Tellico Plains is a vintage mountain town in East Tennessee, at the gateway to the Cherohala Skyway and the Cherokee National Forest. Here in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, a simpler pace of life prevails, where friends rendezvous at the bakery; local artisans sell their fine arts, crafts, and furnishings; and the local “Cookie Caper” fundraiser is a favorite annual Christmas event. The surrounding rolling farmlands and weathered barns paint a picturesque landscape, with layers of mountain ridges and peaks as a backdrop. Small-scale agriculture endures, with beef and dairy farms along the winding country roads and free-range chickens sometimes demanding the right of way! Kayakers flock here when the mountain waters run high, motorcyclists love touring the scenic Skyway – a National Scenic Byway, and fishermen seek reward with the wild and stocked fish in the Tellico, Bald, Citico, and North Rivers. The Tellico Plains area is a rich and diverse natural habitat for an amazing variety of birds, wild animals, and vegetation – over 20,000 species of plants, mammals, reptiles, and fish. With comfortable year-round temperatures, a low cost of living, and easy access to urban amenities, Tellico Plains is a desirable place to live, retire, getaway, and run a business. Real estate costs are relatively low; commercial and residential properties are available, as are beautiful tracts of land. In recent decades, many energetic, creative individuals have left the rat race behind, happily relocating here – embracing a lifestyle which balances making a living with enjoying life.
