Property description

Located just minutes from the prestigious resort village of Highlands,and just a short distance from Cashiers, this fabulous vacation cottage is playfully named 'ON THE ROCKS' because of it's siting directly on the banks of the rushing waters and shoals of Big Creek. Listening to the wonderful gushing water sounds below, one can relax on the upper or lower wrap around screened in porch boasting panoramic views up and down this river- like creek.Or, meander down stone steps to the banks of this ideallic spot, curl up in an Adirondeck chair sipping your favorite beverage, or rock in the large size hammock while watching your children/grandchildren splash in the waters or try to catch a rainbow trout! The old grist mill just upstream completes the visual ambience. For some playful adventure, grab a raft/flotation device (provided by Owner)off the lower porch and float downstream.Complete the end of a perfect day by gathering house guests for cocktails or children to roast "some mores" around the rustic natural FIREPIT.
