A tiny town with a big impact and a perfect charming downtown.

Welcome to Lenoir City

Just west of Farragut is Lenoir City, Tennessee. Located in Loudon County, Lenoir City is a tiny town with a big impact. It is only 8.4 square miles with a population of around 10,000 and it is booming with new businesses, restaurants, and homes. The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) operates the Fort Loudon Dam and Watts Barr Dam, which create a multitude of lakes that give the area the nickname “Lakeway to the Smokies.” It’s only 15 minutes to McGhee Tyson Airport and 35 minutes from Downtown Knoxville and 45 minutes from the Great Smokey Mountain National Park. For those looking for nearby healthcare, the brand new Fort Loudon Medical Center hospital offers convenient, world-class medical services.
Lenoir City boasts a charming downtown that is perfect for afternoon strolls and shopping in small local boutiques like Cedar & Twine, The Sparkling Pig, and Sadies. The Historic District downtown boasts homes with storied characters. Four major waterways converge in the area; the French Broad, Holston, Tennessee River, and Lake Loudon; all provide many opportunities for home ownership on the water, and most are available for an affordable price. Many new residential communities are being built as the city grows. Very close by, in Loudon, is one of the nation’s most famous communities for retirement, Tellico Village. Because of this and other communities (like Rarity Bay in Vonore), many retirees have flocked to the area looking for an affordable home. East Tennessee boasts temperate weather, plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities like hiking and boating, and a low cost of living. Two beautiful subdivisions in Lenoir City, Avalon, and WindRiver Lakefront & Golf Community, offer properties with incredible views of Lake Loudon and the Smoky Mountains, as well as amenities like fitness classes, a pool, dining, golf, and tennis.
If you have a young family, Lenoir City is certainly a wonderful option. It has a small, hometown vibe but the surrounding area has big opportunities for living, working, and playing. Lenoir City has multiple options for primary school. There are both the Lenoir City Schools and the London County Schools from which you can choose.
If you love the outdoors, Lenoir City is mostly a rural community at this time. There is plenty of space to spread your wings. Visit the Fort Loudon Dam and hike through the Lenoir City Park and Hall Bend Trail along Tellico Lake. Visit the Native American National Archaeologic site on Bussell Island. And of course, there are several marinas to house your boat if you love the “lake life.”
