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

We stayed in the Martin House, in the CG Martin room. The views of the river are fantastic! The bedroom is roomy, with a gas fireplace and a porch that allows you an outside experience. This room is in the top floor of the Martin House, a restaurant is on the two floors below. This means you can hear the... More

Wonderful location and setting. Descriptions of the art district & Riverwalk spot on. We stayed in the Martin House in a river facing room with fireplace. Room was nicely furnished & decorated. Bathtub needed to be refinished: the wear makes it look dirty. Included breakfast was good, but not as extravagant as other B&B's at this price point. We had... More

Love this place. I friend from Chattanooga recommended it, and we were delighted that we were able to stay there. The Anna Houston room in the Martin House has lots of windows, so you get to enjoy lots of sunlight and views of the river. And what a perfect location. We parked our car when we arrived and walked everywhere... More

My husband and I took a mini-vacation to Chattanooga and stayed in this lovely old home. We had a 3rd floor suite with a wonderful view of the river. It was within walking distance of everything we wanted to see--the Hunter Museum, art galleries and the pedestrian bridge. Hostess provided us with good restaurant recommendations.

We stated 1 night at the end of a road trip, on the way back to Atlanta. Great location and nice and clean but due to the age of the property the floorboards all creaked and every time you moved in bed it was really noisy. The matress springs felt old and we didn't get a great night's sleep, sadly.... More
