Property description

Enjoy a peaceful cabin getaway on Apple Lake, 5 minutes from Highlands, NC. Highlands is a small charming mountain town with great restaurants, spa, theatre, music concerts, and shopping. At over 4100 feet in elevation, there is rarely a hot summer night. This cabin has large cathedral ceilings, a huge wood burning stone fire place, and jacuzzi. Minutes from scenic waterfalls, and hiking trails. Enjoy cooking your own meals, paddle a kayak on the lake or fish for bass or brim, sit on one of two decks and watch the hummingbirds fly by. Wonderful for a family vacation or romantic getaway!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: Our family of five has enjoyed visiting and playing at the cabin for over twenty-five years. We moved to Atlanta, Ga. to be closer to the cabin and share our love of nature with our 3 children. We hike, swim, fish, kayak and enjoy sharing our cabin with friends and guests.

Why the Owner Chose Highlands Hills (Highlands, NC, USA):
We bought this cabin because it is next door to our family cabin of 54 years. Enjoying the cool summer weather and outdoor activities this area has to offer has been our summer fun for as long as I can remember.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Our home was originally owned by an artist couple who designed it after their loft in Paris. They became close family friends. When we bought the cabin we expanded it, trying to keep the light airy feeling of the original cabin. From our decks we view a variety of wildlife and birds. At night we only hear the sounds of the bullfrogs in the lake. So peaceful.
