The Dickens You Say

Stewart Manning’s Christmas Village is an eye-popping testament to patience, ingenuity, and a healthy dose of imagination.

Christmas Wreath Salad

When we think of the holiday table, “healthy” is not necessarily the first word that comes to mind. Deliciously delicate and pretty, Christmas Wreath Salad will make your holiday table shine. The striking balance of slightly bitter kale and the sweet pomegranate seeds will add flavor to any the party.

The Best Gift of All

The holiday season is the perfect time to reflect upon the vital work undertaken by the Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust.


Ask anyone who lives on the Plateau and they’ll eagerly tell you why all four seasons are glorious! Winter views, spring wildflowers, summer hikes and waterfalls, and autumn leaves. There is something here that speaks to the heart of the nature lover all year long. Wiinter activities take on a magical quality. Spring and summer months bring bounteous blooms. Apples, glowing leaves, and craft fairs are here during autumn. Search below for seasonal favorites.
