With Boone and Blowing Rock just up the road, enjoy a half day in the quaint shopping villages. Drive just 10 minutes out of the mountains to Lenoir to do your grocery shopping or to get a bite out. But, The Coves is about staying in. It’s about starting the morning with a walk along the river and then taking a horseback ride up the mountain property after breakfast. It’s about tubing down the river in the summer or reading a book by the cozy fire in our Mountain lodge in the winter. It’s about learning something new. Fly-Fishing, Kayaking or Mountain Biking. It’s about spending time in garden with family and friends. And when the day is done, it’s time to watch the sunset over Grandfather Mountain. How does that sound?

Homes, cottages, and “lock-and-go” maintenance-free living options are available in this tranquil 3,600 acre community. Living at The Coves offers residents varied lifestyle choices with proximity to all the conveniences needed by today’s family.
The cottages are 2 and 3 bedroom floor plans and range from 1,432-1,949 square feet. This is a turn-key product in a maintenance free environment. You pick your home site, model and features, and we will deliver your dream mountain cottage in just a few months.

Trails The Coves extensive trail system through hardwood forests is comprised of over 5 miles of dappled, dog-friendly pathways which unobtrusively connect the community to the Johns River.

Johns River Park With over 5+ miles of Johns River frontage, The Coves boasts more river to add to our mountains than anyone in North Carolina. The perfect place to work on your curve cast, tuck cast, and double-haul (fly fishing techniques) and reel in that trophy trout. Along the river you will find the Johns River Park. With a covered river front pavilion, which includes an outdoor kitchen and fireplace, you can eat and relax in the shade. The river park also includes horseshoe pits, fire pits, a riverside trail and plenty of picnic areas.

Isable's Garden & Evelyn's VineyardIsabel’s Garden is an inspirational concept borne out of a community that has demonstrated unique qualities of life in the early planning stages. This amenity-rich community is based on the fact that we all enjoy the great outdoors and want to play at any age. Isabel’s Garden is just that - a unique experience that allows for a connection to the earth and allowing both the experienced gardener and the novice to nurture a seed to maturity.
As part of this fabulous combination of outdoor amenities (all within the community) is a demonstration vineyard. This enriching vineyard is a place to nurture the vines and watch the harvest come in. From the craftsman-style trellis to the open grassed lanes, this river-side vineyard is a terrific spot to enjoy an afternoon of pruning the vines, collecting some grapes for dinner or being a part of the September harvest.

The Coves Country Golf ClubAs an owner in The Coves, you are entitled to play the Coves course for cart fees only. The golf cart is an integral part of this mountain golf experience as the changes in elevation around the course are some of the most significant in the NC mountains. With ridge top tee boxes that showcase Grandfather Mountain and Table Rock in the background, the course does not require a scratch handicap to score well.
