4 minutes to Highland's Main Street.
It's S'more fun at Acorn Falls Cottage, where rustic meets Ballard chic. As one of our renters said, "We loved everything about this cottage and our vacation. It felt like stepping into a home renovated by Chip and Joanna Gaines. The furniture is beautiful, the beds are comfortable, the kitchen is fully equipped with brand new cookware, dishes, and glassware, and the cottage is beautifully decorated, inside and out."
This 1900's historic cottage has just been professionally designed and completely renovated in 2018, while keeping a lot of the original aspects of the property which enhances the beauty and character of the cottage. If you're an art lover, Acorn Falls Cottage won't disappoint, as I have curated an art gallery of original art from local artist.
Nestled in the woods but close to downtown and all of the amenities of Highlands, it is a perfect place to stay. The furnishings are chosen with a designer's touch throughout, with an eye for comfort and beauty. The kitchen has all one needs to prepare a full meal or just cocktails and appetizers.

Everything is top notch from the kitchen with white quartz counter tops and farmhouse sink, Kitchen Aid appliances and includes a dishwasher, garbage disposal, Kuerig coffee machine, and all the cookware necessary to make a gourmet meal.
Take advantage of enjoying the peaceful mornings on the swinging daybed, surrounded by pillows and warm fuzzy throws. Or, sip & swing on one of the two hanging Serena & Lilly chairs on the back porch. Hanging in this space is highly recommended in the evenings, as the twinkling emerson lights create a heart-warming firefly effect.
There is a clothes washer and dryer, a gas grill out back, as well as a phone charging station, a smart speaker/home assistant for music/information & yes, we have high-speed WIFI!

Highlands is the premier mountain destination in the Southeast. Lined with shopping, dining, museums and galleries, the bustling mountain village centering around Main Street is straight from a Norman Rockwell painting. At 4,118 feet, it’s one of the few temperate rain forests in North America, bringing botanists and nature lovers from all over the world. Highlands is also a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. With an abundance of opportunities for biking, hiking, horseback riding, tubing, canoeing, fly fishing, and whitewater rafting, adventure-seekers will not find a more beautiful backdrop.
