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.

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.

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.
Owner purchased this House in 2010
Why Owner chose Mirror Lake
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!

Not my best rental experience
The house was very cold when we arrived and we had some difficulty getting the heaters going.
The house itself had some excellent features, especially the newer addition but because it was very cold when we were there, the two bedrooms in the old part, which had no heat in them, were probably 40 degrees that second night that it was difficult to sleep. The only heat for that area was one gas wall heater in the kitchen area. The house is attractive on the outside, large and comfortable inside and very close to the main street of Highlands. The two bathrooms in the older part were in need of some updating, especially the old bathtub/shower. We were not comfortable using it so we all used the upstairs shower. We were supposed to run the dishwasher before we left but there was no dishwasher soap. In fact, there were very few amenities, compared to all the other places I have rented. I hope the owner will understand that I am not trying to be negative, only honest. The driveway up to the porch steps where you enter the house was not easy to navigate because it was not paved, was on a slant and had loose stones and soft material to walk on. Again, the newer part of the house was very well done and attractive. I am sure that our opinions were colored by the intense cold in the older part of the house. This could be a lovely rental house with just a few changes. Should those be made, we would certainly stay there again.
Sorry Carla about your experience. There is new central heat and air system in the entire home. The directions were on the hospitality app as well as the welcome message. You were actually using the back up heat system that is there to ensure the guest have a great experience. Sorry too that you did not enjoy the claw foot tub that was saved and restored during the remodel. We tried painlessly to keep some of the old Highlands charm. It actually has all new plumbing and fixturing that is made to look old. The driveway with river rock pathways is new too, only a week old. Wish you would have called, we would have taken care of you! Glad you enjoyed the new addition.
It was a really nice home and close to everything we needed.
Perfect mountain getaway
Our family of 7 stayed there 11/3-11/5. We had plenty of room. The porches were great for sitting and enjoying the beautiful fall foliage. Only a minute from downtown and close to everything. Will stay again.
Thanks for staying with us!
Very easy to work with.
Thanks for a great stay in the mountains....
Glad to have you. Safe travels
