A Peak Living Experience in the Carolina High Country

by Charles Richardson

The age-old hills and rolling countryside surrounding Blowing Rock North Carolina are a study in contrasts. Exotic, yet familiar. Wild, yet inviting. It is at once the ultimate retreat, as well as a launching point for exploration. Vast, weathered mountaintops pierce through nomadic clouds on their way heavenward. Free-flowing streams roar downhill before settling in the translucent majesty of a deep, hidden lake. It all fits. Everything here is uniquely individual, yet part of a greater whole. It is this same harmonious dynamic that pervades the living experience at Blue Ridge Mountain Club (BRMC)—the High Country’s premier mountain community.

Introducing The Peaks at Watson Gap


Like a forest of evergreens thriving atop a ridgeline, community at Blue Ridge Mountain Club is in full blossom. This is most apparent with the recent announcement of the new condominium neighborhood being built at Watson Gap—a key component of the Watson Gap Village currently being designed. “The Peaks at Watson Gap will be a true lock-and-leave retreat,” says Reggie Bray, BRMC’s Director of Marketing & Sales. “It’s for people who want a convenient mountain home with a true sense of community.” Located in the heart of the Watson Gap Village, these condominium homes will present a luxury lifestyle in a breathtaking mountain setting.

Life at the top is just a short drive away

The proximity to several metropolitan cities in the Carolinas is another huge attraction for residents at BRMC. The community is just two hours from Charlotte, NC, two-and-a-half from Greenville, SC, and three from Raleigh-Durham. The Peaks at Watson Gap offer families an accessible mountain retreat that feels worlds away, yet is an easy drive from the front door to the front gate. “Whether you are looking for a permanent High Country residence or a weekend getaway, Blue Ridge Mountain Club is a place where families come to gather in true community,” says General Manager Jim Pitts. “The Peaks at Watson Gap present an intimate village experience for anybody looking for convenience without sacrificing location or quality. It’s for people who want to come spur of the moment, drop their bags, and enjoy a truly one-of-a-kind mountain setting with little or no fuss.”
