2019 // Lookout Mountain

Did You Know?

The town of Lookout Mountain is named for the mountain ridge on which it sits – but only three of the mountain’s 84 total miles are located in Tennessee. The other 81 are spread over Northwest Georgia and Northeast Alabama. 

In addition to its breathtaking views, top-rated schools, and easy access to medical care and leading employers, Lookout Mountain offers a safe, tight-knit community for families.


Real Estate

Either side of Lookout Mountain boasts stunning views, with Lookout Valley to the west and the Chattanooga Valley to the east. Many of the stately, historic homes, from craftsman to Colonial-style and more, feature gorgeous brow views. Single-family homes of all sizes, price ranges, and acreage can also be found.

Brow Wood, a 160-acre planned community for active adults, offers custom homes on the western brow and a neighborhood on the woodlands side.

Top Employers

Less than a 15-minute drive to downtown Chattanooga, Lookout Mountain is near several of Chattanooga’s top employers. These include BlueCross BlueShield, CHI Memorial, Erlanger Health System, Parkridge Health System, Unum, Cigna, EPB, TVA, Chattanooga Bakery, Sanofi, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and city and county governments.


Residents have easy access to downtown Chattanooga and can hop on I-24, I-59, and I-75 to reach the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport and surrounding cities such as Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham, and Knoxville.


Lookout Mountain students attend Fairyland, Lookout Mountain, and Lookout Valley elementary schools, as well as Lookout Valley Middle/High School. Lookout Mountain School serves kindergarten through grade five. A private preschool, Good Shepherd School, offers quality education and care. Nearby Covenant College, a Christian liberal arts school, offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Health and Wellness

Family medical, dental, and pharmaceutical care is available on the mountain. Leading hospitals CHI Memorial, Erlanger, Parkridge, and Kindred are only minutes away in downtown Chattanooga. Lookout Mountain’s Thrive at Brow Wood offers independent living, assisted living, and memory care for seniors.
