We are the premier large luxury property right in the middle of most everything beautiful Chattanooga has to offer! When you consider the combination of location, luxury, parking, privacy, security, comfort, size and special touches... we are simply unrivaled. Whether relaxing on the porch, swinging in a hammock, cooking out on one of the grills, watching a movie on one of the 9 flat screen tv's or just relaxing with friends and family with the appropriate amount of space for everyone... we have you covered. Our property is like a private complex in the middle of North Chattanooga -- really one of a kind.


There are 5 large bedrooms and 3 1/2 baths throughout the home, 2 "converted" formal rooms / activity centers (explained below), large modern kitchen with granite countertops and all amenities, another living area / TV room with gas fireplace, a HUGE wrap around porch overlooking a uniquely landscaped property, a screened in porch with wood burning fireplace and a bar area with wine fridge, downstairs an additional kitchenette with attached outdoor patio. The home is decorated throughout with beautiful paintings by an artist in owner's family (mother/mother in law). There are 9 flat screen TV's throughout the home with Smart TV access on almost every TV. We have an immense DVD and music library for our guests, along with billiards, table tennis and several outdoor games. We have hammocks, tree swings, fire pits and outdoor grill and outdoor smoker. There are sitting areas in different areas of the landscaped properties.


Please know that we can accommodate all group sizes and you simply need to specifically request it based on your needs and we will explain exactly how to accommodate your group, assuming the dates are available.

Home layout - 3 floors:

Top Level:

- All bedrooms are on the 3rd level of the house, with new carpeting for comfort and noise reduction.

- Large master bedroom with King Bed, huge master bath with shower and jetted whirlpool tub and large walk-in closet. This bedroom also has large flat screen TV with smart TV functions and cable.

- 2nd bedroom is a converted "master" bedroom with King Bed and a connecting double vanity bathroom with shower and tub combo. This bedroom has been uniquely painted by a local artist, with a forest scene covering the wall. This room has a small flat screen TV with cable.

- The 3rd bedroom is yet another bedroom with a King Bed, to accommodate a 3rd couple or to sleep a couple of children. This is also a large bedroom with room for 2 rollaway beds (provided upon request) and the potential to sleep 4 in this room alone. This room has lots of shelving space and a huge closet. We will have a small flat screen with DVD player in this bedroom.

- The laundry room is conveniently located near the bedrooms on the 3rd floor and you have a front loading washer and dryer at your disposal throughout the stay. All detergent and fabric softeners are provided for your convenience.

2nd level:

- A formal living area converted into a kid's center / sleeping area. We will have a large flat screen with DVD player, smart TV functions (Youtube, Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, etc...) along with the ability for your kids to hook up their gaming options to this TV (or any other TV for that matter). This room will have a Queen sized sofa bed and up to 2 mini-sofas that convert into full sized beds (sleeps up to 4 in this room)

PLEASE NOTE: I have read many reviews from other rental properties where some families are very appreciative that Xbox or Playstation is provided. We're taking a chance and going the other way on that. We're betting that many parents would prefer for their kids to focus a little bit on the vacation in a beautiful place rather than having the possible angst of having to get them off of video games so that they can get them to the river or the festival or the zipline! Thus, if you want the gaming options for the kids, please consider bringing what makes your kid happy and hooking it up to one of the many flat screens.

- The 2nd room conversion is a formal dining space into an informal living space with large flat screen TV with Smart TV functions, including Sling TV, which brings many live HD channels. This room will have another Queen sized sofa bed with a couple of comfortable chairs and an office desk. This room could be another bedroom if needed or just a sitting area separate from the kids area.

- The main living area is connected to the kitchen and has yet another flat screen tv with DVD player, smart TV, basic cable and Panasonic receiver with wonderful Bose surround sound system. We have an eclectic and immense CD music library on display to be used at your leisure with this stereo system. In addition, we have an extensive DVD collection at your disposal.

