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.

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.

Reviewer Comments:

This is a lovely cabin sitting above the Tennessee River. The view is beautiful. It's a great place to get away and enjoy some solitude. This was also one of the cleanest rentals we have ever stayed in. Be aware that the road getting to the cabin is a bit precarious but otherwise everything about our stay was wonderful.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a great time here. The majority of the time was spent on the dock fishing with the kids (3 yr old and 6 yr old) and enjoying the scenery. We didn't believe the walk down to the dock would be that bad and boy were we wrong haha. It isn't for the faint of heart. We are in shape but the walk back up to the house was very difficult. That didn't stop us from making the round trip a couple times a day though haha. I am sure we will be revisiting River Overlook when we return to Chattanooga. Thank you for allowing us to stay in this beautiful house.

My family really enjoyed the stay at the Sky Box Chalet. It was very peaceful and relaxing there with some spectacular views of the river and mountains. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We would highly recommend this property.

Reviewer Comments:

Came to the River Overlook with my wife for some much needed alone time. We definitely got it at the River Overlook! Nicely furnished, very clean. The road this property is on is very narrow and winding with a slow, looooooong drive. Be sure to pick up food on your way into town.

Owner's Response: Thanks for getting away to River Overlook. Being directly on the river means only one road in and out - and narrow and winding for sure! We are glad you enjoyed your stay.
