About the property

Guest House with 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath and full Kitchen

Our mountain home is in a quiet exclusive neighborhood in Highlands. You will enjoy the mountain views from Sagee Mountain, the hiking trails within steps of your front door, while still just 1.5 miles from town with shopping, spas, fine dining and entertainment.

The 1BR/1BA Guest House on our property is the perfect mountain getaway for a couple or small family. You will think you are in a TreeHouse with 100 year old wood floors and large casement windows in the living room overlooking Mountain Laurel and Rhododendron. Like all BearAire properties, the TreeHouse is beautifully decorated and includes a Sleep Number Mattress, upgraded linens, TV/Internet access and complementary concierge services for dinner reservations, pet sitting, etc. from your BearAire hosts.

Also, come visit in the winter with no worries and enjoy the Aspen-like powder snow in the mountains of Highlands. The Treehouse has a generator and our city roads are paved when it snows.

"Didn't want to leave"

  • 5 of 5

My wife and our 6 month old puppy needed an escape from the Atlanta heat and the Treehouse was a wonderful refuge. As advertised it was tastefully appointed,quiet, yet so very close to town. Both Mike and Victoria were incredible hosts. Mike is a very interesting guy and knows all the little details of the Highlands community, which made our stay that much more enjoyable. He was kind enough to make reservations for an envious table at the Veranda restaurant. (We loved the lobster piccata ) Lastly, If you ask nice, Mike might even take you on a car ride in the Morgan! We simply loved the place and everything about our stay and even our puppy made a new best friend , Didn't want to leave but we will certainly be back.

Serene get away nestled in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at The Treehouse for 8 days in late July, early August. Being in the cool mountains was a welcome change from the hot, humid weather in Florida. Our accommodations were clean, comfortable and well-appointed. Mike, our host, was friendly and very helpful, recommending activities , dining options and sights to see in the Highlands.

He even made our 46th wedding anniversary extra special by reserving a table with a beautiful lake view at one of his favorite restaurants and arranging for a surprise champagne toast. A highlight of our stay was going for a scenic ride in Mike's Morgan, which is a hand built British sports car known for its craftsmanship and performance.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at the Treehouse .

Owner's Response: JoAnn, you and George are too kind. You are wonderful guests and it was a pleasure to have you at Treehouse. A ride in the Morgan is always available....even in long as there is no snow. If it's snowing......we can ride in a classic LandRover..! Cheers, and thank you again, Mike
