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 Highlands

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


-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!!!

Extremely well stocked, quiet, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

The overall experience was great. The area is private but only 5 Minutes from Main in The lovely city of Highlands. Furnishings are clean, comfortable, and give a home like feeling. We loved the bear motif in the furnishings.

The only caution would be the very steep driveway if there was icy weather. Our AWD handles it fine in dry weather.

Perfect Place to Getaway but close to Highlands NC

  • 5 of 5

The cabin has everything you need and laid out well. The Kitchen was well stocked. Karl, was easy to get in touch with and very customer oriented. We enjoyed the fireplaces, the hot tub and the solitude. The cabin is definitely isolated which makes for a nice peaceful environment. I couldn't imagine anyone coming and not enjoying every second.

Perfect Girls-Getaway Location

  • 5 of 5

President's Weekend is a scheduled Girls'-Getaway for 8 close friends and neighbors. Casa Sueños (House of Dreams) was a perfect place. Close to the mountain town of Highlands, NC, the house offered plenty of room, amenities, and a peaceful location to escape. We had a wonderful time. The cabin was inviting, warm, clean, comfortable and so beautiful. It's definitely one of my favorites!

all that and more

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting cabins in the mountains over the Christmas week for years, very rarely is everything as advertised, or in this case, better than advertised. This cabin is very highly rated, and for good cause, it is everything people say it is and more - I truly have little to add other than the entire experience from start to finish was great. It was definitely one of the best stocked cabins we have ever stayed at and well prepared for guests. The owners are great, easy to reach and happy to assist in any way possible. Great place that we expect to get back to - something we very rarely do :)

Outstanding family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time at Casa Suenos. It is impeccably clean with everything you could ever need. We relaxed and cooked and the kids even completed their first 300 piece puzzle. The babysitter referred to us was amazing and allowed the parents to have a nice dinner out. I must say the kids had a very hard time parting with the Smoky the Bear in the bunk room. He was a huge hit. Thank you for all of your help and accommodating. We will most certainly be back!
