We love our home. It has the quirks and charm of any house built in 1940, like the squeak of the hardwoods as you walk on them. The bathroom colors and fixtures reflect the age of the home and have beautiful floor to ceiling tile. We have tried to make our home as cozy and comfortable as possible without altering the original character and we hope you enjoy!

Guests have access to main floor and second level as well as the property grounds. The unfinished basement is not for guest use please for guests' safety. This is a 24/7 access listing. Once booked a door code will be provided the morning of check.

We are located just a few miles away and will be available to offer assistance during the day and in the evenings to answer any questions if needed.

The house is in a quiet area next to the University of Tennessee. Walk to brunch restaurants and grab a beer at nearby bars. Run along Third Creek and Tennessee River, visit Tennessee Botanical Gardens, and attend games at Neyland Stadium.
