Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We purchased The Lookout June 2007. We first stayed at The Lookout in March 2007 to look for a lake home. We fell in love with this place. We live in Nashville and The Lookout is only an hour away. We have been very happy and have shared it with lots of good folks. We hope you will stay at The Lookout and enjoy it as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Smithville, TN, USA:
High atop a big hill at The Lookout you can see Center Hill Lake. The views are beautiful. You can see the lake on two sides even though there are trees all around. We stay as much as possible and share with family and friends. Its just a great place for large groups.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is only one hour away from Nashville. The views are beautiful of Center Hill Lake. It is less than one mile to the nearest boat dock and three miles to the nearest marina. Smithville is just 6 miles away and Cookeville is 20 miles away. There is shopping, restaurants and grocery stores are nearby. The Lookout has plenty of space. The top level has an open floor plan. While you are working in the kitchen, you are still connected with all the other family members that are in the Living area, dining area or pool table area. The Lookout is a comfortable place to be.
