Easy mountain living is the motto for those residing on Lookout Mountain. Sweeping brow views, quality schools, and a tight-knit community are among the many reasons why life is sweet at the top.


Did You Know?

Chattanooga has Lookout Mountain to thank for its moniker. The name “Chattanooga” actually comes from the Creek Indian word for “rock coming to a point” – referring to Lookout Mountain, which begins in Chattanooga and stretches through Alabama and Georgia!


The picturesque community of Lookout Mountain offers stately homes and a safe community to raise a family. Overlooking Lookout Valley and Chattanooga Valley, many of the homes in this area reflect either a craftsman or colonial style. Brow Wood, a 160-acre planned community, offers residents the chance to build custom homes, making the area a premier place to retire, and Cloudland Station offers multiple levels of customization in its master-planned community. These homes, and many others in the area, offer a variety of sizes, lots, and price ranges.



Approximately 15 minutes from downtown Chattanooga, Lookout Mountain is a short drive from many of the city’s top employers such as BlueCross BlueShield, CHI Memorial, Erlanger Health System, Parkridge Health System, Unum, 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.



Fairyland, Lookout Mountain, and Lookout Valley elementary schools are the go-to schools for younger children in the area, while Lookout Valley Middle/High School caters to many of Lookout Mountain’s older students. The area also boasts a private preschool, Good Shepherd School, and nearby Covenant College, a Christian liberal arts school where students receive quality undergraduate and graduate degrees.



From medical and dental care to pharmaceutical options, Lookout Mountain has everything residents require for their health and wellness. Thrive at Brow Wood offers independent living, assisted living, and memory care for seniors. CHI Memorial, Erlanger, Parkridge, and Kindred hospitals are only minutes away in downtown Chattanooga.
