Based on reviews from our residents and their family members, Mars Hill Retirement Community was named by Senior Advisor as the BEST in Assisted Living for 2020. But it didn’t happen overnight! We were voted best because of who we are and what we do, which means a large part of that award comes from our staff and our Certified Nursing Assistants, who are highly dedicated to making our residents feel like family. This honor also serves as recognition for the family-like community we’ve created here at MHRC.


MHRC is located on the edge of downtown Mars Hill, a cozy small town surrounded by some of the most beautiful landscapes that western North Carolina has to offer. And because we’re only forty minutes from Asheville Regional Airport, it’s easy for family and visitors from farther away to stop by.

We’re also seated next to Mars Hill University, the institution for which the town was named, and which inspired our dedication to lifelong learning and activity. The university provides our community with access to classes, a swimming pool, a weight room, and the vast Renfro Library. It also attracts an eclectic variety of performances and seminars to attend.


Food is the first step toward healthy living, and the dining service at MHRC is some of the best around. Our chefs can cater to any number of dietary needs or restrictions, and take great pride in creating their very own dishes—some are even old family recipes! The choice, variety, and nutrition of our seated dining service is unrivaled.
