House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths

Welcome to a place of enchantment. This unique cottage, a blend of the Old and the New offers the bliss of the mountains yet all the modern day essentials. Nestled on a ridge in the in-town Mirror Lake Neighborhood, it overlooks 6.5 Acres of wooded privacy from a wonderful 32 foot Living Porch (2/3 covered) with the enjoyment of Humming Birds, Owls, Stary Nights, and Total Peace. A fenced rear yard opens off the porch. It is an easy walk to Mirror Lake and just minutes away from downtown Main Street and all Highlands has to offer.

The Absolutely Fabulous Master Bedroom with Cathedral Ceilings is separately located upstairs encompassing an incredible vista and wintertime mountain view. The Master Bath with jetted tub is like being in the woods. The Guest Bedroom with Extra Length Twin Beds (which may be joined to make a King) and second Bath, are privately located on the Main Floor. A Charming Music Room, for those who love Piano, is a wonderful retreat also allowing space for additional sleeping (Coleman Mattress) and offers an adjacent Half Bath.

On those chilly evenings the wood burning stone fireplace adds the final touch of what we most seem to enjoy in our mountains. Welcome home !!

                                                                  This was an exceptional week end for us and this cozy cottage had it all. Every room is an invitation to relax and enjoy being tucked away in the Highlands, yet minutes from town. The owner has furnished the home with beautiful and very interesting things. The art work, the furniture, the vaulted ceilings and the huge stone fireplace. The home is stocked with essentials like hair dryer, paper towels, birdseed, and every kind of cooking utensil, all we had to do is buy the groceries. Covered front and back porches and complete privacy. We will definitely rent again. Thank you! Laura and Tom

                                                                  Enchanted Indeed!

                                                                  Chuck C.Vero Beach, FL

                                                                  This cottage is quaint and delightful. Peaceful, clean, beautifully equipped and our stay was a total joy. Close to town and many wonderful adventures await. June, the owner, went above and beyond. She sent us a full packet of information which made our trip so easy, and was so responsive and professional. Our only regret is that we did not have the opportunity to give her a big hug personally. The cottage is her own little piece of heaven and we are blessed that she shared it with us. Thank you, June! A little side note: I have just healed a broken arm and was able to practice piano for the first time this week. What a treat. We loved it all and highly recommend a little “June Enchantment.”

                                                                  Our warmest regards, Judy and Chuck C.

                                                                  Lisa R.Wilmington, NC

                                                                  I can certainly understand why the Enchanted Cottage is the Owner's little piece of heaven! This is definitely one of our favs and was extremely comfortable and cozy - exactly what we had hoped for. June has wonderful taste and her special decorating touches are seen throughout the cottage. Attention to detail makes all the difference! The location is perfect tucked away in the trees you feel so removed from everything, yet you are a short drive from the beautiful downtown area of Highlands. The upstairs master suite will not disappoint - it's like being in a treehouse. Beautiful morning sunrise and peaceful evening sunset views. Thanks for all of your area tips June. Your suggestions for area restaurants and hiking trails were very much appreciated and right on target. We loved Paoletti's, Canyon Kitchen, Wild Thyme, and Mountain Fresh Grocery. I had to make my annual stop for their wonderful balsamic vinegar. Our new favorite spot is Dusty's Superette. We stopped in a couple of times to satisfy a sweet tooth and to pick up items for a wonderful picnic lunch to enjoy during one of our hikes. They also have a very good wine selection. We loved traveling Hwy. 64 in either direction and found the drive alone to be part of the adventure. We explored Dry Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Whiteside Mountain (the hike is totally worth it!!), Whitewater Falls, Cullasaja Falls, and Glen Falls hike and Falls just to name a few. We found so many new things this trip and can't wait to return and continue the adventure. We will definitely stay at the Enchanted Cottage again. Thank you June!!

                                                                  Cozy, relaxing, cabin

                                                                  Timothy F.

                                                                  My wife and I had a wonderful stay at 240 Wyanoak. The location is perfect for a visit to Highlands. The owner, June, was very accommodating. The mountain house was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. We would definitely stay here again.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you so very much. You are certainly the perfect guests. It thrills me for you to share in my joy and I look forward to having you again. Cheers!!

                                                                  Peaceful, Enchanting Vacation

                                                                  Claire V.

                                                                  In an area of the country rife with log cabins that all look the same, this cottage was a breath of fresh air. Tucked just up a little mountain road in Highlands, it was even better than the photos.

                                                                  The quirky little place was impeccably clean, well-stocked and well-maintained. And June is great to work with—very accommodating and responsive.

                                                                  But the biggest draw of the cottage is the way the light plays throughout the rooms. Sunlight gently spills into the master bedroom in the morning. Warm up in the afternoon dappled sunlight of the music room. We had a wonderful time here, filled with fires, coffee, books and music. We enjoyed the cozy, private feel even though the property is on a street with other houses. The area is beautiful, and the home is convenient to everything. We also made friends with the squirrel on the back deck and the albino chipmunk who lives somewhere out front.

                                                                  Head into town for local coffee at Buck's or Mountain Fresh Grocery. We also loved some of the out-of-the-way places like Fressers Eatery. The last night we were there, we hiked up to Sunset Rock, which is definitely worth the view.

                                                                  Can't wait to come back here.

                                                                  My husband, pup and I enjoyed a wonderful long weekend at June's cabin (three nights). The owner, June, is very organized with all the details and made everything easy. The cottage is adorable, well-maintained and cozily decorated. It is very well stocked with all the basics you need (esp for cooking). The view is great and while the house is in a 'neighborhood', it feels very private with all the trees. The drive into the main part of Highlands is super quick so you can have the best of worth worlds for your trip. We hope to be back!

                                                                  Highlands has something for everyone. It is a 'real' town as well as a destination for weddings and other special occasions. Most often it is 10 degrees cooler than Atlanta, for example. One can enjoy fabulous boutique shopping, fine restaurants, outstanding 'arts', as well as the 'run of the mill', plus exquisite scenery, cool summer temperatures, hikings, waterfalls, peace and quiet. New Zip Line is only minutes away! Is there something more??
