Perfect place to stay when in Knoxville. Great location and great accommodations. JR and Liz had everything we needed and more. The breakfast casserole was delicious! Thank you. We will definitely stay here again and recommend to all our friends.

This is our second time staying with Liz, J.R. and their baby son Andrew. They allowed us to stay in their master bedroom because their basement apartment was already rented out to accommodate our visit to Knoxville.

J.R. and Liz were great hosts. They made me feel at home and part of the family the moment I arrived. Andrew, the little one, was a joy to be around. Happy and he never fussed. The room and the bed were comfortable. I could interact or retire as I chose. The location made it easy for me to get to and from downtown. But best of all was how they both went above and beyond. I was showing at a crafts fair with very long hours and Liz made and delivered lunch to me both days! And J.R. checked the oil in my car because I thought I might have a leak and was nervous about my drive home. I don't want to obligate them to these services in the future but just share how gracious they were.

Only the cutest, coziest spot in Knoxville! Liz & J.R. were beyond helpful and hospitable. Our film crew reached out for a last minute place to shoot, and they welcomed our large, chaotic party with open arms. Their house was perfect! Classic & unique with all of the modern touches you could want. It looked great on camera! And the house itself has a super cool story behind it. I can't thank them enough for their quick response and friendly faces. Working with this sweet couple was truly a delight!

The owners of this room were friendly and courteous. They upgraded my stay to their suite which was huge. The room was very clean and the amenities exceeded my expectations. Fresh coffee, creamer, bread, butter, jam were a few extras that made the stay nice. The bed I slept in was EXTREMELY comfortable. I wanted to stay in bed all day. Again, most enjoyable stay.

Thanks for the nice review Joan! We are actually in the process of putting pavers in for parking and the walkway. The instability will be stable very soon.

What a great stay. Stayed here for a job that required a lot of luggage and physical labor. Really functional space, the jacuzzi tub is extra large and relaxing. Hosts were extremely responsive and stocked the fridge for me. I'm a light sleeper and the place was so peaceful.

J.R. & Liz User ProfileJ.R. & Liz is a superhost.

J.R. & Liz love Downtown Knoxville and bought a historic home in the area the summer of 2014. They renovated the basement studio the following summer and registered The Glenwood Inn as an official Bed & Breakfast with the city of Knoxville. They very much enjoy meeting all the travelers who come visit.

J.R. is passionate about fly fishing and hooking trophy trout/bass/carp - any BIG fish. Liz loves cooking, art, music & natural healing. J.R. and Liz welcomed their first baby in September 2015 and their second in February 2017. They both long to travel together to experience new cultures and enjoy time with family & friends.
