Perched on top of High Rock Mountain, the clubhouse overlooks High Rock Lake with a breathtaking, panoramic, 100-mile view on a clear day.
When arriving under the covered entryway and then as you walk inside, you’ll notice the timber-frame architecture with exposed beams and wooden posts secured by large, wooden pegs. The floor-to-ceiling cathedral windows provide a cozy rustic feel that blends in perfectly with the mountain vibe of our community.
In the main room, there’s a large stone fireplace with enclosed seating where folks can sit and relax. Comfortable seating in the clubhouse is arranged for conversation. There’s a pool table that doubles perfectly as a buffet table for community and private events. A dining area is conveniently located next to the bar area and the adjoining full kitchen. A separate TV room with seating and counter space provides another space for gathering. The surrounding deck takes the fun outside where the views are spectacular, making it the perfect backdrop for those special occasion photos.
Community activities that regularly meet at the clubhouse include yoga (meets outside during nice weather), community mahjong, bridge, and book club. HOA committees also use the clubhouse for meetings.
To reserve the clubhouse, check the Events Calendar on our website to see if the clubhouse is available. If it is, contact Bill Conrad at (336) 250-1651 or email the Recreational Facilities Committee (RFC) to make sure there are no date conflicts. Next, download from our Document Downloads page: the appropriate application (one or three-day) and Clubhouse Rules and Standards. Once you have completed the forms, give them to Bill Conrad or a member of the RFC in person, or mail them to the RFC.
When the clubhouse is reserved for a private event, residents may still use the pool, hot tub, and tennis/pickleball courts; however, the clubhouse deck is considered part of the rental agreement and is not available for general use while the private event is in progress.
More clubhouse details are just a click away. Back in 2013, the newsletter published a document providing details of The Springs Clubhouse that was submitted by residents Dick Getz and Anne Croom.
Pool and Hot Tub
Our pool is located on the back side of the clubhouse. Changing rooms, showers, sun trellis, and extensive pool decking overlooking High Rock Lake make for an ideal way to spend the day.
To gain access to the pool and hot tub area you must have an electronic card, Proximity Card, to open the gate. Download Pool Access Proximity Card Rules and Application from the Document Downloads page of our website, complete the application, and return it via email to the Recreational Facilities Committee. Proximity cards are to be used by the cardholders and their immediate family members (property owners, their adult children, and parents with a LIMIT OF 4 GUESTS). All guests must be escorted by the property owner.
Hours of operation: Weather permitting, the pool and hot tub are open daily from 10 AM to sunset. Opening and closing dates of the pool and hot tub vary each season depending on the weather and will be posted in our newsletter.
Please check the Document Downloads page of our website for documents relating to the courts: Tennis/Pickle Ball Standards
Boat Storage and Piers
The launch area allows easy access for putting boats in and out of the water. It’s located off Healing Springs Drive.
The Springs provides a locked and enclosed, 2-acre, graveled boat storage facility. To store your watercraft and trailer in our storage area, you must register and get decals for them by downloading the Application for Boat/Watercraft/Trailer Decal form from the Document Downloads page of our website. Complete the application and return it as directed on the form.
Regulations for the use of the day slips can be found on the Document Downloads page of our website: Community Dock Regulations under “Piers.” The document covers watercraft decals as well as restrictions on glass containers, dogs, smoking, fires, smoking, explosives, fueling, swimming from the docks, vehicle/trailer parking, and much more.
Day-Slip Usage: All day-slip piers are available for use by members in good standing. Four of the eight common area slips at Docks 2 and 3 and all five common area slips at Dock 1 will not have overnight mooring privileges and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. The other four common area slips at Docks 2 and 3 will have overnight mooring privileges that will be allocated on an equitable basis to members in good standing requesting usage for up to 4 weeks if they are willing to accept the additional rules associated with overnight mooring.
Tranquility Lakes and Walking Trails
Tranquility Lakes has two large ponds, one with an aerator, and three smaller ponds. An asphalt walking trail circles through the woods, around the ponds and wetlands, and past a footbridge over the spillway. Fishing pods are available at the upper pond.
Cascade Creek Park is a beautiful, serene area of The Springs with two ponds, woods, a firepit, and a picnic area with a fireplace and gazebo. There is a walking path, but it is rather undefined. The path starts close to the picnic area, goes up the hill, around where the upper pond used to be, and meanders down the other side of the pond. Although the path is rather unbeaten, nature provides quite a show. There is a lovely assortment of plants near and in the water – some of which are native to North Carolina. There you can find pickerelweed with the big, heart-shaped leaf; a clump of rushes; some jewelweed; and some spreading dayflowers creeping around the pond’s edge to name a few. The evergreen bushes along the path include a rhododendron that bursts with blooms in the spring.
If you decide to take a stroll on the path or just along the road, there is a parking spot provided for your convenience.
