Testimonials from our Tennessee Land Owners
After hearing about the Tennessee Land and Lakes Company and the Legacy Shores property on our favorite satellite radio station, we called the number provided. We were quickly attended to by Nick Shuford, Affiliate Broker/Land Specialists. Nick Shuford became an instant friend to the family. He was quick to learn about our family members and our interests in the properties available at Legacy Shores on Tellico Lake. Nick was very supportive with answering our questions and encouraging during the planning of our visit to Tennessee. Not only did Nick provide us with information on accommodations in the area, local restaurants, and entertainment while in the area, he also followed through to make sure we were satisfied with all the places he recommended.
When we arrived at the Tennessee Land and Lakes office, we were enthusiastically greeted by Mr. Shuford. We sat for a while and discussed what we hoped and desired to see at Legacy Shores. We were not disappointed when we showed up and saw the beautiful properties the gated community had to offer. Nick was very knowledgeable as he led us throughout the community. He discussed the strengths of each lot, all the while, reminding us to notice the beauty of Tellico Lake. We were sold on the area and were only stuck with the decision of which lot to actually select.
We loved Legacy Shoes and selected two separate properties Tennessee Land and Lakes. Next time we are looking to make an investment, we will be contacting Nick Shuford. This is a great company to use and Nick is an excellent specialist to work with.

We heard a radio ad and made a call—Nick talked to us and answered our questions. We were contacted by email several times before our trip. Nick made good recommendations for hotel with detailed driving instructions and called us again before we left.
We felt comfortable as we viewed different lots and were not rushed into a decision. He even had cold peppermint scented wash cloths in the cooler to refresh us on a warm day. Thank you very much!

We’d been looking for a lake property for a while when we decided to check out Grande Vista Bay. It was everything we were looking for – a beautiful environment, gated community, fantastic clubhouse, and great prices! Since buying our lot, we’ve had the chance to enjoy the clubhouse and have even met some wonderful future neighbors. Retirement may be several years away, but we are so excited about living in Grande Vista Bay, we put our boat in Watts Bar and spend every weekend possible at the lake. It’s a fantastic place to vacation and we know it will be even better to live here!

Dear Brad: Paul and I thank you for helping make our dream come true to own lake front property at Grande Vista Bay. We feel you were instrumental in helping us with the purchase of lot #184.
We hope to see you when we visit Grande Vista Bay to see our lot with trees in full bloom on Memorial Weekend.
Sheryl & Paul Stadnik
Friendly and very knowledgeable staff. They made sure we purchased exactly what we wanted.

Finding Grande Vista Bay concluded a five-year search for our envisioned environment, development and building site. We looked exhaustively in CA, WA, OR, TX, KY, New Zealand and various European cities – all of which are wonderful places, but none had all the features we had been seeking. We were familiar with the tax advantages, southern culture, natural beauty and recreational opportunities in Tennessee, so we took a week tour of the state, starting from the western portion. We saw many beautiful properties from west to central, but none had all the features we were looking for so we continued eastward. As we progressed, the properties became more attractive and harder to pass up, but we were holding out for the best-of-the-best.
As we arrived into the development we could easily see why the developer chose this location and its obvious qualities (mountains, hills, forest, Tennessee River, Watts Bar Lake, first-rate construction of Club Grande, underground utilities, gated access to home sites, proximity to Interstate 40 with easy access to Knoxville, Nashville and Chattanooga), so we began to investigate more closely. Incidentally, this was in the midst of our newborn daughter’s ‘protestations’ for a nap. The GVB sales office welcomed us very warmly and offered to help care for our baby so that we could go out to see some of the home building sites. By the time we returned, we had agreed to buy the parcel of our fantasies and our daughter was sleeping in the arms of our realtor, rocking gently in a big chair on the shaded front porch – a sure sign she agreed that we had made the right choice for a place to raise her!
When we first saw lot 365 high on a hill of the west side of GVB, it was accessible only via 4WD on a narrow trail, but the sales-person assured us it would be developed just as beautifully as the showcase on the east side of GVB. The administrative, sales and legal teams also assured us that all of the infrastructure would be ready in time for us to start building within a few months. We were further assured that, even though we could not see much water due to the trees on our selected lake-view site, when we cleared some of them out of the way we would be very pleased. All of these assurances came true. In fact, even our greatest expectations were exceeded every step of the way from contract, to closing, to infrastructure development and all the way through to building and occupying our new home – all in just under 13 months.
The GVB development speaks for itself and is a dream-come-true for our family. What’s more is that the GVB developer and staff have our highest respect for their integrity, performance and willingness to treat us not only like clients, but also as friends. Each person we have encountered has responded thoroughly and promptly to our every question, request or need. We whole-heartedly, with no reservation, recommend GVB to anyone who has a similar dream.

It took us a while to actually decide to come down due to our busy schedules but when we did we were awestruck!

The website captured our imagination, a 15 minute on-site tour captured our hearts!”

We are very excited about finding your location and finding our location. It really is just what we were looking for.

My nephew was very interested in the property therefore I drove out to assess the property myself. Grande Vista Bay is a beautiful land development and I have at least one niece and nephew who will always live in the Rockwood area. Having no children myself I saw this as an opportunity to give to them in the future.
The quality and features of the land are better than any other lakefront development we’ve seen.
