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 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 Missionary Ridge

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.

Sweet Delight!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from Wednesday until Monday and were very happy with this lovely home. It was very neat and clean. Plenty of linens for all. The bed were very comfortable. The well-equipped kitchen was a pleasant surprise! The internet was great, too! The breathtaking views of Lookout Mt. were awe-inspiring even the smaller children would stop and look at the amazing views! At night the twinkling lights of Chattanooga were majestic. The quiet neighborhood made us feel like we were much more secluded than we really were! The parking was adequate, if somewhat a challenge for the flatlanders! Dan, the owner, was very helpful. too. He made sure we were happy and all was working well! We took their recommendation and dined at Sugar's Ribs and The Big Biscuit. Both were good, old fashioned, home cooked food! The Big Biscuit's owner was so nice and made the place memorable. Sugar's has goats outside, and a free juke box that delights the kids! We also enjoyed Sticky Fingers BBQ, and found it excellent. Also we went to Rib & Loin and were very happy with all three places! We also enjoyed Chickamauga Battle Field in Ft. Oglethorpe Ga., Ruby Falls and the Southern Belle River Boat dinner cruise. My wife is originally from Ooltewah and staying on Missionary Ridge was a thrill for her. All the history along the ridge is another reason to come back!!!

Great Family Time in Chattanooga

  • 5 of 5

My family spent 2 days at this home overlooking Chattanooga and found it to be great for our needs. This home has a newer updated kitchen, comfortable beds and furniture and nice showers. There were 10 of us and the house provided plenty of room. There are multiple televisions which were great for wind down time for the kids. Dan provided great communication and covered every detail. His food recommendations were spot on. Sugar Ribs is a top notch bbq joint and it is seconds from the house. Maybe the best spareribs I have ever had and very reasonably priced. The upper deck off the living area was a gathering place at night. The view of the city and sounds of cicadas was a perfect setting to enjoy good conversation. I would definitely stay here again.

Great Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

Came to Chattanooga for a family wedding and we chose this house because it was so close to our events for the weekend. It is perfect for getting to downtown quickly and our family loved it. We had 4 grandchildren and six adults and it suited us perfectly. I would highly recommend it. Beautiful view!!!!

We had a great stay. Everything is exactly as stated. Squeaky clean, fully equipped, spectacular view from Missionary Ridge across the lights of Chattanooga toward Lookout Mountain. Really, it couldn't be better.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We brought our teenagers for their spring break trip. The house was great, plenty of room. The kitchen was fully stocked. The view was wonderful. We loved sitting in the swing and watch the sunset. The house was about 10 minutes from downtown and 15 minutes from Lookout Mountain. Great Location.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wedding to attend in the Chattanooga area and Dan was very helpful in planning our trip and stay. The house was perfect, plenty of room, we had 5 people during our stay. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the appliances and tools you need to cook at the house, which is what we did most of the time. Rooms are clean and spacious and the view from the house is hard to beat! Would recommend this property to anyone wishing to stay in the Chattanooga area.
