About the property

Cabin Bascom - Walk to town!

Walk through the 'Mahogany Doors' into your own world of natural beauty designed by Ross Markley, renowned sculptor and gardenscape designer in collaboration with art enthusiast, Kathy Hillman. Located doors away from the Bascom Arts Center, we invite you to experience this inspiring and rejuvenating retreat located at the head of the Greenway Trail and steps away from the Bascom.

This thoughtfully renovated 2 bedroom/2 bath cabin features a designer kitchen fitted with granite, walnut, stainless steel and every attention to detail. The open floor plan to the great room encourages great times with family, friends or that special someone.

A well appointed master suite is centered around an impressive double sided, tumbled marble fireplace... perfect for a cozy read in the five foot bay window, a relaxing jacuzzi bath, or a restful sleep on the king sized bed donned with Egyptian cotton/Bamboo sheets ... we say the most romantic suite in Highlands, despite the flat screen! The guest room wears red well with double bed, TV/DVD and is paired with its own bath containing a slate walk-in shower and art vanity.

Hardwood floors and pickled spruce shiplap walls throughout, stacked stone fireplace and 42 inch flat panel TV in the living area. The vibe is light, open and airy yet the cabin is filled with eclectic furnishings and purposeful art.

While surrounded by all that the interior offers, you are beckoned outside to a peaceful playground. Sip your morning beverage at the cafe table on the deck while watching the birds and ever unfolding garden. Sit on the reflecting bench and listen to the soothing waters of the eternal fountain. Enjoy a Highlands afternoon or evening on the lower deck around the granite firepit.

If you can tear yourself from Cabin Bascom, you are conveniently located to all the world class amenities that the Highland area has to offer.

Perfect Highlands Rental

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away from Main Street but only a very short walk to the hustle and bustle of downtown, this cabin is the best of both worlds in beautiful Highlands. The property is located directly across from a trail head that connects to other trails in the area, or choose to head to Main Street for coffee, shopping, and restaurants.

The cabin had plenty of room for two couples yet felt cozy enough to be a true home away from home. I highly recommend this property as it is everything you will want while visiting the North Carolina mountains!

Perfect getaway in Highlands

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect cabin for a Highlands getaway. It is clean, updated, well maintained, updated, and very comfortable. There is a trail directly across from the front door that will lead you right into Highlands- perfect for a morning walk into town for a coffee etc. Can't say enough nice things, would stay again in a heartbeat.

We loved everything about our stay at Cabin Bascom! Beautiful cabin and perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom charming cabin is very comfortable for 4 people. The furnishings are absolutely beautiful, beds are fabulous, and wooded views are gorgeous. What a plus to find a trail and babbling brook just across the street! We loved hiking in the wilderness, as well as visiting the many nearby shops and restaurants on Main Street. The musical theater shows at the Highlands Playhouse Theater were incredible! We had a GREAT week at Cabin Bascom!!!

Fantastic location, beautiful grounds, well appointed interior

  • 4 of 5

This is a wonderful, clean, comfortable cottage/cabin. The bed was super comfortable. The kitchen was such a pleasure to cook in. The fireplace in the master bedroom and bathroom was a really sweet touch. Melissa was lovely to chat with as well as her sister LuLu, who graciously steamed a dress for me. (I couldn’t find the iron in the cabin.) The whirlpool bathtub was brand new and a real treat , especially after walking to town or down the nearby hiking paths. Thank you for all the hospitality and thoughtful touches. ( I saw chipmunks playing near the cabin!) Didn’t want to leave...really hope to be back!

Fantastic little cabin almost in town, yet very quiet

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Cabin Bascom for about five days, during which time there were almost blizzard conditions, making driving inadvisable for 24 hours. It was no matter, because we just put on our boots and down jackets and walked to town! We really enjoyed the great cabin. We are disappointed that the cabin does not have central air, because we usually come to Highlands in the fall, when the weather can actually be quite warm (and we like to sleep cold). There is a wall unit A/C in the living room, but no A/C to the bedrooms. We would absolutely stay here every trip if there was central A/C!
