This is Lonesome Valley, Cashiers North Carolina

When I first arrived in Cashiers, NC I had seen the signs from the road for Lonesome Valley, a community located just minutes from the center of town, yet very secluded.

It wasn't until we met the developer that I actually stopped in to tour the community.
From the street one wouldn't know how much the 800 acre community had to offer
unless they took a tour. Much of its beauty is over the large meadow and hill which can't been seen from the road.

The community of Lonesome Valley in Cashiers, NC is a 800 acre development with only 211 home sites averaging 3 acres in size. The community features creeks and ponds, natural waterfalls and views of the Laurel Knob Rock Face.

My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity to meet with the developer a few weeks ago. It was a casual meeting, since he had already seen our community, The Preserve at Eagle Crest, we were both curious to see what his community also had to offer.

On our tour through the beautiful community we were told by the developer that there are over 100 wild turkeys roaming around, we saw streams, bridges, creeks and waterfalls throughout. All the lakes and ponds are stocked with trout and bass; there are many natural old logging trails still in place which owners will use for walking trails throughout the community.

The most impressive of our tour was a nice secluded spot that included an up close and personal view of Laurel Knob Rock face.

Laurel Knob resides in the Panthertown Valley, just outside Cashiers, NC. The Carolina Climbers Coalition has purchased approximately fifty acres of land, including the main face right of the gully (as seen in the photo above), as well as a tract of land to be utilized for trail access.
Lonesome Valley has kept nature in mind when designing a wonderful viewing area of the Laurel Knob Rock Face. The above shot was taken at about 5pm in the afternoon. In the morning, the view is even more dramatic due to the positioning of the sun.
There are picnic tables and an enclosed pavilion for just relaxing and taking in the scenery. They had a nice sandwich platter from Cornucopia Restaurant in Cashiers, NC, drinks and tiki torches lit when we arrived at the site. What a nice treat!

Their plans include having private spa tents overlooking this beautiful landscape which will be located on 55 acres of this private luxurious, yet casual community.
