The Beauty Of Living By The Water

Being surrounded by the beauty of the Smoky Mountains is awe inspiring in itself but if you add the element of a mountain stream, river or lake right outside your door it makes for a breath taking experience. Let’s explore a few of the water front hot spots in the Great Smoky Mountain region.

Douglas Lake is conveniently surrounded by Highways 441 and 411 and I-40, thus making it very convenient to enjoy living, working and playing here. Local residents will tell you this is a great place to live, tucked in the foothills of the majestic Great Smoky Mountains. The fish are always biting, the weather is close to perfect, and the people represent the best of friendly, southern charm. Douglas Lake is surrounded by gentle rolling hillsides that provide an ideal setting for residential home buyers wishing to enjoy the good life.

For boating enthusiasts there are a variety of marinas serving Douglas Lake that offer full-service amenities including boat rentals, slip rentals, dry storage, boat repairs and restaurants. There is nothing more relaxing than a day of sailing or power boating along the waters of Douglas Lake back dropped by the Great Smoky Mountains in every direction.

Fishing is probably the most popular sport on and around the waters. Every fisherman has a dream of catching the big one and Douglas Lake can make that dream come true. Douglas Lake has been rated as one of the top 5 crappie fishing lakes and top 10 large mouth bass fishing lakes in the nation.

The majority of the property surrounding Douglas Lake is privately owned and offers home buyers every style of home available and countless amenities. Waterfront homes, water view homes, lake cabins, condos, gated private estates, lake access homes, lots and acreage, secluded single family homes and subdivisions surround this serene, yet active setting.

Aside from Douglas Lake there are numerous locations that will put you right next to the serene sounds of a river or stream. The Holston River runs through the Appalachian Valley and joins the French Broad River near Knoxville, forming the Tennessee river. It offers premiere fly fishing, kayaking and canoeing opportunities. We currently have a beautiful custom home available on the market with plenty of frontage on the Holston River.

The Riversong Subdivision in Pittman Center is a prime location for being near or on the Middle Prong of the Pigeon River. Found to be the cleanest river in the state of Tennessee this location is just a mile downstream from the National Park and just minutes to Gatlinburg. Top notch fly fishing and rafting would be right outside your door with a purchase in Riversong. Imagine lazing away the days floating down the river or relaxing outside with the beauty of the water flowing by. There are currently several in this beautiful mountain location.

No matter if you prefer being able to spend the day fishing and boating, rafting down the river or just enjoying the soft sounds of a stream we can help you find your dream home on the water.
