Highlands lodge description

• Private pond & mountain brook for intimate picnics.

• Over 1100 sq ft of covered outdoor living area with stone fireplace, gas grill and spa.

• 23’ vaulted great room with stone wood burning fireplace, hardwood floors.

• Gourmet kitchen, concrete countertops and wormy chestnut island.

• Two king master bedrooms, walk in closets, private baths with walk in showers & large jetted tub or soaking tub for two.

• Conveniently located two minutes to main street highlands, 15 minutes to Cashiers.

• Walk to Mirror Lake and feed native Canada Geese and Mallards.

(Unfortunately this is not a kid friendly house. There could be safety issues with children and the spa and fireplaces. We also have valuable art pieces that are subject to breakage)

A gentle hike takes you to the Bascom Art Center and then on to town. Exclusive Mirror Lake community is quaint and charming. A truly magical property reminiscent of Adirondack lodges. This is why you come to highlands.

The lodge is filled with fine original art, luxurious furniture, period antiques and rugs from around the world. Artist designed custom ironwork by Whitney Butler Designs of Pensacola, FL. Professionally decorated & appointed by Stan Cox Interior Design, Knoxville, TN.

Beautiful maple cabinetry, professional knives & cookware. Multiple sets of everyday china plus fine china and crystal, and beautiful serving pieces.
Sit in antique wicker rockers on the wrap around porch, or the outdoor entertaining area with gas grill, wood burning stone fireplace, seating and dining area and covered spa overlooking pond and rhododendron gardens. Listen to the rain on the tin roof or relax and meditate by moss covered rocks and a gentle brook. Have breakfast on the screened porch off kitchen and dining situated over the tranquil brook and massive rhododendrons gardens.

Handsome library with games and books.

Property with 150' trees surrounding a large garden and flat area conducive to outdoor games. Stroll the vegetable and flower gardens or sit by the pond.

If the hot tub is not functioning due to mechanical failure, we cannot give refunds or credits. We maintain our spa but sometimes things happen that cannot be avoided. We will try to repair the spa as soon as possible but this is very difficult on a weekend. A functioning hot tub is not a condition of the rental. We will do everything we can to insure you a great vacation.

If this property is not available, we have two other absolutely wonderful cottages:

                          About the owner: David & Mary have visited Highlands for 30 years, initially camping. We have traveled in many areas of the world and have included some of our treasures for all to enjoy in this very special home Antiques, artwork, Persian rugs. We love to hike, cook and garden. David's artwork is hung throughout our home.

                          Why the Owner Chose Highlands:
                          The proximity to everything we love in Highlands makes this property very special. For the energetic, you can walk to the Bascom Art Center and from there you are a block to town.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                          Hiking trails are within minutes of our home. We are establishing cutting gardens and vegetable gardens for our guests to enjoy. The small private pond and stream running thru the rhododendron complete the perfect setting.
