacation spot for many reasons! Who doesn't love the river and the summer sun? Swimming all day then laying out to dry in the sun. The pavilion is perfect for grilling dinner after a long day on the water!

What makes this condo unique

I will take you out for a ride on my pontoon boat! We also have free paddle boards and kayaks for vacation rentals.
