About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 6)

This charming cottage is situated in a serene setting overlooking Highland's Lake Sequoyah and the Blue Ridge mountains. The 38-foot deck is perfect for viewing gorgeous sunsets and starry nights, lounging on a sunny day, or just taking in the beauty of the lake, mountains, natural surroundings, and fresh North Carolina air.

The stone fireplace lends warmth to a cozy family room with a wood-beamed ceiling, skylight, hardwood floors, and a stunning view of the lake. Some of the amenities you will find include a 40-inch flat-screen High-Def TV, VCR/DVD, CD player, WiFi, games, books, magazines, videos and free long distance service.

Bake some goodies in the country kitchen, which houses all the necessary appliances, supplies, and modern conveniences. Dine indoors looking out bay windows or grill outside and enjoy your meal on the deck with a spectacular view.

Plenty of sleeping quarters with three delightfully decorated bedrooms (king, queen, and two twins).

The king-size and queen-size bedrooms have lake views, cable TV, ceiling fans, comfortable mattresses, quaint antique furnishings and mountain decor. The twin-bedded room also includes cable TV and a ceiling fan. There are two full baths with showers and tubs, plenty of space for toiletries, a half bath off the queen-size bedroom, and a separate laundry room with washer and dryer.

Lakeview is only 1-1/2 miles from the center of Highlands, a great place to shop or dine in some of North Carolina's finest restaurants. Located just minutes from hiking trails, scenic waterfalls, and lake access for canoeing or kayaking. You can ride ATVs, go rappelling, horseback riding, or picnic at a public beach that is less than five minutes away. The winter months are the time for downhill skiing, snow boarding, and tubing, which are all within 15 minutes.

If you want a vacation where you can get away from the fast pace and stress of everyday life, spend some time in Highlands. LAKEVIEW COTTAGE ... your new home-away-from-home.

About Mark & Chris Flaschner

We live in Atlanta GA and have been coming up to Highlands since 1999. It didn't take long for us to fall in love with this magical mountain community and we are sure you will too. Lakeview Cottage is decorated to reflect the spirit of the mountains and is extremely well-maintained and impeccably clean. Escape to Highlands and you will leave with amazing memories that will last a lifetime. Make sure to sign the guest book so you can read about your last stay the next time you come to visit. And there will be a next time...

Mark & Chris Flaschner purchased this cottage in 2002

Why Mark & Chris Flaschner chose Highlands

Lakeview is actually nicer than the pictures show, we have received only exceptional reviews in over 15 years of hosting renters and there are many regular renters that come back every year.

What makes this cottage unique

Cottage is well maintained by owners in the hospitality business. Located less than a 5-minute drive to all the dining and shopping and an spectacular view of Lake Sequoyah.

Guestbook comments from the owner

So much beauty. So easy to relax and do nothing. We enjoyed our stay so much. It feels like coming home each time we visit. Already I can’t wait until next time!

Lakeview is the best!

  • 5 of 5

This was, I believe, our 8th year at Lakeview and each stay is as satisfying and pleasing as the last. Chris and Mark have made Lakeview into a comfortable retreat and/or launching pad for the many activities around and in Highlands. You are able to do as much or as little as you want and still have a wonderful environment. Of course we all have to eat and there are many fine restaurants in Highlands and in Cashiers, a short drive away. Shopping is not bad either! The cottage is always clean, warm and welcoming and really like coming home after a while away. The deck is inviting always - great place for a cup of coffee early or a glass of wine after a trip into town. The owners are always accommodating and responsive; Mark will check on you as you arrive to see that you are finding everything as you expected - I have rented a number of properties and no one ever did that before; cannot beat the customer service!! Somehow we missed a great restaurant on our last trips which we tried this time and were very pleased - Lakeside on Harris Lake just outside of town. Very good food and nice quiet environment with great service. Try it - and do try Lakeview cottage - it is a "keeper"

Perfect getaway cottage for 4 hiking girlfriends!

  • 5 of 5

Our fourth visit to Lakeside Cottage! The attention to every detail and concern for your comfort is why we come back again and again. Mark & Chris check to make sure you are comfortable, but the cottage has everything! Perfectly clean and equipped, it surpasses our expectations every time! This year's hiking was curtailed by rain, but we visited the Nature Center and Botanical Gardens, as well as a morning spent at the Bascom Art Center. These are both activities not to be missed! We can't wait for our fifth annual hiking adventure!

Cozy and clean

  • 4 of 5

Arrived on a Friday and stayed until Sunday. Perfect place for a small family or group. Will sleep 6 comfortably. Rained all weekend, but that was okay, we stayed inside by the fire and watched movies and chatted. Exceptionally clean and decorated oh so cute. Had everything we needed to include linens, towels, dishes, utensils, etc. Keep in mind that the downstairs bedroom and bath is accessed from a narrow spiral staircase from the living area or the outside. The other two bedrooms and bath and a half are located on the main living area. The fireplace is a gas fireplace. The house heats up very nicely in the winter. I would definitely stay here again.
