Chipmunk Mountain Cottage is located between the towns of Cashiers and Glenville in western North Carolina's Great Smoky Mountains. Because the home is situated at an elevation of 3,800 ft., spring and summer temperatures are cool and comfortable. What's more, autumn's lush foliage are particularly spectacular in this part of the US. This charming, cozy - and recently updated - home is a perfect getaway for people who enjoy the serenity of its private setting, but also want to be close to grocery stores, beautiful waterfalls, farmers' markets, marinas, golf courses, hiking trails, antique shops, and more. In fact, it's only a short five-minute drive into downtown Cashiers and just 20 minutes to lovely Highlands, NC.

About David & Mary Scarborough
We feel fortunate to have lived in many wonderful places throughout our individual and collectives lives - Michigan, Connecticut, DC, Maryland, South Carolina, Arizona, Germany, England and more. And while we enjoyed them all, we fell in love with this area, and after spending summers here in NC and winters in AZ, we decided to pull up stakes in AZ and make this area our permanent home. But with five grown children with families of their own - all of whom love to visit the mountains (and us:>) - we simply needed a bigger year-round home. But we couldn’t bear to sell our little gem and over time we realized that we weren’t spending enough time in our home so recently decided to offer it to others - so they too, can experience the joy, peace, beauty, and fun this area has to offer. As such, we consider this property a home - not a rental. We want it to be just as comfortable for you as it is for us. We are independent business & marketing consultants - as well as writers/authors with three published books - and as long as we have computers and an Internet connection, we’re in business! So, we get to sit on our porch, listen to music and laughter from folks enjoying their time on Lake Glenville, breathe in the cool mountain air, watch critters, and view the lush foliage that comes with our deciduous rain forests area. We are lucky people!
David & Mary Scarborough purchased this House in 2006
Why David & Mary Scarborough chose Glenville
We looked at a lot of houses in the area before we bought - some were bigger, newer and had a few more amenities than this home. But we fell in love with the view and knew we could make it a very special place for ourselves and our family and friends. We hope you love it as much as we do!
What makes this House unique
We've given this home a lot of tender love and care because it's very important to us - and we recognize that it is to others as well. Our sophisticated, "shabby chic" home comes with a well-equipped kitchen for those who love to cook; beautiful, wool Persian rugs; wood floors; two king beds; a small gold-fish pond; huge covered deck with outdoor seating and fire table (great on cool mountain nights), and more.

Just about perfect!
We stayed a week at Chipmuck the last week of October and really enjoyed the cabin. A great size for 1 or 2 couples with 2 large bedroom both on main floor. Well eguiped kitchen and very comfortable feel all around. Master bed was great as so many times in rental homes, that can be an unwelcome surprise that can’t be seen in pictures. Wonderful deck area with great view. Minor issues were the hard to access the lighting of fire table and a pretty rough driveway. But neither were a big deal as the living quarters and view are wonderful. And easy access to Cashiers. Still rates 5 stars in our book!!!
This is a beautifully furnished house in a quiet neighborhood with an outstanding view of Lake Glenville. Nearby walks can take you through wooded areas, to a hidden waterfall, and to a nursery that grows dahlias which you can cut on an honor system. Within minutes you are in Cashiers for shopping and dining. The sweet spot of this rental is the covered deck with seating around a gas fire pit and the view of the lake. We will definitely return as long as the rental is available.
We're happy you had the opportunity to explore our neighborhood during your stay and discovered the dahlias. We hope you come back soon.

perfect peaceful getaway
The house was exactly as advertised - beautiful view of Lake Glenville from comfortable, clean and well-equipped home. The owners couldn't have been more responsive with almost immediate replies to any questions we had both before and during our stay. I would highly recommend this property - except for anytime that I'd like to return!!
Thanks for your kind words, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay and got the chance to explore one of our many beautiful waterfalls surrounding our local area.
Cashiers is a wonderful getaway and with fall just around the corner it's always exciting to see the colors come to the mountains. We hope you get a chance to visit us again soon.
We were very happy with the property! The deck with the fire pit was really nice after a day exploring. Enjoyed being very close to Signal Ridge Marina where we rented a pontoon boat for several hours. The house was great for our dog...gated porch and nice front yard with grass (he misses it already). We will be back.
We're glad you enjoyed your trip to the mountains and had the opportuning to explore Lake Glenville by boat, which is one of the many activities to do in and around Cashiers.
We hope you can visit with us again soon.
Well maintained and well equipped. Kitchen had it all. Beautiful view. Cozy and comfortable and outstanding deck.
Thanks, Beverly. It was wonderful meeting you and Pat and having you as our guest. I'm glad you had the opportunity to enjoy many of our mountains activities and we hope you can visit us again.

PS We saw more evidence of your furry friends in the front yard while cutting the grass yesterday :-)
The property and house we’re both very beautiful
Everything about this house was absolutely perfect. The beds were comfortable snd the location was perfect for what we wanted to do. I would highly recommend this house
We're glad the house allowed you to explore the mountains of Western NC and get a good nights sleep in our comfortable beds:)
We hope you get a chance to come and visit again soon - maybe this fall when the leaves begin to turn and paint the mountains with their vibrant colors.
Pure Enjoyment for Everyone! That's right, whether your ideal vacation is filled with peace and quiet; sports' adventures; lazy afternoons on the lake; spectacular mountain views; gourmet restaurants; hiking trails; renowned golf courses; antiquing; gem mining and more... this is the place for you!
