Highlands Real Estate
Highlands has been a mountain respite for over a century allowing our visitors to unwind while being treated to the finest amenities. Highlands is one of the highest towns east of the Mississippi River, with an elevation at 4,118 feet. It’s also located in one of the few temperate rain forests in North America. While this mountain resort town along scenic drive Highway 64 only has a year-round population of 3,200, it swells to over 18,000 in the summer. It’s ten miles from Cashiers.
In addition to a multitude of outdoor activities in the surrounding Nantahala National Forest, Highlands boasts exquisite restaurants, fabulous shopping, and great cultural arts scene. The “postcard” downtown offers plenty of art galleries, antique stores and upscale boutiques. Five of the restaurants have been awarded the coveted Wine Spectator Award of Excellence. In the middle of downtown Highlands is Old Edwards Inn and Spa, a resort consisting of the historic main building, a full-service European–style spa, Madison’s Restaurant and Wine Garden.
