About Colleen Crawford
I (Colleen) am a writer and business owner, and this country home served me well. We moved here from Pennsylvania in 2000, raised three kids, and I ran my business and continued to write. We knew it would be a labor of love, but the mountain view and a cool serenity in the air which we felt at none of our other choices sold me on this place. (Yes, my husband let me make the choice). I always considered it my "piece of paradise" and my peaceful abode. But I'm the only one who didn't mind the daily long drive to civilization (a throw-back to my childhood), so we moved closer to Chattanooga, and now the house in the Cove is ALL MINE. I'm so excited to share it with you, and truly hope and pray you, as a couple, renew your relationship and have fun doing so while here!

Beautiful and peaceful cottage!
Beautiful and peaceful cottage! Very quaint and cozy home that made our quick getaway a complete success! Wonderful area to explore all the beauty of nature close at hand! Colleen was very prompt on all communications! Would definitely highly recommend this place!
The rental process was smooth. Getting to the house in the dark made my wife nervous. The house is old and it shows. It needs a lot of TLC, especially in the bathroom. There aren’t enough window coverings. The blinds in one of the bedrooms need to be replaced. There’s no way to get into the hot tub without getting your feet dirty. Plus, it didn’t look very inviting (the inside was either stained or dirty). Take groceries with you! A foundation specialist needs to be called, too. If you’re looking for a nice updated place to relax, keep looking. If you want to be reminded of visiting grandma’s house when you were a kid, this is the place. The owner is nice, though. That being said, the location is gorgeous! The view from the front porch is hard to beat.
Quick communication!! Relaxing time away from it all.
If you are looking for a place to get away from the hustle and bustle and reconnect...this is it!!!
Night in the hot tub, looking up at all those stars was wonderful!!
Darling home in a lovely country setting. Immaculately kept, very easy to enter.
The hot tub was well appreciated, we watched the sun go down, the lightning bugs come out, then the stars. Romantic, as described.
Colleen was the best to work with. Immediate communication. She takes her job as hostess seriously and she delivers.
We would definitely go for a return visit.
It was more than we hoped for- a true dream come true.!
Private enough to feel “off the grid but still with amenities like Dish & internet. Absolutely perfect!! Will book again! Colleen was wonderful & so much amazing care & detail have been put into this house, HIGHLY recommend!
Peace and quiet
A lovely and interesting home off the beaten path with plenty of character and charm, but with all the modern conveniences and technology to keep us very comfortable. The peace and stillness we found there was a balm to our tired souls. A deer wandered through the yard in the evening, and a little rabbit visited often. The crepe myrtles were in full bloom and the morning mist on the mountain was mesmerizing. The bed was very comfortable, and the towels and linens were first rate. If rest is what you need, this is the place. Colleen is wonderful to work with and responds very quickly.
Take in the mountain view from the deck. Build a fire in the pit and enjoy the mountain sunset and relax in the hot tub while you enjoy music and the stars. Drive a short distance to "The Pocket" walking trail and waterfall. Take an unforgettable drive up the back of the Lookout Mountain and visit the the cute, tiny shops in Mentone, AL. - you're sure to find antiques. Don't forget to stop at Wildflower Cafe while there - make sure you try their Sweet Poatoe Biscuits! Caving is available just a short distance away. And there is often some event happening at Mountain Cove Farms.
