The Coves Welcomes The Strah FamilyIn an effort to escape the 120 inches of snow and gray skies of winters in Kirtland, Ohio, the Strah family started looking in the foothills of North Carolina. Since neither of them are fans of summers with high humidity and 90 degree temperatures, they narrowed down their search to the Asheville and Hickory areas which they felt would still give them the four seasons without the extreme highs and lows. After touring dozens of communities, they knew they had found their future home as soon as they saw The Coves at Round Mountain. The scenery was spectacular with views you can only dream of and with the numerous activities within and near The Coves, they knew they would keep busy for many years. The deal was sealed, however, when they visited during the Bluegrass Festival and BBQ. They wanted to meet some of the home owners to hear their thoughts about living at The Coves and make sure it was a good fit for them. The home owners they met were so warm and friendly, even opening their homes for them to see! They knew then and there that they had found their future home. They’ve started the process of finding the “perfect” house plan and will start building as soon as possible. They can’t wait to join all the fun!
The Coves Welcomes The Oeckler FamilyAfter visiting The Coves, John and Nancy Oeckler knew instantaneously that The Coves was right for them! The mountains, activities, and nature opportunities are a perfect fit for their lifestyles. They cannot wait to become a part of The Coves family and hope to finish building their home as soon as possible!
The Coves Welcomes The White Family
The White family, originally from Canton, OH, were looking for a place to retire that would be closer to their daughter's family in Charlotte, but with a cooler climate. The Coves at Round Mountain's location and amenities were perfect for them. They love the outdoors, the mountain views and the Coves sense of community. They plan to start building and retire to The Coves in about 7 years, but hope to become a part of The Coves family MUCH sooner! We can't wait!
Message from our Owners: Carol and Bill
"When Carol made her swing through North Carolina and Virginia in 2008 looking for our next home, The Coves and all of the outdoor amenities really struck a chord. We purchased our lot in May of 2009 and completed our home in November 2010. We have four children all over the country, so a central location in an area that had three and a half seasons appealed to us. The kids and grandkids love visiting and always seem to enjoy all there is to do here. We have a family get together every summer and Thanksgiving and usually get some visits in between." -Carol and Bill

Homeowners of the Month: Jason and Jessica
Jason and Jessica were thrilled to find The Coves after moving from the suburbs of Atlanta in search of a more relaxed and nature-oriented environment to start a family. The Coves has been the perfect place for them! Ezra Kane joined their family (and the Coves family!) in May and enjoys picnics and lounging by the creek with mom and dad. He can’t wait to get out of their arms and into the water to play! They look forward to the years to come, raising him in this private and beautiful area of the country.

The Coves Welcomes The Gibeau Family
Message from our Owners: Bill and Nell
"Several years before purchasing property at The Coves, we camped near Grandfather Mountain when the Highland Games were going on. We were escaping the heat of places further south, and became fond of the area very quickly. Back then having Grandfather in our backyard was just a wonderful dream. Bill and I love it here with so much culture, natural beauty and ways to enjoy it all. Kayaking, hiking, horseback riding, even eating the berries that grow all over The Coves property makes it very special here. There are Greenway trails in Lenoir, Morganton and surrounding areas; so despite the mountains, bicycling is easy and enjoyable too. We get involved in as many events and activities as possible, and because there is always so much going on in this area, we're still discovering new places to see. The Caldwell Arts Council in Lenoir is very busy all year long, so being members of their Board and helping with their programs, is very rewarding. We've volunteered at historic Fort Defiance events, participated in trash pickups while kayaking on the Johns River and hiking along Wilson Creek, and volunteer at local schools. Not to mention, along with the best area and events, are the best people you'd ever want to know." -Nell and Bill Fisher-Karr
