In 2019, Long Cove homeowner Karen Northcutt inspired us all with tales of her 11-day trek to Everest Base Camp. A longtime hiker, she completed the 80-mile trek to raise funds for Clean Water Climbs, which repairs water wells in Malawi. Suffice to say, even the craziness of the past year couldn’t keep this Longcovian from crushing goals. Except this time, she’s flexing her skills on the golf course.
Given Mother Nature’s recent visit, sunny days by the pool may seem far away. But we promise they’ll be here before you know it.
Summer is on the horizon and Long Cove is continuing to grow. Last month, we announced our newest addition: a new lakeside infinity pool at Henderson Bay. Construction on the new pool is underway and we know it will be an amenity everyone will enjoy.
No one will dispute that 2020 brought many challenges, but a lot of great things still happened around Long Cove. I want to tell you how much we appreciate your resilience and patience while we managed new health and safety procedures. Although some events had to be shelved, we wrapped up summer with the opening of Henderson Bay Amphitheater and a blowout performance from Pat Green on Labor Way Weekend.
This year has been a rollercoaster. Full of challenges, and sadly for many, loss. Social distancing, quarantines, virtual work, and school… A year ago, who could have imagined how different daily life would now look?
Ahh, fall porch weather! While summers on Cedar Creek Lake are hard to beat, this time of year is truly something special. Fall is a calm, beautiful time to be at Long Cove. And what’s not to love about sweater weather, pumpkin-spice everything, and 1,200 acres of room to roam?
Architect and interior designer John Boyd of John Boyd & Associates has been at Long Cove since the early days working with the development team. John specializes in designing luxury second homes and has an innate sense of what features in a home make it right for families, fun, and entertaining. John is at the top of Long Cove’s A-list architects and his repertoire is surprisingly broad, from Low Country Cottages to Modern Farmhouses to Contemporary. He’s also the man behind several landmark Long Cove buildings, such as the Henderson Bay Townhomes, Toy Barn, and Lake Club. We caught up with John to chat about his legacy at Long Cove, second-home trends, and lake house designs.

Longcovians have been taking each day as it comes during the pandemic. We all seem to be juggling new schedules and wearing many hats – like teacher, short order cook, and professional dog walker. We caught up with a few Long Cove families to chat about their experiences and life lessons so far.
Dear Long Cove Homeowners,
It’s hard to believe it’s been eight months since I came on board as President of Long Cove Realty. We’ve been hard at work preparing for another fun-filled year at the lake—and the months have flown by. As we count down the days to summer, I want to share a few exciting updates.
Longcovians are a special bunch and we love nothing more than getting to know families in the community. We caught up with a few Long Cove families to chat about life on (and off) the lake, how they named and designed their lake home, and more. Enjoy getting to know your neighbors and be sure to say hello next time you see them out and about.
It goes without saying that Longcovians are an impressive bunch. From creatives to philanthropists and CEOs, the Long Cove community is full of interesting personalities with a wide range of talents.
The very definition of #goals, Karen Northcutt is the latest homeowner inspiring us to get out and do something spectacular. She’s fresh off an 11-day trek to Everest Base Camp, which Long Cove proudly helped to sponsor. And while she says she still hasn’t processed the magnitude of her accomplishment, she’s happy to be back at the lake, recuperating and reflecting on the experience.
Happy October, y’all! We hope you’re cozying up to this cooler weather.
Though the summer season has wound down, real estate sales remain steady. The first Harbor Front Townhomes in Henderson Bay have sold out and we’re officially breaking ground on October 21, although dirt’s already flyin’.
