It's all about Location
The mountains, rivers and lakes of Western North Carolina offer a lengthy menu of outdoor diversions. Our quaint towns contribute to a uniquely mountain lifestyle — a quality of life that residents treasure…and others dream of.

Charming Small Towns
Murphy, Andrews, Brasstown and Hayesville are all charming small towns with a variety of shops and restaurants as well as performing arts groups and museums. And just up the road is the internationally known John C. Campbell Folk School offering classes year-round in craft, art, music, dance, cooking, gardening, nature studies, photography and much more.
Hiking & Exploring
For hiking, the Fires Creek Wilderness Area and the Appalachian Trail are nearby, as are the Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. And for a different way to travel, there’s horseback riding along mountain trails and soaring over them on a zip line. Or choose mountain biking on the nationally-known Jackrabbit trails overlooking Lake Chatuge.
