Buzzard's Roost is a wonderful, whimsical, cozy cottage perched right on the edge of Lookout Mountain. Around here, they call it 'the Bluff'. We are on a winding, mellow, dead end road with little or no traffic, making it perfect for walks. Buzzard's Roost is a special place for you to let your hair down, relax & rejuvenate your Soul.

The hot tub is perfect to erase stress & to melt away your aches & pains. Buzzard's has 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms & can sleep 6. 4 in beds, 2 on Sofa Bed. 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, convection oven & toaster, 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 dining area seats 6 & is also perfect for a game of cards or puzzles or board games that are all here.

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 walking 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 hope you enjoy our Mountain Retreat & take advantage of all the wonders of this Mountain Paradise. 35 minutes away, are many Cultural, Recreational, Gourmet Dining & Shopping opportunities. We are 15 min. or less, from the 2nd largest Canyon in the US, Cloudland Canyon. The Hiking is amazing & there are several waterfalls there for you to enjoy. Ft. DeSoto State Park, in Alabama, is about a 45 min. drive. That Park has many Hiking trails, camping, & even an Olympic sized swimming pool.

After a scenic 35 minute drive away, in Tennessee, you can enjoy all that Chattanooga has to offer. You can see Rock City, Ruby Falls, The Tennessee Aquarium & The Inclined Railway & Chattanooga Choo Choo, & many more venues for some extra thrills.

Of course, if pure & Simple Relaxation is what you are after, Buzzard's Roost is the place to be without any traveling at all. Soak up the Peaceful atmosphere & wind down from the hustle bustle of daily life. Take a walk, read a book or magazine, watch a movie, take a nap, cook a meal, listen to the wind in the trees & the birdies singing. We also have a wonderful Swing & Hammock to Relax & enjoy!

Guestbook comments from the owner

PLEASE, realize that we have over 75 Glowing POSITIVE Reviews ! These Guests were young Adults (26 yrs old) that need some proper training as to Values, Morals & Respect for others.

They disregarded our Rental Policies, & tried to bully & threaten me into returning their Damage Deposits after their Dogs soiled my brand new carpet that I had to have Professionally Cleaned & left me to clean Blood, yes Blood, off the walls, floors, & appliances! with a threat to leave Bad Reviews. They also left late, after the agreed upon Check Out Time.

They did leave a Bad Review, to lash out at me, that only shows their immaturity & lack of Social Skills & good upbringing.

I pray they will find someone to take them under their wing & to help them turn their lives around before it's too late. Everyone can dig deep & turn around.

I still have the Faith that there is Good in ALL persons & look forward to continue to open my Home to responsible Guests that know how to Respect the property of others.

We are devastated about the bad Review & hope you will understand how False & Disrespectful it was, & will take into consideration the 77 POSITIVE Reviews left by our other Guests. Please don't let the one "Bad Apple" taint the whole Batch, so to speak & block this one from your decision making process when choosing a place to stay on Lookout Mtn.

I assure you that you will be thrilled with your decision to choose or cozy Cottage on the Bluff.

Scenic view, comfortable cabin, peacful environment

  • 5 of 5

This property was clean, well maintained, adequately stocked with towels and kitchen supplies. It is in a remote, peaceful, location on top of lookout mountain with a wonderful view of the valley below. The pass to Cloudland state park was great. We walked most o the trails and it is very scenic. It's not too far from Chattanooga, TN. We also visited Little River Canyon and Desoto Falls near Mentone, AL. Visit the Wildflower Cafe in Mentone for a great meal and experience.

We had a wonderful time and it's only about a 5 hour drive from our home. We'll be back.

Lovely relaxing vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Spent 2 nights here with the husband and baby. We had a great time. The cabin has an amazing view, relaxing hot tub, and comfortable interior. Super clean, fully equipped kitchen, and washer and dryer. Easy check in/checkout process. The town of Trenton is 10 minutes away, with a few good restaurants and grocery stores. Cloudland Canyon State Park is just a few minutes from the cabin. Would definitely stay again!
