About the Property
House - 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 2 Baths - (Sleeps 8-12)
Have a real mountain experience at the newly renovated mountain home on 5+ acres (elevation 3500+**to get the cool mountain temperature you must be above 3000ft). Situated on the actual state line between Georgia and North Carolina (the creek is the state line) and 12 minutes from Highlands, you'll have all the space and privacy you could want. Be sure to watch the short video of the house and it's beautiful surroundings at the link tab at top of page.
All furnishings are new, 2008 (except for the antiques, of course), as is most everything except the charm and character of the original house.
The pine paneling and oak floors in the living room give added warmth to the fireplace and those cool summer nights. Original artwork throughout by the artist/owner and local artists.
Leave your cares behind as you settle into a true rural mountain setting- if you don't want the country club or subdivision, the Artist's House is the real thing!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Though born in North Carolina, I reside in Fl and try to spend as much time in these beautiful mountains as possible. I found the perfect location on 6 acres about two years ago and spent over a year completely renovating and updating the house. I am a photographer-publisher, and enjoy hiking, traveling, and of course, photography.
Why the Owner Chose Scaly Mountain, NC, USA:
It's simply beautiful and the town of Highlands is one of the most charming mountain towns I've found, with great resturants, art galleries and shopping. 3 waterfalls are within 15 minutes, the National Forest is a 10 minute walk past the Christmas tree farm, its peaceful and quiet beyond description.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is a lot of open land around my 5 acres and no noisy or nosy neighbors! This is a simple "cabin"- the great price reflects that but the lack of granite countertops and expensive furniture is more than made up by the peaceful feeling you get from being out of the subdivisions and into nature. As we have internet and amazon TV service can be spotty at times in the mountains. If your want to spend your time searching the web or gaming this might not be the vacation house for you. If you want nature right outside your door this is your place!
