Sassafras Ridge

Pristine Beauty in a Mountain Forest 

Colorful mountain peaks against a Carolina blue sky. Lush mountain laurel and rare Catawba rhododendron. Crystal clear mountain streams and waterfalls. Dramatic long-range mountain views. This is Sassafras Ridge, a stunning gated community developed by our late Founder and President, A. William McKee.

Surrounded by National Forest and private conservancy lands, yet close to Cashiers and Sapphire Valley, Sassafras Ridge truly offers the best of both worlds.

Perched on 259 acres, but with only 30 homesites, privacy is foremost. Residents enjoy secluded, luxury mountain living above the Sapphire Valley. This is where one truly can get away from it all.

Nestled within the Sassafras Ridge community is Chimney Camp. Set amid the stately presence of Chimney Top Mountain, a Cashiers and Sapphire Valley landmark, Chimney Camp features upscale construction, exceptional privacy, beautiful woodlands and colorful flower gardens.
