About the property

GET AWAY FROM IT ALL at beautiful “Viewtopia”. This quiet secluded retreat is perched atop a scenic north Georgia ridge in Rock Spring, GA. The views are amazing and the peaceful solitude will surround you. This romantic retreat is nestled at the end of a winding private road where you may see deer and wild turkey grazing along the way. There are 3 bedrooms, each with its own private balcony. The master suite has a Jacuzzi garden tub overlooking the view. There is a wrap-around deck, sunroom and covered patio with hot tub all facing the expansive view across four distant ridges.

Viewtopia has four bedrooms (1 king bed, 2 queen beds, and 1 full bed). Downstairs sleeps 4, and upstairs sleeps 4. Upstairs and downstairs living rooms have gas fireplaces, and all bedrooms have electric fireplaces. There are 2 complete kitchens, fully furnished. The upper kitchen has a covered breakfast balcony. Downstairs you can shoot a game of billiards on a solid slate 7' pool table. There is plenty of outdoor furniture for your enjoyment, including a propane grill. Sip coffee as you watch the radiant sunrise or enjoy the glowing sunset with a glass of wine. Whatever you choose to do while visiting “Viewtopia”, we hope that your stay will be renewing and blessed. We welcome you to our “secret place.'

Smoking is not allowed indoors; however, there are plenty of decks and porches for smoking. : )

This place has everything!

  • 5 of 5

House had everything one could think of. Very well equipped. Had a tough drive up the mountain but well worth it. The views were incredible.

Perfect for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful stay at viewtopia! There was plenty of room for all of us to spread out, enjoy the views, and they had plenty of spots to sit and visit. It is at the top of the hill which is amazing for the views, especially at sunrise. We had no trouble getting to Chattanooga for the worlds half ironman and to go out to dinner. It was 10-20 minutes from grocery stores and places to eat which worked well for us. The house was clean and we were all able to cook, do laundry, and relax for a whole week. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Nice vacation house

  • 4 of 5

This house is very comfortable and large. It has two very well stocked kitchens. A nice pool table. The furniture in the house is very comfortable. There is a hot tub, but we didn't get a chance to use it (there were quite a few thunderstorms during our stay). The water does have a strange smell and doesn't taste so good, however bottled waters took care of our needs. So that really isn't much of a problem. We did not think the road up to the house was bad (I saw quite a few complaints about that). The house is very well stocked with supplies - there were bottled waters in the kitchen, lots of soaps (dish, dishwasher, hand, laundry), lots of paper towels & toilet paper. The views are amazing. We loved the sun room. A negative that I will comment on - we had a toddler and had a hard time finding a place for her to play and not get hurt. However, we did move the coffee table in the sunroom and it worked ok. Another negative is the distance to downtown Chattanooga - I think it is about 40 minutes. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and we are glad we vacationed at Viewtopia!

Plenty of space and wonderful views! A very comfortable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples, a child, an infant, and a dog with us, and the house was absolutely perfect for us to enjoy being together and have plenty of space for us to all hang out together, or to split up in groups. The view truly is spectacular- Pictures can't do it justice!!! There are little balconies with chairs everywhere, in addition to the main porch and patios, so if there are several couples, it's nice to each have some privacy sometimes, away from the rest of the group. There are no other houses past this one, so it really is a secluded location.

One thing we were not quite prepare for was the steep gravel drive up to the house. We knew it would be gravel, but we didn't realize it was going to be quite as steep and rugged as it is! We made it just fine, but we were slightly concerned, being in a low sitting car, on our first drive up.

We did a lot of cooking, and this is, hands down, the BEST, most well-equipped kitchen I have had in any stay in a HomeAway or Air bnb rental. (Plus, there are TWO kitchens! We used both ovens when making pizza one night.) Plenty of pots, pans, utensils, knives, cups and glasses (including wine glasses)... even a hand mixer, a blender, and a crock pot! We have stayed in too many places in the past that claim to have a "fully equipped kitchen" and barely had enough to somewhat do what we needed to do- Not the case, here! We were so thrilled with the supplies! They even had some bottled water for us, which came in really handy because the tap water has a slight sulfur odor to it.

It was also really nice to have a covered dining area outside. It was hot and humid during the day, but by each evening, it was cool enough to be just perfect to sit outside and enjoy a meal. However, bring bug spray!! We ended up with several bites, but it is in the middle of the woods on a mountain, so that can't be helped! Just be careful when opening and closing the doors, especially at night. If you have the lights on, bugs will be waiting to get inside!

There are also TWO sets of washers/dryers- one upstairs and one downstairs. If you have a lot of people staying together for several days, that'is a very nice feature.

Overall, a fantastic experience, and we would stay here again! It really did feel like home away from home.

***Oh, and I accidentally left something behind, and the owner texted me that day to ask where to send it. I thought that was so nice!
