This bed and breakfast is a very nice little get away. I stayed here during a visit to see the Monet Exhibit at the Hunters art Museum. It was nice and comfortable. Well recommended to stay. I would stay here again, Bedding was nice and the stay was pleasant.

Great location in the Art District overlooking the Tn. River... Friendly staff...large room with a view of the River and a very comfortable bed. Located in one of three restored homes. Complimentary breakfast in nearby coffee shop with freshly baked pastries and locally ground coffee. Close to aquarium.

My husband and I recently stayed a Saturday and Sunday night at Bluff View Inn. When we arrived, Richard promptly checked us in and walked us from the main Maclellan House to our suite in the Thompson House. He was very helpful in showing us all that the Bluff View Art District has to offer. We stayed in the Thompson... More

Stumbled across this place online while planning a trip to Chattanooga for a family funeral. It's a complex on a bluff overlooking the Tennessee River just a few blocks from downtown, but with a quiet suburban feeling. (Our house overlooked a lot of roofs, too, so don't expect a panoramic view, but you CAN see the river.) It offers a... More

We rate this B&B 3-3.5. The room was quite nice. The views were spectacular, however furniture did not allow us to take advantage of the view. The couch while a nice period piece, was not at all enjoyable to sit on. Shower head was awful and made it difficult to rinse. Sink didn't drain well. We loved the old house... More

This Inn is in the Art district but close to everything, In a sense it is not a true Bed & Breakfast because we had to go across the street to a coffee shop to have our breakfast each day even though the Inn did have a kitchen. We had a pretty room on the third floor with a beautiful... More

I chose a room on the top floor because of the view (the Moses room). We left the blinds open at night. Bad part was lots of stairs, but we knew that going in. The innkeepers were very friendly and extremely helpful with anything we needed while there plus tips on what not to miss in the area. Don't miss... More

This was our second time staying in the Bluff View Art District in Chattanooga, but our first stay at the Maclellan House, an 1889 Tudor. The Bluff itself overlooks the Tennessee River; the aquarium, most of downtown, the pedestrian bridge across the river, and the Hunter Museum of American Art are all within walking distance (if you don't mind the...

Park your car and walk. Across the river on the pedestrian bridge with fabulous views. Walk to shops and restaurants. The Hunter Museum is just steps away. This reminds me of a European City. The Inn is lovely. Innkeepers are so helpful. Breakfast was wonderful. Rent a bike if you like.

My stay was very pleasant and the customer service was fantastic. I needed to get to the airport quickly and couldn't get a cab. One of the staff members drove me to the airport! So helpful and I was able to catch my flight. Five star service!
