Go Take a Hike on the Trails at Sterling on the Lake

August 16, 2021

Tell a Harcrest Homes homebuyer in Sterling on the Lake to take a hike, and they’ll face a tough choice. The Flowery Branch community that’s famous for resort-style amenities and lakeside living is also known for the miles of trails that meander throughout.

Whether going for a serious hike, a bike ride, or a leisurely stroll, Sterling on the Lake residents find a network of paved, gravel and dirt trails right in their own community. Some paths lead deep into the preserved woodlands. Others connect the community’s parks, recreation areas, and neighborhoods. One community favorite offers a stroll along the lakeshore, even providing a bench or two along the way to rest, watch boaters, and soak in the peaceful atmosphere.

Two trails lead to Sterling on the Lake’s hidden gems. The first meanders along a cool mountain stream to the location of a secret waterfall. The other leads families a little off the beaten path to every kid’s dream – a large custom treehouse built into the branches of towering trees! This dreamhouse is so impressive and unusual, it was even featured on Nickelodeon children’s show!

The treehouse is one of four children’s playgrounds in the community, each accessible through the network of trails and pathways. Trails connect places for adults to play, too, including the Village Green and Village Park. The Village Green is the site of the Summer Concert Series, Fall Festival, Fourth of July fireworks, and local theater productions. The four-and-a-half-acre Village Park features a community firepit for making s’mores, a wooden swing for relaxing, and plenty of open space for cloud-watching or stargazing.

Of course, the paved pathways also bring residents to the Lakeside Clubhouse, where they can take advantage of the 24-hour fitness center, the 27-seat movie theater, or the large party rooms. Tennis courts, some also lined for pickle ball, and bocce courts are connected, too.

community pools and clubhouse

And let’s not forget the pools. The paths lead to the community’s four pools, including the two located at the Clubhouse. One is a zero-entry pool with two-story waterslide and splash area. When the laughs are too loud and the activity too frenzied there, a visit to the other Clubhouse pool relaxes with a soothing waterfall.

The amenities and trails are just two reasons Harcrest Homes chooses to build in Sterling on the Lake. The Flowery Branch location, the benefits of lakeside living, and the opportunity to build homebuyers’ dream homes in beautiful natural surroundings top the list as well.
