Black Forest Real Estate on Lake James
Black Forest is a waterfront community in Marion, NC that’s right on Lake James. This neighborhood also happens to be packed with stunning mountain views and surrounded by trees, making it your very own nature escape. Lake James is one of the largest lakes in Western North Carolina, stretching between Marion and Morganton, NC. Lake James is over 10 square miles and 150 miles of shoreline, with magnificent mountain views, including an incredible view of Shortoff Mountain.
Situated along the western edge of the lake, Black Forest is not only convenient to the town of Marion, NC but a few other places too. On one side of the neighborhood is the North Fork of the Catawba River, and on the other is the Black Bear Cove section of Lake James. Black Bear Cove is the large cove that starts just west of Big Island and continues to the western end of the lake at the mouth of the Catawba River.
Black Forest is a gated community on Lake James, and inside the gate are hiking trails and some of the most beautiful lakefront lots in the area. Many of these properties for sale already have a dock installed. Homes for sale in Black Forest are high-end log cabins and post-and-beam retreats, ideal for a year-round home or a long weekend getaway.
