Stayed in the Moses Wells room and the view was amazing. The room is small but quaint, and on the third floor and I didn't realize how tired I was till I climbed the stairs. The lady who checked us in is very efficient and knowledgeable. The breakfast OK, nothing special. Wish we could have eaten in the Macellan House,...

We stayed at the Bluffview Inn recently and had such a nice time that we made another reservation before we left. The hospitality was great. The area is perfect for walking. My wife enjoyed the shops which are like art galleries. There are several very good restaurants in the Bluffview complex.

Just returned from celebrating my wife's Birthday by taking her away for a couple days at the Bluff View Inn. Stayed in the Bryan Room of the McMillan House. The room was very spacious and the bedding was comfortable. The bath was a bit dated but it goes along with the ambiance of the home. The sink and shower drainage...

This was our Christmas Eve destination and it was very nice. The staff was well prepared and the list of information regarding the property was quite thorough. My wife especially enjoyed having the gas fire place in the room and eventually O had to turn it off in order to fall asleep. The breakfast was very good and include a...

This is a lovely collection of old homes that now serve as a B&B and we have stayed here twice now. We have had the same beautiful room - actually two rooms plus a kitchen in the Thompson House. The same bathroom light that was out last year - yep, still not functioning. Also, there were three of us staying...

This was our first visit to Chattanooga and our weekend stay in the Bluff View Inn was perfect! The Bluff View Art District has beautiful scenery and landscaping, an art museum, galleries, gift shops, a fine dining restaurant, a nice Italian restaurant, a gourmet coffee house, an artisan bakery and of course the Inn - three beautifully restored turn of...

We stayed at the Bluff View Inn right after Christmas to celebrate our anniversary. The Inn is in the Arts District and is a great location. It is a collection of buildings and includes a coffee shop (Rembrandt's where you get breakfast), Tony's (Italian) and the Back Inn Cafe. We booked last minute so I am sure our choices were...

We stayed in the Bryan Room at the Maclellan House (the Bluff View Inn is actually a collection of three houses). The view from the room was fantastic, and we loved having the gas fireplace. Staff was very friendly, and eager to please. Breakfast was great, and I especially loved the pastries. The room itself was in need of a...

I spent one night here for my wedding anniversary. I liked that the inn is walking distance from nice restaurants and has good views. The facilities are nice also and the breakfast worked great at the coffee shop. Most of the staff I encountered were very friendly and helpful. Check in was not great, the employee was rude to me....
