Rachel's Place - Signal Mtn. TN

Bedrooms 1
Space 650 sq ft
Property type cottage


About the property

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

Perfect accommodation for couple or family

  • 5 of 5

Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Exceeded my expectations. We were in town to visit family but wanted our own space. Owners are very accommodating and the cottage sits off to the side of them but still offers plenty of privacy. We had 2 kids sleep on the murphy bed in the living room area and we slept in the master bed. Cottage is clean, updated, and very roomy and the sun room offers a great extended region to stretch out even further. Off to the side offers a nice private fenced yard for kids or a small campfire. There is cable TV, good high speed internet, and a Roku streamer for which owners have some subscriptions to or log on your own subscriptions. There is a awsome playground in the woods for kids just a mile down the road. Takes a few minutes to get down the mountain and then your right at the highway.

Owner's Response: Drew and his family were very friendly, courteous, and cooperative. They left the cottage as they found it and were respectful to us and our community. We highly recommend them to any host

Nice quiet location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Nice quiet community and only 10 to 15 minutes to Chattanooga. The house had everything we needed. The piano was a real plus.

We would stay there again.

Cute place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Rachel’s place. The house was clean and really nice.

We obviously weren’t in the house too often, but when we were, we were comfortable and we had all of the amenities of home!

When we visit that area again, we would definitely stay here!

Great place to stay!

Great size for the price! All the amenities you need! Cable and Netflix! Very close to downtown Chattanooga, and the owner gives amazing recommendations for places around to eat! Only five minutes away from a Walmart and dollar general so everything you need is near! Loved the stay!

Enjoyed our stay at Rachel's Place near Signal Mountain. Quiet location with all the amenities of home. Jerry was very helpful in helping us decide on a place for dinner and we had no issues with the property. House was clean and sitting area was used for reading and meditation.
