The bolt of excitement the first time a trout rises to take your dry fly, the sweet smell of the forest, and the wide-eyed wonderment of a child listening intently to folktales told around a glowing campfire. This is the place where lifelong friendships are forged and families deepen their connections.


This is where everyday activities become extraordinary.


Clear Waters, Cascading Waterfalls


Nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Mountaintop is surrounded by breathtaking views, more than 100 waterfalls and an abundance of hiking trails. Just minutes from your Mountaintop home is Lake Glenville, one of the most beautiful lakes in all of the Appalachians.

Set at an elevation of 3,100 feet, the lake’s crystal-clear waters, with a maximum depth of 125 feet, are fed by five cascading waterfalls. The lake’s 26 miles of shoreline feature quaint beaches that are ideal for family picnics, lakeside parties or other fun summertime activities. Enjoy the best the area has to offer at Mountaintop.


Less than a two-and-a-half-hour drive from Atlanta and only three hours from Charlotte, the Highlands-Cashiers region of Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains has been a cherished summer mountain retreat for Southern families since the late 1800’s.

Perched on the crest of the Mountains, and averaging 10 to 15 degrees cooler than surrounding locales, these rustic, yet stylish towns have been loved by generations of families for their authentic mountain charm, ideal climate and classic small-town. From fine art galleries and award-winning restaurants to scenic drives and famous auctions, the area is rich in activity and adventure.
