Black Forest Real Estate

One of the most sought after neighborhoods within Lake James, Black Forest is located on the Northwest end of the lake, approximately 10 miles from Marion. As its name suggests, the densely-wooded setting containing large old-growth trees has helped make this community a certified member of the Audubon International Gold Signature Sanctuary Program. Keeping with the rugged woodland setting, the architectural style of the buildings and homes here are rendered solely in the Adirondack style, where native building materials like wood and stone are used to pull in the colors and textures from the natural landscape that surrounds them. 

Residents here benefit from a variety of recreational amenities including miles of walking trails, a Lake Camp with community boat slips for interior lots, a community pavilion with stone fireplace and fire pit, a River Camp with a tree house, a canoe and kayak launch, and a storage facility. There’s also no need to worry about keeping the grounds in mint condition, as a full-time caretaker helps maintain the rustic beauty of the common areas for you to enjoy at your leisure.  This neighborhood offers unrivaled beauty and up to 20 acres per home site.
