Peaceful, Gated Community of Shiloh Falls is Nestled Against Lake Pickwick in Southeastern Tennessee and Has Single Family Homes in a Wide Range of Prices
Burrowed into the shores of the Tennessee River and Lake Pickwick in southeastern Tennessee, gated, Shiloh Falls is set along the greens of Counce's Shiloh Falls Golf Course. The community consists of 464 residential lots on 900 wooded acres and has a pastoral quality. Empty nesters and baby boomers comprise much of its population.
Although the Shiloh Falls Covenants restrict design and square footage, the six neighborhoods offer a wide variety of housing from modest two bedroom single family homes to luxury estates. Resales feature groove ceilings, updated kitchens, double garages, bonus workshops, plantation shutters, and large stone fireplaces.
Prices for two to three bedroom homes begin in the high-$100,000s. Higher-end houses with more bedrooms, more acreage and a boat dock top out in the millions. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they may change over time.
The 18-hole golf course and associated tennis courts are privately owned and operated, but residents of Shiloh Falls can purchase memberships or pay daily usage fees. The neighborhood marina is managed by a group independent from the HOA. Most slips are privately owned and conveyed when an associated property is sold. The community owns a saltwater swimming pool that is open from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
Stretching from Pickwick Landing Dam to Wilson Dam, the lake is a mecca for fishermen. Pickwick is the northern end of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway, a 234-mile route to the Gulf of Mexico. The Pickwick Landing State Park hosts some of the area's biggest fishing tournaments.
Counce does not have a hospital, but McNairy Regional Hospital is just 18 miles away in Selmer. It is accredited by the Joint Commission.
Summer temperatures are in the 80s and 90s, and winter temperatures are in the 40s and 50s. On average, the area receives 47 inches of rain each year.

What are the Benefits of a 55+ Development?
Developments designed for the 55+ crowd offer a lot of benefits. The main ones are security, plenty of recreation opportunities and a sense of community with people of similar backgrounds. The benefits, though, do not end there. Nearly all 55+ single family home communities, particularly newer ones, have single story homes, whether single family homes, town homes or condominiums. No more having to go up and down stairs all day long. Many have a homeowners' association that take care of the exterior maintenance, including mowing the lawn and shoveling the snow. Others have rental programs so that if you decide to go on vacation for six months, the association will find a qualified renter for you. There are even communities that will, for a monthly fee, provide resident meals, housekeeping and 24/7 emergency services.
