Tellico Plains, Tennessee
"The Little Town with the Big Back Yard"

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.

Outdoor recreational opportunities are plentiful, with hiking, camping, picnicking, swimming, bicycling, boating, fishing, hunting, sight-seeing and more. Backpackers can discover secluded unspoiled wilderness, protected in the 640,000-acre Cherokee National Forest. Tellico Plains is proud to be a Trail Town, as designated by the Southeastern Foot Trails Coalition (SEFTC) and the Benton MacKaye Trail Association (BMTA) in 2014. Bald RIver Falls, just a short drive into the Cherokee National Forest from the center of Tellico Plains, cascades nearly 100 feet, and is easily viewed from the roadside, making it a popular area landmark. The Coker Creek Gold Festival heralds autumn with old-fashioned family fun, and music in the Town Square gazebo attracts crowds for Independence Day. Remnants of traditional Appalachian mountain heritage are evident and appreciated, and Cherokee roots in this area are preserved and celebrated.

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.
