Our Story



Cottage Walk is an idea born from an immediate need for a luxury, in-town Cashiers, NC community – conceptualized and brought to life by owner Chuck Watson whose deep roots as a farmer lead him to help bring Cashiers Village into the 21st century through thoughtful development of this farmhouse-style community.


Going back to the days of the earliest settlers, when visitors from the low country traveled by carriage on the old Cherokee Indian trade routes, Cashiers Valley has long been a destination for visitors escaping the brutal southern heat. Although the days of the horse and buggy have long since passed, the Cashiers community to this day continues to cater to vacationers and local residents alike.


Cottage Walk fits an immediate need where there is scarce supply with high demand for in-town living. Buyers today are focused on family, friends and fun with their time and energy spent as efficiently as possible. Wealth no longer equals sole monetary success or affluence, but equals instead the quality of the time spent with the people you love in the place you long to be. This ideal is the true Cottage Walk story – the most genuine reason you escape to the luxury of in-town living.
