11th Annual Fiddlers Convention THIS weekend!

No plans this weekend?? Well now you do! Plan to visit the 11th Annual Happy Valley Fiddlers Convention.   It will be a great weekend of old-time music, dancing, and food along the banks of the crystal clear Yadkin River in Historic Happy Valley. For ten years, Happy Valley Fiddlers Convention has been managed by a group of volunteers who are committed to the preservation and promotion of traditional music. Being a not-for-profit event, all funds beyond those necessary to ensure the continuation of the festival will go to youth scholarships and music programs that preserve traditional music, dance and instrument making activities! It's a great time, and you do not want to miss out! Grab your best buddies and maybe even your tent, and enjoy this Labor Day weekend. Who doesn't love great music, dancing, and food? 11990377_10205276264685394_8267073275898365864_n    

Flowers of the Coves

There are many beautiful flowers surrounding us here at The Coves at Round Mountain. If you have a green thumb and enjoy spending your time in a garden, we have the perfect spot for you. For some, gardening is a great way to relieve stress and put the day's worries behind you. This video is just a snippet of the flowers you will see or you can grow here on our property. Imagine a day filled with a brisk morning walk along the river's edge, stopping along the way at one of the river gazebos to read a favorite book. The afternoon is all yours at the garden. It's time to harvest some vegetables, plant some new flowers and cut some fresh roses for the dinner table. This is the life at The Coves. It's a life that is yours to embrace. The time is yours! Contact us today for an exclusive tour of Isabel's Garden and this amazing community.

Overmountain Victory Trail Coming Soon to Burke & Caldwell County, NC!

Overmountain Victory Trail Coming to North Carolina Mountain Communities   Currently, Lenoir has a beautiful Greenway beginning on Powell Road. The Greenway is spread over approximately 25 acres and entails 5.6 completed miles of paved trailways for outdoor activity in North Carolina mountain community.  Lenoir's Greenway accommodates runners, walkers, cyclists, and skaters. Connecting our Greenway with the next town over, Morganton, is something that has been in the works for quite a bit. Caldwell County Pathways along with our co-partners City of Lenoir, Town of Gamewell, City of Morganton, Burke County and Caldwell County Governments have come together to study the feasibility of a Overmountain Victory Trail Greenway Corridor that will integrate recreational, conservation and ecoeducational opportunities in Burke and Caldwell Counties.

New Overmountain Victory Trail Coming to North Carolina Mountain Communities!

This biking and hiking trail system will tie together Lenoir and Morganton Greenways along Lower Creek and the Catawba River. This Greenway plan will be the preliminary step in establishing a future Greenway alignment along a main stem of the Overmountain Victory Trail. We are so excited for this to come to fruition. It's something that will be a great feature for not only Lenoir, but the surrounding North Carolina mountain counties.

NC Mountain Home Fishing

NC Mountain Home Community real estate

In Western North Carolina we are very lucky to have access to so many beautiful rivers and streams nestled in the luscious Appalachian Mountains. The free flowing waters are home to many desired fish, especially the rainbow and brown trout.
Not only can you fish from our river, but across the street from The Coves is Wilsons Creek. Wilson Creek is a regional refuge for many outdoor enthusiasts with its miles of hiking trails and over 23 miles of rolling waters perfect for fishing and kayaking. The waters of the Johns River flow through The Coves, giving our NC mountain home community not just great fishing or kayaking, but great waterside picnic areas and swimming holes. Although peak fishing season is usually between March and May, Autumn provides a great opportunity to reel in a big one while enjoying the scenery.

Fishing in your NC Mountain Home Community

Roger (pictured), an avid fisherman, and his wife Helen are originally from Pennsylvania and relocated to their mountain home last year. One of the selling features for Roger was our 5 miles of flowing Johns River. As you can see, Roger loves to fish especially when it’s only moments from the front door of his NC mountain home. He is able to grab his fishing pole, tie his line, walk to the river and fish any time he wants. So, if fishing or maybe even fly fishing is something you enjoy and something that just helps you relax, give The Coves a call today. We would love to help you find that perfect fishing spot with one of our North Carolina real estate homes.

Pool Updates!

Happy Monday and check out these exciting new updates to our pool area! We still need to add fencing before we can fill our saltwater pool and spa. Once that is complete, you can enjoy the best pool in town! Stay tuned for the finished product! You will want to come and enjoy for yourself. [metaslider id=2538]
