A mere two hour drive from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia; Asheville, North Carolina; and Greenville, South Carolina is the idyllic mountain town known as Highlands, North Carolina. At a pristine elevation of over 4,000 feet, this quiet rustic mountain community is located at the southern tip of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is surrounded by national Forest. It straddles the Eastern Continental Divide and still seems to the first time visitor like just a few steps from Heaven’s door.
This picture perfect mountain oasis, so reminiscent of a Norman Rockwell painting, had its humble beginning back in 1875, when as legend has it, two Kansas developers drew intersecting lines on a map from New York to New Orleans and from Chicago to Savannah. They theorized that the point where these lines met would one day be a great trade center and the hub of commerce. Fortunately, they missed their calculations by approximately 120 miles (Atlanta Georgia) and this rich and fertile mountain village was able to develop as a health and summer resort town on the highest plateau of the Southern Appalachian Mountains in Western North Carolina. The year round population of the Highlands area is about 4,500, but the summertime temperatures draw visitors from around the southeast who come to enjoy the cool days and brisk mountain evenings.
Unlike most resort towns, the majority of our summer visitors are also homeowners and the town has created a community of concerned citizens and cultural organizations with many diverse activities. This community atmosphere makes for an ideal relocation to Highlands. Within the four blocks of Main Street and adjacent streets that make up the center of town, Highlands is a delightful blend of country and city cultures. Rarely is it possible for such a small town to offer the array of services found in Highlands. Medical needs are met with a full-service hospital and a staff of general practitioners and specialists.
The cultural amenities include professional theatre, chamber music concerts, cabarets, art exhibits, galleries, a fine art center and other special events. A variety of educational classes and informative seminars are also available. Highlands gives you a range of choices and somehow manages to nurture your spirit at the same time.
For those who possess a more adventuresome spirit, nature is always calling and beckons you to spend time away from the harried cares of your world. Take a long walk or an invigorating hike to a nearby waterfall; go mountain biking or stroll the sidewalks of Main Street. There is championship golf, tennis, swimming, fly-fishing, boating, kayaking, canoeing, and even whitewater rafting in the rivers nearby. Spring, summer, fall and winter each of the seasons offers its own unique set of outdoor adventures that attract residents and visitors alike to revel in the magnificent splendors of the mountains.
Named for the river that meanders through the golf course, Cullasaja is the Cherokee word for”sweet water”. Indeed, the setting here is straight out of a fairy tale, particularly in the Fall as densely wooded areas become a canvas of orange, red and gold.
However, it’s the golf course that brings people to Cullasaja Club, and the designer’s signature is one of the best: Arnold Palmer. Palmer’s objective was achieved in a course that is not only visually appealing and memorable, but highly playable with generous sized fairways, and difficult, but not impossible greens.
There is also a 26-acre lake, which comes into play on the 184 yard 14th hole. But the splash of golf balls isn’t the only activity on the lake. You can play 18 in the morning, then paddle out on Lake Ravenel in a canoe in the afternoon to do some fishing.
At the hub of member activity is the clubhouse, a striking 14,000 square foot facility that overlooks the ninth green. The clubhouse is home to the pro shop, dining room, grill, and men’s and ladies’ locker rooms. The adjacent swim and tennis center offers a brand new fitness facility; heated, Olympic style swimming pool; kiddy pool; and lighted tennis courts.
An active homeowner’s association provides year round manned gatehouse security plus an aggressive architectural control committee. Although, primarily a single family community, there are also Lake Villas fronting Lake Ravenel where you can fish from your deck, Fairway Cottages along the 10th hole and Overlook Villas that afford stunning views of Whiteside Mountain and the forested valley that seemingly goes on forever. Homes and villas start in the mid $500’s and top out about three million dollars
