May Family

The May House is a massive 6,500 sq. ft. home located in forested land at the foot of Lookout Mountain just one mile from Chattanooga’s popular South-Side. The gorgeous modern craftsman home boasts of a heated pool (late March to late Oct and shared with two homes), a private swim spa, sauna, fire pit (shared), trailheads, four suites, a large kitchen, back deck with a hanging bed, grill, and more. The location is a hop to the mountain or downtown but sits over the river surrounded by forest.

The May home is by far the largest home in Wauhatchie Woodlands and for 12 years as the May family home. This vacation dream home is flanked by national parkland, with a walk to Lookout Creek, a short trail to a great TN river overlook, and just 1 mile from South Broad Street and the popular Southside district of Chattanooga. The home has everything you could want and then some, from its massive size and some HUGE bedrooms that make for great suites, as well as amenities that cannot be matched.

The kitchen is open to dining, a dining bar, a living room with a wood burn fireplace, and directly adjacent to the massive stunning sunroom with vaulted ceilings. You will love the real wood craftsmanship, contrast in stains and colors, and a combination of rustic and contemporary style. The sunroom exits to a spacious back deck with a swinging bed, outdoor dining, and direct access to the private 14′ swim spa.

On the same living level, there is a beautiful bathroom shared by a queen bedroom and the kid’s room with a lofted queen bed and slide. The slide room sleeps two small people up top and has a single bed below. Across the hall is a beautiful queen bedroom larger than many master bedrooms and a stunning newly renovated bathroom. This large queen room has a TV, a small work desk, and seating for TV watching out of bed.

On down the hall, you get into the two massive loft rooms. The river-facing loft room has a front deck, all windows on one side, shower room, toilet room, closet, and downstairs a spacious TV den. Upstairs there are two full/twin bunks that can sleep up to six in one large suite.

Then on the left, on the main level of the back loft room, you will find two lofted full beds over a newly added king bed. Also on this level is a sofa, shower room, toilet room, closet and upstairs there are two workspace desks as well as a TV with a daybed. So, in all, there are 4 beds in this room: two full, one king (after Christmas 2020), and one twin daybed upstairs.

Then downstairs is a massive 23’x25′ master suite with a huge king bed, modern armoires, another wood-burning stove, a 65″ curved TV, and a large sectional sofa. The master also has a large bathroom with two vanities, a walk-in shower, a deep bathing tub, and a nice, small cedar sofa.

Also on the lower living level is the exciting playroom. The pool table will not be felted till very early 2021, however, there is a ping pong top, foosball table, air hockey, and TV and sofa. Down here is a small fridge and freezer for drinks or creamer for coffee in the morning taken by the master bedroom.

****Please be aware that we are not an event space and the pool/firepit area is a shared space to be enjoyed but not equipped or available for private party use.

Things To Note

Even though you will think you are staying in the national park when you are in the house, you are right upon the city and I-24 separates the property from the TN river so there is some urban transit noise outside.

“A wonderful retreat! Loved the cabin we were in. Beds were comfortable as were the seats in the living room. I like the soft scent of the wood. I’d recommend it totally.”

Susan Berg Close

“Our cabin was very clean and comfortable. The location is perfect; close to Lookout Mountain attractions, yet a very private cabin in the woods. The hot tub was enjoyable at the end of a busy day.”

Esther McEachern

“Beautiful little log cabins! So perfect with everything you need for a getaway! So close to down town Chattanooga and other sights!! A definite 5/5!”
