Balsam Mountain Preserve is a Western North Carolina mountain community with a history steeped in preservation and built on a commitment to preserve its natural surroundings. Located less than 40 minutes west of Asheville, this gated community offers a mountain lifestyle complete with championship golf, outdoor recreation, and various social opportunities.

Describing the 18-hole, championship course he designed, Arnold Palmer said it best: “Mountainous terrain, spectacular views of surrounding mountains and beautiful streams are what make Balsam Mountain Preserve different from any course I have ever designed.”

More than a golf community, Balsam Mountain Preserve offers amenities for a variety of interests. The Lodge and Restaurant features an inviting dining room, a spacious gathering room with a rustic bar, a TV room and library. At Dark Ridge Camp, members stay in tents or the camp bunkhouses and enjoy fishing in the nearby ‘North Carolina Class A’ mountain trout stream. Club members also enjoy a Sports & Wellness Center, 34 miles of private hiking trails, a Nature Center, and an Equestrian Center with trails, peaks, and valleys to explore on horseback. A planned on-site village will offer a restaurant, general store, community gardens, cottages, and more.

Balsam Mountain Preserve has fewer than 400 homes spread across 4,400-forested acres, with a selection of real estate offerings including mountain homes and golf view homesites with elevations up to 4,700 feet. Send me information now!

"Unique and wonderful spot!"

Balsam Mountain Preserve is a very special and beautiful place to live. Because it is also a nature preserve, it attracts residents who love nature and the outdoors.

"Best lifestyle decision we ever made."

As early owner/members at Balsam Mountain Preserve we can say that it just keeps getting better, year after year. It's all about the community and the friends we've made that are now "old" friends with new ones coming on board regularly.
