Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cabin / bungalow. Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms. Cats, Dogs allowed.

12532 Mullins Cove Road Whitwell, TN 37397 United States

This vacation rental and unique property is perched 125 feet above the Tennessee River in the famous Tennessee River Gorge. It has two decks (upper and lower) as well as a sun room facing the beautiful view of the river as well fabulous views of mountains in all directions rising up to 1200 feet.

To the east, directly across the river, is Raccoon mountain and to the north you can see the famous rock climbing wall called the “T” wall (35.069038, -85.398932). The upper deck has a table and chairs for your morning coffee as well as a charcoal grill. The sunroom has carpeting and comfortable wicker seating with pads. The Lower deck has two swinging wicker love seats with pads, a hammock and ceiling fans.

This vacation rental home is a 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bath fully furnished home. The master bedroom on the main level hosts two twin bed connected with a twin bed bridge, actually making it a king sized bed. The sunroom and the master bath are also attached to the master bedroom. The main level also has the full kitchen and dining area, a half bath, and a comfortable seating area with sliding glass doors leading to the view and the upper deck.

On the lower level of this house you will find the other two bedrooms which have a bunk bed in each room with a twin bed on the top bunk and a full bed on the bottom bunk. The lower level also has a full bath, a laundry room and a comfortable seating area along with with a gas fireplace and a large flat screen TV, but no cable. It also has sliding glass doors leading to the view and onto the lower deck.

Maximum occupancy at all times is 6 people.

There is NO internet and the TV's are for video, dvds only, no channels.

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.

Plan to unplug here as internet is not available.

The Chattanooga, TN-GA Metropolitan Area, is an area consisting of six counties – three in southeast Tennessee (Hamilton, Marion, and Sequatchie) and three in northwest Georgia (Catoosa, Dade, and Walker) – anchored by the city of Chattanooga.

Note: Most of our properties are rural and wooded. Please do not expect a perfectly manicured lawn. We cut a little here and there when we see fit to do so.

    It was a great place to rest. A long drive from anything you might want to do. It would be amazing if you had access to a boat to explore the river.

    • Manager Responded on 8/30/2017

      Thank you for coming to stay at River Overlook. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. It is one of the prettiest locations that we have. It is a long drive to the house from town but it is well worth it. The distance and the drive time are clearly explained in the description There are marinas that rent boats in our area. That could be an option for you the next time you are in Chattanooga. We hope that you will come back and visit again soon!

    Can't say enough about this beautiful place. Everything was perfect. Getting to the house isn't easy - but once you're there it's worth it!!

    • Manager Responded on 8/23/2017

      Thank you for staying at River OverLook. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. They always say that the road less traveled leads to the most amazing view! The house is in one of the prettiest locations on the TN River and The house is very much worth the drive! Yes it is a lengthy drive- down a narrow- some times one lane road, it is quite curvy with low visibility in spots, the road is not meant to be driven quickly, take into consideration the level of gas in the tank(No gas stations along Suck Creek Road) and occasionally you may have to move a random donkey or goat out of the way. It is all part of the experience in the area as we said in the driving instructions that we provided. Its well worth the Drive! We do hope that you will come back and stay with us again soon

    Kimberly S from Cumming, GA recommends this vacation rental

    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!

    • Manager Responded on 8/7/2017

      Thank you for staying with us at River Overlook We are glad that you enjoyed your stay along the River. Yes, you do get the "Step-master' workout when you go down to the River from the house but the view is amazing. We hope that you come back and stay with us again either at River Overlook or one of our other wonderful locations! Have a Great Day!

    a guest from Frostproof, FL recommends this vacation rental

    The home is beautiful and very clean! View is amazing! The route getting back to the house is a bit weary- but once driven a few times you become a pro! While there, we enjoyed the views at Lookout Mountain/ Ruby Falls and loved visiting the Aquarium! Most nights we cooked in, however we enjoyed the delicious food at Mojo Burrito (near Lookout Mountain) and the Smoke House on Mont Eagle Mountain. Would recommend to someone who is looking for somewhere to have a staycation away from home!

    • Manager Responded on 8/8/2017

      Thank you for staying at River Overlook. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay. The house is definitely one of the prettiest location wise and you never know what you will see on the "adventurous" drive to the house. There are several restaurants close to the house that are fantastic but it all depends on what you want to eat and we will be happy to recommend some other places the next time you come. We hope that you come back and stay with us again soon either at River Overlook or one of our other wonderful properties in the area.

    a guest from Cincinnati, OH recommends this vacation rental

    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!

    • Manager Responded on 7/10/2017

      Thank you so much for your kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. That wood fired real Italian pizza is one of our favorites as well! Thanks again for taking great care of the property during your visit. Please do come back soon.

    This is a lovely cabin sitting above the Tennessee River. The view is beautiful. It's a great place to get away and enjoy some solitude. This was also one of the cleanest rentals we have ever stayed in. Be aware that the road getting to the cabin is a bit precarious but otherwise everything about our stay was wonderful.

    a guest from Covington, LA recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    • Manager Responded on 5/24/2017

      Thanks ! we are so glad y'all enjoyed it. The up and down to the dock is a strenuous workout as noted in the description of the property.

    Came to the River Overlook with my wife for some much needed alone time. We definitely got it at the River Overlook! Nicely furnished, very clean. The road this property is on is very narrow and winding with a slow, looooooong drive. Be sure to pick up food on your way into town.

    • Manager Responded on 4/27/2017

      Thanks for getting away to River Overlook. Being directly on the river means only one road in and out - and narrow and winding for sure! We are glad you enjoyed your stay.

    Helen T from Memphis, TN recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    Home is nestled right off the river. The dock was great for fishing but quite a hike up and down. A nice surprise to find a playground for the kids and we used the outside decks extensively.
