Love the Buzzards' Roost

  • 5 of 5

This was a cozy, clean and unique cottage that was just perfect for my husband and me (and our two dogs). It has a lovely view, and after all day sight-seeing, the jacuzzi was perfect for relaxation. We used the loft bedroom which was perfect for watching the sunrise without having to get out of bed! Thank you so much for being pet friendly! We wish we could have stayed longer.

Fall Get Away!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to take a quick get away trip on an upcoming three day weekend. I have been talking about my childhood trip to Rock City for our entire ten year marriage... so we decided to take our teens on a relaxing trip to recreate my childhood memories. I looked at a few hotels near Chattanooga and the idea of a cabin crossed my mind. A quick VRBO search led me to Buzzards Roost and the price was actually cheaper than a few of the hotels we were considering, plus we would be able to bring our dog along with us!

What can I say about the cabin other than WOW! Incredibly clean and organized. Every description offered online is 100% accurate. The owners are amazing and easy to contact. It was the perfect amount of living space for two adults, two teens, and a dog. The view is unlike anything the kids had ever seen being from Florida (We were actually lucky to have picked the weekend we did bc we missed out on Hurricane Matthew!). Having all the comforts of home helped save some money bc we were able to make breakfast and a few dinners at the cabin with groceries we brought. *Thanks for the dozen fresh eggs! The washer and dryer came to good use when we needed to wash a load of laundry that we didn't plan to get dirty while exploring the area. There is a little country market a few miles down the road for last minutes needs.

Chattanooga is a quick 30 minute drive for a day of sightseeing - try dinner at Tony's or visit the amazing aquarium! We did visit Rock City and The Battles for Chattanooga (kids love history!). The owner provides a free pass to Cloudland Canyon State Park (just a few minutes down the road) which was incredible! We hiked some of the easier trails and marveled at the views! In the evenings there is a tv/dvd player and lots of games and books to browse. My husband and daughter learned backgammon together while I read The Book of Secrets. You have to wake up early at least once to enjoy the sunrise from the swing.

We loved our trip and cannot wait to return! We have a list of things we didn't get to do and want to return for... like the hot tub on the porch! Please consider this cabin... It turned out to be one of the best trips my family has taken!

At Home on a Mountain Top

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Buzzard's Roost. We knew we would feel totally relaxed and no surprises. The kitchen was filled with basic cooking needs and even had fresh eggs in the frig, an assortment of tomatoes and peppers and fresh flowers on the counter. For two early risers, we were disappointed that we slept past sunrise each morning. We took different routes to Chattanooga each day after reviewing the guide books provided. We loved getting back up the mountain to the peace and quiet. Would love to be there to see the fall leaves and feel a little chill in the air. Thanks for the homey stay and no motel maid service knocking on the door at 9 o'clock.
