About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Amazing ! Cozy mountain cabin on beautiful, clear, rocky and picturesque mountain stream with 'Central Air'.

Miles of easy hiking just out front door. National Forest across road. Heavily wooded and natural environment. One and one-half miles to the famous 'wild and scenic' Chattooga River which offers excellent trout fishing and local Sliding Rock. Nothing in the world beats good pan-fried trout. There are lots of great hiking trails close-by...

* Main Level: Two Bedrooms (one queen and one pair twin beds), full bath, open living area w/BIG flat, screen TV, dining room, and kitchen (completely and well-furnished).

* Upper Level: Master Bedroom (Queen) and full bath.

* Large covered porch area with plenty of seating surrounded on three sides by mountains... Read or just relax while sipping on your coffee or drink... Cashiers gets a good bit of rain and there is nothing like sitting on the covered front porch curled up with your favorite book while listening to and watching the rain. Enjoy lounging on deck in back with patio set, lounge and very comfortable chairs.

Come, relax and unwind!!! Wade or fish the clear, cold mountain stream... Explore waterfalls, hike the trails to enjoy the natural environment of this area. Listen to the soothing, tumbling waters of the nearby stream, absorb the wildlife sounds of the mountain evenings! This is vacationing at it's finest! You will not be disappointed...

Just five miles to downtown Cashiers, NC. Ten miles to Highlands. Both have many beautiful golf courses, first-class restaurants, antique shops, and boutique shops. For those of you who like to test Lady Luck, it is but a short hour's drive to the Casinos at Cherokee, NC. Beyond Cherokee is Gatlinburg, TN which is approximately another hour away. Both are wonderful scenic drives.

If comparing rates PLEASE consider VERY CAREFULLY. We have ALL taxes and cleaning requirements INCLUDED in our quoted rates. NO HIDDEN COSTS !

Keywords: Mountain Cabin - very private, serene and peaceful. Across from National Forest.

About The Owner

privately owned great get-away in beautiful nature-filled cabin on clear, rocky, mountain stream.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 1993

Why The Owner chose Highlands

Beautiful setting, great stream, privacy, national forest across street and hiking right out the front door. We looked for this perfect piece of heaven for more than 5 years. It had everything we were looking for... privacy, natural setting, heavily wooded and bold stream, yet close to downtown Cashiers and Highlands, both with grocery stores, lots of restaurants and unique shopping experiences.

What makes this cabin unique

Peacefulness, getting away from our hectic day-to-day lives. Beautiful setting with scenic hiking close by. Chattooga River (A designated, Wild and Scenic River) is less than 1 1/2 miles away. Lots of waterfalls, fishing and beautiful golf courses nearby. Favorite hikes: Whiteside Mountain, unique Granite City and the one right out the front door down the hardly traveled road.

Beautiful Cabin in the Woods!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is more beautiful and charming than the pictures show! Peaceful surroundings, well kept and perfectly stocked. The perfect place for a relaxing vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains. The towns of Cashiers and Highlands NC are just minutes away and have great shopping, restaurants and activities. Our family of 8, including two younger children, thoroughly enjoyed our stay over Christmas and NYE. We look forward to our next visit. Also, the hosts were very accommodating and gracious. Thank you for opening your beautiful cabin for families to enjoy! Happy New Year!

A Gem Nestled in the Forest

  • 5 of 5

Spent 3 nights and wish we'd booked longer! It's obvious that this is a well-loved home. Absolutely immaculate, with lots of extra touches (e.g., extremely well-stocked kitchen, comfy chair & couch, overhead fans with extra lights for bright or dimming; hubby especially liked the easy digital lock, satellite TVs in living room and master BR, plus wireless internet). Nice covered front porch with picnic table and swing and rocking chairs on which to read if it rains, pretty deck on back). With windows open, wonderful to have the rushing creek lull you to sleep. A couple of houses are nearby but definitely not intrusive. More places to sit close to the clear, clean, cool stream and commune with nature. Brought our flat-coated retriever mix who delighted in wallowing in the creek (just be sure to bring your own ample dog towels for drying off afterwards!). Plenty of beautiful waterfalls nearby (ex: Cashiers Sliding Rock is only 1 mile from the entrance to Whiteside Forest, turn left onto Whiteside Cove Road, it's on right). Cabin is at the end of a gravel road, nestled in the forest, very quiet and serene - but really easy access to Cashiers for shopping and a super Ingles Grocery. Several restaurants with patio dining outside that allow your dog (Cornucopia, Ugly Dog Public House, Randevu, Slab Town Pizza, Zookeeper Bistro). Jacque is great to work with, our security deposit was returned promptly. Would highly recommend! Kathleen & David, Decatur, GA

Beautiful property. Great creek in the back.

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cabin. We took alot of things to the cabin that were already provided. Quiet, peaceful place. We did lose power late at night one night. We called the owner first thing in the morning and she took care of it. The kids loved playing in the creek behind the property. We would stay here again.
