Rockledge offers an active lifestyle in the Great Smoky Mountains, where the Nantahala River meets Fontana Lake. This gated gommunity is located in Bryson City, North Carolina, named in 2017 by Travelers Today magazine as one of the five "Most Amazing Mountain Towns in America."

With the moderate North Carolina mountain climate, Rockledge residents can take advantage of the abundance of wilderness amenities year-round. Known as the “Jewel of the Smokies,” 10,600-acre Fontana Lake is ideal for boating, fishing, skiing, kayaking and canoeing. Rockledge has a private marina and slips for the exclusive use of its owners. According to Men's Journal, Bryson City is the mountain town for hikes, climbing, and watersports.

Dedicated to an outdoor lifestyle, Rockledge features a network of hiking and biking trails connecting to the Appalachian Trail and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It shares the mountain with the Nantahalha Outdoor Center (NOC) at its South gate, where owners have full priveleges for whitewater rafting and kayaking, fly fishing, a new ZIP line, tennis, three restaurants and a variety of recreational programs and activities. Championship golf, stadium seating movies and Harrah's Casino are a short drive.

Only 55 homesites, from one to seven acres, are planned for the 200+acre forested property which features mountain, lake and river views of which 17 are sold or under contract. All-season roads wind through towering hardwoods, rhododendrons and sweeping mountain views leading owners to their highly individual and carefully prepped building sites. Protective covenants are in place to protect the natural environment and buyers' investments. Send me information now!

His knowledge base of the area is extensive. And Dan is on ...

The lodge is going to be bea ...
