About Neil and Cheryl Moulton

Hello! We bought this home from a friend who called and said, 'you love our house so much, do you want to buy it?' We had visited Highlands for years and we did not even hesitate to say, 'YES'. We had stayed at almost all the hotels and bed and breakfasts and a couple rental homes and never really enjoyed any place as much as this home. And all of a sudden it could be ours!!! We renovated, added on, decorated and now it is 'home away from home'! Just 2 1/2 hours from Atlanta we go all the time, and it truly is our little piece of heaven!

Neil and Cheryl Moulton purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Neil and Cheryl Moulton chose Highlands

We like the total privacy of the surrounding woods, the great Mountain view in the winter, the one level 'Ranch' style for our old knees and we like that every bedroom has its own private bath! We added a full office with Wifi and fax and have updated all the rooms. It has two fireplaces, one with remote control and one wood burning. It has wonderful air conditioning!! We love the deck and the hot tub!! It is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What makes this cottage unique

It is within one mile to town for shopping, restaurants, church, and groceries!!!

perfect for our large family

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our large family. Everybody was comfortable and had their own space. The hot tub and fireplaces were a nice bonus. It took us only about 5 minutes to get to downtown too. Very convenient! Owners were very responsive in any messages I sent them. We would stay there again for sure! The only thing is though, I thought it was on the lake or at least walking distance. It's not. You would have to drive down to the lake to access it. Very gorgeous though.

Definitely 5 Stars mountain style

  • 5 of 5

This charming home is tucked away in the woods on a hillside near Mirror Lake. On a dead-end road and very quiet. Extremely comfortable and well-equipped. Just a few minutes from Main Street in Highlands. I would go back in a heartbeat.
