Enjoy world-class amenities and endless activities including golf, fishing, hiking, swimming, horseback riding and gardening in our community garden. Additional adventures await just outside our gates. The Coves is located a few short minutes away from Wilson's Creek Gorge and the Pisgah National Forest. Get the best of both worlds and discover luxury living surrounded by the pristine natural beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

The Coves Climate Advantage

Unlike many mountain communities that are socked in by heavy snowfall and isolated during the winter months, The Coves is nestled in a sheltered valley, perfect for year-round living. Delight in four distinct seasons without worrying about major snow events, biting winds or sweltering summers. Our mild winters flow seamlessly into bountiful springs, balmy summers and crisp autumns, each painted with striking seasonal color. Our golf course and other outdoor recreation facilities operate 12 months a year to suit your schedule.

Convenience Beyond Compare

If you think mountain living means driving miles on steep, narrow, winding roads just to grab a bite to eat or pick up a newspaper, think again. At The Coves you can get away from it all without roughing it. Easy access to the comforts of modern life makes retirement living in the mountains simple and stress-free. The full-service town of Blowing Rock is a short half-hour away, but there's no need to travel that far. Residents of The Coves can slip out of the mountains and gain effortless access to high-quality healthcare, shopping and entertainment in just 10 minutes.

Live Richly

NC Mountain Real EstateFar from being a resort community or weekend getaway, The Coves is loaded with built-out amenities designed for 365 days of activities and events. Active adults can take advantage of the beautiful natural environment while enjoying a full social calendar of gatherings with other like-minded residents. Walk along gentle mountain paths or challenge yourself with a high-country hike. Spend a morning in the garden and then attend a community barbeque or concert that evening. Pamper yourself at our spa and fitness center. While away a winter afternoon in our library, or spend lazy summer days on horseback.
