Property description

Highwoods has been developed to nurture your spirit and provide everything you will need for the ultimate relaxing get-a-way. The floor plan is ideal for a romantic getaway, a family reunion, or a tranquil retreat for groups up to eight.

This unique mountain cabin, I nestled on the side of a mountain with teriffic views. It is situated on 10 acres, about half of which is landscaped in a garden setting with three small ponds fed by an underground mountain spring and our very own hand-carved totem pole. The balance has been left in its natural state.

You will be ideally located for day trips to all of the many things to do in Asheville and most everything else that Western North Carolina offers to visitors. We are located just 14 miles - about a 20 minutes drive - from Asheville. Add another 5 minutes to get to the Biltmore Estate or the Blue Ridge Parkway.

When you return to Highwoods at the end of the day, you arrive in another world. You are taken away by only the sound of water falling, the beauty and the power of nature. You are filled with a sense of profound peace that many consider to be of a spiritual nature. The art and décor at Highwoods has been collected from around the world, which we think you will find both interesting and inviting. We want you to feel that this is truly YOUR mountain vacation home, here in the heart of the Blue Ridge! Most of our guests do feel exactly that way. Curl up in front of the wood burning fireplace, sit on the deck with a good book, unwind in the hot tub … whatever your choice, treat yourself to the perfect escape.

Winter rates (Jan 3-Mar 27; Nov 6-19, Dec 1-18): 2 night minimum for $615; weekly $1335.
Basic Rates (Mar 28-Sept 27): 3 night minimum for $900; weekly $1630.
Leaf Season (Sep 28-Nov 10) & Holidays:4 night minimum during leaf season for $1285; $1815 weekly; 1 week minimum for holidays (Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years)
