About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Located in the Smokey Mountains of North Carolina, Highlands has been described by some as "the up and coming Aspen of the East". Picturesque and quaint, you will find the downtown area friendly, and full of welcoming faces. There are many varied ways you will find to enjoy yourself in Highlands and the surrounding area. Beautiful waterfalls, zip line, hiking trails, golf courses, horse back riding, art and cultural events, historical sites, unique boutiques, art galleries, and sumptuous restaurants are all available. Ski slopes are within driving distance.

Visit the Nature Museum and wild flower gardens (take a walk around the lake and find a spot to eat lunch), enjoy the nightly auctions at Scudders Galleries during summer, or watch the sun set on Sunset Rock with someone special. Whether it's enjoying a lecture by a visiting professor, taking a Ikebana class at Stone Lantern, or making time to delve into your latest favorite read, you will enjoy our lakeside cottage for its' convenience, beauty, and comfort.

This romantic lakeview cottage is ideal for a complete couples' retreat, honeymoon hacienda, or family fun time. Ideal for a writers' retreat, too! Enjoy the serenity of the lake from the porch in your rocking chair while sipping hot chocolate or coffee each morning, enjoy the warmth and comfort of the steam shower, or take a walk into the National Forest path connected to the neighborhood to whet your sense of adventure. Utilize WIFI throughout the house. Total renovation completed in 2008 makes it a beautiful and comfortable experience you'll enjoy.

Manager info

About: In the winter ice skating is available at a downtown lake at times. Thanksgiving parade and sales downtown are big draws. Christmas parade. The steam sauna warms us from winter hikes. At times we have taken a toasty sleeping bag onto the back large deck, and watched the stars w/mugs of hot chocolate. In warmer weather, we have enjoyed zip lining, pontoon boating on Lake Glenville to the falls, gem stone hunting, hiking, observing wild flowers and birds, picnicking at our favorite spot at Whiteside Mountain, sunning and swimming in the area rivers, watching the sun set over Highlands at Sunset Rock, sharing meals at the many sumptuous restaurants, and the shopping in Highlands for more than 20 years. We know you will find your own special experiences when you visit Highlands, too.

Why Highlands, NC, USA:
Ease of getting to this location, the views of the lake, closeness to hiking trails, the tennis courts, proximity to downtown Highlands being only 10 minutes.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our property provides us the benefit of having beautiful surroundings in which to have fun and just relax, or be active w/tennis and hikes in a beautiful and serene environment. The serenity helps us feel refreshed with each and every visit--even when the weather is not ideal.
