The towns of Cashiers and Highlands lie just south of Asheville, toward North Carolina’s border with Georgia and South Carolina. Nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, these hidden gems provide a wealth of options for sports, adventure, and vacations. Put the top down on your 718 Boxster and get ready to explore everything these two towns have to offer.
Cashiers, North Carolina, has less than 200 full-time residents but is a magnet for vacationers and those with a taste for adventure. Spend the day golfing at one of 16 area courses or hiking through the beautiful wilderness filled with waterfalls and lakes.
Need a place to stay? Check out the following two options:
The Innisfree Bed & Breakfast By-The-Lake was described by Southern Living as “One of the great romantic destinations.” Whether relaxing in front of the fireplace in the cozy parlor or enjoying the view during Hospitality Hour on the veranda, your stay will be one you never forget.
The Chandler Inn’s sign describes themselves as “Overnight Accommodations for Nice People,” and you would be hard-pressed to find nicer people anywhere. Each morning, the innkeeper enjoys coffee with the guests, and two nights a week there’s live music at the Hummingbird Inn. With only ten rooms, you are sure to make new friends during your stay.
Highlands is a popular respite for residents of both Asheville and Atlanta. This mountain town is located in the heart of the Nantahala National Forest, and home to the highest waterfall east of the Rocky Mountains, Whitewater Falls. Have you ever dreamed of driving your Porsche 911 beneath a waterfall? You can experience that at Bridal Veil Falls.
After a day of adventure, treat yourself to a meal at one of the area’s many excellent restaurants. The award-winning Wolfgang's Restaurant & Wine Bistro has been delighting residents and visitors for 23 years. Located on Main Street, Wolfgang’s is proud to serve many exotic dishes, including Venison Au Poivre — venison wrapped in applewood smoked bacon and served with Montrachet rosti potato and a lingonberry demi glace.
