High Cove is an unusual intentional community in the mountains of western North Carolina, with a focus on the arts, environment, and lifelong learning. We’re located on 96 acres in Mitchell County, near the towns of Burnsville and Spruce Pine, and the Penland School of Craft. Much of the forested land is preserved for conservation. There are two small neighborhoods now, and a mixed-use village center is planned.
High Cove was started by a group of friends who were attracted to life in the North Carolina mountains but wanted to blend the richness of cosmopolitan life with the beauty and peace of this rural place.
Our goal is to create a sustainable community that fosters rich and lasting human relationships, provides a place for people of all ages and backgrounds to live, learn, and share experiences, while preserving the land, water, and native plants and animals.
