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.

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.

Reviewer Comments:

We had a very lovely time for a quick family getaway. The view is unbeatable and the fishing off the dock was wonderful! The fire pit by the water was a very nice evening treat. We loved the sunporch. The walk to and from the water was steep but doable (can check that off your gym list!). The drive on the last road to the house IS very curvy and bumpy. The last 14 miles took every bit of 40 minutes and that was not being too timid. It was worth it! We stayed in all weekend and relaxed and went to Chattanooga as we left on Sunday for a nice lunch at Puckett's Grocery. Totally recommend downtown Chattanooga for a relaxing stroll along the river.

Reviewer Comments:

Home is nestled right off the river. The dock was great for fishing but quite a hike up and down. A nice surprise to find a playground for the kids and we used the outside decks extensively. Home had all the necessities and amenities to accommodate our large family group. 30 minutes from Chattanooga.

Reviewer Comments:

Easy reservation process, clean rental, everything you needed they supplied for you. The view was amazing. I could sit on the all weather porch and drink morning coffee everyday! Pet owners be aware the hill is steep, our older dog had some issues with all the stairs, but it was a great experience.
