Maynardville is a small , quiet community with some surprisingly interesting perks! There is an excellent Chiropractor (who hails from Canada) on the hill behind the McDonald's. The best vet around is Seelhorst's in Tazewell. (If you love your pet, don't use the one in Maynardville behind the First Century Bank!!)There is some of the best Chinese food the next town over (Tazewell) at the Red Door Restaurant, as well as the best southern breakfasts at The dew Drop Inn and 33 Diner. There are many wonderful local artists and a fairly new artist's co-op. The commute to the north side of Knoxville from Maynardville is about 25 minutes. Halls/Fountain City or Powell is about 15 minutes and they usually have most of your necessities as well as better restaurants, shopping and pharmacies. Sharps Chapel is only 15-20 minutes north of Maynardville and is very private and equidistant from Maynardville and Tazewell/New Tazewell. There are a lot of places for sale that are what you are looking for-and the taxes are very affordable!
