Lonesome ValleyWestern North Carolina
Nestled in a canyon at the base of granite faced mountains, you'll find one of the area's most beautiful North Carolina mountain communities formerly known as The Jennings Farm. Today, it is named Lonesome Valley. The Jennings family started the first trout farm in the Eastern United States on this property. Meadows, streams, Trout Pond stocked with trophy size trout and Long Lake are some of the community's natural amenities surrounding the Cashiers NC homes for sale.
Cow Rock Mountain and Laurel Knob are the names of the granite mountains commanding attention, reaching up over 1,200 feet at Lonesome Valley. Rock climbers often can be seen in the distance challenging the two mountains, hoping to reach the summit for a glimpse of the Blue Ridge Mountain views and of one of the best mountain towns in North Carolina. There are 10 miles of groomed hiking trails of all skill levels inside the gated community leading to Panthertown Valley and Nantahala National Forest, part of the Land of Waterfalls. West Canyon Falls and East Canyon Falls are both 200 foot cascading waterfalls on property.
