Why Annette Brun chose Knoxville
This spacious home on the grounds of Historic Westwood offers a retreat just moments from downtown and the University of Tennessee, plus just steps away from the Third Creek and Sequoyah Hills Greenways. This 1955 classic home features a spacious, yet cozy, home away from home. You'll enjoy a fully equipped kitchen, living room and sitting room, a study with flat screen television, Comcast cable, Wi-Fi, security system and parking for two cars in the carport. Plus, plenty of additional parking in the adjacent parking lot.
What makes this House unique
The house contains many of its original 1955 features, but we've updated the decor and furnishings to create a relaxing retreat that is still just 1.5 miles from the University of Tennessee campus and 2.5 miles from Downtown Knoxville. We are also located on a main bus line and steps away from the Third Creek and Sequoyah Hills Greenways.

Beautiful Part of Knoxville
It was an old fashion house. It had amenities. It was located in a spectacular neighborhood two blocks away from the greenway where I could jog or walk. The bus stop was on the corner, which was a fifteen minute ride from downtown. There were two things that the house lacked: a washer with a dryer and cords with three things on the plug. This house had ones with two expect for the bathroom. The property staff was helpful and I appreciated all they did for me.
The house was clean, comfortable and in a fantastic location. It is an older house they are in the middle of renovating so it is not beautiful, but it was everything our family needed.
We loved the charm of the Matheny house. We wil stay here again, when in Knoxville.
We loved the charm of the Matheny house. Staying there seemed like a step back in time. The house sits in a quiet, park-like area but is also incredibly convenient if traveling downtown. The property managers were wonderful in responding to any questions we had. Snacks and drinks being provided in the kitchen was an added bonus! We will stay here again when visiting Knoxville!
Room for the whole family!
This mid century home was large enough for our family of six. We even had a few more family members stop by, and we never felt crowded.
While its condition was not perfect, everything is functional. There are just a few minor cosmetic blemishes, but they add to the character of the home.
It's owned and managed by the Knoxville Heritage Society and generates income to keep up their other property, the Westwood, which happens to be just a few feet from the Matheny Cottage. You will want to schedule a free tour of the Westwood if at all possible at some point during your stay. You'll fall in love with the story of Amelia Armstrong Lutz, Knoxville's first professional female artist.
The Matheny Cottage wont disappoint you. In fact, it will take you back to a time when things were a bit slower and life wasnt rushing ahead so quickly.
We will be looking forward to our return.
Interesting Residence Centrally Located
The house was massive but choppy. A tad run down but filled with character. It was located in the historic Westwood District next to a lovely restored historic home. Spacious and charming.
Charming and historic home
We enjoyed our weekend at Matheny Cottage! This spacious home has all of the charm and quirks you would love and expect from a historic home. It was perfect for our gameday weekend, especially being so close to campus!
