Schmidt House on the Bluff is a lovely, west-facing property on beautiful Lookout Mountain. The entire house, which includes 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, is comfortable for couples, families or small groups. The home offers amazing sunsets and is a short walk to the Ochs Gateway Trailhead (Lookout Mountain National Park).

Chattanooga is a very short drive away (only 15 minutes) and there are some lovely places to eat on Lookout Mountain as well.

The space

Mid-century lodge. Built in the 1950s, comfortable bedrooms and calming living spaces. The kitchen is small but built for entertaining. Newly renovated bathroom and thoughtful, brand-new furnishings.

Guest access

Guests will have full access to the entire house. A separate house is attached and occupied by my parents, but you will have complete privacy.

Interaction with guests

I will be available for phone calls and, if necessary, be able to direct you to someone in the area to address any immediate concerns.

Other things to note

Treat yourself to a gorgeous sunset view. Enjoy the large, well-groomed yard and Lookout Mountain sites. If you're a hiker or just want an energetic walk, you're .3 miles from the Ochs Gateway Trailhead, part of Lookout Mountain National Park. You're 1 minute from Covenant College, 15 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, and 12 minutes from some of the best hang-gliding in the world at Lookout Mountain Hang Gliding. (Only for observation unless you're an expert.)

We absolutely loved this place! Check-in was a breeze. The view was breathtaking! It can be seen from the living room while enjoying a cup of coffee or right when you wake up in the master bedroom. Mary was a great host! She always communicates well and was very prompt at answering any questions I had. She also left a very informative 3 ring binder with things to do and local stores. We would definitely stay here again if we're in the area. Thanks for being such a great host Mary!

When I saw the pictures of Mary's place I thought surely the views and house would not stack up. But her place exceeded my expectations. You are on top of Lookout Mountain. Spectacular views from the house. The house has lots of windows and light to enjoy the view. Very close to all the Lookout Mountain activities. We enjoyed Rock City, Point Park memorial park, and the community at the bottom of the mountain. The host provided excellent suggestions for eating. The 1885 Grill is outstanding. Chattanooga is really close, but we were happy to just enjoy Lookout Mountain. She even made sure the fireplace was ready to enjoy, all I had to do was light the match. The kitchen is a bit small if you are planning on eating in and cooking a lot, but it was perfect for our girls trip, there were 4 of us. I've already recommended this place to a couple of people as a perfect getaway.

Thank you so much for choosing Schmidt House for your girls weekend! It's good to hear you got to enjoy the sites and some delicious food. I'll give credit to my dad, for the ready to light fireplace, which is so cozy when it's brisk outside. Thanks for spreading the word that SH is a great getaway spot and please DO visit us again.

My first Airbnb stay and this home exceeded my expectations. We loved everything! Amazing views, cute decorations, comfortable beds, cozy (stocked) fireplace, well stocked kitchen, the list endless. I would recommend if you are looking for a place to unwind but also want to see the sights in Chattanooga. Only wish we had booked a longer stay..Already thinking about a return trip

This place was beautiful, you can feel yourself catch your breath and relax. Mary is great at answering any questions quickly. It has everything you need and we enjoyed a lovely fire and relax after a busy afternoon in Chattanooga. Would definitely recommend.

This was our first Airbnb experience and greatly exceeded our expectations. The view was outstanding. The house was comfortable and well furnished. The kitchen was well suited for the cooking we did which helped keep our costs down. They even provided saran wrap and foil for leftovers. Bathrooms were set up with all we would expect in a regular hotel room. Great location, with a very short drive to Chattanooga's most notable tourist attractions. Don't hesitate to book "Schmidt House!"
