Anything outdoors - thats what attracts us to Highlands, western North Carolina, and the mountains. We travel all over the world seeking out beautiful scenery, hikes, waterfalls, and adventures! Some of our favorite trails are within a few miles of Highlands, NC. Have we found the perfect place for our mountain cottage?
Justin purchased this Cottage in 2013
Why Justin chose Highlands
We have been coming to Highlands area for years for the hiking, waterfalls, and adventures. It was only time before we found the perfect cottage for us!
What makes this Cottage unique
Feels like a real cottage. Close enough to walk yet feels off the beaten path! Great location, location, location, location! Some of our favorite trails and waterfalls are minutes away. Or go canoeing in one of the beautiful nearby lakes, also only minutes away.

The house is really wonderful and close into town. It has everything we could need and very cozy. Our family spent five nights and enjoyed exploring the area of Highlands.

We had an amazing week-long Thanksgiving vacation at Bear Cottage! This was our fourth stay at this property and we will be back again!
Home away from home!
We had a wonderful time at The Bear House! It was comfortable with all the amenities you could wish for, peaceful and beautiful surroundings. The grandson loved the Wi and the Roku was nice also, we had family over for supper and had a movie night! The beds are amazing! So comfortable and I would love to know where they got their sheets! I want some for home! I would stay there again in a heartbeat! Thanks Justin for allowing us to use your beautiful home!
We enjoyed staying here. The house was nice for our family trip to highlands. The home was close to town and a short drive from the water falls. Three bathrooms were a nice touch and the washer dryer combo was a nice feature.
Served our purposes well for lodging nephews and guests at a wedding.
Lots of waterfalls, hiking, and other outdoor activities New HVAC system added April 2014
