About the property

Sophie's Roost is a charming and beautifully decorated treehouse nestled on the side of Early Moon Ridge at The Homestead 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 Canjon 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.

The charm of a treehouse with the comforts of home!!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience! The surrounding area is beautiful. We took our kids 11, 8, and 5 and they loved it! They especially loved the swings and ponds. We truly did things together like skipping rocks, hiking, climbing trees. . . things kids should do! And then in the treehouse we played cards and board games. We were able to cook breakfast in the outdoor kitchen and eat sandwiches for lunch. We drove into Chattanooga (straight shot, easy drive ab 12 miles) to eat dinner. The beds are comfortable and the treehouse is so cozy. We can't wait to return!!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the treehouse! Our little ones loved the loft and the time we spent exploring outside. Be sure to visit the play treehouse, rope swing, and lake nearby! It was also an easy drive into Chattanooga, where we spent a lot of our time. It truly was a great place to stay, with the privacy and unique experience we were looking for! We hope to go back.

Quiet, Peaceful, Tranquil

  • 5 of 5

Sophie's Roost was perfect for our mother/daughter weekend. We were in the area for the Veterns Day Marathon in Chickamauga Battlefield. Perfect location! Chattanooga just 20 minutes away, so after coming 'home' to change after the race, we went to town. Coming back 'home' was so wonderful. Walking under the fairy lights, enjoying the cheese, crackers and wine that were there and snuggling into our nest to read for the evening. So peaceful. No TV for temptation which is wonderful. I enjoyed cooking breakfast on the outdoor grill on Sunday morning and cleaning the dishes in the outdoor sink. There is just something about it. Getting back to my old camping days, but definitely a bit more luxurious!

We have decided this may be an annual event. Girls only! Boys not allowed!

Adorable Roost -- We Will Be Back!

  • 5 of 5

One of the best getaways my husband and I have ever had. Amenities and décor were top notch and well thought out. The basket with wine and nibbles was much appreciated! Big shout out to the flameless candles -- they served us well as nightlights. Best of all, the seclusion and privacy, and spending quality time (in a quality environment) together without technology!
