Two different chains. Look at US 70 - there are two dollar generals between Crossville and Sparta. Basically in the middle of nowhere. They have had a very agressive expansion policy.

I've noticed them popping up other rural places but none come to mind right now.

We too decided on TN to retire after a few years of searching and made our first visit to TN last spring after lots of internet research and found our piece of paradise and made a offer on the last day of our two-week visit. It's up in the northeastern part of the state, fairly private 20 mountain acres with about 1000 feet of a river running through it and for much less than your stated budget. We will be downsizing from a 3100 sq ft home in the burbs to a 1000 sq ft cabin we are having built. Not exactly a waterfall, but pretty nice nonetheless.

Thumbs up Lookout Mtn , CHATTANOOGA

R.B. Your piece of paradise is easy to find on the south side of Chattanooga, North Georgia
known as Lookout Mtn.. We were at a music friend "Small LODGE " for a Christmas Jam & she
had a private WaterFall thru the trees.... New Construction on the plateau, has many lots.. This
would give you the time to sell north property..

Located on the east or backside of the Camping / day use State park known as "CLOUDLAND CANYON
LINK here https://www.google.com/search?q=clou...w=1455&bih=727 for their waterfalls, etc.
Many have retired to the Chattanooga area... We did from the Fla area, ,But upper New York state
natives,, Winter Ski mtn workers who gave up the snow...

Pvt msg mail if you wish any other questions, etc.. This area is also very close to the Civil war Battlefield
with its re-enactments. Lots of ridge top Hiking tails all thru this GORGE region known as the "Grand Canyon of the East... "LULU lake FALLS is another area to Google & view their falls or picnic hike. LINK LuLu https://www.google.com/search?q=clou...falls&tbm=isch
many senior clubs to go on a Tuesday or wed hike to these photo spots..

RBohach - We just found our little piece of paradise and will be moving to Eastern TN soon. Cannot really help you much in picking an area to zero in on but can comment on the Real Estate problem. We had a very difficult time getting any agent to help. We spent several hours with one who said he was interested in working with us - he did nothing except put us into some automatic email notification program that sent us listings that were not even close to what we had discussed. Basically the same with a couple of others. We agreed to sign a buyers agent agreement, but that didn't help.

We found our place ourselves by searching the Realtor site, and then going to Google Earth, to research (as well as the property tax sites). I would highly recommend Google Earth. You can get an overhead view but more importantly, to me, you can virtually drive by the property and thru the neighborhood and get a feeling for the area. With the absence of building codes and zoning in much of rural TN, there are some spots you may want to avoid, and doing the virtual drive by can save you a lot of trouble.

Once we found a likely property, we made an appointment with the listing agent to see it. After we found the winner, the agent we used was very helpful in getting the deal completed.

Bob

I haven't checked back here in awhile because our house/acreage is still on the market and it just doesn't seem to be important to keep looking at properties. But - I still occasionally do. Katy-Kate, those rapids are just awesome. I sure hope we can find something even close to comparable once we are in a position to buy.
