Private lake, waterfalls and pasture.

Ravenwild 177 acres with private lake

Ravenwild 177 acres with private lake, once in a life time opportunity to own a tranquil refuge nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains. This 177 acre mountain estate is comprised of its own private 3 acre lake, multiple waterfalls, streams and reflections ponds. Located only 15 mins from Brevard yet a secluded paradise of mature hardwood forest, pasture and waterfalls. The park like setting creates the perfect environment for a simpler life and will allow you and your loved ones a place to relax and reconnect to nature.

Once the sole domain of savvy locals, this roadside stream has become one of the region’s most popular Delayed Harvest waters. The state stocks 17,735 trout along 4.75 miles of East Fork Road between Glady Fork Road and the main stem of the French Broad. Catch-and-release regulations apply from October to May, and only single-hook artificial lures are allowed. All of the land along the East Fork is private, so please respect posted signs. There are three cascades along the East Fork, dumping into frothy holes brimming with stocked rainbow, brown and brook trout. These fish see a lot of flies, however, and can be snooty at times. If downsizing your tippet and fly sizes don’t work, walk up the road and try a different spot.
