About the property

5 Bedroom Lodge with outstanding views, luxurious accommodations, Sleeps 14

The Lodge at Canyon Ridge is an exquisite residence located on the 1st tee at the Canyon Ridge Golf Resort. The view of the first hole and McLemore Cove in Georgia is amazing. The Lodge was built in the style of a French Country home and has extensive decks from which to enjoy the views and the outdoors. In addition, it has a covered and screened porch with a wood-burning fireplace just off of the kitchen. Adjoining the covered porch is a beautiful herb garden planted by the original owner that has been updated with flowers and other plants. Inside the two-story house there are five bedrooms and five and ½ baths. The master bedroom is on the first floor and the remaining four, each with a private bath, are on the second floor. Each bedroom has been uniquely furnished and decorated and named! Two of the bedrooms have king beds and the other three have queen beds, with one huge bedroom having two queens and a large seating area. In addition, there are two daybeds in two of the bedrooms, offering a total sleeping capacity of 14 people. For convenience, a seating area with coffee service is located in the huge hallway.

Also on the main floor is a fully equipped kitchen that has everything you need to cook or to serve food brought in. A butcher-block island with 5-burner gas cook-top and two full-size ovens facilitate cooking for large groups. The huge great room opens onto the deck and offers comfortable arrangements for socializing, watching TV, etc. There is a half bath off of the great room and a large laundry room and pantry. The enormous deck offers ample seating for enjoying the view, eating, etc.

A short walk takes you to the golf clubhouse or to the Pavilion, a unique open-air covered building that can be rented for weddings, reunions, or any other occasion which offers large covered and open space and cooking facilities and a huge fireplace, with seating and tables for over 100 people. A few blocks away are the community clubhouse with exercise facilities, bathrooms, a swimming pool, and excellent tennis courts. There are also stocked ponds if fishing is your thing.

The Lodge is located on Lookout Mountain in Georgia and is 28 miles from downtown Chattanooga and even closer to the attractions in Lookout Mountain and St. Elmo in Tennessee. Canyon Grill, an outstanding restaurant is about 5 minutes away (open only for dinner) and there are restaurants and grocery stores in Trenton, about 15 minutes away. There are hiking trails within the Resort but Cloudland Canyon State Park is nearby with additional trails.

The golf course itself is beautiful and challenging and when golfers are not on the course, offers additional trails for walking and golf-ball collecting. Canyon Ridge is conveniently located about two hours from Birmingham, Atlanta, and Knoxville. Due to its elevation, it is always 5-8 degrees cooler than surrounding valleys and coves.

With the large areas indoors (4700+ sq. ft.) and the huge outdoor deck and porch (1000+ sq. ft.), the Lodge is an excellent venue for reunions, golfing getaways, retreats and wedding-related events. Or, just sit on the deck and look at the view!

Why Scarlett Wilson chose Rising Fawn

Unique property that had a great story but had been neglected and was to nice to pass up. It is in a wonderful location and has some wonderful features. Great outdoor space. We wanted to preserve it and help make the Resort a more attractive place to visit.

What makes this house unique

Really just need to visit and see. Once you step out on the deck and see the view, you will understand.

Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I rent many VRBO rentals and this was one of the nicest rentals we have stayed in. Our family enjoyed golfing, hiking and a roaring fire on the porch at night. The owners were super nice and accommodating. The house was immaculately clean and furnished with everything you could need. We will definitely be visiting again!

Absolutely amazing property

  • 5 of 5

I own a vacation rental company near Nashville and I stay in vacation rentals all the time.

This is one of the nicest homes we have ever stayed in. We were in town with family for a birthday get together . 4 couples and a few friends came over from Chattanooga . Every couple had an amazing suite with private bath. Even the last couple here got an amazing suite and that never happens . The pictures don't do it justice, if your looking for a place in this area,I highly recommended you stay here. And Scarlett the owner is amazing , very helpful.

