The Mountains Are Calling You
Mills Mountain Lookout, with its outstanding mountain and lake views, beckons you to come and relax in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. In addition, a large covered porch and two screened porches allow you to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and sounds of nature.

With 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and additional sleeping in the lower level family/game room, there is room to comfortably accommodate 6 guests plus four-legged family members (1-2 dogs welcome). With a garage, partially paved drive, and paved roads in the area, it is also perfect for those riding motorcycles. This home is 5.7 miles to the Beach at Lake Lure, 7.1 miles to Chimney Rock State Park, and 17.4 miles to the Tryon International Equestrian Center (TIEC).
Gathering Spaces and Privacy
This vacation rental offers a great balance between comfortable gathering spaces and adequate privacy.

In the lower level there is a wood-burning stove, game area (complete with pool table), 1 bathroom, a washer/dryer, and combined sitting/sleeping area (2 twin beds). There are also card tables (including a poker table) and quite a few DVDs for those times you just want to relax with a good movie and some popcorn.
Enjoy Nature Indoors and Outdoors
There are fantastic views from nearly every room in the house. In addition, there are covered porches at the front and rear of the home. A screened porch allows you to enjoy the beautiful surroundings and sounds of nature. With the scent of wood in the fireplace, this is mountain cottage perfection!
If you would prefer being outdoors, outside is a gas grill and fire pit. Just imagine grilling and dining in the fresh mountain air; or roasting marshmallows under the stars.
Perfect for Every Season
