Find sweeping natural beauty and landmarks of American history in Signal Mountain, a small Tennessee town of 8,000 residents at the edge of the Cumberland Plateau. Here, on the outskirts of Chattanooga, you'll hike across forests and bluffs, walk in the footsteps of Civil War soldiers, and find a charming home away from home at our Signal Mountain vacation rentals.
Perched atop Walden's Ridge to overlook the Tennessee River Valley, the town of Signal Mountain was named for a strategic headland (known as Signal Point) used by Creeks, Cherokees, and Union soldiers. Today, the town is eight miles north of downtown Chattanooga, 115 miles west of the gorgeous landscapes of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and roughly equidistant from Atlanta (125 miles southeast) and Nashville (134 miles northwest).
Whether you're a Civil War buff or a leaf-peeper in search of autumn color, you'll find a wealth of outdoor activity near our Signal Mountain vacation homes.
Get to know the town with a stroll among the period homes in the Signal Mountain Historic District, or begin your morning with a hike at Rainbow Lake. Spend the day apple picking at Fairmount Orchard on the north end of town, or pay a visit to Signal Point—a National Park Service site and access area for the renowned Cumberland Trail.
Head into Chattanooga for the day to wander the 13-mile riverwalk, tour the Tennessee Aquarium, or marvel at the majesty of Rock City Gardens. You'll also be within a short drive of Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park, the oldest and largest of the nation's Civil War parks. Travel back in time to the 1863 siege of Chattanooga, and be sure to end the evening with some classic Tennessee music at the Mountain Opry.
