One of Eastern Tennessee's best kept secrets, Norris Lake property at Sunset Bay offers expansive views of the lake, the Blue Ridge Mountains and open green space. Many of the lakefront homes have dockage rights on Norris Lake and big backyards reaching the waters edge. Sunset Bay is a 1,000 acre community located on the north side of Norris Lake towards the town of New Tazewell, far away from the hustle and bustle of a big city. If the need arose, the Big Bang for the Buck City of Knoxville is located about 45 minutes to the south. Folks relocating to Tennessee will find Sunset Bay at tad bit rural which may just what you're looking for.

We were looking for a "relaxed" community to retire in Tennessee. Sunset Bay is totally money oriented. Good for real estate people. Very hard on "retired" people. Our life as well as others is very restricted!
