About Jackie Ryan

I grew up in Chattanooga and really enjoy coming back home so it seemed logical that I should buy a house there. There's so much for all four of my children to do there and so much to see and the location is so awesome that I couldn't resist!

What makes this house unique

Charming Bungalow is located in historic area in the process of restoration and revitalization, on a hill with a wonderful view of the city at night.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Me and my girlfriends stayed here for a women's getaway and we had a wonderful time! The decorations were beautiful and all of the extra's such as snacks and chocolates were such a special treat! There were fresh flowers on the table that looked like they had been taken from the garden and that was really nice! The bedding and beds were all very plush and the extra air conditioner and fans were a treat in that hot time of year! All in all it was a great weekend and we would definitely stay there again!!! Thanks for everything Ms. Jackie!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

House was very roomy. We had 10 people and we had tons of rooms. Close to everything. If we are ever back that way we will stay again. Our host offered a clean cozy home and was very responsive to any questions we had. You will be very happy if you decide to stay at Mrs Jackie's home.

Neat Clean and very Handy to the down town and Lookout Mountian

  • 4 of 5

No surprises . This home is the very thing our lg family was looking for . Very convenient location to down town, AT&T Field and Lookout Mountain. Nice quiet neighborhood and well decorated. The kitchen handled all of us no problem. Front Porch was a great place to sit and converse. Cable TV and Internet A-OK. Washer and Dryer a plus with Full Size Range and modern kitchen appliances. Thanks VRBO The Taylor Family...

Nice house, comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This was a good rental. It is close to everything. Only reason it didn't get 5 stars is that the hot water in the bathroom off the kitchen was iffy and we couldn't figure out the wi-fi. One of us discovered on the last day that it works if you let it run for about 8 minutes.

The neighbor was very nice and fun to talk to. We enjoyed the visit here.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

I've rented from Mrs. Ryan for over 5 years and every time I do I am not only not surprised but completed elated. She makes sure the homes are welcoming, clean, and some of the best decorating I've seen in ages. I'm so grateful to her for making my vavation experiences simple and enjoyable for my family

Favorite place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in several of Mrs. Ryan's properties and this one is by far my favorite. It's spacious, beautifully decorated, and fully stocked. We were pretty close to all the attractions we wanted to see and it was easy to navigate through the neighborhood. I felt pretty comfortable and safe. I will definitely try and book this property every time I'm in Chattanooga

I would stay again if the outlets, fan and wasp problem was corrected.

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful home and large enough for a big family. However, several outlets did not work. The upstairs bedroom was hot and stuffy and the fan did not work and had wasps in the fan. Every room had a T.V. however only two of them worked. There was no wifi password identifier we had to scope out the box and find it. The neighborhood surrounding the home was less than desirable but felt safe enough.

Owner's Response: I'm quite happy that the renters thought the home was beautiful and large!! The information on the wifi, fan and tv's are in the rental agreement and if they had read the agreement they would have avoided any problems and I never got the first call from the renters with questions about how to work any of the above. The home is over 100 years old and there are a couple of outlets that just will not work. There are 6 tv's in the home and all but one worked great as of today. I wish I had gotten a call or an email to give them instructions or to give me the opportunity to get my property manager out to the home to remedy any issues right away! I certainly would have taken care of anything that was actually wrong or needed explaining. The neighborhood is perfectly safe and is in the middle of redevelopment (four homes on my block are being renovated right now) and the only issue is one or two of my neighbors just don't keep up their homes like I do. That is the only honest negative about staying at this "Beautiful and Large" home and that is something that does not impede having a wonderful vacation!
