Cashiers Village Hillside Shops Update

Breaking (ground) news!

(Click on all images to enlarge.)

We expect construction of the Hillside Shops to be completed by Labor Day. This will allow us to take advantage of the influx of visitors for October's Leaf Season. Opening Day will be Friday, October 2, closing on Sunday, Novmeber 1. Tentative hours of operation are Friday through Sunday, 12am-6pm.

We plan to open the weekend after Thanksgiving, just in time for the holiday shopping frenzy. Christmas hours to be determined.

Each cottage will be 9' wide and 7' long inside, with an additional 7' in length of covered porch.

The shops will be operated by select regional artisans and area merchants who desire a Cashiers Village satellite location. Space is going fast but still available. Please visit our web site and contact us through the information link.

Watch this space for more updates as we move along!

Cashiers Village Hillside Park - A Place in Progress!

More big changes are underway at the Crossroads as we ready the hill behind Tommy's Coffee Shop to host the Telluride Mountain Film Festival this July.

The land has been cleared, graded, and will soon offer gently-sloped, grassy banks where Festival attendees will relax on blankets and chairs.

The chefs are planning their menus, the bands are readying their play lists, and we have selected our favorite premium North Carolina wines. Click on the ad below to see the details.
Check back soon for a list of the films to be shown!

Feel free to stop by and look in on the progress of Hillside Park. We have a feeling that it will turn out to be a very happening place for our town.
