Imagine winding roads that reveal sprawling farmlands, cozy historic homes, and horse pastures that stretch for miles and miles. Valle Crucis is a place where the Watauga River’s “whispering waters” meet the most lush and fertile valley in the Blue Ridge Mountains and create a true mountain paradise, tucked far away from it all. Valle Crucis is located in Watauga County, and many visit it while vacationing here. It is replete with idyllic bed and breakfast inns and quaint country kitchens, and the original Mast General Store and Candy Barrel are located here. Filled with tons of great log cabins and luxury homes near Boone, Valle Crucis is a popular spot to buy vacation homes and retirement real estate.
The first settlers to the adorable community of Valle Crucis discovered that the area rested right where three streams meet and form the shape of a cross, thus they named the area Valle Crucis, or the Valley of the Cross. The settlers that came to the area were mostly families seeking religious freedom and trying to forge a new way of life. Because of this, numerous historic churches still stand in the area. Most of them are Episcopal churches with long histories that date back to the mid 1800s. You can live near these picturesque, historic places when you buy real estate in Valle Crucis.
