Perhaps it was the cooling mountain breezes that first beckoned them here. Or the lush splendor of our rhododdendron and mountain laurel. Or, perhaps, it was the enviable notion of life in a richly historic, quaint village resort. Whatever the reason, Highlands, NC, has long been recognized as more than just a summer respite for heat-weary sotherners. Visitors the world over have soon become lifelong residents, and those who call Chestnut Hill home are no different. In the picturesque and inspiring mountainscape, amid the Blue Ridge Mountain’s vibrant colors and relaxed seasons, residents of Chestnut Hill experience the ultimate in carefree upscale retirement living. Custom-built cottages, spacious apartments, attractive suites, as well as a myriad of amenities and services, combine to create an atmosphere that encourages independent, stylish, and tranquil living.

“When we walked through the front door that first day, we felt welcome.  Everyone whom we met was very helpful and nice.  The food is excellent and we are so happy here. Why didn’t I come sooner?”
John – resident of Chestnut Hill
