it comes to mountain living, Fontana Lake Estates gives you the
best of two worlds – a secluded North
Carolina private gated community located in the middle of the vast
Smoky Mountains playground. Residents have direct access to the
Great Smoky Mountain Expressway (US Highway 74), a four-lane highway
connector to interstate highways. With the location's
close proximity to many large cities, part time residents can easily
come and get away for the weekend. The moderate climate enables
residents to enjoy mountain living year round.

only about 20 miles away. Here you can shop for crafts at a myriad
