Pot Point Cabin

Pot Point Cabin

Location: Chattanooga Type: Cabin
3 Beds 2.5 Baths Sleeps 10 Pets Not Allowed
Located on over 400 acres of protected natural lands on the banks of the Tennessee River, the Pot Point Cabin was originally built in 1835. The cabin was constructed from hand-hewn logs and planks reclaimed from flat boats wrecked on the “Boiling Pot” rapid on the Tennessee River.

In 1993, renovations were made to the original cabin that included a great room with floor to ceiling windows that provide a scenic view of the Tennessee river, an upstairs bathroom with shower, a downstairs wheelchair accessible bathroom, and a small but serviceable kitchen. There are two decks overlooking the river.

Across the road up, the driveway and to the left, this cabin even has its own Self-Guided Nature Trail. It is a moderately strenuous, 3.5 mile loop trail featuring some steep climbs and reaching over 1,000 feet in altitude around Azalea Point. Along with the recreational experience, hikers will be able to enjoy the rich biodiversity that is found in the Tennessee River Gorge.

• The water at Pot Point is well water and is considered non-potable (Not drinkable).
We do however provide a 5 gallon cooler of potable (drinkable) water for our guests and we also recommend that you bring additional drinking water dependant on the size of your group. This property is on a well and sometimes with the overuse of water, the well pump may not keep up and may take several hours to refill the tank. Please use water sparingly.

• This property is about 12 miles from downtown, but sometimes feels further because of the slow, narrow, winding river road. You will lose your internet and phone signal on the way to the house- Please print the driving instructions and the lock code prior to arriving to the house. The view is fantastic however, and provides a wonderful way to slow down from hectic daily life!

• Log cabins have the tendency to leak when it rains very hard.  Every effort is made to avoid this but we have thus far been unable to avoid it.
