Lonesome Valley Developers Partner with Cashiers’ Silver Creek Real Estate Group

Just below a swath of blue skies and billowy white clouds lies a very special valley in Western North Carolina – a spot many claim to be the place where Heaven and Earth meet. E.H. Jennings first discovered it in the late 1800s. The Pittsburgh entrepreneur was so awed by the beauty of the region that he purchased 30,000 acres to develop unique vacation destinations for families, with 800 acres reserved for use solely by his own family and friends. This land became known as Lonesome Valley and has been enjoyed by descendants of Mr. Jennings for over a century. Gracefully spanning the valley floor of the largest box canyon east of the Rockies, Lonesome Valley has long drawn the attention of visitors, with its striking walls of granite, rolling green pastures, lush forest and bountiful gardens. Wishing to maintain their great-grandfather’s original vision, a new generation of Jennings has taken special care to develop the land themselves with conservation as a major focus.

Cow Rock at Lonesome ValleyWith Mother Nature as the starring attraction, the canyon serves as a backdrop for a truly unique family-centric community, where all homes and amenities are designed to be in harmony with the scenery that envelopes them. Lonesome Valley’s Long Lake offers five acres of pristine waters, occasionally stirred by a passing canoe, kayak, swimmer or skipping stone. The Lakeside Pavilion serves as the social center of the community with a grill and fitness center. Fully stocked with Rainbow Trout, the Trout Pond is the ideal escape for the fly fisherman; for avid kite fliers, the Great Meadow offers lots of room to enjoy a picnic lunch among the wildflowers as your kite takes flight. There are 12 miles of scenic community hiking trails, rock climbing up the 1,000-foot face of Cow Rock and so much more.  Perhaps creating the most buzz in the three years since Lonesome Valley’s inception is the wildly popular, seasonal Canyon Kitchen, featuring the remarkable culinary talents of Chef John Fleer. A meal at Chef Fleer’s table is so much more than a fine dinner out – it’s a full sensory experience you won’t soon forget.
