Lookout Mountain, GeorgiaFebruary, 2013

The Chanticleer Inn Bed and Breakfast announced that it was chosen as one the Top 25 B&Bs and Inns in the United States by TripAdvisor in its 2013 Travelers’ Choice® awards.

Now in its eleventh year, the annual TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice awards honor the world’s best hotels, earning their distinction from those who know them best – real travelers. Unlike any other hotel honors, TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice winners are based on millions of valuable reviews and opinions from travelers around the world.

“Staying with friends, only better” TripAdvisor review December 2012
“This is an absolutely beautiful B&B! There are 18 different rooms with varying amenities, all of which are lovely. The grounds are charming, well maintained with lovely landscaping. There is impeccable attention to detail throughout from patio chairs outside each room, swings, treats in the main inn, just every possible need and want attended to already. The owners are present and live onsite, always available if they are needed. It is evident how much they love this place and that is passed on to the employees and guests. Breakfasts are delicious! The property is peaceful and quiet, just outside of Rock City. This was our first stay at a B&B, and we are hooked! Thank you to Audrey and Rob, the owners, for everything. We will definitely be back!”

“TripAdvisor is once again thrilled to recognize the world’s most outstanding hotels with the help of more than 75 million reviews and opinions from travelers around the globe,” said Christine Petersen, president, TripAdvisor for Business. “From the best bargain hotels to top luxury properties, outstanding service, value and quality are the hallmarks of our Travelers’ Choice winners.”

History comes to life on the TN River, Chattanooga

October 15th, 2010 by

It’s a gorgeous time of year to spend on the water and take in a little history.

A sailing museum floated into Downtown Chattanooga and is now docked at the City Pier.

Two Columbus ship replicas are quite a sight.

The Niña and Pinta are open to the public for self-guided tours.

You can step back into history on the Tennessee River.

Replicas of the ships Christopher Columbus sailed are docked downtown, at the city pier.

The Nina is an exact replica, build by hand with no power tools and is considered the most historically-correct Columbus ship ever built. In fact, it was used in the movie “1492” starring Gerard Ddepardieu.

The Pinta was built a little larger to accommodate day sails.

Both ships will be in Chattanooga City port through November 2nd. The public can take a self-guided tour of them from 9am to 6pm daily.

Admission is $7 for adults, $6 for seniors, and $5 for students.

The Chanticleer Inn Bed and Breakfast is only 10 minutes from downtown Chattanooga and a mountain top away.
