Chattanooga Vacation Rentals
Chattanooga Vacation Rentals offers a variety of cabins + vacation rentals in the Chattanooga area. The historic Pot Point Cabin on the Tennessee River sleeps up to 10. For something a little smaller, Plum Nelly Cabin boasts a hot tub and is only two miles from Cloudland Canyon State Park's hiking trails, scenic overlooks, and waterfalls.
Cottages in the Clouds
The Cottages in the Clouds are located high atop Lookout Mountain and feature log-sided houses surrounded by eight wooded acres. You can enjoy a fire pit, gazebo, and grassy lawn for football or frisbee on the property, and each cottage has its own porch (some even have hot tubs). Owner Stan Gravitt is a general contractor and personally built each home in 2005, so expect cozy yet modern amenities, like gas fireplaces and WiFi.
Welcome Valley Village
Welcome Valley Village offers cabins, wagons, and more tucked into beautiful woods located along the Ocoee River near Benton, TN (45 minutes from downtown). Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, it’s just two miles from the Cherokee National Forest, offering whitewater rafting, fishing, hiking, tubing, horseback riding, mountain biking and more. Of course, the cozy cabins beckon you to stay indoors with stacked stone fireplaces, wooden walls and exposed beams, and Jacuzzi tubs in most. An onsite pavilion offers a large grill, picnic tables, wrap-around porch, and riverside dock for fishing or water access.
Scenic View Log Cabins
If it’s rustic charm you’re after, Scenic View Log Cabins has it in spades. Each of the 12 Chattanooga cabins – which range from one-bedroom to two-bedroom – were built onsite by the owner, using logs and stones from the property. Located off Burkhalter Gap Road, about halfway down Lookout Mountain, Scenic View cabins live up to their name with vistas of the valley and Sand Mountain in the distance. It’s about a 10-minute drive from Canyon Grill Restaurant – a hidden gem tucked on the back of Lookout – and 15 minutes from Lookout Mountain attractions. Downtown is about 30 minutes away. Linens and towels are provided and some cabins offer whirlpool tubs and kitchens. NOTE: Google maps has the wrong location, so be sure to confirm directions.
Although this Treetop Hideaway isn't technically a cabin, the rustic retreat is the perfect place to stay if you need a little peace and quiet. This chic abode is climate controlled and comes complete with a bathroom and stocked kitchenette, which is perfect for those who prefer to "glamp." Enjoy s'mores by the fire as you overlook the misty valley and the nearby creek from the treetops.
Wander Chatt's rentals technically aren't cabins either, but the shipping container and treehouse rentals definitely offer up those cozy cabin vibes. Perched on the side of Lookout Mountain, these are views worth waking up to.
If you're looking for a romantic getaway or a family mini vacation, Candelight Forest has got you covered. The 250 acres boast activities for the family and natural amenities to make your stay something special! The property is located just under 20 minutes away from downtown Chattanooga and is on the outskirts of Cloudland Canyon State Park.
