Highlands cabin description
I fell in love with Highlands, North Carolina upon my first visit in 1990. Built in 2001, my home was given the name 'Little Aspen' from friends and family. The quaintness of the town, it's shopping and dining experiences will give you just the proper amount of a home town elegance and charm. This quaint town of 3000 residents grows to over 20,000 during the summer.
My home was custom built and is walking distance from the downtown area. Those of you that are adventurous can walk to town, it is only a mile. I have walked to have breakfast and/or lunch, shopped and returned home the same way.
It is a charming 3 bedroom (2 king/1 queen) 4 bath cabin. Bonus Room with convertible sleep sofa (very comfortable I might add). Each room has it's own dedicated bathroom with heat lamps, grantite countertops, sandstone and custom tile bath and shower.
It was built for comfort with a certain style of elegance that many have enjoyed with me. A 12' wide wrap around covered porch over looks the lake and waterfall. Enough seating for guests to nap, have one on one conversations, play games and eat lunch or dinner all at the same time. A favorite spot that most have a hard time leaving.
Gourmet kitchen with a 46' Viking oven (6 burners and griddle) and wine cooler accompany other standard appliances. Cozy banquet kitchen seating (up to 10).
Enjoy the canoe on a stocked lake (sorry, catch and release only).
Please enjoy tthe pictures avaialble and feel free to call for any other questions.
Keywords: Perfect elegant and cozy mountain home. Canoe the lake and enjoy the wrapped around porch over looking waterfalls.

Wonderful House and Owner
Wonderful House and Owner
My husband and I with our grown children spent almost the entire Thanksgiving week at this upscale cabin. We all had a fabulous time. We did not use the canoe on the lake that the house overlooks, but we did enjoy the game room with the pool table and other activities. The kitchen was appointed well for our Thanksgiving feast preparation and late snacks or drink preparations. We also loved the area waterfalls and restaurants. Skip the Old Edwards Inn breakfasts - not wonderful ; be sure to go to Wolfgangs for dinner but not until regular service at 5:30 p.m. where you can be seated in the "adult" restaurant area; otherwise, you will be relegated to the "bistro" area and be subjected to the adjoining table's patrons practically in your lap! We hope to stay in this home again, perhaps during the upcoming summer season where we can enjoy a break from the hot Atlanta season. The hospitality was wonderful and most kind. It was a fabulous experience.

About the owner: Hi I am Mimi. 'Mimi's Cabin' was named by my granddaughter. When younger, she wondered how she would take 'Mimi's Cabin' home after one weeked visit. After reading the description of my mountain cabin, feel free to contact me directly with any question that I may not have covered for you.
Why the Owner Chose Highlands:
Highlands, NC is only 2 hours from my home in Atlanta. It is like going to Europe in my back yard. I absolutely fell in love with the Highlands area the first year I visited in 1990.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
My favorites about this wonderful home is the location! A brisk walk to downtown for breakfast and window shopping is a wonderful way to start the day. There is plenty of nearby golf courses to choose from. If hiking is your passion, the Highlands area has it all! The Highland Hiker can assist you with all levels of intensity. Afterwards, enjoy the downtown spa then complete the relaxing with a wonderful meal. There are many excellent restrurants cuisines to choose from.
