... friends and began the last leg of our journey. We were headed home to Florida. The plan was to take 4 days to make the drive from Illinois to Florida. We managed to get 350 miles down the road. We drove straight south the length of Illinois. What a long state Illinois is! And we spent the night in an KOA campground in Benton, IL. Monday, on the road again, we were getting antsy to get home. The weather was definitely changing. While in Illinois, the ...
Today we got up early and watched St. Louis when we woke up while we packed. I really enjoyed the film but we missed the end so that we could get the matar to the grey hound bus station. Well it's a **** whole! We were there half an hour early to check in but none of the machines were working so the queue was really long. We would definitely have missed our bus in the wait. Lots of people were complaining and getting ignored. I pretended to ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Stone Fort inn Chattanooga
This Inn is absolutely beautiful. Its obvious that this building has been lovingly restored. It reminded me of Inns I've visited in Europe. We stayed this past weekend in Chattanooga for the Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.) rally. WE loved EVERYTHING about the Inn---from the uniquely decorated rooms to the warm and welcoming staff to the continental breakfast offered each morning. Their scones are fabulous and the local roasted coffee was rich and flavorful. Another nice touch----all rooms come with Aveda body products. This is OUR new FAVORITE Inn----we will return!
Another amazing stay at the Stonefort!!
My husband and I stayed here last year for our 1 year anniversary and decided to return this year for our 2nd. It was another wonderfully relaxing stay. Everything was perfect, from the huge tub to the soft cuddley bed and even the 40's style music that plays softly in the background. It's as if you are being whisked away to a different era where the days and nights just float by and you have not a care in the world. It was so nice to get away and just relax. Thank you Stonefort you are my haven!
Wonderful boutique hotel. Been twice and going back!
My boyfriend and I visited Stonefort in on its opening weekend (a surprise because we didn't know that at the time!)
Even with the craziness, the staff was so friendly, recommending places to eat (it is right downtown and within walking distance of many places), helping with the luggage (the elevator was not open yet so we took the grand staircase!)
The feel of the hotel is very "french boutique" with old wood, plaster, antique gaming table and books, etc. We stayed in a queen room, one of the most basic, but we loved it because it had a walk in tiled shower, and a double jacuzzi bath.
The staff, as I said, are wonderful, and the hotel will even throw in little romantic touches like rose petals for a reasonable fee.
We went again the next year, and by chance got the same room. The decorations have been spruced up a bit, and they now have a restaurant attatched to the hotel that is open certain days of the week. They still have excellent breakfast choices, and the continental breakfast you can be served downstairs or in your room is scrumptious (we had mandarin yogurt, huge cinnamon rolls, croissants, fresh berries and fresh juice)
We are definitely planning on going back this summer, and I hope that you can go and enjoy all that Stonefort has to offer!
Stylish inn in the heart of Chattanooga
I tend to travel quite often, and I review 100s of inns online. When trying to find a nice place to stay, too often I find the typical "country blue and geese" themes when looking at bed and breakfasts. For me, I'm looking for something a bit more upscale. This place is it! I was surprised to find a gym like this so close by (I'm in Birmingham). I've given many gift certificates here to my friends, and they have all thanked me many times. Check it out - you will not be disappointed.
A Wonderful Honeymoon
My wife and I chose to take a Honeymoon retreat not too far from home (the greater Nashville area) in Chattanooga at the Stone Fort Inn.
From the moment we arrived we felt welcomed, cared for and relaxed.
As directed (on the Web-site) we called the innkeeper as we were exiting the interstate, a smiling face met us curbside and helped with our luggage. We relaxed over a glass of wine with some other guests, who became our 'old friends' right away (MANY THANKS FOR THEIR GIFT OF KINDNESS!). We were then escorted to our wonderful suite...I knew we had come to the right place when I heard my wife's exclaimation of joy! Believe me, that does a man's heart good! After we unpacked the innkeepers brought up some special 'sweets' from Nathan's Restaurant and glasses of champaign to enjoy before bed...
