Heartwood Entrance Gate

Discover the peaceful beauty and serenity of Heartwood, a 330 acre mountain-top development with layered mountain views rising far above Watauga Lake bordering Tennessee and Boone, NC. Bordered by the pristine Cherokee National Forest, hiking distance from the Appalachian Trail, Heartwood is “home-base” to a lifetime of vacations.

Heartwood sits majestically on top of Mays Ridge with elevations from 2600 feet to 3400 feet offering breathtaking vistas throughout the year. At Heartwood you can retreat to a place with long range views of Watauga Lake and the Iron Mountain Range to the north and northeast. You can also experience beautiful sunsets and views of Grandfather, Beech, and Roan Mountain from lots with southern or western exposure. Heartwood is bordered by the Cherokee National Forest for over a mile on the northeast which guarantees these views forever.

Walk out your door for an afternoon hike on the Appalachian Trail, take the kids fishing on one of our five stocked trout ponds, or sit back, relax on your porch and enjoy the picturesque mountain scenery.
