1) Tiny Houses by Live a Little Chatt (Rising Fawn)
I initially discovered these tiny houses by Live a Little Chatt on Airbnb in 2019. There are three of them that sit on a property on the edge of Lookout Mountain in Rising Fawn, Georgia. I stayed in Shangri-Little because it’s the biggest tiny house (ha), and it has a small deck with amazing views.
Keep in mind that the two other tiny houses are nearby on the same property, so you may have neighbors nearby. You share a hot tub with them, which quite literally sits on the side of a cliff. The views are completely breathtaking, especially during sunset and with a glass of wine!
You can choose to spend the entire weekend on the property, but there are plenty of experiences to enjoy nearby. The Lookout Mountain Flight Park is located right down the same road and offers hang-gliding experiences. You may see them flying above the cliff at the tiny house!
There are several hiking trails within driving distance too as well as Cloudland Canyon State Park. You can also drive to Chattanooga, Tennessee for a nice romantic dinner!
2) Lake Cove Cottage (Morganton)
The Lake Cove Cottage is a beautiful cottage that gives you direct access to Blue Ridge Lake, a reservoir located in Fannin County. This is a picturesque lake with amazing green and blue hues along the water with stunning mountain views in the distance.
The cottage itself offers modern amenities like a king-size bed, ceiling windows, a wrap-around porch, a fire pit, and a hot tub. It’s also pet-friendly so bring your furry friends along!