The warmth of the fire gently touched us and the oversized queen bed nestled us gently as we delighted in our first night together! "Nothing could be finer..." Sunday moring we enjoyed a spectacular breakfast of Scrambled eggs w/ currants and crabmeat, fresh fruit, juices, fresh breads and more...delicious in every way. WOW! A treasured experience we won't soon forget...our every need was met and the service was above and beyond. Thank you to all at the Stone Fort Inn.
Loved the place
My fiance and I stayed at the Stone Fort inn over the summer of 2003 and we had a wonderful time! The rooms are beautiful and the staff is friendly...Its is absolutely the place to take your woman, GUYS, for a nice romantic getaway...We're going back in a matter of weeks!!
An excellent place to stay
We had an excellent stay at the Stonefort Inn - our room was large and comfortable, clean and well furnished. All the staff were very friendly, helpful and courteous. The breakfasts were delicious and we had dinner in Nathans - the Inn's restaurant -which was excellent. The Inn is well located - convenient for the free shuttle bus which runs from downtown to the Choo Choo complex and within easy walking distance of Warehouse row shopping etc.
Warm welcome; gorgeous property
The person at the front desk, Carly, is a tremendous representative of this beautiful property. She gives a great first impression of the property. Extremely friendly and welcoming. Very informative. We did not stay the night, but we will in the future. We just wanted to see the hotel and it is gorgeous. The rooms are beautiful. They renovators kept the best of the old place and added modern touches to it. We did visit the restaurant, Nathan's. Nathan Winowich, the former chef at Chattanooga's best restaurant (Southside Grill), started his own place inside Stone Fort Inn. It is great. The overall result is a property that I'm sure is not equalled in Chattanooga -- or in many other places for that matter.
The Stone Fort Inn is the best in Chattanooga!
My husband and I are originally from Chattanooga. We were down visiting family and attending a relative's wedding. Our trip just happened to coincide with our anniversary. We decided that instead of staying with our parents or going to Atlanta or Gatlinburg for our anniversary, we would stay somewhere nice in town. We looked at several of the most popular bed and breakfasts and we discovered that there was a new inn downtown. When we made the reservations we were treated with exceptional service. We were staying on a Monday, so they were not fully booked. We were actually the only ones staying there (I don't think that is the case anymore. They are doing a great business). We were greeted by our names at our arrival and treated with true southern hospitality. We were helped with our bags and personally escorted to our room. We stayed in one of the balcony suites. OUr room was decorated in a French country style with beautiful yellow walls, a fireplace, and beautiful hardwood floors. The bed was so comfortable and the sheets were of the highest quality. The bathroom was huge.
There was a jacuzzi tub, a standing shower, and seperate water closet.
Although our room was one of the two biggest, the other rooms that we saw were also very roomy and beautiful. Since we were the only ones there, our breakfast was brought up to the room. We had giant sweet rolls, giant croissants, fresh fruit, juice, and coffee. I'm not sure if they were baked on site or from one of the local bakeries. It was delicious. The location is great. We were within walking distance from some stores and restaurants, but most everything else is within a short driving distance. Parking is free and is right across the street from the inn. If you are looking for great food and atmosphere, go to the Bluff View Art District. There are great restaurants, coffee shops, and art. The staff at the Inn can tell you more about it. The Stone Fort Inn is excellent and the perfect romantic getaway for two.
Absolutely beautiful inn, we will be coming back
We stayed at the Stonefort Inn for only one night of the four that we were in Tennessee, but it was the highpoint of our trip. Every room is unique and absolutely stunning. I could not, in good conscience, recommend staying ANYWHERE else while in Chattanooga - and if you're not staying in Chattanooga, I would go as far as recommending that you divert there just to be able to stay at Stonefort Inn. Stunning!
