Big Canoe
Winner of NAHB Silver Award for 2014 Masterplanned Community of the Year and named 2011 Community of the Year by Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association, Big Canoe provides a unique national park-like residential environment with more than 8,000 acres of North Georgia woodlands, meadows, lakes, and streams – all just an hour North of Atlanta.

With over $40 million in assets, conservative fiscal management over the past two decades has enabled the growth of a thriving community and well-developed infrastructure, including a top-rated 27-hole mountain golf course and one of the finest tennis complexes in the Atlanta area.

Just 15 minutes from the start of the Appalachian Trail, Big Canoe boasts more than 2,000 acres of accessible green space with miles of private trails and a full complement of resort-style amenities owned by the POA, along with an extensive inventory of homes and residential lots for sale. Buyers can choose from a selection of new and resale properties within a variety of neighborhoods, and there are no construction deadlines for lot owners in most Big Canoe neighborhoods.

    The Big Canoe POA provides community fire protection and emergency medical services, with seven fire stations on the property, around-the-clock EMS staffing and a state-certified Basic Life Support Vehicle.
