Highlands is well known as a superb destination for a relaxing mountain vacation with all of the attributes of a much larger city. There are many award winning restaurants, art galleries, boutique shopping, fine arts festivals, music, as well as hiking in the cool mountain air. Visit for a while and you'll want to return!
Year Purchased: 1972
About the owner: Visits here are always rejuvenating for everyone! The cool mountain forests, nearby Mirror Lake, the ever-present sound of the nearby waterfall, and the vast entertainment opportunities make for an ideal relaxing vacation. We love including family and friends for a step back to an easier life-style. Living in Atlanta we are only 2 hours away from the hustle and bustle of the big city. Just a few days here allows for a great attitude adjustment in our hectic city lives!
Why the Owner Chose Mirror Lake (Highlands, NC, USA):
Our family has owned Trail's Inn for 40 years! Originally purchased by my Dad to escape the summer heat of Florida, we have had the opportunities to create so many family memories through the years.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Highlands has so many different hiking trails that we try a different one on each visit. With the shops, restaurants, and art galleries so nearby, there is always something to do. However, we often find that just sitting in the sun room or by the fire reading away the afternoon is the best alternative!
