About Christen

My husband and I own this house with my in-laws. We also own the house next door, which we keep for personal use. We all live in Atlanta and my in-laws travel to Highlands almost every weekend.

Why Christen chose Highlands

We love this area of Highlands so much that we own two houses on this street - the other one is for personal use! We take great pride in having a rental property that is beautiful and welcoming for all our guests. From details like great linens to flowers on the table when you arrive, you will know instantly that this is no ordinary rental.

What makes this cabin unique

The owners of this cabin own another house on the street and visit almost every weekend. Being so close and visiting Highlands often allows us to keep this home in excellent condition for all our guests. Additionally, it allows us to repond very quickly should any need arise while you are staying with us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Words cannot describe how much we enjoyed staying at your cabin. We hate to leave! We truly loved being here—close enough to downtown Highlands, but far enough away for a quiet, relaxing evening on the porch with a nice dinner and glass of wine.

Thanks for the wonderful memories.

Property not up to expectations

  • 2 of 5

The person(s) who cleans and sets up the house did a poor job. The kitchen rug was dirty. The flatware in the drawer was not clean.Some glasses were not clean. Nonstick fry pans were scratched, one was dirty. The plastic spatula was so damaged it was practically unusable and impossible to clean. The kitchen blinds over the sink were dusty/dirty. A kitchen sponge for the sink was so dirty it should have been trashed. The setting on the refrigerator was so cold it froze eggs. Also the refrigerator was so noisy it sounded like an AC compressor running inside the house. There was no dishwasher soap in the kitchen... glad we brought our own soap and sponge.

The second night we were there the heating system failed when the outside temperature was in the 40's.

There were bugs and dust on the guest room bedside table. The bedside rug in the Master bedroom was bathmat quality and was slippery on the hardwood floor. Towel hanging in the master bath had a hole in it. And the second bath does not deserve to be called a full bath. It contains a toilet, a lavatory, a floor drain and a hand held shower head that would wet everything in the room if it was actually used as a shower. The owner instruction is to "wipe the room dry with "rags" after each use."

And, the website states that they pamper their guests with fresh flowers in the house...NO flowers...

We have used VRBO frequently in the past, and with better results. There is some risk as to what you will get...The place is really private, quiet, in the woods,2 miles from Main street.

Owner's Response: Our cabin is family owned and managed. We pride ourselves on offering our guests a nice, comfortable home away from home -- a place where we would want to stay. We have been renting this cabin for over 5 years and we have received only excellent reviews -- including reviews from this summer. Not one guest has mentioned ripped linens, dirty dishes, bugs, etc. That said, we will look into these issues and make sure they fixed for future guests. This guest mentions that the heat went out in the home when the outside temp was in the 40s. What he fails to mention is that the heat was addressed and fixed within several hours of being reported. Our listing is truthful and thorough, including accurate pictures of the property and the bathrooms. The bathroom this guest mentions was designed like many baths on ships and in Europe. While it might not be the ideal bathroom for some guests, it is in fact a full bathroom with a toilet, sink and shower. We are very sorry we did not meet this guests expectations. We will look into all the issues listed and address them as needed.

Short Summer Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I left the hot city and arrived in the cool, comfortable climate of Highlands, NC. Directions to the cabin were provided by our host and were concise and complete, including landmarks. The drive down the lane to the cabin is, itself, a pleasure: rhododendron in full bloom, passing the beautiful waterfall. The cabin was clean and comfortable. The screened porch was a delight, especially since it rained during most of our stay. Nothing like breathing in the mountain air in the cool rain! We visited some of the local waterfalls: spectacular! We enjoyed the stay immensely and plan to visit this cabin again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this amazing review. There is nothing like the fresh mountain air after it rains. We are so glad you enjoy the screened porch to it's fullest! We look forward to having you as our guests again in the future!

Perfect anniversary week

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent our honeymoon in the Highlands/Cashiers area ten years ago so it seemed fitting to return to celebrate our tenth anniversary.

We loved the walk/drive past the waterfall daily. The cabin was perfect. Plenty of room to cook and options to relax. We loved mornings in the sunroom and meals on the screened in porch.

Being a few minutes to Highlands was perfect for shopping, hiking and eating.

We hope to be back before another ten years go by, and this cabin will be our first choice.
