Property description

Montlake is a unique mountain lake formed millions of years ago. It is one of the very few natural lakes in Tennessee. Our Montlake retreat is a very spacious home with about 20 acres of wooded grounds. There are trails around the lake, and there is a waterfall directly across the lake from the terrace.

Montlake has four bedrooms, four baths, living room, library, great room/dining room, kitchen, and laundry room. There are two fireplaces (library and great room) and a large deck above the terrace. It is a long, rambling house, so there is plenty of privacy for everyone. The master bath has a jetted tub and separate shower, as well as a large walk-in closet and a bidet. The other three baths have tub-showers. The laundry room has large capacity (front-loading) washer and dryer.

The views at Montlake are breathtaking.

Here's what our guests have to say:

'Our stay at Montlake was GREAT!!! Your home was so beautiful and comfortable. There was plenty of room for everyone (we had 9 in our group) to relax and do their own thing. The lake was breathtaking, we hiked around the lake, grilled, and enjoyed the sites. The waterfall was beautiful, it had just rained and it was falling very heavily. The location of your home was also great we were just abbout 20-25 minutes to all attractions, Rock City, Ruby Falls and Chattanooga Railroad Station. Thank you for letting us come to your lovely home. I highly recommend this home to anyone. Hope to stay again next year.' --Carol I.

'We have been recommending your house to friends and family!' --Fabienne V.

'Thank you for the use of your lovely home! We had a relaxed, companiable weekend with our friends. Oh--and the view of the lake is breathtaking! Thank you again; you have a lovely, lovely home.
--Linda and John D.
