Hello,

Starting up at Watts Bar for U2 Restart. New to the area and I am looking for an available 1 bedroom apt close to the plant between $400-$550 /mth. Any replys are welcome. Thank you

Check with "Country Heaven TN" on this same thread. Apartment over garage would meet your stated needs. Not a lot of traditional apartments near the plant, so this type would be the closest fit.

I am going to Watts Bar this week for job interviews.  My wife is coming along so we can scope out the area.  My contact in Watts Bar recommends the Kingston/West Knoxville area.  My on-line search showed such a wide range of places I thought I'd ask the forum here for their input. 

I am looking to buy a house.  I would like something with some wide open space.  Both my kids are out of high school, so school's not an issue.  I'm looking for a reasonable commute for me, but close enough to the city that my wife will not have too far to drive to work/shopping.  She's a supervisor at a credit union and enjoys the banking business, so she'd like to stay in banking, if possible.

Any recommended areas would be greatly appreciated.  TVA has recommended Knoxville or Chatanooga as great places to live.  I don't think I'll have time to scope out both areas so any ideas on how to narrow the search would be great.

Derek,

I am looking hard at TVA.  I recently went through the area, spent a few days and looked at some houses.  The entire area is wonderful.  I found Watts bar lake to be very appealing.  The East side of the lake seemed more appealing to me.  A little more remote, close to work yet close to Kingston, etc.  The waterfront places on the east side seemed to have larger lots than what I found on the west.  It all looks great!  Good Luck let us know how it works out.   Most people I know getting offers from TVA, are taking them.  There must be something great about that little valley.

Athens is a nice community too.  It's about 18-19 miles from the plant depending on which side of town your on.  Pretty much smack dab in between Chattanooga and Knoxville on I-75.  I lived there for about 4 yrs the first time I worked at Watts Bar.  I guess there are about 12-15k people roughly for the Athens population.  Everything you need right there.

Derek,
Since you know Watts Bar is about the same distance from Knoxville and Chattanooga and they are both apx. the same size it just depends on what you want in the city.  Knoxville has the sports, Chattanooga has more on the riverfront ( art, restaurants, shops) I prefer Chattanooga, and I've lived in Athens over 20 years. Both cities are growing towards each other so that's helpful.
Good luck,

Ruth

I just arrived in TN from CT.  I report to Watts Bar 8DEC.  My wife and I are looking for a place to stay while we find and finance a home.  We tried to find a place at Sam's, but were turned down because of our dog.  Despite this disappointment I still highly recommend Sam's to anyone looking for quality lodging.  Even though the owners couldn't rent us a place, they went out of their way to help us find an alternate place to stay.  They gave us a tour of the boat dock and a tour of the surrounding area.  They are truly great people.  If the rest of the people we meet in TN are half as nice we'll know we made the right choice by coming to TN.
