If you are heading south on the Blue Ridge Parkway, the House Mountain View stop is the last scenic view you will get until reaching Otter Lake nearly fifteen miles to the south, and even it is not that great. Numerous trees have grown right next to the parking lot, so while it is easy to step between them for an unobstructed window of view, you can’t take in the whole scene at once because the other trees get in the way. Without these trees, this would be one of the better overlooks on the Parkway.

I have no idea which of the many mountains in the vista is House Mountain. From what I have read, there is a Big and Little House Mountain.
