Highlands house description

Elegant Mountain Retreat! This spacious home is ideal for families, friends, weddings, and corporate gatherings. A serene hideaway within 1.8 miles from downtown Highlands!

Situated within a rainforest 4118 feet above sea level, the Highlands area offers nature lovers an abundance of activities. Hiking, whitewater rafting, and fishing are among the many options within arm’s reach. Some of the best golfing in the Southeast can be found in the area.

Relax in the natural beauty of this 7 Bedroom/4.5 Bath home. 1 King, 4 Queens, 8 bunks, and 1 queen sofa bed accommodate up to 20. The 3 story house features 2 separate family/TV rooms on two levels. The open kitchen flows into an 18 foot Cathedral ceiling dining room and double sitting family room. A large architectural stone fireplace functions all year round.

From the great room, step out onto the second story deck overlooking your own mountain stream. From the dining room, step onto the side covered porch area for al fresco dining and grilling. Or kick back with a book in the chaise lounges.

If you are in an exploring mood, paddle the two canoes down the Mirror Lake inlet and relish the lush greenery and cool Highlands climate. Don’t forget to bring some bread crumbs to feed the swans and ducks that swim alongside your canoes.

In addition to the many outdoor activities, Highlands is known for its wonderful restaurants, antiques, shopping, and quaint charm. Sample wines, coffees, and local sweets at the town cafes. Enjoy a massage at the newly opened world class spa or exercise at its health club in the heart of downtown.

Your vacation will be one to remember. The serenity of our family home will take you away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We hope you will return home refreshed and will return back to this “Blue Heaven” Highlands home for rejuvenation in the wonderful spirit of the mountains.
