Mountains & Scenic River

A rare combination to find in NC mountain communities. Living along a river is peaceful and slows life down to a more comfortable pace. With over 5 miles of frontage on the Johns River connecting to Wilson Creek, the good life comes more into focus at The Coves Mountain River Club. While sitting along the river, folks can still see locals panning for gold like they did decades ago. A perfect irony for the gold mine of beauty that exists at The Coves.

After a day splashing in the river, residents retreat to Pisgah Mountain Lodge at the community’s summit where the eagles soar. It’s the perfect place to take in the majesty of the hundred mile views as the sun sets behind Table Rock Mountain. The timeless moment that makes sipping hot chocolate on the veranda that much sweeter overlooking the community’s infinity-view saline swimming pool.

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 full service 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.
