Property description

Welcome to Nestledown –a peaceful retreat surrounded by native rhododendron nestled amongst the mountains of Highlands, NC. From the moment you enter the driveway you will be drawn to the quaint two bedroom, two bath cottage with a welcoming front porch.

The open floor plan to the great room encourages memorable times with family, friends or that special someone. Skylights allow the natural warmth of the North Carolina sunlight to fill the room. Comfortable furniture and a spacious eating area gives guests a home-away-from-home feeling. Timber accents add rustic charm to this mountain home. A stone fireplace provides additional warmth for those chilly evenings. Each bedroom features Queen beds with ensuite bathrooms and is accompanied by a flat screen TV fed by a satellite connection.

The crisp clean mountain air can be enjoyed from the cozy front porch or stretch out on the expansive two-level deck overlooking the private wooded backyard. The lower level of the deck features a large welcoming Jacuzzi to relax tense muscles or just enjoy the clear North Carolina skies overhead. If you like a little background music to your natural setting, you can enjoy your CDs piped through a pair of outdoor speakers. An open front and side lawn are perfect for outdoor activities.

If you wish to pull yourself away from the tranquility of the cottage, you only have a few minutes drive to downtown Highlands to enjoy world-class dining and shopping. Alternatively, Cashiers affords similar high level entertainment and is nearly as close.
