Amazing mid-century home with the best views in the world

  • 5 of 5

This is a most unique home! Almost as if Frank Lloyd Wright stopped half way between Highlands and Cashiers and decided to build. However he is not the architect but might as well have been. Everything is wood, natural light, nature and views but all upgraded for 2018 luxury comfort. State of the art decks, baths and other upgrades. We've been going since 2014.

One of a kind!

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Whiteside Villa every year for close to 10 years. The spectacular views and the cool mountain air (this year, in July, we awoke to temps of 58 degrees with highs of about 70 degrees) have been a constant from the beginning. Where else can you be above the clouds and see hawks and aircraft flying below you as you look south into South Carolina and it's mountain-fed lakes- Jocassie, Keowee, and Hartwell and beyond? This iconic Frank Lloyd Wright style home on the edge of a cliff at an altitude of more than 4800 feet is unique, and Anne, the owner, makes improvements every year for your enjoyment and comfort. This is a special place!

One of the finest properties in all of Highlands.

  • 5 of 5

As a 20 year renter of this property, I'm amazed that it just keeps getting better every year. The owner continues to update and add on to the property in a way that makes for a better and unique experience each year. Although the beautiful view is a constant, the comfort of the annual improvements make all the difference.

Awesome home and location!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third wonderful visit to Whiteside Villa. The home is so impressive, with many nooks and crannies to enjoy. Wherever you are in the home, you have a panoramic view of the mountains. We had two deer visit us near the home one day during our morning walk. We also enjoyed watching the Peregrine falcons daily. Anne is a terrific host who responds quickly to any questions that you have. If you have an opportunity to book a stay at Whiteside Villa, don’t pass it up. You won’t regret it.

The BEST VIEWS on the top of Whiteside Mtn.

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from the best vacation ever. Whitesidevilla is the highest home on the mtn. Entrance gate secured & very private. Three beautiful bedrooms with the upper two having their own private decks. Magnificent mountain and cove views from every room. Large outside covered & open decks with plenty of super comfortable loung chairs and couches. You'll never want to leave the decks. The hummingbirds & perigan falcons visit often. Walking out the front door about 200' up thru Desoto's 1504 campground you meet the Wilderness Trail taking you to the top to see the highest cliffs east of the Mississippi. Then come back and relax in the Jacuzzi which is enclosed by one way glass extended out over the deck with killer views. Eating out in Cashiers try Rendezvous for great breakfast,lunch or dinner. Save Wynslows for a special dinner. Only a 8 top so make reservations. Highlands Mountain Fresh Grocery and Dustys meat market have outstanding take out and eat in at the grocery. You'll find yourselves bring your meals back to the house, the decks and the views. Totally and tastefully decorated and furnished. You'll never want to stay in another house in the mountains other than this one.

Whiteside Villa in North Carolina

  • 5 of 5

This spectacular house built on a Mountaintop built by hand is the most beautiful house I have ever seen in my life. Brick by Brick this person built this house for his family. It's absolutely gorgeous, very modern I wish This year was our fourth year coming to the mountain and every time we have to leave we are very sad but look forward to coming back the next year. The house has three bedrooms. One master bedroom and 1 guest bedroom is upstairs and one large bedroom downstairs it has everything you need. It is a 3 bedroom 3 bath. The guest bathroom is amazing, it has a Jacuzzi that looks out over the mountain with glass surrounding it so while you're taking a Jacuzzi or a shower you're looking out over the mountains. In the master bathroom the shower is made of the same rock that the outside is made of and it is just breathtaking. There are great hiking trails that lead right from the back of the house to go to the top of Whiteside Mountain and there are also great waterfalls in the area very close by to visit and Explore. Once you've been here you will come back year after year because it is that amazing. Now the outside patio is spectacular they have plenty of outside furniture for large groups of people and have done additions to the patio which is just amazing how they can build these things off of a Mountainside. I promise you once you come here you'll be coming back year after year after year and your children will start bringing their children year after year after year. Enjoy! We do!
