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!

  • 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,

Great house in great neighbourhood !

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house in a great location - close enough to everything but just far enough away to provide a relaxing, quiet and peaceful retreat after a busy day. It has all the amenities & comforts of home, including great beds, 3 TVs and a huge garden. Plus this is the cleanest holiday home that you will ever find - it is absolutely immaculate !

We loved being just 10 minutes from downtown Chattanooga with its riverfront, aquariums and great restaurants. Don't miss the Duck Tour, River Gorge Cruise, Incline Railway and Rock City views.

Also, Ernestene and Jim were a delight to deal with from start to finish - very friendly, efficient and informative. We can honestly say that we would not choose anywhere else when visiting Chattanooga in the future - it really is a home away from home.

Fantastic home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was fantastic! It was all incredibly clean, and the beds were so comfortable that I want to find that manufacturer here! The owner left personal touches that made everything pleasant (even lists of TV channels by the televisions). My grandson enjoyed walks around the yard searching for rabbits and blackberries. It was a great place to relax after long days exploring the very near city of Chattanooga. We loved the ease of traveling on the easy to access interstates. Be sure to visit Rock City and Lake Winnie if you stay here! Both less than 20 minutes away going opposite directions. My favorite was downtown Chattanooga's (again less than 20 minutes away) aquarium and children's discovery museum if you are traveling with kids. Loved it and would absolutely stay again!
