A Hidden Gem in East Tennessee: The Breathtaking Tellico Village

It’s easy to see why this lakeside community is voted a top retirement destination.

Situated near the Great Smoky Mountains, just up the road from the University of Tennessee and surrounded by the beautiful Tellico Lake lies the charming community of Tellico Village. The area is highly regarded among retirees, and with just one visit to the village, you’d understand why. Sprawling across 5,000 acres of the remarkable East Tennessee landscape, Tellico Village boasts an ideal climate, close proximity to urban destinations, an active lifestyle and a strong sense of community.

Whether you’re planning for retirement, already retired, or you’re just looking for a luxurious, relaxing place to reside, Tellico Village offers its residents an unbeatable lifestyle. As the saying goes, “It’s Better at Tellico Village,” and we think we know why:

Optimal Climate

Tellico Village has attracted residents from every state in the U.S., and it’s largely due to the area’s mild weather. It’s rare to find a climate with four seasons, but East Tennessee gives residents a taste of them all. With our beautiful spring and fall, lake season isn’t limited to the summer months.

Although the area experiences a winter, it might not be what you’re used to. You probably won’t get much use out of your snow shovel, and snow boots are only optional. A light dusting to create a beautiful wintry scene is usually the extent of the region’s winter.

Outdoor Recreation

The Tellico Village community fosters an active lifestyle for residents who enjoy a variety of outdoor activities. For those who are interested in the area’s lake life, there’s no shortage of water activities. Tellico Lake is ideal for boating, fishing, swimming, canoeing and paddle boarding. For land recreation, residents enjoy the community’s pristine walking trails. In addition, golfers can enjoy the convenience of having three championship golf courses located throughout the village.

Clubs and Activities

Community is an integral part of the Tellico Village lifestyle. With an extensive list of clubs, service organizations and volunteer groups, residents quickly get to know their neighbors. For hobby-specific groups, residents can join the Tellico Village Garden Club, Tellico Riders Motorcycle Club and Tellico Village Hikers Club, among others. Out-of-towners enjoy state-specific clubs that allow them to connect with members who are from their home state. With over 100 clubs, it’s hard not to find a group of like-minded individuals.
