About Susan Skaggs
Hospitality is definitely my hobby... Little did I know how much of this hobby I would get to enjoy with VRBO! Our family moved to the Chattanooga in 2013 with the vision to build Gorgeous Mountain Retreat overlooking beautiful Sequatchie Valley in the Blue Ridge mountains of TN. We have loved adding special touches to the cabin, recommending our favorite Chattanooga dives and outdoor gems, and meeting a few of the wonderful families that have stayed at the cabin.
Why Susan Skaggs chose Whitwell
Gorgeous Mountain Retreat was built as a retreat for missionaries and their families in 2014. When missionaries are not staying at the cabin, we make these dates available to friends and families from around the world. A percentage of each stay helps support missionaries on the field through our ministry, More Than A Sparrow Ministries.
What makes this Lodge unique
There is so much to love about this cabin...Indoor/outdoor fireplaces add great ambiance and solstice along with private balconies and wrap around deck. The cabin is surrounded by Prentice Cooper State Forest atop Walden's Ridge. You feel like you can touch the stars. Visitors love to sit outside with a cup of coffee in the crisp morning air and listening to the morning birds and watching the clouds roll through the valley. Our guest love that each spacious bedroom has it's own bathroom. There is plenty of room to spread out in the cabin and great spaces to come together.

House was very comfortable and roomy for nine of us. Beds were wonderful. Owner gave great tips for restaurants and bakeries. Outside fireplace was fun.
We really enjoyed our stay here. We love the large showers and country setting! For positive critique; pads for dining room chairs, a pizza cutter, pot holders, more towels/wash cloths, fix the broken soap door on the dish washer. It was broken when we arrived. Better warn guests there are not any toiletries ie soap, shampoo, toilet paper. Warn guests that there are not enough pots/pans and encourage them to bring paper plates. The den was super comfortable, the house clean. We loved our friendly cat! Overall a great experience. We hope you use our suggestions to make the house and stay even better. Keith.
Our family stayed for a week and had such a great time! Plenty of space for everyone! The kids loved the lower floor! Thank you!
Amazing Mountain Retreat
The house was absolutely amazing. Bedrooms were perfect and allowed everyone their own bathroom, which was so great. The owners were super nice and very helpful with ideas on places to go and things to see. The house was perfectly cool for our entire stay which was during a very hot week in August. We had no problems at all with anything. There were plenty of games in the house to keep all occupied in the evening hours. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.
A wonderful retreat!
Peacefulness just oozes from this little lodge! We loved everything about our stay here!
Beautiful home that accommodated us all
We enjoyed this home very much. My sisters 70th Birthday was fun to have here. It accommodated everyone. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed, there were toys for kids and plenty of towels. Sleeping was comfortable too. We had a great time. Thank you very much.
