Designed as a mountain haven for individuals and families, Cullowhee River Club is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Cullowhee, North Carolina, along the majestic banks of the Tuckasegee River.
This club-style community gives residents access to a variety of amenities without the initiation fees or club dues typically associated with private club communities. The planned Grand River Lodge is in the heart of the community, with a resort-style swimming pool, Har-Tru tennis courts, lodging and river-view indoor and outdoor dining.
The community surrounding Cullowhee River Club is home to the largest university west of Asheville, Western Carolina University. WCU is the center of Jackson County, bringing performing arts, sporting events, and festivals that highlight the Appalachian heritage of the area.
The Tuckasegee River, or “the Tuck” as locals call it, is known for its superior trout fishing and is part of the Western Carolina Fly Fishing Trail. Residents can launch kayaks, canoes, and rafts from the riverside boat launch, relax by the fire pit, or simply enjoy the view from the River Park Pavilion’s rocking chairs. Hiking and biking trails will meander throughout the protected, open space in Cullowhee River Club and connect to the planned Jackson County Greenway Trail System.
Homebuyers now have a choice of cabins and cottages. Townhomes and condominiums will be available in later phases. These residences are suited for primary and second homes, as well as retirement living. The community is conveniently located within a three-minute drive of Western Carolina University and less than one hour from the arts, entertainment, and culture of Asheville.
