Highlands cottage description
Our cabin is nestled in the Smoky Mountains of Highlands, NC, about two hours from Atlanta, Asheville, and Greenville. It's serenely located in the Mirror Lake Neighborhood. Mirror Lake is in walking distance from town about 1 mile located off Franklin highway. The new Bascom museum is right around the corner. The neighborhood is perfect for walking or riding bikes.
Our mountain retreat features a great room with a vaulted ceiling and a wood burning stone fireplace. A large deck and a fully furnished screen porch overlook our wooded, nicely landscaped lot. There's a grassy area for children to play. Relax in our charming great room in front of the fire. Sit outside and enjoy the cool mountain air in the comfort of our large deck. Or take a short walk to Mirror Lake. If your interested in shopping, antiquing and fine dining, downtown Main Street is only minutes away. If exploring the outdoors is what you are after, numerous hiking trails, waterfalls, and mountain streams are close by.
Come enjoy our home away from home as much as we do! You wn't want to leave!!

We have stayed in many cottages in Highlands and this is among my absolute favorites. The cottage is nicely decorated and was absolutely perfect in every detail. I appreciate fresh linens and a well-stocked kitchen and was pleased in both regards. The Mirror Lake neighborhood is perfectly charming and a great location.

We came to the Highlands for the very first time. Rowena's cottage made the stay the stay well worth it. The cottage is very equipped, comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. We brought our two toy rat terriers and the backyard was so great for them to run around. The cottage is so very close to town and convenient to all the sights. Sitting on the screened in porch was our favorite. We would sit out there with our dogs eating our lunch or dinner or just because. The serenity of the neighborhood was what we all needed coming from an area that is very populated. We would definitely book this cottage again.

This cottage is beautifully decorated and so very comfortable. It is well equipped and very quiet. The screened porch is a wonderful place to sit and have coffee in the morning and listen to nature. The beautifully landscaped back yard was so scenic. What a great experience. I could have stayed much longer!!!

My mother and I had the pleasure of staying here in July and had a wonderful time. The cottage was beautifully decorated, very comfortable and provided the relaxing vacation we needed. It is conveniently located to downtown Highlands, as well as some of the beautiful waterfalls Highlands has to offer. We would love to come and stay again! I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a nice and quiet place to stay when visiting the mountains!

Just returned from a long weekend at the cottage. The cottage is beautifully decorated (and landscaped) and we much enjoyed the mountain area. Spent alot of time on the deck and screened porch (my husband enjoyed napping there). Especially enjoyed the antiques! Beautiful area with much to do outside (lakes, shopping, restaurants, etc.). Rowena was most helpful when making reservations and very patient with all my (many!!) questions regarding the area and the cottage. She went out of the way with her friendly emails in informing us about Highlands. We would definitely visit the cottage again!

It is always wonderful to get away with my children and this was no exception! They hiked, while I relaxed on the screened porch with my coffee and then we would all go exploring together. The house was extremely comfortable and it was nice to have some of our meals at home in front of the fireplace! I will definitely plan to come back!

We went to Highlands for our anniversary and were referred to this house by friends who had stayed here and raved about it. We had the most fabulous time and will come back and stay here again. The setting is great and the house is so relaxing and comfortable. We even walked to town and fished in the lake. A and M
