About Jane Black

We live in Atlanta, GA about 2.5 hours from Highlands. We love the Highlands atmosphere and plan to spend more time here.

Jane Black purchased this cottage in 2007

Why Jane Black chose Highlands

My grandparents built a vacation home in Highlands in 1935. I visited during the summer while growing up and the area still feels like 'home'. The sound of the creek is what drew us to this current property.

What makes this cottage unique

The weather is delightful all summer and not severe very often during the winter. Gardening is easily successful because of the weather.

Trickledown is near our vacation home, Wagmore. While we are not always there, we are ready to answer any questions or help in any way when we are in residence. Tucked Inn, on the other side of Trickledown, is also on VRBO. It has three bedrooms so there is the possibility of renting both which gives you five bedrooms if it is a larger group.

Consistently wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We continue to come back to Trickledown because we are never disappointed. This cozy two bedroom cottage always overwhelms us and our invited guests. I have commented previously on many occasions concerning the landscaping, interior design, linens, furnishings, firewood, outside grill, etc. No detail has been overlooked. The lull of the roaring Big Creek in the back yard is the most soothing sound we know. We continue coming up from Atlanta every two months. We can't help it!

Although we have experimented with many accommodations in the Highlands/Cashiers area, this is our #1 destination.

As I said, we are ever disappointed!

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed home is in the most picturesque setting you can imagine. This home was perfect for two couples. The upstairs bedroom and bath opens onto a beautiful sitting room. The downstairs bedroom and bath is cozy and quiet. We enjoyed our coffee by the fireplace in the morning and cocktails on the screened porch in the evening. The owner is delightful and the amenities are plentiful. We can’t wait to return to this Highlands gem.

Awesome Visit to Trickledown !!

  • 5 of 5

From the first sound or the rushing water from the creek behind the house to every detail - the visit was absolutely fabulous !!

We were 15 minutes from downtown Highlands which made it perfect to either shop, look for the water falls or have our meals. The cabin was so well appointed that we could have stayed there the entire time and we would love to come back some day to do just that.
