Treehouse in Rising Fawn
The Sassafras Treehouse
The Sassafras Treehouse on Lookout Mountain is a brand new luxury treehouse with panoramic views and a spectacular sunrise. The treehouse features an a fully functional kitchen, (mini fridge, induction cooktop, and convection microwave) a traditional queen bed, a full bathroom, oversized soaking bathtub, outdoor shower, hot tub, firepit, bed swing, and several additional amenities listed below. This home is suited for 2 guests. This is a place to relax, unwind and unplug, therefore there is no television at this location. The Sassafras Treehouse is situated on 18 acres with many natural elements such as boulders, some of which were used in the construction and pathways of the treehouse, mountain laurel and sassafras on the grounds. Occasionally you may even spot deer. There are yurts nearby, not managed by us but we are happy to give you the info if you have additional people you are traveling with who want to stay nearby. The treehouse is constructed of many repurposed materials. The heart pine floors, lathing strips for ceiling construction, and reclaimed lumber used for ladder to the loft bedroom and chevron barn door was all from a furniture store that was over 100 years old. The beautiful dutch door was taken from an estate in Asheville, North Carolina. As you can see, a lot of love went into this one of a kind treehouse and we hope it brings our guests joy and peacefulness. Just like any other treehouse, this treehouse can slightly sway in high winds. This treehouse was built from a treehouse plan and has additional bracing. This rental is not suitable for pets or children under the age of 12. Minimum age to check-in is 21. The Sassafras Treehouse does not permit indoor smoking, parties, or events. 2 vehicles are permitted on the property and all guests staying overnight must be listed when booking. The treehouse is located 20 miles from downtown Chattanooga, 16 miles to Rock City, 3 miles to Cloudland Canyon, and is central to many other attractions. I am available by message and also live in the area if assistance is needed. **The outdoor shower will be winterized if temperatures drop below freezing.

Your guide to Chattanooga

Introduction

The city of Chattanooga sits on the bucolic banks of the Tennessee River, backed by the foothills of the Appalachian Mountain Range and Lookout Mountain. This is a city that is as much about nature as it is about urban life, with museums, science centers, cultural programming, and a forward-looking tech-friendly streak. The terrain in and around Chattanooga is loaded with fairytale scenery, babbling brooks, and cascading waterfalls. Add a dose of Southern charm, and the city is a major draw for vacationing families, groups of friends, and even business travelers here for a work-play stay. Chattanooga’s neighborhoods are a patchwork of green parks and classic Victorian and Tudor homes; it’s no wonder that it’s nicknamed the Scenic City.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Chattanooga?

Fall is the most beautiful time of year to stay in one of Chattanooga’s cabins, when the foliage bursts into bright shades of crimson and orange and the temperature is pleasant for outdoor activities. In September, the average highs reach 82 degrees Fahrenheit, with a low of 56. Come November, the highs hover around a balmy 62 degrees, and by December the visitors empty out as the colder weather blows in. If you’re looking for a scene, summers are popular but hot, sometimes unbearably so. July and August are the hottest months, with an average high of 88 degrees, though temperatures often soar higher than that. A high UV Index of 10 in summer means you should double up on sunscreen and bring protective sunglasses.


What are the top things to do in Chattanooga?

Tennessee River Gorge

The Tennessee River Gorge is a breathtaking 26-mile canyon carved into the Cumberland Plateau by the Tennessee River. There are plenty of ways to experience this natural wonder, from renting a boat or raft to swimming or fishing. But the local favorite remains hiking the trails of Tennessee River Gorge that meander through meadows and forests to overlooks.

Tennessee Aquarium

Explore another world at the renowned Tennessee Aquarium. Stingrays, sharks, crocodiles, fish, and other underwater creatures fill the colorful tanks. It’s not only fish and amphibians that live here, but butterflies, birds, and invertebrates. Educational opportunities abound through informational sessions and programming at the IMAX theater.

Lookout Mountain

One of the gems of Chattanooga is the 2,400-foot Lookout Mountain, a captivating ridgeline a few miles from town. Choose from among three individually ticketed points of interest that provide ample opportunities for a full day on the mountain: Incline Railway, one of the steepest funicular railways in the world, in operation since 1895; Ruby Falls, the county’s tallest public underground waterfall; and Rock City, a hiking exhibit of surreal rock formations, native plants, and views of seven states.
