Real Estate in Cullowhee - Homes For Sale

Even with just over 9,000 residents, Cullowhee has a lot to offer. Home to Western Carolina University, Cullowhee provides everything you’d expect from a college town — from poetry readings to independent movie screenings, available to students and locals alike. And, on fall weekends, you’re likely to find most people at the WCU football game — the Pride of the Mountains Marching Band is a must-see.

Cullowhee’s K-8 school, Cullowhee Valley, has an impressive variety of clubs and activities for students: Robotics Club, Battle of the Books, Band and Build-It Club are just a few of the many programs available. Kids and adults alike can find even more activities provided at the Cullowhee Recreation Center, operated by the Jackson County Parks and Rec Department.

As with most places in Jackson County, the opportunities to enjoy the outdoors are abundant. If you like disc golf (we won’t tell if you still call it a frisbee!), you don’t want to miss the Catamount Links course hosted by WCU. Prefer to drop in a line and hopefully catch a fish? The Tuckasegee River runs right through Cullowhee, but there are also dozens of creeks and other fishing holes for you to try your luck. The WNC Fly Fishing Trail has some terrific suggestions for your next angling adventure.

Are you a history buff? Check out the Mountain Heritage Center, where southern Appalachia’s cultural heritage and history are celebrated and preserved. After your visit, you’ll need a bite to eat; Cullowhee’s options include Mexican food at Sazon, coffee and baked goods at The Point, and traditional pub fare at Tuck’s Tap and Grille.

And, if you need to venture out beyond your Appalachian mountain home in Cullowhee, don’t worry: Asheville Regional Airport is only 45 miles away, with frequent connections to Atlanta via Delta and US Airways. For more local travel needs, you can take advantage of public transportation provided by Jackson County Transit.
