Property description

Come enjoy a beautiful mountain home in fabulous Highlands, North Carolina! This newly renovated 3 bedroom 2 bath house has a large, updated kitchen and dining area as well as a unique loft (that kids love) with a full bed. Beautiful wood burning fireplace is perfect for the cool evenings in Highlands. Nestled in the rhododendron and hemlocks, this mountain hideaway offers lots of privacy and a large porch that is perfect for outdoor dining and feeling close to nature. The cottage is conveniently located within walking distance to downtown Highlands (~1/2 mile), while the picturesque Mirror Lake and the fabulous new Bascom Arts Center are just down the road.

Why stay in a hotel when you can have all this?:
• Fully equipped kitchen with new appliances and beautiful granite countertops
• Spacious, open floor plan with vaulted ceilings, knotty pine walls, and wood floors throughout
• Large deck nestled in the trees, perfect for enjoying cool summer evenings, has table with six chairs
• Sleeps 6 comfortably. Two bedrooms have queen beds; one bedroom has 2 bunk beds (e.g., 4 twins), and the loft has a full size bed
• Gorgeous stone fireplace is fun to use year round
• Beautiful walk-in stone shower as well as 2nd bathroom with a shower & tub
• Game closet full of most any board game you can imagine—for kids and adults!
Flat screen hdtv with blu-ray player and dvd selection
Record player with fantastic vinyl collection
