Highlands cabin description
This quaint log cabin is nestled in between the two local towns of Franklin and Highlands.
Offering privacy in the hidden mountains, this newly refurbished cabin dating back to the late 1800' s is sure to be a peaceful escape. Enjoy the trails along the property by hiking on its 15 acres where you can catch a glimpse of the unique mountain landscape.
Rock in the rockers on the porch and enjoy the serenity of the mountain air as you overlook the two ponds full of trout. At night, don’t forget to go out back and start up a fire. The warmth of the fire in the cool mountain air will only add to your experience. Prepare the Smores!!
Mostly settle in to this enjoyable home, bring out the board games, pop in the movies, drink a glass of wine, cook up a tasty mountain meal. Stop letting the hustle and bustle of everyday life drag you down, let our cabin remind you that relaxation is only a step away.
Master bedroom has a queen size bed. Upstairs bedroom has queen size bed. Loft bedroom has 1 full size bed and 2 twin beds. Bathrooms are located on main floor. Elevation of 3800 ft keeps temperatures cool.
This is a non smoking cabin. Due to the trout ponds and open stair risers and railings this is not an appropriate property for children under the age of 7.

Dream Come True
Dream Come True
For the past 5 years, I have been dreaming of making the trip from the West Coast to Highlands for the fall colors. After researching hotels in Highlands and all of the local rentals, this property really spoke to me. The thought of staying in a tin roofed log cabin set in the Blue Ridge Mountains was appealing. On our arrival, any thoughts of "run down rustic" were put to rest. While having the charm and feel of a historic property, the comfort and amenities were first class. The interior of the cabin blended country cozy and modern comforts perfectly. We enjoyed cooking in the gourmet kitchen and relaxed in front of the wood burning stove. Sleeping was comfortable under cozy linens and we looked forward to all the nearby activities each day. The property was even more beautiful than we expected. The owners were wonderful to work with and we believe that they must have orchestrated the daily appearance of "Buck" the turkey just for our entertainment. We left wishing that we did not live so far away as we would love to experience the other 3 seasons.

A must see if you are seeking peace and quiet in a beautiful setting! Located between Franklin and Highlands this rental is approximately 5 miles up a gorgeous mountain road. When we rounded the corner and saw the property for the first time we were completely in awe. This charming cabin is surrounded by woods and mountains, with two trout ponds in front and a small waterfall and stream running through the property. The cabin maintains its wonderful character from years past, while allowing for modern conveniences—beautiful craftsmanship of architecture and charming cabin décor. We spent mornings and evenings sitting on the deck. There is a grill for cooking out and a chiminea for enjoying a fire at night. Trails on the property make for great exploring and, of course, the trout ponds for fishing. This area of North Carolina is full of outdoor activities such as fishing, boating, and hiking. Highlands and Cashiers, in particular, have quaint little shops, boutiques, and garden nurseries for the avid shopper. The Biltmore in Asheville is a short drive from the cabin and makes a wonderful day trip. We couldn’t be more pleased with our rental experience. The owners were very hospitable and checked to see that we arrived safely. An unfortunate car accident the night before we were to leave left us with no transportation home. The owner was very helpful in giving us phone numbers and information for making arrangements. Upon arriving home we received a follow-up phone call making sure we were got home safely. This rental is a definite “ten”!!

Incredible vacation destination; This place has it all, wonderful views,stunning interior design, impressive architecture, and family feel.Our mornings began with coffee on the front porch watching the clouds breeze across hog back mountain, there were trout jumping in the pond and just the feeling that you were the only one for miles around. after a day of fun at nearby attractions we were able to retire to the rear porch and grill out with a glass of wine. I have never felt so comfortable in a VRBO rental. I have been in many places with VRBO and i would say this one is a must see destination. I will definetley be back to this one! Thanks again Jeff G.

Why the Owner Chose Highlands:
Our family has been vacationing in the Highlands area for over 50 years. Our parents owned this home for 25 years. This area is best known for its unparalleled natural beauty and perfect summer climate. Enjoy mountain vistas and breathtaking waterfalls along with cool mountain breezes all summer long. In the fall, spectacular leaf colors will dazzle your eyes. Activities abound for every age; world class golf courses, endless hiking trails, waterfalls, scenic overlooks, pristine lakes and trout streams, boating and canoeing, horseback riding stables within minutes on guided mountain trails, Gem Mining in nearby Franklin, and the NEW Harrah's Casino in close by Cherokee. Gourmet restaurants with charming antique shops in both Cashiers and the famous shopping district in Highlands are a short drive away. Just North in the town of Dillsboro, find the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad. There you may experience a Smokey Mountain scenic tour, with dinner aboard if desired. Day trip to Ashville, to the Biltmore Estate, to Great Smokey Mountain National Park, & Nantahala Whitewater Rafting Tours. All this, and the perfect mountain climate, have thousands of visitors coming back year after year! It's no wonder this area has been ranked by the Wall Street Journal, Rand McNally, and National Geographic Traveler, as one on America's TOP TEN places to live and play!
