About mary smallman

I live in Baltimore, Maryland with my husband, Steve. Our kids live in Chattanooga, so we're down several times a year. While I'm not local, I'm available by text and phone and my parents are next door. We'll make sure you have everything you need!

Why mary smallman chose Lookout Mountain

This property was built in the 1950s by my great Uncle and Aunt, Rudy and Collyn Schmidt. My parents, Al and Julie Lutz, later built an addition to the property to care for Uncle Rudy and Aunt Collyn until they passed. My parents own the property and live in the right side of the duplex. You will likely see them out and about. The house has great sentimental value to us and we think you'll love they way we've refreshed and furnished it.

What makes this House unique

This Lookout Mtn. beauty allows you to get away from it all while preserving easy access to Chattanooga and historical sites. If you like to hike, you're just a short walk from the Ochs Gateway Trailhead, part of the Lookout Mountain National Park.

                                      Lynn M.

                                      Lifetime girlfriends getaway. This home is beautiful and the view is spectacular. It is close to all the attractions in Chattanooga and provides a quiet place to sit and visit or play cards like we do every year. Thanks again for the hospitality.

                                      Beautiful house with a stunning view

                                      Glenn G.

                                      The house is very comfortable and ideally situated for quick access to covenant college.

                                      Cozy and comfy

                                      Shannon T.Nashville, TN

                                      Our family of five found this space to be great for unwinding and relaxing together. Unlike some of the other VRBO places we have stayed, this one felt like a home, not a pit stop. The furniture was comfortable, we loved looking through the books everywhere and the space was well-stocked with anything we needed while there.

                                      Lovely! We love to hear that guests enjoy Schmidt House like we do:) Hope you can come back again!

                                      Very nice, clean, homey

                                      Sally H.

                                      My mother (75), great aunt (84), and I spent a wonderful couple of days. Everything we needed was readily available. Great floor plan, no stairs, easy for the ladies with bad knees to get around. Beautiful views. Very nice stay.

                                      Graham B.

                                      Our family of 4 stayed 4 nights and had a wonderful time. The accommodations were perfect, the view was fantastic, and the location was exactly what we wanted....next to the Ochs trailhead just behind Covenant College. Mary was a great host and available with a quick response to any questions. This will definitely be the first place we check for availability on our next Chat trip.

                                      Owner's Response:

                                      We're so glad you enjoyed your stay! It sounded like you took full advantage of the outdoor activities that the mountain has to offer. Hope you can come back soon :)

                                      Warm and inviting home in a beautiful setting. Scenic views, magnificent sunrises and sunsets.

                                      Phil S.

                                      We had a wonderful week's stay with our sister and brother-in-law in this peaceful, fully appointed home. It seemed that everything had been thought of and supplied for our comfort and enjoyment. We very much enjoyed our booking experience with Mary, and would highly recommend this to everyone.
