About Aaron Wilburn or Vincent Beasley

Just a couple of families that enjoy getting outside or taking a relaxing boat ride up the river to enjoy a meal at a downtown restaurant. The Beasley's and the Wilburn's have a passion for having fun outdoors and teaching their children the same.

When they are not providing healthcare services, putting people under anesthesia, preparing tax returns or engineering electrical stuff, they are spending time with family and friends or trying to fit in the next mountain bike ride between soccer practice and swim lessons.

Looking for a weekend outdoor activity mecca or a first-rate family vacation spot? Chattanooga has an overwhelming offering of fun and activities for everyone.

Located right on the banks of the Tennessee River in the Tennessee River Gorge, you can wave at the Gorge Explorer cruises from your deck while sipping coffee in the mornings, getting to stay in the very spot that most are paying to tour. Minutes from downtown by car or by boat and even closer to world-class hiking, climbing, fishing, kayaking, biking…you name it…you’re in the middle of it at this river abode!

Downtown Chattanooga is the place to be for entertainment with numerous restaurants and bars and free live music every Friday night all summer at Nightfall, and every Saturday night at Riverfront Nights. In addition, events like Riverbend, 3 sisters Bluegrass Festival, Southern Brewers Festival, movies in Coolidge Park, and several other live music venues like Track 29 and Rhythm and Brews provide something to do year round. This is the best rental property in the city for accessing those events by car or boat.

Chattanooga truly has become a premier vacation spot for those seeking the adrenaline of hang-gliding off of Lookout Mountain or riding the scenic incline up to Ruby Falls with your kids. Just a few of the things to do while here include See Rock City (you’ve seen the barn roofs), Ruby Falls, Tennessee Aquarium (Fresh and Salt Water), The Creative Discovery Museum, Hunter Museum of American Art, Southern Belle Riverboat, Civil War History tours and much more.

Maybe you are here for more of a competitive nature, Chattanooga hosts the 3 State 3 Mountain Challenge cycling event, two Ironman Events, the Chattajack, the Chattanooga Waterfront Triathlon, 7 Bridges Marathon and many more events that utilize the mountains and rivers that surround the city.

If you prefer to relax at the house, you can enjoy swimming, boating, kayaking, Stand-up-paddle boarding and fishing right from the dock. Take a 3 minute ride up the road and you have hiking, Four-wheeling, climbing and whitewater kayaking along the Cumberland trail, Prentice Cooper State Park, The Tennessee Wall and Suck Creek.

Chattanooga has become a bass fishing hot spot with 40 plus pound 5-fish tournament hauls, and the state record largemouth caught here in 2015. Incredible bass fishing on this portion of the Tennessee River has placed Lake Chickamauga as the number 5 ranked bass fishing lake in the country. Access this fishing from the back door of this property.

Trails abound here with hiking and mountain biking opportunities at Raccoon Mountain, Five Points, Stringers Ridge, Enterprise South, Prentice Cooper, the Cumberland Trail, and Lookout Mountain just to name a few. Whitewater is year round with the Ocoee River, Hiwassee River, Suck Creek, North Chickamauga Creek, Mullens Creek, Bear Creek and many more. Something for every skill level.

Chattanooga is the best rock climbing city in the eastern United States due to crags like T-Wall, Deep Creek, Sunset Rock, Stone Fort, Rocktown, Suck Creek Canyon, and many more in close proximity to this rental

I don’t think it needs any more convincing, come and see for yourself and book a vacation at this unbelievable location!

Fantastic family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 16 (10 adults, 6 children) vacationed in Chattanooga over New Years weekend and had the good fortune of booking this location that was the perfect size to accommodate us! The listing description is very accurate and the owners are well organized and excellent communicators. The location is a short 10 minute drive North of downtown near the base of Signal Mountain. Check-in was scheduled for 4pm and we contacted the owners in advance to see if the house would be ready by noon as we were arriving early. Aaron was quick to respond and told us the place would already be cleaned and ready. This was a great way to start our trip!

