About Susan Skaggs

Hospitality is definitely my hobby... Little did I know how much of this hobby I would get to enjoy with VRBO! Our family moved to the Chattanooga in 2013 with the vision to build Gorgeous Mountain Retreat overlooking beautiful Sequatchie Valley in the Blue Ridge mountains of TN. We have loved adding special touches to the cabin, recommending our favorite Chattanooga dives and outdoor gems, and meeting a few of the wonderful families that have stayed at the cabin.

Why Susan Skaggs chose Chattanooga

Gorgeous Mountain Retreat was built as a retreat for missionaries and their families in 2014. When missionaries are not staying at the cabin, we make these dates available to friends and families from around the world. A percentage of each stay helps support missionaries on the field through our ministry, More Than A Sparrow Ministries.

What makes this lodge unique

There is so much to love about this cabin...Indoor/outdoor fireplaces add great ambiance and solstice along with private balconies and wrap around deck. The cabin is surrounded by Prentice Cooper State Forest atop Walden's Ridge. You feel like you can touch the stars. Visitors love to sit outside with a cup of coffee in the crisp morning air and listening to the morning birds and watching the clouds roll through the valley. Our guest love that each spacious bedroom has it's own bathroom. There is plenty of room to spread out in the cabin and great spaces to come together.

Beautiful Getaway for the Entire Family

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an impressive home to borrow for family and friends. We had 10 adults and two grand-babies and this home accommodated everyone with private bedrooms and bathrooms. The upstairs bedrooms are HUGE and the remaining two were also of good size. There was ample parking for our four cars. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to home cook our meals. There is a Walmart and Food City about 20 minutes on your way. Stop there first because you are not going to want to leave. Downtown activities and other tourist attractions were close by as well. The owners were extremely helpful and attentive. Should I ever return to Chattanooga, this is where I will stay again. Thanks Susan and Tony!

Great mountain retreat!!!

  • 4 of 5

This house was very accommodating. We had three couples and 2 kids. Each room was perfectly suited for each couple/family. The large table was great for the family to get together. We had prepared 90% of the meals at the house, there was plenty of room to have several cooks in the kitchen. The bathrooms were wonderful for bathing children and plenty of hot water for everyone!!!

Very nice place!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay only wished it had more kitchen amenities like tops to pots and pans.

Needs a few updates with appliances too. But overall very clean and comfortable.
