We wanted a relaxing, simple vacation and we got it! Location is great. Stayed with two children (3 & 1) and there were no issues however we did not let them go up the stairs. Michael was very helpful when we had questions. He addressed issued promptly, he even bought a grill for us to use! After being there, I think the price is slightly steep considering the house itself but if all you care about is getting away then I recommend it!

If you are planning on hunkering down and staying in 1 place for vacation, this could be a good fit. For the price, it could use some updates to make it more enjoyable including an outside grill, functional dvd players, an a/c unit in the loft bedroom and some DEEP cleaning. Several aspects of the house were not clean (kitchen and baths especially) We did have to do some cleaning and we found mold in the master Jacuzzi/shower. We did not feel clean, even after we showered. There were also several clumps of cob webs that had not been attended to in a long while. We did find that the return air filter was a few months beyond its useful lifespan. Without an ac unit, the loft bedroom is uncomfortably warm at night with no air to circulate, especially if you keep the ac at 77, as requested by the owner. As noted by other reviewers, the balusters on the loft bedroom stairs are far too wide to be comfortable with small children. Both stairwells are steep, even for the able bodied. The same can be said for the stacked bunkbeds in the other upstairs bedroom, which are perched a mere 4ft or so from the downward stairs to the first floor. It's also worth mentioning the exhaust pipe for the hot water heater, which carries hot gases out of the home, travels unprotected through the same bedroom. The grounds too, which look well kept in the photos, are in dire need of weeding, pruning and general upkeep. We did love visiting Chattanooga and all of the activities that it has to offer.

This home is situated in a very serene and beautiful mountain top and river view location. Michael was super helpful and met all of our needs. If you read a previous review on the dining chairs those were repaired or replaced prior to our visit because we had no issue there. The loft with the king bed does have wide openings in the railing that were a safety concern for our littlest kiddo but if you keep them off the stairs it shouldn't be a problem. Perhaps bring a baby gate? We enjoyed the sunroom and was able to feed a turtle that happened by while we hung out in there. The amenities are not super modern (except for the amazing washer and dryer!) but it is everything a family needs for a great vacation! We comfortably fit 6 adults and 2 children and prepared meals for all of us for a 4 night stay. I wish there was a shower in the half bath as the couple who stayed in the loft had to go into one of the other bathrooms to shower but if you work out a schedule it is a minor flaw.

Great lake/mountain cottage with a central location that's about 20 min from all the attractions like Rock City, Ruby Falls, etc. We only heard one car our entire stay but saw tons of eagles, buzzards, and hummingbirds. It is the best of both worlds and the porch is perfect for drinks with family or friends. Be sure to check out Riverside Catfish House just up the road for a a hole-in-the-wall fish house dinner (open Th-Su only).

Small family get together: 6 adults, 3 kids. Overall we had a good stay. The rental was family friendly with a gated from porch that was perfect for (well-supervised) toddlers while the adults could enjoy the view of the River. The one downfall on the porch was several wasps nests, even after be purchased wasp spray and treated all visible hives, the wasp re-appeared (and yes I appreciate that we are in the mountains, but there were two rather large active hives near the main entry way). The master bedroom was spacious and modern with a lovely 2 person soaking tub and very comfortable mattress and bedding. The main floor queen bed is raised relatively high on a storage frame, with a full bath. The loft attached to the queen guestroom houses bunk beds, and was warm and stuffy on arrival, but has an independent window AC unit. The loft king bedroom was a bit warm in the afternoon but cool enough by evening and the bed was comfortable. BEWARE of the loft stairs, they're notably steep, and at the top the rail slats are far enough apart I would be concerned for a child to stay up there unattended. The couch in the common area was great for napping, and we spent most of our family time enjoying the quaint Florida room (that does need a little dusting). The Florida room allowed us to enjoy watching a few raccoons at night and turtle in the morning. The 6 person dining table was perfect for meals, but watch for one or two chairs that have a screw coming through the padding/leather and will scratch you. The kitchen was the only real disappointing part. Many of the applicances left a lot to be desired. Two of the stove units did not function, the fridge didn't not close all the way unless forced, and the light above the stove was very temperamental. The coffee pot is not programmable/auto off, so remember to turn it off! (There was a Keurig too, but not economical with 6 adults.) There was ample silverware and table settings. Michael was quick to respond and inviting, offering suggestions of walking/ hiking paths and picking peaches on a property tree. I was turned off by a few of the 'house rules' including stripping the beds of linen/towels into the laundry room prior to leaving. Also rules included keeping the house at 77 in the summer. I understand the concern for the AC unit not to freeze, but I think 72-74 would be reasonable. Overall it was a great choice of rental and we would consider staying there again.

Response from Michael:
The refrigerator was hard to close because one of the drawers were not fully closed. I just replaced the drawer bracket under a shelf. It was over an hour round trip for this $35 bracket that holds the drawer in place. Forcing the door closed pushed the drawer sideways against the bracket until it broke.

The PEACE is on the porch! The view is EVERYTHING! It was a group of us, and we were on the porch everyday, taking in the view and enjoying the sounds of nature. We stayed for four days. The private dock was nice too, we even did a little fishing. It's a bit of a walk to the private dock, but it's worth it once you arrive. The directions provided in the cabin binder leads you right to it.

I travel as part of my job and I can honestly say that one of the prettiest areas I have seen is the "gorge" area of the TN river west of Chattanooga. You will find this as one of the most picturesque places to enjoy your morning coffee.
