The mountain offers plenty of wonderfully romantic views of Chattanooga valley and surrounding areas.

So Charming!

5 on August 11, 2014

My husband and I stayed here during our honeymoon and absolutely loved it! The individual 'cottages', the bubbling water fountain, the beautiful landscape, the fire pit in the was all so perfectly charming. The highlight of the stay was the INCREDIBLE breakfast made by the chef. The little details made the trip perfect.....such as homemade cookies in the evening and homemade breads at breakfast. Plus, everything was immaculately clean. We will DEFINITELY be back!

A truly outstanding B&B

5 on March 08, 2014

My wife and I stayed at The Chanticleer Inn for Valentines weekend. We loved staying where there is so much history yet the accommodations are very modern and up to date. The breakfasts were terrific and Audrey & Rob were excellent host. I can't say enough good things about all the staff. Everything we needed from special request for our room or breakfast to getting us dinner reservations at a local restaurant, they took care of it all. 4 thumbs up. We will definitely be back.

Fabulous B&B

5 on May 14, 2013

Stayed at this hotel for one night. We had to leave early in the morning before breakfast would be served. Catherine went above and beyond by leaving a packed breakfast in our room in the evening so we could eat before leaving in the morning. Beautiful location, beautiful accommodations, and extraordinary staff!

Mountaintop Getaway Close To The City

4.6 on May 06, 2013

Chanticleer Inn is a historic retreat in a quiet mountaintop neighborhood overlooking Chattanooga. Upon our early evening check-in, we were greeted at reception by a delightful young woman (not the innkeeper) who showed us to our room. This process had nuances of checking-in at a hotel front desk instead of a B&B. Would have been nice to be welcomed by the innkeepers but we know that cannot always be the case. We booked one of the outlying rooms away from the main house. Cozy but not terribly cramped. My spouse & I found ourselves stepping around each other much of the time. The room was spotless but maintained a damp smell like it needed to be aired out, but the windows did not have screens so we had to keep them shut (a few bugs did make it in). We had no problems sleeping in the extremely soft, comfortable bed. The small bathroom accommodates one person, which is fine, but the standard-size tub/shower is large enough for two to have some fun. Hot breakfasts included standards such as pancakes & sausage while one morning we were treated to a fluffy, quiche-like pastry of egg, cheese & mushrooms. A selection of juices, granola cereals, fresh fruits & breads are also available. Afternoon munchies of fresh-baked cookies and scones with sweet peach tea or lemonade nearly spoiled our dinner plans each evening. The Inn sits across the street from Rock City, a popular park attraction. However, during our stay there wasn't much going on there so things were pretty quiet during the day. During the night, we experienced absolute silence. No traffic, no birds, no bugs chirping, no voices.....nothing! We lied in bed the first night listening to the nothing! (This is special experience if you're from a large city). Take time to dine at Cafe on the Corner. Drive through the neighborhood atop the mountain and see the historic old homes. Civil War buffs shouldn't miss Point Park.

Fall Getaway

5 on December 07, 2012

We stayed at Chanticleer the third week of October, 2012. The Inn was everything advertised and more! We stayed in room #5, very spacious, luxurious bedding, bathrobes, toiletries and the breakfasts were so yummy. The hosts made you feel very at home, the outdoor patio was so wonderful to enjoy a glass of wine viewing the magnificent fall colors. It was our first stay in this area and it didn't disappoint. Everyone was so friendly and the sights we visited were conveniently close and all very interesting. We will surely return to this wonderful inn. We would hightly recommend Chanticleer Inn and the Chattanooga area as will.

Very nice B&B

The Chanticleer is clean, cozy and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Lookout Mountain / Chattanooga is also a wonderful area to spend some time in if you've never been. My wife and I renewed our wedding vows there on our 10th anniversary on 1/23/03. We plan on staying at the Chanticleer again on 1/23/13 to celebrate our 20th anniversary; Looking forward to it!

Wonderful Place

4.6 on June 18, 2012

We stayed two nights at the Chanticleer, and had a charming time. The rooms were spotlessly clean, and the service and food was excellent. The smoke-free, pet-free rooms were wonderful. Allergies and asthma were completely unaffected. Loved it- We'll be back.

Perfect Getaway
