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 Menlo

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.

Perfect get-away!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this cabin was perfect! We especially enjoyed the huge hot tub, the fire pit and the view from the deck. The beds were super comfortable and the kitchen well-stocked with anything we needed. We were also thrilled with the fenced in front yard for our pets. This cabin is close to many scenic areas (Cloudland Canyon, Little River Gorge) and the fascinating little town of Mentone. We'll come again.

perfect ralxing get-away

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house over our fall break in mid-Oct. It was absolutely perfect for the decompression that we needed. The house is exactly as it appears in the photos. A dozen different comfy places to curl up with a book. The kitchen is REALLY well equipped for a rental! Hot tub, fire pit, deck seating all fabulous. We had 4 people - 2 parents and 2 teens. It was a perfect size for us. The house sleeps more people, but I think you'd feel crowded with any more than 6 people total. The neighborhood, such as it is, was dead quiet. Fall had not yet come to Georgia - the world was warm, lush, and green (and humid - don't leave your bag of chips open overnight!).
