The Retreat at

Water's Edge

Easy access. A world away.

Nestled in the South Cumberland forest, The Retreat at Water’s Edge is just 90 minutes away from Nashville and an hour’s drive from Chattanooga, TN.

And yet, it’s a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life.


At the top of the Cumberland Plateau, beside the Tracy City Reservoir, The Retreat at Water’s edge is surrounded by trees, rivers, and mountains with breathtaking views.


Plus, it’s home to streams, hiking trails, and one of Tennessee’s largest waterfalls.


Reconnecting with More than Nature

The Retreat at Water’s Edge was built with the vision of reconnecting people with nature, with each other, and with their own sense of wonder.


AMENITIES

  • Community Firepits
  • Playground
  • Relaxation Stations
  • Nature Reserve
  • Community Pavilion

It’s all designed to strengthen bonds between families and friends—both new and old—and to create memories than span generations.  


Less house, more home.

We believe that “less house” makes for “more home” when it comes to vacation properties. “Less house” means for more adventure, more connection, more community, and endless memories.
