how it all began

the wauhatchie story

Once an old trailer park, the May family has lovingly rehabilitated this 14-acre property at the base of Lookout Mountain into a tranquil retreat, surrounded by forest. Each of our tiny cabins are named after the May’s friends and family. The property’s history dates back thousands of years as part of the Cherokee nation, who called the area Chatanuga meaning “rock rising to a point.” During the Civil War, Wauhatchie Woodlands served as part of General  Grant’s “cracker line” supplying Union troops in Chattanooga. It continued to be an important part of the region’s supply chain for decades as the route of the Southern  Railway. Today, Wauhatchie Woodlands offers a natural escape just minutes from beautiful Downtown Chattanooga, blending modern comfort with a unique rustic experience.
