Help the community by answering this question:


I escaped from the Peoples Republic of New Jersey 3 years ago and was lucky enough to find a place in Cross Creek, a sub-division of Dandridge. Dandridge is a beautiful small town with great fishing and other recreational activities and the best neighbors in the whole world.

My utilities are less than 30% of what I paid in NJ and the property tax is so low it's a joke.

Dandridge and Jefferson County is a great place to live. We have Douglas Lake and the Foothills of the Smokey Mtns on our southern border and on the north we are bordered by Cherokee Lake. Both lakes are over 30,000 acres and boast outdoor recreation!
Carson Newman University is 8 miles away and the University of TN is approximately 30 miles away.
Our county is diverse and is growing rapidly.
Dandridge is the second oldest city in the state. Come for a Visit and Retire here!

Can anyone give honest feedback regarding raising a biracial child in the dandrige tn area. She is African American & Caucasian mixed. I'm originally from the ky/va/wv area & know all too well how alive racial prejudices are in Appalachia .... Just hoping things are improved there. Thank you

I haved lived in Dandridge all of my life and I love it here. We are surrounded by bigger cities such as Knoxville, Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, Gatlinburg, Greenville, Kingsport, Bristol, Johnson City, all just a short drive. This town is full of history (second oldest town in TN) and has the luxury of lake and mountain views. Please visit my website at http://www.kerrygatlin.com if you would like to search for available homes in the area. You can get a lot of home for your money here as the cost of living is very reasonable.

Good luck.

Lovely area. Rural, near the Smokies and lots of tourist activities. If you are just looking and not tied to family or employment in Dandridge and particularly if you are thinking retirement you may want to consider Crossville/Fairfield Glade and the Cumberland Plateau. Anyplace in East Tennessee is God's country. Come visit and you'll stay. DAVE

Dandridge is a beautiful area. It's close proximity to the lake and mountain views make it a desirable place to live. Just a short drive to Knox, Jefferson,and Sevierville are also appealing. Please let me know if you would like information on properties that may be available in your price range. Contact me anytime.
Enjoy your afternoon.
