Nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, Cashiers (pronounced "Cash-ers") has attracted residents and vacationers to its lush and cool mountain terrain since the early 1800s. Boasting thousands of acres of beautiful forests, cascading waterfalls, shadowy mountain peaks, and quiet lakes, this resort town and its surrounding areas house roughly 6,000 permanent residents, and draws an additional 15,000 to 20,000 seasonal visitors each year.
Cashiers is located on the Highlands-Cashiers Plateau at an elevation of 3,487 ft. It is surrounded by several mountain retreat communities, including Sapphire, Lake Glenville, Toxaway, and Highlands, and features many incredible natural elements, including the headwaters of the Chattooga River, Panthertown Valley (the Yosemite of the East), and Nantahala National Forest. Both permanent and seasonal residents recognize Cashiers as a peaceful and caring community offering escape, serenity, and charm.
The village of Cashiers offers an array of fine restaurants, shopping, and other activities for people of all ages from horseback riding and hiking to biking and boating. There are also numerous first-class golf courses throughout the area and an abundance of cultural opportunities at local playhouses, art and music venues, including the Highlands Playhouse, Bascom, Brevard Music Center, and Western Carolina University. Cashiers’ strong sense of community is well supported with many churches and service organizations as well as gathering centers such as an excellent public library, a new recreation center, and the beautiful Village Green Park.
Cashiers is well positioned in the mountains where city life is just a short drive away. Asheville, NC and Greenville, SC equally offer many eclectic dining opportunities, large cultural venues, excellent healthcare specialists, and convenient airports. Atlanta, GA is 2½ hours by car, and has become the urban hub of the south.
Each day in my words and my deeds, I will do my best to live these seven virtues: Honesty, Respect, Responsibility, Compassion, Self-Discipline, Perseverance, and Giving.
