About Rachael Armstrong

Hi! We are Joseph and Mary Armstrong! We want to welcome you to our home. Experience the difference in renting from actual owners instead of a rental company! We know once you see it on here you will have to come and visit us! We have the finest furnishings, fully equipped kitchen, and wonderful custom marble and granite bathrooms. We enjoy the serene surroundings of this home. The peace and quiet is unmatched. Trust me the drive to downtown is nothing! 30 short minutes. Although some attractions on Lookout Mountain may take longer to get to than 30 minutes but it is worth it to stay here!

Family group from Ireland

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful house in Tunnel Hill for 3 nights. The house was spotless and well equipped, we had loads of room for everyone. It is in a lovely location close to lots of fun attractions. I would highly recommend this house for any age group. Thanks so much, we had a fantastic stay in America.

The house is beautiful and big. The pool area helped us make special memories. Relationships between Cousins was formed. We slept great in the beds. Sunsets are great from the hottub. The house was extremely clean and well stocked. It was a great weekend! I highly recommend.

The house is beautiful and the view outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

We filled every bed of this beautiful cabin and were very comfortable. One of the best parts was to sit out on the front porch and just look out over the valley. Just beautiful.

Amazing house, gorgeous views, friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing experience! We had a group of 16 on our annual golf trip. The house is large, roomy, laid out well, and updated with nice ammenities. It has every activity you could ever want (full game room, basketball hoop, pool/jacuzzi, fire pit area). We used them all. We have stayed in the mountains on several different trips but the views we had from the front porch of this house were unparalleled. Pictures do not do it justice. A full panoramic view of the smoky mountain foothills, breathtaking. The owners of the house also live in the area and help run it. They are super nice and attentive. You can just text with any questions or concerns and they get back to you instantly. From top to bottom, our best trip yet!

Was not able to use the pool

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunately, we were not able to use the pool which was a surprise to my family and friends as there was nothing in the agreement regarding the weather restrictions. The agreement had information of the fireplace time restriction, but had nothing on the pool. Most of the days we were there were sunny and beautiful. It was a shame we couldn't use the pool. However, this was the only negative during this trip. The cabin was beautiful and had plenty of space for the three families that occupied the cabin. The kids absolutely loved the game room. The cabin was overall fairly clean. The kitchen had everything you need to cook. The manager was easy to get in touch with and very pleasant. I would definitely go back, especially during the summer when my family can enjoy all the amenities. Five days was definitely not enough! Can't wait to be back to this cabin.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed the home and want to return. Five days isn't enough! We hear that a lot! I'm also glad you had some decent weather! It's been very cold again since you left! Our VRBO listing indicates that the pool is seasonal. I understand where you are coming from on wanting to use it. I also see you did not see it on our website that it is closed until May. I also want to point out though to other guests that there isn't anywhere that states it's open either. Also no one asked me of it would be open or I would have informed you at booking. It would be nice to have a heated pool! Even though it did get up to 75 while you were here that water would have merely been out of the 50's and would've felt like ice. I'm sorry we failed you there! In 4 years you are the first person to ever have this complaint so from now on it is my goal to let everyone know that the pool is closed. Thank you for bringing this up to my attention as I would never want it to happen again! Thank you for the personal compliment! I definitely try to help my guests in any way I can. I am the owners daughter so I love these homes as my own! Thank you for everything! Rachael

Beautiful and Huge

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for 3 nights March 2018 and we absolutely LOVED it! The house was beautiful and huge; the home is better in person than in the photos exceeding our expectations. Our family appreciated all the details and effort put into this home like the large puzzle pieces art work on the walls to the chocolates on the cute stuffed animals on the beds to the extra shampoo bottles left out for us. We spent most evenings in the game room, hot tub, and cozying up in the living room around the fire watching March Madness. We explored the surrounding area including Lookout Mountain, Rock City, Rocktown Trailhead, Cloudland Canyon, and Chattanooga. Our family loves to rent homes and we HIGHLY recommend this one!
