Highlands house description

Beautifully decorated 3 bedroom, 3 bath home located in Highlands premier, gated lake front residential community. This 5 year old home is impeccably maintained with an open floor plan living/dining/kitchen area, 20 foot beamed ceiling and stacked-stone fireplace. Professionally decorated with an upscale, rustic, mountain cottage look and feel. The living/dining area opens onto a large covered deck overlooking a small pond and waterfall. The fully equipped kitchen has a counter/bar area.

There are 3 bedrooms and 1 loft bedroom. You enter into main floor with living/dining/kitchen area and one bedroom on this floor. Bedroom one on main floor has queen size bed and private bath. Bedroom two located downstairs from main floor has king size bed and private bath. Bedroom three located downstairs from main floor has 2 queen size beds and adjoining bath in hall. Also, there is a loft sleeping area with a pair of twin beds. There is a large flat screen TV in living room and all 3 bedrooms have flat screen TV's. House is equipped WiFi.

All residents and guests of Lake Osseroga have access to a lake with private boathouse, dock and canoes. This is a quiet, restful neighborhood ideal for a relaxing, adult vacation. The lake by restrictive covenants only allows canoes or small boats with electric motors. No motorized boats are allowed on this lake in order to preserve the peacefulness. Lake Osseroga sits at 4,200' elevation and is conveniently located on Hwy. 64 between the towns of Highlands and Cashiers. Highlands is 4.5 miles away and Cashiers is 5.5 miles away. Sorry, but pets are not allowed. We do not rent to anyone under 30 years of age.

We have another Lake Osseroga home in Highlands for rent (VRBO Listing # 303786) as well as a gorgeous New Orleans French Quarter home for rent (VRBO Listing # 294622) and a beautiful beachfront condo in Perdido Key, Florida for rent (VRBO Listing # 294983).

CNN writes 'Just north of the GA-NC border, the Blue Ridge Mountains cradle a small community with the charm of a village and the panache of a major city. In Highlands, NC, it's not what you do, but the simple pleasure of relaxation that makes a vacation fulfilling. Unsuspecting city folk find their cluttered thoughts routinely interrupted by birds chirping, or the trickle of a brook running down moss-laden rock. As in the 1800's, families with the time now relocate to Highlands in the summer and fall to escape the oppressive heat of the southern lowlands. At 4,118 feet, it's the highest incorporated town east of the Mississippi River.
