About the owner: We live in Atlanta and love to come to our home in North Carolina to get away from the summer heat and traffic. The fall and spring are beautiful times of year. We love to keep the fireplace burning in the cold winter months. Unfortunately, we cannot spend as much time in our mountain cottage so we enjoy sharing it with others who love the beauty and peace of the mountains.
Why the Owner Chose Holly Forest: We first visited the Cashiers - Highlands region 30 years ago and have visited as often as we can. We found this house and knew this would be a wonderful place to spend our free time. We hope to be here full time when we both retire.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The Sapphire/Cashiers/Highlands area is unique in its beauty, peace and so many outdoor activities to enjoy. The great restaurants, art galleries and shopping are the added bonus for those who like to spend time indoors too.
