Cashiers, North Carolina is a charming small town known as the Heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its temperate rain forests host quiet streams and tumbling waterfalls, and when October comes around, they transform from green to a thousand shades of yellow and red leaves. The town is located about an hour's drive from Asheville – the perfect location for a Cashiers timeshare holiday.
The peak season for a Cashiers timeshare runs from May through October. During the late spring and summer the area's bountiful lakes, streams, and rivers are a haven of fishing, boating, and water sports. If you've come during the fall, some of the best places to visit are Panther Valley and the Rhodes Big View Overlook, where you'll catch some of the best mountain vistas and broadest sweeps of fall color. In winter, tourism drops down slightly but still attracts people wanting to experience the winter sports offered in the area. The slowest time of year is in late winter and late fall, particularly November and January through March.
Summer is Amazing Here
Summer is the best time to visit Cashiers’ many waterfalls. Silver Run Falls is a popular 25-ft waterfall where you can take photographs and swim in the natural pool beneath it. Rainbow Falls is even larger and more intense but named after the sparkling waterfalls that spring up on a sunny day. For a summer day of boating and fishing, Lake Glenville is a top choice and you can take a detour to the small museum nearby honoring the lost settlement of Glenville, which is now covered by the lake.
The center of the town rests at NC Highway 107 and US Highway 64. Here, you will have all the small antique and local shops your heart could desire, small-town restaurants, boutiques, and the farmer's market. The Cashiers Farmer's Market is a great place to pick up fresh fruits and vegetables to eat while staying at a Cashiers timeshare unit.
Craft Breweries and More
If you want some indoor afternoon or evening activities, the town sits along the Jackson County Ale Trail, a string of craft breweries with unique flavors and outdoor seating perfect for an adult's outing. For families and children, the Village Green is a 13-acre park in the center of town where you'll find over 80 special events throughout the year. It's also a perfect place to catch live music and other events on a summer night. The small-town atmosphere and outdoor venues make this town a perfect choice for family vacation memories.
