Where To Stay On Lookout Mountain
Lookout Mountain, An Iconic Part Of Chattanooga
Lookout Mountain is an iconic part of the Chattanooga landscape. The “point of the mountain” is the landmark backdrop that appears in countless photos and art pieces of The Scenic City. For those of us who live here, that point is also a reminder that we are home.
But, Lookout Mountain is much more than that iconic view. Lookout (as we like to call it) stretches for 75 miles into three different states: Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama.
And, within 20 miles of downtown Chattanooga, you will find Chattanooga Vacation Rentals’ 16 vacation cabins. You can easily make any of these cabins your home base while you explore all of Chattanooga and Lookout Mountain.

Explore A Little Further South On Lookout Mountain
Your Lookout Mountain cabin is also a great jumping off point to explore places a little further south on the mountain as well.
You can enjoy the amazing views during a meal at The Creag at McLemore Cove. Or you can enjoy world class bouldering at Rock Town or Zahnd.
Mentone, Alabama is a beautiful, small mountain town that has attracted artists and nature lovers. You can visit galleries and small shops, stop for lunch at the famous Wildflower Cafe, and visit Desoto Falls in Desoto State Park. Desoto Falls (pictured above) is a 107-foot waterfall with a gorgeous overlook that is part of Little River (read on for more info on the river). For the history buff in you, the park gets its name from Hernandez de Soto. It is rumored that the Spanish explorer came through these parts in 1543. The park was also part of Cherokee land until the Trail Of Tears, it was a site where Union soldiers camped before the Battle Of Chickamauga, and it is a site where many of the park’s buildings were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930’s.
Head a little further south to Little River Canyon National Preserve (about 30-45 minutes from our Lookout Mountain cabins and 10 minutes from Mentone). The Little River is the longest mountaintop river in the country. The river has carved its way through Lookout Mountain. The result is waterfalls and swimming holes, and sandstone cliffs with amazing views down into the river gorge. There are boulders and birds and kayakers. It is beautiful, y’all, I promise! You can rent motorcycles and bikes from our friends at Little River Adventure Company. Tell them we sent you!
