Conveniently located. 20 minutes from Downtown Highlands on the Atlanta side. Less than 2 hours from Atlanta.

Enjoying the mountains

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely beautiful and the view is spectacular. There are numerous things to do/see close by. We appreciated the seclusion of the house and completely enjoyed our visit.

Fantastic Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! We came for 3 nights over Thanksgiving and really enjoyed our time. We had 5 adults and a small child. There was a great amount of space (we loved the 2 sitting/living rooms), a well stocked kitchen and grill and great outdoor space. The views are incredible and the pictures extremely accurate. We'll definitely come back!

Our family rented this home for a week and enjoyed it very much. It was my husband and I and our 2 adult children couples, It was the perfect floor plan. The main level was spacious, warm and functional, where we enjoyed meals and playing games. The lower level provided room for the younger couples to sleep and have time together. Each level had outside porches to views the gorgeous scenery. The photos we saw of the rental were accurate and all of the amenities were in working order. The home was clean and fully equipped with everything we could want. Of course, we shopped for the food we cooked. I probably worried the manager to death with questions before our arrival, but he never seemed annoyed! We ate many fabulous meals in the Highlands. We dined at Paoletti's, Cyprus, Wild Thymes, The Bistro on the Hill, The Pizza Place and had ice cream at Sweet Treats! We found a great consignment store, Victoria's Closet. Also, found great gifts at Bear Mountain Outfitters, Hen House Condiments and Highland's Fine Art. We enjoyed a relaxing massage at Tranquility Cove. There were several trails right by the house that we hiked, and many more in the Highlands. The only thing that was a little stressful was that Highland Gap Road is narrow and 2.5 miles long and we were unaccustomed to mountain driving at first. But as the week progressed, we became old hats with the road. It does have beautiful scenery on it, as a waterfall.

Brand new immaculate family friendly with plenty of privacy

  • 5 of 5

Grilled steaks on the back porch while the family enjoyed the rocking chairs and mountain view. A great value with a lot of nearby activities. We visited many of the local hiking trails and streams. Shopping and restaurants just a short drive. All the amenities you need to make you feel right at home including a well supplied kitchen and fast reliable internet. The kids had a great time and we are already planning to return to “Rocking Ridge” in the fall.

Far enough in off the main road to be peaceful and quiet yet close enough to town to make the trip effortless, this mountain home offers the best of both worlds. The home is located a couple miles off the main highway, which makes it perfect for a relaxing mountain getaway. The views off of the huge back porch are spectacular, making it the perfect place to enjoy some quality time with your loved ones. However, if you are in the mood for a different type of scenery, the town of Highlands, NC is an easy drive, only a few miles away. This town offers a variety of things to do. Highlands is home of the famous Old Edwards Inn, where you can enjoy their spa. The Highlands downtown area also offers many unique shops that you can peruse. This area also has quite a few scenic golf courses, one of which is located in Highlands. Come see for yourself, and enjoy a relaxing stay in a beautiful mountain home.
