This is High Country. The world looks a lot different above 5,000 feet. Our perspective improves. And with that, the desire to grab life by the horns. Nature has provided a spectacular landscape that is vast and varied—a sprawling playground that celebrates the great outdoors throughout the year: spring, summer, fall and winter. There are no limitations to the family fun to be had. Atop every mountain, down every path, through each valley, lies a world just waiting to be discovered. And lived.

“It’s more alive here.”

MICHAEL & JENNIFER BAILEY, CHARLOTTE, NC
Eagles Nest Homeowners

The Lodges at Eagles Nest were designed as a retreat for generations of your family to enjoy. From the children’s playground and Toy Barn, to the Cigar and Wine bar and River Club, life here gives your family limitless opportunities for recreation and relaxation, no matter what age or stage.

We made the great outdoors even greater

There’s one thing your kids will never say here: “there’s nothing to do.” They’ll even forget they have cell phones (at least for a while). The only trouble will be getting them back inside at nighttime. The list of options for your family is endless: pond and river fishing, archery, hiking, volleyball, basketball, soccer, horseback riding, primitive camping, paint ball, disc golf, climbing, sledding, tubing, a ropes course, and much more. We’re also one of the few master-planned communities that offers UTV/ATV and motorcycle trails—through the forest or high atop bald, breathtaking ridgelines.
