Welcome to Sunalei Preserve:

Look Up to Us

There’s clarity at 5,500 feet. Above the clouds. Above the frenzy of the day-to-day world. When the sky is clear up here you can see for 100 miles, to the tops of Grandfather Mountain, Mount Mitchell, even peaks in Tennessee and Virginia. That’s liberating. It clears the mind and expands the soul. Evaporating the clutter, noise, and excess. What you’re left with is a hawk-like clarity that brings you closer to your family, yourself, and what really matters most.

Forever Wild, Endlessly Rewarding

Sunalei stands alone. In fact, no other Western North Carolina community stands taller. With a peak that exceeds 5,500 feet, we offer the highest elevation homesites east of the Mississippi.

While the views here are endlessly extended, the proximity to adventure, entertainment and dining, is close by, at your beck and call. The bustling, high-energy college town of Boone is less than 15 minutes away—and the picturesque Elk Knob State Park intersects our community and offers boundless outdoor recreation. And onsite, we provide a number of rustically elegant amenities that enhance the “forever wild” living experience while preserving the natural beauty that makes Sunalei without peer.
