Property description

Visit our beautiful vacation home in Highlands, North Carolina! Bright and airy with lots of high windows: Rain or shine, there's never a dreary day at Creekview Cabin! Located at 4,100 feet, it's generally a good 20 degrees cooler than Atlanta or points south.

A great location, whatever your interests; only 7 minutes to main street Highlands, only 10 minutes to the Cashiers crossroads. Just off Highway 64, but on the back side of the ridge, so it's *quiet* and peaceful. Highlands is a fantastic place to vacation, with miles of hiking trails, interesting shops and superb restaurants in town, many golf courses, streams, waterfalls and lakes everywhere. It's been our favorite destination for the last 15 years, so we're eager to share it with our guests!

Three bedrooms and three baths sleep 6 comfortably, with room for another two on the comfortable sleeper sofa in the loft. Insulation in the walls and between floors gives good privacy, makes it easy for three couples (or a family with kids) to share the space without feeling like you're living in each other's back pockets. Every bedroom has a 26' flat-screen HDTV with cable connection and a DVD player, and there's a 42' screen and home theater system in the living room - No fighting over who gets to watch what!

Get a house of your own with 3 bedrooms & 3 baths, and freedom to come and go as you please, plus a pet-friendly atmosphere, for *less* than you'd pay for a basic hotel suite in town! We'd stayed in hotels and commercial cabins for years until we realized what a lousy deal it was: Private cabins like ours make *so* much more sense!

Can't get *completely* away? We know the feeling! There's a nice, very functional office area in the loft, with a large-screen monitor and printer/fax/copier for guest use. High-speed cable modem and Wi-Fi are also included, and there's free long-distance dialing for the entire US. If you can manage it, by all means turn off the email. Sometimes though, staying connected can mean the difference between a hurried weekend or relaxing week away. - Or between a week and a month's stay. At Creekview Cabin, you can stay as close or as far from work as you'd like, the choice is yours!

Creekview Cabin is dog-friendly: We *love* pets, but let us know about yours first. Highlands is a great place for dogs, you'll find lots of other dog-lovers up here if you choose to bring yours. Our little Aussie *loves* Highlands and our cabin, we bet your pets will too! (Sorry, dogs only; we regretfully don't accept cats as guests.)

Our cabin is *professionally managed* by one of the nicest, most accommodating rental agents you could meet. Lori will make sure everything's just so before you arrive, and if you need anything during your stay, she and her husband live right nearby, are there to help. (Lost keys or clogged drain? No worry over an owner in Atlanta or elsewhere trying to deal with it in the middle of the night: Lori's right there in Highlands, no problem need interfere with your relaxation!)

We LOVE Highlands, and think you will too! Give it a try, you'll be hooked for life!

PS: Visiting friends in the area? Our place is literally just across the main road from the Culasaja Club and just down the road from Wildcat Cliffs Country Club and Old Edwards at Highlands Cove. Stay here, visit there; all three are literally two minutes away!

Location Type

  • Mountain View:

    We actually don't think of it as a "mountain view" ourselves, as the view is through the trees, but a number of guests have commented on the beautiful view, so we won't argue. (In the winter and early spring with the leaves down, you can see Shortoff Mountain and others in the range from the living room area. In the summer, you'll know you're in the mountains, but honestly won't be looking at them directly.)...moreless

General

    Free long distance service covers all of the continental US. Cell coverage is spotty in the mountains (although Verizon and AT&T both work well at the cabin), so the free phone will come in handy!...moreless

    Ample parking area: Three cars easily, four in a pinch, or two cars with a boat, etc....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

Why the Owner Chose Highlands:
Highlands is a truly special area: We love the outdoors, and the miles of trails, streams, and waterfalls within easy driving distance. We also love the excellent restaurants in the area and great shops in town. We can go out and hike and get grubby enjoying nature's wonders during the day and then take a quick shower and enjoy 5-star dining at night. We've never found a place quite like it, and it's so close to Atlanta where we live: What a find! We're also dog-lovers; and our cabin is a place we can enjoy with Charlotte, our little Aussie. Helping other families with four-footed family members enjoy vacation time together was another part of our motivation in buying Creekview Cabin.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
When we were looking for a place, the listing for Creekview Cabin said 'convenient to both Cashiers and Highlands.' We remember thinking 'yeah, right - that means it's convenient to neither.' We decided to check it out regardless, though, and for once the real estate agent's description was accurate. It's such a short trip to Highlands (about 7 minutes along the main road) that we don't think twice about going into town. At the same time, places in the Cashiers valley that used to seem like a long trek when we stayed in town or down towards Dillard are now really accessible as well. Lots of our favorite hikes are down that side of the mountains (Panthertown Valley and the Chatooga River area), as well as our favorite restaurant (The Orchard) and great grocery shopping at the big Ingles, just east of the crossroads. Thanks to the location, we're enjoying more of the mountains than we ever did before. (We've also rented to a number of people who have friends with places at one of the nearby country clubs: We're literally across the road from the Culasaja Club, and only a bit over a mile to Wildcat Cliffs, just slightly further to Old Edwards at Highlands Cove. If you'd like to visit friends with a place at one of those clubs, you literally can't get much closer than our cabin!)
