Large, All Ages Resort Community of Big Canoe in North Central Georgia Has Three Lakes, a Marina, 27 Holes of Golf, a Tennis Club and a Wide Range of Prices

In the thickly wooded rolling hills of north central Georgia, Big Canoe is an all ages resort community.  It started in the early-1970s and has been growing ever since, adding residences and a bounty of amenities.   Today it is managed by Big Canoe Company, LLC and home to about 3,000 year round residents.

 

 

The community is spread across 8,000 acres, with one third of those acres set aside as natural areas.  Residences include everything from weekend getaway homes to year round custom built estates.  The newest neighborhoods are Bluffs at Ridgeview, with particularly long views, Choctaw Village, a golf club neighborhood, High Gap V, with large home sites, Twin Creeks, with Southern-style cottages, and Wildcat, which has a nature preserve.  Prices are just as varied, ranging from around $100,000 to more than $1 million dollars.     Please verify these prices with a Realtor or the community as they may change.      Buyers are encouraged to choose from the community's list of preferred builders.  Architectural guidelines are in place to " protect and promote Big Canoe's long-term quality and value." 

 

Residents enjoy boating, swimming and fishing on three lakes.    Lake Petit is the largest with 111 acres and is stocked with trout.   The Big Canoe Marina is located on this lake, and its "Shack" has rods, bait and gear for lease and sale.  Lake Sconti is also a great fishing lake and has a restaurant.  Lake Disharoon is the best lake for swimming and has a beach, a swim club and a large swimming pool.  Depending on the lake, only human-powered and electric-powered vessels are allowed on the water.

Two restaurants, including the Clubhouse at Lake Sconti, are within Big Canoe's gates, and another three are just outside of the gates.   A 16,000 square foot exercise center has cardio equipment, strength training machines, exercise classes and massages.   The golf course has 27 beautiful holes and is snuggled among hills and towering trees.   Gatewood Hall is a "lifestyle retailer" with cards, books, gourmet foods, jewelry and furniture.   The tennis club has 300 members, as well as indoor courts, outdoor hard courts and outdoor clay courts. 

More than 50 clubs and groups complement the physical amenities and include an animal rescue club, a hiking club, a canoeing club, a cancer support group, a creative stitchery club, a golf club, a pottery group, singles' groups, a photography club and much more.

The Village Festival is a farmers' market just outside of the community's gates.  Vendors sell  fresh vegetables, plants, fruits, homemade cheeses, coffee, breads, fresh seafood, sausages, lamb, beef, fried pies, pottery, can goods, baskets, jewelry, mushrooms, honey, soaps, pastries, glass painted vases and even hats.

Piedmont Mountainside Hospital is in Jasper and has a good reputation.   It is not, however, accredited.  The nearest accredited hospital is in Marietta, 37 miles away.

Summer temperatures are in the 80s and 90s, and winter temperatures are in the 30s and 40s.  On average, the area receives 58 inches of rain and a dusting of snow each year.   The elevation is 1,425 feet above sea level.
