Great place to stay on Lookout Mountain!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented the Mountain Top Retreat multiple times when family and friends come to visit. It is always clean and inviting. There is a well outfitted kitchen and comfortable living areas and beds. There is plenty of room to host family dinners and gatherings. You cannot beat the location, which is right next to Chanticleer Inn, Starbucks and Rock City. The owners are very accommodating and always leave some yummy treat. We will continue to rent the cottage each year.

Perfect Lookout Mountain stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was updated and well stocked. The location is perfect and the grounds of the B&B are well kept. There's a Starbucks within walking distance and great food options right at the bottom of the mountain. I would recommend this house to anyone looking for an easy getaway.

Great spot for my family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family totally enjoyed this home on Lookout Mountain. It was warm and inviting home that gave us a relaxing time for the entire family.

The kitchen was great for cooking vs eating out all the time. The bathroom were clean and the Master Bath is beautiful.

The location was great for visiting Lookout Mountain and the Chattanooga area. I would definately rent again and my family would as well.
