My wife & I have walked the Bluff View Art District a few times and we were curious about the bed and breakfasts there. On a mixed business pleasure trip we opted to try them out. The room in their Thompson House building was roomy, clean and very comfortable. Each room has separate thermostats for individual room comfort. The bathroom...

We headed to Chattanooga for a fall weekend get away and stayed 2 nights at Bluff View Inn. Everything was great. The room was clean and spacious. We ate breakfast both mornings from the buffet. The first morning there were delicious mini quiches, perfectly cooked bacon and flakey croissants. In the lobby there are soft drinks available throughout the day...

We stopped in Chattanooga on our way to visit some friends and decided to use this as a side trip, we are so glad we did. The Bluff View Inn made the visit! We did not find Chattanooga all that interesting so if it had not been for the Inn it would have been a thumbs down. The Inn is...

We stayed in the Art District in North Chattanooga and had a great time. The room was lovely (maybe the bed a bit small!). It was a nice walk away from the centre and had nice restaurants nearby. It was also very affordable and offered a lovely breakfast in the nearby Rembrandt Cafe. I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Chattanooga...

The couple that had the vision & executed it to create the Bluff View Art District area with restaurants, inns, & retail should be very proud. We stayed in the Maclellan House, Bryan room. Great view of the river (but how many people spend a lot of time looking out the window? - we did take nice photo though). Large...

You check-in at the Maclellan House, but your room may be in another near-by house. Not all views from a room or house are spectacular. Still, a walk around the area and strolling through the gardens will present views of the river. Study the layout of the Bluff View Art District so that you know where to park. There is...

Do not miss this gem on the bluffs of the river in the Chattanooga Arts District area. We stayed at one of the Bluff View Inns,at the Martin House, and had a spectacular 2 day stay. The room was extraordinarily comfortable with a back staircase to go in and out of the room. This B&B was within walking distance of...

We stayed in the Hunter Room for 2 nights and it was lovely. Very clean, big bright windows and nicely furnished. The only thing which let the room down slightly was the small bed..apart from that our stay couldn't have been better. One of the best things about this place is the location, it's in a beautiful and safe spot...

My wife and I stayed here for one night on the way back from the Smokies. We stayed on the 2nd floor in the main house. Very peaceful stay during the week. It isn't a true BnB in that you get a voucher to the nearby cafe. The house was very nice, the room was clean, spacious, and quite nice....

My mother and I stayed for two nights in the Newell room in the Thompson House. This room is on the first floor so is good for people who don't want to do steps. The room was spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. Kelley was extremely warm and helpful. Besides enjoying our lodging, it was also...
