The Cliffs at Mountain Park: Why go to the park when you can live in one?

It’s hard to imagine a better location to enjoy the best of the western Carolinas than The Cliffs at Mountain Park. Its proximity off the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway in Upstate South Carolina puts you within 30 minutes of Greenville, South Carolina with its broad business, cultural and dining opportunities, and less than 15 minutes from the charming towns of Flat Rock and Hendersonville, NC — two small town treasures, where modern convenience blends peacefully with idyllic charms of days gone by. This area is known as the Blue Ridge Escarpment — a place where the isothermal inversion of breezes sweep up from the meadows to the mountains, creating a climate that lets you enjoy outdoor recreation nearly every day of the year. This area also contains thousands of acres of national forests, state parks and protected wilderness areas. The Cliffs at Mountain Park is just a stone’s throw from Table Rock and Caesar’s Head, two of the Carolinas’ favorite hiking spots. And within the 5,000-acre community of The Cliffs at Mountain Park are 1,000 acres preserved for green space, parks and hiking trails.

Own at One, Enjoy All Seven

If you’re familiar with this area of the country, then you’re surely familiar with The Cliffs, a collection of luxury residential communities that span from Asheville, NC to Greenville, SC, including three communities on Lake Keowee. These seven communities stand as the epitome of excellence in golf, in lifestyle, in dining, in wine and — just as important — in appreciation of nature.

What is even more remarkable is that The Cliffs communities also offer what is undeniably the most complete club membership anywhere in the country. Membership in one community gives you reciprocal privileges in all seven of The Cliffs communities. This means you can play at your choice of seven nationally-acclaimed golf courses and make yourself at home at seven clubhouses offering more than a dozen dining experiences. There are wellness centers and spas, an equestrian center, a full-service marina, two farms offering seasonal produce, hiking and biking trails and more. As a member, you also have seven chefs, 13 sommeliers, fitness experts, golf instructors and pros at your service and more than 2,000 activities and events to enjoy each year. Whew! No doubt, you will be as busy or relaxed as you like. And right in the middle of all these amazing clubs sits The Cliffs at Mountain Park.

A Mountain Hideaway for Those with a Passion for Nature and Life.

The Cliffs at Mountain Park has a distinct appeal, a relaxed air of rustic elegance. Pass by the gatehouse and you feel it immediately — something similar to the subtle bliss of slipping into your favorite, perfectly worn jeans and old leather jacket. Drop into The Cabin, a charming, relaxed clubhouse overlooking the Gary Player Signature golf course with no hint of country club stuffiness. Here, enjoy the freshest, farm-to-table fare, or simply kick back and enjoy conversation and the view from the rocking chair porch.

The walkable, links-style course has been deftly designed to blend with the extraordinary topography. The fairways run along the banks of the North Saluda River against a backdrop of breathtaking mountain ridgelines. Gary Player specified Zoysia grass for the fairways, Bermuda grass for the greens and native grasses and landscape materials throughout the course to conserve and complement the natural beauty of this land.

The great outdoors is celebrated every day inside the gates. There’s an 8.5-mile trail system that includes eight nature trails and one multi-use super trail. Cyclists find the area within and around Mountain Park to be one of the best in the nation for road and mountain biking. In fact, Tour de France legend George Hincapie is The Cliffs director of cycling and can often be seen leading groups along the winding mountain roads surrounding the community.

The Village at Mountain Park is home to the new Wellness Center featuring innovative and unique fitness system called Funxtion, the first of its kind in the nation. You’ll also find a dental office here, along with a mix of commercial, office and residential space and many new services in development. Broken Oak Organic Farm, The Cliffs’ own five-acre organic farm is located next to the community and produces fresh vegetables, herbs and flowers that not only grace the tables of The Cliffs dining venues but many of the area’s renowned restaurants. Members help with harvesting and take advantage of the fresh-picked produce available each Wednesday at the farm market.
