About this listing
1200 Square Foot Victorian in North Knoxville less than 10 minute drive from downtown. Room includes comfortable pull-out sofa in guess room with TV.
Hello! We're Shawn and Dale, a photographer and pie maker who love living in North Knoxville. We have a comfortable fold-out couch with an inflatable mattress in our cozy TV room.
We have a cute little diner just two blocks from our home, and a great hidden gem of a sandwich shop just five blocks away. We're a mile from the Happy Holler area, which boasts a couple bars, some great little restaurants, ice cream, a co-op grocery store and Knoxville's best bakery and a true Knoxville dive bar. We're just two miles from lovely downtown Knoxville.
There's plenty of parking on our street. While we are walkable/bikeable to downtown, there are a few big hills on the 2.5 mile route that make it somewhat strenuous.
Arriving early or late? We can provide you with a hidden key so you can check-in and check-out at your convenience.
Guests will have access to all common areas, our sweet little porch, wifi internet, a 42 inch TV in their room, a full kitchen and a bathroom with a pretty epic shower.
Interaction with Guests
It's not uncommon for us to be running around and out of the house for most of your stay, but we've also been known to grab a drink or meal with our guests.
We are located close to downtown, and about one mile from Happy Holler, which has a couple bars, eateries and shops. Note: our neighborhood isn't glamorous. Previous guests have noted that other houses on our block are a bit run down. If that bothers you, we're probably not the best spot for you!
Street parking. We are about three blocks from a bus line to downtown Knoxville. Ubers to downtown are inexpensive.
Unfortunately we can't allow pets unless they are crated. We have three scaredy cats.
I'm a food truck owner in Knoxville and live with my husband, Shawn, a photographer and all-around awesome dude, and our three cats (we will keep them out of your room during your stay but folks with serious allergies probably won't be comfortable in our house).
We like: cooking and eating, traveling, reading, drinking coffee/tea/bourbon/champagne (depending on mood and time of day) and kayaking/fishing/swimming/generally being around water.
As travelers, we love to walk around neighborhoods, eat, drink and relax. We're not often big on seeing every tourist spot, going to every museum, or cramming our days with a full itinerary, but we love getting to know the feel of new places and having good conversations with new people.
