Our Story

Highlands, NC

Join A Family

Relationships, family and friends are really what we are all about…that is the real story. When you become a part of Cullasaja Club you become part of a family. It plays out every summer and fall with each member defining his or her own personal vision of life on a mountain, contributing to the experience that we all celebrate together.

Through The Gates Great Thought and Care Welcomes You

Created by Arvida Corporation in 1987 as a second home escape from the hot summer climates of the south to the cool mountain breezes, Cullasaja Club became a private club in 2000 with membership by invitation only.

Breathtaking Distractions

 A River Runs Through It

The community is carved out of the primeval forest stretching from the quaint town of Highlands to Whiteside Mountain. Hundred-year-old specimen trees dot the landscape with the Cullasaja River running right through it.

Each year, more families choose Cullasaja Club for its unique combination of simple mountain pleasures, a vibrant social club, and a casual, relaxed lifestyle that is shared by all generations.
