Have you ever found a VRBO rental you fell in love with online only to be dissapointed when you arrived because it was NOTHING like the pictures? Well, we have been too when we have traveled. You DO NOT have to worry about that here!
When you are trying to decide on the perfect home for your family and friends don't you want it to be the best? Really think about what will benefit your needs. Think about working all week and knowing that when you reach your destination it needs to be a time where work is so far away you can't even see it. Sure we may be 30 minutes south of Chattanooga but we are within 5 miles of I-75. Trust me it's worth it. We are picky owners. We promise you will not find a cleaner, better equipped home. Be ready to be impressed.
First you will love Choo Choo Lodge Because it is located on 20 beautiful fenced in acres. The front porch wraps the entire home and was even built around the trees! You can go from the home to the pool or hot tub and your feet never touch grass. The air is cleaner here, the birds are clearer, the peacefulness is amazing. Whether you are sitting on the front porch listening to the wind chimes and waterfall, laying around in the home watching TV or hanging out in the game room there is always a place for everyone and you will be relaxed. We know everyone's idea of a vacation is different and we took that into consideration when planning out our vacation home. Our home is where nature and luxury meet! We are conveniently located within miles of I-75. Don't miss out on this home. Our pictures are updated often. You will not be disappointed! NO PETS!
Have a travel trailer? You can bring it to our property. Nice parking area in the trees on a circular gravel drive. Additional fee applies!
We have 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. Our home is beautifully decorated and waiting for a new family to love it each week. You will love our swimming pool,(Season permitting) hot tub, and trails. We also have a bonfire area.
As you enter our property you are entering a whole new world. When you pull up you will see our quaint waterfall, enjoy the sounds. Relax your on vacation!

'THE COVE AND THE GARDEN ROOMS' are both located upstairs and share an all granite custom bath with Jacuzzi tub and separate shower.
'THE COVE'- (upstairs) this room is beautiful with a queen size bed, a leather chair and ottoman and a cute built in bunk! A child or adult can use this but I would recommend a child. Pool view. 32' lcd flat screen tv This room can sleep 2 adults in the queen and 1 child or teenager in the built in bunk. Chair and ottoman could be pushed together to accommodate a toddler.

'LIVING ROOM' You will enjoy the leather sofa (reclines), love seat (reclines) and recliner. 50' lcd flat screen tv. You could sleep someone on this sofa if you needed to however, it is NOT a pull out sofa.
The living room and kitchen are an open floor plan. You will be able to socialize and relax at the same time. The dining room houses a 6 person bar height table. The bar has 4 more barstools for seating. There is a leaf under the bed in THE CUBHOUSE that you can put into the table and bring the 4 barstools into the dining room so you can eat together.
The kitchen is fully equipped with anything and everything you can use to help you enjoy the comforts of home. French doors open up to the back deck.
There is a gated beautiful walkway to the pool. (for safety of children) enjoy the wonderful views of the night sky and stars from here as well as the wonderful amount of sunlight.
The hot tub is just a short walk down the wraparound porch to a beautiful octagon deck.
'THE CABOOSE' You will love the detached garage which houses the 'game room' equipped with pool table, ping pong table, fooseball, board games and a table for playing cards! (Note this is a detached 2 car garage and is completely separate from the home.)
Get back to nature. You are within miles of the interstate however you wake up to raccoon's, squirrels, birds, sometimes you will even see wild turkey and deer!
No smoking in any indoor area. You will be fined $250.00.
Trust us. You don't wanna miss out on this beautiful home!

Our daughter was graduating from UTC’s Physical Therapy Program, and we live in SC, so we needed a large house for family members. Choo Choo Lodge was perfect! We had 10+ adults and a couple of teenagers, and we had plenty of room. We all had a blast in the game room, and we enjoyed the pool and hot tub. The house was well-equipped with everything we needed for our weekend. We also enjoyed the lovely porch and rocking chairs. There is a nice fire pit area that we didn’t have time to use. We hope to come back sometime and spend a week here! Chattanooga is close by, and is a great city!
Everything was very nice!! We loved our stay.
Wonderful property for kids to play!!! Comfortable beds, plenty of space!!
Awsome weekend !!
It was very clean and the ammenities exceeded what we expected. We did have a plumbing issue but it was resolved immediately. It was a memorable occasion for my family.
Everything was perfect.
Our softball team could not have had more fun being away from the fields.
Beautiful home, amazing views!
This home is a perfect getaway. Even though it is minutes from all Chattanooga offers, I promise you will enjoy relaxing at the Lodge just as much as exploring the city.
While you are there, make sure to catch the sunrise at least one morning—Breathtaking from the front-porch rocking chair!
Spacious, private, cozy, comfortable, the owners have thought of everything!
Located just a short 30 minute drive from Downtown Chattanooga, the serenity and peacefullness of our home beckons individuals and groups. You are far enough away to have peace yet so close to all local attractions like Lake Winnepesaukah, Rock City, Ruby Falls, The Incline, Southern Belle Riverboat, The Aquarium, Creative Discovery Musuem, Lookout Mountain, Calhoun Outlet Malls, Tennessee River and so much more!
