Description of the Chattanooga vacation other rental
The Lodge of McClemore's Cove is a custom built 6,000 square foot log home that has many unique features that will make your stay memorable. The 28 ft. cathedral ceilings and the massive 10 foot front doors are a glimpse into what is in store for our guests. Gorgeous mountain views in all directions and unheard of privacy make this a place that seems to have been untouched by time. The Lodge sits atop a ridge with Lookout Mountain 2 miles to the west and Pigeon Mountain 2 miles to the east and the end of the McClemore's Cove 5 miles to the south. The early risers can watch the sun peek over Pigeon Mountain and everyone can watch the beautiful sunsets over Lookout Mountain. And the best is yet to come as once the sun sets the spectacular night sky puts on a show that is breathtaking. If you love nature's beauty then you will be at home here and if you enjoy real log homes this is the place for you. If you want the big city and parking lots then you may have a change of heart after your visit. Whatever your preferences we will welcome you to a beautiful log home that is in a gorgeous setting.

The capacity for the lodge is 24 and we have just added an auxillary house that is available for larger groups that have up to 32 people.The auxillary house is 1500 sq. ft. and has 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and is just down the hill from the lodge. There is an additional charge for the auxillary house. If you are interested please ask for more information.

The average group size in the Lodge is 22 people and there is plenty of room for everyone. The 2 adjacent great rooms provide lots of options for tv watching, gaming, conversation, or just relaxing by the fireplace. The 2,200 sq. ft of open area on the ground floor is perfect for connecting with family and friends.

The 2 kitchens provide lots of options for the cooks and chefs as well. The larger kitchen has a gas oven, convection oven, and convection microwave oven as well as 2 full sinks,dishwasher,XL fridge, and lots of countertops for preparation. The smaller kitchen has an electric stove, XL fridge, dishwasher, full sink, washer/dryer, and more countertop areas. There are 2 full-size dining room tables and seating at the bar in the larger kitchen/dining area as well.

There are 3 bedrooms on the main floor and 1 full bath and a 1/2 bath as well. These rooms all have queen beds in them and give our guests who don't want to climb stairs the option of not having to while still being able to access the great rooms.

Upstairs there are 2 huge master bedrooms that each have king beds, sitting areas, bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs, and walkout balcony decks with gorgeous views. There is also the bunk room with 2 sets of bunk beds and also a loft area with a very comfy futon and Thomas the Tank Engine track set for the younger train enthusiasts. At the top is the tower bedroom which has incredible views in all directions and has a full bed in it.
Area Information
The lodge has over 2,500 sq. ft. of decks and porches so no matter what time of day it is you can find some shade or sun to relax in a rocker or chair. The covered front porch is great if it's raining to listen to the rain on the metal roof or to watch the sun set over Lookout Mountain. The back screened in porch is awesome to enjoy birdwatching or listening to the sounds of nature. The enclosed porch has the foosball table and sauna and outdoor game equipment and the 3 balcony decks are great for a morning cup of coffee to start your day. The large side deck has incredible views year round as you can see to the end of the cove.

The back patio has the hot tub and leads to the 36 ft inground pool that is exclusively for your use. The pool is the place to be for all ages either wearing out the young ones or relaxing for the older ones. Also in the back is the fire pit and outdoor fireplace which provide endless hours of memories while relaxing and roasting marshmallows.

There is 3 acres of front yard space for kids to roam and play games as well as the woods to explore. Take a mile hike on the property that goes through the woods and across the lower pasture to Chickamauga Creek which is on the property. The creek is 30 feet wide and usually is only a few feet deep. The kids love to play in the creek and look for animals and their footprints. Also, searching for arrowheads is a popular endeavor around the creek as well.

Anytime of year is a great time to visit The Lodge of McClemore's Cove as this area is beautiful year round and there are abundant activities to enjoy.

The Perfect Getaway with Friends and Family

June 22, 2016

My son got married near Chattanooga and all our relatives and friends who traveled to the wedding were able to stay with us in this big beautiful lodge! My son and his groomsmen stayed in the extra cabin on the property. It couldn't have been more perfect! We stopped at Walmart on the way in (8 miles away) and bought groceries. The first night we all sat by the pool as the sun went down the fireflies started appearing - that was magical! We had wonderful long breakfasts on the big deck in the refreshing morning air. During the day some of us went to Chattanooga to see the sights while others toured the site of the Civil War Battle of Chattanooga outside of Chickamauga at the National Military Park just down the road. There were several that went to Ruby Falls, an amazing cave and waterfall park. So many wonderful places to visit are nearby. We all slept comfortably in the many bedrooms. Large meals were easy to prepare with two kitchens and a large dining room plus the beautiful deck. Getting ready for the wedding ceremony was a breeze with the ironing board and plenty of closet space to hang our formal wear. We are all ready to do this all over again! Our 3 nights at the Lodge went by way too fast. We have wonderful memories, beautiful photographs and we are all so much closer to each other no matter how far apart we live because our hearts are tied together by our time here at The Lodge of McClemore's Cove.
