Highlands, North Carolina

“The Aspen of the East”

Highlands, North Carolina, as well as surrounding towns of Glenville, Sapphire Valley and Cashiers, is a small town located in the southern Appalachian Mountains, inside the Nantahala National Forest.

It is approximately 85 miles southwest of Asheville; 10 miles from downtown Cashiers / Glenville; and 17 miles from Sapphire Valley. Highlands sits 4,100 feet above sea level which makes for cool summers and mild winters.

In addition to its natural beauties – long-range mountain and lake views, stunning fall foliage, cascading waterfalls, and more – Highlands is also a must-visit destination for antique hounds, foodies, art lovers, wine enthusiasts, and all-around shoppers.

And, if you have a favorite furry friend, you’ll be pleased to learn that Highlands is a very dog-friendly town (but watch out, Fido may get spoiled with all of the treats he or she will get!).

Highlands is also home to many country clubs, resort-style golf courses, a public library, The Highlands Playhouse the Instant Theatre Company, the Martin-Lipscomb Performing Arts Center, and the Bascom, a non-profit visual arts center that offers classes and exhibits work by local and national artists.
