Gateway Mountain is a private, gated community with stunning ridge-top vistas located just 15 minutes from Black Mountain and 25 miles east of Asheville in the town of Old Fort. The mountain community contains about 3,000 acres of hardwood forest and is designated as a nature preserve and wildlife sanctuary. Prized for its scenery and seclusion, one of the best features for many who stay within this community is the private mountain lake known as Lake George.
Exclusively reserved for Gateway Mountain residents and guests, it’s an excellent location for swimming, fishing, and canoeing. While all homes in the community have quick access to the lake, there are a couple of homes (including Luna’s Landing and Serenity Lake Cabin) that are located directly on the lake and offer private dock access and supply tubes and/or a canoe.
In addition to this lake, the development offers an additional lake, waterfall access, a trout pond, and numerous hiking trails...bringing many of the attractive natural features of visiting western North Carolina right inside its gates.
