Enjoy the Good Life at Tellico Village

Nestled in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains of eastern Tennessee, Tellico Village is a lakeside community where people and nature flourish. With housing and facilities carefully planned to complement the breathtaking natural surroundings, Tellico Village is one of the nation's premier retirement communities. Residents enjoy the waters of Tellico Lake, the lush rolling fairways of golf courses, and the beautiful scenery of the Smoky Mountains.

The many recreational facilities, clubs, and social activities at Tellico Village cover a full range of interests for everyone. Amenities include three championship golf courses, yacht and country club for social activities and dining, and a recreational facility that offers a wellness center, fitness center, outdoor swimming pool, gymnasium, tennis courts and more. Tellico Lake is also the ideal setting for a full range of boating and fishing activities.

Tellico Village is a planned Cooper Community established in 1986 and located in Loudon and Monroe counties, encompassing 4,600 acres along Tellico Lake. Located approximately 35 minutes from downtown Knoxville, Tellico Village allows easy access to shopping, University of Tennessee activities, and the Knoxville airport. It is also close to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg.


Life at the Tellico Village
With world-class facilities, true community service by the POA, and custom-built homes on scenic lots, Villagers are truly living the good life. In addition to all the recreational activities, Tellico Villagers have established dozens of social, sports, and other community clubs and participate in community decision-making. And East Tennessee's moderate climate and low utility and tax costs are pleasant bonuses, too.

Recreation at the Village
Whether you’re in the mood to play a challenging round of golf, stroll along the boardwalk at sunset, enjoy dining at the Yacht & Country Club, leisurely fish in a quiet cove, or take in a brisk game of tennis or racquetball, the facilities you want are just minutes from your door.

Golfers can tee it up on three of East Tennessee's finest courses. The Toqua Championship Golf Course features four tees ranging from 6,910 to 5,230 yards on a par 72 lakeview course. The Tanasi Championship Golf Course offers some of the most scenic and challenging overthe- water holes with four sets of tees that play from 6,731 to 5,044 yards. And the Links at Kahite has an unusual design characteristic − an 808-yard par 6 and six sets of tees ranging from 7,170 to 4,436 yards.

Wellness Center
Tellico Village offers a 26,000 square foot wellness center. Villagers enjoy a six lane (25 yard) indoor swimming pool, warm water therapy pool, and exercise room. The 6,250 sq ft exercise room is equipped with cardio-theater, two fitness class studios, indoor walking track and full service men's and women's locker rooms with saunas. Four Har-Tru Tennis courts are also available.

Chota Recreation Center is the fitness headquarters for the Village. This 17,460- square-foot facility includes a gymnasium, racquetball courts, weight and exercise rooms, saunas and locker rooms, and meeting rooms. Outside are three lighted tennis courts, swimming pool and kiddie pools, small playground, and four pickleball courts. Perched on one of the highest points in the Village, outside seating overlooks the lake and distant mountains. In addition, the Tellico Village 1.6-mile walking trail near the Visitors Center features native plants identified along the trail and a chip-and-seal surface with an 8-footwide path. Kahite Activity Center offers a 25' by 50' outdoor swimming pool, two tennis courts, locker rooms, and a multi purpose room for meetings, activities, and fitness classes.

Club Facilities
Tellico Yacht & Country Club is the social center of the Village and offers dining overlooking Tellico Lake. Arrive by land or water and enjoy either formal or casual dining. Diners often end their evening with a leisurely stroll along the boardwalk. The Yacht Club is a popular meeting and group activity facility, and its design and location along the water's edge is representative of the lifestyle enjoyed in Tellico Village.

Toqua Clubhouse is popular with golfers and all villagers looking for casual dining or a place to join friends for a drink. Seating is available inside or on a spacious veranda overlooking the Toqua course. Golfers enjoy a well-equipped pro shop, along with an adjoining driving range and practice putting green.

Tanasi Clubhouse is known for its spectacular views of the Tanasi course and Tellico Lake. Enjoy generous windows and a large wrap around portico that invite you to kick back, relax, and take in the spectacular surroundings. Tanasi also provides a well-equipped pro shop and food service. Outside a large practice putting facility is available that features 18 holes.

Kahite Clubhouse offers a breathtaking view of the Kahite golf course and Smoky Mountains. From the veranda you can see the driving range, practice putting green, pool, tennis courts, and golf course.

My interests include web development, blogging, travel, wakeboarding, and snowboarding. And of course, spending those hot summer days on the lake. I also enjoy a great meal with friends and family.
