Highlands house description

Dear travelers,
Thanks so much for checking out our property!
If you'd like to make an inquiry, please follow instructions at the bottom of this section by clicking on 'more details'.

This lovely Highlands mountain home is nestled between Whiteside and Black Rock, perched high above a valley with sweeping easterly views of the Smokies. The naturally landscaped lot is situated on a private road, with off-street parking for 8 cars (no street parking), a short walking trail with rope swing, and a darling playhouse for the kids.

The home's three levels offer many options for gathering together, and cozy spaces to retreat to for quiet time. Watch the sunrise or the fog roll in from two levels of decks and balconies, or on the lower deck with the gas fireplace blazing.

Seven bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. Lower king bedroom uses spa bath across the hall. Six bedrooms on view side. Most have sitting areas and fireplaces.

You probably won't want to leave the property...but if you must, Highlands is 3 miles away. Stroll along quaint Main Street for some shopping and dining; and stop by the Highland Hiker for outdoor gear and great local advice on what to do in the area. Hiking, fishing, golf, swimming holes.


PLEASE NOTE: Rates are based on up to 14 guests, are subject to change without notice, and do not include tax. The 'instant quote' feature will give an idea of your total cost, or I'm happy to provide for you.

Our calendar is kept up to date with confirmed reservations, but does not reflect pending reservations. Priority is given to family and returning guests, and therefore we're typically unable to confirm 'first-time' bookings until about 6 months prior.

No additional guests (day or overnight) are allowed without prior written approval. Our home is meant to be used as a gathering place for friends and families, and is not available for parties or events.

Children are welcome, but the property poses some dangers (cliffs! bears!). We consider total number and ages to determine whether our house is a good fit for your group, and require a ratio of two adults per child to ensure adequate supervision.

For our new guests, we require a referral from a past guest, or two references from other vacation rental owners.

TO MAKE AN INQUIRY:
Based on HomeAway's security guidelines (read more in the Security Center), I now only respond to inquiries containing the following information:

- specific dates (these can be changed later)
- phone number with a good time to call you
- some information about your group: # adults with general ages, # children with specific ages, where you're coming from, and the reason for your visit (i.e. family reunion, wedding, golf retreat, etc.).
- what drew you to our place (just a quick detail so I know you're a real person!)
- please also review rates and minimum stay requirements before inquiring.
- We have a 5 night minimum for our standard rate, but do offer shorter stays at an increased rate.

Thanks so much for your time, and I look forward to speaking with you!
- Mead

                      Year Purchased: 1999

                      About the owner: Hello! My family completed our special mountain home in 1999, and continue to make improvements and additions as our family grows. We still use it often ourselves, and have enjoyed sharing it with other families as a vacation rental since 2010. We're honored and blessed that so many choose to return yearly! I'm the oldest 'kid', and manage bookings for my family from my home in Seattle, WA. I've chosen not to list my phone number after a few too many pushy marketers, as well as some early morning calls due to the time difference; but I do provide it to serious inquirers and welcome the opportunity to tell you more about our special place.
