Experience the Wonders and Tranquility of Lake James!
Imagine building a private compound for your family among mountains and emerald green forests so lush and beautiful they were chosen as the setting for the 1992 motion picture “The Last of the Mohicans." Welcome to Lake James, North Carolina!
Nestled in the foothills of the Southern Appalachians, in the gently rolling piedmont of the Blue Ridge Mountains and 1,200 feet above sea level, Lake James offers natural beauty, mountain vistas, and clear blue water. The Lake, fed by the Pisgah Mountains was created between 1916 and 1923, and boasts 150 miles of wooded shoreline and 6510 acres of alluring cool water with hidden coves, providing for numerous activities from fishing, boating, sailing, skiing or taking pleasure in watching the sunset behind the mountains. So pristine and meticulously managed, it is one of the clearest and cleanest lakes in the Carolinas.
Lake James celebrates its environment and engenders the best of life in Western North Carolina, including a wide array of state and national parks like Lake James State Park, Linville Gorge, and South Mountains State Park. Residents enjoy access to surrounding historic quaint main street communities such as Morganton, Marion, Valdese and Hickory, while still in close proximity to some of the most exciting communities in the Carolinas.
Also conveniently near nationally recognized health care facilities and a wealth of natural attractions and entertainment venues, if you are looking to build or buy you must see Lake James and experience for yourself the splendor, serenity and breathtaking views of the mountains. Then you will know why this lake is in a class by itself.
In fact, it’s easy to get away from it all on Lake James, but when you’re ready to explore a little, you’re just an hour away from a thriving arts and cultural community in Asheville, N.C., an hour-and-a-half from the metropolitan cities of Charlotte, N.C., and Greenville, S.C., and an hour-and-a-half from skiing in the Appalachian Mountains.
Geographically, Lake James straddles Burke County and McDowell County, between the towns of Marion and Morganton, just minutes from I-40 and downtown Morganton, NC. A place where peace and quiet solitude are still easy to find.
