Highlands house description

This three bedroom, two bath cabin-style home is in a great location between Dillard, Georgia and Highlands, North Carolina. Only 15 minutes from either town, this vacation home is also just five minutes from Sky Valley Golf Resort.

Perched on two acres, at a cool comfortable 3900 foot elevation, above beautiful Blue Valley. (ELEVATION is the key to being comfortable in the mountains in the summer.) The cabin features breathtaking 150° long range views and spectacular sunrises. Weather permitting, the lights of Greenville, South Carolina, some 80 miles away, can be seen at night. You won't have to hike or drive to a spectacular view - it's right there on your deck.

The fully-equipped home is designed to sleep six in comfort. Great views from every room in the house. Plenty of windows and French doors keep the house light and airy. Natural oak floors, maple cabinetry, pine ceilings and trim give it a warm cabin feel. We think you will be very pleased with the furnishings and decor. No Smoking Inside, No pets allowed.

We have been visiting the mountains every chance we had for five or six years, renting homes, cabins and motels. This house was built, located and equipped with those experiences in mind. Our goal is that all of our guests have a comfortable and enjoyable vacation.

For more information about rental terms and policies please visit our web page (see below under 'Links to more Information'). Here you will also find more information about activities and attractions. There are also quite a few pictures and informative area website links.

          Suitability

          • Not Suitable For Children:

            Due to safety concerns and liability we would discourage guests younger than 8 yrs. old. High retaining walls, decks and the general steepness of the property in places would make it hazardous for young children. I would not consider this property child friendly at all unless they are of the age and maturity level that they can be on their own. There are also alot of antique furnishings that I have personally restored. If you feel your children can function in this environment then they are welcome. Please read your rental agreement thoroughly. ...moreless

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2000

              Why the Owner Chose Highlands:
              If you live in the Southeast this is simply one of the easiest to get to high elevation areas in the mountains. Not only is it the closest but it has the added benefit of being one of the nicest areas in the mountains. Anything that you would find in the mountains you can find right here. The exception being if you want to go snow skiing I would not look at anything south of Maggie Valley. My wife and I looked for over two years for a location and we always came back to this area. It was the standard and it couldn't be beat. It simply offered the most bang for the buck which makes it a great bargain for you in the area.
