The Neighborhood- Overview
The Glens of Antrim is in a secluded mountain cove off the beaten track. Traffic is virtually non-existent and the area is crime free. Neighbors are friendly and helpful. Homes are on large lots and somewhat scattered across two subdivisions. It’s a short drive to a walking entrance to the Smoky Mountains National Park on the other side of the cove - perfect for hiking. The mountain cove area is often rocky and mostly wooded with lots of tall hardwoods, evergreens, and other foliage. Occasional wildlife: rabbits, turkey, deer, and on very rare occasions black bears..
The Neighborhood- Getting Around

Neighborhood roads are well suited for a nice nature walk with moderate to steep inclines. 4-wheel drive vehicle may be necessary in the winter months depending on road conditions. Occasional snow in the late Fall to early Spring months can cause access and egress issues, so be sure to discuss this with the owners.
