Property description


Wow!!! Come and see why we have been booked every single weekend last skiing season!!! The summer looks busy and we already booking fall!!!

Thank you for a great winter and spring season, welcome summer!!!

We do not stop improving. And we are listening to you!!! New for the summer- a new Keurig coffee machine so that you feel at home. We just added more movies to our collection and we keep adding cool decorating details. Come and see by yourself!!!

Come enjoy this mountain paradise! Just off Fie Top!!! Extremely easy access through paved roads!!! You are not on a busy road, you are not in a subdivision- you are in a quiet mountain paradise!!! Being renters ourselves, we wanted to be as close to the top of the mountain as possible and have all the modern amenities combined with the rustic charm of a log home. We found it in this house!!!

Come visit High Top Retreat and enjoy the mountain view; the air at 4,600 ft high; the sound of the creek; the brand new hot tub; the walk around the property; the short commute to Ghost Town (only 1 mile) and so much more...

This is a spacious 3-level log home featuring 3 bedrooms (1 at each level), 3 bathrooms and 3 living areas (one on the main level, one on top level in loft and one on bottom level). Additional futons in loft and bottom level provide sleeping for up to 10 people.

The house has never been rented before and after renting in the area for 4 years we tried to get you everything you need in our mountain paradise so that you feel right at home.

Of course, we could not forget the hot tub- brand new luxurious hot tub overlooking the mountain.

We have a game room with 5 games game table- air hockey, basketball, archery, tennis and football.

You do not have to worry about anything- we have soaps, detergents, paper products to get you started...

We even have a special surprise for all of our guests waiting for them in the cabin since we are so excited to be your hosts!!! Just give us a call and come enjoy this mountain retreat!!!

When you stay at High Top Retreat, a child (17 and under) will receive a free lift ticket to Cataloochee Ski Area any non-holiday Monday through Friday, with a parent, at least 21 years old, purchasing a full price adult day, twilight, or night lift ticket.

Two flat screen TVs on two different levels- you can have your own and the kids can have theirs!!! A game room with 5 games game table- tennis, air hockey, basketball, archery and football!!!
