Sunset Bay is a covenant-governed (incorporated April 25, 2006), waterfront community situated on pristine, unspoiled Norris Lake. Sunset Bay is almost entirely surrounded by the lake and the Chuck Swan Wildlife Management Area, a 25,000-acre peninsular wildlife preserve. Located in northeast Tennessee, Sunset Bay is ideally located between Maynardville, the county seat of Union County and Tazewell, the county seat of Claiborne County. Bordered by both Kentucky and Virginia, it offers a nearly perfect climate - cool in the summer thanks to the mountains and the lake, and mild in the winter due to its ideal southern location. And the best part is, Sunset Bay is within 500 miles of 25% and a day's drive of 75% of the U.S. population via quality interstates and highways.
Sunset Bay is just 45 minutes northeast of Knoxville, the third largest city in the state. Knoxville (population just under 175,000) offers fun and recreation for the whole family including spectacular scenery, diverse museums, historical attractions, outdoor activities, shopping, fine dining, the arts, history, entertainment and much more. Scenic Gatlinburg - gateway to the Smoky Mountains, Pigeon Forge, Dollywood and the historic Cumberland Gap are all less than 2 hours away.
