Lonesome Valley’s story began in 1895 when E.H. Jennings first purchased the land. Remaining in the Jennings family for four generations, today Lonesome Valley encompasses 800 acres in the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains of Cashiers, North Carolina. Located just north of the Blue Ridge Escarpment, Lonesome Valley is committed to simplicity, family and the preservation of nature. Following responsible deed restrictions and thoughtful architectural guidelines, when fully developed, fewer than 180 homes will be built, leaving the remainder of the land in conservation, ensuring that the Jennings’ legacy will be protected for future generations.
