About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

3 bedroom /2 bath cabin on the brow at Eagles Roost. Beautiful 2 story cedar house with a red tin roof, perfect for an afternoon rain shower. Built from local hardwoods, this is an authentic mountain home with all the charm you would expect. Off a private road, you will find this getaway with ample den, buck stove and vaulted ceiling fully opening onto huge deck. Open the doors and this space turns your den and deck into one room. . . an indoor /outdoor living area. The deck features an 8 person hot tub , comfortable outdoor den furniture including a sofa, love seat, chair and ottoman surrounding your slate coffee table/ gas fire pit adjacent to a large teak dining table and umbrella and charcoal Weber grill. In the center of the deck is a bar "overlook" that enhances the vast view of the valley and distant mountains. A small screen porch is adjacent to the dining room. Just open the double doors for al fresco dining. The next time you see an ad for Lookout Mountain vacations you will swear the pictures were taken from this very deck. Large master with king bed downstairs,700+ count sheets, down comforters and pillows, private bath and private large jetted tub. 2 upstairs guest rooms. Queen bed in 2nd guest room and queen bed in 3rd room; both share 2nd bath with private entry from 2nd bedroom.

2 hours from Atlanta, 2 hours from Birmingham, 45 minutes from Chattanooga. Close to Chicamunga battlefield and Grandview. Minutes from Cloudland Park, Desoto Park, hang gliding, white water rafting,snow skiing, kayaking, mountain climbing, fishing, the quaint mountain village of Mentone AND SECONDS from your private deck.(usually a small waterfall and rambling stream on each side adds to the stress numbing atmosphere.)

Although there is lots to do around Ridgetop, many people get there and just stay to enjoy the view and privacy!

About Julie Ellis/Captain Julie at 404 277 4487 or

I bought this home as my 2nd home years ago and while living in Atlanta routinely made trips to Ridgetop on weekends. We loved it and furnished the house with antiques, art and cabin style features. Since then, I moved to Florida and decided to let others enjoy the home as much as we have. I try to get up to Ridgetop once a year and while I am away we have a fantastic couple who take care of the property and are there for our guests anytime they are needed.

Why Julie Ellis/Captain Julie at 404 277 4487 or chose Georgia

The view, the view, the view! That's why I originally bought Ridgetop but then I discovered other wonderful things about the home and the area. The house is very secluded with just a handful of homes on the road. Every season is wonderful, although Fall is probably my favorite. Sitting outside, enjoying the colors, and reading a book in front of the gas fire pit is hard to beat. I know you will love Ridgetop as much as I do.

What makes this cabin unique

Enjoy the view, the oversized hot tub, barbecuing outside, the buckstove that heats the entire house, the walk down the quaint dirt road in front of the house. Sit at the outdoor bar that makes you feel as if you are soaring over Shinbone Valley below. You cannot help but feel at peace and relaxed while visiting Ridgetop.

Amazing views with cozy cabin and complete privacy

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this cabin a couple weeks ago and had a wonderful, relaxing time! The cabin, and the hot tub, was large enough to fit two other couples but it was nice just the two of us. The cabin was clean and the beds and sheets were super comfortable. The views were absolutely gorgeous and it was very quiet & peaceful. I would definitely recommend this place to a friend and hope to go back within the next year or so !

Wonderful Stay - Amazing View - Lovely Prioprietor

  • 5 of 5

We rented the cabin for a large group of adult family members, and ended up having some babies with us as well at the last minute. Julie was very patient and helpful prior to booking, as I was nervous about payments and such. She discussed it with me at length and offered me several options and that suited me well. The property itself was lovely. It was rustic and charming, as expected. Not a "luxury" retreat, but that's not what we wanted. There were actually more beds than we had anticipated, and so even though we had an extra person or two, all were very comfortable. The hot tub was excellent! It had just been refilled for us, and so we actually left it cool...which was great. It was the perfect place to relax, cool off in the heat, and look at the amazing view, which is truly breathtaking. We found everything we needed in the kitchen - our group chose to bring food and each couple took turns providing and preparing meals. My meal was complex, haha, but I didn't lack for any of the tools needed to make it. The wifi was great. The surrounding area is very nice, very quiet. (Note: bring some food with you ahead of time - closest real grocery is about 20-30 min.) We spent one day swimming at the Hippie Hole in the nearby Little River Canyon, and it was amazing. (There is a more shallow wading/stream area on the other side of the paved parking lot for children that I highly recommend! Our babies loved it.) The only thing we didn't get to do, unfortunately, was explore the nearby adorable tiny town strip of Mentone. We just ran out of time! All in all, though, a wonderful stay. The security deposit was returned promptly. We wouldn't hesitate to do business with Julie again.

Batteries Recharged

My wife and I needed to get away for a few days and not have to think about anything. The owner was incredibly helpful in accommodating a crazy schedule. We explored Mentone, Cloudland Canyon and learned about Howard Finster (Google him for an amazing story) in Summerville. We had awesome meals at Wildflower Cafe and Canyon Grill. The house had everything we needed especially quietness with an amazing view that changes with the weather. We both thank you Julie.

Christmas vacation

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a secluded retreat, you are in luck. Everything was considered when the owners of this property prepared it for your family and friends. So much charm and personal touches. Family and children feeling the welcome touches. Seriously the view is out of this world, I've stayed in the Smokies numerous times while it is beautiful, Lookout Mountain allows for an unobstructed view of its gorgeous valleys. Would definitely stay here time after time.

Best I've stayed in.

  • 5 of 5

Truly my favorite place near Mentone. Been going for years and was best experience I've had. House is private and has so much charm. If you're looking for a pet friendly place the fenced in backyard is a lifesaver on really cold mountain nights.

Very Much Needed Getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was absolutely adorable. My husband and I enjoyed our stay to the fullest. This cabin is fully equipped with everything you need to make a "home away from home" feel, without any stress of course. The view from the large back deck is amazing. The location was superb. (If in the area, and you can drag yourself away from this gorgeous cabin, be sure to check out the Canyon Grill, You will not be disappointed!)

The owner, Capt. Julie was also a pleasure to speak with, offering the best hospitality,

We will definitely be back.
