Rachel's Place is a cottage that I remodeled for my mother when she moved here. When her dementia accelerated she could no longer live on her own. She moved into our house with us. I took a lot of time and care to make it special for her. Now I invite you to enjoy Rachel's Place. Everything is brand new. It has everything you need to provide a wonderful and relaxing base for your trip. Signal Mountain is a beautiful little community, once voted the best place in Tennessee to raise a family. Just a short drive from Rachel's House is the brow which affords incredible vistas of the Tennessee River Valley, Chattanooga, and the Smokey Mountains. It is close enough to all the attractions and activities of Chattanooga for easy access, but far enough away to have the feel of a country setting.

About Jerry Market
My wife and I moved to Signal Mtn, Tn in 2002. We are originally from Indiana. I was a pastor for 28 yrs, 14 here in Signal Mountain. My wife works part time as a Library Clerk at a local Law firm. We have two daughters, Sara and Jenny. Sara is married and lives here locally, Jenny lives in Brooklyn, NY. Rachel's Place is a cottage that I completely gutted and remodeled for my mother when she moved in with us. However her dementia has accelerated to such a degree that she cannot live by herself. So she moved in with us and we made the cottage into a vacation rental. Debi loves to decorate inside and out. I love to work with my hands building things, taking something that has no value and making it into something. I love to read, Debi loves yard sales. I know while traveling sometimes you don't feel like neighboring (country talk for getting to know people) but if you do we would like to get to know you.
Jerry Market purchased this Cottage in 2010

The cutest little cottage. Great location!
I will definitely stay again. The host left a goody basket and a sweet card. The bed was very comfortable. Great alternative to the pricey hotels downtown.
Loved the place didn't want to come home
Great place to stay!
Off the beaten path and very quiet; just what we needed to unwind for a long weekend
Close proximity to many attractions in Chattanooga
Very neat and clean home. Owner was helpful with a binder that contained phone numbers and menus for local restaurants. The McDonald's was awful for breakfast, took over 40min to get our food in the drive thru. Washing machine had sign on it not to use due to being broken, which would've been nice traveling with 2 toddlers. The shower head is very low, my husband is 6ft and had difficult showering. Kitchen was well equipped and the bed was super comfy.
Really enjoyed the location and our stay. Owners are great, and very helful. Would definitely recommend.
Great guests. Friendly, cooperative, respectful, would highly recomend this family
Nice and quiet
Our experience at Rachel's place was nice. We met with the owner, Jerry, and he is a super nice guy! It was a nice and quiet place, although it was smaller than we are used to having as far as the bedroom and bathroom. Otherwise, it was okay.
Chattanooga has a fresh water and salt water aquarium
Signal Mountain has hiking to Rainbow Lake and the Water Falls.
The Pumpkin Patch for children and McCoys Farm
