Smoke Rise in Kinnelon New Jersey is most likely the first gated community in USA. There are two entrances and private security personnel regularly patrol the area. New York City is around forty miles east and there is easy access to many of the largest airports or rail stations in the country.
On one hand, Smoke Rise in Kinnelon NJ is a nature preserve for roughly 900 homes on over 2,500 acres in north central New Jersey. Its natural beauty is seldom matched by any development anywhere. Experts catalogued more than 170 types of birds including owls, over 300 species of plants and 40 of animals. This makes the area ideal for leisurely walking with pet dogs or enjoying nature's beauty.
On the other hand it is a sportsman's paradise and a wholesome community. Sports activities include youth swim and sailing clubs, competitive equestrian riding, tennis which boasts nationally ranked amateur players, beach volley ball along with pickleball. Fishing is year round and platform tennis in the winter makes sure there is no reason to stay in. Smoke Rise has organized runners clubs, golf, ski groups and even baseball, soccer or lacrosse fields for kids to train on.
Smoke Rise Lake is the crown jewel of the community for sailing, summer picnics, outdoor concerts and cook outs. The lake is stocked with NJ indigenous species of fish every year so fishing becomes a natural way for residents to bond over summer activities.
Not to be left out is Hoot Owl Pond. While also stocked with fish, it is at its best in winter as an ice skating pond for skating or ice hockey. This is truly a Currier and Ives moment, if you are familiar with American art, to enjoy crisp winter evenings skating under lights and keeping warm in the skating hut.
The Smoke Rise Inn Resturant is open for lunch and dinner plus fully catered banquets, weddings or special occasions. For all other times, there is a neighborhood sports bar for meeting and greeting neighbors.
Many residents work in the City or in large NJ corporations. However the majority, based on experience, are entrepreneurial business owners or professionals.
