2017 // Lookout Mountain


Did You Know?
Built in 1928, the Lookout Mountain Hotel was a luxurious getaway for the wealthy, with red velvet carpet, heavy gilt floor candelabras, overstuffed velvet loveseats, fainting couches, and the largest ballroom in the South. Known as ‘the Castle in the Clouds,’ the 200-room hotel is now the main building of Covenant College. 



Overlooking the Tennessee River Valley and Downtown Chattanooga, Lookout Mountain boasts stunning views and beautiful mountain retreats—all within a short drive from medical care, schools, and top employers.

Real Estate: Either side of Lookout Mountain offers breathtaking views, with Lookout Valley and the Cumberland Plateau to the west and Chattanooga Valley and the Appalachian Mountains to the east.  Many stately homes offer clear sightlines to these gorgeous views.

In addition to historic homes with brow views, beautiful new communities and homes with some acreage are available, along with single-family homes of all sizes and price ranges.

Brow Wood, a planned community for active adults, offers new custom homes on the western brow and a neighborhood on the woodlands side with cottages, independent living options, and a state-of-the-art assisted living  and memory care facility.
