The property was everything it said it was. Jon the property owner was amazing and so accommodating. We had a family reunion to celebrate my father's 80th birthday and my daughter's graduation and we all had a great time!! The house is so spacious and well laid out. The pool, hot tub and sauna were definite hits!! Really can't say enough nice things about it!!!
All of the grandchildren!
We had a wonderful stay at the lodge with our daughters and grandchildren. Very special few days with all of us together. The front porch was amazing, the kids loved swimming as much as possible, throwing rocks into the creek and feeding the horses. Absolutely great place for a family!
Family Fun in a Lovely Part of the World
Our three families had a wonderful stay.
There were so many activities to engage in right on the property - which was perfect for active families.
Beautiful, spacious home and property.
The owner was very helpful and attentive.
Enjoyable family getaway for the long weekend
We had plenty of space and everything was clean and well taken care of. We enjoyed the pool and short drive to pocket waterfall. But mountain views were limited and a bit overpriced. But overall was an okay stay.
I enjoyed having your family and the other families stay with us at The Lodge of McClemore's Cove. We do everything we can possibly do to make sure each group has a wonderful time with us and creates great memories together. In 17 years of hosting families and groups we have only once received a 4 star rating and until now, never a 3 star rating. I would like to invite you to come back after the leaves fall off the trees as the 300 degree mountain views will be unimpeded by the leaves that provide us with shade. Thank you again for your visit and spending your family time with us.
Great for family reunion. everything we needed was there. Plenty of gorgeous hiking nearby.
McClemore's Cove is an outdoor enthusiast and nature lovers dream come true. Pigeon Mountain is a wildlife refuge area and is full of trails and adventures. The pocket waterfall is 2 miles away and is a gorgeous 80 foot waterfall that is only a 10 minute hike from the parking area. Pigeon mountain is also one of the top rock climbing destinations in the southeastern US and boasts the deepest cave in the southeast. Hang gliding is available off of Lookout Mountain as well as famous Rock City and Ruby Falls. Hiking to the creek on the property is always an adventure and wildlife viewing is constantly on display. The stars at night are incredible as there is no light pollution so make sure you brush up on your constellations. Driving through McClemore's Cove is a must see as the scenery is breathtaking.
Downtown Chattanooga is only 25 miles away and it boasts a never ending supply of family fun activities. Walk across the Tennessee River on the walking bridge and ride the carousel at Coolidge Park or let the kids play in the water fountains spraying from the ground. The Tennessee Aquarium, Creative Discovery Museum, IMAX Theatre, countless dining options of all cuisines make Chattanooga one of the top family destinations in the country.
Not to be missed for meals are the Pigeon Mountain Country Store and BBQ which is 5 miles from the lodge and serves great breakfasts and BBQ and burgers. The Canyon Grill is 15 minutes away on Lookout Mountain and has been picked as one of the top 10 restaurants in Georgia several times. Dress is casual and the food is delicious.

What makes this Lodge unique
Surrounded by mountains and wildlife The Lodge of McClemore's Cove is truly a special place to come and relax. Sit on the deck and unwind as the sounds of nature remind you of a slower pace. Watch the hawks soar or the deer grazing or hear the coyotes yelp at night and you and your youngsters become engaged with nature. Hike through the woods to the creek on the mile long nature trail and try to find the items on the scavenger hunt list. Look for animal tracks, fish, search for arrowheads, or just sit on a rock and be mesmerized by the sounds of the water flowing down the 30 ft. wide creek. Watch the sun rise over Pigeon Mountain and set over Lookout Mountain and then be prepared for an awesome sight as the night sky is illuminated by the stars and nothing else! Learn the constellations because you can see them. Where else can you roast marshmallows and sing by the fire as late as you like and not worry about bothering the neighbors? Pigeon Mountain (2 miles away) has a 10 minute hike to an 80 ft waterfall and also has Rocktown on top for rock climbers of all ages. It has miles of hiking trails but no houses. Cloudland Canyon State Park is only 15 minutes away on Lookout Mountain and it is worth the visit. There are very few places this private that specialize in large groups that can stay together. The Lodge of McClemore's Cove takes pride in doing all that it can to insure that each group has a memorable time for all the right reasons. Always clean on arrival and doing our best to make sure that everything is in good working order is our pledge to our guests. It is only 15 minutes to Lafayette, Ga. which has Wal-Mart, Bi-lo, and Shop-Rite for your grocery or fast food needs. Downtown Chattanooga is an easy 30 minutes with only 2 red lights and 3 stop signs and no traffic on the way. If you are not familiar with Chattanooga it is very family friendly and offers all kinds of attractions and restaurants. We hope you come to visit:)
