City living can weigh heavy on us all. If you’re in need of a peaceful oasis outside the hustle and bustle of Charlotte, look no further than the Blue Ridge Mountain Club, just a 2 hour drive from Charlotte.
Nestled in the scenic Western North Carolina mountains, just minutes from Boone and Blowing Rock, you’ll find BRMC, a 6,000-plus acre private community where luxury and adventure coexist. And at just two hours outside of the Queen City, BRMC provides the ultimate lifestyle for those who love the serenity of the mountains, but appreciate a close proximity to urban spaces.
BRMC is built on four harmonious principles: Adventure and outdoors, wellness and fitness, dining and gathering, and indoor/outdoor living.
Residents have access to over 50 miles of hiking trails, UTV trails, and more than 65 miles of creeks and streams (home to native brook trout) to explore.
“My goal is to encourage the adventure-seeker and outdoor enthusiast in all of us to make the most of the national park-like setting that surrounds us,” says Justin Kotzmoyer, the BRMC programs and recreation manager.
While BRMC is best known for its panoramic views and emphasis on all things nature, the club also prides itself on its strong sense of community. With ample wellness and social opportunities, you’ll feel a sense of connectedness, not only to the mountains, but to your neighbors as well.
At the center of the community lies the Watson Gap Village, aka the heartbeat of BRMC. The village is a hub for entertainment, dining, wellness and adventure. From exquisite sommelier-led wine pairing events, to outdoor concerts and festivals, the Watson Gap Village offers residents a sense of culture. Stop by their onsite restaurant, Lookout Grill for a deliciously crafted meal, local brews, and a selection of 130 different wines and 50 varieties of whisky.
The Watson Gap Village is also home to the Jasper House, a community gathering spot and special event space equipped with a large fireplace meant to keep you cozy on cold winter nights. Adjacent to the village is Watson Gap Park and Pavilion which features Pickle Ball Courts, Bocce Ball, Horseshoes as well as the most recent addition of Trailside Eats, a casual fare and beverage experience.
“Our team helps create lasting memories for our residents through all of our sommelier-inspired wine dinners, local art shows, seasonal festivals, fire-side cookouts and personal dining services,” says Joshua Purdy, food and beverage/clubhouse manager. “The sky is the limit for any experience at the Blue Ridge Mountain Club.”
Sitting atop the mountain’s edge is the BRMC’s community fitness center, Ascent Wellness and Fitness. The gym offers indoor and outdoor fitness opportunities and is equipped with a yoga studio, massage therapy, a sauna, and a quiet lounge. They also have certified personal trainers to help you reach your fitness goals.
Life at Blue Ridge Mountain Club is totally unique. Their team is dedicated to finding the perfect home for you and your family. Whether you’re looking for a move-in ready home, a new semi-custom build, or a one-of-a-kind fully custom home, they have several ways to make your dream home a reality just a 2 hour drive from Charlotte.
