Want to get away from the hectic life? Head to the Britton House in beautiful Highlands, N.C. Nestled at the end of a quiet street, this mountain home is meant for relaxing. Whether you are drinking coffee and admiring the morning sunrise from a front porch rocker, or grilling on the deck and watching a spectacular sunset, this is the place for you. The Britton House features a great room with spectacular views where you can sit by the fire, read a book, or do a puzzle. And if you want to be connected to the outside world, we have Internet and three cable tv's. The master bedroom has unimpeded views of the Blue Ridge mountains. The guest room features two twin beds and a pac-n-play portable bed for a baby. The couch in the great room converts to a queen sleeper bed. You'll love the rhododendrum and wildflowers in the summer and gorgeous leaves in the autumn.
The Britton House is an easy 10- to 15-minute walk into town, where you can enjoy lovely boutiques, art galleries, and restuarants. And there are plenty of hiking trails nearby, as well as fishing, white-water rafting, and panning for gems. Come, escape the heat, and revel in the beauty of the Blue Ridge.

What a joy it was to stay in Britton House again this year! Last summer, it was the perfect homebase for an active family reunion. From there we explored the many treasures of Highlands and the surrounding area. This year, my husband and I returned for a bit of quiet time alone. This peaceful house was just right for walks, naps, tea on the deck and spectacular views of the nighttime sky. With comfortable beds, welcoming living spaces and a well appointed kitchen,the house has everything we hoped for. Britton House provides all the comforts of home in a resort setting. We will definitely return, and recommend this beautiful house!

Beautiful Mountain View
Beautiful Mountain View
We enjoyed our stay at the Britton House. The house had everything we needed. The large living room with our nightly fire in the wood burning fireplace provided a very delightful place. Both the mounatin range view from the living room and deck by day and the sunsets by night glowing in the mountains were gorgeous. We loved getting away from the Florida heat and breathing in the cool mountain air. In just a few minutes we could be in the charming town of Highlands having lunch at the gourmet grocery store or dinner at the Ugly Dog Pub. Our favorite dinner spot was Wild Thyme.

Such a Lovely Spot for a Cottage
Everything has been thought of to make our stay enjoyable. We came to escape the heat and the weather has cooperated. Such a lovely spot for a cottage nestled on a hillside. We hope to return.

The view is amazing. The neighborhood is quiet and secluded. The house is clean and well appointed - has everything we needed: corkscrew and wine glasses. The nicest touch was the bottle of sparking wine that Lori gave us!
