Connestee Falls Amenities

Few places offer so many natural wonders and recreational amenities.

"Connestee Falls feels like a private club community inside a state park. It's a place of friendly people and breathtaking beauty featuring signature waterfalls, mountain lakes, championship golf, a grand clubhouse with dining, extensive hiking trails, pool, tennis and pickleball courts, bocce, a wellness center and a wide variety of resident clubs". -

Waterfalls and Hiking Trails

"Few private communities, or public parks for that matter, can rival the hiking trails at Connestee Falls. Over 14 miles of private hiking trails are maintained by volunteer trail stewards. They range from easy to strenuous and wind through and around the community’s many nature areas offering views of creeks, waterfalls, lakes and mountain vistas.

The trail system is extensive and quite elaborately planned and maintained including parking areas at main trailheads. An online guide to Connestee Falls' Trails includes interactive maps, videos, photos and tips on hiking. We believe it’s one of the best private trails systems in the country.

And that’s just within the gates.  Transylvania County offers 81 hiking trails.  In fact, there are hundreds of miles of trails throughout the region to discover and explore when you visit at Connestee Falls. -

"Connestee Falls offers that opportunity four times over with one of the most impressive private lake systems in Western North Carolina.
A few facts about the lakes:

  • Lake Atagahi
    80 Acres • 59' Deep • 2890' Above Sea Level

  • Lake Ticoa
    75 Acres • 92' Deep • 2810' Above Sea Level

    31 Acres • 32' Deep • 2950' Above Sea Level

  • Lake Wanteska
    45 Acres • 62' Deep • 2440' Above Sea Level

The watersheds for all four lakes are completely within the community boundaries allowing complete control over our lake water quality. One look and it's clear to see they are pristine.

A stocking program ensures there are plenty of fish for healthy aquatics and to please resident fishing enthusiasts. All lakes have boat-launching ramps and three offer storage areas for small boats. Gasoline powered watercraft are not allowed in the lakes to ensure their water quality and the quiet environment that surrounds them".-
