Renter & Visitor Information

This is your resource for valuable information when staying on our mountain. Please become familiar with the community rules and regulations, safety information to enhance your stay and other valuable insights about our neighborhood. Agents & investors can view unrestricted HOA docs at the bottom of the page.


Please be advised that the entirety of McDowell County has been placed under a complete burn ban , effective 11/05/23 at 5pm due to severe drought conditions. 


All burning permits have been cancelled until further notice. 


In addition, the McDowell County Fire Marshal's Office has requested that any fires be reported to 911. 


This is a serious situation. In the past there have been very large fines assessed to responsible parties for fire response, some including extensive helicopter dousing to contain and put out fires.

It is also suggested that if you are not already on the app, you join or and use the local ZIP code 28752 in order to receive important emergency management notices like the one that I received that prompted this email.

Rules & Regulations

  • Quiet time in the entire subdivision is 10:00 PM to 8:00 AM.  Sounds project louder and farther on the mountainsides, so care should be taken when having conversations outdoors at any time.

  • All garbage shall be packed in kitchen-size (13 gallon) bags ONLY and placed inside the dumpster. Trash bags must never be placed outside the dumpsters. Limit is two kitchen-sized trash bags per week per house. Dumpster capacity is very limited. Not all rental agencies require trash take out, so please be familiar with the terms of your specific rental. Additional waste & recycling can be taken to: Woodlawn Convenience Center (200 American Thread Rd, Marion 28752) Mon., Wed. & Fri. from 6:30 am - 6:30 pm.

  • There is no smoking allowed near the mail house, dumpster or in any wooded areas.

  • Abide by the road rules: no speeding. The subdivision speed limit is 20 mph.

  • Traffic going downhill must yield to traffic coming uphill. I.e., both drivers are expected to slow down and pull off the road as much as possible; however the driver going downhill should position themselves and stop if necessary so that the uphill driver does not have to stop.

  • Any heavily loaded vehicles or those with more than two axles must use the concrete ford, not the bridge.

  • The HOA will arrange for snow/ice removal at its discretion. Homeowners, guests, and tenants assume full responsibility for any and all damage and accidents, which may occur due to/during inclement weather.

  • Owners, renters, and guests are to control their pets so they will not be a nuisance to others.

  • No feeding of wildlife mammals for any reason. All pet food should be kept secured from access to wildlife at all times and trash kept locked indoors.

  • No hunting is allowed within the property limits of the Association.

  • Any fireworks, outside burning (wood, yard waste, etc.), or wood-burning fire pits are strictly prohibited on any property unless first approved by the board and with a permit to burn acquired through the Ashford-North Cove Fire Department or online at Any burning must be under the direct supervision of the owners at all times. Gas outdoor fires in a contained, manufactured device approved for such use is permitted. Suitable fire suppression equipment (such as shovels, water hoses, large-fire fire extinguishers, etc.) must be present and ready for use. The risk of fire on the mountain is very high; safety is the number one priority.


Bear Safety

Part of the beauty of our community is the natural landscape and opportunities to view wildlife. And we've got a lot of bears on our mountain! Please be conscious not to leave human or animal food, wrappers and food utensils outdoors or behind unlocked doors. Please heed the following guidelines for around the house and when having fun outdoors.

Fire Safety

Being fire-conscious while staying in the mountains is just common sense. Extra care must be taken to avoid a fire situation that can easily get out of hand with the amount of dry debris you find all over the mountain. 

  • Familiarize yourself with the locations of fire extinguishers on your property.

  • If you are aware of a fire on the mountain, please call 9-1-1 immediately and begin to exit, while notifying neighbors as you go.

  • Bonfires are prohibited within our community and other means of outdoor fires must be approved by the board prior to ignition.
