The Indians referred to the mountains and valleys of Big Canoe as “The Enchanted Land.” Just one look and you will see why. This spectacular community is situated between seven mountains, and permeates close to 8,000 acres. This is a truly a special community which offers some very unique amenities within the community gates. Nestled among the beautiful homes you will find a country store and gas station, animal rescue organization, private fire department, private security force, and newspaper, but not to worry nature is still the number one attraction here. Each breath you take is filled with the goodness that only Mother Nature can offer, and that is something special. Nearly 30% of the 8,000 acres is set aside as green space for the residents to live and frolic in.

There are three incredible lakes to enjoy swimming, boating and fishing with amenities such as a boat marina and a swim club with its own beach and outdoor pool, paddleboats, canoes, volleyball and a rockslide.
