Overview

About the property

Three bedroom, three bath home in the mountains, surrounded by nature and views

Comfortable and contemporary cabin on 7 acres is located in the mountains of the Cumberland Plateau. Home is located near several Civil War historical sites and situated between three of the most beautiful state parks in East Tennessee: Fall Creek Falls State Park, Savage Gulf Natural Area and Rock Island State Park. House is 15 minutes from downtown Dunlap, 45 minutes from Chattanooga and the airport, 25 minutes from Soddy Daisy and 2 hours from Nashville.

Bring yourself or your family for a relaxing vacation you won't forget. The cabin is surrounded by nature but easy to get to with an expertly maintained gravel road .8 mile directly to the house with new paved streets and four lane highways at the end of the gravel road. Wake in the morning and sip coffee on the deck while quietly watching the deer, turkey and fox walk through the property all while enjoying the cool fresh mountain air, beautiful sunrise over the mountain and the sweet sounds of nature. Or, enjoy the steam sauna before or after your morning run or hike.

Bring your fishing poles if you like, as there is a gorgeous two hundred acre lake at Fall Creek Falls State Park 12 miles away where visitors can enjoy spending the day hiking in the mountains, fishing, canoeing or Kayaking.

Perfect quiet family getaway located in the Cumberland Plateau. In the heart of nature and close to several fantastic parks and historical civil war sites.

House is new, very comfortable and fully equipped with everything you need for your stay from high speed internet, linens, towels, hair dryer, dishes, full cook wear and an outdoor state park style wood or charcoal burning grill for delicious BBQs.

large six person outdoor table with sun umbrella and chairs, four log rocking chairs and four super comfy, 'zero gravity' reclining chairs to relax in on the lawn. Close to major shopping and restaurants in Dunlap, Sparta, Soddy Daisy and Chattanooga.

Fine dining, night clubs, sea aquarium, museum and attractions offered in downtown Chattanooga, only 45 minutes away.

Property is located only 12 miles to Fall Creek Falls State Park and Savage Gulf Natural Area and 30 minutes from Rock Island State park, where visitors can enjoy many outdoor activities like: rock climbing, cycling, swimming, hiking, world class golfing, horseback riding, kayaking, boating, tennis, fishing, hunting, horseshoes, mountain biking, hang gliding, antiquing, sight seeing, wildlife viewing and much more.

There is so much to do and see, one trip will not be enough. Also check out other interesting places in the near like Cumberland Caverns, Rock City, Ruby Falls, Shiloh Civil War Battlefield or Look out Mountain in Chattanooga, just to name a few.

Make plans now, to visit during the summer season as the home fills up fast. The scenery and wildlife here is fascinating and romantic, especially up here in the mountains.

A wheel chair ramp is provided upon request for guests who require assistance.

For guests arriving by plane, rental cars are offered at the Chattanooga airport (CHA) and just outside the airport with a free shuttle provided to pick you up and take you back.

About Terri Ramsey

We are two sisters with a great love of nature and spending time together with family and friends. This is our way to accomplish both goals and hope you will enjoy the serenity we have.

Terri Ramsey purchased this house in 2010

Why Terri Ramsey chose Dunlap

This is not just a rental but our personal cabin which we have opened for others to enjoy. The original owner lovingly designed and built the home as his retirement destination before love took him to Hungary to be with his wife. You will feel all of the special touches that make this a special place. My sister and I purchased it because of our love of the outdoors, the peace and calm that nature provides, and being able to share time with family and friends.. The home is located a short distance between three of the most beautiful state parks you will find in East Tennessee. The house has everything you will need for a memorable stay that will surely bring you and your family back a second time.

What makes this house unique

Travelers will enjoy a unique quality vacation with their loved ones or a romantic getaway with each other. The cabin is luxurious, comfortable well equipped with everything you will need and well suited for those who are seeking adventure as well as peaceful mountain surrounds that inspire awe. Wildlife is abundant in the area and is best viewed while either sipping coffee on the front porch in the morning or while driving through one of the lovely state parks nearby with your family.

Absolutely perfect!! Beautiful place in a beautiful area!

  • 5 of 5

The most relaxing vacation in years. It snowed twice and the cabin was the perfect place to snuggle up and enjoy it. It has everything a person could need. Very clean, very quiet and very comfortable. This is our second time staying here and it gets better each time. We are building a cabin nearby and will be enjoying this stunning area for the rest of our days! Thanks, Terri for letting us share your place

Peaceful nature filled haven

  • 5 of 5

Upon arriving and following the long private gravel driveway to the cottage we were already feeling the peace and privacy ahead of us. The home is very clean and spacious and felt very comfortable to be in. We enjoyed the gorgeous trees and nature surrounding the property and spent evenings by the fire pit star gazing and watching fireflies. We were very close to different hiking areas that we enjoyed daily as well as only a short drive to groceries and supplies for our stay. We were mentally planning our next trip back from the moment we arrived, we loved this place so much! Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home, it was a complete pleasure!

Love, Love, Love !

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect getaway. The location is fabulous. A little remote but only 15 minutes into town. Close to Falls Creek Falls State Park which is amazing! The house is well appointed with everything you need. Very spacious and decorated adorably. Our host reached out to us to see if everything was satisfactory and it was just perfect. Thank you Terry for sharing your home with us.
