Trail's Inn is nestled in the quiet of the Blue Ridge Mountains. You will be only 5 minutes from downtown Highlands, NC, enabling you to enjoy the many arts, shopping, dining, hiking, local activities and amenities offered throughout the season. Best of all you'll come home to rest in the quiet and cool of a serene mountain cottage. Our secluded house has a wonderful open floor plan allowing forest views from every room.

Each of the two private bedrooms are attractively appointed with comfortable bedding, quilts, storage space and a private modern baths. The sunny, fully-equipped kitchen is large enough to accommodate more than one cook! Guests can choose to eat in the dining room, the sun room, or on the deck. If you have overflow visitors, there is a detached guestroom and bath available for the warmer months of May to late September. (Please be sure to see the link below for additional photos)

                  Highlands is well known as a superb destination for a relaxing mountain vacation with all of the attributes of a much larger city. There are many award winning restaurants, art galleries, boutique shopping, fine arts festivals, music, as well as hiking in the cool mountain air. Visit for a while and you'll want to return!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1972

                  About the owner: Visits here are always rejuvenating for everyone! The cool mountain forests, nearby Mirror Lake, the ever-present sound of the nearby waterfall, and the vast entertainment opportunities make for an ideal relaxing vacation. We love including family and friends for a step back to an easier life-style. Living in Atlanta we are only 2 hours away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Just a few days here allows for a great attitude adjustment in our hectic city lives!

                  Why the Owner Chose Highlands:
                  Our family has owned Trail's Inn for 40 years! Originally purchased by my Dad to escape the summer heat of Florida, we have had the opportunities to create so many family memories through the years.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Highlands has so many different hiking trails that we try a different one on each visit. With the shops, restaurants, and art galleries so nearby, there is always something to do. However, we often find that just sitting in the sun room or by the fire reading away the afternoon is the best alternative!
