Skyuka Chalet - Base of Lookout Mountain, Poolside, City close, wooded retreat

Chattanooga chalet in Lookout Valley Neighborhood Association, near Ruby Falls
Skyuka Chalet looks over the river, is surrounded by national forests with a couple of neighbors - pool, firepit, outdoor fireplace, private hot tub, heaps of outdoor dining as well as a pool house with workout room.
Just 1 mile to South Broad at the foot of Lookout Mountain.1 mile from Ruby Falls,4 miles from the TN Aquarium.
****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.

The space

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. The 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.
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 woodburn surround firepit. These amenities are shared by three 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.
One important thing to note - 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 secluded, 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.

Interaction with guests

We live next door, so you are likely to run into us. We are perfectly accessible and responsive though not intrusive at all. You may very well spend time poolside with our family or guests in the other house on the grounds, and we do enjoy getting to know our guests in this comfortable and fun context. The pool is shared by all three homes on the five acres.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this chalet offer coffee/tea makers and hair dryers. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, microwaves, and cookware/dishes/utensils. Bathrooms include shower/tub combinations.
An outdoor pool and a spa tub are on site. Other recreational amenities include a fitness center.

3/5 Okay

Enjoyable place, but overpriced.
This is a nice property that’s close to several points of interest, but there are definitely a few drawbacks. There are two rail lines not 100 yards from the cabin; passing trains might not wake you, but you won’t be able to ignore the sound while you’re awake. You’ll also have neighbors, and the community gym/wash-room is literally the room underneath where you’ll be sleeping, so you may have less privacy than you would hope for. Honestly, it’s a nice place but for the cost of almost a month’s rent, I can’t say I would visit again. Solid 3/5 stay; the price is my biggest complaint.

4/5 Good

Great stay overall!
Charming little chalet with beautiful, modern yet rustic touches. Our only complaints are that the loft area room was way too hot (even with a fan) for our kids to sleep there, so they ended up on the couch bed. Unfortunately the couch had not been cleaned out, nor underneath since at least the last stay. Also, it was super disappointing that the outdoor fireplace and grill were out of gas so we couldn’t make use of them. I’d like to go back and be able to make full use of the amenities.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful House

3/5 Okay
