HONORED IN THE
2013 TRIP ADVISOR TRAVELERS’ CHOICE HOTELS AWARDS

Lookout Mountain, Georgia February, 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.”

“Putting this issue together is always a tough process when choosing between a number of truly great places. This year we tried something new and allowed the Outside community to help us in the decision making process,” said Outside Editor Chris Keyes. “In addition to possessing all of the great qualities that we look for in determining the quality of life, Chattanooga was a town that everyone rallied to support.”

In addition to featuring the “Best Town Ever” and the towns selected as finalists, Outside’s October 2011 issue highlights a number of cities classified as the “next-big-things,” including: Issaquah, WA; Missoula, MT; Wilmington, NC; Durango, CO; Traverse City, MI; Flagstaff, AZ; Chico, CA;Hardwick, VT and Ithaca, NY.

New Deer Park at Rock City Gardens, Lookout Mountain

April 26th, 2011 by avelient

New Deer Park at Rock City Gardens in Partnership with Amicalola Deer Park
Rock City Gardens has now completed its new Deer Park providing a new improved natural habitat for its White Fallow Deer, along with the new Fallow Deer that arrived from Amicalola baby deer expected to be born in June. Rock City anticipates the arrival of additional deer soon, aiding their goal to repopulate this diminishing breed of deer to this area.

White Fallow Deer are rare, appearing only in one out of every 10,000 Fallow Deer. These deer are able to live off their new natural habitat at Rock City, however additional food is supplemented, such as one of their favorites, corn. This is one way Rock City can cultivate its environmental stewardship.

“Enhancing and preserving our local place is part of Rock City’s mission as a part of the Green Way Forward Initiatives we are implementing,” said Rock City Director of Operations Jeff Raabe.

Amicalola Deer Park began in 2003 when Rainbow Nation Stepped in to protect and rescue a large herd of exotic deer. This 1200-acre park is located in the foothills of the North Georgia Mountains along the headwaters of the Amicalola River. It serves the needs of 150 rescued animals, primarily Sika and Fallow Deer, as a place of retreat, restoration, recreation, preservation and conservation. For more information on all they have to offer, please contact: The Chanticleer Inn Bed & Breakfast, Lookout Mountain. directly across the street from Rock City Gardens, 10 minutes from downtown Chattanooga and a mountain top away. www.stayatchanticleer.com
