About Michael Della Polla
Ex Navy A-7 pilot working for airlines is now "pension-less" . I have purchased this property because I think it is one of the prettiest areas I have been to and I have been all around the world. It is an ideal family vacation spot with kids or a family reunion.
Michael Della Polla purchased this Lodge in 2009

Damage and incidentals

Spacious location on a hill above the river with beautiful morning views but needs some TLC.
Family really enjoyed the house however it needs a few things done to it. Enjoyed the large porch and large living/ dining area. Has two hot water heaters so no problem having six folks taking showers. Washer and dryer is great to have. Also brought a chromecast and used that for TV. Glad I did since it had basic TV only. Has a nice dock with two slips to park boats. Bit of a walk downhill to the dock but not bad either. Would love to rent this place in the summer. Actually has two king beds, one in the master and one in the loft. That was nice. Has individual decks off of the loft and master.
Sky light in kitchen began leaking water during a hard rain. Fair amount of spider webs inside house. Needs kitchen towels and some organization of kitchen utensils. Half bathroom door would not close and needs a new door handle. Front door had trouble staying shut. The master bath has a jacuzzi tub with a shower however you have to step down over a foot to get in it. Not practical for my aging parents to take a shower. Needs some furniture update as the seating in the living room is just ok. Loft gets noisy and could use another privacy curtain.
Overall, great price and location but needs some TLC. Would rent again tho!
The house inside and outside has spider and cob webs.The yard and house are not being kept up. The house needs to be cleaned. No cell service.Very spotty wifi.The dock is not easy to get to. The steps to get to the dock are very unstable.
Could definitely have potential with the right management company.
The view was priceless!
Everything was great, we all really enjoyed our stay. The view was amazing, the cabin accomadated the 6 of us nicely.
Great family vacay!
The entire family enjoyed themselves! We saw all the Chattanooga sites and rested at cabin at the end of the day.

Sinks stopped up in bathroom ,I had to unstop them , cobwebs all over the place . Porch & grill was dirty .. if these things are fixed would stay again. Great veiw !! Storm came up lost power , had to leave a day early!!
You can enjoy the mountains and the river while being just minutes away from downtown Chattanooga. Hike the property, go fishing or bring your boat to enjoy the river. With an abundance of beautiful mountain and river views, don't forget your camera. Spelunking - Raccoon Mountain Cave & Ruby Falls, minutes away. Dining & Entertainment - Downtown Chattanooga & Lookout Mountain, 15 minutes. If it is quiet you want, we are off the beaten track. You can curl up on the porch swing & read a good book. If it is cold or rainy, you can curl up on the sofa in the sun room and still feel like you are out of doors. Beautiful all year round!
