No Need to “Climb Every Mountain” –
At elevations stretching 3,000 to over 5,000 feet above sea level and breathtaking vistas as far as the eye can see, the mountains of Western North Carolina are the stuff of legend. For hundreds of years, families from Georgia, Florida, the coastal Carolinas and beyond have sought refuge from the heat during the summer months and a picturesque change of seasons during the fall and winter months in the hills and valleys of the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau.
A land as rich in history as it is in natural beauty, the historic villages of Cashiers and Highlands are renowned resort destinations featuring distinctive communities, fine dining, eclectic shopping and a major emphasis on the arts and culture. Many communities in Cashiers and Highlands are highly sought-after – as word of this incredible slice of Heaven spreads. Must-see neighborhoods in Cashiers – from low-maintenance condominiums offering a wide variety of amenities, to quaint cottages tucked inside an ancient forest, to grand estates overlooking the mountain range – include: Arrowhead, Big Sheepcliff, Cedar Creek, Chattooga Club, Chattooga Ridge, Chinquapin, Cullasaja Club, High Hampton, High Hampton Inn & Country Club, High Meadows, Little Terrapin, Lonesome Valley, Mountaintop Lake & Golf Club, Pinchot, Sheepcliff Crossing & Sheepcliff Woods, Spring Forest, Wade Hampton Golf Club and Wildcat Cliffs Country Club. Highlands features the following luxury gated communities: Highlands Country Club, Highland Falls Country Club, Lake Osseroga, Lake Sequoyah and Old Edwards Club at Highlands Cove.
The nearby town of Sapphire offers the sprawling vacation destination of Wyndham Resort at Fairfield’s Sapphire Valley. The resort’s guests and nearby residents are afforded access to its many acclaimed amenities: the 50-acre Sapphire Lake, the 18-hole PGA Sapphire National Golf Course, 9-hole golf course, one indoor and two outdoor swimming pools, ten tennis courts, health club with state-of-the-art fitness equipment, boating and fishing on the lake, horseback riding, game room, massage services, miniature golf and more.

If you’re having trouble deciding whether to build or buy your dream home high atop a mountain or beside the peaceful waters of a beautiful lake – look no further. Western North Carolina’s Lake Toxaway and Lake Glenville offer you both options in one. After spending an unforgettable day on the lake, you and your family can watch the sun set over the mountains in the distance. You won’t want to miss Lake Toxaway’s Bear Wallow Springs, Catatoga, Lake Toxaway Estates or Toxaway Views. Lake Glenville offers future residents plenty of remarkable options with its Bear Lake Reserve, Big Ridge, Bridge Creek, Buck Knob Island, Buck Knob Landing, Cullowhee Forest, Glen Laurel, Glenshore, Sims Valley, Stonebridge, Stone Point, Summer Cove, Summer Hill and Trillium.
