River Lodge & Islands

The hub of Mystic Lands: a masterpiece of rustic craftsmanship and charm on the banks of the Nantahala along with two private islands and a pavilion with an open air fireplace.

River Park

An ideal place for families to enjoy and access the river, to walk a trail, fly fish, or just stare at the water in solitude.

Celestial Observatory

Set high on the mountain in Mystic Ridge, Land of the Sky, this state-of-the-art, rotating dome astronomical observatory brings the star-filled sky closer to you than ever before.

Equestrian Center

At Mystic Forest, the Equestrian Center offers a fully equipped stable, a level, rail-enclosed grass-surface riding area, paddocks, and access to trails, including the head of the Vanishing Stream Trail.

Pond & Pavilion

The Mystic Forest communal center with a fish-stocked pond and a pavilion to enjoy a leisurely cookout, near the head of the Forest Bound Trail.

Canoe Club

At Mystic Ridge, a club/boathouse by the still waters of Queens Lake. Store your kayak or canoe there, or use one of the Association's.

Queens Lake

Ideally located between our Mystic Forest and Mystic Ridge neighborhoods, this nearly private scenic freshwater mountain lake is perfect for fishing, swimming, and canoeing.
