In TN it is difficult to find houses above 2200' (most are in Gatlinburg), pretty much impossible to find them above 3500' because the higher elevations are all National Park and Forests.

You migth be able to find higher elevation housing in North Georgia.

What is the elevation of the Ozarks?

I'll have to disagree on the assessment of mountains, just based on my limited travels. Those in TN are a bit more majestic. I am not sure of the "land mass amount covered by mountains".

I, too, considered TN. However, the atmosphere and economics of the NWA region are what swayed me to that area. For physical beauty, it's a toss up. I could have found nicer land in AR, or TN, it just depended on the deal I stumbled into, basically. Either state has some very nice land if scenic beauty is your thing. Also, I have a soft-spot for TN. My first girlfriend was from there and was a legitimately awesome chic, so I have a flawed perception of the state in a positive way, I might add.

I'm not sure, but my house will be at around 1700 ft.

The tallest point in AR, period, is 2753 ft.

The Ouachita Mountains in the sort of central part of Arkansas are very pretty and wouldn't be quite as far a drive as the Ozark Mountains. Hot Springs area.
