An elevated experience preserved
just for you
This beautiful timber-frame facility—with large boulders found onsite and used as its base—was constructed using the latest green building techniques. Local artisans, stone masons, carpenters, and blacksmiths created the details and finishes that give the stately lodge its rustic and natural character. Here, the gourmet Viking kitchen, generous gathering area, and outdoor covered fireplace invite get-togethers with friends, family, and neighbors with a grand patio overlooking a section of Class-3 rapids on the French Broad River.
Wellness Facility and Pool
Located adjacent to the River Lodge, the Wellness Facility and Pool gives guests the opportunity to workout, recover, and relax. The very latest cardio machines and equipment are the perfect way to begin the day or get the heart pumping after an afternoon of fishing. The picturesque family pool is the perfect place to while away the day, affording incredible views of the river below and mountains in the distance.
Down by the Sandy Bottoms Rapid of the French Broad River sits some of the most precious North Carolina mountain real estate the entire region has to offer. It’s an ideal meeting place for small gatherings or family picnics. The French Broad River Park and Pavilion provides easy access to these waters, whether you’re trying your hand at fly fishing, kayaking, white-water rafting, or tubing.
This inviting amenity was constructed by skilled craftsmen—using local materials—to make a wonderful gathering place for those who appreciate peaceful mountain serenity. Hidden deep in The Bluffs, The Tree House offers an outdoor fireplace with plenty of covered and open space for residents and friends to congregate. Bring some steaks and your favorite beverage and enjoy a cookout with a great view.
More than anything else, what defines and distinguishes French Broad Crossing is its namesake river. North Carolina’s French Broad River is the third oldest on the planet, older than both the Nile and Amazon. For our homeowners, the river is more than a geographical marker or landscape feature, it’s central to French Broad Crossing’s unique way of life. The community’s River Lodge, as well as many property lots, overlooks this mesmerizing water source that supports a wide variety of fish—and a variety of water sports and activities.
