About the property

We have a Beautiful wood cabin in the foothills of Lookout Mountain on Johnson Creek with beautiful lake views! The cabin is on over 2 acres lot at the Preserve on Lookout Mountain Resort in Rising Fawn, GA. We are just 35 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, but located in the mountains in a quiet retreat!

Half Moon is a 3600 sq ft cabin that can sleep 12-14 people. There are 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. There are 3 levels, including the main level, upstairs and full basement. The cabin features 2 full kitchens and living rooms, one on the main level AND one in the basement. There are 2 TVs and DVD players in the living rooms (no TVs in the bedrooms). The king master suite is located on the main level along with the washer and dryer and additional half bath. You will find 2 king bedrooms, a full bath, and including a sitting area upstairs. In the basement, there are bunk beds, a full living room, kitchen and pool table! There are also 4-5 mattresses with plenty of space for extra quests. Look at the pictures and you will love what you see!

If Half Moon Hill is booked, we have another, smaller possibility. It is VRBO# 443537

The cabin is decorated with a true classic rustic and western style! Located on a 2800 acres Preserve, providing peaceful settings and a private atmosphere. Renting the cabin gives you access to multiple fishing lakes that back up to Johnson Lake. There are miles of hiking possibilities and creeks.

We are 40 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, the Tennessee Aquarium, Rock City and Ruby Falls. We are 15 minutes from Cloudland Canyon State Park and many more outdoor activities! We are 20 minutes from Mentone. We are a hour away from the Sequatchie River in Dunlap, GA where you can canoe and ride the river.

Please note - there is NO WIFI or internet access at the cabin. Most guests get cell service and are able to access the data on their phones. This is a very quiet and peaceful setting, a short drive away from the main road. The cabin is in a secluded location - the perfect spot to "get away from it all."

**Due to the secluded nature of the cabin, this is not an ideal choice for medically fragile guests. While EMS is available, it takes a while for them to get to the cabin. The closest hospital is CHI Memorial Hospital in Fort Oglethorpe, GA (35 miles away).


Cleaning fee - $100

Peaceful and fun family get away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was comfortable and charming. Our family had plenty of room and lots of laughter while there. Rough road getting there, but so worth it! People were so nice to us, checked on us, helped us with directions, and made sure we were comfortable. We couldn't have asked for more.

Beautiful place . We will definitely be coming back

  • 5 of 5

Adults loved it. Kids started getting a little bored I would suggest an arcade game like the cabins in gatlinburg have or maybe adding a bumper pool table

Lovely cabin but hard to reach with rough dirt roads

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and the home was very clean and super spacious! It's about 30-40 min to Chattanooga area attractions (loved rock city and some great restaurants in Chattanooga) and that wasn't bad but the main road that you have to use to reach the cabin is a dirt road that is very rutty and you have to go super slow to not blow a tire . We had our mini van - truck would have been better -so no joke it would take us 15 -20 min just to get to the main road and there are no lights on the dirt road so coming home at night was no fun.

Lots of ponds to fish from (bass) and some nice areas just to hike/walk. Great open yard for the kids to play.

Downside other than the road was that the master bath only has a tub so if you are sharing with other families you would essentially have 2 showers (upstairs and downstairs) and bring your hair dryer.

The downstairs tv is an older tube tv and a bit small- we never even turned it on. We did love using the pool table but most of the sticks are missing ends and there was a big rip in the felt. It was fine for us and our kids though since we aren't pro's. We loved relaxing and watching a movie at night upstairs together and the kitchen was nice to cook in.
