Nestled in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains and along the west shore of 16,000-acre Tellico Lake, are charming waterfront retirement communities and lakefront homes. Tellico Village is the most popular master planned community and is not age restricted. You won't find high amenity fees or expensive golf club memberships here. You will find lakefront and golf course homes of all sizes and styles and affordable amenity fees. Tellico Village offers 'pay as you play' packages at the three private championship golf courses. A round of golf averages $41 including the cart. Named in Cherokee tradition, there are eight neighborhoods that make up Tellico Village: Chatuga, Chota, Coyatee, Kahite, Mialaquo, Tanasi, Tommotley and Toqua. Rolling hills, scented forests and winding streets ending in cul-de-sacs reflect the small-town charm and peaceful life in Tennessee.

    "Absolutely the best!. Amenities are fully built out, well run, and offered in a selection to suit everyone's interests at very affordable prices. Residents come from wide geographic backgrounds and have very large ranges of interests. We have found a surprising number of common connections, interests, and acquaintances among the residents here, making our assimilation into the community very easy. Affordability of housing, taxes, and cost of living is the best we have found among all our comparisons of retirement/senior communities. We are totally satisfied with our choice to live in Tellico Village."

    "Too many reasons to list! Amenities are extensive and top quality with great ongoing maintenance and improvements, same with infrastructure - roads, boat slips, etc., same with facilities - Community Church, Yacht Club, golf course club houses, restaurants, all top notch. HOA/POA fees are low (lower than other "Active adult" communities we've lived in), clubs and activities for everybody, new friends around every corner. The Tellico area is beautiful - mountains, lakes, rivers, trees, climate is ideal - 4 seasons yet moderate. We came for boating, pickleball, golf, singing groups. If I could give 6 stars to each I would. I would move here again in a minute and friends that have visited us have moved here too. Once you experience this place the decision is an easy one. "
