About the Property

4 bedroom 3 bath home with mountain views, 0.4 mile walk away from town center

Our 'Bear House' is conveniently located within the city limits of Highlands, NC. A quiet neighborhood away from it all yet only a short walk to town, Old Edwards Inn, Main Street shopping, restaurants, and more outdoor activities then anyone could hope for. Great home for a family or for two separate families or couples to share.

When booking, please only count adults and children over 13 years of age under the total occupants. you can specify in the notes how many children under 13.

*Upstairs: main living area, kitchen, dining, and living rooms all together - a great social space. Two cozy bedrooms and two baths as well as a covered and screened-in deck. Lots of light and fresh air!

*Downstairs: two more bedrooms and a shared bathroom. Separate entrance - great for privacy when you have a large crowd! Private covered and screened patio downstairs as well as a deck with outdoor seating! Please note: to get to the downstairs area, you will have to use the staircase that is located outside. We have added a second spiral staircase that goes from covered patio (upstairs) to covered patio (downstairs). This is to help families visiting with children.

Bedrooms are configured with:
Upstairs Bedroom 1 = 1 Queen Bed
Upstairs Bedroom 2 = 1 Queen Bed
Downstairs Bedroom 3 = 1 Queen Bed
Downstairs Bedroom 4 = 2 twin sized beds (Bunks) (upper bunk is suitable for children only)

Comfortably sleeps 6 Adults (and up 2 Children) and your furry friend. Yes, we welcome dogs with a 'bring your dog on vacation' fee.

The walk to town is short - Main Street starts just a 7 minute walk away! (Old Edwards Inn is 7 to 10 minutes walking distance) Parking for up to 3 cars. Very private road with minimal traffic.
