If the tranquility of bristlecone pine forests, refreshing mountain air and miles of hiking and riding trails sounds like paradise, then the Mt. Charleston area might be just the place to call home. Located 45 miles northwest of Las Vegas in the Toiyabe National Forest, Mt. Charleston is a popular vacation spot for those looking to escape the heat of the desert. It's also a great place to live year-round; you'll enjoy cool summer evenings, winter snows and relaxing lifestyle focused on the outdoors.
Mt. Charleston is known for its vacation properties, but there are also many permanent residences here. Real estate can be pricey (after all, it is a coveted vacation destination) and ranges from cozy mountain cabins to impressive custom homes.
