December’s Calendar of Events is brought to you by Silver Creek Real Estate Group of Cashiers, NC.

As 2009 draws to a close and we gather together with friends and family in celebration of another joyous holiday season, the mountains of Western North Carolina are a magical place to be.  With the scent of pine hanging heavily in the cool air, and the occasional light dusting of snow on the mountaintop – this is a wonderful time to introduce your family to all of the Southern tradition and charm that the historic resort villages of Highlands and Cashiers has to offer.  The folks at Silver Creek Real Estate Group wish you and your family a very Merry Holiday Season and a Happy New Year, and – if we don’t see you up on the mountain this December for any one of the wonderful events listed below – we hope to see you 2010!
