                    We just returned from a stay at Camp Carlee and had a fantastic time! The house is super cozy and a lot of attention has been put into details to make it a great place for a vacation getaway. The kitchen is extremely well stocked with high quality cookware and any kitchen gadget you could want! The owners also keep a great selection of boardgames, puzzles and movies at the house for entertainment while you are there. Lori, the property manager is also super helpful and was very responsive at all times!

                    We were friends & family coming together from different areas to meet in the Highlands for a bit of adventure while also desiring the lodging coziness that a Cabin often affords. When we walked in, we were impressed from the get-go....music was softly playing and low lighting was on providing the perfect ambiance from the first footstep over the threshold. We found the interior to be even better than the photos display, believe it or not. Beds & bedding were superb and the fireplace was utilized every evening before retiring to envelope ourselves in the king-sized luxurious-ness for our slumber. Breakfasts were our main preparations from the kitchen, although we discovered almost everything one would need for more in depth cooking. (Only thing we couldn't locate was a tea kettle). The waterfalls of the area and surrounding areas are truly "awesome" and the hiking is plentiful. Being near civilization but also feeling away from it all simultaneously....was convenient and achieved our desires of "escape." Overall, we fully endorse the Carlee Cabin as a fabulous place to stay....you'll sink right in and have a hard time packing up! A huge shout out of gratitude for allowing our Golden Doodle, Zoe to join in our vacation also!! She was a delight to have along and she respected every moment of being able to be at the cabin by being the best canine steward of her surroundings. Thanks so much for sharing your mountain retreat.

                    Camp Carlee is an enchanting cottage set in the beautiful village of Highlands, NC. The cottage is literally perfect--immaculately clean, upscale decorating and every amenity provided. Its close proximity to the town is extremely convenient, yet you have the feel of being in the solitude and peace of nature. Our family could not have had a better experience. Thank you David and Georgia for sharing your cottage; thanks to Lori for great management.

                    We stayed at Camp Carlee with another couple for a summer mountain getaway. It exceded our expectations. A charming roomy cabin, beautifully and tastefully decorated with a gourmet kitchen. We spent a lot of time on the cozy screen porch overlooking the forest. Upstairs and downstairs king suites are perfect. Lori Bee could not have been more helpful. The booking procedure was so smoothnand she always responded quickly to any questions. She is so nice!!! Very much reccomended:) Don't miss Dustys Superette 5 min away with every homemade gourmet food you could ask for, an excellent butcher shop and bake shop. Can't wait to go back to Camp Carlee!!!Thank you Lori:)

                    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.

                    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!

                    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 haven't been back to Highlands since September 2006 when my husband proposed to me. I decided to surprise him with a romantic getaway for Valentines. When I saw your home on VRBO... 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!

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: 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 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.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  'A vacation is what you take when you can no longer take what you've been taking.' -- Earl Wilson
