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 Apison
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.

Family Christmas at ChooChooRetreat
Really nice property and great host. Location was perfect for family getaway, but also close to local attractions. Would definitely recommend this to any family or group looking for a relaxing nice place to stay. Thank you Mary for allowing us to stay here to build on our family holiday memories.
Great House for Friends & Family
This house meet all of our needs. We had 3 families staying and there was plenty of room for all of us. We even hosted Thanksgiving Dinner for our small football team in the meeting room. Mary was great and kept us well informed. We would highly recommend this property.
Very comfortable for 6 to 8 people. Can fit 10. Gorgeous fall view off back deck. Plenty of tv's and entertainment.
Thank you for that wonderful review. Yes, that view of the back deck is amazing. If you get up early enough the sunrises are gorgeous.
Home Away From Home
This was cheaper than a hotel for the 9 of us for 3 days. The house is big, all the amenities needed and the owner was awesome. Would book again.
Thank you for that awesome review. We look forward to your return.
Thehouse was just as it was pictured. The driveway is a bit steep, but no problems getting to the house. Our stay was perfect!
Thank you for your wonderful review. The steep drive is what gets you up to those beautiful views.
