About the property

Three bedrooms, three baths, two living rooms, wet bar, two decks plus patio.

Ridge Retreat is a wonderful vacation rental house located on historic Missionary Ridge. The house is only two minutes off of Interstate 24 at the East Ridge Exit, right above Sugar's Ribs. All the attractions in the Chattanooga area are a very convenient short drive away. You can be to the Chattanooga Choo-Choo in less than 10 minutes, and downtown at the Aquarium in less than 15 minutes.

The kitchen is fully equipped with most everything needed to prepare meals, and a gas/charcoal hybrid grill just out the door on the side deck is also available. The three bedrooms have comfortable queen size beds. The Lazy Boy sleeper sofa in the downstairs living area has an inflatable air mattress, making it very comfortable as well. Two futons, one upstairs on one downstairs provide additional sleeping accommodation. There are three full bathrooms. All linens and towels are provided. The downstairs also has a wet bar for relaxation, or step out the door onto the patio and enjoy the bench swing while looking out at the gorgeous view of Lookout Mountain.

Clothes washer and dryer in the laundry room of the lower level is available for your use. Laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, paper towels, tissue, soap and shampoo are provided as well.

Ample off street parking easily accommodates 5 vehicles, with room for at least twice that many.

Missionary Ridge is an excellent area for walking, jogging, and bicycling with all the historic markers and monuments to view. Bragg Reserve, the site of the Confederate Headquarters during the Battle of Missionary Ridge is only a mile from the house up South Crest Road.

About Dan Cooper

My wife (Judy) and I live in Augusta, GA. We purchased this home while I was working in Chattanooga. We love Chattanooga and now that we are retired we use the house as a second home and enjoy sharing it with our guests who seem to love it as much as we do.

Dan Cooper purchased this house in 2008

Why Dan Cooper chose Chattanooga

The million dollar view is one of the biggest assets of this house. Whether looking out over the Chattanooga Valley and at Lookout Mountain from one of the decks, from the swing on the lower patio, or through the windows from inside, it is just beautiful.

The house itself is very roomy and cozy. The two living areas work out well especially for families. The youngsters can watch TV downstairs while the grownups enjoy peace and quiet upstairs.

What makes this house unique

The location on Missionary Ridge is very special. We are just off prestigious South Crest Road with it's multi-million dollar estates. It is a very peaceful and quiet setting away from the hustle and bustle, but still very close and convenient to all the places you want to go.

Great Holiday Get-Together!

  • 5 of 5

Every year the family gets together over New Year's. For the women they appreciate plenty of beds and baths for everyone. For the guys they wanted ESPN to watch the playoffs. Everyone was happy. This property has it all. As an extra bonus there was a DVR. We were able to enjoy the day in Chattanooga, and still catch up on the football games. The property has great views, but still close to town. The owner has supplied everything you need. No last minute running to town for garbage bags, and paper towels. We would stay again, and recommend it to you!

Great family weekend getaway!! Ridge Retreat was a life saver!! The 3 bedroom 3 bath house worked perfect for us. 6 adults and 4 children, we all plenty of space, but was cozy at the same time. The location of this house on the ridge overlooking the city was perfect as well. Close to all the downtown and area attractions. Easy access from the interstate. Plenty of room for our 3 cars. House is very well furnished with everything one would need for your stay. Owner was very accommodating and made it easy to book. We would stay here again and would recommend you do the same! A big thumbs up!!

Guys Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We booked the Ridge Retreat house for a guys weekend with friends from KY and GA. Great location! The house was well equipped with a good sized kitchen, grill and bar area downstairs. There was plenty of room for 5 men to sleep comfortably. Having a house versus a hotel was a great call for watching football and hanging out as a group. Overall, the house was well kept and in good shape. Will book this property again for trips to Chattanooga.

My family of 10 recently visited Coops retreat! 6 adults, 2 young adults, and 2 children. We found the house comfortable and spacious, the 3 full baths helped with that alot! It basically has 2 master areas, the "master bedroom" and the downstairs had an entire suit with a bedroom a bath and a whole other living area! The thing that stood out the most to us was the fact that the house was so conveniently located to downtown. 10 min from EVERYTHING. And the house was so easy to get to, not like some mountain stays where just getting to the house is a chore. The sunsets are a must see, the owner made the booking seamless as well! The house felt private though it has neighbors, which was also nice. No complaints or regrets. Enjoy your stay.
