CITY of BANEBERRY

Nestled in the scenic foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains in beautiful East Tennessee is our quiet and friendly resort-style community—Baneberry.

Residents and visitors here enjoy an easy drive to the nearby cities of Knoxville, Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge, Dandridge, and Morristown. If you’re willing to drive a little further, Asheville, North Carolina, Kentucky Bourbon Trail, and a plethora of historical landmarks welcome you.

Touted as the safest city in Jefferson County, our residents relax in a rural setting but benefit from metropolitan-style shopping, service amenities, educational institutions, and recreational areas.

Whether employed or retired, Baneberry is a great place to visit—and we believe the very best place to live. Join us!

“Friendly, relaxing, fun, and safe.”
