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.

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!

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!

Reviewer Comments:

We had a very good weekend here and really enjoyed our stay at the River Outlook! It was just the two of us with our dog and it was the perfect relaxing weekend getaway,. We greatly enjoyed strolling around the downtown streets and riverfront of Chattanooga during one of our days here, but the other days we just enjoyed the property as well as exploring areas further away from downtown. There's a great winery about 30 minutes west of here that we'd recommend, they do wood fired pizza too! We spent time down at the dock and on the water (we brought our kayaks and fishing gear) everyday as well. As other reviewers have mentioned, the walk back up helped us burn off the calories from all the great meals we made in the well equipped kitchen. This place had more than enough space for us and our dog, in fact we could have brought 4 other people and everyone would have had their own bed! Great property, well equipped, far enough away from city life to completely detach, but close enough to explore it if that's what you're feeling. Highly recommended!
