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.

Great cabin and beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with two other families and our kids. We only ventured out to Desoto one time because the view was so beautiful, we all wanted to stay and relax on the large deck! The hot tub was so nice to have at night. We all slept comfortably between the three bedrooms and living room. The kitchen was functional to cook all of our meals for 6 adults and two kids, and we all had room to sit together and eat. Great stay!

Owner's Response: Sounds perfect. We have made sure that our guests are sleeping in comfortable beds great linens. Of course that adds to the already extremely relaxing atmosphere. Glad you took advantage of the hot tub for even more relaxation. hope to see you back at Ridgetop again.

Best view ever!

  • 5 of 5

The view from the deck is amazing. The valley and mountain views during the day are sweeping and I've never before been able to see so many stars in the evening. The fire pit on the deck was an added bonus, along with the house being so well-stocked with supplies.

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.
