About The Area

Nestled in the Western North Carolina mountains are the small towns of Highlands and Cashiers. First founded at the turn of the century, the area became known for its clean air and cooler summer temperatures. Affluent families from the Northeast, including the Vanderbilt’s, flocked to the area in awe of its natural surroundings.

Today, the same tradition rings true. Whether visitors are drawn to the beauty of the Nantahala National Forest, waterfalls, and hiking trails…or just a reprieve from the summer heat, our Plateau makes the ideal setting for a first, second, or third home.

At Mountain Life Properties of Landmark Realty Group, we believe that an integral part of selling your home or purchasing a new one includes explaining and highlighting the lifestyle surrounding us. Dining, shopping, hiking, boating, golfing and waterfall gazing are all some of the many reasons why many find the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau so desirable as a mountain retreat.
