After spending a lot of time at Big Canoe over the years, we understand why families love it here. Who wouldn’t want to live in national park-like setting? A place where you feel like you’re on vacation 24/7. Big Canoe’s forested canopy, mountain streams and sparkling lakes are pure bliss.
The Big Canoe real estate development in Jasper Georgia spreads across 8,000 acres and seven mountains. Development began back in the late 1980’s. Approximately 2,700 homes have been built to date of the 4,600 planned. Homes blend beautifully in the landscape and come in all sizes and shapes. From low maintenance townhomes and lakeside villas, to mountaintop estates perched at the highest elevation, around 3,200 feet. In fact, on a clear day, homes on the mountaintop can see the skyline of Atlanta. Homes at Big Canoe are affordable. Resales can be found in the $90’s all the way up to over $2 million.
And if you can’t find what you’re looking for, Big Canoe’s design team can easily help you a home just the way you want it. Red Oak Fine Homes, Mountain Oak Quality Homes, Peagler Custom Homes, Modern Rustic Homes, and J Bryant Homes are Big Canoe’s quality home builders.
Big Canoe is also a community of all types of down-to-earth friendly people. A place where retirees hang along side young families. Where working executives who commute to northern Atlanta live along side entrepreneurs who work digitally from home in their pajamas.
Health and wellness is a thread that weaves everyone together. The community’s 16,000 square foot Wellness Center is one of the congregating hot spots equipped with modern fitness and cardio gear as well as housing an indoor heated saline swimming pool. Members have access to personal trainers, group classes, massage therapy, whirlpool, and saunas.
The Wildcat Recreational Center is another with an outdoor swimming pool in addition to the outdoor swimming pool at the beach area. The community has multiple tennis courts, pickleball courts and ball fields around the community. One of our favorite amenities are the 22 miles of award winning hiking trails leading to three cascading waterfalls. Trails are always active with dog walkers, joggers and those enjoying a leisurely stroll in the mountain paradise.
Big Canoe also has 3 nine hole championship golf courses that are distinctly different:
- 9 Hole Creek Course overlooking Lake Sconti
- 9 Hole Cherokee Course with dramatic elevations
- 9 Hole Choctaw Course accented by waterfalls and rushing creeks
The Lake Sconti Clubhouse overlooking the golf course is stunning. Sports amenities combined with the POA fees are only about $300 a month. That’s a bargain for gated communities when you really understand the level of amenities and services that come with it. Golf is optional and only $150 a month more for full privileges at one of the finest mountain golf courses in Georgia.
We all know the saying ‘numbers don’t lie’. The sales numbers at Big Canoe tell us how happy people are with Big Canoe. While you’re looking for a happy place to live in the Appalachian Mountains, don’t miss exploring Big Canoe real estate.
