Nothing says 'Vacation' like a cabin in the mountains. Located less than 3 minutes from Main Street in downtown Highlands, this convenient getaway has it all. Life at Camp Carlee is relaxed and inviting; it's warm fires, cool evenings and great memories.

The great room features custom lighting, a flat screen television with DVD player, Bose stereo, and many natural details to make you feel at home. Additionally, it offers dining for six and a spacious living room, which opens onto the screened porch. The well-appointed kitchen and stainless steel gas grill provide the perfect combination for a night of entertaining or a nice meal with the family. For those who prefer some quiet time or like to make the most of a rainy day, choose a book from the library to read in the leather chairs, play board games or browse the wireless internet from any location you choose. This cabin boasts two master suites, each with its own balcony, king-sized bed, LCD/DVD television and private bathroom. Each room features egyptian cotton sheets, warm quilts and down comforters. If additional sleeping space is needed, the queen size sleeper sofa in the great room is also very comfortable.
For the adventuresome, white water rafting, fishing, mountain biking and repelling are close by. If you are in search of an easy day trip, take a hike up to Whiteside Mountain or nearby Glen Falls. For those who appreciate the arts; enjoy the professional summer theatre or the highly acclaimed Chamber Music Festival. Camp Carlee's close proximity to town makes a stroll along Main Street enjoyable for everyone.
After the day's activities, take in a nightcap on the screened porch and enjoy the calm evening surrounded by nature. Whatever you are looking for, you are sure to find it at Camp Carlee.

The house is wonderfully decorated and very cozy which made us feel at home instead of at someone else's house. You can tell they have thought of everything from things to do, places to see and owner even put in a few of their favorites which was nice since we had never been there. We took our 3 small kids and they had a blast! Very good location to town, food and trails. Will be going back and owners were easy to work with and very accomidation.

Perfect mountain getaway cabin!
Perfect mountain getaway cabin!
We just spent four wonderful days at Camp Carlee. Wish it could have been longer. Everything was first class and we wanted for nothing. We like to cook and found everything we needed in the very well-equipped kitchen. The decor is so perfect for a cabin, yet again, first class in every aspect. We have been visiting Highlands for many years, staying at Inns locally, now we feel we have a new "home" to go to when we visit our favorite mountain town. We will be back. Thank you Georgia and David for sharing your wonderful mountain home with us!

Beautiful setting, beautiful home.
Beautiful setting, beautiful home.
Camp Carlee is an incredible "cabin in the woods". Extremely comfortable with two king size beds and TVs in each room. The designer details add to the overall beauty of the home. Several extras added to the comfort of our stay. Just to name a few were books, movies, games and a well appointed kitchen. All the comforts of home and more!

I know it was the perfect choice. It's beautiful and lacking nothing! I feel completely at home. The decor is perfect. Thank you for opening your home to us! We are thing of making this a yearly trip!

About the owner: Currently living and working in northwest Florida, we often find our minds wandering to the mountains of western North Carolina. Although we are not able to spend as much time as we would like in Highlands, that leaves more time available for guests to stay at our cabin. Any time of year is a great time to enjoy the wide range of scenic wonders and events this area has to offer. David and Georgia Carlee
Why the Owner Chose Highlands:
Our family has been coming to Highlands, NC for years and in 2008 we decided to purchase a property for friends and family to enjoy. We have since opened our cabin to those interested in experiencing the beautiful scenery and breathing in the fresh mountain air. Four distinct seasons and plentiful ammenities allow Highlands, NC to provide something for everyone. From quaint shops and restaurants to numerous outdoor activities; we know that you will have a truly fantastic time here.
