Great house, love that each bedroom had its own bathroom.

  • 5 of 5

Great family weekend. Love being in the mountains yet close to Chattanooga. A little disappointed there was no view of the valley from the house. The house sits across the road from the view and we were unable to see view due to trees. The house is close to the road but the road doesn't have much traffic so ended up not being an isssue.

Great cabin in an accessible location. Owners are incredibly nice and the accommodations were good

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a group of 10 friends. The house is very well put together and is incredibly charming. It sits up on the mountain, but you will need to do some hiking at one of the nearby trails in order to get a view of the valley. There is a natural waterfall called Foster Falls about 40 minutes drive, and it was definitely worth the trip. Downtown Chattanooga is also about 30/40 minutes away in the opposite direction.

The drive up the mountain is pretty easy coming from the Chattanooga side, but the other side of the mountain is a bit trickier to get up and down. There is enough parking for 4 cars comfortably on the gravel driveway. While it was a little steep getting out, as long as you take care, there are no issues, even getting a 4 cylinder hybrid in and out with no problem.

As far as the interior accommodations go, the house was great. A/C was fantastic in early June, and the lighting was great. Some of the bathrooms are nicer than others, but all of them are nice, and it easily accommodated 11 people.

The one slight, well, I hesitate to call it a drawback is the rural Tennessee internet. While I am of the mind that you shouldn't be heading to a wonderful cabin just to spend your time online, if you do need internet badly, you may want to invest in a hotspot, as we averaged about an hour and a half to load 10 minutes of video, or around 50Kbps on average. Cell reception was definitely better than expected​, so if you don't mind using data, you can find decent signal at a couple points in the house (even found some spots with 4gLTE with a Verizon phone).

The house is an excellent please for a group to stay, and the kitchen helped prepare large meals even with its slightly smaller size.

The owners live behind the property and were fantastic! They were happy to give us directions to nearby hiking trails and restaurants, and always made it clear that they were available if we needed anything. Checking in and out was quick and easy.

All in all it's an excellent cabin with a pretty easy drive to lots of unique areas. The house accommodates large groups easily, and functioned very well for a nearly week long home away from home. Definitely would recommend!

Very comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

This house is very comfortable and comes with all you need to cook in if needed. If you have kids there are only 2 TV's in the house, this is really just a FYI. Most of the time you are out enjoying the trails or downtown in Chattanooga. Owners are very easy to work with and very accessible if needed. Outdoor fireplace was great. We had 10 stay in the house, 9 adults and 1 child and we had plenty of room, and we held a college graduation party one night and had over 25 at the house and there was plenty of room with the deck. The bathrooms are very nice, they could definitely use some shelves near the sinks in a couple bathrooms as there is no where for woman to put their things.

All in all a great house and the drive from Chattanooga to the house was not a problem and takes 20-25 minutes.