Lovely home with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a more perfect place to spend Thanksgiving. This is a lovely home that is very tastefully decorated. It was very well equipped with everything we needed in the kitchen and some nice bonuses like extra coffee and a Keurig upstairs. It was very clean and comfortable with lots of space for everyone to enjoy. We especially liked the outdoor, wood burning fireplace. The views from this home are just outstanding. Sunrise and sunset are truly breathtaking. We were pleased to find that there are hiking trails right on the property. The owners were easily accessible and very accommodating. We will definitely return to this oasis outside of Chattanooga and only ten minutes from Cloudland State Park where there are amazing hiking and mountain biking trails.

Guy's Fishing Trip

  • 5 of 5

Me and about 10 of my friends rented this house for a men's weekend getaway and to do some fishing. The house was beautiful, roomy (everyone had their own bed), and beautiful views. The two lakes for fishing are very accessible. I believe everyone except for one person caught a fish and that person had a bite that got away. We had a great time and plan on making this an annual trip and will probably bring the wives hear for a getaway too. The owner is great! She was very helpful and responds quickly. If you need a large house for a nice getaway to do some fishing and golfing, we highly recommend this house.

Beautiful property with testy landlords

  • 2 of 5

The house was beautiful, but the landlords are a bit picky regarding how you leave their property. Our family has stayed at a lot of places and the owners have been pretty cool and in turn I have given great reviews. These folks should not be in the business of renting. You will love the property but if you leave a crumb or crayon on the floor or in the couch expect to hear about it later. Just beware of this if you choose to stay here. The showers are a hazard as the hot and cold is reversed, lips on showers can easily flood both upstairs and downstairs, the development is a lot further from Chattanooga than advertised. Landlords are polite to your face, but leave you wondering about your security deposit over minor issues.

Owner's Response: Luke, I am sorry you feel this way about your experience. I refrained from rating you as a guest because I did not want to say anything negative. You rented the house as 10 adults and no children, but I learned that this was not the case when I ran into you with the children in your party at the community pool. I have no restrictions against children, but feel that it is reasonable to be provided with correct information about who is staying in the house. I did not address this with you until after you left. The issues that I raised with you were not crumbs on the floor and crayons left behind, but crayon marks and crayon stains on four of the light colored sofa cushions. I charged you the $35 that is cost to have the cushion covers professionally cleaned. I also charged you $25 for failing to bag the trash as provided in the directions for using the house. I had to go through the large trash can and bag all of the loose trash so that it could be picked up, not a pleasant job. Two sizes of garbage bags were provided for your use. You are the first guest that has not had their deposit refunded in full. I instructed VRBO to refund the balance of your deposit as soon as I knew the cost of the cleaning bill and that the stains came out. We did not know that the hot and cold water were reversed in two of the showers when we began renting the house, but put notes on the showers until we could fix the issue. It has been fixed. We put a great deal of thought and care into furnishing and decorating the house for the enjoyment of our guests, and we do care that it remains nice for our next guests, apart from normal cleaning after use. As to proximity of the house to Chattanooga, it is 28 miles to downtown and I will make that clear in my listing.

Scenic Land Company acquires Canyon Ridge Club

Literally years in the making, Scenic Land Company officially acquired the Canyon Ridge Club on Tuesday, October 3rd. This purchase includes the 18-hole golf course, golf maintenance structures, all 67 unsold residential lots, and the approximately 50 acres of undeveloped land.

With this acquisition, Scenic Land Company and affiliated partners manages over 800 acres stretching across Lookout Mountain from the east brow to the west brow. This purchase lays the groundwork for continued renovation of the golf course with Rees Jones and Bill Bergin, the development of the clubhouse with Roland Aberg and Tim Slatterly of Hart Howerton, and the creation of the hotel with Euan McGlashan of Valor Hospitality.

We are truly excited about the opportunities in front of us and aware of the challenges. We are thankful for your commitment to the Canyon Ridge community and look forward to many years of continued partnership and progress!
