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.

Perfect mountain cottage
Just returned home from a relaxing impromptu trip with my wife to the NC mountains. Staying at this cabin for two nights was an absolute treat. My wife wouldn't stop gushing about the cute and cozy style of the cottage which had everything you could need for a mountain getaway. The view from the back deck of the lake was fantastic and the location was very close to Cashiers, Highlands and some nearby waterfall hikes. Great if you wanted to get out and be active or just stay in and relax by the fireplace. I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay or a better host to deal with. David provided clear instructions on everything the well-appointed cottage had to offer. We couldn't recommend this place enough! Loved it, and hope to return someday soon.
Thanks Matt, we are so happy you had a great mountain weekend get-a-way.
We too love sitting on the deck and taking in the wonderful views of the lake and mountains - it's what inspires us to share this experience with others.
It was a pleasure having you and your wife.

Wonderful location and accomodations
Peaceful and relaxing
We loved sitting on the porch with the firepit and looking at the lake. It was so relaxing and peaceful.
Absolutely loved this house. Very comfortable, great setting, ideal location for Cashiers. Great deck and porch. Will definitely rent this house again.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us and sharing your experience.
Cashiers is a wonderful vacation destination with an abundance of activities.
It's nice to know our place can feel like a home away from home.
All the best,
David and Mary
Charming and comfortable home in a beautiful setting.
Our family of four had a wonderful time staying at this home while exploring the surrounding area. The owners have really put a lot of extra thought and care into making their guests have a comfortable experience. It’s a lovely home. Thank you!
Thank you for your very kind words. Both Mary and I are glad you had a fun time visiting Cashiers and the surrounding area - it's one of the reasons we choose to live here.
Thank you for staying with us and we hope you will come back and visit again.

Beautiful home, great location, amazing views! We enjoyed every bit of our stay. Wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you for the perfect “home away from home” for a few days. The welcome goodies were very much appreciated as well. We hope to be back soon!
Thank you for staying with us this past weekend and your wonderful comments.
I know it was a little cold this past weekend -
I noticed the pond was still frozen over yesterday - but winter in the mountains next to a cozy fire is a great get away.
We look forward to you visiting with us again soon.
