Darling Country Dwelling

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental cabin / bungalow. Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom. Cats, Dogs allowed.

22924 US Highway 41 Chattanooga, TN 37419 United States

Large Country Front porch with a swing bench, comfortable porch furniture and a great view of Racoon Mountain ! This country home is just west of downtown Chattanooga about nine miles to the Tennessee Aquarium, less than six miles to Ruby Falls, and just under 10 miles to Rock City.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of country living. Scenic woods await at Darling Country Dwelling, our rural retreat tucked below the trails of Raccoon Mountain, across from the Tennessee River and just 9 miles from downtown Chattanooga.

Living spaces feel familiar, as if returning home. Breathe in mountain air on the porch swing, and plan a picnic in your own backyard with a fire pit, a charcoal grill, and a picnic table. Maximum occupancy at all times is 6 people.

Fish, paddle, and boat your way into a memorable vacation on the water. Ride the Southeast’s best mountain biking trails, or slow things down with miles of wildlife-filled hikes.

Conveniently 2 miles off the interstate, you can avoid all signs of the city if you choose. Stock the complete kitchen and hunker down around the fireplace. If you begin to crave culture and cuisine, Chattanooga - named the “Best Town Ever” by Outdoor Magazine - is easily accessible.


Inviting living space with a plush sectional, flat-screen TV with DVD player, and high speed internet to make movie night a breeze

Gas fireplace adds extra comfort to a chilly mountain evening

Fully appointed kitchen topped off with mountain views, all set to fuel your crew with a fridge, stove/oven, coffee maker, microwave, and dishwasher for easy clean up

Dining area for four to host a family-style meal, plus a breakfast bar where two can chat

Two queen-size bedrooms with quaint hardwood floors and spacious dressers to unpack

Third bedroom for two with twin-size beds separated by an ever-essential reading lamp

Full bath with shower/tub and plenty of vanity and storage space to go around

Large yard to store outdoor equipment, park, and walk the dogs. The neighbors dogs may also come over to say hi.

Front porch swinging bench, bound to be your favorite place for a night-cap


Merely cross the street to begin your outdoor adventure. Wind about the woods of Raccoon Mountain on 23 miles of hiking trail and when you reach the top, tour the Tennessee Valley Authority power station.

Leave solid land behind and go for a Tennessee River cruise. Start at the public boat launch to motor or paddle upstream, then float back home in your kayak or canoe. Don’t forget fishing supplies for a relaxing afternoon on the water.

Satisfy your sense of adventure with the best mountain biking trails of the Southeast, a stone’s throw from your front door.

If you tire of scenic overlooks and elevation, head underground to explore Ruby Falls, a 145-foot waterfall less than six miles away.

And if you long for a cold beer or a hot new restaurant, downtown Chattanooga has plenty of treasures to uncover just 9 miles from our front door. Don’t be shy - ask us for tips on where the locals eat, sip, and shop. We’ll point you to our favorite hole-in-the-wall coffee shops, and boutiques on the NorthShore. If the weather’s not on your side, spend a day indoors at the aquarium and 3D IMAX theater.

No matter the day's adventure, recharge in a Darling Country Dwelling that feels like home.

    a guest from St. Petersburg, FL recommends this vacation rental

    The Darling Country Dwelling was a perfect fit for our family vacation. We loved relaxing in the evenings on the spacious front porch. The house was very well kept and we found everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Having a washer and dryer was a great bonus. The Wi-Fi and cable worked perfectly when we needed it. We had a little trouble with the front door lock, but the staff was super helpful and proactive.
    The property location is also great. I was concerned at first about the location on US 41, but we never heard the traffic. It was great to be just minutes by car from both the city and Lookout Mountain.
    Thanks for a great experience!

    • Manager Responded on 8/11/2017

      Thank you for staying with us at Darling Country Dwelling. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay and all the amenities the house has to offer. The property is in a fantastic location to make a quick jaunt into town, visit area attractions and eat a good meal or two. The porch is one of the best features for a relaxing, quiet evening with the family to sit back and enjoy each other. While the house is close to a highway, it is extremely low noise from the house and porch areas. We hope that you will come back and stay with us again either at DCD or one of our other wonderful properties in the Chattanooga and North Georgia Area.

    Noi I from High Point, NC recommends this vacation rental

    The house was spotless upon arrival. The property was prime location to Chattanooga. We did not have to drive more than 10-15 minutes to the wedding venue and other activities. The property management team was very thoughtful and dropped off laundry detergent which we did not use. The neighbors dogs scared us at first, but they end of being friendly, except they left us an unexpected gift in the yard near the car as we prepared to leave that morning. Overall, a great welcoming place to stay.

    • Manager Responded on 4/4/2017

      So sorry about the 'gift' you received. We are glad you enjoyed Darling Country Dwelling and your stay in Chattanooga. Thanks for taking great care of the house and please come back anytime!

    Overall satisfaction:

    a guest from Goodlettsville, Tennessee does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Pros: Property Management was great- very nice, easy to work with- allowed us early check in and late check out which was wonderful!!

    Cons: There was a mouse in the house (which they are currently trying to address). The dogs next door stole 3 of our baseball mitts- took us over a day to track them down (after a thunderstorm drenched them). One of the bedrooms has the WORST BED ever. I cannot imagine any adult finding that bed comfortable. It needs to be replaced ASAP.

    • Manager Responded on 3/25/2017

      Thanks for staying. As with any house in the country and changing seasons, sometimes mice come in. We have a pest control service and also are very proactive. Again, this is the country, and we do not have control over dogs, but we are so sorry for the difficulties with the baseball mitts. The good news is the owner is replacing the mattress today. While we have been operating this house only since October, we have had a number of guests who thoroughly enjoyed it! We are sorry you will not be back to this property, but please do know, we have 18 others around Chattanooga if this one does not meet your needs.
