Nestledown - Peaceful Mountain Retreat!

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

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.

Loved the house and location......

  • 4 of 5

Went with my wife, daughter and son-in-lw to this wonderful cabin. We had a great time and all was in order with one small exception. There were spider webs in upper corners of room and then some "cricket spiders" in the house. Having owned a mountain cabin for 15 years, I understand this issue but someone should have gone through home and noticed before we arrived.

With that said I would definitely return to this cabin as it is nice and everything was in order and provided. We had a good time.

Owner's Response: We strive in every way to make our guests stay at Nestledown as pleasant as possible and take seriously any input from our guests. As a result, the person who cleans will be keeping an even closer eye out for cobwebs and the like. Additionally we have taken further measures to eliminate the likelihood that the crickets will find entry in the future.

Peaceful cozy respite

  • 5 of 5

We escaped to Nestledown during hurricane Irma and couldn't have found a better place. It is quiet, peaceful and has all the comforts of home. Loved the hot tub and the fireplace. The beds were very comfortable and the owner extremely responsive and thoughtful. Highlands is a delightful place to visit. We hope to make it an annual trip.

Wonderful Stay at Nestledown

  • 5 of 5

Nestledown was a beautiful place to stay. Everything was in great shape, and well stocked with all that we needed. It was located within a quick drive into Highlands shopping area and not far from Cashiers either. We'd definitely recommend Nestledown to others, and consider staying again on our next trip.

Splendid Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay at Nestledown. The cottage is very clean and cozy. The location is also ideal. We were able to enjoy Highlands and Cashiers with only a short drive to either. We will be back.
