About the property

3 Bedroom, 4 Bath River House With Mountain Views!

Unbelievable location right in the heart of the Tennessee River Gorge. Inside features an open floorplan with cathedral ceilings in the living room and kitchen and large spacious bedrooms.

Walk down to the water and experience the river for all it has to offer with swimming, paddle boarding, kayaking, canoeing paddling, and fishing or bring your boat and take advantage of the fully covered boat dock and slip.

If staying on land is more your style you can hang out and play some games in the large, flat backyard or go and check out some of the nearby hiking and climbing. The Pot Point Nature Trail is just 1 mile down the road or head back towards town about 3.5 miles and take a hike up Middle Creek.

Make sure to visit downtown which is only 11 miles from the house and features the Chattanooga Aquarium, Creative Discovery Museum, Chattanooga Lookouts, Historic Bluff View Art District, Hunter Art Museum and numerous excellent restaurants. If you are lucky you might catch one Chattanooga’s many festivals or events which are a weekly occurrence most of the spring, summer and fall. Just a little past downtown on Lookout Mountain you will find Ruby Falls, Rock City, and the Incline Railway.

If you're looking for a getaway that feels like you are miles away from anything, but actually only a few miles from everything, then the River Bunker House is just for you!

It was a nice place for 9 people. Plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

It was a nice place. The house accommodated 9 of us. Plenty of room for everyone. The upstairs bedrooms doors do need a way to close them and they stay closed. Other than that, it's well stocked, beautiful views, and great fishing of the dock and banks. Fire pit was nice, would have been nicer if there had been chairs down there for the fire pit. Beds were very comfortable! Kitchen was well stocked. Overall we had a very nice Thanksgiving in this big house!!

Beautiful Home and Views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed four nights in this lovely home during a beautiful fall weekend. The house was perfect for our party of six. The bedrooms, living area, kitchen and deck were very comfortable. The boat dock was perfect for our boat and our many journeys up and down the river. The best feature of this home was the upper back deck with the beautiful views of the gorge any time of the day. We hope to visit again!

Not enough value for the money

  • 2 of 5

The view of the lake is the main selling point about this rental. Overall the house was nice inside, although it was a weird layout. I think there's a lot of improvements that could be made to make it worth the money you're paying to rent it. I would've expected more upgrades to the house based on the ad that sold me on renting this property for my daughters wedding weekend. There were a lot of negatives about it. There wasn't enough toilet paper supplied. The hot water was strange because several people in my group had taken showers and wound up with cold water. I took mine a little while after them and was surprised to find there was any hot water. I think the shower in the bathroom beside the kitchen needs a completely new shower because it's very slick, you have to be careful when you step in so you don't fall. Sliding doors on that shower would help as well because as soon as you open the shower door water spills out everywhere on the floor. Also, this house is located in a noisy area in general, barking dogs across the street didn't make for a peaceful environment. Everyone loved the view from the back of the house, that's the most positive thing I can say about it because we weren't impressed with much else.

Unique property, great river view and access.

  • 4 of 5

Group of 13 had plenty of room to spread out. Used all sleeping areas provided from main bedrooms to bunk room, couch beds and couches. Kayaks and paddle boards were a big hit. Kitchen well stocked, we brought our own crockpot, really appreciated the outdoor grill. Neighbors dogs are large and did come out to greet us when we arrived but didn’t seem aggressive. Very narrow winding road drive slow and follow written directions from host. Overall a great time.

A beautiful spot for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your beautiful river home. The dock was so much fun for the kids to swim and paddle board, and relaxing for the grown ups watching them.

We had a blast cooking smores at the fire pit. And the kitchen and living room were perfect for enjoying time together.

The ping pong table was a nice touch.

Thanks so much for sharing your awesome place with us. I hope we can come back again soon!!
