Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 6

This vacation rental and unique property is perched 125 feet above the Tennessee River in the famous Tennessee River Gorge. It has two decks (upper and lower) as well as a sun room facing the beautiful view of the river as well fabulous views of mountains in all directions rising up to 1200 feet.

To the east, directly across the river, is Raccoon mountain and to the north you can see the famous rock climbing wall called the “T” wall (35.069038, -85.398932). The upper deck has a table and chairs for your morning coffee as well as a charcoal grill. The sunroom has carpeting and comfortable wicker seating with pads. The Lower deck has two swinging wicker love seats with pads, a hammock and ceiling fans.

This vacation rental home is a 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath fully furnished home. The master bedroom on the main level hosts two twin bed connected with a twin bed bridge, actually making it a king sized bed. The sunroom and the master bath are also attached to the master bedroom. The main level also has the full kitchen and dining area, a half bath, and a comfortable seating area with sliding glass doors leading to the view and the upper deck.

On the lower level of this house you will find the other two bedrooms which have a bunk bed in each room with a twin bed on the top bunk and a full bed on the bottom bunk. The lower level also has a full bath, a laundry room and a comfortable seating area along with with a gas fireplace and a large flat screen TV, but no cable. It also has sliding glass doors leading to the view and onto the lower deck.

Maximum occupancy at all times is 6 people.

There is NO internet and the TV's are for video, dvds only, no channels.

This property is about 18 miles from downtown, but sometimes feels further because of the slow, narrow, winding river road. The view is fantastic however, and provides a wonderful way to slow down from hectic daily life!

DOWN ON THE RIVER If you decide to go down to the river, it is a little over 200 steps (wooden, concrete and large field stones) to get there. Once you get there you will find a huge dock, complete with seating all the way around the upper level and a fire pit right next to the river. The hike back up can to house can be considered strenuous with over 200 steps and a 125 foot climb.

Plan to unplug here as internet is not available.

The Chattanooga, TN-GA Metropolitan Area, is an area consisting of six counties – three in southeast Tennessee (Hamilton, Marion, and Sequatchie) and three in northwest Georgia (Catoosa, Dade, and Walker) – anchored by the city of Chattanooga.

Note: Most of our properties are rural and wooded. Please do not expect a perfectly manicured lawn. We cut a little here and there when we see fit to do so.

It was a great place to rest. A long drive from anything you might want to do. It would be amazing if you had access to a boat to explore the river.

Owner's Response: Thank you for coming to stay at River Overlook. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. It is one of the prettiest locations that we have. It is a long drive to the house from town but it is well worth it. The distance and the drive time are clearly explained in the description There are marinas that rent boats in our area. That could be an option for you the next time you are in Chattanooga. We hope that you will come back and visit again soon!

Reviewer Comments:

The house was very nice and very clean. We were disappointed in the porches cause of so many spider webs. There are a few boards that need replacing on the porch that could be dangerous. The steps to the dock is a CHORE. My husband would not let me go down. The view is nice, but if there were some trees cut down it would be exceptional! Our main issue was the spider webs. They were even on the big window in the living room on the outside it was not lovely looking out that window. I would go back if these issues were taken care of. If elderly ones are looking to stay here don't think you are going to be able to go to the dock. Too far.

Owner's Response: We are glad you found the house nice and clean inside and enjoyed the stay inside, our housekeeping team works hard and takes great pride in that! We appreciate you bringing the two slightly rotten boards on the bottom deck to our further attention. Maintenance has been watching them, but something smaller than 1' square in a 400 square foot deck is not dangerous for certain, but are sorry you were concerned. As for the spider webs, even routine cleaning outside a house in the woods on the river is not always successful with spiders making webs constantly. We will certainly be more aware and diligent about removing the webs between every guest. As for the steps to the dock, our very specific description outlines not only the number of steps, but also the elevation change; "DOWN ON THE RIVER If you decide to go down to the river, it is a little over 200 steps (wooden, concrete and large field stones) to get there. Once you get there you will find a huge dock, complete with seating all the way around the upper level and a fire pit right next to the river. The hike back up can to house can be considered strenuous with over 200 steps and a 125 foot climb." Again, we are glad you stayed and liked our services and the cleanliness of the home (why a 1 for that we are not sure), but why you would not recommend this house, after you said you would stay again if the webs were removed (which they were at the conclusion of your stay), is confusing.

Can't say enough about this beautiful place. Everything was perfect. Getting to the house isn't easy - but once you're there it's worth it!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at River OverLook. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. They always say that the road less traveled leads to the most amazing view! The house is in one of the prettiest locations on the TN River and The house is very much worth the drive! Yes it is a lengthy drive- down a narrow- some times one lane road, it is quite curvy with low visibility in spots, the road is not meant to be driven quickly, take into consideration the level of gas in the tank(No gas stations along Suck Creek Road) and occasionally you may have to move a random donkey or goat out of the way. It is all part of the experience in the area as we said in the driving instructions that we provided. Its well worth the Drive! We do hope that you will come back and stay with us again soon

Reviewer Comments:

The home is beautiful and very clean! View is amazing! The route getting back to the house is a bit weary- but once driven a few times you become a pro! While there, we enjoyed the views at Lookout Mountain/ Ruby Falls and loved visiting the Aquarium! Most nights we cooked in, however we enjoyed the delicious food at Mojo Burrito (near Lookout Mountain) and the Smoke House on Mont Eagle Mountain. Would recommend to someone who is looking for somewhere to have a staycation away from home!

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying at River Overlook. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The house is definitely one of the prettiest location wise and you never know what you will see on the "adventurous" drive to the house. There are several restaurants close to the house that are fantastic but it all depends on what you want to eat and we will be happy to recommend some other places the next time you come. We hope that you come back and stay with us again soon either at River Overlook or one of our other wonderful properties in the area.

7 girls vacationed here for a short getaway. We loved the layout and the dock! It is a hike down and back, but totally worth it. The drive from the bottom of the mountain to the rental is a solid 30 mins so plan accordingly. The owners were amazing as well!

Yes, you do get the "Step-master' workout when you go down to the River from the house but the view is amazing. We hope that you come back and stay with us again either at River Overlook or one of our other wonderful locations! Have a Great Day!
