Highlands cottage description

This charming cottage is situated in a serene setting overlooking Highland's Lake Sequoyah and the Blue Ridge mountains. The 38-foot deck is perfect for viewing gorgeous sunsets and starry nights, lounging on a sunny day, or just taking in the beauty of the lake, mountains, natural surroundings, and fresh North Carolina air.

The stone fireplace lends warmth to a cozy family room with a wood-beamed ceiling, skylight, hardwood floors, and a stunning view of the lake. Some of the amenities you will find include a 27-inch cable TV, VCR/DVD, CD player, WiFi, games, books, magazines, videos and free long distance service.

Bake some goodies in the country kitchen, which houses all the necessary appliances, supplies, and modern conveniences. Dine indoors looking out bay windows or grill outside and enjoy your meal on the deck with a spectacular view.

Plenty of sleeping quarters with three delightfully decorated bedrooms (king, queen, and two twins).

The king-size and queen-size bedrooms have lake views, cable TV, ceiling fans, comfortable mattresses, quaint antique furnishings and mountain decor. The twin-bedded room also includes cable TV and a ceiling fan. There are two full baths with showers and tubs, plenty of space for toiletries, a half bath off the queen-size bedroom, and a separate laundry room with washer and dryer.

Lakeview is only one-and-one-half miles from the center of Highlands, a great place to shop or dine in some of North Carolina's finest restaurants. Located just minutes from hiking trails, scenic waterfalls, and lake access for canoeing or kayaking. You can ride ATVs, go rappelling, llama trekking, horseback riding, or picnic at a public beach that is less than five minutes away. The winter months are the time for downhill skiing, snow boarding, and tubing, which are all within 15 minutes.

If you want a vacation where you can get away from the fast pace and stress of everyday life, spend some time in Highlands. For more information or to book a reservation, please call us toll free.

                            We have made Lakeview an annual "event" for several years. We are a group of old friends who have stayed in touch, but live in various places away from each other, so we were looking for a place to stay we would want to return to that was equidistant for those farthest away. Lakeview fit the bill - but it is much more than that. From my initial call to Mark, who is incredibly accessible and pleasant, to the arrival at Lakeview to the days we spend there, it is a wonderful, relaxing experience. Mark and Chris are quite involved and care about the cottage and the renters and make it as pleasing and convenient as they can. The cottage is clean and well stocked and maintained. We have enjoyed many activities while there. Since we are not all able-bodied we are somewhat limited, but this time we visited the NC Arboretum while there and enjoyed it so much. We want to go back. It closes at the first of September though - be aware. The restaurant selection (try the Verandah just down the hill from Lakeview) is wonderful and so is the shopping. There are falls nearby and other things like hiking to do whether you are very active or somewhat limited in that area. Mark provides info re: activities and restaurants as well as a TV guide to channels available, which w have found is hard to come by in most rentals! And the best thing of all is the view from the deck. We spend hours there - we feed the birds and eat our meals when possible and just hang out. Lakeview has become , truly, our home away from home. the Druids from SC, GA, and from AL (originally all from Atlanta)

                            My husband and I rented this cottage with friends for a weekend visit to Highlands for a wedding. The cottage was very comfortable, and had everything we needed. There was a nice selection of games and movies in the family room, and the kitchen had all the supplies necessary for cooking. All 3 bedrooms were very cozy, and the beds were super comfortable. The cottage was so lovely that we ended up staying in and cooking our first night! The cottage is very close to the restaurant On The Verandah, and Highlands is just a short drive away. The cottage was very clean, and the owners answered all of our questions and were easy to contact. I would highly recommend staying here if you’re visiting Highlands!

                            This was such a nice peaceful trip to Lakeview Cottage. The place is so neat and clean, thanks so much. Two days were enjoyed by two children and two grandchildren which was a delight. Several days were just enjoyed staying close by, enjoying the scenery, reading, crafting and especially watching the birds. We did ride into Franklin and Clayton which we always enjoy when we visit the area. This was our first time staying so near Highlands, such a beautiful little town! Of course we had to eat at the Dillard House...it was very good as usual with nice friendly staff! Thanks..we sure enjoyed our stay! And also thanks for working with me to change my reservations at the last minute! You made it easy!

                            Lakeview Cottage offers a wonderful location, central to all the amenities of Highlands and a short drive from Cashiers and Franklin. We found this cozy, comfortable home to offer the perfect blend of a mountain location and near-to-town convenience! The lake view was stunning and we enjoyed plentiful birdwatching. The cottage has all the amenities one could ask for and is well stocked with towels, blankets, games, movies, and more. Our family of five was very comfortable. We ate dinner in each night were thrilled with all the utensils and pots and pans available for use. We lacked nothing! Mark was so hospitable, offering information requested and calling to check in and see how we were settled. Clearly this place is run by professionals! We love the Highlands area and we will be back to stay in this lovely home as soon as we can!

                            My friends and I came back in August this year after staying at the cottage in Sept. of last year (see "Druid" comment in the reviews). We had another wonderful visit. Such a comfortable, well-maintained cottage - always clean and welcoming. We spend a great time together - this is a wonderful place to renew acquaintances and spend time with loved ones. We are friends of more than 50 years' duration and this has become our "go to" place to spend relaxing moments together, and no better place than on the back deck overlooking Lake Sequoyah! A glass of wine, some snacks and great companionship - who could ask for anything more? Mark is, as always, great to work with and so accommodating. If you go, remember to bring bird seed - the feeder on the porch is a great place to watch them congregate!! God willing, we will be back again next year, and hopefully for a longer visit. We always leave wishing for more time at Lakeview!!

                            This was our first visit to Highlands and we could not have been happier with our accomodations in the Lakeview Cottage. It was very clean, well stocked and came with a lovely view of Lake Sequoyah.It was very convenient to town, and numerous scenic attractions. We had a wonderful time, and will stay in the Lakeview Cottage next time we come.

                            So much beauty. So easy to relax and do nothing. We enjoyed our stay so much. It feels like coming home each time we visit. Already I can’t wait until next time!

                            The brilliant leaves, the crisp air and the charm of Lakeview, all made for the perfect vacation. Sitting on the deck overlooking the lake was a slice of heaven. The stars were so bright and full that you felt as if you can reach out and touch them.
