Whether you're just dropping in to see friends, catch a game at Neyland Stadium or one of our great Market Square festivals, or just want to have your own brand of fun - come stay with us! Located in historic North Knoxville, our home offers a comfy above-ground basement apartment with a private entrance. We are surrounded by a beautiful neighborhood of remarkable Old South homes and lush gardens with great sidewalks to enjoy any time of day...And we're only 7 minutes from downtown.

The space

Our home is nestled in the historic Fairmont/Emoriland neighborhood district. The streets are lined with homes from the early 1900s to the 1950s. Sidewalks adorn both sides of the street with a lovely garden-filled median. Each season brings its own beauty to this neighborhood, and many walkers can be seen enjoying the outdoors here.

Guest access

The entire above ground basement apartment is yours! There is a living area with a Smart TV and basic cable, a private bathroom with amenities, two bedrooms, and a kitchen that includes a microwave, convection oven, and refrigerator. We provide coffee and some treats, and we also include wi-fi access. The apartment has a private entrance, and the backyard is yours to enjoy as well (especially if you have young children). Parking is in the rear and is spacious enough to fit 2-3 cars.

Interaction with guests

As hosts, we are available as much or as little as you need us. While we love meeting guests, we know that the Scruffy City is what you're here to see! We have the key in the lock with an access code for guests who arrive when we can't meet.

Other things to note

We live very close to downtown and UT's campus (about 5-10 minutes). If you're itching to head to the mountains, we are about 45 minutes to an hour away. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are about the same distance with an easy route via the interstate.

Elisa was an amazing host and her place was awesome! The gigantic bed was really comfortable and the whole place felt really homey :) Plus, the yard is beautiful! Elisa took the time to have a nice chat with me to welcome me to the house and point me in the direction of some great restaurants that fit my dietary requirements. I highly recommend this AirBnB :)

Elisa's place is wonderful! We had a great time. It is in an older neighborhood but close to the highway so it is easy to get everywhere. I appreciated the Keurig and small breakfast selection available in the morning. Would be happy to return some day!

This rental was a great value: clean, quiet, safe & nice neighborhood, lovely yard, and really sweet family! Elisa provided things like coffee and half and half and snacks and fruit. They had an incredible collections of books and a nice selection of Netflix etc to watch TV. The place was exactly as described and Elisa couldn't have been nicer or sweeter. It is also very close to the 640 interstate ramp which makes getting around town easier. There were even little touches like a book of hikes with hiking recommendations for the Smoky mountains. It felt like a home away from home and I would definitely stay here again. And in the raised beds in the back I saw the prettiest okra plant I had ever seen. What a sweet delight,!

Response from Elisa:
What a sweet and generous review! Thank you so much, Jessica! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay, and you are most welcome back anytime. Those books won't be going anywhere--and you should definitely enjoy one of those hikes when you come back. Worth a bit of fresh mountain air!

Spacious, clean, well decorated , basement apartment. Great location with quick access to local hotspots and Neyland stadium. Elisa, our host was great. She made sure we were not in need of anything. We had fresh fruit, coffee, fruit bars, oatmeal, and yogurt stocked waiting for us. Full size refrigerator with small kitchen appliances available if needed. Uber/lyft services available if you do not wish to drive. We did take advantage of those services on game day. I would recommend this little gem to anyone. I hope to visit again. Great first time airbnb experience. Susan Lamb