- Connected to this living area is a large, modern and fully furnished kitchen for all of your cooking and dining needs. There is a bar with wine fridge adjacent to the kitchen and a wonderful screened-in porch with wood burning fireplace attached to the dining area. We have seating for 8 around the main dining table and will provide an additional table and chairs for groups larger than 8 upon request.

- There is also a screened in porch / sitting area with wood burning fireplace connected to the kitchen area. Lovely place to sit, socialize and relax during much of the year.

- Upon request, we will provide access to a commercial treadmill and/or WaterRower, even though this usually isn't needed after walking around Chattanooga. Additionally, we will loan you 2 nice Trek bikes for free and give you information about anything you would possibly need or want to know in Chattanooga.

- Outdoors we have ample parking on our 2300 sq ft driveway and pretty much unlimited public parking on the streets around the property.

- We have sitting areas throughout the uniquely landscaped property, more than one unique fire-pit, a basketball goal and a recreation center 100 yards from the property, which has a baseball field and tennis court and wonderful children's play-ground.

Absolutely wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and comfortable. It easily accommodated our large family for a long weekend. The kitchen was well supplied. We had everything we needed. The kids loved the huge number of matchbox cars! The owner, Mike, was friendly, accommodating and went above and beyond to meet every need. We would certainly love staying here again.

Wonderful spacious house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! Visited Chattanooga with another family and there was plenty of room for everyone and the house felt like “home”. The location was perfect- centrally located- close to downtown shopping and restaurants, plus Whole Foods and Publix too- super convenient so we didn’t have to do much planning ahead for our meals. Lookout Mountain was only a quick trip away and we could literally walk down the hill to downtown and the bridge walk over the city. Mike, the owner, and his family were super friendly and accommodating and we enjoyed meeting them. We would definitely go again!

Perfect home and hosts

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent home for our family reunion, and Mike was an amazingly responsive and thoughtful host.

The home is very spacious and complete with all of the amenities. It was very warm when we visited and having an air conditioned space to regroup was a big plus.

It’s walking distance to the walking bridge and water park for the little kids. It’s also very close to a lot of restaurants, Starbucks and a Publix. It couldn’t have been better. Thanks Mike.

Wonderful house!

  • 5 of 5

We had a little elopement party with close friends and family at Mike's house and it was AMAZING. Huge, landscaped yard, huge kitchen. Surround sound in the living room for fun karaoke and music. He even had corn hole, pingpong, and pool. Can't recommend Mike's house enough.

Car: recommended

Chattanooga is basically broken up into 2 touristic locations:

1) All of the downtown from the North Shore to the South Side and Chattanooga Choo Choo.

2) Lookout Mountain, which is incredibly beautiful and has Ruby Falls, Rock City, Hang-gliding, etc...

I don't mean to leave Signal Mtn out, which is very beautiful, but it's really not a tourist destination per se.

If you've done your research about Chattanooga at all, you know that the thriving downtown is where you MUST stay. Given, you need to take a trip up Lookout and Signal mountains if you have time, but the action is all around the Walnut St Bridge, which practically touches all of the top sights in downtown Chattanooga. Pretty much everything is within 1 mile of the Walnut St Bridge. The Hunter Art museum basically touches the bridge; the TN Aquarium is 200 yds from the bridge; the North Shore connects to the Bridge; Coolidge Park is directly under the Bridge. The Ironman goes over and under the Bridge; the Head of the Hooch all takes place directly under the Bridge; The Chattanooga Lookouts stadium is 500 yards from the Bridge.

Again, you walk out of the front door of our property and walk down the hill and walk right onto the Bridge.... you don't even need to turn.

Aside from being one of the most scenic cities in the US, Chattanooga boasts an almost unending stream of festivals, sporting events, musical events, and other exciting tourist offerings just a few hundred yards from our property.

Here are some of the bigger ones:

- Chattanooga Marathon - March 6-7
