Highlands house description
This year-round Highlands home was completely renovated in 2009, with a unique mountain feel. The decor is sophisticated, yet you will feel very comfortable as soon as you enter the front door, which is only 2 steps up from the flat front yard. The spacious living room has comfortable seating around a masonry fireplace and flat-screen TV. The dining room opens to the deck on two sides where you can enjoy the eastern view, including Shortoff mountain. It is the perfect place to view the Fourth-of-July fireworks.
There are two bedroom suites on the main level. The master bedroom is on the back of the house and you can wake up to the the sunrise as it comes across the mountain. It has a king bed and private sitting area. The front suite has a queen bed and looks out on the garden. The kitchen is fully equipped and has updated appliances. The deck has a table and chairs and a conveniently located gas grill.
The terrace level has a great room, complete with a fireplace, TV, and a game table for games or puzzles which are provided. The great room opens to the lower level deck which had a cozy covered area with custom furniture made from local trees. There is a bedroom with twin beds, which is perfect for children and has books for readers of all ages. The fourth bedroom has a queen bed and private entrance to the downstairs bath, which is one of the surprises of the home. The large bath was custom designed with an antique claw footed tub situated under a window to enjoy the outdoor view. Local river stone was sliced and is used as the walls in the shower and flooring in the bath. A separate area has a unique sink situated on an antique table. The laundry area is also located on the terrace level.
Highlands boasts that it is the town with the highest elevation, east of the Mississippi River. Temperatures can be cool at night throughout the summer, however central airconditioning is available for the rare warm night. There are many activities in-town or nearby, however this is a retreat you will not mind just relaxing at.

This was the perfect retreat for a girls reunion. It would also work for families with children or even 2 families. The house was beautifully decorated, cozy and we walked into town for dinner. We decided to stay in the second night because we were so comfortable just sitting by the fire. I hope to stay her again.

My parents, husband, and I have been going back to Highlands (we went as a family growing up) for the last 5 years. We love Holt Knob and this house was just wonderful. The house is a showplace, but remains very comfortable and livable. The space was perfect for us and the usual rains of Highlands held off the for entire week! You couldn't find a nicer place. Thanks for sharing your home--we took good care of it!!

A few of my friends and family (6 people) just got back from this amazing Highlands home for a weekend getaway. It was a really great weekend, and the house is great! It's even better in person than the photos, which is rare on home rental sites. I have been using VRBO for many years, and this is definitely one of the best places. It's perfectly clean, beautifully decorated, and had everything we needed for cooking and hanging out. I highly recommend it!

Wonderful home away from home!
Wonderful home away from home!
We were beyond pleased with this weekend getaway in the beautiful mountains of Highlands! Our family has traveled to many different places throughout North and South Carolina, and this is by far our favorite. The home so welcoming and cozy. The views are incredible. Special touches abound. Plus, all shopping and restaurants are within walking distance. We will definitely be back! Thank you for a wonderful Fall getaway!

This place was perfect for my family. The accomodations were great! Close to town easy access. The view from the master bedroom each morning was spectacular. My parents had a place in Highlands for years and my mom felt as comfortable in this house as hers. The downstairs rooms were great for the kids. We had my husbands family over for dinner (who have a place nearby) plenty of room! We have chefs in the family so the fresh vegetables from osage farm, the meat from Dusty's,and the specialty foods from Mountain Fresh made for great meals. The kids went horseback riding in Dillard and went to Mirror Lake swimming. Of course my Christmas shopping is done now because the stores are great especially Peak Experience and Briar Patch. My daughter took an art class at the Bawscom Gallery also. Fun family week! Will stay here again.

Everything about this house is great! It is beautifully decorated and extremely well kept and clean. Convenient location to town with a gorgeous view of the mountains. It would be great for families or several couples looking to vacation together, but also has romantic charm for a getaway for two. It has plenty of dining space as well as great outdoor space. We highly recommend staying here.

Year Purchased: 2004
Why the Owner Chose Highlands:
I found Highlands when I was 25 years old, and fell in love with the town. I have been coming back ever since and purchased my first cabin in 2001. The people are friendly, there is so much to do and I enjoy the town year-round.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The top of Holt Knob is flat and it is a great place to take a walk with an evening cocktail. The neighborhood consists of year-round residents as well as weekend and summer owners. The neighbors are all very friendly, the architecure is varied, the views are amazing and town is so convenient.
