Guestbook comments from the owner

"We just returned home from our wonderful week-end stay at your charming home on Lookout Mt. It was the perfect place for us to be to fully enjoy our son's wedding at the Fairyland Club. So much nicer than staying in a hotel in town! We would love to come back when our week-end is freer to take in all of the sights. Thank you for sharing it with us."

Quaint Mountain Home in Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Stayed at this property at the end of September 2017 for a friends wedding at the Lookout Mountain Fairyland Club. The location was perfect for all the wedding festivities. It was close to the venue and next door to the bed and breakfast that the wedding party stayed at. The home is directly across the street from Rock City so we walked over there one afternoon of our stay. It's about a 10 minute ride down the mountain to the suburb of St Elmo which is a fun funky little area with good eateries.

The home itself is in good condition and had great amenities in the kitchen which you don't often find in vacation rentals. The decor in the house is dated but fits the quaint style of the tudor. The yard is gorgeous with tall trees and a nice deck to enjoy coffee, cocktails or meals.

I'd definitely stay here again.

Good location, building and amenities need work

  • 3 of 5

Location was great for our stay. Was there for the World Ironman-70.3 champs and the main hill was right outside. Great area for walking, cycling and tourist adventures like Rock City, Ruby Falls and the Incline tram. Internet was good.

The house itself is sub-par. The showers take about 3min to heat up, temp upstairs is uncomfortable, there are cracks in the walls and floors. A windy wet night on our last night had bits of the ceiling fall off. Furniture is old and tired. TV must be 20years old and too small to watch from anything but the cloest chair. Beds were okay. Max 6person accommodation.

However, if you are looking for a cottage retreat this may be the quirky experience you are looking for.

Cozy Cottage with awesome location

  • 5 of 5

We loved it and will definitely be going back. We loved sitting outside and enjoying such a nice yard and location. We walked to Starbucks for coffee every morning. (next door) The neighborhood is perfect for long walks or a run. Safest place on earth. I know because I used to live there. The bathroom and dressing area was very large and nice. The house is 1920's vintage and maybe not for everyone but it was our dream house. Plus, the price was great. Can't wait to go back. Thank you for sharing your property

Nice old house. Good location. Needs some upkeep.

  • 2 of 5

This is a nice old house but it needs a lot of updates. It seems no one is taking care of it. The ceiling upstairs is peeling and the ceiling in the laundry room has mold on it, which probably means the roof has leaked. The back screen door does not have a knob and will not latch. It was hard to open. The beds upstairs were very hard. Not good to sleep on. The living room did not have curtains or blinds so not very private for sleeping. It is in a good location, but it needs some TLC.
