Welcome to mountain Living

Balsam Mountain Preserve was developed as an authentic and highly livable community. As you wind your way up the rhododendron-filled private drive to the Boarding House Lodge and Cabins, you'll see this philosophy come to life right before your eyes, like nothing you've ever seen before in the North Carolina mountains.

For families who prefer not to design and build their new mountain home, Balsam Mountain Preserve makes the process easy and enjoyable. Buyers may choose one of our new Featured Builder homes, which have been crafted by some of western North Carolina's finest builders, or they may select from a special collection of private owner resales.
