This is just about the time each year when we all think of buying a beautiful lake or mountain house. Summer is quickly approaching and getting away to a cool, waterfront home just seems like a divine way to escape and relax.
Typically, when Charlotteans think about living on “The Lake”, we think about Lake Wylie or Lake Norman. But there is another option, possibly less well-known, certainly less congested and less commuter driven. One that marries the advantages of both ‘lake’ and ‘mountain’ life and is legitimately a getaway, yet is less than 100 miles from Charlotte. Consider Lake James.
Located at the base of the Blue Ridge, between Asheville and Charlotte, Lake James offers an ideal location for those of us considering a 2nd home, or even the lucky among us looking to relocate to a more peaceful year-round residence. Along with pristine shorelines and miles of hiking trails, Lake James offers you convenient access to the best of Western North Carolina.
Living at Lake James is living nestled among amazing recreational spots like Lake James State Park and the 500,000-acre Pisgah National Forest. It’s living just a short drive to the Blue Ridge Parkway, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Nantahala National Forest and dozens of waterfalls. It’s living close to all your favorite charming mountain towns, like Black Mountain, Hendersonville, Waynesville, Boone and Blowing Rock, with their restaurants, art galleries and shopping.
Lake James is an upscale lakefront community with resort-style amenities and activities, homes of rustic elegance, and waterfront sites developed by Crescent Communities. Many home sites have incredible views of Pisgah National Forest, Linville Gorge Wilderness and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
