Welcome to Gloria’s on Exchange, a cozy home-away-from-home located in a quiet historic neighborhood, just walking distance from Downtown Union City, Tennessee. The bones of this two-bedroom cottage date to 1910, but this little house has received a loving renovation. 1980s-vintage “Cargo” furniture and numerous custom-made, one of a kind wood pieces give it a rustic warmth, but this is a fully wired, completely modernized space, with smart technology, wi-fi, and “Ring” doorbell security. Each of the main rooms—two bedrooms and a large living area—include electric heaters with simulated fireplaces for warmth and ambiance. The master bedroom includes a comfortable queen bed while the other offers two twin beds. Each bedroom has a full bath (tubs include dual-headed showers), stocked with towels, hair dryers, bath amenities, and plenty of hooks. Throughout, Gloria’s wall art, almost all original photography, reflects the owners’ love of travel and their devotion to America’s national parks. A tasteful dining area, which features images of area attractions, opens onto a spacious deck that is equipped with a gas grill. A well-appointed kitchen offers you the option of dining in with a full range of appliances and utensils as well as spices, oils, and ice. A coffeemaker and locally-roasted coffee are also supplied. Gloria’s on Exchange is ideally located with easy access to shopping, restaurants, and several area attractions.
Quiet getaway in the heart of downtown Union City, TN.

About Julie Hill
David Coffey and Julie Hill are both professors and department chairs at the University of TN at Martin. In an effort to both protect their property and help their neighborhood, they have bought several vacant lots in downtown Union City. The property at 622 Exchange St. was rented for more than 20 years by our neighbor Gloria. The owner was aging and wanted to sell. We eventually ended up buying the property and fixing it up for a VRBO. We named it after our great neighbor Gloria.
Julie Hill purchased this House in 2017
Why Julie Hill chose Union City
Gloria's is not a large house, but quite charming and very "tricked" out with technology and more. It has Google Home and Chromecast with free high speed wifi. There is a great deck and grill space to hang outside and enjoy a beautiful meal together. Each room has an ambient fireplace and there is an assortment of oils to choose from in the diffuser in the living room.
What makes this House unique
David and I have a goal to visit all of America's National Parks and we just love to travel in general. We have tried to bring our guests a little taste of the variety in America's National Parks as we are always a bit astonished to see so few American residents in these glorious parks. We want to encourage our guests to see America's National Parks!

Awesome home. Close to downtown.
Everything was in good condition. The Google home is a nice touch. We had an issue with a door hinge and they fixed it same day. The owners are wonderful to work with. We left clothes in the dryer and they let us know as soon as they found out. We were still in town and able to go back and pick them up.
Great place to stay.
We enjoyed the stay at GOE. It was cozy and warm. It helped us being able to have our fur baby with us on this trip. Thank you for providing a wonderful place to stay!
Thanks so much for the review Jenny! I am so glad you all had everything you needed and were able to be close to the action for your family’s occasion! You are welcome anytime. Julie and David
Very nice clean home away from home. . Highly recommend it . Very accommodating.
Julie and David have a very nice home. They work hard to keep it clean and the yard groomed. The location is in a nice neighborhood . I absolutely loved it. It is so very much better than staying in a hotel room. Julie and Dave did not forget anything when it comes to accommodating you.... Very nice people and I look very forward to staying and seeing them in the future. Thanks for everything.
You are such a sweetie pie. Thanks for writing this. We loved having you and Bob as guests of GOE. You two are super thoughtful - the house was immaculate and you even washed the linens? Get out! #mosthoughtfulguestsever
We certainly hope to have you stay with us in January and February.
Thanks for the review and looking forward to the next time we see you all.

Perfect weekend getaway in West TN!
We had a lovely weekend getaway! I stayed at Gloria on Exchange with my husband and his parents. We wanted to stay in Union City because our trip was planned around the Discovery Park of America and Reelfoot Lake. We ran across this house and booked it right away! The house is adorable and looks just like it does in the pictures! Julie and David are great to work with and have taken a lot of pride into putting this house together. I loved all of the photography and other decor in the house. I will say our favorite part of the house was the assortment of board games. We played board games each night we were there and laughed until we were almost in tears. If you need somewhere to stay in the Union City area please make sure you check here for availability first! You will not regret it!
You are just the most thoughtful person. David and I are really grateful for this review!!!!

Lovely oasis in northwest Tennessee
What a gem Gloria’s on Exchange is! Where do I start? Its history? Its idea? The conception of that idea? The execution of the desired upgrades? Any of those would do, but let me just say this is a comfortable, cozy, beautifully furnished cottage perfect for a night or a week if the traveler desires. Modern, tasteful interior design themes perfectly done. The photographic art of National Park scenes was impressive, but the giant frozen Reelfoot Lake print in the dining room was our favorite. Clean, clean, clean! Well furnished kitchen. Google Play music and lighting. Comfortable beds. My family and I are excited about our next trip to the area so we can stay at GOE again!
Thanks for the thoughtful review! We sure enjoyed having you and the grandkids stay with us and will look forward to some in person quality time whenever you all return. So glad you enjoyed GOE and thanks again for the feedback, Facebook video, and more. You are so kind.

Great combo of comfort and technology!
We had a wonderful weekend at Gloria's on Exchange. The great experience actually started about 3 days before our trip, when my first VRBO cancelled our reservation at the last minute. I was in a panic to find a place to stay, and Julie responded to my booking request within an hour - I was so relieved!
As far as the property itself goes, there is plenty of parking, a nice open lot next to the home (also owned by Julie and David, so there's plenty of space for running around/yard games), and the street is nice and quiet. The home has convenient techy updates, like keypad access and Google Home (we had fun "Hey Google"-ing all weekend), but most importantly it was a cozy, comfortable place to be. All the appliances (including a gas grill) are new and work great, the place was immaculately clean, and Julie and David even left a fun array of treats on a cake stand for us to sample. We brought food to make all our meals, and were pleasantly surprised to find the kitchen well stocked with everything we needed to cook, including new sharp knives! Oh, and there was GOOD coffee supplied - both Seattle's best and a locally roasted brand that was delicious.
Julie and David live behind the property, so were readily available if we needed something, but left us to our own devices during our stay. Julie was very helpful with tips regarding the things we'd already planned for our trip, and gave us suggestions for new things to explore on our next venture to NW TN as well.
In short...highly recommend this spot!
