About Peggy Petrey

We are both full-time artist living in the Southside Historical Neighborhood of Chattanooga, just blocks away from the Mitchell House. In 2007 we chose Chattanooga as our new home-base after having searched for property from San Diego to Asheville.

We fell in love with Chattanooga and it's central location. Once we heard of the redevelopment plans for the Southside area into an arts district we knew we had to move here. We purchased a metal industrial building on Main Street and created a wonderful artist live/work space. The space is perfect for us and allows is the room we need to create and flourish.

Peggy Petrey purchased this house in 2009

Why Peggy Petrey chose Chattanooga

Initially we bought the home for our parents, however they only needed the downstairs unit. Since the property is located downtown where all the festivals, sports activities, art events and tourist attractions happen, it made total sense to open the upstairs for others to enjoy a home-like setting while visiting Chattanooga. The house is in a diverse neighborhood that has undergone many changes in the last ten years.

Our neighbors are all friends and welcoming to all. If you sit on the porch for a few moments don't be surprised if one of the neighbors introduce themselves to you, we're a friendly bunch.

What makes this house unique

We love staying in vacation rentals when we travel. Often times we the amenities are minimal and we find ourselves wishing we had a tv, the internet or a few board games to play. We wanted to provide a space that has everything you will need, making your stay that much more enjoyable. You'll find that we've tried to think of everything that you might need in case you decide to stay inside on a rainy day and if we haven't thought of everything we are open to suggestions!

Absolutely Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

This property is fantastic! Let me cover the basics first! I had no problem booking the property and communication with the owners was great! They answered all of my questions (quickly) and they obviously care about making your stay comfortable. John and Peggy provide sooooo much information about the surrounding area and places to go. This place is in a great location. You can walk everywhere! We really appreciated the information that was provided with hints and tips about places to go and their location. We had never been to Chattanooga, so it was very helpful.

When we arrived, it was easy to park and access the property. Again, John and Peggy made it simple but were more than willing to meet you, if necessary. It was extremely clean despite it having been occupied by another traveler earlier that day. Everything was spotless and believe me, I freak out if I see any remnants from a prior guest. It has everything you need in terms of amenities. From the towels, bedding, plates, etc...., everything is of high quality. You feel like you are in a resort. I LOVED the decor. It is as described - a hip southside residence. Every room is inviting. This is a very nicely sized property. We were in the area for a dance competition and had three adults and three girls. The residence has a room with two twin beds and John and Peggy set up another twin in that room for us, upon our request. Despite adding an additional bed, the room was still large and not cluttered at all. There is not an ensuite bathroom but that was perfect for us. There are two full bathrooms and one has a tub if you need it for little ones. There are double sinks so we had no problems with everyone getting ready in the mornings. They provided coffee and I am quite sure they will accomodate other requests if you contact them. They also provide games, movies, wifi, etc.... There is nothing they have forgotten to make your stay great!

Bottomline, we loved this property! In fact, we enjoyed our stay so much, we plan on returning this summer and may try to make this an annual trip. I highly recommend this property to anyone. It is so much better than a hotel! Thank you, John and Peggy! You guys are great and we truly appreciate all of your kindness! We look forward to our next visit!

Contemporary! Clean! Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

A small group of 5 men came to Chattanooga for a "guys weekend". The property itself was in great condition -- very well restored/renovated for an older building. Clean bathrooms, spacious rooms, comfy living spaces and beds. The decor of the property is very stylish and contemporary. What a great find!?!?

One of my favorite things about this property is the location. You will be only 1 or 2 blocks from MANY really cool restaurants/bars/shops all on the south side of Chattanooga. This is great for walking around Chattanooga and getting some fresh air and exercise. Leave the car at the house. Never felt unsafe in this neighborhood either.

The owners were quite accommodating not only in what you will find in the property (books, TV, DVDs, games, etc.) but also on arrival/departure times. They have really thought of just about everything to make your stay in the house comfortable and enjoyable.

We had a great time in Chattanooga and this location served as a GREAT home base. I could see this location being a good fit for a guys or gals weekend or even for a family getaway too.

Cheers!

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this place last minute on a family getaway to Chattanooga. Peggy got back with me within 30 min of the email I sent and we were able to stay that night! It was very clean and spacious and had everything we needed, including a baby gate for the stairs! We will definitely stay here again.

Chattanooga Bachelorhood Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Our group stay in Chattanooga under Peggy's vacation rental was enjoyable. The group developed good camaraderie to celebrate the few remaining days of a friends bachelorhood. The amenities were ideal for the group. The space was clean. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked to make group meal with all the kitchenware necessary. Our distance to the other bars and restaurants of Chattanooga made the location ideal too.

Peggy's level of communication was very high and her response time quick. I recommend this location!

Perfect location and size

  • 5 of 5

The house was great. We had 2 families with 4 kids and everything was perfect. They set up an extra bed and a pack n play for us. The location was wonderful and there were great restaurants within walking distance. It was easy to get on the electric shuttle to go downtown. There were some movies and games at the house and we enjoyed those as well. Couldn't have been better.

A great place to stay in a great city! So much better than a hotel.

  • 4 of 5

We had such a wonderful time in Chattanooga. We decided to be adventurous for Thanksgiving and visit a brand new city. We are a family of four from suburban South Carolina. Our little ones (7 yr and 3 yr) loved walking around the community. There's so much to offer just one block away from the house on Main Street. We recommend breakfast at Niedlov's bakery. For our Thanksgiving meal we had reservations at Food Works (North Shore of Chattanoogna). Delicious! Great atmosphere. A few minute uber ride away. We didn't use our car at all for the 3 day stay. We walked downtown in the am and then usually übered home. So easy!

Loved the aquarium and just walking around town. It's so family friendly. Coolidge park, carousel ride, walking across the Walnut Bridge. On our last day we checked out of the house and drove 15 minutes to Rock City. Our only regret was not doing the evening Rock City tour that's decorated for the holidays. We could tell it is a sight to be seen.

Loved the house. Girls loved the twin beds room. So perfect. Our bed couldn't have been more comfortable. Peggy has everything you could need in the house - extra blankets, coffee pods, books/games for all ages. The decor is lovely especially the art pieces that are throughout the house. We had a question or two during our stay (grocery store recommendation) and Peggy answered her phone immediately and was there to help. Parking was easy and we felt very safe in the neighborhood. Lots of young professionals, hip older folks, families - just a cool mix of people. Everyone was friendly.

I almost gave it a perfect 5 star but if someone's looking for steps to the aquarium or park you might prefer a hotel closer to the North side of town. This was absolutely perfect for us and we would love to come back and stay at Peggy's again.
