About Jerry Market
My wife and I moved to Signal Mtn, Tn in 2002. We are originally from Indiana. I was a pastor for 28 yrs, 14 here in Signal Mountain. My wife works part time as a Library Clerk at a local Law firm. We have two daughters, Sara and Jenny. Sara is married and lives here locally, Jenny lives in Brooklyn, NY. Rachel's Place is a cottage that I completely gutted and remodeled for my mother when she moved in with us. However her dementia has accelerated to such a degree that she cannot live by herself. So she moved in with us and we made the cottage into a vacation rental. Debi loves to decorate inside and out. I love to work with my hands building things, taking something that has no value and making it into something. I love to read, Debi loves yard sales. I know while traveling sometimes you don't feel like neighboring (country talk for getting to know people) but if you do we would like to get to know you.
Jerry Market purchased this Cottage in 2010

Cute Comfortable Cabin
We really enjoyed our night at Rachel's Place. It was clean and much prettier inside than the pictures online. We would stay here again!
Clean, fun, quick stay in the Walden area. Some of the gnarliest hiking I've ever experienced at Signal Point Park, and a very welcoming environment. Two hours from Nashville, Two hours from Knoxville, a great basecamp for excursions of all kinds!
Nice/convenient place to stay for a few days.
Nice and cozy
The house was perfect for our visit. Had everything we needed. It was close enough to the City and on a main highway. Easy to get wherever you want to go.
Very peaceful place to stay that gives you the feel of home! Great people with a great property!
Quiet little well kept home.
Small little home nesstled at the top of Signal mountain. Well kept little place that had everything we needed for our stay. It's a quiet neighborhood that you don't have to worry too much about your stuff getting broken into. We went fishing at lake Chicamauga and stayed here. My only recommendation is if you have a boat or trailer with you for any reason make sure you stay right on the main road (127) because we went down a little bitty road that said "No Trailers" and things got a bit hairy for a minute. But all in all it's a nice little place especially if you're looking to save some money and stay in a cheaper place. Met the owner of the place for a brief moment and he's a friendly guy who just checked in on us to see if we needed anything then went on his way. I can't say anything bad about Rachel's place.
