If you’re looking at NC Mountain Properties for sale, chances are you’re also looking to escape the rigors of city life — either for occasional getaways or for the rest of your life. You’re looking for a change of pace… and a change of place.

Valley River Vista is that place. It’s far removed from city life. There’s no hustle. No bustle. Just a relaxed, easy-going pace.

Murphy is the closest town, just minutes away. There’s a nice variety of restaurants, shops, and services …including a regional hospital. You’ll also find very little traffic. Andrews, Brasstown and Hayesville are neighboring towns, as are Bryson City, Franklin and Sylva to the east.

The newest area attraction is the Indian-owned Harrah’s Cherokee Valley River Casino, just five miles away. The 50,000 square foot casino opened in fall of 2016 with 1,050 slot machines and 70 traditional table games, a five-outlet food court and a 300-room, full-service hotel. Table games include blackjack, 21 plus three, three-card poker, Mississippi stud, baccarat and mini-baccarat.

Harrah’s and the entire Murphy area are popular getaway destinations for Atlanta, Chattanooga, Knoxville and Asheville, each about two hours away. Greenville and Charlotte are a little further, yet still within easy reach for a weekend in the Western North Carolina mountains.

If you’re a pilot, you’ll be pleased with the Western Carolina Regional Airport, just ten minutes from Valley River Vista. With its 5,000-foot runway, the airport can accommodate all private aircraft, including corporate jets. And rental cars are available.
