Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10 which includes sleeper/sofa in living ro)

Casa Sueños (House of Dreams) is a magical escape into a Fairy Tale setting. This cedar log home is surrounded by woods.

Every morning birds will sing you wake up songs. Gorgeous wood peckers can be seen from the wrap-around deck. The sun rises through the trees into the master bedroom.

At night, the stars shine through the sky light. There is no more romantic setting... yet it's great to share with lots of family and friends as well.

Casa is just 10 minutes from the beautiful Main St. in Highlands, yet it's cozy and tucked away in the woods. You will absolutely love it and return often. Guaranteed!

About Karl Ellins

My friend Patricia San Pedro and and I share this piece of heaven that we call Casa Sueños. Patricia and I were wandering down Main Street in Highlands and got curious about what the area had to offer. We walked into a realtor and asked what they had in mountain log cabins with fireplaces. Casa Sueños was the first property they showed us and it was love at first sight. We didn't plan to buy but we left the proud owners and have been loving it ever since. My daughter Sylvia, shown next to her very proud dad, has grown up with many great trips to the cabin with the beauty and charm that is Highlands.

Karl Ellins purchased this cabin in 2005

Why Karl Ellins chose Smoky Mountains

Getting up to the cabin is quick and easy for us with a 2 hour flight into Atlanta from Miami and then an easy drive to Highlands. As easy as it is to get to it seems a million miles away once you get there.

What makes this cabin unique

We have the best of both worlds with Main Street less than 10 minutes away and the solitude of the cabin. Highlands is a great little town with lots to offer including great restaurants, shopping, art, culture, all with a friendly atmosphere.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Highlights:

-walked into a very clean, fully stocked cozy cabin

-5 hours of white, powdery snow fell during which our family had a blast throwing snowballs and relaxing in the hot tub

-Glen Falls was spectacular! Our family enjoyed it right before it began to rain!!

-Whiteside Mountain day after it snowed was a winter wonderland with a breathtaking view!

-At Mountain Fresh Grocery we loved the freshly made donuts and gourmet burgers

-the Bear theme and all the decorative accents in the cabin were adorable!!!

Truly a Casa de Sueños!!!

Thank you Dr. Ellins and Melanie! You are a blessing to a family that really needed a heavenly vacation!!!!

God bless you!!!

Great stay thanks to great property!

  • 5 of 5

Really appreciated cada sueños! It was great for the two families in our party. We had a ball cooking, hanging out in the porch (and in the hot tub), and having long chats in the warm and cozy living area. Beautiful forrest views from every room. Close enough to Highlands to go frequently. Thanks for a great stay.

All the five star reviews were spot on.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for my husband, me and our son and his family. We had plenty of space for us all. Everything we could have needed was there. It was extremely comfortable and user friendly. I appreciated the cleanliness. We could plainly see the owner cared about the comfort of his guests and is very easy to talk to. The icing on the cake was watching the total eclipse in such beautiful surroundings. Thank you Karl.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will definitely be returning

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very spacious and nice. The kitchen had everything you would ever need including a coffee bean grinder! We loved the wrap around porch! The beds were very comfortable and the hot tub was a nice way to unwind. The cabin is close to town, but nicely secluded for privacy. We enjoyed listening to the woods wake up every morning while enjoying our coffee! We will definitely be returning.

A great cabin nestled in the woods and 10 minutes to an incredible town.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great and Well equipped. Karl made sure our experience was the best; Great communication. Loved the new appliances in the kitchen. The layout of the cabin was great. Large bedrooms and plenty of room for the 6 of us to spread out. The wrap around porch and chairs were suburb too. Tons of towels and extras. Usually the main necessities and conveniences are sparse in the previous cabin's we've stayed at.

Quiet and Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cabin has a rustic feel, but is very clean with nice amenities. It has an awesome hot tub and porch for relaxing. The cabin is in a very quiet setting, but is close to town for dining and activities. Would highly recommend!
