In the Homes Digest, you will find properties listed across the Marion County area. Due west of Chattanooga, Tennessee, in the spectacularly beautiful Sequatchie Valley, we are nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Only 30 minutes to a major metropolitan area, yet having the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of nature uninterrupted by overcrowding, noise, and the other busyness of city life.
But don't think for one second that there's nothing to do around here! There are several events including the National Cornbread Festival that showcase the cultural heritage of this county. Nearby in beautiful Sewanee, in addition to one of the most scenic vistas you'll ever see, there is a world-class liberal arts university affiliated with the Episcopal Church. As mentioned before, less than an hour's drive away is the city limits of Chattanooga, TN, where you'll find ample shopping, dining for every taste, an aquarium that is consistently ranked a top attraction nation-wide in all kinds of surveys, and much more. If you want to sit back on your new porch and take in the fresh air, that's fine. But if you want to be on-the-go, we can keep you busy.
You don't have a problem with humidity, do you? We'll tell you right up front that it does get a little humid here, but in actuality the climate is mild for a good part of the year. We have fairly hot summers, pretty mild winters (typically one or two good snowfalls a year), and glorious autumns and springs. As a matter of fact, you can just click here to find out the weather right now.
We could talk for as long as you like, but the bottom line is that we think you'll like it here. Life as slow or as fast as you choose, a relatively low cost of living, great community schools and friendly folks aplenty all work together to make this a place you'll be glad to call home.
