Services & Amenities

Our residents have led interesting and exciting lives. They expect to continue that once they move to Givens Highland Farms. We offer a 5,000-volume library that's open round-the-clock - not many public libraries can say that! There's an arts and crafts studio, a well-equipped woodworking shop, fitness programs and a dog park. With our large community garden and winter greenhouse - you're never far from nature, no matter what the season. There are plenty of opportunities to simply sit and admire the natural beauty of the North Carolina mountains. We suspect before long, you'll have a favorite spot or two or three!

Givens Highland Farms is always growing and improving, with the goal of providing amenities as unique as our residents. New services and amenities are being actively developed and planned for the future!

Our grounds, facilities, and housing are well maintained, leaving our residents time to do what they want to do. Many of them talk of the sense of peace, security and satisfaction that they feel here.

Over 36 interest groups offer a variety of physical, cultural and social opportunities. The walking areas, dog park, and quiet nature trail allow you to enjoy the live music of birds and abundant wildlife throughout the seasons. Many of our residents choose to reach out to the larger community to provide volunteer work. The Residents Corporation contributes to approximately six philanthropic organizations. Just as important to many of our residents, are the impromptu activities that spring up through a casual walk or lingering over a cup of coffee in the dining room.​
