Creston is located near West Jefferson, Blowing Rock and Boone, which allows residents to live a simple life without being closed off to modern conveniences.

The environmentally conscious community takes pleasure in the undeveloped land that encompasses fifty percent of the town’s acreage.

Picture a lightly travelled country road making its way through a scenic mountain valley, carved millions of years ago by the second oldest river in the world. Towering above is the majestic Three Top Mountain, with its highest “Big Rock” peak proudly standing 5,020’ above sea level, and over 2,000’ over the valley floor. If this sounds like a nice setting for your mountain dream home, then look no further than Creston, North Carolina.

Tucked away in the western part of Ashe County, North Carolina’s “Lost Province,” Creston offers authentic Southern Appalachian living to anyone lucky enough to call the area home. Hunting and outdoor exploration are enjoyed by many in the region – not surprisingly, Ashe County has produced several famous citizens and hunters over the years. One in particular, Wilburn Waters, is said the have bagged 120 bears in the area surrounding Creston. Another legend, Daniel Boone, is also said to have spent a good portion of his life at his cabin along Horse Creek, not far from Creston. Today, between Pond Mountain Game Land and Three-Top Mountain Game Land, Ashe county offers nearly 6,000 acres for hunting and hiking. The Blue Ridge Parkway and Mount Jefferson State Natural Area are also nearby, showcasing the premier beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains right in your backyard.

Throughout its history, Ashe County has led the state in agriculture and farming. Some of the first settlers in the region grew corn, flax, buckwheat, and rye. Wool was spun and woven at home, shoes were made from tanned hides, and Ashe’s first natives were largely self-sufficient. Today, Ashe County still has fertile and productive farmlands – thanks to the rich mountain soil along the New River, and the hard work of many who call the Ashe County home. On Saturdays from April to October, locally grown delicacies are available to the public at the Ashe County Farmers Market, as well as many other unique arts and crafts.
