It's More than a Neighborhood...

After a day splashing in the river, residents retreat to Pisgah Mountain Lodge at the community’s summit, where eagles soar. Sipping cabernet, looking over the infinity-view saline swimming pool asTable Rock Mountain is silhouetted by the sunset. The timeless moment of majesty as the stars come out above the hundred-mile view.

Evelyn’s Vineyard and Isabel’s Garden share the banks of the Johns River and are where residents come to harvest and picnic in the sun. The Coves is the place to listen to waterfalls and spend the day exploring miles of hiking trails just above the community’s equestrian center, Round Mountain Ranch. The Coves is more than a neighborhood. It’s a community of friends who appreciate the grandeur of its location. Here families play together and care for one another in the good old fashioned way. If you’ve wanted a sense of belonging, you will find it and more at The Coves.

Pete and Kay Smith

“What drew us to the Coves were the spectacular mountain views, friendly community atmosphere and first class outdoor amenities. From our first visit, we were wowed by the beauty in every direction and the excitement of joining a young community that offers activities to keep us healthy and happy for years.”

Gary and Sarah Sheckells

Lot 208

“We absolutely fell in love with the views of Table Rock Mountain and Grandfather Mountain. The property we bought has two nice waterfalls at the bottom of the hill. The lodge is…spectacular to say the least. The list of amenities continues to grow.”

Scott Mathews

Lot 240

“The spectacular views from our lot and many others in the Coves, is certainly a major reason we chose here. Equally important was the sense of community that was evident among the people we met.”

Steve and Anne Rayda

Lot 230

“We fell in love with The Coves, because of the scenery, but realized later how nice it is to have the “mountain lot”  AND a community with wonderful people… The distance to Charlotte, where our kids and grandkids live, was an important thing as well.”

Hannele and Gary Biddle

Lot 246

“We love the amazing views, the amenities, and the great people at the Coves.”

The Milligan’s

Lot 212

“We chose the Coves because of the friendly people we met, the great amenities and proximity to all western North Carolina has to offer and views without the climbs on switchback roads.”

The Woolverton’s

Lot 244

“We fell in love with the beautiful mountain views at the Coves as well as the river access for kayaking and fishing. We like the location and small town feel of Lenoir with close proximity to larger market areas. Looking forward to new friends, activities and expeditions.”

Barb & Steve Russell

Lot 241

“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.”

Nell and Bill Fisher-Karr

Lot 123

“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… 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.”
