Looooove this house!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the hilltop house in August 2016

When we drove into the community we were impressed how homely and quiet the area is but that was not as impressive as the house itself, when we walked into the house we all said wow!!!!!! This home is immaculately clean, the beds are super comfortable, we had tons of towels and everything that we needed to make our stay comfortable was provided. I would recommend this home as a getaway home to anyone...

Our Second Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at Hilltop House. The first time was during the Christmas season 2015. If ever there was a property which merited a five star rating, it is this one. We have stayed in many VRBO properties around the country and no one has taken better care of us than Ernestene and Jim. Their house is spotless upon arrival and we endeavor to keep it that way until departure because it is such an inspiration. Every convenience imaginable is provided. The quality of linens, kitchenware,furnishings etc. are first rate. As owners, Ernestene and Jim strive in everyway possible to make our visits enjoyable down to decorating the house for Christmas in the most lovely ways possible. We also appreciate their dedication to our environment by making recycling a priority and convenient to perform. If you are in the Chattanooga East area, it is a very convenient house to connect by car to any area of the city. Don't make a mistake and rent somewhere else. Hilltop House should be your destination of choice!

Fantastic VRBO with owners pride

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many VRBO properties in the past, but Hilltop House is my favorite for many reasons. The property was spotless and extremely well maintained, with plenty of room for myself, my daughter, her husband and my two young grandchildren (7 & 9). The King-size beds in both bedrooms had the most comfortable mattresses I’ve ever slept on away from home, and there was an abundance of clean bath towels. The location was perfect. Close to shopping, and easy to get to all of the attractions around the Chattanooga area. I hope this property is available, should I return to Chattanooga in the future. Thank you Jim and Ernestine!

awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time NOT staying in a hotel. And it was great. For the first time ever we had plenty of towels which was Great! The place was spotless. It was nice to not have to share a bathroom with our teen😆 It was super quiet as well. Jim and Ernestine you are amazing! Thank you for sharing your home with us. I am afraid you spoiled us!

Thanks again,

Brooke & family
