3 Reasons Why You Should Retire at Tellico Village

A neighborhood our young kids will have plenty of friends in, a job you love with great opportunities and work-life balance, a car that not only takes you from “point A-to-B,” but does so with reasonable amounts of style, safety and comfort. Your retirement years should be no different. With your newfound free time you have more options than ever before, and because of that, you should retire in a place that provides plenty of options. We may be a little biased, but we believe Tellico Village is that perfect fit.


When it comes to an ideal location, it doesn’t get much better than Tellico Village. Situated in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and surrounding much of Tellico Lake, the community offers eight neighborhoods spread out over approximately 30 miles, each with their own personality. Rolling hills, winding rivers and miles of idyllic country views send a constant reminder that you’ve left the stress-inducing city life far behind.

While the hustle and bustle is a thing of the past, culture and convenience are not. The city of Knoxville is a little over 30 miles away and boasts enough high-quality restaurants to make even the most discerning foodies crave a visit. It’s also home to well-known venues like the Tennessee Theatre and museums showcasing everything from natural history and modern art to archaeology and athletics. Medical and healthcare options are first rate thanks to the renown University of Tennessee Medical Center and numerous regional medical centers.


Activities and leisure options are a very important part of a community, and each of the neighborhoods in Tellico Village offers residents and guests unique experiences. Rarity Bay, for example, boasts some of the best views of the Smokies around and enjoys over 10 miles of pristine shoreline–perfect for relaxing days on the water. Equestrian lovers feel right at home here, as activities like barrel racing and horse shows are a frequent occurrence. Kahite offers link-style golfing and tennis courts and a driving range, while residents of Foothills Pointe often get together for progressive dinners and boat rides. Activities help bring people together and whether you’re spending time on the lake, joining a club, hiking trails or enjoying a round of golf, you’re building friendships that can last a lifetime.

Retirement Friendly

Nearly as important as the quality of living is cost of living, and thankfully, Tennessee is a prime spot for that, too. The cost of living in Tennessee is about 9.7% lower than the national average. You’ll also be happy to know that it’s one of only seven U.S. states without a state income tax, which includes retirement income–only interest and dividends are taxed. The property tax rates are also very favorable. When it comes to stretching your hard-earned dollars, Tennessee simply affords you more opportunity to enjoy the good life.

This is the time that you’ve worked so hard for all these years, so it’s important to spend it where the quality of life is high and the cost of living low. Tellico Village offers residents a place to stay active, kick back and relax and still be in close proximity to world-class arts and entertainment. In fact, our realtors enjoy Tellico Village so much that many of them are residents. Give us a call and we’re confident we can help you discover it’s a perfect fit for you, too.
