World Class Arts
Boasting more artists per capita than any other area in the country, our area is home to many world class artisans. Beginning with nationally acclaimed Penland School of Craft, you will find hundreds of artists and artist studios throughout the communities. The Toe River Arts Council hosts two studio tours during the year, where artists open up their studios to the public for an entire weekend. Galleries and studios can be seen throughout every town where locals can find amazing handcrafted items throughout the year.
If you are an outdoor enthusiast, then you have found your spot! Miles of mountain streams for fishing, canoeing, kayaking and tubing. Class IV whitewater rapids can be found right here in Mitchell County on the Nolichucky River. If hiking is your thing, we sit right in the middle of Roan Mountain, the Appalachian Trail, the Blue Ridge Parkway and just a few miles from Mt. Mitchell, the highest peak east of the Mississippi. Hunting, fishing, river sports, biking, running, motorcycling...you can have it all.

Nestled between the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Appalachian Trail and surrounded by native trout streams, the world's largest rhododendron garden and quaint small towns, the Toe River Valley area is a perfect location for your dream home.
