Private Hot Tub
Shared Fire Pit
Our Skyuka Chalet looks over the Tennessee river and is surrounded by national forests.
Located just 1 mile from Ruby Falls and 5 miles from downtown Chattanooga this location offers the best of both the city and nature.
****Please be aware that we are not an event space and the pool/firepit area is shared space to be enjoyed but not equipped or available for private party use. NO PARTIES ALLOWED
The space is inspiring – a great fusion of imagination, modernity, and a woodsy rustic feel that organically compliments the area (surrounded by US National Forest). You will enter from the back using a private drive. Your private hot tub is on the lower back deck before you ascend to the main living area above the workout area. The master bedroom is private with direct access to the bathroom and the living space is open, with high, vaulted wood ceilings and dynamic lighting for any mood.
The kitchen is full service, though a roughly two butt kitchen opening to the common space and dining area. There is a unique loft service by spiral stairs that has bunks, fans, closet, reading sconces and a striking surround of high windows and a crown vaulted ceiling. Please be advised that the loft is considered the second bedroom as airbnb does not allow us to label it a “loft” bedroom so it is an open space and not private. The double bed in the “cubby nook” has very low ceiling and is more of a fun hide out with TV more so than a sleeping space, but can be a fun place for a child to sleep.
The main level deck wraps around the entire home, offering seating in front, views over the pool and river, and a large back deck with dining for six and deep seating to retire too when weather permits.
Guests have access to a shared washer and dryer on the ground level, as well as a common workout room, poolside showers and toilets and free access to the heating and stunning pool and poolside living area complete with a large gas fireplace and wood-burn surround firepit. These amenities are shared by two other homes. This is not only a stunning gem of a home, but a true forested resort just a tiny hop from downtown Chattanooga.

Other Things To Note
The Pool is closed in November each year and opened mid-march. We begin heating the water at the beginning of April as nights in March tend to be too cool for the electric heat system to work effectively. The space is usable as is the fire-pit year round however.
You are provided a charcoal grill for private use on the back deck. Use of the gas grill under the pergola should be cleared beforehand and we cannot guarantee that the gas tank is full at all times and use may require purchase of a tank refill or “recharged” tank, and because this is not included complimentary in the use of the space, guests may be responsible for the cost of a fill or recharge, typically 15-18 dollars.
While this home is tucked into the woods and literally surrounded by national forest and the TN river, the freeway runs close by and there is a CSX and Norfolk Southern rail line that pass near the property. Consequently, this would best be described as a wooded, urban retreat. For very light sleepers, the trains can be a hindrance, but most of our guests hardly notice the trains unless they are dining outside or swimming poolside as one passes.
“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.”
“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.”
“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!”
