House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 4 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
Montlake is a unique mountain lake formed millions of years ago. It is one of the very few natural lakes in Tennessee. Our Montlake retreat is a very spacious home with about 20 acres of wooded grounds. There are trails around the lake, and there is a waterfall directly across the lake from the terrace.
Montlake has four bedrooms, four baths, living room, library, great room/dining room, kitchen, and laundry room. There are two fireplaces (library and great room) and a large deck above the terrace. It is a long, rambling house, so there is plenty of privacy for everyone. The master bath has a jetted tub and separate shower, as well as a large walk-in closet and a bidet. The other three baths have tub-showers. The laundry room has large capacity (front-loading) washer and dryer.
The views at Montlake are breathtaking.
Here's what our guests have to say:
'Our stay at Montlake was GREAT!!! Your home was so beautiful and comfortable. There was plenty of room for everyone (we had 9 in our group) to relax and do their own thing. The lake was breathtaking, we hiked around the lake, grilled, and enjoyed the sites. The waterfall was beautiful, it had just rained and it was falling very heavily. The location of your home was also great we were just abbout 20-25 minutes to all attractions, Rock City, Ruby Falls and Chattanooga Railroad Station. Thank you for letting us come to your lovely home. I highly recommend this home to anyone. Hope to stay again next year.' --Carol I.
'We have been recommending your house to friends and family!' --Fabienne V.
'Thank you for the use of your lovely home! We had a relaxed, companiable weekend with our friends. Oh--and the view of the lake is breathtaking! Thank you again; you have a lovely, lovely home.

We have a very special place, perfect for all kinds of day events, from weddings, rehearsals, birthdays, showers, holidays, and business or special group meetings. We absolutely do not permit rowdy events. Large gatherings, beyond the 12 allowed guests, require individual quotes.
Owners were very accommodating. Our family loved it.
The property was clean and roomy with a home feel. The view was amazing. It was the perfect get away for our large family! The owners were very helpful and nice. We loved everything about the place! The only slight hitch was the Wi-Fi was slow and spotty but we still had a wonderful time! We would definitely return!
Plenty of room and the property is awesome. Great hiking trail and views!! Definitely planning to stay again.
When we chose this property we thought it looked a little dated, but come to find out it is supposed to look that way. It is filled with beautiful antiques and paintings. The bedrooms were large and comfortable with lots of bathrooms. Many areas to sit and chat, watch tv, or enjoy the large selection of books in the library. We did not find anything missing that we needed other than our personal items and food. More that enough dishes and silverware to accommodate a large crowd. The view is spectacular and I will admit that the drive up the curvy road was intimidating at first but that was because it was after dark. Local diner was really close by an served excellent food. Homeowners lived next door and could not be nicer. We would not hesitate to rent this property again.
My husband and I and both of his brother's families had a wonderful couple of days at Montlake. Most of us hiked around the lake and explored the various paths and moss-covered openings under the trees. I love that the walkways are cleared of debris, but not so much that it looks completely unnatural. The house was very nice -- large common areas, but plenty of rooms to tuck away for privacy. A separate bathroom for each bedroom was also a huge plus. The owner may want to post the check-out instructions on the refrigerator or something though. I felt bad about bothering her to find out what she wanted us to do as far as cleaning up and such. We all decided that if we are vacationing in Chattanooga again we will definitely look this house up first.
Plenty of room, conveniently located great facilities and wonderful view.
We had a great time.
House was very clean, roomy and we enjoyed our stay. Owners were very helpful and nice. It was a little farther drive than we anticipated but worked out.
This is a comfortable house with four good size bedrooms and four baths. Kitchen is large and well appointed. Back patio lovely overlooking a lake and waterfall. Owners are responsive and attentive. We enjoyed the Chattanooga area with its many opportunities for sight seeing.
