“Peaceful surroundings- Stayed at Old Hickory”
Reviewed 24 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed in the Old Hickory cabin and were overall pleased with our experience. From the time I booked the cabin, until the conclusion of our stay, my dealings with the owner, Susie, were very positive. I found her to be very prompt in answering my initial questions and quite responsive to my request to allow us to check out slightly later than the posted 10 AM on our last day. We did have the privilege of actually meeting Susie when we were there and found her to be working hard cleaning the hot tub at one of the cabins. She told us that she cleans all the hot tubs herself because she is picky about how they are done. We thought it was pretty impressive that the owner does some of the hardest work there, in addition to managing the reservations so well.

The cabins are in good repair and the grounds are nice. We really enjoyed the gazebo swing in the evenings and found the place to be very quiet, especially at night. In this cabin, there is one bedroom and a bath on the main floor and two bedrooms (including the master) upstairs, along with the larger of the two baths. We found the upstairs to be extremely hot and had to use a couple of fans we luckily brought along in order to be able to sleep at night. There is only one air conditioning unit for the whole cabin so you really have to turn it down on the main floor in order to get the upstairs to cool at all. The cabins are a little further out of town than we realized but we were able to get to all the Chattanooga attractions within 25 minutes. The cabin is fully furnished and we lacked for nothing. A very good experience and we would stay there again!

“perfect”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in the Maple cabin. It exceeded my expectations. It still looks new and was very clean. We felt like we were in a private cabin in the woods and the grounds were very nice. I loved the gazebo with the glider. We wanted to have a bonfire in the firepit but we got rained out. I would highly recommend any of the cabins there.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 15 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Chestnut Oak cabin is in a beautiful wooded location, near attractions. It was comfortable, clean, well-equipped and attractive. Though we didn't use the pull-out couch, it would allow cabin to sleep eight. There are four or five other cabins on the property, which would make it a great property for a family reunion. The way the cabins are situated did not impinge on our privacy. We never even heard the people in the neighboring cabins.

“Peace and Quiet for a change”
Reviewed 16 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We found Cottages in the Clouds when we were looking for a place halfway between where the grandparents live (Alabama) and where we live (Virginia). This was almost the exact mid-point, so that was the initial plus. When we got to the cabin it was SO quiet it was actually possible to hear the leaves falling in the woods and the birds chirping in the trees. We had NO plans to do anything in the local area, just wanted to spend time together and relax. This was the PERFECT place for that. Most of the family enjoyed hiking around the property - mainly just walking down to the little pond and identifying critters, but also exploring in the woods behind the cottages. It was enough to wear out a 10yo and a 13yo and they actually stayed off electronics for a while! It was the perfect cottage for our group as the grandparents took the downstairs bedroom, the parents took one upstairs bedroom, the teenage boy opted to sleep on the couch, and the 10yo girl got to have a king-size bed all to herself!
Very close to shopping for those items that get forgotten when packing, nice drive to Trenton, close to Chattanooga (though I wouldn't recommend driving down Ochs Highway as it is EXTREMELY steep with sheer drop offs....nerve-wracking to say the least, and the way that Google Map and Mapquest both gave us!).
Just perfect for a long weekend to catch up and hang out.
