"We made our first trip to Wright Cottage to celebrate Thanksgiving 2013 in the mountains! Couldn't have asked for a better place for our family to gather! Lisa called to check on us and to wish us a happy Thanksgiving! What a comfortable, pretty house. You couldn't ask for a better location! It is situated between Highlands and Cashiers, NC. Within minutes you can be to restaurants, hiking at Whiteside Mountain, waterfalls, etc. We enjoyed the house and the location so much that we came back with friends in October 2014! We had a wonderful time again! Thanks for sharing your lovely house with us!"

"This top floor condo, conveniently located halfway between Cashiers and Highlands, has views that are simply breathtaking. There are two balconies, one that overlooks the mountains both short and long range and another screened porch with a fireplace. Each morning we went back and forth with our coffee enjoying the warmth of the fire then appreciating the incredible views. We repeated the same thing each evening with wine in place of coffee. We were instantly relaxed while soaking up the quiet and serenity.
The 3 bedroom, 3 bath unit is tastefully furnished, uncluttered and very comfortable. The living room has a huge flat screen TV on one side and opposite is the floor to ceiling stacked-stone, gas fireplace. The kitchen is bright, clean, spacious and well stocked with appliances, cookware, bake ware and dishes. For those wishing to eat out, there are many very good restaurants in Highlands, some even pet friendly. The owners provided a comprehensive list for us.
We purchased the temporary membership in order to indulge in the amenities. The clubhouse is gorgeous and has more outstanding views of the mountains and the golf course. The staff was friendly and most accommodating. The food was excellent. My husband played a round of golf and is still talking about how magnificent the course was. He took at least 50 photos during his game.
Highlands Cove Realty manages this property for the owners and they are extraordinary. They coordinated everything to make our visit carefree. We were so grateful for the little extras the management provided. We arrived too late to shop and there was coffee and condiments arranged by the coffee pot. They left starter supplies of dish soap, dishwasher and laundry detergent. There were also beautiful toiletries in the bathrooms just in case we forgot anything. I have rented many properties over the years and have never stayed in a rental where so much attention was paid to little details. Highlands Cove has a neat app that you can download on your smart phone or tablet that has all sorts of information available before, during and after your stay.
Overall, I cannot say enough about this vacation. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, the surroundings and the great service provided by Highlands Cove Realty and the Old Edwards Club. The condo owners have done a wonderful job with this rental property. We are already planning to return."

"Our family stayed in this beautifully decorated, well equipped home duing Thanksgiving week. The views from this home on top of Big Bear Pen Mountain are spectacular. There is so much room in the dining room, we were all able to eat together comfortably. The Murray's were so helpful and pleasant to work with in making this a very memorable holiday family vacation. The location is very conveniently located, close to town and easy driving up to the top of the mountain. Driving up and down the mountain was even easy with the 1" snowfall we woke up to on Thanksgiving morning! The Grands loved it! Hiking or long easy walks were right out the door. The wood burning fire place warmed the living room every night. It was so roomy and cozy too! Thank you Ben and Melissa for sharing your piece of heaven. We loved it."
