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...

The room that we stayed in for two days was very clean. The overall sleeping ability was very poor. The air conditioner vented right above your head and constantly turned on and off all through the night. Sleeping without the air on was too uncomfortable. We had to turn our sheets around and lay at the bottom of the bed....

This bed and breakfast is a very nice little get away. I stayed here during a visit to see the Monet Exhibit at the Hunters art Museum. It was nice and comfortable. Well recommended to stay. I would stay here again, Bedding was nice and the stay was pleasant.

Great location in the Art District overlooking the Tn. River... Friendly staff...large room with a view of the River and a very comfortable bed. Located in one of three restored homes. Complimentary breakfast in nearby coffee shop with freshly baked pastries and locally ground coffee. Close to aquarium.

My husband and I recently stayed a Saturday and Sunday night at Bluff View Inn. When we arrived, Richard promptly checked us in and walked us from the main Maclellan House to our suite in the Thompson House. He was very helpful in showing us all that the Bluff View Art District has to offer. We stayed in the Thompson...

Stumbled across this place online while planning a trip to Chattanooga for a family funeral. It's a complex on a bluff overlooking the Tennessee River just a few blocks from downtown, but with a quiet suburban feeling. (Our house overlooked a lot of roofs, too, so don't expect a panoramic view, but you CAN see the river.) It offers a...

We rate this B&B 3-3.5. The room was quite nice. The views were spectacular, however furniture did not allow us to take advantage of the view. The couch while a nice period piece, was not at all enjoyable to sit on. Shower head was awful and made it difficult to rinse. Sink didn't drain well. We loved the old house...

I chose a room on the top floor because of the view (the Moses room). We left the blinds open at night. Bad part was lots of stairs, but we knew that going in. The innkeepers were very friendly and extremely helpful with anything we needed while there plus tips on what not to miss in the area. Don't miss...

This was our second time staying in the Bluff View Art District in Chattanooga, but our first stay at the Maclellan House, an 1889 Tudor. The Bluff itself overlooks the Tennessee River; the aquarium, most of downtown, the pedestrian bridge across the river, and the Hunter Museum of American Art are all within walking distance (if you don't mind the...
