The main floor is made up of a Bedroom with a Local Artisan crafted Queen Log bed, closet & the main bathroom with shower & tub just a few steps away. The mirror in this bathroom is also handcrafted by a local artist & made of local woods & branches. Also in this bathroom is a washer, dryer.

Moving on to the full kitchen, that has a full sized, side by side refrigerator/ freezer with ice maker, electric range with oven & toaster oven. all pots, pans, dishes, glassware & silverware & service ware. Also, for your added relaxation is a brand new dishwasher. No drudging away over dirty dishes. You are here to relax.

The living room area with an entire wall of windows & pine cathedral ceiling is perfect for relaxing with a book, or to enjoy a Movie on our 40 inch, flat screen TV with Dish Network, Satellite service. The corner electric fireplace/heater is just what you need during cool times to take the chill off. In warmer times, use just the flames to feel as though you are sitting by a campfire. We have central Heat & Air as well . The stairs lead to the loft bedroom & another wonderful local Artisan Art piece is there to greet you. It's an iron railing designed with a family of Buzzards to delight & protect you from harm.

The loft is made up of a private bathroom with Shower, a full sized closet & another handcrafted, Queen log bed. The view from this perch is beyond belief. It goes on for miles.

Out on the back deck is a wonderful relaxation area with a table for outdoor dining , Chairs to Relax & the hot tub. The view from out here is amazing. You can actually see 4 States from here. To the right, just off the deck is the BBQ area, & a trail that leads to our new Swing, Adirondack Chairs, a Hammock ,Rock formations & more beautiful views. The front yard is full of trees & boulders & great for exploring. The front deck can be a private get away if too much activity out back leaves you needing some alone time.

We are 5 min. from the 2nd largest Canyon in the US, Cloudland Canyon. The Hiking is amazing & there are several waterfalls there for you to enjoy. Ft.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Miss Gail made our get away that we sorely needed a breeze! The Cottage is well stocked so all you need is your Food & toiletries. We never left the property as we wanted to Relax & unwind. PERFECT!

But if you did want to take a 30 min. drive up to Chattanooga to eat or take in the sights, it would be no problem.

Fantastic views. Excellent location. Great property.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay. The view was fantastic! It looks out over a valley and to the Chattanooga National Forest mountains. The trees frame the view from the swing. The moss covered boulders that are scattered throughout the path to get to the swing and around the home are beautiful! The view from inside the home is fantastic, we were amazed at how clean the windows were. Loved being on the cliff. Loved the drive to the home the hair pin turns as you climb up to approximately 1800 ft elevation. Driving into the wooded area to get to the home was fun and like an adventure because of the "off road" path. Primitive yet not. We had rain every day. However, it was nice because we were in the clouds. How often do you get to say that!? The clouds would lift and you can see the gorgeous peaceful valley.

The home was very clean and sturdy! She has everything for your cooking and serving needs. The grill was pristine, brother in law enjoyed grilling with it. The showers were very hot. Everywhere you look in the home she has something to grab your eye.

The location and drive to more congested areas is easy and provides amazing views.

The state park is a must see. We hiked 2 days there, hiking down to the falls wonderful. I would recommend if you have an extra car to park at the Silltons Gulch Head parking area (in park the map calls it Trenton parking) Then you don't have to hike the 600 steps back up to main park and you can enjoy seeing Mother Nature at its finest.

Did I mention quiet. VERY quiet! Oh except for the roosters crowing, which We found enjoyable! Again, how often do you get to hear that!

If you have a question Gail is very quick to reply, she has all questions and directions laid out in clear view and well explained.

(My sister dropped her husky off at Sundog kennel/spa. We highly recommend them).

Pictures give you just the beginning of this wonderful cottage.

Truly the owners have put their heart into Buzzards Roost. The home feels like home. It is very well supplied with just about anything you would need for your stay. The view from the deck is awe inspiring. Sit on the deck with your morning coffee or enjoy an afternoon drink. Very peaceful . We are so glad I choose this home over others I viewed. We were in the area for a family wedding at a nearby winery. Other family members stopped by and were jealous of our place. I'm pretty sure Buzzards Roost will be their selection for the next time they want to be in the area.

Just a few words of caution; and this is due to the mountain location: the circular drive may be a little difficult to navigate, the first step up are actually stones so be careful they may be a little wet.

We are so thankful to find this little piece of home away from home. We hope to make it back to book Buzzards Roost again.
