The whisper of a cool mountain breeze greets you on your arrival to Mountain Air, one of the rare North Carolina mountain communities positioned at over 4,500 feet.  In the distance, the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains, casting azure and indigo shadows, paint an inspiring view as they stretch across the horizon.  Tucked away on Slickrock and Austin Mountains, the treasured fly in community is only four miles from historic Burnsville and less than 30 minutes north of one of America's best college towns, Asheville. Mountain Air is known as one of the country’s premier fly in communities near the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is also known for thrilling mountaintop golf.

Over 20 years ago, Mountain Air was established as a self-contained, self-reliant community with a wealth of year round amenities within the gates. The gated community exudes a warm, welcoming ambiance. Careful development of the land with preservation of hardwoods and thoughtful integration are at the heart of this 1,300 acre development soaring from 3,400 to over 4,919 feet in elevation. A variety of Mountain Air home styles can be found, from mountain villas, golf course homes, rustic mountain homes and low maintenance condominiums with heavenly views that make up this serene family-friendly community. Temperatures in the heat of the summer average a mild 75 degrees.

There is no membership fee for HOA. However, country club is too high for the area. We no longer have a developer however I think the community teams are doing a great job and are very charitable.
