Secluded & Peaceful
We had great time with family, the property overlooks the mountains and there is creek on the property we loved it. We had great time.
Quaint barn along a beautiful stream. Easy driving access to Lake Glenville, cashiers and highlands. The waterfall at High Falls off Lake Glenville was beautiful. I wish we could give it more stars, but the entire first floor is very moldy. We cut our trip short due to the overwhelming mildew smell. I think it is a moisture issue under the barn, aggravated by no AC (don’t need it for cooling, rather removing humidity.) Maybe it wouldn’t be as bad in the winter with dry heat?
so sorri to hear that ..it is first I am hearing ... we stayed last week and had no problem whatsoever ... but , very sorri to hear about your stay ... we will install another dehumidifier .. and make triple sure it does not ever happen again ..we never have had this problem in over 8 years !
would be happy to give you a free couple nights if you would ever consider another stay ..
We enjoyed our stay at Da Barn a great deal. At first, we were a little surprised that it was right off the road, but truthfully, once we were there for a bit, you really didn't think about it again. The finishings are beautiful, and the cabin was immaculately clean. The general location was fantastic. We spent time in Sapphire, Cashiers, and Highlands while staying here, and they were all very convenient. This cabin is very close to Lake Glenville. We did not take advantage of the public beach but did hike down to the waterfall on High Falls Trail--it was gorgeous. We also enjoyed seeing the chipmunks each morning around the back porch!
The open loft and lack of privacy in that bathroom did not bother us--we were all family, but that may be a problem if traveling with a mixed group!
Great renovated barn in an amazing location!
Da Barn was fantastic! It was perfect for our family of four (2 boys ages 10 and 8). Amazing kitchen, ability to open windows and doors (with screens) and the cool loft with open bathroom and sky lights you can open suited us fine (although I can see this not working out well if you require more privacy). The property has a hammock, fire pit and creek running through it. Mark was so nice and helpful meeting us there as we arrived and offering suggestions on what to do in the area. We were here from Florida to hike. The house is located in a beautiful area. We loved how close we were to Gorges State Park and the famous Rainbow Falls, as we went 3 times! We had a great time finding other local hikes in and around Cashiers and Highlands if this is your thing.....both beautiful summits with wild blueberries and water falls with swimming holes. There is a big recreational lake just a few miles from the house for swimming, boating, fishing. We didn’t get to this, but driving around the lake to get “home” was beautiful. Cashiers is adorable and artsy, there is a great farmer’s market type shop with home made pies and fresh local produce and a great progressive little coffee house. There is also a big supermarket conveniently located nearby among other things. We mostly cooked at Da Barn due to the gourmet kitchen and beautiful stove. There are beautiful big laundry machines for use and the 2 other bedrooms offered privacy and quiet solitude. The meadow that the house sits on is quite close to a main road. It’s not a particularly busy area, but may not have worked well for me if my kids were younger and wandering alone. The house also sits fairly close to two other houses (friendly neighbors!) which is not shown in the photos, so is not totally secluded in the woods. We were quite happy with our stay and would definitely return! If you chose to explore this area of North Carolina the incredible natural beauty of the area will not disappoint.
Nice place but needs improving
Bathroom in the loft should have privacy. Could not comfortably use that toliet.
Because there was high humidity levels while we there, mold was detected in the upholstery. Lawn needed mowing.
LOVED our stay!
We absolutely loved our stay at “Da Barn”! Everything you need to have a peaceful getaway! The neighbors were friendly and very helpful with recommendations of things to do in the area! We would absolutely come back to stay again!
cashiers /higlands north carolina is one of the most scenic , beautiful areas in the united states ..and all year round visits offer lifetime memories '
