quiet and clean

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is amazing. Seems pretty new. Overlooks meadow where we saw a group of wild turkeys one morning. A total of 4 adults and 7 children stayed here with PLENTY of room. The downstairs has a bunkbed and lots of mattress stored in the closet. It also had an additional kitchen downstairs, which we did not even need or use. The only downside, IF you can call it that, is that there is no Wi-fi...but we came to the mountains to escape so it was probably a blessing not to have it. Our cell phones worked fine.

Fantastic Spacious Cabin, minor upkeep required

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was very spacious and beautiful. Pool table downstairs was a hit with the kids and the adults. Not too far from Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain. Cabin layout was great, though no closets in the two bedrooms upstairs. Three of the bedrooms had King Beds, a big plus. The downstairs was perfect for kids and gave us some space. Back yard was great. There are a couple of cabins relatively close by. One under construction. Neighbors kept to themselves. Cabin could have been cleaned a bit better and quite a few light bulbs are burned out, luckily the fixtures had multiple bulbs so we didn't have to replace any. I would consider returning. We went with kids and grandparents and everyone really enjoyed the cabin. The most significant drawback was that it is on well water and we exceeded well capacity once during our stay, this required us to refrain from using water for a few hours until well caught up. Overall a good experience.

The property was awesome and the pictures I don't think give it justice! The entire basement area is basically a house of its own while the main floor and upstairs is huge. We had 7 kids and they all stayed downstairs with the pool table. The rap around porch was amazing too. Make sure when you arrive that you pull into the driveway of the house and keep going. The cabin is on the right. We made the mistake of passing it a few times! The lake was great as we all went fishing and played in it. We had no service so make sure you are prepared to drive into town to make a call. There is also no liquor store anywhere near there as it is a dry county. We had to drive to Chattonooga! I will be coming here again!! House has everything you need for cooking. The grill was great but I would recommend foil to wrap on it! Lid is flimsy so you have to kinda make it work but it still cooks great.(Charcoal). Dish was good too!!

Wonderful, relaxing get away.

We rented this property for a family vacation with our adult children. The photos of the property do not do it justice. There were only 6 of us but this home is spacious enough to accommodate many more! Everyone had lots of room and we spend our evenings playing pool in the game room or just hanging out for some quality time on the wrap around deck. The beds are super comfortable our hosts provided all of the linens and towels we needed.

The home is situated in a very private area. We saw deer and wild turkeys every day. The mountain views are also spectacular. It is a bit out of the little town of Trenton and a short drive if you want to go into Chattanooga but it is perfect for those looking for a quiet retreat!

Best of all, Virginia is the kindest and most helpful owner I have ever encountered in years of renting on VRBO. She made everything so easy, responded to every question and request in a timely manner. She was a joy to work with! If you're looking for a great mountain get away, look no further, you have found it!!!
