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.

Big Fork cabin
My first impression as I walked through the door was amazing. Inside of the cabin reminded me of truly being in the mountains.
My grandchildren were so excited to know that they would have there own bedroom and bathroom attached . Not to mention their own entertainment space. It has been a long time since my family members have been together all at one time. We were able to spend special time together and create memories. I am thankful I found this cabin it met all our needs..
Perfect Way to Social Distance
The cabin was much larger than we expected. We could have all stayed in one house versus getting 2 of them. The kids room downstairs was great, to bad our kids were to afraid to sleep alone down there. The front porch was amazing but it was a good thing we brought chairs to sit on because there is not much to use at the house. A lot of light bulbs were out and it appeared people had taken batteries from remotes so we had some issues getting items to work but the owner responded immediately. The house did need a good spring cleaning but for the most part the bathrooms were nice and clean. It was nice having so much space for the kids outside. The road is a dead end so very minimal traffic and we could take walks. With all the rain waterfalls were everywhere and even just talking a hike in the park would lead to beautiful waterfalls. We would definitely come back.
Very clean nice and cozy!

The way to see Chattanooga
Great cabin and great location. It’s just a short drive to downtown and all it offers and then you have the feel of being miles away once you are back up on the mountain. Our family can’t wait to go back.