The property is very well maintained and clean. It has three floors with the main floor having a bedroom with two queen beds, a large kitchen, two dining areas, and a living room with a Smart TV and Blueray/DVD player. We were able to log into our Netflix account using the Smart TV. The upstairs has two bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, and the downstairs has three beds (perfect for a kids room), and a separate room with a fold out couch and a Foosball table. The weather was overcast and rainy for a lot of our stay so we purchased lots of firewood and watched movies and cooked meals. There is a large dock in the back as well as an outdoor fire pit, which we also used quite often when it wasn't raining.

I would recommend this location to any large family (10-16 people) who is looking for a way to experience Chattanooga and have a quiet place to retire to at the end of the day. It is peaceful and private but is still very close to everything you need. Grocery, Wal-Mart, restaurants, etc... all within a 5 minute drive (don't miss Shuford's Smokehouse!). The owners operate www.stayandplaychattanooga.com, which includes this property and another one a few miles up the road.

The only issue we encountered during our stay was the DVD player wasn't working and I only mention it because the owner (Aaron) was extremely responsive and personally delivered a replacement DVD player the same day. I have been partially responsible for a vacation rental in Florida over the years and I can tell you there is no greater feeling than the owners going out of their way to ensure you have the best possible experience.

Great Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We only had 3 nights at this beautiful house, but we used the most of it and had a great time. We rented the pontoon boat and went swimming in the river. The fire pit at night was awesome too. The kitchen was well equipt and all linens were well stocked. All the beds were comfortable and we all had more space than needed. I would highly recomment and we plan on comming back for another trip.

Such a beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 10 of my friends stayed at this wonderful property last weekend for my best friends bachelorette party. The house was HUGE and everything was just perfect. Being able to relax and float on the river was exactly what our group needed. To be able to wake up the beautiful view every morning was truly a blessing. I would highly recommend staying here. The house is close to anything you need as well as close to downtown. The owners of the house were so helpful through the entire process. I would love to stay here again in the future.

Absolute perfect place

  • 5 of 5

It was an absolute pleasure to stay here. When we arrived the owner was just finishing up mowing the yard. He had the kayaks out ready to go. He was more than helpful. House was clean and ready to live in. Can't say enough about the river , the kids had an absolute blast kayaking, paddle boarding and swimming on their own secluded little beach. Would recommend to anyone plenty of room and things to do. The sunsets from the dock are a picture perfect setting. On a side note great and friendly neighbors too

Great place for a family get together

  • 5 of 5

Our family is separated by many miles. Some of us live in Wisconsin, some in Illinois, and some in Florida. Chattanooga seemed like the perfect place for us to all get together, and it was.

This house is perfect for a large group. With all the bedrooms we were able to separate out by family unit. We were able to share meals in the large dining areas, the adults ate at the large table and the children shared the smaller round table. We were able to make our own meals using the kitchen and outdoor gas grill. The children were able to create and perform a talent show, using one of the many rooms to practice and the great room to perform.

The outdoor property is also amazing. There were life vests and floatiies for use In the river. I think that someone was jumping the water every day of our stay. The current was a little vast a couple times in the afternoon, but most of the time it was just perfect for playing in the river. The firepit was great for roasting marshmallows. The deck was a great place to watch the day begin, and the fog rise off the mountains. We even saw bats on our last couple nights there.

The location is amazing. It is so close to downtown Chattanooga that we could easily find things to do if we wanted a day out. It is also close to Ruby Falls and Lookout Mountain.

It was so nice to be able to reconnect with family that we do not see very often, and the river house was the perfect place to do it.

Great stay at a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. We had a group of 14 and there was plenty of room for all of us. The house is right on the Tennessee River and offers a lot of peace and quiet. It is close enough to downtown though so you have everything you need. Aaron and Vincent were great. They were there within minutes when we had a problem and then checked in on us through messages throughout the week to make sure everything was going well. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone!!

P.S. The boat was awesome!
