Escape the Heat at Preserve at Rock Creek

Weather Map of Southeastern US
Weather Map of Southeastern US

With the heat wave we've seen throughout the Southeastern US, if you’re reading this from the lower elevations - Georgia, South Carolina, and especially the coastal areas, where daytime temperatures are expected to reach the upper 90s (with high humidity) – then you’re probably ready for a break.

Now’s a great time to visit Cashiers, NC – right in the middle of the Plateau area of the Western North Carolina Mountains.  Our high temperatures will top out in the lower 80’s, and evening temperatures will cool down to the mid-60’s.  We're willing to go out on a limb and call that a comfortable change. If it’s still too hot for you, there’s plenty of whitewater rafting available to cool you down even further.


Historically, these lower temperatures are fairly normal for summertime at the Preserve at Rock Creek. From Memorial Day to Labor Day the average monthly high temperatures range from 77 degrees in June to 72 degrees in September, with July (the warmest month) still comfortable with a 79 degree average high.  Our approximately 4000 ft elevation keeps the temperatures so comfortable, and the humidity levels are kept low, too. It’s a combination that’s pretty hard to beat!

When you’re ready to escape the heat, come to Cashiers, NC and visit the Preserve at Rock Creek while you’re here. We’ll be more than happy to share the crisp, mountain air with you!
