Why Mary Jo chose Scaly Mountain

This house is nestled in the woods with gorgeous views and a flowing waterfall. The sounds of nature permeate your surrounding. It is secluded for those who seek a quiet nature setting but it also is located in an area where you can venture out and find the 'thrill' that only this area can bring! That's why I had to have it!!

What makes this house unique

Privacy, privacy and privacy!!!!

Hiking, shopping, wineries and dining out too : )

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house! Great area! There is so much to do in a weekend! Loved hiking down to the gorgeous waterfall covered in snow. Tubing at the Scaly Outdoor Center was awesome. Highlands is a beautiful mountain town. We will definately be back!

It is a great cabin getaway! Please note the road is a typical mountain road and an SUV is recommended and as Mary Jo will tell you it is narrow and dark :)

Defines quaint and cozy

  • 5 of 5

Situated in a very secluded area with an incredible views of the mountains..Our dogs were enthralled with the area, and, as did we, enjoyed the beautiful hikes in the immediate area, to the streams and waterfalls..Absolutely gorgeous..Great fun snow tubing at the bottom of the hill.The very cozy home home had all, plus more, of the basic necessities...Mary Jo proved to be the perfect hostess in getting a couple of small issues resolved in a very timely manner...5 STARS!..Should note; 3 exceptional restaurants in Dillard....The Cupboard Cafe...The Valley Cafe and of course the famous Dillard House.Enjoy!

Amazing spot!

  • 5 of 5

Super clean, stocked and maintained cabin we have vacationed plenty and this is the best place we have found. Our dogs loves the freedom. It was amazing to be in the woods enjoying nature but close enough to town (20 min to Highlands) to enjoy the amenities. We will certainly be back. Thank you Mary Jo.

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay here! Property is stunning with plenty of trails to hike and an amazing waterfall! This home has everything you could possibly need! Snow tubing at the end of the road and Highlands NC is just a few miles away. It is a dog friendly town with lots of cute shops. It was wonderful bringing our dogs with us and they had plenty of room to run and play!

Relaxing and Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed every moment of it. We got to visit four waterfalls including the waterfalls in thr backyard of the cabin. We went snow tubing and zip lining. All of these adventures were within distance of the hideaway cabin. Even my dogs enjoyed nature walks and meeting other animals in the neighborhood. I loved that your cabin is nestled in a private woodlands.

Perfect. Just as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

We hiked, we ate marshmallows by the fire, we ate, we drank, we laughed. In short, we had a blast. Mary Jo's place is warm and cozy and nestled nicely on the side of the mountain, so if you like mountain getaways, this is your place. Thanks, Mary Jo!
