Private lodge on Lookout Mnt., with outdoor spa/hot tub hidden above downtown Chattanooga. The lodge adjoins the 3000 acre National Military Park between Ruby Falls and Rock City. This lodge is secluded, but yet convenient to St. Elmo and downtown /Southside. An Uber ride to downtown/Main St. is approx. $7 - 9 . (**Please note that I welcome all that are respectful of my property and rules, regardless of age, race, or sexual orientation.)

The space

I recently renovated this home and live here alone. The home is almost 30 years old. I am offering private room(s) and bath(s) like a B&B but do not cook breakfast. I try to have healthy cereal and eggs in the refrigerator for guests to prepare at their leisure. You are renting a room and not the entire property.

The bedroom has a low contemporary platform bed with new memory foam mattress, 400 threat count sheets, hardwood floors, large closet, lockable door, and ceiling fan. The bathrooms appear to be original, with tile flooring, fiberglass tub shower, window, and granite covered vanities. There is NO carpet in the house.

I encourage guests to use the common areas and not stay in their private rooms. Other than your private room, I want this to be a very casual chill communal environment for guests.

Guest access

Please do not block the garage door closest to the front door. The front door lock is digital with a private access code.

The home has a shared kitchen (light cooking only please, toaster, microwave, and coffee). *Limited space available in the refrigerator and freezer. The living spaces are also shared - living room - dinning rooms - sun room - reading library room decking spa and yard.

The outdoor spa/hot tub and shower are semi-private (and clothing optional for the more adventurous guests). Spa only open during daylight hours for guests because the stone pathway is not lighted and can be dangerous. I do not want anyone to fall down and get hurt.

The terrace/basement level is currently closed.

Interaction with guests

This is a private lodge set up like a B & B. I live here alone on the main level and sometimes rent out 1 or 2 bedrooms on the upper level, which are NOT adjoining (adults only). I work and try to enjoy outdoor activities, so we may not cross paths while you are visiting, or I may be out of town, but should be available by text message, telephone or email. I try to have coffee and healthy cereal available but I do NOT prepare breakfast for guests. I enjoy guest interaction with morning coffee or drinks in the evening when I am home. I want everyone to feel comfortable with the casual communal environment, but you are also free to stay in your private room if you prefer.

Please tell me a little about yourself, why you are planning to visit Chattanooga, and what you are interested in doing while you are here. I prefer guests who are looking for an interesting experience.

Other things to note

I have epb fiber optics high speed internet and internet based television only with access to pretty much ever television show and popular movies. There are no televisions in the bedrooms. There are televisions in the common area living room(s) to encourage guests to enjoy the whole house rather than just their private room. This property is best suited for open minded individuals who are comfortable with a casual communal environment and that are looking for something different, adventure, and an escape, yet very close to all the action downtown.

I very much enjoyed my stay at Rodney's place. Waking up feeling like I'm in the middle of the forest in a room that gets nice and dark at night made for a very restful stay. I loved that there was a hike I could do right outside the front door!

Rodney was helpful, accommodating and personable. The view, secluded location and stone structure was just like the pictures...awesome! The back porch was super. Bobby

The place is gorgeous, and the listing is spot on. Everything was really nice. The only issue we had was my small car didn't like getting out of the driveway, but we just planned our day ahead of time so that we weren't coming in and out. It's definitely not a deal breaker because the house is gorgeous! Rodney was welcoming and encouraged us to make ourselves at home. We had a private bathroom. And the room has a big window that we could open to enjoy the cool breeze. The house is no more than a 15 minute drive to almost anything in Chattanooga, but far enough away from the city that it was quiet at night.

If you're like me and still scrolling through reviews trying to decide where to stay in Chatanooga, you can go ahead and stop now. Book this airbnb while it's still available! Perfect location on lookout mountain, close to all major attractions, gorgeous property and house, very clean, easy, accessible, host is very friendly and available. Everything beat our expectations. So many good things to say, just book it and enjoy!

This peaceful getaway is in the mountains and feels isolated with deer and lighting bugs, but it's a 10-15 min drive to downtown! Close to good food, brew (Moccasin is delicious and a blast), and attractions like ruby falls. We enjoyed how welcoming Rodney was as well as how clean and comfortable the home was. We would love to book again next vacation. Total gem.
