LExplore the Finest Land Preservation Communities
The nation's best land preservation communities are committed to the conservation of natural areas and wildlife habitat for future generations. If you're a nature lover who is considering retirement or relocation, a premier land preservation community may be the right destination for you.
Why choose a land preservation community?
Is your idea of a great day one that includes a long walk in an unspoiled natural area? Do you enjoy photographing wildlife in a pristine setting or canoeing on a lake that doesn't allow motor boats? How convenient would it be if a large tract of undeveloped land was located next to your residential neighborhood? If your retirement or relocation plans include spending more time in the great outdoors, a land preservation community should be at the top if your list.
What are the benefits of living in a land preservation community?
- Land Preservation Trusts. Also sometimes called conservation easements, land preservation trusts are usually created by the original property owners or by the community developers. Depending on the size of the community master plan, this can result in dozens or even hundreds of acres being left untouched in their natural state. The benefit to community residents is that they know this protected land will be free of future development and available for enjoyment in the years ahead.
- Community design. Land preservation communities often group their residential neighborhoods and amenity centers in specific areas that are separated by undeveloped land. Community residents can then enjoy more peace and quiet at home, relaxing nature views from the back porch and access to undisturbed areas that are walking distance from their homes' front door.
- Outdoor recreation. Residents in land preservation communities are naturally drawn to open spaces and woodlands. Whether your healthy exercise plan includes leisurely strolls or more vigorous hikes, most land preservation communities have many miles of pathways within their designated natural areas. Bike riders, birdwatchers, photographers and artists can also enjoy their favorite activities in these serene preserved spaces. If lakes, ponds and other wetlands are part of the conservation area, then kayaking, canoeing and fishing may be additional outdoor recreation options.
- Nature clubs. Social activities in land preservation communities are nearly always nature-oriented and community clubs are quick to form among like-minded neighbors. Members of these nature clubs volunteer their time to regularly inspect the protected areas, keep walking trails free of debris, monitor water and woodland quality, and engage in other healthy activities that keep these natural areas both pristine and accessible. Club members may also serve as guides for community visitors and organize field trips to nearby state and national parks.

The Cove at Celo Mountain in North Carolina boasts beautiful surroundings, ingrained history and unlimited adventure right outside your doorstep. Located in Yancey County, just 45 minutes from Asheville, NC, this area was once occupied by the Cherokee Indians. In the 1700s, Irish, English and Scottish immigrants then settled in the mountainous terrain and fertile river valleys. The land was mined from the mid 1800s throughout the mid 1900s for precious minerals. During the 1900s, logging resulted in new hardwood forests and dense shrubbery. Our picturesque lots have something for every mountaineer!
The Cove at Celo Mountain is heralded as one of the most beautiful mountain properties in Western North Carolina, and special care has been taken to preserve the abundance of natural amenities found here. These include crystal-clear streams and rivers, entrancing birdsong, trout ponds, towering trees and so much more!

Whether you’re ready for full-time retirement or want to relocate to a better place, Tennessee is a state that deserves your attention.
Consider these facts before deciding on another location: Tennessee collects no state tax on income or other retirement-plan benefits and no sales tax on prescription drugs. Property taxes in Tennessee are very reasonable, especially with available exemptions for retirees and age 65+ residents, resulting in the second-lowest overall state and local tax burden per capita in the nation. And Tennessee offers the eighth-lowest cost of living in the U.S.—more than 10% below the national average.
The Retire Tennessee program is a state government initiative designed to spread the word about all of the great reasons for retiring or relocating to the Volunteer State. From the Great Smoky Mountains in the east to the banks of the Mississippi River in the west, a total of 19 urban and rural counties in the program highlight the unique natural attractions and cultural amenities that each has to offer.
Tennessee has more than 60 state and national parks with some of America’s finest freshwater fishing lakes and hiking destinations that range from the 210-mile Cumberland Trail to Chattanooga’s 16-mile Riverwalk. The delightful four-season climate means that you can enjoy a round of golf or a kayak excursion any week of the year. And the world-famous Tennessee music scene includes Beale Street blues in Memphis, the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, and bluegrass festivals in charming mountain towns like Kingsport and Cookeville.

Callawassie Island, located in the heart of the Lowcountry, is a private, gated island community offering world-class Tom Fazio golf and a full complement of amenities including a tennis center, clubhouse, pools, fitness center, and River Club. Secluded from the noise and congestion of the highway, Callawassie lies miles from Hilton Head and is also convenient to Beaufort and Bluffton (15 minutes away); historic Savannah, GA (a 30-minute drive); and the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport (40 minutes away). A half-mile causeway provides a relaxing, slow-paced approach to the island, where peace and quiet are as plentiful as vibrant activity.
The community hosts numerous social events, activities and clubs connecting members by their passions for nature, art and giving back locally.

This renovation resulted in a brand-new pro shop with three Class A PGA Golf Professionals. The courses meander intimately along the waterways and salt marshes in a way that environmental regulations have made difficult for newer courses; visual interest is natural not manmade.
Callawassie Island is the first South Carolina gated community to have been designated a “Community Wildlife Habitat” by the National Wildlife Federation. This coexistence brings a true community balance with nature. The island is covered with live oaks and palmettos, egrets and herons, and encompasses a thriving salt marsh ecosystem.
