Thanks to the stunning Long Covecommunity on Cedar Creek Lake, weekend getaways are no longer a trek. In a quick car ride, families can swim, play and relax with no hassle.
New custom homesites are available on the South Shore and Henderson Bay, which feature sizable lawns and dazzling bay and open water views. Additionally, Long Cove (longcovetx.com) is selling lakefront contemporary cottages, designed by John Boyd and Associates, that include three bedrooms, a bunk room, four and a half baths and spacious outdoor porches with lake views. Regardless of where one resides in Long Cove, all the amenities are a stroll away.
Take a short walk, or ride on a community bike, to the Bayside infinity pool, where residents can soon swim, grill or rest in cabanas while overlooking Henderson Bay. For an excursion, visit the Canoe house around the corner to retrieve canoes, kayaks, paddleboards, Fliteboards and more in the protected inlet.
In the South Shore neighborhood, Longcovians also have access to hiking and biking trails that connect to the rest of Long Cove’s amenities. For golfers, a nine-hole course and two-acre putting green await, while the pickleball, tennis and beach volleyball courts are a must for a friendly match. Families can even take advantage of a multi-purpose sports field, pool with a water slide, new amphitheater, three stocked fishing ponds and full-service marina with water valet service. After a fun-filled day of activities, residents might head home to watch the sunset over the water before stopping by the lakeside bonfire pits to make s’mores.
When Sunday morning rolls around, Longcovians do not have to worry about fixing up the house, boat, pool or yard. A concierge service handles all the chores, from house cleaning to maintenance, so leave with peace of mind that everything is ready for next weekend.
No matter the time of year, Long Cove provides a relaxing escape from city life without the stress of traveling far or caring for a second home alone.
“Longcovians escape to the lake all year long. Occupancy ranges from about 30% to a peak of 90% or so during Summer holiday weekends. Because we have 1,200 wooded acres and so many ways to play, there’s a nice balance of community socializing and getting lost in nature away from the city. There’s plenty to explore and discover at Long Cove,” says Carlton.
