Flying Saucer House

If you're in the area, you've got to stop and see this place. It's on a curvy mountain road, so you need to be careful. There was no place to pull over due to nearby construction, so we turned around and drove by real slow.

Finally took some time to go see the Flying Saucer House on Signal Mountain... and it was really cool. It is now painted a metallic silver. Drive down the road next to the house for a different view. Just be careful... it is a busy street with a sharp turn.

Just drive by. Don't stop. It's on a dangerous hairpin turn and not worth the risk. Plus, it is a private residence.

The Flying Saucer House on Signal Mountain just outside of Chattanooga, TN, is well maintained. An internet search indicates it is now available as a vacation rental.

Road is busy, but there is a place to pull off, as well as the side road that the house is on. It is in a dangerous curve so be carefull!

I have visited this unique "Space House," located on Signal Mountain, numerous times. It was owned by my grandparents for many years until approximately five years ago they sold it and moved back to their other home in Michigan. It has a drop-down airplane door which leads into a bar area with 13 mirrors on the wall. You then take a few steps up a spiral staircase that lands you on the main level. Here you find a living room, kitchen with eating area (with a balcony looking over the highway), two large bedrooms and two full baths (one very large with a large round stone tub). From the living room there are a few steps that take you to a small "landing" that leads you to the third bedroom. This is a completely round interior room with no closet. There are small ceiling lights around the edge of the circle. A very fun house. My boys loved visiting and telling their friends that their gr-grandparents lived in a spaceship. It would be a fun house to stay for a weekend with friends. My grandparents are very cool people who loved this house! I heard it just sold again. This time to someone who is planning to rent it out. Check it out!
