There are woods to walk thru; or choices of areas to rest and enjoy a quiet peaceful day on the property. So close to so many mountains, waterways and downtown Chattanooga activities.

Very cute cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great. The place is very well maintained and appointed. We really wanted for nothing. There is no cable or wifi, so if that matters to you be advised. The only con was that it is located on a relatively well traveled road. I was expecting it to be more secluded, which is my own fault because I really did not research. I just thought I'd mention it in case someone is expecting the same.

Clean & Convenient Cottage!!!

  • 5 of 5

While on our fishing trip to Chickamauga Lake, we stayed at the cottage. The property had all the conveniences that one would need while away from home. Lynn & Danny have a very well maintained property that we will definitely stay at again in the future. Lynn had to replenish her antiques and pictures on the walls after we left, as items are for sale and we took advantage of this opportunity. Thank you again for making our stay feel like home. We look forward to seeing you again!!!!

Nice Get-Away Cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was a last minute booking for us, and we're so very glad it was available. It was clean, had all the amenities (the washing machine is hot water only), and was really the perfect place for us. It was outside the hustle and bustle of Chattanooga, yet 40 minutes from the sites we went to see. A grocery store, Dollar General, and several restaurants were within 10 minutes of the cottage. Wish we could've stayed longer, and would like to be able to stay there again. If you're looking to stay that's just outside the busyness of city life, yet you can get there relatively quickly when you want, this is the place to stay.
