Grande Vista Bay

Life as it should be… a little piece of heaven

Grande Vista Bay  is a bit of paradise located in the heart of Tennessee. It is uniquely located on Watts Bar Lake, one of the more than 18 major lakes and dams throughout Tennessee. Watts Bar is situated in the Tennessee Valley between the great Smoky Mountains and the Cumberland Plateau. Residents enjoy views of both the glorious mountains and the plateau with the Smoky Mountain sunrises in the East and Plateau sunsets in the West. The lake system not only offers all of the enjoyments of lake living such as boating and fishing, but also is a navigable lake for shipping and barge transports as well as a power generating dam system.

Close to Nature

 The entrance to the gated community of Grande Vista Bay is lined with white fences through the middle of the development that separates the East and West sides of the peninsula with a beautiful horse farm. Grande Vista Bay is an entire peninsula of the lake with 650 lots and houses many with acreage, lake front living, and spectacular lake and mountain views. It is the perfect lakefront lifestyle to be cherished. The Community has allotted wildlife preserve space throughout the development. An eagle’s nest is one of the star attractions especially in the Spring when the eaglets are born. Many residents are not Tennessee natives, but made the life choice to make their home in Tennessee and enjoy the many amenities and benefits.

Grande Vista Bay is just remote enough to feel like country and like you’ve left the busy world behind and yet close enough to town so you can easily get everything you need. Grande Vista Bay offers something for everyone as a premier lakefront development in the Knoxville area. Perfect location, gorgeous land, and incredible views on one of the South’s largest lakes, covering 39,000 acres with 771 miles of shoreline. Brimming with striper, largemouth and spotted bass, and world-record-sized catfish and crappie, Watts Bar Lake is one of the most popular fishing lakes in East Tennessee. Duck hunting is a popular sport during the winter season.
