Tellico Village has more than 9,000 residents who come from all over the United States.

Tellico Village has attracted people from every state in the union as well as several foreign countries. This diverse group of people has created a friendly, welcoming community and a special way of life. It’s part of why “it’s better at Tellico Village.”

Not many Tellico Villagers identify with the “R” word: retiree. Most all of them perceive themselves as being active older adults. The community’s lifestyle cultivates this perception.

Opportunities abound for Villagers to foster a passion, indulge an interest, and/or exploit a talent be it: creative, athletic or intellectual. Volunteerism is part of the community’s DNA. With the residents running the community, volunteers are involved in all aspects of Village life. Tellico Village has an excellent quality of life, thanks to the volunteering nature of its residents. Villagers are truly dependent on each other for providing a unique lifestyle in one of the country’s best retirement communities. For more than 35 years, Tellico Village has not just survived, but thrived, because of its volunteerism.

The Village is not like a Florida or Arizona community where half to three-quarters of the population seems to all arrive on a certain date and then depart on a certain date. The majority of our residents are full-time which enhances the sense of community.

One of the many ways new people become ingrained in the fabric of the community is to participate in the Village’s innumerable clubs, life-long learning opportunities, volunteer organizations and churches that serve Tellico Village. This established social infrastructure nurtures and perpetrates the community’s culture which is characterized by a warm and welcoming spirit; a genuine friendliness and a caring and helpful nature.

You’ve got to live in Tellico Village to fully appreciate the specialness of the community.

The Tellico Village lifestyle is an active one and something new residents enjoy at one of the best retirement communities in Tennessee.
