Clean & Convenient Cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

While on our fishing trip to Chickamauga Lake, we stayed at the cottage. The property had all the conveniences that one would need while away from home. Lynn & Danny have a very well maintained property that we will definitely stay at again in the future. Lynn had to replenish her antiques and pictures on the walls after we left, as items are for sale and we took advantage of this opportunity. Thank you again for making our stay feel like home. We look forward to seeing you again!!!!

Nice Get-Away Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was a last minute booking for us, and we're so very glad it was available. It was clean, had all the amenities (the washing machine is hot water only), and was really the perfect place for us. It was outside the hustle and bustle of Chattanooga, yet 40 minutes from the sites we went to see. A grocery store, Dollar General, and several restaurants were within 10 minutes of the cottage. Wish we could've stayed longer, and would like to be able to stay there again. If you're looking to stay that's just outside the busyness of city life, yet you can get there relatively quickly when you want, this is the place to stay.

Just a perfect weekend getaway!

  • 4 of 5

When one enjoys a home away from home then, they will return in the future. This is totally the case for our stay @ Lynn's. The house is simply clean, charming and comfortable with its nostalgic twist. It offered everything in the kitchen one could wish for. We had a wonderful time and Harrison offers so much on top of such quick and easy access to Chattanooga, the lake & Marina. It's was truly delightful to sit on the big front porch and relax. We are already planning our next stay! Thank You Lynn!!!

A blessing

  • 4 of 5

Staying at your house was a blessing. After awhile, it seemed like home. When we first got there, I noticed the heavy traffic on the road in front of the house. This made me not so happy. Then, I accepted it. After that, being in your home was just a blessing. My family and I played board games, watched movies, enjoyed our meals and, especially, our time together! We went into Chattanooga enough to do good stuff: Rock City, a baseball game, the Moon Pie store, good restaurants, etc. But being in your home was an important part of why our vacation was satisfying and heart-warming.

I would make one suggestion. The door on the road-side of the home has a chain lock attached to a board. When you push on the door, the board gives, and this could allow a strange person to enter the home. I would suggest you get that fixed.

Again, your home was a blessing to us!

Owner's Response: Appreciate the review. Y'all were great guests We want everyone to feel at home. Unfortunately our country road is busy when the church a block away is letting out. The great thing there are so many options to get out and enjoy the peaceful surroundings. Glad you got to adventure into Chattanooga there is so much to see Good insight on the front door latch we have made sure it was changed to our guest comfort and peace of mind. Glad y'all made it home safely and hope you will look us up again sometime
