Great highlands retreat
This house was the perfect place to get away from it all for a few days. Joe is just a great host and the place is spotless. Everything needed was right there in the cabin. Hiking nearby and waking up to birds singing is always a great thing. Plus, it is only minutes away from beautiful waterfalls and shopping in Highlands. We definitely enjoyed our stay and will be back.
Clean, well equipped cabin
Cabin is very clean and equipped with everything needed.
Very nice guest house
This was our second time staying at Joe's house. The property was so peaceful, the house had everything we needed and Joe was very nice to work with and let me change my dates last minute and come a day early.
When I was looking for a cabin for our anniversary getaway the reviews were all so good I thought “if it sounds to good to be true - it probably is”. But they were all true.
Joe is available if needed and his directions and suggestions for restaurants and outdoor activities was greatly appreciated. I highly recommend and would return.
Wonderful stay with our sons
Everything was perfect! House was immaculate and had anything you could ever need. Location was great, short drive to Highlands and close to Clayton. Our boys enjoyed building fires, making s’mores and tubing at Scaly Mountain. Joe responded quickly to messages with any questions. Left a few personal items behind and Joe contacted me to have them sent back...very personable and let us check in early the night before on him to get ahead of some rainy weather. We will definitely be back, such a great place to stay!
We are centrally located between Dillard, Ga and Highlands, NC. In the winter there is a tubing slope and ice skating nearby. National forest is behind the house. Lots of hiking trails in the area. Great Resturants at Highlands, Franklin, Dillard and Clayton.

Why Joe Bartenfeld chose Scaly Mountain
NEW WINTER AND SPRING PRICING! We love the serenity and beauty of this location. We take great pride in its cleaniness. WE DO NOT ACCEPT ANY PETS! I t is tastfully decorated. We back up to the National Forest and enjoy hiking down the trail which connects to the Bartram trail at the base of Scaly Mountain. It is a wonderful place to sit back and relax.
What makes this House unique
We are at the end of the road, it is quiet. It has a camping area for children. It has an outdoor fire-pit. Swing set for Children. The cabin is totally supplied and we are centrally located to Clayton, Ga. and Franklin N.C. and Highlands is just 9 miles away. We DO NOT ACCEPT PETS! We will take infants but prefer children over four years of age. The spring brings the flowering shrubs and plants. The fall bring the beautiful foliage change and the mountains are painted in breathtaking aray of colors. The winters open the canopy for wonderful distant views.
