About Julie Ellis/Captain Julie
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.
Julie Ellis/Captain Julie purchased this Cabin in 1987
Why Julie Ellis/Captain Julie 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.

Lookout Mountain Log Cabin
This two-story log cabin with a large deck is situated on a forested ridge, "The Brow," of Lookout Mountain which looks down into a lush valley. It is within an hour's travel of numerous unique recreational and educational opportunities and experiences and the city of Chattanooga, TN. The communities of Menlo/Cloudland, GA and Mentone, AL offered quaint shops and a few surprisingly good restaurants. Cell phone service, however, was iffy. The cabin itself was well-equipped and its decor was quirky and fun. A hummingbird feeder on the corner of the deck was busy from morning til dusk and provided hours of quiet entertainment. Every sunrise was characterized by low-hanging clouds cloaking the valley below, which would rise up the mountain-side and over our heads as the air warmed and we enjoyed coffee on the deck. It was one of the most peaceful and relaxing vacations we have experienced. Additionally, the owners gave permission for us to bring with us two special-needs four-legged family members, and they responded quickly to our email questions.
Lookout Mountain Cabin
My brother, sister and I spent 2 days relaxing in this wonderful place! Since we seldom get to spend time together, we just relaxed and drank coffee on the deck enjoying the breathtaking view! The cabin was well stocked with everything we needed for cooking, everything was very clean, and the beds were comfy. The outstanding thing about this cabin is the gorgeous view from the deck, and from inside, too! It is so peaceful and quiet here, and we loved the hummingbirds and other birds we saw. When I first stepped onto the deck, a hawk flew out right in front of me!! You’re so high, the birds can be below you! I “highly” recommend this cabin if you need a beautiful setting, and peace and quiet. We hope to come back each year.
The view, the privacy, the accommodations & amenities were amazing. I was sorry we were there for just the weekend!
