This property is about 18 miles from downtown, but sometimes feels further because of the slow, narrow, winding river road. The view is fantastic however, and provides a wonderful way to slow down from hectic daily life!
DOWN ON THE RIVER If you decide to go down to the river, it is a little over 200 steps (wooden, concrete and large field stones) to get there. Once you get there you will find a huge dock, complete with seating all the way around the upper level and a fire pit right next to the river. The hike back up can to house can be considered strenuous with over 200 steps and a 125 foot climb.

Great views, perfect weather, wonderful weekend
This house was perfect for a weekend getaway. While not too far from town, you really felt secluded. From the dock, there were great views of all the scenery. We were there at the peak of the fall leaves and it was gorgeous. The weather was great, and we took a beautiful hike on Signal Mountain which wasn't far away. I would recommend this house to anyone!

We absolutely loved this place! The views were breathtaking and almost surreal! We loved sitting outside just to hear the sounds of nature. Various Birds, crickets, fish jumping in and out of the water, all kinds of animals running jumping and playing it was great. So peaceful and serene. I didnt want to leave. Such a beautiful home, and well appreciated. Super clean. We went to rock city enchanted lights which wasnt that far, we loved the mtn views on the way it was a great experience all the way around. Many great things about this place. Thank you!

Amazing Girls Weekend Getaway
7 girls vacationed here for a short getaway. We loved the layout and the dock! It is a hike down and back, but totally worth it. The drive from the bottom of the mountain to the rental is a solid 30 mins so plan accordingly. The owners were amazing as well!

We had a great extended weekend here!
We had a very good weekend here and really enjoyed our stay at the River Outlook! It was just the two of us with our dog and it was the perfect relaxing weekend getaway,.We greatly enjoyed strolling around the downtown streets and riverfront of Chattanooga during one of our days here, but the other days we just enjoyed the property as well as exploring areas further away from downtown. There's a great winery about 30 minutes west of here that we'd recommend, they do wood fired pizza too! We spent time down at the dock and on the water (we brought our kayaks and fishing gear) everyday as well. As other reviewers have mentioned, the walk back up helped us burn off the calories from all the great meals we made in the well equipped kitchen. This place had more than enough space for us and our dog, in fact we could have brought 4 other people and everyone would have had their own bed! Great property, well equipped, far enough away from city life to completely detach, but close enough to explore it if that's what you're feeling. Highly recommended!

We had a great time here. The majority of the time was spent on the dock fishing with the kids (3 yr old and 6 yr old) and enjoying the scenery. We didn't believe the walk down to the dock would be that bad and boy were we wrong haha. It isn't for the faint of heart. We are in shape but the walk back up to the house was very difficult. That didn't stop us from making the round trip a couple times a day though haha. I am sure we will be revisiting River Overlook when we return to Chattanooga. Thank you for allowing us to stay in this beautiful house.

We had a very lovely time for a quick family getaway. The view is unbeatable and the fishing off the dock was wonderful! The fire pit by the water was a very nice evening treat. We loved the sunporch. The walk to and from the water was steep but doable (can check that off your gym list!). The drive on the last road to the house IS very curvy and bumpy. The last 14 miles took every bit of 40 minutes and that was not being too timid. It was worth it! We stayed in all weekend and relaxed and went to Chattanooga as we left on Sunday for a nice lunch at Puckett's Grocery. Totally recommend downtown Chattanooga for a relaxing stroll along the river.

We had a great time at the River Overlook and the SkyBox Chalet people were great. The road to the house is winding with a few hills :) but at the same time it is a beautiful drive and worth it. The house was very clean and accommodating. The decks were great to sit outside above the Tennessee River.
