Welcome to Fairfield Glade

Why retire to just a few hundred acres when you can really LIVE on twelve thousand at Fairfield Glade in the heart of Tennessee – high atop the Cumberland Plateau!

Eleven lakes for boating or fishing, miles of walking and hiking trails, 90 holes of golf on 5 courses, award winning racquet sports facilities, multiple swimming pools, recreation & fitness complexes – and the best part, it’s all here today, not planned for years in the future!

Fairfield Glade is located just 6 miles off I-40 and is a short drive to three metropolitan cities – less than an hour to Knoxville and an hour and a half to either Nashville or Chattanooga. Fairfield Glade is perched on top of the Cumberland Plateau, the highest point between the Rocky and Smoky Mountain ranges. At 2,000 feet elevation, the community enjoys cooler summers with less humidity than those areas below the Plateau. But with its location in the south, the community also experiences milder and shorter winters.

Fairfield Glade offers multiple subdivisions with a wide range of home sizes, price ranges and views that include spectacular mountain, lake, golf and protected woodlands. Another attribute is the incredible cost of living in Fairfield Glade – no state income tax on wages, very reasonable home prices, and low property taxes and club dues.

Surrounding Areas

The 1,400 acres of Fairfield North are nestled atop one of the highest points on the Cumberland Plateau, which is the highest vertical rise between the Smoky and Rocky mountain ranges. Due to the temperate climate, this area claims the second highest number of plant species in the world – second only to a region in remote China. So it isn’t too surprising the vast natural beauty of Fairfield North has provided a fabulous sanctuary to a multitude of plant species and wildlife.
