Start a New Tradition with Your Family in the Beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina

Are your family’s holiday traditions as stale as last year’s Christmas cookies? Do you long for a holiday that is reminiscent of a classic Norman Rockwell painting? It’s no secret why the historic resort village of Cashiers and the town of Highlands in North Carolina have drawn families here for close to two hundred years. Between the crisp mountain air, fantastic views of nature’s splendor, wonderfully peaceful atmosphere and cornucopia of fun family-friendly activities and venues,  every year an entirely new collection of families make the choice to build new traditions together and make their home (or second home) on the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau. With a wide variety of home choices – easy maintenance condominiums overlooking a mystic waterfall, quaint cottages nestled in a grove of towering pines, estate-sized mountain retreats, and more – there’s something to fit every kind of family in Highlands, Cashiers and the neighboring towns of Glenville, Sapphire and Lake Toxaway.

There is no better time than now – during the holiday season – to start building some truly special family memories in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Aren’t you tired of hauling out the old artificial Christmas tree year after year? Imagine selecting and chopping down your own REAL Christmas tree, and filling your home with the heavenly aroma of fresh mountain pine. Picture yourself roasting marshmallows with your family before a roaring fire in the stunning stacked stone fireplace at the heart of your great room, framed with exposed heavy timber beams and filled with warmth. Allow yourself to dream of a White Christmas that might actually come true. Even if you’re not quite ready to “make the leap” to a permanent home, Western North Carolina is still a wonderful place to visit. From historic inns, to posh resorts, to amazing rental homes – we invite you to come experience the holidays in an entirely new way. Like something from a vintage picture postcard, the villages of Cashiers and Highlands are decorated for the holidays and the shops are filled with unique gifts for everyone on your list. The calendar of events for each community along the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau is jam-packed with fantastic holiday “happenings” to help spread the Christmas cheer and promote that wonderful feeling of community that sets us apart from other resorts.

Once you’ve made the decision to put down roots here, you’ll find something to love about every single season on the mountain. To begin the search for your family’s one-of-a-kind mountain retreat, the talented team at Silver Creek Real Estate Group is ready to help you. What better gift to give your family than an extraordinary legacy home that can be passed down and enjoyed from generation to generation? It will truly be the gift that keeps giving!
