Garden Walk Bed & Breakfast Inn

1206 Lula Lake Rd , Lookout Mountain, GA 30750 USA (Show map)

About

Just 15 minutes south of Downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee offers a quiet, peaceful atmosphere and scenic vistas from the top of Lookout Mountain. All rooms are in cottages, jacuzzi and fireplace suites available. Every room decorated around a story, song or movie, all it's own. Nestled among the mountain's 100 year old pines, and surrounded by gardens, it is a patchwork fantasy of nostalgia and whimsy - a place where bicycles and boots are planters, rhododendron are trees, kitchen gardens grow plates as well as flowers, and the sound of a waterfall can be heard as you stroll down woodsy paths.

A Place to Stop and Unwind

5 on March 10, 2015

My wife and I stayed here overnight as a stop-over before heading home. The outside has the classic late 50's early 60's motor lodge look, which appealed to our nostalgia, but the rooms were absolutely amazing. We stayed in the Magnolia and literally sank into the comfort of the king bed. Unfortunately for us, we came following weeks of snow and rain during the winter, so there was not much scenery to look at. But the outdoor seating, the trees, and the peaceful atmosphere will bring us back during the summer and fall seasons. The caretakers were inviting, interesting to talk to, and we enjoyed talking to them as we had coffee and a delicious breakfast prior to our departure.


Loved It!!

My husband and I stayed here for the weekend on our honeymoon. When we first arrived we found out the owners upgraded our room to the Magnolia Blossom Room and I have to say it was amazing! It was beautiful and comfortable. The whole place had a romantic feel from the room to the breakfast area. It was quiet and private. We enjoyed the food and the beauty of the eating area. The location is great just a few miles away from all the Lookout Mountain attractions. It was also pretty easy to find (even in the dark!) We wished we could have stayed longer and we look forward to coming here again. We had the most amazing time! Thanks Garden Walk!!


What a delight!

My husband and I recently spent a weekend at the Garden Walk with another couple, and what a delightful time we had! First off, the owners, Ed and Erma Caballero were extremely understanding when we had to postpone our stay twice, due to some of our party falling ill. They graciously rescheduled our visit each time without any hassle. And once we arrived, we were amazed at how uniquely each cottage has been decorated and the details of each room. Having a little cottage in its own setting is so relaxing! Both the Caballeros were wonderful hosts and made us feel so welcome. Breakfast each of the two days was delicious and beautifully presented. My husband even enjoyed the small poll they have on the premises. For our next stay in Chattanooga we will definitely be staying at the garden Walk again!


Sehr ruhig gelegen

4.6 on June 14, 2014

Wir hatten 2 Übernachtungen gebucht. Das b&b liegt sehr ruhig. Man kann sich hier wunderbar erholen und gut schlafen. Und ganz wichtig: man kann die Fenster öffnen (Fliegengitter ist angebracht). Frühstück außergewöhnlich, manchmal interessant zusammengestellt, aber gut. Wohltuend nach dem Plastik-Frühstück in den meistern Hotels. Gutes Restaurant in der Nähe. Wir würden wieder hier buchen; evtl. sogar für 1 - 2 Tage länger. Eindeutig eine Empfehlung. Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis stimmt.


First Stay at a BB.. LOVED IT!

5 on May 27, 2013

A friend gave me a " getaway gift" and I was blessed to enjoy 2 nights at this place. First, let me share that Erma, the owner is delightful. She wanted to ensure that everything was ideal during our stay and even upgraded our accommodations. She is also an incredible cook and I look forward to breakfast both mornings just to see what magic she and her husband would make in the kitchen. The location is serene and I came in stressed and left totally relaxed. Every suggestion we received from Erma and staff for dinner or entertainment, etc.. was spot on. I will definitely return someday.. soon. I am so happy that my first Bed and Breakfast was at the Garden Walk. All of my expectations ( high) were exceeded. Even the resident dog " Rita" was helpful, walking me to my room one evening and then hurrying back to the main house. T. Johnson


Best nights sleep ever

5 on April 02, 2012

My friend and I needed room for to ladies and three teenagers. We called all over Chattanooga, TN for a room but they were sold out. The Garden Walk was recommended to us by another person and so we called and got Erma and we were so glad she had a place for us. We didn't know what to expect but we never stopped finding wonders. It was like an adventure and then the next morning the most wonderful breakfast of chocolate chip pancakes and fresh squeezed orange juice. We can't wait to come back the bed was so comfortable we had a hard time giving up our new sanctuary to come home. Thank you Ed and Erma for a visit that we will never forget and can't wait to experience again. Rome,GA


Just as good the second time

5 on December 19, 2011

This is the second time the wife and I have stayed at the Garden Walk and it was just as good as the first time. This time we stayed in the Out of Africa room. The bed was extremely comfortable, the jacuzzi was most relaxing. A perfect place to stay if you are visiting the Chattanooga area. The breakfast was awesome and the service was perfect. Thanks Ed and Erma!


Thanks for a wonderful stay!

This B & B is highly recommended if visiting the area. From the quaintness of the adorable cottages that are offered, to the deliciously served breakfast in the morning, you can't beat it. And another plus--they're pet friendly! We are already planning our return trip for possibly a month next time! Thanks so much to Ed and Erma for their hospitality and making this a very memorable moment on our first retirement trip!


Quick night away

We stayed in the "out of Africa" room. The room was awesome and very comfortable. Many of the rooms including ours was their own cottage and provides a lot of privacy and comfort. The breakfast was nothing exciting but I would highly recommend this B&B.


Romantic Hideaway

5 on September 20, 2011

We stayed in the "Out of Africa" room. It was very nicely decorated and cozy. We loved the grounds and sat outside in the evening. It was very peaceful. The breakfast was wonderful!. Ed and Erma were really nice. They told us about a really cool place to hike not far from the B and B. We would absolutely stay there again!
