About Craig Melby
Originally from Florida, we grew up we spending time every summer at my parents summer home nearby. Wonderful, lifelong memories were created on each trip, so as I got older I decided to build a place of my own, and big enough for family reunions. I did not originally intend to make this lodge available as a Vacation Rental, but I bumped into a rental owner who convinced me it was a good idea. I tried it, and based on the glowing reports I get from my appreciative renters I am sure I am doing the right thing. This is not your usual Vacation Rental. It is first and foremost my 'mountain house', and is fully stocked with games, DVDs, books, etc. There is almost always unopened food in the pantry and refrigerator that guests are welcome to use at their discretion - no replacement necessary - but I usually find more food than I left!
Craig Melby purchased this House in 2003
Why Craig Melby chose Highlands
We chose this location because it is so close to the gourmet mountain towns of Cashiers and Highlands with their great shopping, dining, golfing, outdoor activities and people. (We see more of our friends up here in the summer than we do at home!) The elevation is cool, the woods are deep and lush, the air is clean and fresh, and the water is the best you will ever drink!
What makes this House unique
Our backyard borders the national forest - we wouldn't have it any other way! Peace and quiet, and nature's beauty are right outside the door. On site we also have a fire pit for campfires and smores, hammock, swings and kids play area, and lots of adventure for the kids. We also rent to lots of wedding parties from weddings in Cashiers and Highlands . . . we're a quality, fun, inexpensive alternative to lots of individual hotel rooms!
