Private Apartment minutes from Convention Center, River Front and more
The upstairs area to this home was an unfinished open area when I bought this home. Every person, friend or family member, who came to see my new home would say the same thing when they were in the upstairs space 'I want to stay up here.' Thus began the upstairs apartment addition to my home.
Sheila purchased this House in 2005
Why Sheila chose Knoxville
I wanted all the benefits of living outside of a subdivision or a development that was still a part of a neighborhood. I enjoy just a little space between myself and my closest neighbor.

Property was clean and the kitchen was well stocked with dishes and cooking materials. Only issue is there is shooting range close by and you hear guns all day. Would not advise location if you have PTSD. Owner was easy to reach
Perfect for anything that takes you to Knoxville!
This apt is great if you are on vacation, traveling salesperson, relocating or running away from home. Kitchen has more cooking utensils than most homes. Easy to get in and out. We will definitely be back.
Thank you. Look forward to your return trips.
Home away from home
The owner Shelia was so accommodating and greeted me when I arrived. I was to cool in her home if you can believe that! I requested she turn the air off and she complied. I never cooked, however it is a full kitchen stocked with everything you need. There is a K machine which I loved to dispense water for my hot tea. There is a huge walk in closet with lots of space for everyone’s belongings. Unfortunately I did run out of hot water one morning in the shower and I found it hard to keep the floors clean with all of the cut grass on my shoes when entering and exiting my vehicle. Also there is a shooting range near the home, so if you are home in the daytime it could be annoying. Finally, I attempted to do a load of laundry and the dryer never heated up enough to dry my clothes. Otherwise her property is beautiful with a large yard for children to run and play and a backdrop of beautiful trees. It is close to all freeways and tons of eating establishments within a mile or two. I travel a lot to this part of the country and I enjoyed this place much more than a hotel.
I will be using the dryer to laundry the sheets, so I will investigate the dryer. Thanks for the heads up.
The apartment has is own hot water heater, so I am not certain why anyone would run out of hot water except for the length of the shower time. And yes, the Moose Lodge, which is about 1/2 mile from my home, has a firing range. There is NO shooting after dark or before daylight. And the shooting is not every day. But the Lodge allows members and non-members to shoot. Non-members include active police, disabled and some retired military veterans and others. The Moose Lodge and its participants are good neighbors and I am grateful for a neighborhood that allows its residents to exercise their 5th amendment rights while we all work to 'Live and Let Live' together.
Very comfortable cozy apartment!
Thank you for your stay.
Best to you and yours.
Nice home away from home
The apartment was perfect for my needs. It had all the comforts of home and was very tidy. The bed is extremely comfortable, and I had wonderful nights' sleep! I would have given this 5 stars, but the sounds of gunfire from 9 a.m. to sundown every day of the week was a bit annoying. I am also sorry to see that the price has risen significantly, making this costly for me to stay for 1 month in the future.
Thanks Patricia for your kind words. And Yes, the Order of Moose Lodge Family Center does love their firing range! And swimming pool, and cocktails too. Lol
You were a.lovely guest. And, just ask me about your future dates, I will most likely honor the same Winter rate as you are always welcome back to my apartment home.
Cozy and Safe
I have so enjoyed my stay here in Sheila's home.
This upstairs space has everything. Full kitchen, full bath, living room area with flat screen, Comcast cable, DSL hard line & WIFI connection.
The private entrance and all the space of the apartment, has made my stay into a home stay. Also, all the safety of a private home versus a motel. I am really glad I found this house and that I made this my lodging destination while I have stayed here in Knoxville.
Look forward to your return.
