Real estate offerings at Balsam Mountain are as captivating and diverse as the Preserve itself. There are opportunities to tiptoe into the Balsam lifestyle, perhaps via shared ownership in one of the storybook Boarding House cabins. There are soon to be new offerings at Doubletop Village that surround the clubhouse. And, of course, we have estate residences and homesites — an opportunity to fully engage this natural wonderland.
The Preserve’s impressive trail system is a favorite amenity of residents, providing the best form of exercise and a chance to reconnect with nature and family. Our knowledgeable staff naturalists offer year-round guided hikes on the community trail system.
A short jaunt from the central Gathering House, an enclave of 10 forest cabins line up along the ridge. Weathered wood, rusty metal roofs and other reclaimed materials from the region give these new cabins the appearance of long-standing mountain homesteads.
Within the gates, a nationally recognized nonprofit organization gives residents a front-row seat to the sights, sounds and enriching experiences that Balsam’s 3,200-acre Preserve and wildlife conservation program offer, such as the Birds of Prey Program.
The 18-hole championship course offers an unrivaled golf experience with dramatic scenery in every direction. Our innovative Palmer Practice Park complements the full-length course and opens the game to more community members.
Bask in the wonders of nature within the gates of the community at our Dark Ridge Creek campsite, featuring a covered open-air pavilion with outdoor grill and fire pit. Enjoy stargazing, hiking, trout fishing, fireside storytelling – endless adventures await.
Members at the Preserve enjoy a superlative golf experience on what may be America’s most spectacular and flawlessly conditioned mountain course.

Lovingly and passionately protected by our Trust, it’s the heart of who we are and why we’re here.
With elevation comes astonishing views and delightfully cool summer temps. Just think, sweater weather in July!
Trails that never seem to end, for hiking, a road or mountain bike, or better yet, atop your horse.
Asheville and the airport are close. But who would ever want to leave?

Just one way to call Balsam home, hidden away on the mountain.
Our passion for the natural world is second nature. This program is just the start.
The 2018 Scout’s Honor from Vinge Vineyards is a favorite. You’ll probably want to spend some time browsing the wine cellar.

It’s easy to understand the allure of the Blue Ridge Mountains. And today, as we seek distance and privacy from an encroaching world, these hills have taken on a new luster. And while all can agree on the region, finding just the right place can be a bit more confusing — for many promise lovely amenities and a welcoming lifestyle. One visit to the Preserve that is Balsam Mountain, and all comparisons will slip away.
