Quiet and peaceful and very clean!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The neighborhood is so quiet and the house so peaceful and clean! Our favorite part of our trip was sitting out on the back patio/balcony enjoying the warm sun and beautiful view!

Great St. Pats Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I met my brother for a St. Patrick's Weekend. We are senior citizens that loved the one level Hilltop House. It was very clean and well appointed. The kitchen was spacious and well equipped. The sunsets on the back deck are wonderful with grand view of Chattanooga in the distance. The street is very quiet and neighbors are friendly. Everything we wanted to visit was within a 20 minutes drive. Ernestene kept us informed and made our arrival and departure very easy. We will certainly stay at Hilltop House again.

A Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This was our fifth stay and second Christmas at Hilltop House. Spending such an important time away from home, it is remarkable that Ernestene and Jim can create an environment that makes everyone feel as celebratory as if you were in your own home! That is why Hilltop House is such a cherished part of our family, and the W's are every bit a part of our family too. We are truly grateful to them for every consideration they have shown to us and we cannot stress how lucky anyone is to experience a stay at Hilltop House. Don't pass up the opportunity if you need a place to stay in the Chattanooga vicinity.

Exceptional Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 adults stayed at Hilltop House while visiting relatives over the Thanksgiving weekend. Immediately upon arrival, we felt right at home and knew this lovely home was going to meet all our expectations, plus more! The entire house is fresh and spotless, the beds were very comfortable, there were plenty of towels in each bathroom and even the kitchen was well equipped so that we were able to prepare our dishes to contribute to Thanksgiving dinner! We loved the location because it allowed easy access to every where we went and the neighborhood it's in is quiet and peaceful. The only time we contacted the property owners, Jim and Ernestene, was to adjust our arrival and departure times a bit, and they responded so very graciously!!! They did an excellent job informing us of tips that were helpful for our stay and we loved the way they had the lights set to come on at dark, so when we arrived at the end of the day, we were welcomed with lights to see our way in rather than darkness!!! We recommend staying at Hilltop House and will certainly return ourselves in the future! Thank you, Jim and Ernestene, for making this wonderful place available for travelers like ourselves : )

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife, sister and brother-in-law truly enjoyed our stay. Jim and Ernestene made us feel at home and took care of all our needs. Being close to all the attractions was convenient. We especially enjoyed the Aquarium, Look Out Mtn, and all the thrift and antique stores. We would recommend staying with Jim and Ernestene to all who want a quiet, clean and enjoyable experience.
