Testimonials




Our owners tell our story the best!

Following are real testimonials from some of the 330 owners from 36 different states!



When my wife Kathie and I decided to retire, we knew we wanted to leave the high cost of living, population density and traffic of South Florida.  We decided we wanted to live where there were four seasons, trees, mountains and some acreage.  We looked in North Georgia and North Carolina, but didn't see what we had envisioned.  One of our Florida neighbors had purchased in the Fredonia Mountain Nature Resort and urged us to come and visit.  Once we were here, we realized that the community offered everything we had been looking for.

The scenery is stunning in each season, and the winters are mild with 3 to 4 minor snowfalls that are infrequent enough to be special and appreciated.  The trails and layout of the area are perfect for hikers, bikers and exercisers.  Hills, or more moderate topography, you can find it here to match your level of fitness.  We have two Golden Retrievers and take them on the trails daily for 1 to 2 hour hikes. Most residents have either a golf cart or utility vehicle and it's always enjoyable to go for a sunset ride around the area and stop to talk to our friends or see how many deer or turkeys we can spot.  The community offers the best of both worlds. The Resort offers a feeling of being in the country with an upscale rural feel, yet all the areas are gated and the main entry gate is manned with Sheriff's Deputies in the evenings.

The best part of the community is the people who live here. If there is a problem, a tree down, a health issue, everyone pitches in to help out.  From a social standpoint, there is always something going on.  You can be as active or as private as you like. There is a monthly potluck event held in the clubhouse that provides new residents an easy way to meet and make new friends.

Finally, the ownership/developer team has been a pleasure to work with.  They are transparent, attentive to resident concerns, and a genuine love and appreciation for the nature here.  Come for a visit - You won't be disappointed.

Our children moved from Atlanta to Chattanooga in 1997. My wife and I visited them often and were taken with the beauty of the area's surrounding mountains, rivers and lakes.  We decided to start looking at property here, with the intention of moving after retirement. Our search began in North Georgia, progressed into North Carolina and ended in Tennessee.

In October 2004, we discovered Fredonia Mountain Nature Resort. It overlooks the beautiful Sequatchie Valley, has a scenic view of nearby Signal Mountain as well as access to several mountaintop lakes.  We both knew instantly that our search was over. We bought five acres. After retiring in 2008, we built our dream log home and moved to our own "heaven on earth".

In addition to no state income tax and low property taxes, we enjoy viewing spectacular sunrises and breathtaking sunsets daily.  Deer, turkey, quail and other wildlife are abundant and frequently "visit" our property.  Our great friends and neighbors are icing on the cake. It just doesn't get any better than this!
