About Dave Bolling

Dave and Carole are semi retired from the ministry. Carole still works 2 days a week as a church secretary.

Dave is still a singer / songwriter and an all round handyman maintaining the Chalet, the Suite, and a hunting Cabin while making fossil reproductions and recording music.

We love to meet new people and hospitality seems to be our gift.

Dave Bolling purchased this chalet in 2004

Why Dave Bolling chose Rising Fawn

There is none like it. It is not your 'Typical' cabin. It is a spacious and inviting Chalet. It is like home away from home. We strive to provide everything to make our guests' stay a memorable one.

What makes this chalet unique

We are minutes from major city (Chattanooga) with many vacation activities but still so private that Dave and Carole are the only neighbors.

We are right on a paved road so access is great even in winter.

Our prices cannot be beaten! Everyone marvels that we do not charge more.

We are your friends while you are here. You are our valued guests. Seldom do we have to ask someone else to welcome you.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Very comfortable, beautiful view, easy to do business with, can't wait to visit again! Unexpectedly had to bring my adult son, who is confined to a power wheelchair, along with me on a leadership retreat for 5 girls on my It Works! Team. This is one of THE MOST wheelchair accessible places I've ever stayed with Cody. I had to bring a hoyer lift and had no trouble at all getting him in and out of bed...tile floors, plenty of space to move around. Also different areas to enjoy, so he didn't have to be confined to a room full of women. The deck was wonderful for dinner, hanging out, and coffee at sunrise. Beautiful scenic drive, about 35 minutes, I think, to Rock City Gardens. We also really enjoyed a really nice, upscale restaurant, Canyon Grill, just 9 minutes down the road, also very accessible. Great team dinner there. Don't be put off by the prices. Get the whole catfish and a couple salads, or some other entree to share. Bring your own wine and corkscrew! That was fun, as my team was from different regions of the country, and I was able to bring some local wine and share a taste of my home with them. Very good value, just a wonderful experience. Thanks Dave and Carole:)

What a view!

  • 5 of 5

Great location! We were at the top of the valley and the view looking down was fantastic! We saw the sunrise from the deck the first morning. Others stayed inside because they were cold but there were plenty of large windows on the back of the house.

Property is well maintained and they even had instructions on how to use the fireplace and other misc things that really made our experience even better.

We went to Cloudland Canyon State Park which is less than 10 minutes from this driveway to the parking area. Another day, we went to Ruby Falls which was about 30 minutes away. Great location for going to any of these places. You can go by interstate or highway/town so whatever scenery you prefer on your drive is available.

Absolutely wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! I can't begin to say enough positive things about "Above the Clouds". It was such a clean, warm and relaxing place for my family to enjoy and unwind. It has a very home-like feel. The view was SPECTACULAR - especially from the hot tub! :) Dave and Carole are just so thoughtful and absolutely FABULOUS! They have thought of everything to help you enjoy your stay. We visited with them for a short period of time, and they felt like dear friends. They assisted us with things to do and places to see. They have movies, games, binoculars, satellite and very fast, dependable wifi! They were such blessings to us! Dave also has a fantastic musical gift - as one can hear on his CD. I cannot recommend this place enough. Do yourself a favor, and stay with Dave and Carole! We will DEFINITELY be back!

We enjoyed the stay.

  • 5 of 5

The home was just as shown and described. I stayed with my children and grandchildren. There was 10 of us total and it was very spacious and comfortable. We were there to celebrate Christmas together and it was nicely decorated for the holidays. The only disappointment was no dry firewood and we were looking forward to a nice bonfire. Next time we will plan ahead to bring firewood.

Family Stay

First, Dave and Carol are amazing people. Very responsive and attentive to any need your family might have. The view is over a canyon and pretty spectacular. It's a short and easy drive to Chattanooga so easy to get in the activities there and head back for some hot tub time and a movie.

The home is well equipped and offers many "homey" touches.

The finest spot on the mountain. Want a romantic setting for two? Or a restful spot for the family to get away from it all? Above the clouds is a stand alone chalet. This lovely setting is quiet and peaceful, yet close to many points of interest in North Georgia and Chattanooga. We are located right on the bluff overlooking a 7000 acre valley. We are right on a paved road but completely private.
