Highlands cottage description
Welcome to a place of enchantment. This unique cottage, a blend of the Old and the New, offers the bliss of the mountains yet all the modern day essentials. Nestled in on a ridge in the Mirror Lake Neighborhood, it overlooks 6.5 Acres of wooded privacy from a 32 foot Living Porch (2/3 covered) with the enjoyment of Humming Birds, Owls, Stary Nights, and Total Peace. From here it is an easy walk to Mirror Lake and just minutes away from downtown Main Street and all Highlands has to offer.
The large Master Bedroom with Cathedral Ceilings is separately located upstairs encompassing an incredible vista and wintertime mountain views. The Master Bath with jetted tub is almost like being in the woods. A Second Bedroom has Extra Length Twin Beds, which may be joined to make a King, and is privately located on the Main Floor. The Music Room, for those who love Piano, is a wonderful retreat also allowing space for additional sleeping (Coleman Mattress). There is an adjacent Half Bath.
On those chilly evenings a wood burning stone fireplace adds the final touch of what we most seem to enjoy in our mountains. Welcome home !!
Disclosure: Owner is a licensed Real Estate Broker in North Carolina and Georgia acting as Principal.

- Highlands has something for everyone. It is a 'real' town as well as a destination for weddings and other special occasions. Most often it is 10 degrees cooler than Atlanta, for example. One can enjoy fabulous boutique shopping, fine restaurants, outstanding 'arts', as well as the 'run of the mill', plus exquisite scenery, cool summer temperatures, hikings, waterfalls, peace and quiet. Is there something more??...moreless
ReviewsWrite a review
We stayed here for almost a full week and found it to be incredibly relaxing. The master bedroom is especially impressive. The home as a whole is rustic and very comfortable, and full of character. The back deck was sizeable and has a great view. There was a small fenced backyard for our dog. My wife found the owner of the property to be an excellent decorator. She was additionally gracious, communicative, and accommodating. Her price was more than reasonable. Highlands is either a 5-minute drive or a 15-minute walk away, but our time there was marked by peace and quiet. Having visited Highlands several times and stayed in a variety of homes, cabins and inns, we would recommend this property to anyone without hesitation. We hope to return again in the near future.
