Smile looking to move to Crossville, Tennessee

My husband and I are looking to move from New York to Crossville, Tennessee and would like to know some information on the town. We want to move to a nice quiet town and Crossville looks like the town to us.

Thanks,
Donna

Welcome to Tennessee! What made you decide on Crossville? And what information are you looking for that's not available at city-data.com?

It's a popular town for retirees, particularly the Fairfield Glade and Lake Tansi developments. It's got a lot of golf courses, but then again just about every town in Tennessee has a lot of golf courses. There are some beautiful areas near Crossville. That area of Tennessee is also famous for crab orchard stone, which is a pink stone quarried in Cumberland County. You'll see a lot of older buildings and homes there built out of that stone.

Smile moving to Crossville

My husband and I were brought to Crossville by a real estate agent. This is both of our second marriages and my son and his children live elsewhere so we decided to move somewhere quiet and pretty. So our real estate agent brought us to Crossville and we loved it. We also liked Kingston, Tenn. We live in New York right now and just want to live in a nice peaceful place. Thanks for the website to look at also. Do you have any suggestions for other areas in Tennessee that are nice?
Thanks,
Donna

If your choices are Crossville or Kingston, I'd vote for Kingston. Kingston gets less snow than Crossville and is also right on a lake. I mean right ON a lake. It's a beautiful setting. Plus, even though it's rural, you're only 30 minutes from major shopping and restaurants in Knoxville. I can definitely understand your desire for peace and quiet, but every so often you'll probably want to go to a mall or go out to a nice restaurant, and you'll appreciate being only 30 minutes from that instead of an hour away.

Red face move to crossville or kingston

My husband and I appreciate your input. We keep that information in mind when we look. When we were in Kingston we went by the lake and it was so beautiful. We are only in our mid 40's and do enjoy going to the mall and out for dinner. When the real estate agent took us for a ride to look he had said that Crossville had more stores for us to shop at and that Kingston was a ride to get to the stores. We will be going back to Tennesse this summer to look for our home and am very excited but want to make the right choice. Thanks, again.

Donna

Look at Cookeville, 40 miles west a little more up beat. A collage town with a little more growth and younger and more device crowd.

I agree with that. If you want to move to the Cumberland Plateau with its more temperate climate, beautiful golf courses, access to lakes, but still want things like good shopping and good restaurants (and outstanding schools) it would be hard to beat Cookeville.

We will definitely look into Cookeville. My son is grown and doesn't live with me and Mike's two children live with their Mom so luckily enough schools are not an issue. Are there any other towns in the Cumberland Plateau that anyone would suggest that we look at?
Thanks,
Donna

What are your criteria? Do you need to find jobs when you move down here? Are you looking for acreage? Do you need proximity to a major airport? Cookeville and Crossville are definitely the most popular places on the Cumberland Plateau, but there are other towns as well that might suit your needs. We'd love to help you find your little corner of paradise!

If you want info on Crossville, Tennessee will send you ooodles of it. Not kidding. Go to the Retire Tennessee website at:

http://retiretennessee.org and select "request literature" from the homepage.

You'll get a nice big package from Crossville.

Then, go back to the homepage for the link to "Our Communities." You will see Crossville from among the communities Tennessee is promoting for retirement. Click on the link, it takes you to the Crossville Chamber of Commerce. They have a link that says "relocating" with a lot of info.

I'm assuming you are retiring because you didn't mention having to be near a job.

By the way, for anyone else reading this, the places Tennessee is promoting for retirement are: Paris, Paris Landing, Pickwick, Savannah, Shiloh, Crossville, Lawrenceberg, Loretto, Summertown, Lewisburg, Chapel Hill, Baxter, Algood, Monterey, Cookeville, Greeneville, Chattanooga, Bristol, Kingsport and Blountville. You can read "why those places" on the Retire Tennessee website.
