About Steve and Sharman Sherfey
The Bear House is a beautifully restored property with the 6,500 sq ft main house and 2,000 sq ft Carriage house. We have lived here for 25 years, raising our four children and enjoying this small community (St Elmo) within the city. Our long-term plan has been to share this special property as a B&B/Short Term Rental when we retired. We opened as The Bear House in March of 2017. It has been a truly special adventure and brought great joy sharing The Bear House and meeting so many wonderful guests. Steve and I live on the 1st floor of the main house, which is completely separate from the 2nd story listings as well as the basement/lower level listing. In addition, we have the Carriage House with 2 listings. We are proud of The Bear House 1890 property and think you will have a wonderful stay!
Steve and Sharman Sherfey purchased this Apartment in 1992

Great historic neighborhood located within walking distance to shops and places to eat. The location is almost a direct shot to the River Front as well. The accommodations were comfortable and quiet. We were there during the Iron Man Triatholon and due to demand on commercial hotels (and the outrageous prices) we feel we were fortunate to find this gem.

Convenient location, beautiful property and so very welcoming!
My husband and I stayed in the Sherfey Suite for a week while in Chattanooga for work. We enjoyed every minute there and were grateful for how the hosts attended to any of our needs or questions. The city experienced a water outage during our stay - which we didn't know about - and they had bottled water and information waiting for us when we returned at the end of the day! Lovely accommodations with Chattanooga charm. We'll be back!

Kind of nice, but....
This was an ok rental. The only issue was the constant background noise in the bedroom. A/C? Couldn’t quite figure out what it was but neither one of liked it much.
Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the Bear House. I’m sorry that you experienced a strange noise during your visit. We wish you would’ve said something during your stay so we could’ve investigated and fixed it during your visit. Our HVAC is less than 2 years old, but we did look into it. The source of the noise turned out to be an item that had fallen up against the unit which was causing a vibration noise. We have removed the object and there is no noise anymore. Thank you for letting us know. We strive for you to have luxurious comfort and everything you need during your stay. Come back anytime.
