My husband and I enjoyed our 3 night anniversary trip to the Bluff View Inn. We stayed in the CG Martin room, and enjoyed the lovely room and awesome private balcony over-looking the river. Our room was very comfortable, clean, and cool. Since we were there during the week, we didn't get to experience the gourmet breakfast in the Maclellan... More

If you are visiting Chattanooga then this is the place to stay! Not only is the service great, but you are in nestled in the arts district which consists of a wonderful cafe called Rembrandt's, charming restaurants and one of the best views in downtown Chattanooga. This area has the most character of any area I saw so we will... More

It was a pleasure to stay in the cozy artistic Bluff View village overlooking the TN River. Downtown Chattanooga was easily accessible by foot or bicycle. Didn't use our car once during our long weekend visit. This was our first visit to a B&B and it was much more personable than a typical hotel. We stayed in the Frierson room... More

We were surprised by our first contact with staff; NOT friendly! Our room was very nice but the Inn had a party on the patio right below our room. Breakfast was provided at the coffee shop in the complex but it was pretty limited! Parking was an issue, while we stayed here, because the River Bend Music Festival was going... More

I have to start this review with a statement of bias - I am reviewing my own wedding. That being disclosed, the venue, people and food at the bluff view inn made my wedding a most memorable event for friends and family alike. If you passing through Chattanooga or staying for few days and you want to see why everyone... More

We arrived the first day and met Kelley the innkeeper who oriented us not only to the property but the Bluff View area. She was very helpful, pleasant and polite. Our room was just as advertised. We stayed in the CGMartin room at the Martin house. We loved our balcony. It was large enough for several chairs and a small... More

The hotel is spread over a number of buildings which is fine but whenever we rang the office there was never anybody there so we had to spend time walking over there. Parking can be a problem but except one night we managed to squeeze in somewhere in the grounds. The room was very good and large and we were... More

The artgreeteict where this is located is quaint for being located in the city. Close by downtown attractions. Upon arriving we were greeted, if you can call it that. No smile no enthusiasm. Very cold. We were shown our room and nothing else in the house. Our room was large with hard wood floors. Pretty. The bathroom was old to... More

Three old mansions on the bluff next door to the Hunter Art Museum, redesigned as bed and breakfast inns. Beautifully appointed, in a very very walkable location. The outfit roasts its own coffee, makes their chocolates, bakes their breads. A coffee shop and a pair of restaurants round out the property. We did not try the restaurants but the coffee... More

Me and my husband just came back from a weekend stay at the Bluff View Inn (The Maclellan House) and we completely loved this place. The house is beautiful and the rooms were very nice, clean, and warm. What you see on their website is what you get. I was looking for a nice/romantic place and The Bluff View Inn... More
