Hello! This is my first post on this website. We're spending much time researching Tennessee land available on the internet but would like some [u]personal advice-- I am in California and want to buy land (not in a real estate development) in Tennessee-- 20-and up acres -- with sewer and water, road access -- a lake, stream or river would be great-- a woods is mandatory -- we'd like to be about an hour from Nashville-- if possible-- Our dream is to create a small Christian retreat--
Some personal advice would be great-- I have found some incredible buys on the internet, but don't know about the areas. And it would be terrible to buy land right next to a condominium development or highly developed area- or an undesireable part of the state, or land that would wipe us out financially to develop and build on--
Advice?
Thanks so much!!

There is a really nice Christian retreat near me - Doe River Gorge - check it out online. Maybe you could email them for advice. I'm sure others on here will also have some good advice. Good luck to you!

Jody, I think your farm is beautiful just as it is. Brush and all. Where else are those bunnies and birdies supposed to hang out? Good luck selling. I am sure this is hard for you

Hello I go to TN all the time my wife and I are from San Diego and have been going there for the past 14 years. We went for the Music then fell in love with the land and most of the people we have met. We just made a buy on some land in middle TN we love it. I would be glad to share what I know and have some wonderful RE contacts there as well.
Moderator cut: personal info cut

Within an hour of Nashville are lots and lots of nice places that could fit what you are looking for. There are some counties where property is considerably cheaper than other places, usually due to the hard economic times some of those counties are having. If you intend on making the place a permanent long-term home and therefore re-sell value isn't that big a concern to you those counties may be a smart place to look.

Two counties that come to mind that would be good settings for a retreat and have been hard-hit economically (and therefore have some real estate bargains) are Perry and Lewis counties. Both counties are very rural, small towns. However, both already have a number of "retreat" or camping type places. Gorgeous areas, and sound like they may fit what you're looking for.

You wouldn't happen to have some skin in that game now, would you?
