One of the finest views you will find of The Smokies is visible from Rarity Bay. On the list of community attributes: championship golf, tennis, equestrian, swimming pool, fine dining and even Fido has his own doggie park at one of the prettiest Tennessee golf communities. Located in the foothills of Eastern Tennessee, the 960 acre lakefront neighborhood is surrounded by 10 miles of shoreline on 16,000 acre Tellico Lake. Buyers searching waterfront retirement communities will find many of the homes at Rarity Bay have private boat docks on the lake. Tellico Lake is one of the least polluted federally protected Tennessee lakes in the United States and the lake level only fluctuates about six feet in depth during the winter months which is great for homes with boat docks.

RARITY BAY AMENITIES

Tellico Lake was named 'Best Eastern Tennessee Lake' by Boating Life Magazine. Winters are mild and summers cooled by the breezes rolling off The Smokies. 75% of the land around the lake is undeveloped and protected preserving its natural beauty. Reasonably close to Knoxville are big city modern conveniences and collegiate sports. Important to Baby Boomers relocating to Tennessee, it's easy to find headline entertainment, lifelong learning courses, brand name shopping and award winning medical care in Knoxville.

More than 50 social clubs are active at Rarity Bay providing residents plenty of opportunities to meet new friends and socialize; social clubs such as Dinner for Eight and the Rarity Bay Women's Club. Despite Rarity Communities' hard times of the past, a bond has been cemented among the members at one of the friendliest waterfront retirement communities in Tennessee and it's impressive.

The 18 hole golf course at Rarity Bay was designed by D.J. VeVictor and Peter Langham and has gentle rolling hills, stellar mountain views and interesting elevation fluctations on the course. Golf, tennis, fitness, a swimming pool and miles of hiking trails are inside the gates of Rarity Bay providing activities for residents to stay fit and enjoy life. Rarity Bay is also has an equestrian center providing boarding, horse pastures and trail rides to club members. Horse camps, barrel races and horse shows take place throughout the year.

There is hardly a need to leave Rarity Bay, whether you choose to live at Tennessee golf communities year round or as a second home. When the sun begins to set, make your way over to the Rarity Bay Clubhouse for a delicious dining experience. We had the pleasure of dining at the club and enjoying their smoked Prime Rib which was excellent. Prices at the Rarity Bay golf club are reasonable for lunch and dinner. 

Located on one of the most beautiful Tennessee lakes facing The Smokies, to us, Rarity Bay is more relaxing than living in Knoxville. 1,600 homes are planned with approximately 450 homes built to date. Lots for sale are available in the $30k's, Rarity Bay condos for sale can be found in the mid $100k's, villas in the mid $300k's and single family homes for sale at Rarity Bay start in the mid $500k's.

We are a unique collection of mostly "over 55 folks", though not age-restricted by deed. Most have had successful careers at high levels of accomplishment. So there is a homogeneity that is unusual in a community of our size (400 plus homes now, 1100 pus at build-out). This is reflected in broad participation in governance, committees, clubs, outside volunteerism, and social interaction. The sense of family that exists here is unmatched in any other community in which we have lived. We care for each other, and we support each other in the most meaningful way. When you add to this sense of community the beauty of a lakeside venue in close view of the Smoky Mountains, The boating and water sports, golf, tennis, and country club membership, we believe this is the happiest community by far.

This community provides a wide range of lifestyle activities: golf, boating, equistrian trails and boarding. It has a great view of the Smokies Mountains and a top-rated 18 hole golf course with a beautiful club house. The French country-style architecture makes it a great neighbor. It has been different types of housing to suite any personal tastes. It is in the heart of eastern Tennessee. Close to many attractions and an easy one day drive to many parts of the country. I just love Rarity Bay and want others to know it is there to enjoy it as much as I do.
