Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: My wife and i have 3 children who have all grown up enjoying the cool summers on the highlands/cashiers plateau. My wife enjoys horseback riding and hiking in the Smokys. I am a residential builder and designer and also enjoy hiking and boating. When not in Highlands we are at home in Knoxville Tn.
Why the Owner Chose Highlands, NC, USA:
Our family fell in love with the Highlands/Cahsiers plateau when we started bringing our daughters to Camp Merrie Woode about 20 years ago. We rented numerous houses and stayed in various inns and resorts until we took the plunge and bought the house you see here. It was in need of much love and as a builder/designer I spent the winter/spring of 2003 in highlands rebuilding this house. We have taken on another building project and have decided to rent this house to friends and folks like you. We are in Highlands for most of the season and would be happy to show you around the area or recommend a great hike, a refreshing swimming hole or one of the many great restaurants in the area.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have spent countless days and weeks at Walden Woods and being able to walk to town or take one of the many day hikes or waterfall walks is a real pleasure.
