About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Highlands Hideaway is the absolute perfect if you are looking to be in town! Main Street shopping, Civic Center, Mirror Lake, Bascom, Old Edwards Inn.....it's all right there.

Bringing the family and friends…so do we. This home is perfect with two bedrooms down stairs and two bedrooms upstairs. When it is time to go to bed, you have your privacy with the split plan. King bed in master and two twins in the second bedroom upstairs. A queen bed with private half bath and a two twin bedroom downstairs. Yes, the master has a TV….but your in the mountains, turn it off.

Do you like too cook…how about doing it in a stainless steel kitchen with granite. I know your coming to the mountains, but with this home you can enjoy the amenities while still experiencing the old highlands charm. We kept the wood floors, the mahogany cabinets and the wormy chestnut paneled walls. The plumbing, electrical, appliances and granite are all new, but you will still know you are in the mountains.

Do you like are large living space? There is plenty of room in this home. Our living room has plenty of seating and even room for a game table, perfect for gatherings by the wood burning fireplace. Yes there is a TV with cable just incase you have a rainy day during your stay.

Outside? There is a garage and two driveways incase you have guest that need parking. There is also a playhouse out back for our girls, located next to the campfire pit. There is even a horse hitching post if you bring one with you!

The view? You are surrounded by natural beauty. The property is lined with rhododendron for privacy, when you look out the front or the back or sit on one of the porches, you are surrounded by green. Totally Beautiful.

Our past guest have been wedding parties, family reunion guest, retirement gatherings, large families and couples just on a romantic getaway.

You can rent with the rental company or you can save with the owners, just send us an email.

With this location you can't go wrong.

About The Owner

Mountain and Beach family who currently live in Tuscaloosa Alabama because that is where the road took us. We have traveled to various places in the Smokey Mountains and have found the Highlands to be our favorite. This will be where we choose to live and play with grand kids one day.

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Highlands

This is a four bedroom property that has been visited by many large families, wedding parties, and even honeymooners wanting a mountain retreat. The home is a split living plan so it accommodates two families nicely and allows for common areas in the kitchen and great room. It is also great to put the kids upstairs and leave the adults downstairs to continue the games and fun that can only be experienced in the mountains. This home has all new amenities but kept a lot of the old highlands charms. So, it's cozy and comfortable but current and up to date. The outside is important in the mountains. You can drive or walk to everything that is awesome in Highlands. There is a fire pit area outside and even a play house for the kids. Go to one end of the street and feed the ducks or to the other end and take the green way to the Bascom or Main Street. The civic center is right there too! There is non covered deck to see the stars, and a covered deck to enjoy when it is raining. PERFECT!

What makes this house unique

Walk to town, drive to town, on a city street, not a dirt road. Close to water, close to town, close to civic center, close to greenway, close to bascom, close to old edwards....did we mention 4 bedrooms, fire pit, play house, and plenty of parking for the large family!

What a great time and place to stay with family. Owner was kind a gracious with setting up a holiday surprise. What a great location, we walked to bascom for art project and to Main Street for dinner. Perfect walk with perfect weather. Everything is so green!

Right There

  • 5 of 5

Well, you said it was a great location. We enjoyed a daily walk to town for coffee, shopping and then lunch. The area is so peaceful and quiet. We walked towards mirror lake often too, and even fed the ducks. We can't wait to come back to enjoy the Highlands.

So cute

  • 5 of 5

We go to the mountains every time we can. You never know what you will get during spring rain season. This house looks like the owners live nearby and take very good care of it. We loved having the central heat and air when it pored cats and dogs and everything felt damp, we were nice and dry inside!
