The marina docks are locked and have electrical and water services to help residents maintain their watercraft.

Kayak Storage and Launch Facility Some Village kayakers do not have a convenient place to store or means to transport their kayaks. For them, there’s the Kayak Launch and Storage Facility found at I Dock in the Yacht Club Basin. The facility


Tellico Village Living

holds 32 kayaks and is lighted, fenced and locked to provide maximum security for the vessels. Steps away from the storage area are two state-of-the-art kayak launchers which allow facility renters easy entry and exit for their kayaks. Best of all, they never get wet during these two tricky kayaking moments.

Tellico Village Welcome Center Opened in the fall of 2015, the Tellico Village Welcome Center is the first stop for many prospective Villagers. It's the place to get information and maps on the community. Thanks to its central Village location, the facility is the launching point for Village tours either with one of the Preferred Realtors or a Village resident as a guide.

Rover Run Dog Park The park is operated by the Dog Owner’s Group (D.O.G.). About two acres in size, the park is separated by secured gate access into “large” and “small” dog areas. A safe place to take dogs to meet friends, run and play or just enjoy the outdoors are important factors contributing to a dog’s physical and mental health. A well exercised dog is a calm dog. Rover Run Dog Park has the room for dogs to romp off leash with other dogs or to play fetch with the tennis balls provided at the park. Multiple water faucets and bowls are available in the park. Trees have been planted to provide shade. Membership fees fund 99% of park expenses. Guest passes are available. All dogs must show current vaccinations and be either spayed or neutered.

More For Your Money In any given year, Tennessee always seems to have one of the lowest costs of living in the country. This is an ideal environment for active adults who are looking to stretch their retirement dollars. The benefits of this low cost of living are evident to Tellico Village residents who enjoy an outstanding lifestyle with a minimal impact on their retirement savings. Much of this has to do with the limited or low taxes placed on Tennesseans. Here’s a quick summary of the taxes you will and will not find in the state: • • • • • • •

No state income tax No state estate tax No personal property taxes (the state does not tax your cars, boats, jet skis, etc.) No school taxes (investment in education is covered with property taxes) Low gasoline, diesel fuel and tobacco taxes Lowest per capita property taxes in the country Sales tax of nine percent (Basically, a consumption tax; the more you spend, the more tax you pay. The sales tax varies by county.)

Combine this low tax situation with a community that stresses financial solvency and you have a winning location: Tellico Village. It’s a perfect place for active adults who want to concentrate on enjoying this phase of their lives unencumbered by financial concerns.
