This new 3 bedroom / 2 bathroom home is now complete and ready for rental. Availability can change daily so be sure to check out our calendar.

Church groups, visiting families, executives checking out the area, scrap bookers, quilters, and any other function that desires a 'get-away' environment will benefit at a very affordable price per person. The house has a very open floor plan and the 2 car garage has been converted into a conditioned air activity space, to meet practically any function for groups.

The house has been built with full handicapped access and extra wide doors. Even the master bathroom shower enables wheelchair access.

The house is built on the side of a ridge and the deck about 30 feet above ground level which allows for an amazing view of the sunrise every morning and the valley between the ridge peaks. Listen to the Chattanooga choo choo pass by in the background.

About Mary Hoppe

This property was designed and built to become a retreat house. The Chattanooga area was and currently is lacking quality short term rental houses. We built this to fit our needs for visiting relatives and friends. We are offering vacant times on the calender to others.

Mary Hoppe purchased this house in 2009

Why Mary Hoppe chose Tennessee

This area is the fastest growing area of Tennessee. We are located in a remote area of the Chattanooga area. The town of Apison is a quiet and small farming community on the outskirts of the city. We are the alternative to the high prices, noise, and congestion found in the city.

What makes this house unique

Sit on the deck high above the tree tops or on the swing near the top of the hill and enjoy the views. Watch deer, fox, and other wildlife pass by throughout the day. Centrally located to all the Chattanooga attractions and Whitewater rafting/ tubing in the Ocoee area. Easily experience it all from one location.

Loved the experience and trains!

  • 5 of 5

We came for a family memorial and couldn't of felt more at home. Mary the owner was courteous and able to answer any and all questions. There was plenty of room for all of us to be comfortable and have personal space. The meeting room was great for family to plays games!! Thank you so much. I will definitely return if ever in the area!

Awesome!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was awesome!!!! The graduation we were attending was in Dalton GA., even with the house being in TN., we were only 28 minutes away.

There were nine adults and a 2 month old, we had plenty of room. The back deck was used constantly, in fact we saw at least four deer the first morning.

The day after graduation we had the locate family over for a barbecue, and used the large meeting room, which is set up with plenty of tables and chairs.

There is a train that runs pretty regular during the day and night, but we got use to it, in fact became a conversational piece! Hence the name of the property "ChooChoo House" I would assume!

We would definitely rent the house again!!!!

Wonderful for Family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great experience at the Choo Choo House. Lots of room for family. We had a family reunion dinner in the Meeting Room with all the tables, loved the view from the balcony when we ate breakfasts. Mary is a great person to work with and very honest.
