Alpine House Bed & Breakfast is a beautifully restored turn-of-the century home. It was built in 1898 and named Alpine House by the McGee family. Located on the tallest peak of Sand Mountain, at the junction of Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia. Sit on the front porch and look over breathtaking Long Island Valley. You'll overlook the Tennesse River, hear train whistles in the valley and watch eagles flying below you. You will be able to see eight cities, some in Tennessee and some in Alabama. Enjoy breathtaking sunsets, with brilliant city lights after dark and a cloud filled valley in the mornings.

My family of four stayed here for a night and my son didn't want to leave! He wanted to live there if that tells you anything. The southern hospitality of these sweet ladies cannot be beat. They welcomed my family with open arms and we felt right at home. The view was one of the most amazing one we had ever seen and the community was the most friendliest that we have met! You must stay here if you are planning to come to the area. Make sure you grab a bite at Js Hole in the Wall. Absolutely delicious!

The Alpine House is a lovely historic home lovingly restored with a breathtaking view and warm, generous hosts. We stayed in the Blue Room and loved the view and porch. The jacuzzi and gas fire, as well as decor made it feel luxurious and cozy at the same time. Breakfasts were scrumptious with lots of good Southern cooking hospitality. The hosts entertained us with the home's history and local flavor. Descendants of the home's original owners live nearby. Picturesque towns nearby are fun to explore and Chattanooga is a short ride away for those seeking more activities. We enjoyed just being on Sand Mountain, soaking up the history and hospitality. We highly recommend Alpine House and look forward to returning soon!

Lovely historic home, spacious rooms, amazing view topped off with a mouthwatering southern breakfast and gracious owners who make you feel like family. This place is a gem! We will definitely be back. It's the perfect place to stay if you want to enjoy the outdoor life in Chattanooga yet avoid the bustle of downtown.

Came across this little gem on bed and breakfast website. Looking at random for a place to spend our 1st anniversary, who knew that such an elegant and heartwarming place existed in our own backyard. From the time we arrived and were greeted by the neighbor next door, sitting around the breakfast table, making new friends, and dancing under the moonlight on our own private balcony, we were in heaven. Food was outstanding and the accommodations were from a romantic period of days gone by. Whether you are traveling 50 miles or 500 miles don't you dare let this place slip through your grasp. Reasonable priced for memories and friends that will last a lifetime.

For our honeymoon, all we wanted was an escape. Alpine house was perfect. The view is beyond compare, and there are multiple comfortable porches. We stayed "home" all day the first day and just relaxed and read books while enjoying the beautiful view. The drive to Chattanooga was easy when we wanted to go out to do something the next day. Kristie and Eulene were wonderful hosts. We had delicious breakfast and delightful conversation every morning. It was like meeting long-lost family. They went over and above to make sure we had a wonderful stay. We will definitely be returning.

Quite charming with southern hospitality. Everything was quite peaceful and relaxing and the view was better than an ocean view. The hostesses were quite hospitable and friendly. Breakfast just melted in your mouth!

This was such a wonderful and restful getaway in the mountains of northeast Alabama. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the view from the balcony was spectacular! The innkeepers are very friendly and accommodating in every way. We could not have asked for a nicer place to get away, especially on such a short notice. Would recommend highly and we hope to return to Alpine House in the near future.

This place is exceptional! I stayed for two nights - July 12 & 13. The room, large in room jacuzzi, and the view were all wonderful. The hostesses are great too! Highly recommended for a relaxing retreat from the everyday stresses of life!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here on June 21. The view is beautiful and breakfast was fantastic. Don't miss the sunset! Enjoyed conversation with our host and her well travelled neighbor who makes the most awesome Belgium waffles.

Large comfortable rooms with a view of stunning sunsets and night lights in the valley complimented by country breakfast and amazing inn keepers. Perfectly perched on the bluff overlooking TN river valley yet only minutes away from local arts, music and eateries and the Chattanooga Aquarium. Truly a get-away to relax and rejuvinate.
