billkarrnellfisher"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

The Donnelly Family
The Donnelly’s have been searching for a mountain retreat possibility for some time and after researching and visiting several areas in the Northwester Carolinas, they found the Coves late last year. They were impressed with the community, the  amenities and the fantastic views.  Several return visits later, they decided the Coves was the place for their mountain view retreat. Originally from the New York metro area, they have also lived outside of Chicago, New Jersey and now, outside of Atlanta.  They are looking forward to building their home as soon as possible and have already begun the building and design process this summer.

What we like about living at The Coves:

We like our community of neighbors with a broad range of backgrounds who live here because they want to and who cooperate to make living here enjoyable.

We like the great scenic and diverse recreational opportunities available in a mountain community.

We like our proximity to Lenoir, Hickory, Blowing Rock, Boone, and Morganton offering access to plenty of amenities, dining, and fun events. Charlotte, a great city with an international airport, is less than two hours away.

We like the remarkable community spirit of the residents and business people in Lenoir. At this point in our lives, we believe "giving back" is both important and rewarding. Lenoir offers ample opportunities and ways to participate in religious, charitable and social activities. Most of all - we like living at The Coves because it's fun. Paul and Patti

The Coves Welcomes The Harding Family

The Harding Family
Originally from Quebec, Canada, Penny and Glenn Harding have lived in Charlotte, NC for the last 16 years. Upon retirement, they realized they were not prepared to go back North and deal with the harsh winters and decided to search for a retirement destination closer to home. After finding The Coves via the internet, they took a drive up and were blown away by the location and facilities. After one look at what would turn out to be their lot, they were convinced! Their house plans are currently being drawn up and they hope to be permanent residents by early next summer! Amenities at The Coves
