Unlike most other NC mountain communities that are hammered by harsh winters and steep grades, Grand View Peaks is placed thoughtfully at the mid altitude areas. If you don’t want to freeze all winter in the highlands you should avoid Boone County and consider moving to Grand View Peaks in Nebo NC. Our winters are mild and feeling the transitions from summer to autumn are almost unnoticeable in temperature changes. However, there is one big cue and that is the season’s colors that burst forth from all around you in reds, oranges and yellows.

There are many near by Golf Courses such as the Silver Creek Plantation Course, just out side of Morganton less than 15 miles away. Fitting in a quick 9 or 18 holes will never be a problem in the cities around your new home and friends. However just because you intend to enjoy mountain living in our secluded and private community does not mean you have to “rough it”. In fact our location was master planned so you would be just minutes from all the creature comforts of a big city like modern shopping centers, grocery stores, health care services and anything else you might ever need.
