About Sandlin

My wife and I started coming to Highlands 7 years ago. Being from Alabama we enjoy the almost 20 degree difference in temperature during our hot summer months. Wonderful restaurants, friendly residents and the many activities have made us appreciate our discovery in the Smoky Mountains.

Sandlin purchased this house in 2011

Why Sandlin chose Smoky Mountains

We looked for the perfect house for almost 3 years before we found the Tree House. When we first drove up, we knew this was the one.

What makes this house unique

We are close to town and shopping, but because of our location you have your privacy. Our log house is surrounded by a forest of towering white pines and hardwoods. An indoor and an outdoor fireplace makes for an enjoyable afternoon or evening.

Perfect house for a mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this house--a group of 7 of us stayed in the house for a friends wedding weekend. The house fit us all comfortably and was the perfect place for our stay. We spent a lot of time outside in the hot tub and on the covered porch with the fire going. The house is not far from town either, so it was a convenient location. The owners were very welcoming and responsive to various inquiries. I would highly recommend for a mountain weekend!

Owner's Response: I'm so glad you had a good visit. The porch is pretty amazing if I do say so. Hopefully you can come back and relax again. The fall is a great time to visit as well as the spring & summer. Carol

Treehouse is a wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the Highlands and the Treehouse was a big reason why. We booked four couples over the eclipse weekend. We knew we the Highlands would be crowded and resolved to cook all our meals at the house. The Treehouse has a great kitchen which was well stocked for our needs. Between that and the grill we had no problems feeding our family and enjoying the beautiful porch with fireplace. The property is just a short few minutes walk to main street, but affords great privacy. We really enjoyed it and would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Glad you had fun. When you booked it I was clueless to the eclipse dates & wondered why someone would book Friday -Tues. DUH we had to go to Tennessee to have our viewing. Glad you had a good time. We had spent a month up there in July and Aug. It's so relaxing. Hope you went to Sunset rock at some point.

A girl's weekend in style!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Tree House over Memorial Day weekend and had a great time! It was our first time to be in Highlands, NC and we will be back!!! The Tree House was perfect for our group and fit 12 girls comfortably with room to spare. The house is in a great spot and walking distance from downtown. Two days we took a 10-15 minute ride to Whiteside Mountain for a hike and to Dry Falls and Glen Falls for site seeing. We were impressed on how spacious and open the living area was. We were able to cook supper and visit with everyone in the den or on the outside porch. The house was very well kept and it felt like home for a couple of days. I highly recommend the Tree House... You won't be disappointed!

Treehouse is the epitome of Highlands!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Treehouse to be our home base for our daughters' wedding in Highlands. In the past, we have rented homes higher up on the mountain for the views. Treehouse gives you the best of both worlds. This beautiful home is walking distance to town while making you feel like you're in a treehouse. The peaceful beauty from the lovely porch with a roaring fire was perfect for our bridesmaids breakfast. The inside of the house is beautifully rustic in keeping with the feel of Highlands. Three levels give everyone their privacy. The owners were delightful and so helpful. I enjoyed talking to Carol several times before our wedding week. If you stay in Treehouse, you won't be disappointed!!
