About Your HOA

Management Services

Coventry Group is responsible for financial administration for the Association and for the administration and maintenance of the common areas and facilities of the community.

Homeowner Assessment Fees

Apple Mountain Lake’s fiscal year is November 1st to October 31st. The annual assessment fee for the Association is $600.00/year per lot. Coupon books are sent at the beginning of the fiscal year with dues owed the last day of each month. The monthly payment is $50.00. You may pay your dues in full rather than monthly. An annual insurance assessment of $14.00 is assessed to each homeowner and is due by November 30th.

There are several flexible payment options including automatic withdrawal from your checking account, credit card payments and paying by check. These are all available at the “Pay Your Dues” tab. If you are in arrears, you can set up a different payment plan that works best with your finances. Please call Coventry Group’s office to discuss your options.

Please send all payments to:

Apple Mountain Lake POA
c/o Coventry Group Property Management
P.O. Box 2580  Winchester, VA 22604

Payments not received by the due date will be subject to finance charges and enforcement procedures of the Association which can include placing a lien on the home or seeking a personal judgment for the amount owed.

Home Modifications

Certain changes to the exterior of your home or lot must be approved in advance by the association board.  Apple Mountain Lake’s Architectural Request Form can be obtained here. Homeowners are advised to submit applications well in advance of any planned improvements in order to allow adequate time for review. Beginning modifications before receiving written approval may result in fines from your association.  Please refer to you governing documents for information regarding alterations and improvements including lot clearing and driveways.

Trash Pick Up and Recycling

Trash removal and recycling is the responsibility of each homeowner.  The local trash dumping station and recycling center is located on Dismal Hollow Road, across from the Park & Ride lot approximately 3/4 mile west of the intersection of Dismal Hollow Rd and Route 55.

Lawn Care, Landscaping & General Maintenance

General Maintenance of the shoulders and common areas is provided by John Brodnax and by Brian Marshall as well as volunteers by way of the Buildings and Grounds Committee. All homeowners are responsible for maintaining their own yards including landscaping adjacent to the roadway. Property owners with driveway culverts are responsible maintaining those culverts in working order. If you have any concerns about service, or need assistance, please contact your Community manager.
