Great Hospatility

5 on January 08, 2014

We had a great stay at the Olde Towne Bed & Breakfast. My wife, myself, and our foreign exchange student stayed with Earl and Susan on the 22nd of December and had a wonderful time. When we first arrived things were a little hectic due to a last minute change they had with other guests, but even so they made us feel at home and welcome. Susan was especially gracious to our foreign exchange student and made her feel special, and Earl cooks up the best breakfast I have ever run into while traveling. I highly recommend visiting these two whenever you are in the Chattanooga area.


1st Anniversary and Blown Away

5 on September 09, 2013

Our 1st anniversary was truely momentous. We arrived to a sweet Earl (who was flying solo due to his other 1/2 being out of town for the weekend we were there) who showed us to our room upstairs and told us to make ourselves comfortable. In the giant room, we had a TV and vhs/dvd player, a coffee maker, and a bottle of wine as well as as a small bundle of precious fresh flowers from their garden and a couple pieces of dark chocolate next to the bed. The house is exactly what you picture for a bed and breakfast-eclectic and shabby-chic.BY THE WAY- NONE of their pictures are updated on their page- they have a GIANT front porch and pergola out front that is breathtaking and adds to the beauty of the home! (earl said they aren't too tech-savvy and havent updated it in a couple years) so the pictures on their website certainly do not do it justice! Breakfast in the mornings were mouthwatering- Spinach grits, carmelized onion fritatta, poached eggs, bacon and sausage, two types of fresh made bread, mini muffins and cinnamon rolls, pomegranate juice and orange juice, etc. And every bit of it was DELICIOUS! AND FRESH! AND HOMEMADE!!! On top of that, we were made to feel so welcomed - Earl even had couons for local restaurants laid out for us and their code for their Country Club he said we were welcomed to use. We cannot wait to go back! We absolutely love it here I wish we had had more time!!


Delightful!

5 on September 24, 2012

This was a spur of the moment getaway for us. As it was for a Saturday night, hotels in downtown Chattanooga were booked so I started looking a bit further away. Sorry to say, I had never heard of Signal Mountain, TN, but I know it now and will never forget it. The owners of the B&B were very gracious hosts and the evening stroll around the historic district was absolutely beautiful. Most the homes were built around 1920 and it is obvious the owners all take great pride in maintaining these beautiful homes & gardens. The B&B was comfortable and the owners treated us like family. Highly recommend, but I wouldn't take small children for fear they would break or ruin some of the many very valuable art pieces or someone who cannot climb stairs to the bedrooms. Breakfast was delicious, and the owner's recommendation to eat dinner at GinGins was superb and very reasonably priced. Stayed September 2012


Weekend stay

5 on June 19, 2012

Very nice folks, the rooms were unique, clean, and comfortable. I did not expect a gourmet breakfast but that's certainly what we got. I would recommend this place to all who want to spend time in the Chattanooga area, but don't want to pay the overpriced charges found downtown.


Charming B&B

5 on November 21, 2011

My husband and I have stayed at Old Towne on two different occasions. I absolutely love historical homes and was excited to find this charming B&B only 1 hour from where we live. Susan and Earl are warm and welcoming. They went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. The breakfast was wonderful!! There is a local Italian restaurant just down the road that we adore! It has the best authentic Italian cuisine I have ever tried! I would definitely recommend Signal Mountain, and Old Towne B&B, for your next romantic getaway! The Taylors

Last Minute Getaway

5 on April 10, 2011

Old Towne was such a relaxing last minute getaway! Earl and Susan were so nice and very accommodating as we called last minute while in Chatt to check if any rooms were available! The breakfast was more than amazing!!! The rooms were very clean while the decor added a nice touch. Some great hiking trails are also located less than a mile away. I will definitely be staying again and would recommend to anyone!


Relaxing Christmas Getaway

5 on January 13, 2011

Our stay at the Old Towne Bed and Breakfast was the most relaxing getaways I've experienced in a very long time. My husband , daughter and I felt pampered during our stay. Because of a medical emergency with my husband, my daughter and I stayed an additional three days. After being at the hospital late, we elected to sleep in and imagine our surprise to awake to a basket of freshly made bread, jelly and fresh juice. This was one of the extra caring touches that are part of the excellence of the Old Towne Bed and Breakfast. I can't wait to stay there again when we are in the area! Ellen from Cincinnati, Ohio
