Of the 3,600 acres at The Coves Mountain River Club, we saved the best land parcel for everyone and built a well-appointed rustic lodge, infinity-view saline swimming pool, hot tub and outdoor living room facing Grandfather Mountain. Built at an elevation of 1,700 feet, the mountaintop lodge provides breathtaking panoramic views in every direction.
On a clear day, residents have front row seats to view the Blue Ridge Mountain peaks that include Grandfather Mountain, Table Rock, Adams Knob and Brown Mountain. At sunset when the sun slips behind the mountains, it leaves the skies in a kaleidoscope of color, in beautiful shades of pink and orange. At night, millions of stars feel so close, you could reach out and touch them. It’s priceless places like this that remind us of the majesty of Mother Nature.
Sloping down from the mountain peaks towards our gated community are tens of thousands of unspoiled acres in a protected national forest that will never see man-made development.
Our 6,000 square foot lodge with 8,000 square foot wrap-around veranda is always hustling and bustling with social club activities. Special events include our Guest Lecture Series featuring local chefs, artists, musician, hiking guides and educational speakers. On the first Wednesday of the month, the lodge is where you’ll find Game Night, yet another excuse for our residents to enjoy each other’s company in a friendly setting. Every Monday morning, our yoga instructor leads the residents in a wellness class on the mountain’s edge.
The top level of our lodge has floor to ceiling glass with a large entertaining kitchen, great room, and cozy lending library. It is a quiet place to read by the fire, enjoy a glass of wine on the porch, gather with family or attend a social club event. The lower level of the lodge with expansive windows includes a state-of-the-art fitness center with cardio and weight equipment, locker room, showers, fitness class area, and game room equipped with Foosball, pool and Ping-Pong tables.
With 3,600 acres in our gated community, there’s plenty of elbow room to feel secluded yet have enough activity and be in close proximity to four mountain towns, to enjoy the best of mountain living.
