Sophie's Roost is a charming and beautifully decorated treehouse nestled on the side of Early Moon Ridge at The Candlelight Forest in Chickamauga . Only 20 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, by way of a pastoral drive through the Chattanooga Valley, these accommodations are perfectly located to take in Chattanooga and the many surrounding attractions that abound nearby, including Cloudland Canyon State Park, Rock City, Ruby Falls, and The Chickamauga National Battlefield Park.
Perched in a beautiful canopy, Sophie's Roost is built on a sloping ridge and provides for very safe and easy access, as its entrance is at ground level. Tamara Dillard, the owner of Sophie's, a home decor shop located in the North Shore district of Chattanooga, along with her staff professionally decorated Sophie's Roost, hence its name.
Upon arrival, a short stroll through the woods (and after dark, under near-magical hanging moon lights) brings you to the front door of your home away from home.
A private queen bed nook, an open living area, a full bath, a back porch, any many thoughtful nooks and crannies adorned with decorator surprises, provide the downstairs living experience. Up a two-tiered loft ladder, 4 twin beds and a cute half bath await the more adventurous up above.
Our own signature Canopy Kitchenette (TM) rounds out the experience. The back porch has a very simple kitchen that includes a stainless wash sink, concrete countertop, toaster, and a gas grill with side burner, all elegantly covered in the shade of an oversized umbrella. Dine upon the custom built-in fold-down table and antique wooden chairs.
Sophie's Roost combines the greatest of all vacation experiences - cooking outdoors with shelter to boot, cozy spaces for family fun and romance, and a home base for all the excitement that awaits in this enchanting mountain and valley world only minutes from vibrant Chattanooga.
