Burnsville NC 28714

Community Description

Sitting atop Slickrock Mountain at an elevation of nearly 5,000 feet, the private country club community of Mountain Air is a world unto itself. Wrapped in the embrace of the Blue Ridge Mountains and endowed with luxurious amenities like a private 2,875-foot runway adjacent to the clubhouse, the exceptionality of Mountain Air is evident in every way. Boasting the reputation as a former winner of the “Gold Award for Best Community in America”, Mountain Air has set a high bar for private community living for the past 30 years. 


While Mountain Air may be more remote than other private communities in Western North Carolina, it is by no means isolated. The mountain town of Burnsville is a short 10-minute drive from the community’s gates and features a variety of charming attractions including a traditional brick town square, restaurants and boutique shopping, and many historic sites. The largest collection of quilt blocks in the United States can be found here displayed on beautiful barns, churches and local businesses as part of the Quilt Trail System. Burnsville offers many options for shopping for necessities too, and Asheville’s many offerings are just a 30-minute drive down the road, with excellent medical care located at Mission Hospital in Asheville. The Asheville Regional Airport is located 1 hour away for those who do not wish to use Mountain Air’s private jetway. The beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway and its miles of skyline driving sit just outside the bounds of Mountain Air, ready for residents and guests looking for adventure. 


The suite of amenities that can be found at Mountain Air is incomparable to any other. While luxury is of high value here, members also remark that the community maintains an easygoing and unpretentious energy, making it easy for residents and guests to relax in a stunning setting. The community’s center is their Club Village, featuring farm-to-table dining in 3 dining rooms and ample space for shared gatherings in the lounge. Mountain Air’s golf course has been intentionally crafted to complement its lush natural mountaintop setting, and has been described as “one of the most dramatic and naturally conceived courses in the country.” If tennis and fitness are more your wheelhouse, you will love the beautifully maintained tennis courts and state-of-the-art fitness center offering a heated pool, a trained staff, classes, and activities. Nature is highly regarded at Mountain Air, and the community offers amenities to reflect this value. Their on-site naturalist is available to guide adults and children as they explore the six community parks and their network of trails throughout the community. Family and children’s programming is also offered throughout the year. This programming combined with the Slickrock Cinema and game room, organic community garden, and Mountain Market & Deli means families will never encounter a boring day at Mountain Air.
