Log Home in Beautiful Private Setting on 10 acres with Pond

Bedrooms 3
Separate WC's1
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8 max)

This beautiful log home is nestled in the woods in a peaceful and private setting located only minutes from town. Dunlap is a charming small town that offers many nearby attractions such as Fall Creek Falls State park to the historic Coke Ovens. Load up the family and visit downtown Chattanooga which offers such attractions as the Chattanooga Aquarium, Creative Discovery Museum, Chattanooga Lookouts, Historic Bluff View Art District, an array of restaurants, and many other attractions, including Riverbend Music Festival. Just a little further is where you will find Ruby Falls, Rock City, and the Incline Railway. All of which are just 40 + minutes away!

This 2 story home is well-constructed and less than 15 years old with many updates including foam insulation, C/H/A, large front porch for relaxing, cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors, gas fireplace, cable TV, wireless internet access, full kitchen with granite tops and stainless steel appliances... the perfect get-a-way.

This is a home. A home that has been generously opened to visitors. If you sit quietly on the front deck overlooking the pond, at just the right time of day, you might just see a deer or two wander by. You might, just might, in the quietness of the cabin hear your kids laughing and talking softly to each other long after ‘lights out’. Maybe you’ll take a hike around the property and suddenly find yourself having a meaningful conversation with your teen. Or you just might find yourself laughing and enjoying your family in simple ways that we sometimes forget in our hectic lives. That is perfection. And this cabin, in this setting, offers the opportunity to experience perfection.

Please Note: We offer many amenities with our cabin. However, we cannot guarantee availability of all amenities during every visit as maintenance and repair may be required at any given time. Please check with management for availability details.

About Doug battaglia

We purchased this home so we can spend our summers in TN with the family. We have had a family reunion at this cabin and do spend some holidays there. We have two self storage facilities in the town and do travel to TN a lot. We have other holdings in the area and develop some land to sell off smaller tracts. The home is complete and we really enjoy it. The kids love to spend time running around the yard and fishing in the lake. They catch lightning bugs and worms. We bring the dog sometimes depending if we fly up or not.

Doug battaglia purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Doug battaglia chose Dunlap

We bought this log home so we could enjoy it as a family. We have enjoyed many vacations here with our own children and recently decided to open this 'home away from home' to others!

What makes this cabin unique

Sitting on the porch in the morning with a cup of coffee and taking in all the beauty of nature is just unreal. The calmness and peace of staying at the cabin is one of the best benefits. It is like recharging your 'batteries'...It really makes me realize how blessed we really are!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Thank you for sharing your wonderful cabin with us. We enjoyed the fall creek falls - could of spent more time there exploring. Its the best park we have found to date. Also Cumberland Caverns are a must see. It beat Ruby Falls by a landslide! Rock City was absolutely worth it! El Metate is the bet restaurant for Mexican in TN!

This is a perfect vacation. Thank you so much for having and sharing your slice of paradise with our family!"

My first stay in a cabin. They had everything you could need. Only two staying for the trip but the cabin could accommodate so many more comfortably. Modern amenities and decorated beautifully. Plenty of kitchen gadgets and serve ware. There is quite a bit of privacy, but you can see the surrounding houses from the porch. Pretty creek on the land, and I was able to see several deer feeding near the pond. Customer service was the best! Highly recommended rental!

Visiting from Louisiana!

AMAZING! This cabin was secluded, private and CLEAN! Melissa made sure we arrived safely and kept in contact as needed. The bedrooms are HUGE! The place is spotless and has everything you need just bring your clothes and you're set! There is so much to do at the property and a twenty minute drive to FREE state parks. GORGEOUS! We had the best time sitting on the porch swing and using the hot tub. The kids loved exploring and saw so many animals and fish by the pond. We will be back next summer for sure.

Excellent!!!! Very Clean!!! Beautiful Setting!!!

  • 5 of 5

My mother and I stayed at this cabin in August 2014 for the World's longest Yard Sale.

This cabin is absolutely beautiful. And Extremely Clean. We had a few issues which was just one of those things. We got to meet the owners and they were super nice. The owners had been there staying and was doing so upgrades the day we arrived and the TV didn't work. But gave my mom and I some qualitity time together. But they had it up and going the next morning. Would HIGHLY recommend this cabin. Melissa was very helpful and super nice. Had no issues contacting her if we had any issues. The day we checked out, we rented it for next year.
