Games, maps to waterfalls, restaurant guides and golf course locations, info on zip lining, rafting, ice skating, swimming, and more in the area, are in the tourist basket.

At the red birdhouse, the long winding driveway takes you up to the hill top private paradise with a winter mountain view, beautiful N.C. hardwood trees and an awesome wrap around party deck with a year round 8 person Hot Tub! There is plenty of seating on the deck with an umbrella table and chairs, and a 8 person picnic table! With the lighted torches, the remote control fire pit going, the outdoor heater ablaze, and twinkling lights on the deck banister, fire up the gas grill and enjoy an atmosphere compared to none at night!

The newer furnishings and freshly painted interior are beautiful and you will love the bear collection throughout the home. Extras there too: pet crate, lawn chairs, picnic supplies, movies and games!

The In- town location is just 5 minutes to the grocery, restaurants, ice cream, and shopping! Walk down the hill to Mirror Lake where you can take our canoe and enjoy the lake! Hike around the Mirror Lake community...lovely any time of year! And there is nothing like hiking to all the waterfalls, and the mountain parks. Enjoy cocktails on Sunset Rock or Glen Falls just minutes away! The location and setting can not be duplicated!

If you insist on working while on vacation, we do have high speed internet, computer, Wifi, fax , printer/copier, a cell phone booster, and desk supplies.

There is nothing like relaxing in the cool mountains of North Carolina at the Lazy Bear Cottage at 4200 ft. elevation in the summer time or when it snows! Don't miss this wonderful little peace of heaven!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: 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!

Why the Owner Chose Mirror Lake (Highlands, NC, USA):
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It is within one mile to town for shopping, restaurants, church, and groceries!!!
