Location

Ooltewah, Tennessee, United States

Ooltewah is a small knit town just outside of Chattanooga, TN. Although we are ever growing, Ooltewah maintains its small town charm. Once populated with Native Americans, Ooltewah means “Owl’s Nest”. The Inn is less than a mile from our High School and on weekends you can hear the home games & see the lights. We love our town and are proud to call it our home.
We are sandwiched between Downtown Chattanooga (28 min drive) & Knoxville (a little over an hour drive)
