Hot Springs, North Carolina: A national (and natural) treasure just down the road

Both of our Western North Carolina properties—French Broad Crossing and The Preserve at Little Pine—offer families an abundant natural living experience, inside the gates and out. With a number of amenities and activities for every age and interest, our communities deliver the perfect balance of natural serenity and outdoor adventure, all just 30 minutes from the dining, shopping, and entertainment of Asheville, North Carolina. Even closer, is the resort town of Hot Springs, recently featured in AVL Today.

   “I looked at a lot of mountain communities in Western North Carolina and French Broad Crossing really won me over because of the gorgeous river setting and its proximity to Asheville, Hot Springs, and Marshall. It’s perfect—access to both nature and culture,” says George Engle, French Broad Crossing Homeowner.

  Natural Hot Springs:

Close to Asheville and Preserve Communities

Hot Springs (originally called Warm Springs) has been an enchanting natural escape for more than 200 years, attracting travelers to its rejuvenative warm mineral springs. The springs are heated to 100° thanks to a volcanic fault line underground. The all-natural hot springs are free of man-made chemicals, and a great source of sulfate of magnesia (for muscles), sulphate of potassium (for your heart), and chloride of potassium (for the nervous system).

 Of course, the town of Hot Springs has a lot more to offer than healing waters. It is also the only town that sits directly on the Appalachian trail: it runs along Main Street. It becomes quite active with through-hikers, especially in the spring. There are also a number of quaint restaurants, inns, cafes, coffee houses, and friendly faces in this charming mountain town, once voted the “Best Small Mountain Town from Georgia to West Virginia.”
