About Yvonne Terney
Travelers since 2015 but hosts since September 2017, Yvonne and her husband Jim enjoy life, family, friends and meeting new people. We enjoy diversity and cultural experiences of all kinds. Learning about other cultures has always been important to us. This is expressed in our love of traveling to London, Paris, Spain, Kenya, Haiti, Jamaica, Japan & Sri Lanka. But closer to home, we are blessed with three grown children, two fantastic daughters-in-law, an awesome son-in-law and "currently" six beautiful grandchildren :) ....WAIT....#8 is on the way!!! We are the happiest when we are hosting family gatherings around a meal; whether in the dining room, an outdoor yard party or hot dogs and s'mores around the campfire. Throughout our many years, we have both work in service oriented jobs because we enjoy taking care of and providing help to others. Most of all we are blessed with sharing life together for almost 35 years ........ and we still love one another immensely.
Yvonne Terney purchased this Apartment in 2001
Why Yvonne Terney chose Flintstone
Our home is located in rural Flintstone but only 10 miles from Chattanooga, TN. We can sit on the back-porch while listening to the crickets and cows. We are located away from the hustle and bustle of town but only a 15 minutes drive to many great restaurants, outdoor sports & events, and many wedding & music venues. Our home is an old farm house built in 1922 with a very comfortable and homey feeling and we want to share with others. We enjoying meeting people and especially want to enhance their vacation/stay by making The Roost comfortable and clean.
What makes this Apartment unique
Our home/apt. is on an acre of property, which is plenty of room for our grandchildren to enjoy. With it being an old farm house, it's not perfect but it's our home. We're not afraid of roller skates on our wood floors, mud pies on the walkway or chalk art on the driveway. We enjoy art work and the beauty of creation with many plants (in the summer :) as expressed with our sculptures and in our walkway. We also have a beautiful view of Lookout Mountain.

We visited several sites during our short stay due to everything being so close. The owners were wonderful and helpful. The only thing that made our days not so great was the fact the room is in the attic type space of the house. Look at photos very carefully. My husband is tall and could barely walk along the one side of the room ( hit his head a lot).
Yvonne & James went above and beyond to make our stay so very pleasant.
Renting this property was an Awesome experience. They are so centrally located to everything. And what we weren’t sure of they knew what it was that we were looking for and we able to give us directions. We definitely recommend renting from Yvonne and James...
Home away from home
Such a very nice place to spend a few days away from our usual life. Yvonne is a very nice host!🥰�. She welcomed us to her home and showed us things to do around town. Our room smelled good, spotless and well furnished and decorated. The refrigerator is stocked with bottled water and orange juice. There are biscottis, crackers, and oatmeal available also. The coffee ☕️ was very good too!
Jim and Yvonne’s world explorations made us connect with them as we exchanged our own travel experiences.
I told Yvonne that they have a very big heart and strong faith to welcome strangers (like us) to their beautiful home. We will definitely be back!
P.S. Fergie (the brown lab) is a very sweet dog.
The owners communicated with us in detail. They were so welcoming and greeted us as soon as we arrived. The Roost is a sweet little place that was just perfect for what we needed this weekend. Everything we needed was included, down to the microwave popcorn!
We will be back to "Roost" again soon!
Lovely place and in a great location.
What a gem!
I couldn’t have prayed a better place to stay into existence.
You were such wonderful hosts and thought of everything to make The Roost a home away from home.
