About Jennifer Roberts

This property has been in our family since the the 30's, when my grandfather helped build it. My mother placed all 14 acres in a conservation easement just months before her death in 2011, and its serenity and rustic character are a legacy to a simpler way of life and a respect and love of nature.

Why Jennifer Roberts chose Sugarfork

This is a cabin where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of electronics and city life. Artists have come here to paint, writers to reflect, and families to enjoy time together. There are numerous places to hike and swim nearby, as well as hikes and waterfalls on the property.

What makes this Cabin unique

When you go to sleep at night, you can hear the waterfall from the bedroom on the side of the house. You can eat on the porch and see the waterfall. The 14 acres make it quiet and peaceful but you are only a 10-minute drive from the town of Highlands, and only 15-20 minutes from Cashiers.

Listening to the waterfall while sitting on the porch was our favorite. Close enough to town for easy access to shopping and dining. This home will be first on our list for future visits to the Highlands area.

                                                                      Peaceful and secluded
