About the Property
Luxury 7 suite mountain retreat with breathtaking views
If you'd like to make an inquiry, please follow instructions at the bottom of this section.
This lovely Highlands mountain home is perched high above a valley between Whiteside and Blackrock mountains with sweeping easterly views of the Smokies.
Bowery Lodge has 8 spacious bedrooms (5 kings, 3 queens) and 8 bathrooms, all well-appointed with high-quality linens, plenty of towels, and bath amenities. Most bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom, view, sitting area, and fireplace. The grand king suite also has a separate sitting area with a crib.
The three interior levels offer many options for gathering together, and plenty of cozy spaces to retreat to. Watch the sunrise or the fog roll in from two levels of decks and balconies, or while enjoying the outdoor fireplace and a soak in the hot tub.
The naturally landscaped lot is situated on a private road with off-street parking for 8 cars (no street parking). There's a short walking trail with rope swing, and a darling playhouse for the kids.
You probably won't want to leave the property...but if you must, Highlands is just 3 miles away down an easy residential road. Stroll along quaint Main Street for some shopping and dining. Or visit our friends at the Highland Hiker for outdoor gear and great local advice on what to do in the area, such as hiking, fishing, golf, swimming holes.
Bowery Lodge is a gathering place for friends and families, and is not available for parties, events, or work retreats.
2016 rates are based on up to 16 guests, are subject to change without notice, and do not include tax.
We accept a maximum of 16 overnight guests (depending on group dynamic), with no more than 18 people in the house at any time. No additional guests (day or overnight) are allowed without prior written approval, and additional charges may apply.
Our calendar is kept up to date with confirmed reservations, but does not reflect pending reservations. Priority is given to family and returning guests, and therefore we're typically unable to confirm 'first-time' bookings until about 6 months prior.
Children are welcome, but the property poses some dangers (cliffs! bears!). We consider total number and ages to determine whether our house is a good fit for your group, and require a ratio of two adults per child to ensure adequate supervision.
For our new guests, we require a referral from a past guest or a reference from another vacation rental owner.
TO MAKE AN INQUIRY, please provide the following:
- specific dates and alternate dates if there's flexibility
- phone number with a good time to call you
- information about your group: # adults with general ages, # children with specific ages, where you're coming from, and the reason for your visit (i.e. family reunion, wedding, golf retreat, etc.).
- what drew you to our place (just a quick detail so I know you're a real person!)
- please also review rates and minimum stay requirements before inquiring.
- We have a 5 night minimum for our standard rate, but do offer shorter stays at an increased rate
- While we do offer discounts to returning guests who've treated our home well, we don't respond to inquiries asking for discounts.
Thanks so much for your time, and I look forward to speaking with you!

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: Hello! My family completed our special mountain home in 1999, and continue to make improvements and additions as our family grows. We still use it often ourselves, and have enjoyed sharing it with other families as a vacation rental since 2010. We're honored and blessed that so many choose to return yearly! I'm the oldest 'kid', and manage bookings for my family from my home in Seattle, WA. I've chosen not to list my phone number after a few too many pushy marketers, as well as some early morning calls due to the time difference; but I do provide it to serious inquirers and welcome the opportunity to tell you more about our special place.
