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.

Aaron Wilburn or Vincent Beasley purchased this house in 2015

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 location. Weird floor plan

  • 4 of 5

Our group was 6 adults (3 couples), 2 little kids, and 1 dog. We stayed 5 nights in June. Loved the location relative to all of Chattanooga’s attractions. Loved being on the river to fish & swim.

We chose this house so couples wouldn’t have to share bathrooms. That didn’t work out bc of the weird layout. There is no plumbing on the basement level, while 2 of the bathrooms are upstairs. Only the large bath w/jacuzzi tub is on the main level.

Also, it’s tough to get from the house to the dock. There are 3 options, and all of them require a good bit of walking/climbing. This didn’t stop us from enjoying both the deck and dock, but it’s something to consider if you have travelers with mobility issues.

The kitchen has all the cookware, flatware, and silverware you’ll need, but there is absolutely nothing in the pantry. No spices, flour, oil spray, ziploc bags, etc.

Owners were great and super responsive. Home was professionally cleaned before and after our stay.

House on the beautiful Tennessee River

  • 4 of 5

Our family had a wonderful, restful Christmas here at the River Gorge house. Not a good time of year for swimming--haha--but the house was great for a large family get-together. The only flaw with the house is that it could use a little updating. But the location is great, and we hope to return in the summer.

Chattanooga Winner

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful huge house on the river. So close to downtown and all the amazing things to do in Chattanooga. The Tennessee Aquarium was one of the best I have ever visited and the lights at Rock City were amazing! We rented the house and invited our 2 children and their families. Enjoyed the downstairs rec room which gave the kids a great place to relax and play. The huge dining room has ample seating for a large group and the kitchen was large and gave an amazing view of the river and mountains on the other side. The large living room on the first floor had ample seating for our large group and since it was cold we enjoyed using the wood burning fireplace. This house had beautiful decks, fire pit and easy access to the river for fishing and swimming so we hope to come back sometime when the weather is warm!

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.

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!
