A True Club Lifestyle on Tellico Lake

WindRiver, located just outside the city of Knoxville in Loudon County, Tennessee, offers opportunities to enjoy, play, connect, relax, and experience life to its fullest. Our vision was to create a community where homes of distinction and world-class amenities blend to create an active, club lifestyle on the lake. We realize this vision every day at WindRiver. While our amenities are among the finest anywhere, it is the rare combination of fresh-water lakes and dramatic mountain vistas that imbues this special place with a spirit all its own. The WindRiver Harbor & Yacht Club makes it easy to explore the breathtaking landscape that surrounds us.

This means we are convenient and accessible to everything important to an active family lifestyle. It’s a short drive to hospitals, restaurants, shopping and the airport. Best of all, all of these conveniences are set just beyond our community’s stunning natural paradise. Outdoor living is second nature here at WindRiver, lush woodlands, breathtaking mountain and lake views, the WindRiver Harbor & Yacht Club offering a world of boating just beyond your doorstep and miles of scenic trails to explore.
