About Sherry and Francesco

My husband and I have been involved with the resurgence of our neighborhood over the past 15 years and are now eager to share it with new people. We love VRBO and are excited about creating new spaces to show off our neighborhood. We enjoy working with local artists and creating spaces for them to flourish, this is our passion. We have two rambunctious and adventurous children that keep us on our toes and feeling young!

Why Sherry and Francesco chose St. Elmo Improvement League

Enjoy the neighborhood park, the abundant hiking trails that lead to waterfalls and majestic Tennessee views. St Elmo is teaming with locally owned and operated businesses. Our own neighborhood pub, Moccasin Bend Brewing Company, where you can meet the locals or take home a growler (you can also bring your dogs). Visit Mojo Burrito, delicious food in a hip environment, 1885 Restaurant for a more upscale dining experience, don't miss out on their incredible fresh water trout blackened or grilled, or St. Elmo's own Purple Daisy and dine on a BBQ sandwich. St. Elmo Deli will provide you with the perfect lunch on the run. Don't forget Mr.T's Pizza and hand scooped ice cream that has been in the neighborhood for over 20 years!!!! The choices are endless!

What makes this house unique

We can point you in the direction of almost anything that you would like to enjoy in Chattanooga. See seven states from Rock City, visit the nation's largest and deepest underground waterfall at Ruby Falls, take a short ride on the Incline Railway to ascend and descend Lookout Mt, where you have access to amazing views from the top of Lookout Mountain from Point Park, or visit Sunset Rock. We are a mere 5 miles from downtown Chattanooga. Enjoy the river front at Ross's landing on the banks of the Tennessee River, visit the Tennessee Aquarium, and walk right down Broad St and enjoy a Moon Pie! How would you like to see the Hunter Museum or take a walk across the nation's longest pedestrian bridge to Coolidge park in North Chattanooga? There are many locally owned businesses and also some familiar favorites. The list is endless!! (That's just getting to see Chattanooga as a tourist!)

The house was so beautiful, inside and out. Even though there was only two of us staying, there is definitely room for three more people to stay. It was so clean inside the home, and everything we needed was inside the home. We will absolutely be staying in this home again! Thank you Sherry for stopping by to check on us. We have never had someone do that before. It shows even more that you care a lot about the people that stay along with your home! Thank you again for having us!

Charming, clean, and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little house and the historic neighborhood around it. Sherry and Francesco were extremely flexible, responsive, and accommodating. They responded to all our requests and questions almost immediately - and we had a lot as our plans kept changing! They handled our misunderstanding of their pet policy with grace and ease. This was our first trip with our infant daughter, and the place was perfect - very clean and comfortable. It helped we were able to bring our dogs along, as well. The renovation is great: the house has lots of modern conveniences and style elements, like plenty of windows and an open living area, while retaining historic features like brickwork and doors. We came home with decorating ideas for our own historic house. We will definitely try to stay again if we go back to Chattanooga.

Sweet home

  • 5 of 5

The house is adorable and in a sweet neighborhood. We were less than 10 minutes from the aquarium and the house is a perfect home base for a family of four.

Excellent place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

You will not find a better property than this bungalow! It is, hands down, the cleanest, best maintained home we've ever rented. All the details are covered and a great job in restoring this home. Two bedrooms, equipped kitchen, washer, dryer, a front porch, backyard deck, and a grill. You also have pots, pans, coffee maker, coffee, sugar, etc. and a plethora of cleaning supplies! WiFi, Roku, regular tv channels, etc...all available. Nice big bathtub/shower.

Sherry was so friendly, generous and accommodating. She answered all our questions and was available if needed. Had our two dogs with us and there was a park area right outside our door where we could walk them.

The St. Elmo neighborhood is an up and coming hot spot for real estate and renovation. You'll love the Victorian charm in this very safe area. We were about a mile from the downtown St. Elmo area and about 4 miles from downtown Chattanooga. Uber was easily available. You have to try the 1885 Grill, St. Elmo's Deli, and Mr. T's pizza/ice cream. This is also where the Funicular Railway is for Lookout Mountain.

We also had to make a visit to the Vet's office for our older dog....unfortunately, looks like she has a torn ACL...sigh. If you need them, the Veterinary Care & Specialty Group is open 24/7 in downtown St. Elmo. They were great!

Don't hesitate to stay in this historic and safe area - we would definitely return!
