Welcome to High Cove!
High Cove is an unusual intentional community in the mountains of western North Carolina, with a focus on the arts, environment, and lifelong learning. We’re located on 96 acres in Mitchell County, near the towns of Burnsville and Spruce Pine, and the Penland School of Craft. Much of the forested land is preserved for conservation. There are two small neighborhoods now, and a mixed-use village center is planned.
